I don't know about you, but winter months cause my skin to become parched. Yes, my skin becomes thirsty! My cleansers need to be in top working order, so my skin doesn't miss a beat. I've dabbled in many different cleansers, but have found my 3 current non-toxic faves. I think you'll find one, out of the three, that suits your skin too. After all, if you're single your mug has to be rockin' the “A” game, and if you're married (like me)…well you just want to trick your husband into thinking you've still got it!
*A little disclaimer…If you're on a budget, which most of us are, I would stick to a smaller budget for a cleanser, and invest more into creams, and serums. Think about it, a cleanser is off your face in 20 seconds or less, and down the drain. However, serums and creams are the opposite. They stay on your skin the longest, and do majority of the work. These guys get the job done When it comes to anti-aging, repairing, and rejuvenating. invest in them.
Drum Roll Please…
This has been a tried and true cleanser for me, whether it's winter or summer. It really changes with the seasons quite well. First of all, I love the price. It's $14.99, for a good sized tube, and usually you can find it on sale for 20% off. Not to mention, the ingredients are super pure. A lot of natural cleansers don't foam, and many people who switch over from main stream products, have a hard time with this. They're used to the ultra foaming cleansers that strip your face…ring a bell? Well, fortunately for all you foam lovers, this cleanser is for you. It offers a bit of foam, yet still creamy in texture, without stripping your skin. Have I mentioned the smell? Refreshing and clean. Removes all makeup, and leaves skin feeling clean but not tight. I would recommend this cleanser for those with oily/combination skin.
First off, the smell of this lovely cleanser is divine! It smells like tropical paradise…if that's even a smell or possible. It's texture is more oil like. Sorry all you foam lovers, this cleanser doesn't foam. But I still love it! After cleansing, my face feels perfectly clean, smooth, and balanced. The price is a bit heftier than the previous Acure cleanser. At $38, it should deliver, and thankfully it does. Oh and it comes in a glass pump bottle, which my inner green goddess loves. If you're skin is dry/combination this is your baby.
Last but not least, the most hydrating cleanser of them all. This cleanser takes the cake when it comes to moisture! Skin feels so supple after using it. It removes all makeup easily, and even doubles as an eye-makeup remover. The formula is so gentle, it's perfect for the most sensitive skin, and is great for calming redness. I love that it's alcohol free too! It comes with a muslin cloth, meant to help remove any extra residue. It's nice, but you could use a regular washcloth as well. It is the priciest of all the cleansers at $50. Although the price is pretty steep, I will say for those who have struggled with sensitive skin, you may have found your needle in the haystack. I've heard countless testimonies from sensitive skin peeps who swear they have finally found a cleanser that works, and doesn't irritate. A definite must for those who have dry/sensitive skin.
