i like taking a cotton ball and dip it in milk and swab my face with it...it is actually really gentle and gets all the dirt of. i rinse with dove soap afterward.
I use something similar at night for my face from PRADA beauty called 'Purifying Cleansing Milk'. Its soft and liquidy but disolves away grease and other pollutants such as dirt, sebum, and dead skin cells. Containing special olive extract lipids and goat milk...
For morning I use Purifying Gel Visage by PRADA beauty. It leaves a sqeaky clean fresh feel with oleic acid and alpha hydroxy grape seed fruit extracts and sea kelp alage.
For afternoon, (my favorite believe it or not!!!) is a cheap $4 dollar Dove Foam Cleanser. The ingredients listed are many of the same ones used by luxury department store cosmetics.
To finnish off; I use ' PLACENTAL PROTEIN w/ Liposomes and Placental Protein ' .... I know it sounds disgusting but it works better than anything I've tried from Kieh's or Prada. I would consider it along the line of Creme de LA MER because it uses the same scientific ' deionized water ' for ionically charged +/- restructuring & purifying.
Just wondering what everyone's favourite skin cleanser is. I have a bit of addiction with skincare products. Sad, but true! Mine is Lush's 'Angels On Bare Skin'. It's amazing stuff. It exfoliates, it cleanses, it gets rid of spots, it stops oil but doesn't dry out the skin either, and it leaves my skin incredibly smooth.
Do you have oily skin? I do and can't seem to find anything that will work.
Cetaphil is the best cleanser for irritated skin. So many people complain that it doesn't remove all your makeup BUT when your wearing makeup you should wash your face twice. First to remove make up and second to clean skin.
I use Mario Badescu's Enzyme Cleansing Gel which has this 'deionized water' that some are referring to. Though I am unsure of what that even means. Its fantastic, but I have known some people to not favor the brand. It certainly all depends on the individual. I have sensitive, combo skin.
Clinique facial soap (I dunno the exact name but it's in a green case)-I use it twice daily and it really helped clear up my skin.
Astringent-really good to get the oil off and to unclog my pores-I've always had problems with the pores on my nose being clogged.
Lancome facial exfoliator-I use it twice a week to make my skin look fresh and great.
If I have zits, I put a little Zapzit on the spot four times a day-or whenever I am in the loo-and it can make the zit go down or come to a head within a couple days.
