With so many cleansing options available to us these days, it can certainly get confusing figuring out which one is right for you and your routine.  

So we’ve made the decision easy for you – are you ready to meet your perfect cleansing match? 

 

For heavy makeup and daily SPF wearers 

Do you ever find yourself scrubbing to remove that last ounce of stubborn mascara, or feeling like you just can’t shake that lingering SPF residue from a long day outdoors? Introducing Melting Moment Cleansing Balm. This is the one for you. Suitable for all skin types and concerns, this delicious and nourishing balm-to-oil cleanser effectively melts away makeup and SPF, unblocks pores and leaves skin glowing and fresh.  Loaded with skin-loving ingredients like Native Wild Orange Leaf Extract, Grapeseed Oil, Australian Sandalwood Seed Oil, and Bisabolol, this balm cleanser leaves skin nourished, feeling soft and looking radiant – never stripped, tight or dry. 

For a normal to dry, or sensitive skin 

If your skin tends to feel parched, dry, or tight, if it flakes, or you experience redness and sensitivity throughout the day, then Balancing Cleanser is the perfect fit for you. A creamy multi-tasking cleanser made with luxurious Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, this gentle non-stripping formula respects the skin's natural pH balance, preparing skin for optimal ingredient absorption. Gently remove face makeup, calm, and soothe stressed or irritated skin. 

For a normal to oily, or combination skin 

If you love a refreshing gel formula, spend time working out, or just generally experience that mid-day oily shine no matter what you’re doing – try our Triple Action Cleanser. Effectively cleanse skin and remove all traces of the day, while maintaining the delicate balance of the skin's pH with this soothing and hydrating, non-foaming gel. Thyme extract fights the spread of oil and bacteria, working to reduce the length and severity of breakouts, whilst the natural anti-inflammatory properties of Aloe Vera and Cucumber work to calm stressed skin. 

For a problematic, blemish-prone skin 

It can often feel like a never-ending battle to keep control of blemishes and breakouts; you manage to tackle one just as another starts to make itself comfortable. Whether your breakouts are predominantly on your face, or they crop up elsewhere on the body like your back or chest, Clear Skin Daily Face & Body Wash is the perfect partner in the fight against a problematic skin. This non-stripping face and body gel formula with 2% Salicylic Acid, is specially formulated to target breakouts while reducing the appearance of inflammation and blemishes. Fortified with Thyme, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus to fight bacteria on the skin, and Vitamin B3 to help control excess oil, this non-foaming cleanser will calm, soothe, and keep breakouts at bay.

And should I double cleanse? 

Cleansing is the cornerstone to a great skincare routine, so now we’ve got your cleanser formula down, want to hear our best advice to making the most of your daily cleanse? Double it.  

Allow us to introduce the gold standard in cleansing, the double cleanse. It’s not necessarily a must for everybody, but if you wear makeup daily, are using a daily SPF (and hopefully topping it up regularly when outside) or spend a lot of time out and about battling daily elements such as pollution, then double cleansing is absolutely for you. Sometimes one cleanse just doesn’t cut it. 

By leaving behind traces of makeup and stubborn SPF before bed, we’re potentially disrupting our delicate pH balance, compromising our protective barrier, and leaving our skin open to external aggressors which can lead to adverse effects like irritation and premature ageing.  

We recommend treating your first cleanse like a removal of all the daily nasties, melting away lingering product and preparing your skin for a more bespoke second cleanse with a formula designed for your particular skin type or concern. 

For the most effective first cleanse, look for an oil or balm formula. Our Melting Moment Cleansing Balm is the perfect companion for all skin types, including an oily or sensitive skin. This luxurious solid balm immediately transforms into a lightweight but powerful oil as you massage over the skin, melting away even long-wearing makeup, SPF, dirt, and pollution. This hard-working cleanser can be added to any routine, and works in harmony with our entire cleansing range, no matter your skin type or concern. 

Simply follow your first cleanse with your chosen formula for your skin type above in a targeted second cleanse, working to maintain your skin’s delicate pH balance and preparing your skin for optimal absorption of the rest of your routine.
