We often get asked the difference between our two cleansers. Here’s an overview of how each cleanser works and the benefits.
Facial Cleansing Oil is your first port of call for cleansing. It is a technique that works by attracting like with like. This includes oils and sebum, dirt, make up, sunscreen and products etc. A cleansing oil will help bind all these dirty oils to the cleansing oil to help loosen, break up dirt and debris and bind to these oils ready for removal.
This cleanser can be your only cleanse or your first cleanse and makeup remover. It’s going to remove make up, sunscreen, waterproof mascara, as well as all the environmental pollution from the day etc. It’s gentle, nourishing and effective. Smells like a gorgeous pampering spa session with calming green herbaceous essential oils.
“This cleanser is amazing!!! I was suffering from perioral dermatitis and this has been a lifesaver. My skin was extremely inflamed and itchy and this has helped so much. It did not irritate my skin at all!!! My skin feels moisturised all day long.” – Kristy
For those with oily and acne prone skin using a cleansing oil can help to balance oil production. Our blend of gentle nourishing plant oils like Camellia, hypoallergenic Jojoba and Sunflower help to cleanse in a calm and soothing way. Cleansing and restoring essential oils of Juniper Berry, Clary Sage and Frankincense help to deeply cleanse for clear and soft skin.
Oily and acne prone
“I love this cleanser so much! I always had super oily skin and this completely balanced it out.” – Sara
Whether you hate cleansing at the end of the day, or just want a delicate, yet hard working, make up remover or looking for a super nourishing cleanser that doesn’t leave skin stripped – this is the cleanser for you.
“I LOVE this product! I would never have thought that an oil would be the best cleanser but I can’t believe I used to struggle with face wipes and make-up removers that left my skin angry and red afterwards. Although taking off make-up is still my most-hated activity, at least it’s now easy with this cleanser. I love to use a warm flannel on my face afterwards. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling hydrated and happy – goodbye angry red skin!
Highly recommend!” – Amy
Our other cleanser is the Gentle Foaming Cleanser which is a little more of a traditional cleanser. It’s versatile and fabulous if you’re not used to an oil cleanse or don’t wear a lot of makeup and want something lightweight but effective at cleansing.
It’s great as a simple, quick morning cleanse while working perfectly as a second cleanse at night to remove residual cleanser, dirt and makeup etc.
A combination of active fruit and botanical extracts include White Willow, Papaya and Quandong, which contain gentle enzymes and antimicrobial properties work to loosen debris, clear congestion and deeply cleanse pores. Antioxidants and vitamins help to feed and nourish the skin to reduce redness and improve the skin’s texture and tone. This promotes a clearer and brighter complexion.
Will it work for my skin?
We recommend it for all skin types as it’s gentle enough for those with sensitive skin. It isn’t drying and is excellent for combination/acne prone skin.
“I am loving my new foaming cleanser. My skin is very sensitive and it is so gentle. Hasn’t caused any irritation at all. Love my Babs products.” – Debbie
“This product is amazing, I tried it on my mid 40s skin and my 14 year old daughter tried it. It’s cleared her acne up in 2 uses.” – Cherie
Does it remove makeup?
While it will help to remove your basics, like foundation, concealer, BB & CC creams and the like, it is not a make up remover. We recommend using a specific makeup remover like our Facial Cleansing Oil as your first cleanse/make up remover which will make easy work of removing thicker/heavier products – like mascara and lip sticks, especially if they are waterproof.
