Frequently Asked Questions

What cleanser is good for oily skin?

If you have an oily, congested skin then you will want to ensure you tackle the breakouts, spots, and blackheads effectively. One of the biggest mistakes you can make if you have combination or oily skin is strip the skins natural oils when cleansing. Make sure your cleanser removes all the dirt, impurities, make up and SPF without leaving the skin dry. Oily and combination skins should avoid the feeling of dryness as this triggers the oil glands to go into overdrive and the skin will produce more oil. Oily skins can use cleansing oils and balms, if the skin is not cleansed thoroughly your skin will be susceptible to congestion, spots and blackheads. Our Energising B5 Gel Cleanser cleanses deeply, pulling out all the impurities and is the perfect care for an oily combination skin as the complexion is left clean, clear, balanced and purified.

What does a cleanser do for your skin?

Cleansing is the cornerstone of all great skincare routines, if you have a dry skin cleansing can bring instant comfort, likewise if you have a well formulated cleanser a sensitive skin can be immediately calmed. Get this step wrong and you can suffer with a whole host of skin problems, from redness, sensitivity, dryness, spots, and skin feeling taught and tight from dehydration. Our Active Repair Nourishing Cleansing Balm cleanses the skin respectively, carefully and with skin integrity. Removing all the impurities, breaking down make up and eliminating all sunscreen. A good cleanser should respect the skin barrier, removing dirt and impurities effectively and will not cause breakouts and strip the skin, leaving it dry and dehydrated. Instead the skin is left hydrated, comforted, soft, supple and clear.

Are cream cleansers good for dry skin?

Dry skins will love moisture quenching and instant comforting cleansing creams and balms. A dry, dehydrated skin is lacking in natural oils that bring comfort, hydration and nourishment to the skin. Cleansing creams and balms are what is best for a dry and dehydrated skin, in particular cleansing balms have an additional benefit that often-cleansing creams are not able to deliver. Fatty acids from plant oils bring vitamins and nourishment to the skin and aid repair, whilst hydrating instantly. Our Active Repair Nourishing Cleansing Balm is the perfect solution for dry, parched and thirsty skin that is struggling to keep moisturised all day, rich butters lock in moisture and plant oils leave the skin glowing with hydration.

How to chose a cleanser for oily skin?

A cleanser that can deeply cleanse, purify the pores and lift all the impurities are the best cleansers for an oily skin.  If you have oily, combination skin, you never want the skin to feel tight and taught as this means you have stripped the skin and also will cause the oil glands to be stimulated causing more oil to be produced. If you over cleanse or over strip the skin in a bid to remove the excess residue oil on the skin it will cause more breakouts. A Cleanser for oily skin should leave the skin, clean, clear and purified. Our Active Repair Nourishing Cleansing Balm unclogs pores, smooths the skin texture, helps to increase wound healing to dimmish the appearance of spots and breakouts.

What is a good facial cleanser for sensitive skin?

When the skin is red, sensitive and irritated a gentle cleanser is best. Avoid ingredients that are going to cause stress to the skin, the skin is already sensitive and a too strong or too harsh a cleanser will leave the skin red, angry and extremely uncomfortable. Gentle cleansers for sensitive skins should nurture, comfort, and cocoon the skin immediately upon contact. Our Active Repair Nourishing Cleansing Balm contains high levels of antioxidants to protect and plant oils to repair and strengthen a fragile skin. A sensitized skin needs protection, hydration, soothing and calming benefits from their cleansing routine
