The best cleanser ever for sensitive skin

Anyone with sensitive skins have probably experienced the not so pleasant feeling of tightness,  prickling, or the visible redness occurring after face washing.
There are many factors that can trigger the skin to react quickly. Whether it is due to the heat, that particular skincare ingredient in your lastest serum, due to the stress, or linked to hormone unbalances, a really gentle beauty routine is key to keep reactions and redness at bay.
Considering that face cleansing is one of the most disrupting beauty steps for the skin's natural balance, you need to be sure to pick the right cleanser to address correctly your skin sensitivity issues. I have tested the Trilogy Very Gentle Cleansing Cream* (£23.00 for 200ml) thanks to the LoveLula blogger program and here what I think.

Dreaming of a delicate cream that can gently take off your makeup and thoroughty clean your skin without triggering any burning or tiggling sensations? That is what the Trilogy cleanser promises. Housed in a tinted glass pump bottle, the cleanser dispenses easily and one or 2 pumps per use are sufficient enough.

What is so good about the cleanser?

- the texture is awesome: non foaming, creamy, moiturising, doing a great job at maintaining the skin barrier balance.

- the formulation comprises a mix of some of the best skin soothing ingredients including Chamomille extract, the signature calming complex Syricalm™ to relieve itchiness and improve the skin defence fonctions.

- the presence of pure botanical oils such as Almond, Evening Primrose, and Camellia oils ensures a gentle cleansing while keeping the skin moisturised and supple.

- the cleanser is perfume-free and does not contain essential oils, so that is ideal especially is your skin is sensitive to strong smell/ specific molecules.

How do I use it?

Face cleansing is an important step-if not the most important, in my skincare routine. Because the formula of the Trilogy cleanser feels really precious and nurturing, I like to thoroughly massage it on my face, insisting on the cheeks, forehead, and chin. I wait a few minutes, then start to add a bit of water to ultimately rinse it off with lukewarm water. I do not use any muslin cloth or facial brush. I love to use the Very Gentle cleansing cream as a 2nd cleanser in the evening and on its own in the morning.

How does my skin feels afterwards?

Although I can't claim that my skin gets easily irritated, harsh weather conditions tend to make my skin drier or slightly redder hence my needs to often choose skincare products for sensitive skins.
I love the way my skin feels after using the Very Gentle Cleansing Cream: soft, moisturised, and more importantly cleansed.

Any cons?

I have noticed that the cleanser struggles a bit to remove a full face of makeup. Light makeup removal stills work though. Considering the really nurturing formula, I didn't not expect any other perfomance. And that is fine.

The bottom line

The SLS-free Very Gentle Cleansing Cream is an ideal everyday cleanser that gently cleanses the skin while keeping flare-ups at minimum. It is a delight for any sensitive skins but the cleanser can also work for any other skin types in search for a bit of comfort. If you are wearing heaving makeup, use then first a cleansing oil/balm to remove the stubborn mascara/heavy foundation. Light makeup do not resist to the creamy buttery milk though! All in all, this is a fantastic skincare cleansing item that won't disappoint sensitive souls!

4 beauty products I can't live without

I tend to be a skincare/makeup minimalist. I like to keep my beauty regimen simple. Although I love discovering new natural beauty products, I have been really faithful to a few products since a while now. The reason behind it is obvious: if my skin looks happy and healthy with the skincare items I use, why would I change or switch products?
Today, I would like to share with you the 4 awesome beauty products that have changed my skin and beauty routine into a better one. Read below!

The first product I always keep in my beauty cabinet is one that is simple, pure, amazingly scented, soothing, toning, rebalancing, calming. Have you guessed it? Yes? No? Well, I'm talking about organic Rose water.  I like to reach it after cleansing my face to rebalance the skin. It helps to readjust the skin's pH to a more acidic level. I use it twice a day after morning and evening cleansing routine. Rose hydrosol has great results with irritated and sensitive skin as it helps to gently decongestion and refreshes the skin. I am currently using Alteya Organics Rose water, and I love it.

Moving on to my 2nd top skincare products now. If you are following my blog, you are probably aware of my love relationship with the Kimberly Sayer Ultra-light organic facial moisturiser. Honestly, I can't get enough of this super light yet hydrating moisturiser. It is aimed at combination/oily skins, but will perfectly work if your skin is normal to dry. (Having said that, if you prefer a richer texture, you can always try their antioxidant cream which also contains an SPF). It is not heavy, quickly absorbed, and I can right away apply my makeup. I use it everyday without any fail. This is really a solid buy for me since it delivers great results and my skin looks really healthy.

The other skincare item I always have in my beauty cabinet is a bottle of organic Rosehip oil. Designed to all the sin types, Rosehip oil remains one of my favorite night treatments. My skin is always glowing and "reset" the morning after- definitely looking more unified. Small imperfections also seem to heal quicker when I use it. Since Rosehip oil is very sensitive to oxidation, I tend to choose beauty brands that sell Rosehip oil in a dark packaging rather than in a "pretty" packaging if that makes sense. Trilogy Skincare Rosehip oil and Alteya Organics cold pressed organic Rosehip seed oil are my top choices.

Last but not least on my list of can't-live-without products is the amazing Absolution face scrub. This scrub is more like a rich cream than a light emulsion. The tiny micro-granules and the AHA's gently buff away dead cells and impurities leaving the skin soft and super glowing. I find that la Creme gommante combines the effects of an extremely gentle peeling treatment with the restorative effects of a potent repairing cream. All in all, this is a winner for me and will remain so.

And there you have it! Have you spotted any favs? Tell me below!
