Can you help me find a cleanser?

I am looking for a new cleanser to use at night to remove make up. For a while I hot cloth cleansed my skin with an oil based cleanser but it gave me a very itchy dermatitis-like rash all around both eyes. Currently I am using Garnier oil-infused micellar water but I don't feel like it's getting all my make up off or leaving my skin fully clean. Could anyone recommend anything effective? My skin is oily/sensitive, not really prone to spots except the occasional hormonal one. Is there an alternative to HCC which is as effective? My skin did feel really cleansed when I was doing it. Thanks!

Ren stuff is gentle and calming - this might suit you

I love Dermologica Pre-Cleanse- removes every trace of make up. I do follow up with a face wash as well.

I'm a big fan of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser!

Ooh, these all sound good, thank you! Think I might try the Kiehl's first...

Did your old cleanser have mineral oil in? The Emma Hardie cleansing balm doesn't and is brilliant.

I love Elemis Pro Collagen cleansing balm.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter is often recommended on here and is brilliant, and fully justifies its five star ratings.

I second the EH and TBS camomile as already mentioned. Also, Superdrug Naturally Radiant hcc is fab and a bargain! Clinique TTDO balm is lovely also.

Yes to the Superdrug Naturally Radiant as well.

Faith in Nature facial wash. It's more like a lotion you put on then wash off. I have combination skin and it sorts it all out. Followed by FIN moisturiser.

Another vote for the super drug hcc. I too have oily, sensitive skin and was recommended it on here. It's really cheap, and doesn't irritate my skin.

Ps it's on offer at the moment online, and you get free delivery if you have their loyalty card.

Body shop camomile cleansing oil (or the camomile balm if you have drier skin) is amazing. Rub it on and hot cloth it off.

Clinique TTDO balm and a muslin.
