Cyprus Internet Directory [ TAKE SEVEN FACE WASHES ]


Looking for glowing spring skin? We've tested seven face washes to find out what will really shift that winter grime

Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1
I can’t get enough of this. It's superb! While I was meant to be testing all seven, this was the one I kept sneaking back to. Neutrogena have come up with a very clever idea: a 2-in-1 face wash. Not only can it be used as a daily wash, it's also a weekly mask – leave it on for 5 minutes and you deep cleanse and condition. The white cleanser smells like clay and really cleans deep down. This is the one I will buy and buy again; my skin is now completely spot free!
Price: €6.98

St Ives Radiance Cleanser Apricot Cream Wash
The St Ives Apricot Scrub is the best exfoliator I have ever tried – so much so that I ask my mother to bring it out from the UK each time she visits. And this facial wash was a toned down version of the scrub – it's not only a rich, creamy cleanser, it also lightly exfoliates and "fights blemishes". Containing more than 80 per cent naturally derived ingredients, this was specifically for oily skin (mine is dry) so I was very surprised to find it didn't dehydrate my face at all. The only negative is that it's easy to go through this rather quickly.
Price: €6.32

Nutralead Liquid Soap
I've got to say that this was absolutely divine as a face wash once I got over the initial aroma, which was slightly rural Suffolk. The packaging being entirely in Greek, I haven't much of an idea what's in this. The only English wording says: "Pomegranate and jasmine liquid soap for facial cleansing and toning". It did take me absolutely ages to get it open, but when I finally managed to use it, I was most impressed. It left me clean without any dryness and my skin smelled flowery – a vastly aromatic improvement. Not the cheapest, but a good organic buy.
Price: €13.95

L'Oreal Happyderm
Another product I couldn't understand, as someone has spent a great deal of time sticking Greek labeling over the printed German. Neither language being meine glossa, I had a look at the funky pictures on the back. Apparently you have to shake before use and then hold it upside down. So I lay down on the bathroom floor with a flannel and gave this a shot. The white foam felt like silk on my skin. And my face certainly looked and felt clean without being squeaky. I had a nice glow too, but that may just have been from the rush of blood when I stood up.
Price: €6.60

Mastic Spa Mastic and Myrtle Face Wash
Mastic is mainly used as a chewing gum, having a strong slightly smoky, resiny aroma. Luckily this face wash had a fresh, lemony scent to it. I noticed it also contains Chios Myrtle – which Google informed me is the name of a cruise liner. It took me a while to realise that the myrtle could, in fact, be from the island of Chios. When I'd finished this epiphany, I gave the product a shot. The yellow gel felt smooth going on, and left my dry skin squeaky clean – I needed a really good face cream afterwards. More for greasy skin than my dry complexion.
Price: €14.85

Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash
I've been into the Body Shop since I was first a student, saving all my allowance to buy the White Musk range. So I was looking forward to the new Aloe products. As always with Body Shop merchandise, this was "fragrance-free, colour-free, soap-free, preservative-free", and though I needed to use quite a lot of this foamy wash to feel clean, it left my skin smooth, silky and without any need for moisturiser – surprising in a product that is specifically for sensitive skin. And I'm sure I'm doing my bit for the environment as well…
Price: €11.96

L'Occitane Honey and Floral Cleansing Jelly
I took this one camping as it's a bit posh looking and I wanted to stand out from the hippy soap-on-a-rope crowd! The first thing I noticed was the Braille on the label, the second was how much it looked and smelled (not tasted) like pure honey. This wash markets itself as a "Floral Cleansing Jelly" for sensitive skin. It certainly made my skin soft, and cleaned without drying. Oh, and however you hold it, it won't leak - no matter how many times you leg it out of the communal bathroom with a cockroach in hot pursuit. A really divine experience. Wherever you use it.
Price: €16.66
