Rate it: how are you cleansing your face right now!

By Emma | July 10 2012 | 61 Comments

Complexion brush, Neutrogena wave, Konjac Sponge, Muslin Cloths


It was never the most exciting beauty bit, but we all know that a good cleansing routine is the cornerstone of our beauty regime. Increasingly it seems like good ol’ cotton wool has had its day, with more and more of us turning to alternative cleansing methods – whether that be muslin cloths or fancy high tech gizmos, like the Clarisonic system or the Wave.

I’m a recent convert to the Konjac Sponge – and on a recent visit to Sephora, I picked up one of their complexion brushes, for good measure.

But what about you, what’s your preference? Are you a traditionalist, with the whole cleanse, tone and moisturise shebang?  A woman of the cloth, a scrubber or a gadget type of gal?! Tell us what you’re using RIGHT NOW – to the comments!

    Using angels on bare skin from lush & the hot cloth cleanser from no 7 .. would loooooooooveee the clarisonic!

    Eve Lom & muslin at night. Had a free Eve Lom mini facial in Harvey Nics, now I’m a covert. I buy it online of course, much cheaper. In the morning I use MD Formulations Glycolic Cleaner alternated with the MD face and body scrub. Skin is looking good at the moment! Wondering if this Konjac sponge would add anything to the morning cleanse….

    Nivea face wash in the shower in the morning. Origins gentle cleansing oil and a facecloth at night. I know everyone here raves about muslin cloths – is there a huge difference between muslin and a facecloth? I only use facecloths because I have them lying around because you always get them with towels! Also another question (sorry) – is there a right or wrong temperature for the water when you’re cleansing? I ask because the cold tap on my sink is broken so I tend to cleanse with water that is scorchio!

    I use Clarins Melting Gel and the eve lom muslin cloths, just like these better than others I’ve tried.

    I tried the Wave and really thought it was good, but then I felt it was causing broken capillaries. I think being as gentle as possible with your skin is the best option.

    I don’t use any scrub type products at all now. I use dermalogica gentle cream exfoliant, leave it on for 15mins and was off no scrubbing.

  • Cait says:

    Oh and I alternate the mornings with Soap and Glory’s the greatest scrub of all.

    Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel morning & night with my fab Ikea face cloths.

  • vonfluffy says:

    I use Liz Earle clease and polish in the morning and a night I use Dermalogica pre cleanse followed by Avene gel cleanser

  • Fifibelle says:

    Don’t use any gadgets for cleansing, have a few broken capillaries and am paranoid about making them worse!

    Using Neutrogena 2-in-1 face wash and mask at the mo, skin isn’t too bad either

    I’m using my Elemis Pro Radiance cream cleanser with a face cloth, and I’ve the Elemis Melting Gel to use next, which smells considerably like the Burts Bees’s orange gel cleaner. Both are fab and ever so gentle.
