I get a lot of questions from readers asking me what cleansers would work best for their skin type so I thought I would post a few of my favorites that will work for one or more skin types so there are multiple options to choose from. I tried to keep everything on the affordable side, though some are more pricey. I hope you enjoy!

23148-300

Original Konjac Sponge; $9

ALL SKIN TYPES, EVEN SENSITIVE

This is a great one for all skin types! It’s super gentle, mildly exfoliating and non-irritating even for those with sensitive skin. You can even get these with different clays in them, if you like, depending on your skin type. Check those out here. This is a great cleansing tool + cleanser in one if you like to keep your routine simple, yet effective. Check out my review on this original sponge here!

Suti CLEANSE Organic Balm; £26.00

ALL SKIN TYPES, ESPECIALLY DRY, SENSITIVE, ACNE PRONE & ROSACEA TYPES

This is seriously one of my favorites! I think this could also work for any skin type as well. It’s a bit more on the expensive side of things, but it works incredibly well and is worth the price to me. If you have oily or combination to oily skin, you’ll want to use this with the muslin cloth to get more exfoliation and cleansing action, but if you’re more on the dry or sensitive side of things, you can simply massage this into your skin and rinse with warm water then pat dry. Check out my full review here.

Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser; 24.50

ALL SKIN TYPES EXCEPT DRY & HYPER-SENSITIVE TYPES

ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR ACNE PRONE & OILY SKIN TYPES!

Another new favorite, this one is great for all skin types, though I don’t recommend it to anyone who has a sensitivity to essential oils or to someone with dry skin. This is really cleansing and creamy, but it’s not super nourishing so if you need that extra moisture, it’s better to go with the Suti CLEANSE, the AB Cleansing Oil or LN Vitalising Cleanser (see below). This one works especially well for those with combination to oily or oily skin and is really effective for those with clogged pores or acne. This gentle cleanse + exfoliate combo is great for clearing the skin. Check out my full review on this here. 

100ml

Living Nature Vitalising Cleanser; $35

ALL SKIN TYPES, EXCEPT SUPER OILY TYPES.

ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR DRY, SENSITIVE SKIN TYPES!

This is a really nourishing cleanser! It’s super gentle so it would be great for those with dry skin, sensitive skin or combination skin in the winter. I also find it’s nice to use when my combo to oily skin is looking particularly red or irritated because it helps to calm things down a lot. The scent in this is super subtle and there’s no sulfate or foaming; it actually just feels like a light, easily absorbed lotion only you rinse after. It leaves the skin feeling really soft and hydrated. See my full review here.

Antonia Burrell Natural Glow Cleansing Oil; $102

ALL SKIN TYPES

If you’ve been following for awhile, you may know about my love for cleansing oils. If not, well, I love them! They are great for all skin types most of the time and they work so well at balancing the skin out, whether your problem is dryness, oiliness, clogged pores or redness. I love cleansing oils for when my skin is just completely out of whack and off balance. It’s a great way to balance everything out and calm any irritations. Plus, cleansing oils, a lot of the time, are easily absorbed into the skin and help to cleanse the skin without stripping anything from it. Also, they work well as an all-in-one type makeup remover and cleanser. Just be sure to do it 2x! See my full review for this cleansing oil here.

AMPM Wakeup Skin Smooth Washing Powder

NARUKO AMPM Wakeup Skin Smoothing Washing Powder; $14

OILY TO COMBINATION SKIN, ESPECIALLY THOSE WITH ACNE PRONE SKIN

NOT FOR DRY OR SENSITIVE TYPES

I love to use washing powders during hot, humid months when my skin is super oily and has a tendency to get congested. This is a great way to gently exfoliate the skin without being harsh while getting a good cleanse in. Plus, this one is only mildly foaming so it’s not as harsh as the OTC drugstore acne cleansers that can do more harm than good with their crap ingredients. This one includes rice powder and other ingredients to gently cleanse, smooth, and brighten the skin. See my full review on this here.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser; $15

ALL SKIN TYPES

ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

GREAT FOR MAKEUP REMOVAL

This is an old favorite! It’s really great for any skin type, but it works especially well for those with sensitive skin or if you like to use a separate cleanser for makeup removal, this is a nice one. It smells really super fresh (actually true lol) – just like cucumbers. It’s very mild and more milky than foamy so it’s non-stripping to the skin. This is a really nice gel type textured cleanser and is great if you’re someone who doesn’t want to strip the skin of it’s natural oils, but also hates the oily feel of cleansing oils or balms. This one is a nice middle ground that will leave your skin cleansed, but not tight or dry. See my full review on this here.

June Beauty Favorites!

I can’t believe July is already here!

June went by so incredibly fast and I have been so busy that I haven’t even had time to blink and notice that we are already knee deep in Summer weather!

I apologize for the delay on this; I wanted to get some of these reviews out before I posted my favorites so you all would be able to go and have a look if it any pique your interest so without further delay, here’s my favorites for June!

CARGO HydraBronze Powder

This bronzer has been amazing to use! I absolutely love it for contouring my cheek bones and it works great for a light bronze that doesn’t look too dark. I also love that they’ve included hyaluronic acid in the formula because it’s never drying to my skin; it just looks super soft and amazing!

Antonia Burrell Natural Glow Cleansing Oil

I’ve truly loved this Natural Glow Cleansing Oil by Antonia Burrell because it feels amazing, smells great and is really hydrating. It was perfect to alternate using this with the Alpha-H Triple Action Cleanser (read the full Alpha-H Reviews – here! ) because some days, my skin needed a more hydrating cleanser and this was just the thing! It features a host of awesome ingredients and feels great to use in a deep cleansing facial massage without being drying. Definitely worth a try for any skin type!

I Profumi di Firenze in Pleniluno Fragrance

I have been wearing this scent all month long! It smells amazing and is nice and light; perfect for the summer time! I am not a fan of fruity scents, but this has the perfect balance of fruitiness and musk so it just WORKS! It smells completely intoxicating and I will definitely buy the full size when I run out the of the small sample.

Alpha-H Gentle Balancing Moisturizer with 10% Glycolic Acid

This stuff is seriously one of my new holy grail products! It has been amazing at clearing up any breakouts that I have and brightening up my skin so that it doesn’t look dull and lifeless. It is a bit intense to use and may not be suitable for very sensitive types, but it is amazing for acne prone skin types and it may also be awesome for those experiencing dullness, hyper-pigmentation or dryness frequently. It has a slight tingling sensation due to the high content of glycolic acid so it should be used once every other night or even only a few times a week to get the effects, but it really does the trick!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer in Adansonia

This tinted moisturizer has a lot more coverage than your average tinted moisturizer and I really like the soft finish! It blends nicely and looks natural and fits easily into my makeup bag with it’s thin design! I’ve been using it on regular work days when I want a bit more than a simple powder!

Suti Skincare’s Organic Purity Moisturising Balm

This balm has been amazing at calming my skin when it freaks out for no reason! I’ve loved using it, especially at to help heal breakouts, calm redness and hydrate any dryness I experience. I totally recommend this to anyone with easily irritated skin!

Eyeko London Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

I received this eyeliner in my June Birchbox Review and I’ve pretty much been using it ever since! The felt tip on this is so easy to use and create thick or thin lines on my eyes. Plus, I love the change of pace with this deep purple color when I feel like black would be too harsh. It’s been a nice change for summer!

ECO Tools Bath & Shower Gloves

I mentioned these awhile back in my Target Beauty Haul post. I am so glad that I purchased these! They are amazing to use in the shower with any soap or body wash because they help massage the ingredients into your skin while at the same time gently exfoliating so when you’re done, your skin is SO SOFT! My skin is always so incredibly soft when I step out of the shower now and it’s given my skin a nice glow which is awesome for the summertime! Plus, they were so cheap at $2.99 USD so you can’t beat that!

That’s all my June beauty faves! I hope you enjoyed!
