When it comes to cleansing, I have recently realised that I have a slightly more in-depth approach than many. In the evenings, I tend to use an oil-based cleaner around my eyes to eradicate mascara and liner, then I use a foaming option on my face to get rid of foundation and concealer. Then I finish everything off with a swipe of micellar water and then, if I’m feeling fancy, some toner. It’s not the quickest option available (hello baby wipes) but it means my sensitive skin stays under control, and I don’t wake up sporting a face-full of yesterday’s makeup.
Recently though, I was introduced to the SkinFix brand – a company all about creating seriously impressive skincare at affordable prices. One of the first of their lineup I tried was the Foaming Oil Cleanser. A mix of two of my favourite types of cleanser – it’s not like anything else in the cabinet! The formula has a light cream, milky consistency, but it foams when it comes into contact with water. It has a wonderfully fresh, spa-like cucumber scent which is very cooling and soothing, and it gets rid of makeup absolutely incredibly! The little blue bottle has freed some some valuable bathroom real estate, keeps my skin super clear, and it gets rid of makeup without feeling drying. In a word, it’s genius!
