March Favorites: NEUTROGENA – Extra Gentle Cleanser

This is without a doubt my favorite cleanser:


It is extremely gentle, fragrance free and has none of the harsher cleansing agents which are more likely to irritate the skin (no SLS). If you have easily irritated skin, like me, which tends to feel extra sensitive after a day of wearing full make-up it is so important that your cleanser will calm the skin.

This cleanser has some really good anti irritants, namely: Bisabolol and Camomile and Licorice extract. On top of this is some Vitamin E (Tocopherol) which is a great anti-oxidant. ** Antioxidants are nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and enzymes (proteins inside your body) that can help to prevent and repair damage to your body’s tissue. I will write an entire post about this in the next day or two.

The best thing about all this is it is inexpensive, and available in most drugstores (if you are in the US). For people like me, in the UK, I have to buy on Amazon but it is still under £10 for 200ml.
