With so many cleansers and their claims to choose from, it’s no wonder that most of us find one and just stick to it.
But due to those unpredictable hormones, age (yawn) and the weather, our skin has changing needs in order to stay balanced- and that means understanding how to adapt our skincare accordingly. For instance, a lighter moisturiser and foaming cleanser (less creamy) if your skin is becoming spotty or oily, a richer moisturiser and creamy cleanser is your skin is dry.
I am fortunate in the sense that being a make-up artist AND a ‘blogger’ means I do get sent a lot of stuff – that means I do try new things out that perhaps I otherwise wouldn’t. In this case I’ve discovered products that suit my skin’s changing needs. But even then I will often return to old favourites for good reason-they work for me.
Recently I got my paws on this cleanser by Aurelia Probiotic Skincare, a brand I’d never have heard of, probably because I just don’t have time to look at magazines or beauty blogs.
As soon as this creamy cleanser anointed my face with Eucalyptus I knew it was a keeper. I LOVE the way it’s vapours clear the nasal passage and act as a natural disinfectant.
Whatever I do happen to use (foaming cleanser in summer, humidity and if I get spotty) to cleanse my face, I always use a muslin cloth to wipe it all off with. This ensures that all product is removed PLUS with the added bonus of being a mild, daily exfolliant, keeping your skin smooth and therefore reflecting more light-and that really helps keep your skin looking healthy, vibrant and at it’s best.
Aurelia says: “It fuses probiotic and peptide technologies with BioOrganic plant and flower essences to hydrate and soothe dull and dehydrated skin promoting a luminous, dewy, radiant glow whilst helping to prevent skin ageing. Fragranced with an uplifting essential oil blend of Eucalyptus, Chamomile, Rosemary and Bergamot this creamy cleanser along with its soft antibacterial bamboo muslin cloth buffs away dead skin cells and make-up whilst helping to stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process. This in turn speeds skin cell turnover, resulting in a brighter complexion with fresher, younger skin cells ready for hydration on the surface”.
