I seem to be on a bit of a skincare revamp in recent times. My skin decided to throw a major hissy fit in January where everything I used to do and use (I didn’t change any part of my regular skincare routine) no longer worked and I was breaking out like I was a teen again, yet experiencing serious dry skin. I knew I had to do something. I told you earlier about my toner + cotton pad rediscovery that helped me. Now, here’s something else I changed. I haven’t been using cleansing oils for over a month.
Not using cleansing oils to remove my makeup and as part of a double cleansing routine is something really big for me. I’m such a cleansing oil evangelist and I’ve used so many. It has been such a part of my skincare routine for so many years that it was almost impossible for me to just abandon it. But I did. Instead, I turned to using cream/milk cleansers.
As luck would have it, I didn’t own any, except 2. The last time I used a cream cleanser, it was the Neutrogena one. Worked a treat but I didn’t replenish because… you guessed it; I went back to my oil cleansers. However, after rooting around, I discovered 2 – Swissline Water Shock Comforting Emulsion Cleanser and Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk.
I have been using them both this past month and I have to say that its different. My skin actually stopped feeling so dry and tight and it really seemed to help my skin feel more comfortable. Naturally, its also made me curious about trying other cream or milk cleansers 😀 Do you use any? Interestingly enough, both the cream/milk cleansers I’ve been using come in 2 different price categories 🙂
