Skincare 101: Finding your perfect cleanser
Is there anything better than that feeling of clean skin? But how do you achieve this and do you know if your product is actually cleansing the skin in the best way?
How do you feel about your current cleanser? Do you enjoy using it? How does it feel after you wash it off?
Cleansers are available for different skin types, but also it comes down to personal preference. Different formulations include creams, balms, gels, oils and foams. An ideal cleanser is one that gently removes makeup, SPF, daily grime. It is also so important that your cleanser cleans your skin without it feeling stripped of moisture and that you enjoy using it!
See below as I run through some our most popular cleansers here at Tonic Pharmacy...
