Cleanser is one of those skincare items every girl needs, especially one who is sleep deprived. It needs to be quick and cure a number of aliments in one go. That's why I tend to prefer a cream cleanser. It removes make-up, hydrates and moisturisers - so theres no need to faff around before bedtime.
I tend to change it up every few weeks depending on what my skin is doing and I'm always on the look out for new, exciting products. We were given a demonstration on how the Bûche de Noël was made - first ones in Europe I believe - and I knew this was going to be a new winter staple.
At first glance it;s hard to believe this is a cream cleanser. To look at it you'd think it was a clay mask or even a scrub but once you combine with water it really comes alive. There's just enough grit to offer a light exfoliation and the ground almonds and cocoa butter makes it luxurious moisturising. It's guaranteed to quench your winter dry skin.
A little goes a long way with this product so it's great value for money. Adding a piece of cleanser to the palm of your hand, mix together with a little water until you make a paste. Massage into your skin in a circular motion, working on any problem areas, then rinse with warm water. I also like to use a hot face cloth afterwards, I find it ensures I've removed every last bit.
The Buche De Noel contains a combination of mandarin/satsumas, dried cranberries (it's like Christmas in a cup) Kaolin, a natural occurring soft clay what helps to buff away dead skin cells and draws out any impurities and a touch of brandy just in case it wasn't Christmassy enough.
