I’ve been varying my skincare a lot lately, depending on what I feel that it needs and one of my most used cleansers is this lovely release from Elemis, the Melting Cleansing Gel:
This cleanser is similar to cleansing oil, but in a gel form. You apply it to dry skin and then add water. The product then turns into a milky liquid to rinse off.
This gel is lovely…I started using it a month ago when my skin started kicking off and I found this highly soothing to use. No irritation or dryness, which I can get with cleansing oils (hence I only use them when I have heavy duty make up to use).
I do find overly complicated cleansing products a pain in the bum to use. I guess with this product because it’s applied to dry skin and all you need to do is rinse – it makes it super duper easy and it feels cleanser than a cream cleanser.
It doesn’t foam at all – I am not a big fan of foaming cleanser anyway unless they are totally non drying.
My only issue with this cleanser is just how clean the skin gets – if I’m not wearing much make up then it’s fine. If I have lots of warpaint on then I feel like I need a double cleanse. Also, I seem to have gone through this tube quite quickly as I use quite a generous squidge each time.
A really lovely cleanser well worth trying if you want something that feels more hydrating than a cleansing oil.
This costs £19.40.
