I’ve been using more and more organic and natural beauty products lately, and have definitely come to realise that organic or natural doesn’t have to mean ‘doesn’t work’ when it comes to beauty products.
Here are five fantastic organic cleansers I’ve tried recently.
1. Weleda One-Step Cleanser & Toner
Weleda One-Step Cleanser & Toner is a multi-use natural skincare product that removes makeup, deeply cleanses, clarifies and perfects skin. The active ingredient is natural Witch Hazel extract which works on all skin types, soothing and caring while refining enlarged pores.
This natural cleanser & toner from Weleda has quite a strange consistency – it has the exact consistency and colour of milk. The fragrance is described as citrus and it does have a strong fresh citrus and herbal fragrance. It cleanses without drying, but after use my skin doesn’t feel as squeaky clean as it does with other cleansers.
You can find out more about Weleda products on the Weleda website.
2. La Mav Sweet Orange Foaming Cleanser
La Mav Sweet Orange Foaming Facial Cleanser is a part of their ‘Purify and Clean’ range and is specially formulated to gently remove impurities from oily to combination skin types and contains bio-active ingredients including; extracts of Marshmallow, Sugar Cane, Green Tea and Orange.
This natural cleanser wasn’t quite as foamy as I was expecting and the fragrance wasn’t as zesty fresh as I had imagined from the name, but it left my skin perfectly clean without being drying.
You can find out more about La Mav products on the La Mav website.
3. Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser
Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser keeps skin clean and reduces breakouts and redness and is suitable for all skin types, including oily and sensitive. It’s SLS-free (sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) or sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) are foaming agents, but can be harmful to our health.)
You find out more about Sukin products on the Sukin website.
4. Trilogy Cream Cleanser
Half a bottle of certified organic Rosehip oil goes in to every bottle of Trilogy Cream Cleanser, a rich creamy natural cleanser that has been a best-seller for 10 years! It gives a really thorough cleanse without drying and smells lovely.
5. River Veda Everyday Carefree Cleansing Milk
River Veda Everyday Carefree Cleansing Milk is designed to gently cleanse and balance all skin types without stripping away natural oils or creating irritations. It has a zesty citrus fragrance courtesy of orange essential oil.
River Veda skincare is available online at www.riverveda.com
These natural and organic cleansers don’t tend to come cheap, but if you can splurge, sometimes it’s worth it and I can especially recommend the Trilogy cleanser. The Sukin cleanser is much cheaper and more accessible (as well as smelling amazing!).
