  1. Sure have. Tried both Trilogy's cream cleanser & their rosehip cleansing oil, but can't use either of them anymore. :o( (REALLY miss the oil cleanser too.) I've just recently bought a new cleanser from NZ brand The Herb Farm, keen to try that out once I'm done with my current cleanser (The Ordinary's Squalane Cleanser).

  2. I have tried the Andalou Rose cleanser, and it’s absolutely gorgeous! I have every intention of trying this Vitamin C cleanser, but my local Priceline has always run out and I haven’t been able to get it anywhere. I’ll keep trying.

  3. Have used many in past (sukin, swisse, trilogy, weleda, dr. hauschka, blessed by nature, green clean…etc). Atm using ordinary squalane balm and neostrata mandelic cleanser.

  4. You can never go wrong with Weleda. Dr. Hauschka is another favourite brand of mine. I’m curious about Swisse skincare and really want to try a few of their products as they look really good.

  5. I’m using this cleanser too, I always feel cleaner with a foaming cleanser. The Swiss one sounds nice and not pricey so if you don’t like it then you haven’t wasted much money.

  6.
