If you suffer from dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin, especially at this time of year, don’t skip the cleansing step of your routine. Choosing a cream cleanser, instead of a foam or gel, will not only remove make-up and impurities but will also hydrate, soothe and comfort your skin, helping it to feel healthier even in the depths of winter. Here are just a few of our favourites…
Medik8 Cream Cleanse – shop
The beauty of this cleanser is that it’s free from harsh surfactants and irritating cleansing agents. Instead, it combines moisturising plant-derived extracts and oils to nourish and hydrate parched skin. It’s formulated with naturally sourced Cocoa Seed Butter and Glycerin to prevent post-cleansing tightness, while gentle AHA Mandelic Acid sweeps away dead cells to reveal a brighter, more luminous skin tone.
iS Clinical Cream Cleanser – shop
Dry and sensitive skin can be easily irritated, especially by harsh cleansers, but this product is so gentle that it can even be used without a drop of water. Its innovative formula strengthens the skin’s protective barrier to prevent further irritation, while effortlessly removing make-up and impurities to leave the skin feeling beautifully soft and moisturised.
Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Cream Cleanser – shop
Some cleansers can cause the skin to feel tight after use, but this one is extremely rich and gentle and leaves the skin feeling clean and supple. Thanks to a blend of softening and soothing ingredients, such as Chamomile Flower Extract, it effectively removes make-up and impurities without stripping the skin or weakening the lipid barrier.
SENSAI Silky Purifying Cleansing Cream – shop
Cleansing doesn’t have to be basic and boring part of your skincare routine. With a product like this from SENSAI, it can be indulgent and luxurious. This cleanser lifts away dirt, impurities and light make-up to leave the skin feeling balanced and deeply cleansed, plus it can be used in the morning and evening so your skin remains calm and comfortable around the clock.
PCA Skin Creamy Cleanser – shop
This nourishing product uses natural plant oils, such as Sunflower Seed Oil, to effectively wash away dirt, debris and daily make-up while strengthening a weak lipid layer, to leave the skin looking more radiant. Plus, there is added Aloe Vera Leaf Juice which hydrates and softens the skin.
