The new cleansing products I’ve added to my bathroom shelf

The new cleansing products I’ve added to my bathroom shelf

Cleansing products are a very subjective topic. What one person adores, the other will find useless. But these three are (virtually) guaranteed hits if you’re willing to try them…


So much skincare passes my desk as a beauty writer that I rarely swap out something and bench one of my old reliables. But this winter, that changed. I swapped my beloved foaming cleanser for a cream one (foam dries the skin like crazy!) and I threw out all my facecloths in exchange for a pink mitt. Here are three cleansing products I’m into right now.

THE HYDRATOR

cleansing products

Cerave Hydrating Cleanser

€10 from boots.ie

This has been my skin’s saviour all winter, when foaming cleansers were drying the life out of my skin. This creamy dream is for normal to dry, sensitive skin. It cleanses, hydrates and protects the skin’s natural barrier (thanks to Cerave’s magically ceramide ingredients). It removes make-up really well, but also increases hydration.

THE SMART WATER

cleansing products

Shiseido WASO Beauty Smart Water

€34 from shiseido.co

What is Beauty Smart Water, you ask? I asked too. And the answer? It’s like really fancy micellar water. Enhanced with Japanese fermented complexes, the smooth-textured water polishes skin, removing dirt, excess sebum, dead skin cells and light makeup while its moisturising ingredients deliver moisture to the skin.

THE PINK MITT

cleansing products

Cleanse Off Mitt Limited Edition Pink

€6.50 pharmacies nationwide and at www.cleanseoffmitt.com

Are we all converted to Cleanse Off Mitts by now? Drop your wipes, drop your ‘normal’ face cloths and move over to the pink side. It can be washed with antibacterial soap, rinsed with water and hung to dry, it’s also machine washable, and it’ll last a good three months with daily use before you’ll need to replace it. Longer if you’re me.
