Holy Grail: Cleansers

As someone who is now hyper-vigilant about cleansing and skincare, I am pretty horrified that my routine used to consist of a makeup wipe.  Nowadays, I like to take off my makeup and wash my face as soon as I get home from work.  Besides being a really nice way to transition from the workday into a relaxing evening, it also ensures that any city grime and pollution on my skin doesn’t have time to sink in.  If you live in an urban environment, it is especially important to take good care of your skin.  I’ve lived in big cities in my entire life, Boston, New York, Tel Aviv, and my skin always suffered when I didn’t keep it clean.  My makeup didn’t look as good, and I always had to wear more to cover up my skin.  So today I’ve rounded up my favorite, most relaxing, loveliest face cleansers.  Make it a daily ritual; your skin will thank you!

31dhopst9al-_sy355_The travel option: Su:m 37 Miracle Rose Cleanser Stick is a permanent fixture in my carryon when I travel.  It’s made with my favorite skincare ingredient, rose, and easily takes off my makeup and gets me clean and glowing without drying out my skin.  Best part: stick packaging makes it TSA-friendly and it won’t leak or spill in your bag.EV0028_4600_EVE_LOMThe worthwhile splurge: Eve Lom Cleanser is one of the best products I’ve ever used, across the board.  You can read my review of it from last week here.

51fx5twvlql-_sy355_The drugstore option: Cetaphil Dermacontrol Foam Wash is the brand’s classic cleanser, but formulated for oily and acne-prone skin.  If you’re on a budget, you can’t go wrong with Cetaphil.

s1246537-main-lheroThe one that makes you glow: Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam is always my last step in the shower.  This cleanser makes my skin incredibly soft and radiant, and even though it’s a bit pricey (I actually got mine on sale), you only need the smallest drop, so one bottle will last you a very long time.

Do you have a cleanser that you think should be on this list?  Comment below!  Love, Me
