One-Step Facial Cleanser

(12 Posts)

Right I am very lazy at night and usually use those wipes to remove make-up but apparently they are not very good (various sources on internet so it must be true). I am investigating
This product by Clarins

but would like to know if anyone has used it or something similar. I am never going to cleanse AND tone I need something quick and easy.

Well you don't really need to tone, so you can skip that step with most cleansers.

I've enevr tried Clarins before but I think that looks good.
At the mo I'm using Olay Gentle Cleanser (in the blue and white tube), it takes off all of my makeup. But sometimes it can make me skin feel a little dry.

Do you prefer a wash of cleanser ?

i've tried it. didn't like. it may well be "one step" but the amount of wiping off with endless cotton wool pads - and then still felt greasy/yukky to me - negated the whole supposed of ease of use.

i am the laziest person in the whole world, nay the universe, and trust me i have tried every single lazy thing there is.

every single time without doubt i go back to Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. couple of pumps, rub into face (including my waterproof mascara - any cleansing ritual which does not involve eye make up does not cut it withthis lazy mare), wipe off with muslin/flannel in warm water. et voila smile

Only in the morning in the shower, in the evening I need something I can do in bed, at the last minute.

I will investigate Olay.

I don't like cream cleansers, they make my skin feel cloggy.

I've used the one step cleanser from Clarins for combination skin, and thought it was good - I tend to buy it to take away with me (great for camping!!). I've tried the one that yoou've linked to, and found it a bit oily, but, like I said, I have combination skin. You could always see if they have any testers? I always try before I buy!!

love liz earle. love everything about the range, even the clever cap on the toner bottle which you don't have to remove in order to get the toner out.
am very lazy about skin care, but this range is lazy person friendly.
as an added bonus, skin looks way better than has done for ages. (used to use clarins)

use eve lom - cleanse, tone if you see water as toner as I do, it even exfoliates with the cloth and I find it so rich, it even moisturizes by very dry skin..

Liz Earle too! I find you need very little - pea sized amount and it does clean off eye make up and doesn't irritate your eyes.
And it makes my skin look good.

ok this liz earle stuff - does it have to be a wet cloth (this involves being out of bed) or can it just be cotton wool?

libra, it works best with the wet cloth (comes with a muslin, i have loads now), or can use flannel or anything really. But the warm wet cloth helps remove everything (so very little effort required wink ) and it also acts as an exfoliator. Honestly, i am sooooo lazy but this is the one if you want to have good skin but can't be arsed to do anything to get there.

i do mine at teeth cleaning - rub it in, brush teeth, wipe off. Couldn't be easier.

oh also should add, i have combo skin and that one you linked to was soooo greasy on my skin yet still managed to leave it dry. no probs ever with the Liz Earle stuff...... smile
