Current Cleanser Round Up

Hello Beauties,
As you know, I love using a cleansing oil/balm to remove my makeup at the end of the day because it's quick and easy. I have recently noticed that I actually have 4 products of this type and so I thought I'd give you my thoughts on them. All of the below are applied to dry skin and then rinsed away with water to cleanse the skin.

First up is the infamous Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish (£14.00). I have used this for the past 6 years and absolutely love the stuff. It's probably the most popular cleanser of the lot and I think a lot of people have tried, tested and converted to this stuff (including my sister who has no idea about most beauty products). If you haven't come across the cleanse and polish before, it has a nice herbal scent that is very relaxing and leaves skin feeling clean and soft. It's suitable for all skin types and has never broken me out at all. Definitely one to try.
The second one I've got is the Clarins Pure Melting Gel Cleanser (£20.50). This is a gel/balm cleanser with a lovely moringa scent to it (smells delicious). My problem with this one is that I feel like I'm dragging my skin a lot when I go to rinse it off. It doesn't have a very smooth-rinsing-off factor which makes me quite hesitant to use it. It also stings my eyes quite a lot, so I usually stick to using this as a morning cleanser when I'm make up free.
The third one is The Body Shop's Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil (£11.00). This is my FAVOURITE one by far, because of the quality and the price. This stuff is amazing and does not break the bank. I've been through 3 bottles and bought the solid version for holiday. Although it's an oil, if you have oily skin you shouldn't ignore this product. It doesn't make your skin more oily, but actually helps breakdown the oils and products on your face to leave you with clean skin. It doesn't sting my eyes and takes every trace of makeup off with only 2 pumps.
The final one is the Una Brennan Skin Renew Cleansing Oil (£10.99). I bought this, because I've read a few reviews from people who really like this oil and I had run out of my body shop one so I thought I'd give it a go. The oil smells divine; much like the Satsuma scent from the body shop (my fave). As a cleansing oil though, it's ok. This one definitely stings my eyes and I've also found that it doesn't remove all my makeup, so I'm always having to go in with a second cleanser to ensure it's all off my face. For the price point, I would have to say that you're better off just sticking with The Body Shop offering.
Have you tried any of these cleansers? What are your thoughts?
Thank you for reading
