Some of you may or may not know that I am totally cleanser obsessed. Whether it be a milk, cream, gel or balm, I just can't resist trying new ones and adding them to my stash. Everyone has a weakness...
Cleansing is so personal as everybody's skin is different and reacts better to certain products and methods. I love using rich, oily balms that nourish the skin, leaving it soft and protected, while some people prefer foams which give a more 'squeaky clean' effect. There's another common cleansing preference and that's emulsifying. This means the product breaks down and turns into a milk when water is added to it. It also eliminates the need for a flannel/face cloth because of the thinner texture. Even though I prefer to remove my cleanser while it’s in the ‘oily’ stage, I thought I’d share with you some of my favourites for emulsifying. 
Good Things Manuka Honey Creamy Cleanser - £4.99 
This is such a bargain product. It's a gorgeous cream cleanser that gently removes all grease, dirt and left over makeup. It uses Royal Jelly to condition and replenish the skin whilst anti-bacterial Manuka Honey cleanses and balances the skin. I like to massage this into dry skin for about a minute, then add some water to loosen the product and then remove it with a flannel. Of course you can rinse off if you prefer. This is a good option if you're on a budget but need something nourishing and good for all skin types.

REN Rose Centifolia Cleansing Gel - £6 
This is my go to for the Summer time. It's a lovely light gel that cleans the skin without stripping the natural oils of the face. When my skin is acting up I usually go for this as it's really gentle but still does a good job at thoroughly cleaning the skin. It smells of rose which I find really soothing. Once I've worked it into the skin I'll add some water and it turns into a gorgeous foamy milk that rinses off in no time.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser - £14 
I have become totally addicted to this product over the past couple months. It contains ingredients like Rosemary, Chamomile, Cocoa Butter and Eucalyptus Oil which my skin just seems to love. This again turns into a milky cream which is very comforting on the skin. It's also a great one for double cleansing. If you're looking for something with more oomph, this one is for you!

Pixi Skintreats Glow Mud Cleanser - £18 
As the name would suggest, this is a mud based cleanser that helps to brighten, exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin after just one use. It has a very similar scent to Glow Tonic. This is a bit drier in texture compared to the others which can make it difficult to massage into the skin, so I find emulsifying to be essential with this one. It's easily one of my top 5 cleansers of all time!

Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel - £21
This is the cleanser that gave me the idea for this post in the first place. It's actually designed to transform from a gel, to an oil and then into a milk. It's a gorgeous silky formula made with Marula Plant Oil to promote collagen production, improve skin elasticity and protect against free radical damage. This is suitable for all skin types and is a great all round cleanser. It has a slight musky scent which is so comforting to inhale. I think this is my favourite out of the bunch and it's definitely worth checking out!

Is emulsifying your preference? Which products do you think work best?
