I’m still experimenting with facial cleansers ever since I stopped using cleansing oils. On a previous occasion, I was playing around with cleansing milk or cream cleansers. They were ok, but not quite what I was looking for. Then, I was using cleansing water and micellar water. Refreshing, but although I really like the Bioderma micellar water and use it almost daily, something was lacking.
So lately, I’m trying out cleansing balms. The first one I tried was the Eve Lom Cleanser. I like it. I love travelling with it in particular, because it is an excellent makeup remover and leaves my skin feeling lovely, soft and clean. It is also chock-a-block with mineral oil which many people shy away from. So, I recently gave an organic option a go.
The organic option is the Antipodes Grapeseed Butter Cleanser and I must say, it took me months to warm up to this and it came down to learning how much to use, and the best way to remove it. Ever since being introduced to the brand, I have to say that my perception of organic skincare has changed a little.
I used to shy away, because I had a poor experience before. But my experience with Antipodes skincare has so far been positive in almost all respects. It does please me to realise this as I now have a brand I can turn to if I want something organic and natural.
So, the Grapeseed Butter Cleaner. You have to firstly understand that this is a cleansing balm. It is quite unlike your regular wash and go cleanser. It takes a little more effort and a little more work. But it is worth it, I promise 🙂
