Ahhhhh the absolute best in face cleansers!

Here is another area where I splurge: my face wash. These cleansers are so great that I certainly get to save on acne treatments and on make up remover because they do it all. When I am really on top of it I use a different cleanser for morning and night: Purity Made Simple by Philosophy and Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel by La Roche Posay. If I had to choose just one, it would be the Purity Made Simple(often in the winter I just use this one). It is mild, soft, luxurious and it really washes junk off my face. The Effaclar is super cleansing-I actually came across this cleanser when I worked for a facial plastic surgeons 8 years ago(goodness time flies!). Both get nice and foamy which is a must for me because I want to feel like my face is getting really clean. You don't need to use a lot of either product-so they last a long time. I get lots of compliments on my skin and these cleansers, my addiction to sunscreen, and the crazy amount of water that I guzzle are definitely why :)


  1. I have been looking for a new facial cleanser and decided to try La Roche Posay after reading your recommendation. 2 words...LOVE IT! It is so gentle and soft on my skin, but it get all my makeup does it do that?!? Pure genius. Thank Hil :)

  2. Oh yay-Im so glad you like it!!! Im out and have been using cheapo face wash and my skin looks like crap! I need to get myself in order and go buy some!!
