1, Tesco Pro Formula Radiance Melting Gel Cleanser is a light, gel based cleanser that has a very, very similar texture to Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel only marginally cheaper. If you have yet to experience a gel cleanser for yourself I will be brutally honest in saying the consistency of said product can take a little getting used to. It can feel a little like smearing jelly on you face - thick and a little sticky. I am not a skin care expert (far from it) but can say that as someone with fairly sensitive skin on occasion that gel cleansers seem to be the most gentle approach for me, the balm like texture comforts and cools my skin and the vast majority can also be used to gently remove eye make-up. The gel base quickly emulsifies when it comes into contact with water making removal easy all of which is true for Tesco Pro Formula Radiance Melting Gel Cleanser. It makes easy removal of even the heaviest of make-up, feels great on the skin and does leave my complexion soft to the touch with a slight glow. You really do need to track this down next time you are in store. You can find it here for £5 - link.
2, Una Brennan Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil is perhaps the best known Una Brennan product and for good reason too. As a fairly budget friendly facial oil this is pretty wonderful - it feels great on the skin, leaves the skin feeling soft and looking radiant not to mention it smells beyond wonderful (like real oranges) and is quick and easy to use. My only criticism would be that the oil is really thick and heavy so you do have to ensure you have removed every little scrap to avoid the skin breaking out. I like to use two wet flannels when removing this oil so it is not for those in a hurry that is for sure. The plus side of this is that it does really encourage you to take care of your skin and will stop you being lazy...every silver cloud. My other problem is that so much oil gets wasted due to there not being a pump - you pour this out onto your hands, rub on dry skin and remove using warm water and a flannel. Yes it does leave my skin feeling and looking great but the lack of convenience can be off putting but this is the hands down the best budget cleansing oil I have used. Out of all my recommendations this is the one I would give the nod to for drier skin types (although it does suit all) as it is truly nourishing and won't strip the skin in the slightest. Find it at Boots for £10.99 - link.
3, I know, I know another cleansing gel but on the plus side at least the high street is catching up with the larger brands and choice is never a bad thing. Superdrug B.Clean Melting Gel Cleanser is as good as any other gel cleanser I have tried and in some cases better. It makes light work of make-up removal even heavy make-up is easily removed which is great if lazy or tired. Although B.Clean don't suggest using it on the eye area I have tried it there and can vouch that it easily and quickly removes even waterproof mascara without stinging the eyes. The Superdrug B.Clean Melting Gel Cleanser is a dream to use it leaves the skin soft, isn't stripping and moisturising enough for dry skin, smells great and does not break out nor irritate my skin nor does it leave an icky film on the skin. I do wish that both the bottle and site give a little more detail of what ingredients are used but other than that no complaints! You can find it here via Superdrug for a mere £3.47 (currently on offer) - link.
