Cleanser | 3 different product types

Cleansing your face is an essential step to good looking and soft skin. Not removing your makeup can lead to pimpels and over all blemishes. Yes, we are all sometimes lazy or too tired, but this extra step is really worth it. There are quite a few different types of cleansers you could use and i will show you three of them i like and what i use them for.

Since three month or so i am using cleansing oils on a daily bases on love it for makeup removal. It makes my skin feel soft, not dehydrated and i jsut like the feeling afterwards. You put the oil onto your skin massage it in, gently rub over your eyemakeup and mascara. Then rinse it off with warm water and remove excess makeup and oil with a towel. Done. I am using the Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil and the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten Cleansing Oil at the moment and i am loving both. The oil from Super Facialis makes my face feel more awake and i really like the citrus scent it has. I come to like the Cleansing Oils and i am always coming back to it then and now.

A long time favorite of mine before i switched mainly to cleaning oils and balms. It's easy to use and the makeup comes of so quick. Just pour a bit on a cotton pad swipe it over your face and your done. For mascara press the cotton pad on your eyelids, wait a few seconds and maybe rub it afterwards gently until the leftover mascara is gone. You can also remove lipstick with it. It's a easy and quick way, for those who are lazy (like me sometimes) or just for the extra after cleansing to remove leftover makeup. The micellar waters doesn't irritate your skin or dehydrate it in any way. My current favorite is the Loreal Sublime Soft Micellar Solution which is a dupe to the Bioderma Sensibio H2O, but there are a lot of different micellar water out there (Garnier, Nivea, etc.). Everytime i run out of my bottle i feel kind of lost without it, because nothing gets my leftover mascara or smudged mascara after the shower better off than this. Definitely a staple in my cleansing routine.

This is a quite new addition to my cleanser collection since everyone is using cleansing balms today. I wanted to see if there is a difference to the other cleansers i use and which type i prefer. So i went and picked up the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm and i figured out that i like to use the cleansing oils for the makeup removal and the balms for face cleansing afterwards. The balm in the package is quite solid and you have to press your fingers in it to get the product out, but once you massage it onto your skin it melts to a smooth balm/ oily texture. The feeling on the skin is just so spalike and if you like to use for this it gets all of my mascara, eyemakeup and facemakeup without any rubbing. So the balms get a thumbs up from me.

In the end every product type has it's benefits and it depends on your personal preference which one you want to use. I am switching between the produtcs from time to time, but at the moment i really like the oils for removing my makeup and the balm or micellar water for face cleansing.

Which type do you prefer and which cleanser is your favorite at the moment?
