Budget Cleanser.

I hope it’s not too late to say Happy New Year! 
The holidays are gone now and so are most of my cleansers. As a rule, I make sure to have more than one cleanser at a time, these come in handy at different occasions

1. The foaming cleanser.
This comes in handy when you want to take off your makeup in a single step. Also great for cleansing in the morning as it leaves you feeling extra fresh.
When picking a foaming cleanser, always choose one without SLS.

2. The cleansing balm/oil.
If you have sensitive skin, clinique cleansing balm is one of the best options for your skin. It might be a little pricey but it’s well worth it. You can use this on its own or in combination with another product to double cleanse. Were it not that I hated the greasy feeling when applying this product, I would use it everyday.

3. The astringent.
When you mention astringent, most people will think of those alcohol laden toners. By astringent, I mean a watery cleanser or toner that you use as your second step cleanser or as your only cleanser if not wearing makeup (this kind is left on your skin and not rinsed away with water). Some people use rose water and glycerin but the moisture that this mixture lends to my skin always gives me breakouts (I have oily skin). If you have oily acne prone skin, choose a mild astringent with salicylic acid. This will work even better than a foaming cleanser with salicylic acid.

4. The cleansing lotion.
This is great for days when you don’t have access to clean water (or don’t want to touch water).
Use this  with a cotton ball to take off your makeup then follow with an astringent.

This beauty formulas cleanser is an example of a cleansing lotion.
For a person on a budget, this could be your only cleanser until you’re able to add more cleansers to your collection.
