Celebrating Classic Cleansing Products

Celebrating Classic Cleansing Products

It’s our birthday! As we embark on celebrating 20 years of beauty, we’ve been reflecting some of the main reasons we have lots of returning customers who choose to shop with us, time and time again.

Classic Cleansing

One of the reasons is due to our range of classic, original and much-loved skincare basics. Of course, we always strive to be one step ahead, offering the latest devices and technologies that launch within the beauty industry.

However, a large portion of our customers like to rely on those traditional, trusted products, such as calming facial wipes, creamy moisturizing cleansers, and refreshing facial washes.

As much as we get excited about launching a new range of science-backed, dermatologist approved products, or those advanced facial toning devices, we give just as much focus on the basics.

Here’s our top 10 fuss-free, effective cleansing favorites. After all, classics are ‘classics’ for a reason…

  1. Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 150ml

    Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser 150ml

    Although there are many advanced methods to remove your makeup and any trapped dirt, a good old cream cleanser is still one of the most popular choices. A little bit of thick, creamy cleanser onto a cotton round and swiped around the face dissolves anything you need removing, along with softening and caring for your skin.

    This luxurious anti-aging deep cleansing cream from Elemis delivers exceptionally clean and clear skin, revealing a radiantly youthful looking complexion.

    Babo 3-in-1 Sensitive Baby Face, Hand, Body Wipes - Oatmilk & Calendula

    It’s important for us to remember that a lot of our customers have super-sensitive skin, and for them, the less they use on their skin can sometimes be much better.

    The key is to offer the most gentle solutions, such as Babo’s 3-in-1 sensitive baby face, hand and body wipes. These are so kind to the skin, they make a great choice for babies and those with extremely sensitive skin, the wipes are 99% natural and hypoallergenic.
