As a uni student on a budget I’ve had to steer clear of the Emma Hardie and REN cleansers recently and opt for something a little more purse friendly! And although I was skeptical about the affordable cleansers, I’ve found 3 brilliant ones all around the £5 mark!
LUSH Angels on Bare Skin*. This being the most expensive option at £6.75, it’s made of all natural ingredients and leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft and clean. It is a solid cleanser that you mix with a little water to form a paste, it also contains little chunks of almond to gently exfoliate the skin. It has a light scent from the lavender and rose oils and is very soothing on the skin. I’d say its a good cleanser for all skin types as it’s cleansing, exfoliating and nourishing, this pot was made freshly for me at a LUSH event and I’m going to have to head back and repurchase asap!
The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash*. Tea tree is a great ingredient to help calm blemish prone skin, so I bring out this cleanser when my skin is looking a little spotty. It’s a smooth and creamy formula that clarifies the skin without leaving it tight or dry. It’s a great everyday cleanser for those with oily skin or for a one off cleanse when your skin is in need!
Amie Morning Clear. I’ve repurchased this cleanser a few times already, it’s similar to The Body Shop offering but more suitable for every skin type. It has a smooth and creamy formula and leaves the skin feeling soft and plump whilst still being very cleansing. It’s very gentle and has no harsh fragrance, and at £4.95 it’s become my daily go to cleanser.
There we go, 3 affordable cleansers that have kept my skin looking and feeling good without breaking the bank!
