Everyday, when I wake up, the first thing I feel the need to do is wash my face. Before bed I will have at least double cleansed, massaged and put a whooole load of lotions and potions on, and of course, upon waking, toxins and residue have seeped out of the skin. Enter morning time cleansers!
Every morning I choose between one of the above - the Kiehl's Oil Eliminator Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Face Wash for Men, and The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash. Both are relatively new purchases - The Body Shop was one I purchased for when I was off to Dubai - I thought it would be a lovely, deep cleansing but nourishing choice for a world of extremes - immense heat, humidity and then freezing-cold air conditioning. Lo and behold, I was right! Just like it's name, it is super creamy, a thick, but fluid texture that calms and cools the skin immediately. The Kiehl's however, is a much newer addition, that was actually purchased at Dubai Duty Free. I have been wanting to try Kiehl's for the longest time, but tend to like to try a small kit, or some samples first. This kit consisted of the Exfoliating Wash. a toner, and a moisturiser, and like I often do, I picked the kit for men! This particular face wash is a lovely, thick, gel consistency with beads suspended in the formula. Generally my preference is a chemical exfoliant, but the exfoliating action within this is super-soft, but effective. Both of these are perfect for refreshing and waking-up the skin of a morning!
