When I don’t have a spare €57 for my favourite La Prairie foaming cleanser, I opt instead for Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, which if I’m honest does exactly the same job.
The mild formula thoroughly, but gently, cleans skin and removes make-up without over-drying or stripping skin of its natural oils. It also dissolves excess oil, dirt and debris – the baddies that can clog pores and cause bemishes.
A little goes a long way and while it won’t last as long as the La Prairie Foam Cleanser, expect to get a couple of months out of it.
€20 from the Kiehl’s store on Wicklow Street, Dublin 2.
