Cleanse off

You've already got a wardrobe full of clothes, fragrances and possibly lipsticks. Here's why you should be splurging on one for your skin

As a beauty editor, I get wide access to lots of products. And one of the things I always keep in my bathroom are two to three kinds of cleansers for my different skin needs. When I'm wearing heavy sunscreen or foundation, an oil cleanser will help to remove most of it (though I always go over it with a cleansing water after). When I need a deep cleanse, I try a gel or foam texture. Finally, on days when my skin is feeling extra dry, I always reach for a milk cleanser. But while it may seem indulgent for non-beauty industry folk to have several cleansers at one time, here's why you shouldn't be afraid to have more than one of this skincare essential on your bathroom sink. Sometimes your skin needs a double (or triple) cleanse. And on days when you're just using one cleanser, at least you have a few options. Oh yes, and if you live with a male partner or even an annoying sibling, it's quite likely you'll find your cleanser diminishing at an alarming rate.
Softening Cleansing Foam and Clarifying Cleansing Foam
Clé de Peau Beauté seems to understand our obsession with cleansing with their newly-revamped Platinum White Cleansing Collection. With seven cleansing options, the categories are so precise there are even two types of cleansing foams depending on your skin type. More than just makeup removers and skin purifiers, these well-formulated products also moisturise the skin, and help to bring out the complexion's radiance. Standouts for us in the collection are the Softening Cleansing Foam that foams into a creamy lather and imbues skin with a super soft sensation, and the Cleansing Cream Oil that is a hybrid cross between an oil cleanser and a cream, with a comfortable, non-greasy texture. And if you're the kind that often has to cleanse on the go, the brand's Eye & Lip Makeup Remover towelettes are ace at removing even stubborn mascara and lippie and are perhaps the most luxurious ones you'll find on the market.
