Ladies how do you clean your face?

Still using soap and water ? One of those foam cleansers maybe ?
Not a face washer ? Cleanser out of a bottle ? Then what to follow? I mean you canít leave your face greasy?

The beauty regime can never cease .
Iíve been doing it since my early teens but never stuck to the same method . Have you?

Re: Ladies how do you clean your face?

I havenít used soap and water on my face since l was about 15 or 16. I bought some Anne French cleansing milk and started to use that instead.
l then started using Ponds Cleansing Cream and l have used that ever since. Ponds then changed the formula and put it into smaller jars. I didnít like it.
I saw that the original green top jar was available on Amazon but came from America. I ask for it when my children ask me what l want for Christmas or my birthday. The jar is huge and it lasts for ages.
I put night cream on my face after cleansing.

I religiously cleanse my face with it every night. I could not sleep without taking my make up off. Even these days during lockdown and l didnít wear any make up. I still cleansed my skin.
I see looking after your skin from a young age is like paying into an insurance which pays off at the end of it!

Zuleika, l have a feeling you might ask me if l use an astringent after cleansing my skin.

Re: Ladies how do you clean your face?

I'm reading this hoping for some tips.... mind, I don't bother wearing makeup (haven't done for years) as once you reach a certain age it seems to look too much like mutton dressed as lamb.

I've heard of Anne French though ... that was a good light cleansing milk.

Has anyone tried these micellar water/cleanser concoctions?
They all seem to be the rage along with hyaluronic acid.

Morticia, l am pleased that you remember that Ďrave from the graveí name, Anne French!

I donít plaster make up on. I use it in a subtle way as there is nothing worse than loads of make up on an older lady.... ie. Barbara Cartland. Less is more.
I donít think thereís anything wrong for making yourself look brighter and that youíve made the effort.
I think itís worse..to let yourself go!

Anne French! I can still remember the smell and the tapering shaped bottle. Cleansers used to smell awful in those days.

I use Neal's Yard Calendula cleanser and no toner. Just nivea creme. I've used it for about ten years ever since I started reacting to just about anything. It leaves the skin lovely and soft.

Pressure washer.

Actually the gulf does the best job, incredible has your skin feels after a couple of hours of cool salt water.

If you look at the ingredients, most cleansers are the same, so I tend to purchase what's on sale that's not tested on animals. It's the moisturizer and sunscreen that matter most.
