Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, £15.50

Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish is regularly dubbed the holy grail of double cleansing. The muslin cloths that come with the cleanser are hailed for their exfoliating powers - leaving skin brighter and healthier-looking. 

"Liz Earle is amazing. I spent about six months trying loads of products and then found Cleanse and Polish - within a couple of weeks my skin was considerably clearer and within a month it was back to normal. I now use the whole range religiously and will never use another!"


Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser, £4.99

For something easier on the purse but just as effective, the Superdrug Vitamin E range is the place to look. The price of the cleanser makes it a great option for anyone just starting out on a skincare routine. 

"I use the Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser and face oil. Both are lovely, excellent value for money and comparable to higher-end products. They have made a big difference to my skin." 


Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, £38

For a cleanser as luxurious as it is effective, there's only one option for Mumsnetters: Emma Hardie's cleansing balm. Who knew washing your face could be this enjoyable?

"I have the giant Emma Hardie cleanser and I love it. I bought it mid-December and still have about half a tub left! I also use it as my night moisturiser/serum if my skin is dry or needs to be nourished."


The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, £14

The Body Shop might have fallen off your beauty radar, but its camomile cleansing balm receives rave reviews on Mumsnet. The creamy formula removes all traces of make-up without the need to scrub your face - perfect for sensitive skin.  

"I'm a big fan of the camomile butter from Body Shop. I've been using it for at least a year, and have no plans to change. It suits my dehydrated normal/dry but slightly sensitive skin really well and washes off nicely. It seems really calming, and my skin feels soft and very clean after use." 


Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk, £8

Soap and Glory is better-known for its wittily named make-up range, but the cleanser is equally worth a whirl.

"I  love Soap & Glory's Peaches and Clean cleanser - it was recommended to me by a colleague and it's the best cleanser I've tried."
