Cleansing Gel Oil

The Cleansing Backups

I think we’ve all been there, when we fall in a love with some product and it becomes an indispensable part of our regime. Our innate first world fear sets in, and we purchase multiples of the product like the apocalypse is going to hit tomorrow. So here are my back ups for a rainy day:P1010083

Bioderma Micellar Water – this has been raved and ranted on endlessly in blogsphere and modeling world. No other micellar water has come close to this, or is as gentle as this one.

Rodial Glamtox Cleansing Balm – Bloody love this balm. It’s a thick textured balm which I massage onto dry skin and it effectively removes moi makeup!

Rodial Dragons Blood Cleansing Water – Good but not as good as Bioderma Micellar Water. I use this one as an aromatherapy treat.

The Body Shop Nutriganics Cleansing Gel – my rave, rant and disappointment on it being discontinued can be found here.



The Body Shop: Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel Oil

P1010095I’m going to start out saying this is/was simply the most affordable, accessible, effective, gentle cleanser out there. Until The Body Shop USA decided to discontinue it (other countries continue to sell this). I have no idea why would they inflict such an atrocity on mankind, but here’s with a hope that they are bringing something even better!

Back to this wonderful goodness locked in an opaque travel friendly tube. It has a glorious slightly runny gel texture which upon massaging on dry skin turns into an oil giving just the right amount of slip. Effectively removes makeup and wonderful medium to give your face a massage as well. I gently wipe it off with a warm steamy face cloth/flannel/wash cloth (whatever you’ like to call it) leaving my skin nourished.

A simple darn cleanser that does its bloody job. ‘Was’ very affordable and on clearance now is cheap as chips ($6). If you still manage to find it near TBS get your hands on it, and just give it a try!
