A’kin Pure Facial Creamy Cleanser & Toner


Lusciously creamy, marvellously make-up melting – and fabulously fragrant. There is a lot to love about this cleanser from all-natural skincare name A’kin (winners of several previous Beauty Bible Awards). In this case, A’kin Pure Facial Creamy Cleanser & Toner scooped a Beauty Shortlist Award in 2015 – and we’re not in the least surprised. In a generously-proportioned flip-top container, it delivers a really rich cleanser and remover that’s targeted at dry and sensitive skins (like ours). Regular readers will know that it takes a lot to prise us away from A Very Famous Cleanser Indeed, but we’re seriously impressed by this option. (We do prefer to use it with a muslin cloth, BTW – as with pretty much all non-micellar cleansers.)

The fragrance will hook you, we think: rose and geranium are happy bedfellows and further up the pleasure factor of this. Truly, a joy to use – and anything which encourages more diligent cleansing is excellent news for your skin.
