As soon as the hot and humid weather arrives a multitude of things can happen to our skin. Firstly it can become more clogged and blemish prone due to the use of SPF, it can produce more oil, need much more hydration or become super dry.
Whichever category your skin falls into, it can be a good idea to shake up your cleansing routine so as not to overload it too much, but still use a product that removes dirt and hydrates and balances the skin. Over the past 6 weeks I have been testing a huge variety of cleansers to see the results in much warmer weather.
If you recently read my post about J-Beauty and K-Beauty trends HERE then you will be aware that my most loved brand of 2018 is Its Skin. I absolutely adore their products and how quickly and effectively they work on my skin. I was super pleased to receive a new product from them in the shape of this beautiful gel cleansing foam. Now, I will have a brand focus feature coming up soon as I have a lot more from this brand that I cannot wait to share with you, but for today lets talk about this incredibly uplifting cleanser. At the heart of this fun, trendy Korean based skincare brand, is a seriously dedicated team of dermatologists that are intent at finding skin solutions. This cleanser fits the bill for anyone wanting to brighten and refine their skin this summer and all year round. This Vitamin C cleanser has a beautiful citrus scent and a very lightweight gel texture. I love to add a little to my clean hands and gently foam before applying to my face. It is not one of those harsh foams, it is very gentle, almost silky in texture and rinses of easily, leaving behind a glorious soft, smooth radiant looking skin. Highly recommend.
SVR Laboratoire Dermatolique Cleansing Foaming Gel –
This is part of the Physiopure range, which is a cleansing and make up removing range containing Oxygenating Magnesium. All of SVR products are tested on sensitive skin, and contain high formulations of active ingredients that feel super pure and fresh. This gel cleanser feels like water on the skin. It is super cooling and as you apply it to the skin and add a little water with your finger tips, it turns into a really creamy foam. Perfect for all make up removal as a thorough cleanse. It is more suited to an oily/combination skin as it really balances the skin and controls breakouts.
This pure and mild micellar water is absolutely beautiful. It became a constant in my skincare routine from the first moment I tried it. I just love a good micellar water, they are so quick and simple to use. This one is super fresh, super cooling and super hydrating. In the warm weather we have been having in the U.K of late, this has been my morning “wake up” go-to. I open my eyes and literally sweep this over my face on a cotton pad, to remove any traces of sweat from the night. Straight away it refreshes my skin, like a cool breeze and wakes me up. If you do want to use this for make up removal, it is quick and easy refresher and can be taking over the whole face, eyes and lips. I absolutely love it and it is super affordable too.
Pevonia is an elite eco-friendly skincare line that provides effective, natural skincare products for men, women and pre-teens of every ethnicity and skin type. Not only do they offer over 100 professional in-spa treatments but their line offers over 150 at home products. I wanted to include this cleanser as it is from their Ligne Rose line which is specifically for anyone that has Rosacea. Pervonia describe Rosacea as
“Rosacea is characterised by persistent redness and sometimes unsightly tiny white papules and pustules, especially around the cheeks, nose and chin area.
It is a disturbing, chronic skin condition that is linked to the menopause, and is affected by climate, hormones or genetics. The RS2 Rosacea line helps combat this serious concern by alleviating, soothing, calming and healing the skin restoring it to a healthy complexion.”
If you suffer from this debilitating condition it can be hard to find a cleanser or skincare line that is gentle enough to work with your skin and not against it. This RS2 cleanser feels like a lightweight, luxury moisturiser upon application. Its water-based formulation is incredibly gentle whilst offering a lovely cleanse. Combining Chamomile and Green Tea, it really refreshes and cleanses sensitive skins, and is also anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant on the skin too. The packaging is simple, yet pretty and stays hygienic in an airtight pump and has the lightest kiss of rose fragrance. Wonderful.
Fragranced with Rose Water, this micellic cleanser is a delight to use. The 30ml is wonderful for travelling with as you only need a few drops on a cotton pad to remove make up. I enjoy this when I want a really quick cleanse on days when I may not be wearing make up or SPF and just want to refreshen my skin and remove any pollutants. Containing Hyaluronic Acid which locks in water and Organic Pomegranate to soften this skin, this is a wonderfully refreshing,Summer cleanse.
By no way is this a new product to me , this is in fact one of my top, must have cleansers and as I have not mentioned it on my blog in ages, and I do reach for this throughout the Summer, I needed to remind you of this. Firstly, if the amazingly uplifting, bright, fresh, happy scent of Mango, Papaya and Tangerine does not make you feel awake and happy then nothing will. The smell is beautiful, mouth wateringly beautiful! This Hydrating Cleanser contains high performance, active ingredient’s including Aloe and Grape seed which are used for their Anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and calming properties and Almond Milk which is amazing at removing excess oils and residues. It also contains Mango and Papaya which boosts the radiance of the skin, removes dead skin cells, and gives a gorgeous natural skin glow and Tangerine which is a natural toner . Tangerine balances the skin and releases this beautiful happy oil. This mood enhancing scent, coupled with everything else gives you a really power packed cleanser. This cleanser delivers amazing results for anyone that suffers from breakouts and sensitive skin as well as aiding hydration on a more mature or dehydrated skin.
I hope you have enjoyed a glimpse into these Summer cleansers. I really would recommend you change up your skincare in these warmer, humid months as our skin needs so much more hydration and nourishment. I have enjoyed getting to know some of the brands above that were new to me and hope you have stumbled across a real varied range to suit all of your skins needs.
I would love to know which cleanser you really like the sound or, or are loving right now. Please leave me a comment below.
