Just as you’d spring clean your house with the new season, there’s every reason to spring clean your skincare routine and try a new cleanser.
Heavier creamy cleansers which work well in winter can be too heavy in warmer weather.
These cleansers are refreshing, soothing and will have skin prepped and clean for the new season. Right now is the perfect time to review your daily routine.
Say goodbye to dry, flaky winter skin, with these cleansers that Bondi Beauty are currently loving.
BEST FOR: Makeup wipe users looking to cut back on their environmental impact, all skin types.
Self-described as the “modern makeup remover,” Face Halo solves the dilemma of being environmentally and waste conscious, but still needing something to remove make up with.
Gone are the days of disposable wipes or cotton buds – Face Halo’s unique extra-fine fibres can remove makeup by just adding water to the sponge-like pad.
It sounds sceptical – no other cleansers or washes needed, just water? But, after trialling and testing the product firsthand, it actually works.
The Face Halo pad is soft on the skin, and there’s no need to harshly rub or scrub. Simply swiping the cloth over the skin removes almost all traces of makeup. This is due to the ultra-fine fibres in the sponge that have the ability to deeply reach into the pores.
This also provides a gentle cleanse that leaves the skin feeling fresh, clean and revigorated.
After using, the Face Halo cloth can be reused up to 200 times by throwing it in the washing machine. It’s the perfect environmentally friendly alternative to makeup wipes.
BEST FOR: DRY SKIN
Like the other Skinistut products that are designed for use after laser treatments, this gentle gel cleanser feels soft, nourishing and light on the skin.
With a deep, refreshing smell of Aloe Vera, skin feels clean and hydrated after applying day and night. Other powerful inclusions include Vitamin E, Goji berries and Green Tea extract, all formulated to strengthen and soothe the complexion.
While this cleanser is designed with all skin types in mind, it’s especially beneficial for dry skin.
Containing cucumber oil, which is a type of fatty acid, this helps to retain and restore moisture in the skin. It’s a highly nourishing cleanser, gentle enough that it can also be used for sensitive and irritated skin.
BEST FOR: All skin types, including sensitive or reactive skin
Featuring marine collagen as the main ingredient, this liquid cleanser from Vida Glow rejuvenates and renews skin, leaving it feeling fresh, young and healthy.
Helping to replenish collagen supply, this cleanser is supporting your skin in the future – by boosting collagen production, it’s said to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as one ages.
Removing makeup, dead skin cells and excess oil, this cleanser helps to detoxify and rinse the pores and skin.
Despite the use of marine collagen and red algae, it doesn’t smell overly fishy. Instead, the scent is fresh and clean, with a touch of Aloe Vera, Green Tea and Sandalwood to create a pleasant scent that lingers after rinsing off.
These gentle ingredients also help to remove redness and any irritations, making it perfect for sensitive skin.
Sold in a 95ml bottle not only makes it perfect for travelling, but it is also generally a larger size than other cleansers.
With only one pea-sized pump needed per application, this product lasts a long time, becoming a feature in your everyday skin care routine.
BEST FOR: ALL SKIN TYPES
Packaged in a handy travel size, this deep cleansing gel by L’Action Paris is enriched with cucumber extract and soothing Aloe Vera. With a pleasant and refreshing smell, the gel works to remove dead skin cells, impurities and light makeup from the face.
It’s gentle enough that it doesn’t over strip the face from its natural oils, yet it still works to cleanse and purify the skin.
Additionally acting as an exfoliator, the cleanser does not contain any harsh micro beads or toxins, making it friendly for the skin.
Designed to be used once a week, this cleanser is the perfect excuse to have a treat-yourself spa day. Simply massage the gel onto a dry face, then rinse with water.
This product is a part of L’Action one-minute solutions, which are made to use on-the-go, quick remedies for touch ups anywhere and everywhere.
BEST FOR: ALL SKIN TYPES
Created by Australian model Jessica Hart, this cleanser is infused with coconut oil and rose oil, hydrating the skin. With a milky based texture, it helps to begin to remove makeup and impurities.
It also lightly illuminates the complexion, thanks to the inclusion of carrot seed oil and crushed pearl.
Additionally, it uses a fragrance-free formula, making it suitable for sensitive skin types. It’s also subtle enough to use on eyes without causing irritation.
BEST FOR: ALL SKIN TYPES
While not necessarily a cleanser, this cloth removes excess makeup or dirt not picked up by the cleansing product.
Soaked in warm water, apply the cloth to the skin before cleansing for a few minutes, softening the skin and getting it ready for a proper cleanse. The cloth is then used again once cleansing is finished, to remove the cleanser from the skin.
Additionally, it’s a great way to ensure that the skin has been properly cleansed, with all products and unwanted oils or makeups removed.
If any product or residue comes off onto the cleansing cloth, take it as a sign to double cleanse the skin again.
The cloth itself is incredibly soft, with an almost rubber like texture, but it doesn’t feel harsh or dragging on the skin.
Once it’s dry, the cloth hardens until it’s resoaked in water, where it becomes pliable and ready to use again.
