is 3-step cleansing overkill

l'oreal extraordinary facial cleansing oil // £7.99
garnier micellar cleansing water // £4.99
ren evercalm gentle cleansing milk // £16

yes hello let's just all ignore that i have been away for many days because i had shit to do and time is an illusion but soz anyway

ok down to business. so my broke lazy ass loves having clean skin & i'm pretty picky, i need my cleansing to be cheap n fast n furious. not too furious though, just the right amount. like 5% furious 95% nice and gentle

i've sworn by cleansing oil ever since it first made contact with my face back in the good ol' days when it was the 2nd hottest kid on the block (i was the hottest). the l'oreal one is the best one i've tried, i just smush a few pumps around my face for a bit and when i rinse it off everything's gone and all that hard work i put into my contour has literally been washed down the drain. a beautiful tragedy

i use micellair water on a cotton pad before going in with the oil if i have loads of eye makeup on just to avoid smearing such vast quantities of black shit everywhere. also fantastic for when you fuck up your eyeliner js

last is my actual "cleanser" cleanser bc i've gone a bit paranoid since hearing too many people talk about the shameful sin that is blocking ur pores so i gotta take extreme measures. i use this cream cleanser by ren (it says it's a cleansing milk but that is Wrong and a lie) after everything else and on its own in the morning. it's super moisturising and gentle and costs the same amount as a weeks' worth of food BLOODY LOVE IT THOUGH 10/10


  1. I must try using a cleansing oil, ive never seen this one before!

  2. nah 3 step cleansing isn't overkill. I always use a micellar water and an oil cleanser or a cream one (or both when I can actually be bothered). And yes, cleansing oils are so good, you should try the superfacialist one if you can get your hands on it!

  3. I've never tried a cleansing oil, I'm the epitome of lazy (especially with skincare) so I just use micellar water- I must change my ways
