nspa Melting Cleaning Gel £6 for 125ml *
This is the first product I’ve tried from nspa & let me tell you it did not disappoint, in fact its fast becoming one of my favourite cleansers. I am a big fan of gel cleansers and I love how smooth, hydrated and clean they leave my skin. This one from nspa is available in ASDA so it is very affordable and readily available. Its packed full of skincare benefits and its suitable for all skin types.
It is a two phase cleanser which means it starts off as a gel which you apply to dry skin and massage in to breakdown your makeup / dirt and pollutants from the day. You will need such a small amount of this as once you begin massaging it in it turns in to an oil and a little goes a very long way. Once you have massaged it in, I like to do this for about a minute or two, you then rinse it off with warm water & I like to use a face cloth. The gel turns in to a cleansing milk when you apply the water and you will find this leaves your skin very soft, not stripped or tight but smooth and nourished. It has:-
- Grapeseed Oil to breakdown makeup & dirt
- Vitamin E which is a good antioxidant which that repairs and protects your skin
- Avocado, Apricot and Neroli Oils – Which nourish and rejuvenate your skin
- Ginseng which brightens your complexion and helps fight the signs of ageing
I really like this cleanser and can’t believe how fresh and glowing my skin has been since I started using it. It is also very hydrating and my skin feels very plump and smooth after using it. If you have an ASDA near you, go & buy yourself a tube! You will thank me for it, I promise you that!
Nip & Fab Deep Cleansing Fix £7.95 for 300ml
Both my mum & I have been using this cleanser and calling each other the next day to declare how much we both love it! This is a big old pot of product & it will last you for months! I do have to admit its not the most hygienic way to package a face cleanser as you have to scoop the product out but because I love it so much I am willing to over look that!
This product is a multi use 6 in 1 product and can be used in the following ways,
- Removes make up
- Deeply cleanses
- Use as a 10 minute mini mask
- Apply directly to blemishes for a treatment
- Leave on overnight for a more hydrating mask
- Exfoliating when used with a face cloth
I have used it in 5 out of the 6 ways, I tend not to suffer from blemishes so I’ve had no reason to test that out but all the other ways to use this Deep Cleansing Fix have worked a treat. I would say that I prefer to leave it on as more of a face mask for about 10 – 20 minutes than sleeping in it overnight. Just because I love my night time skincare routine & that works well for me so I enjoy this more as a relaxing mask.
This is quite a thick cream but it is easy to massage in to the skin as a cleanser or smooth over the skin as a mask. It contains Sweet almond oil which nourishes and smoothes whilst the Tea tree oil cleanses pores. So your skin will feel clean and look bright. I just love it and the fact that its a multi use product is even better. For the price this is a cleanser you should have in your arsenal for those days when you’re skin feels decongested, dull or you need some thing that packs a punch to help those blemishes heal quicker. Did I mention how huge this tub is?! 300ml is bigger than most body products so this tub will be with you for a very long time. Which is good news for the bank balance.
ESPA Optimal Skin ProCleanser £30.00 for 100ml
This is the latest release from luxury brand ESPA and is also a multi use cleanser. This is a Tri-Phase Cleanser which means it is a gel cleaner, exfoliator and a mask all in one. This is aimed at all ages and all skin types so if you love luxurious skincare then this is the product for you. I have raved about the ESPA Optimal ProSerum many times on this blog and this is like the sister product.
This is a very gentle cleanser and is also packed full of skincare benefits,
- Moringa seed extract cleanses and removes make-up
- Jojoba spheres gently exfoliate and melt to leave your skin clear, nourished and smooth
- Pumpkin enzymes gently dissolve dull cells, revealing a beautiful, radiant, healthy glow
It comes out as a white gel with tiny exfoliating spheres which when massaged into your skin melt away, they are so gentle and not in the least bit abrasive. I smooth this on to dry skin & leave it for at least 10 minutes then rinse with warm water and a face cloth. This leaves my skin incredibly soft and so hydrated, its feels like it has a moisturiser in there too. It is very luxurious and my skin always looks bright and healthy the next day. I use this as my second cleanse and not to remove my makeup as it is quite a high end cleanser and I prefer to use it as a treat. I leave it on my skin for a about 10 minutes to let the ingredients work their magic. It always feels like such a waste to wash it off straight away.
If you do like to use high end skincare, then you will adore using this new Optimal ProCleanser from ESPA and your skin will love you for it. I also know that a lot of people are on a budget & prefer to spend a more affordable amount on a cleanser & either of the other two I have mentioned in this post will give you nourished, cleansed and fresh looking skin. So you can take your pick, they’re all great at cleansing and I have enjoyed using them all.
Let me know what your current favourite cleansers are & if you have tried any of the three mentioned in todays post.
