Recommend me a really good all round soap free cleanser
Isn't a face wash after the balm too drying? I use TBS camomile Balm which is similar but wouldn't use anything after it apart from a tepid flannel. I've always thought if you over cleanse the skin produces more oil to compensate?
I have oily skin and used to use a foaming cleanser. Switched to an oil cleanser and never looked back! Feels a bit weird putting oil on a dry face but honestly, give it a try. I used DHC Cleansing Oil but the Body Shop Camomile Oil is supposed to be good too.
Liz Earle - cleanse and polish. I have very oily skin - always have. I have tried Clinique and various over the years. Liz Earle is the only one that makes my skin feel clean but not tight and red afterwards.
Honestly the best facial wash I’ve ever used is the £1.29 one from Aldi. It’s soap and fragrance free and doesn’t dry my oily skin at all. I don’t need to use moisturiser after every day for example. I’ve got spot prone skin and it’s the nicest it’s ever been since using this wash. Worth a try for £1.29
You definitely need dermalogica ultracalming cleanser! Not special cleansing gel! The ultracalming is my hero product and it can be washed off or removed with a warm flannel or cotton pads, so versatile!
I’ve been using this for years. Leaves skin lovely & soft & clean feeling, it lasts ages too as it lathers up well. I have oily skin & it cleans well without over drying. I always end up buying something else for a change but I always go back to this. It’s Avene soapless gel cleanser, Boots have it on 3 for 2 at the moment ..... http://www.boots.com/avene-cleanance-cleansing-gel-200ml-10155054
