We’ve talked about face cleansers, toners, and makeup removers in previous posts. Today I’m going to talk about gel cleansers. You might be asking, “what is the difference?” There are a variety of cleansers out there, but what you decide to use should be based on your specific skin type. It is definitely overwhelming with all the products and ads, but I’m here to help!
A gel cleanser is great for people with oily, combination skin, or looking to clear clogged pores. Cleansing gels have a much lighter consistency than your average cream based cleansers. These are gel formulas that clean your face, remove waterproof makeup, and leave you skin feeling like silky smooth without making it feel stripped. Just keep in mind what formulations your skin reacts best to.
This is my favorite way to wash my face in the evening. It’s fast, easy and cleans away even the heaviest makeup. In this post I’m going to share my favorite gel cleansers.
This is the product that I use almost every single night. The gel turns into an oil that melts away your makeup. It can take off five coats of blackest black mascara that you applied earlier in the morning. I first put this on my face without adding water, massage into the skin, including the eye area, and then add water. Rinse off with warm water, I use the Eve Lom Muslim Cloths which I have listed in this post. On days where I’m wearing heavier makeup I’ll follow up with the Clarins Exfoliating Cleanser, avoiding my eye area, and rinse off again with warm water using the muslim cloths. This will leave you skin feeling so soft and clean and ready for your night time regimen.
This product is made for all skin types including sensitive skin. It is a thick balm which will deep clean, exfoliate, and soothe your skin removing even waterproof makeup. This is a bit pricey but you only need to use a very small amount, so the 6.8 oz jar could last for quite some time. Apply a little bit of the product to your face with dry fingertips. I use about a dime size, using too much will make it gunky. Massage into the entire face, including the eye area. Saturate the Muslim Cloth with warm water and wipe it across your face and eye area to remove all traces of cleanser and makeup. Rinse the cloth with cool water and press into the face to close your pores. The cloths can be machine or hand washed and will last forever. Your skin will feel like silk and your evening products will absorb much better into your skin.
This oil is a two-in-one cleanser that will remove makeup, even waterproof makeup, leaving skin super soft. Like the other products mentioned here, do not add water before you put onto your skin. So using dry hands and on a dry face massage the oil in, using only one pump to two pumps. Again, this is for your face and eyes. It will turn milky and will melt away even the heaviest of makeups. Rinse off with warm water. Super easy with great for your skin ingredients.
