Cleansing your skin daily is essential even if you don’t wear makeup that day. All the dirt, grease, and dead skin cells need to be removed, or else it is a straight way to redness, inflammation, and clogged pores. What is also important is choosing gentle cleansers that are beneficial for your skin. Although lately, I’ve been opting for a toner to cleanse my skin more and more, I still have a selection of cleansers that I use on rotation, depending on my skin’s needs.
First up is Gallinee Foaming Facial Cleanser (120 ml for $25) for sensitive skin. Gallinee creates natural beauty products with prebiotics and probiotics, a great way to nourish and take care of your skin’s microbiome. This is my second bottle of this foam cleanser, and although I don’t use it quite often, I like having it for those days when I wear makeup and want my skin extra clean. The scent of this cleanser is rather strong, so you need to get used to it. However, I did not notice any irritation or redness on my sensitive skin.
One of my favorite toners of all time is this Evolve Organic Beauty Liquids Radiance Glycolic Toner ($27/£20 for 100ml). I have a full review in detail of why it’s so good and why I have repurchased it twice already. Basically, it contains natural fruit AHA (glycolic acid from sugar cane, malic acid from apples, and citric acid from citrus fruits) and BHA (from willow bark extract). Both of these ingredients gently work as exfoliants that eliminate dead skin cells and flaky skin, leaving the skin refreshed, renewed, and radiant. No more clogged pores or annoying dry patches. I wouldn’t suggest using it daily, but it can be used few times a week for the best results.
Nourish Kale 3D Cleanse* ($30/£25 for 100ml) is the newest addition to my skincare routine. It’s a fun-to-use cream face wash that changes color from opaque white to light green when in contact with water. The ingredient list is pretty impressive, with hyaluronic acid, probiotics, and kale that help achieve protected, refreshed, and detoxified skin. I also like its elegant packaging with a pump.
After finishing up Pacifica’s Coconut Water Micellar Toner, I turned to this Jonzac Moisturizing Micellar Water. Jonzac is a French organic skincare company, and since the French are infamous for their quality skincare, I wanted to give this cleanser a try. First of all, the bottle is huge. It’s 500ml, which is rare for a cleanser to come in this size. Second, I expected way more from it. I don’t know. Even though it claims to be moisturizing, it tends to dry my skin a bit by leaving it thin and dry. I’m at the end of this bottle, so I’ll be looking for gentler options for my skin for sure.
So that’s it for today’s review. Did you enjoy it? Please share your favorite natural cleansers with me!
