3 Great Cleansers for Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can be the biggest nightmare when looking for skincare products. I've spent more money than I care to admit on ridiculously expensive cleansers, drugstore cleansers and everything in between. Ultimately, it has taken me years to find cleansers that make my skin feel clean and not stripped out or dry. I have used all of these cleansers in combination with each other (double cleansing) and they all work well. I would recommend to anyone to invest in skincare and buy drugstore makeup (if there had to be a toss up!). Makeup is only as good as the skin you put it on!

Jurlique Rose Moisture Cleanser, £18.50
Don't let the "foaming" by line fool you on this product. The ultra creamy product smells divine and leaves skin feeling soft. A small amount is all that is required. I was super impressed by the consistency of this product and the anti-oxidant ingredients really help to make it a great cleanser. The whole Jurlique line is very impressive as is the brand's history- it's all created on a biodynamic farm in Southern Australia. This is a great cleanser for both day and night.
Best for: dry and sensitive skin

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, £28
Oskia is a brand, like Jurlique, that I have truly fallen in love with. This cleanser comes in a pump (extra marks just for this) and is dispersed in a thick, orange gel form. The super-powered cleanser includes Vitamins A, C and E and pumpkin enzyeme (hence the colour!). Like all Oksia skincare, the natural ingredients including their special MSM complex make this cleanser a hero products. I prefer to keep this cleanser for night time as it's quite rich. I would occasionally use it in the morning if my skin was very dehydrated or I had a late (*gin induced*) night.
Best for: tired skin

Yon-Ka Lait Nettoyant, £29.50
Since having a Yon-Ka facial with Deborah Harper in 2014, I have not put this down. I'm on my second bottle- always a good sign of how much I like something! As with the other two brands featured, Yon-Ka uses natural ingredients to maximise skin care benefits. I love this cleanser as it can be used on the eyes too. The milk texture leaves the skin super silky. I apply it to damp skin and remove with a warm flannel. Often I will use this as my makeup remover and use one of the other cleansers to make sure my skin is as clean as possible.
Best for: lazy girls, if you travel a lot
