The perfect cleanser for the girl on the go

Sometimes I only have time to wash my door and run out the door. I seem to spend a lot of time doing my makeup on the go at the minute (foundation, blusher, mascara-done!) so I get great joy when I get to wash my face in the morning and again at night.

I have been using Tropic Smoothing Cleanser, £15* for a few weeks in the morning and again at night. I honestly didn't think I was going to like it. It seemed very similar to Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish which I used to like but not love. Cleanse and Polish never fully removed my eye makeup and I always had to go back in with an oil. However, I was so wrong. This product is fantastic- removes all makeup (including tough eye makeup) in a gentle manner and then is rinsed with warm water and the bamboo cloth provided. It feels thicker than a lotion but less than a balm. Two pumps is enough to cover my whole face and the cloth lightly exfoliates the skin. This has been an absolute pleasure to use and reminds me a lot of my favourite Yon-Ka that retails for more than twice the price of the Tropic Smoothing Cleanser. I would highly recommend this for all skin types and best of all, it's all natural! Previously when I have used all natural products, they have irritated my sensitive skin but this has made my skin feel clean, nourished and I feel like my skin texture generally looks a bit better. I follow my cleanser with Nuxe Creme Fraiche de Beaute Light* which moisturises and mattifies and I also stick a bit of Bliss Fabulips Balm on my lips so they don't dry out. This makes for a perfect base for makeup but also, a hydrated and clean face for bed.

I absolutely love the Tropic Smoothing Cleanser and for £15, I think it's great value for money.
