So I must say, I am rather the facial cleanser connoisseur as of late, well, when it comes to knowing what my face likes anyway.
I've tried and tested a fair few in my time now and am rather proud of my somewhat hefty and ever growing cleanser collection.
One evening whilst deciding upon which cleanser to embrace my face with that night, I had a thought, a thought to share three of my must have cleansers with you. This blog is predominantly fashion based but fashion isn't my only passion. Whether it's skincare, make up, music or food, I want pagesbymegan to be a place for all my passions to live, and you guys know by now that when I like something... I really like something, so why the heck wouldn't I tell you about these three totally awesome cleansers that you both need and MUST get on your face and in your life RN!
So without further ado, I present to you my holy mother of all facial cleansers, Liz Earle's Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish. Now I know I've talked about this baby before and I know we all know just how awesome it is but I come with a slightly different angle this time.
Not only Is Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish seriously gentle, refreshing and the bomb.com when it comes to removing make up and leaving your face feeling oh-so-clean, but Liz Earle is also a bad-ass bish when it comes to rectifying the MESS that other cleansers, creams, lotions and potions have done to your rather sensitive and occasionally pimple-prone skin.
As I said above, I've tried out a large number of cleansers since puberty hit and some haven't been all that good for my poor face. I mentioned in this post here that Liz Earle brought my skin back from the deep, dark valley of heartbreak inparticular the heartbreak diet where I simply ate chocolate and chocolate alone for two weeks solid, but Liz Earle has been my absolute go-to for restoring my skin back to it's former glory after using one two many new products that weren't quite right for me.
Whether I've been to a festival and only taken facial wipes, a long haul flight that has done nothing for the hydration in my skin, or simply testing out new products, I can always count on my trusty Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser to be the light at the end of the terrible skin tunnel.
Next up we have the newest of the bunch with the Eve Lom Cleanser.
A bit of a cult classic in it's own right but something I never really got on board with due to it's ever-so-slightly-out-of-my-budget price tag. However, when Space NK were offering an epic goodie bag bundle when spending £150 or more I was rather excited indeed to find this cult cleanser hiding inside.
A good 6 months on and I still have the same 50ml cleanser in my stash, a little really does go a long way with this baby.
This cleanser is a lot more luxe than that of Liz Eale, with it's extremely silky and oily consistency it is the perfect cleanser to break down make up from the off. As soon as the just larger than pea sized amount hits my skin I can feel it set to work on breaking down all make up from the day, something that is ever so satisfying indeed.
With three swoops of a warm muslin cloth across my face my skin always tingles and ALWAYS feels oh-so deliciously smooth, silky and seriously hydrated and dewy.
It's fast become a skincare fave of mine and now the £55 price tag doesn't seem so ridiculous after all.
And last but certainly not least we have the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, a little beauty I must say. I succumbed to the Take The Day Off Balm after hearing Sammi talk so highly of it in one of her videos and to this day (it must be a year now) I still reach for it on a weekly basis to give my face the biggest dose of hydration.
I find that this cleanser is my most refreshing of all and really gives my skin a drink when I use it. You know that awful tight skin feeling you get sometimes after taking your make up off? Well, say goodbye to that feeling as this little baby does no such thing.
Similarly to the Eve Lom Cleanser the Clinique Take The Day Off Balm is of an oily consistency so really works to break down the days make up, it transforms from a balm into a silky fluid oil on application so really is a complete treat for my skin.
As a slightly cheaper alternative but with a heck load more product (125ml) I would highly recommend this cleanser if you're looking for something seriously refreshing indeed.

So there we have my top three cleansers that I reach for on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. These three little babies also work together really well using the Clinique or Eve Lom as a first cleanse and the Liz Earle as a second, they're a little match made in heaven and I would whole-heartedly suggest you get on board with them.
Please, if you have any other cleanser recommendations then do drop them in the comments below, whats another cleanser amongst friends?
