The Affordable Cleanser That Feels Like Luxury Skincare

London, UK


If you’re a skincare addict you’re going to love the next few posts on ALBOE. Let’s just say my skincare buying habits during lockdown have been a tad out of control, but on the plus side, I’ve discovered a few absolute gems to share with you! 
 
My daily skincare starts with cleansing in the shower. It’s got to be quick, it’s got to be easy and it’s got to be affordable. Don’t get me wrong, I love a luxury cleanser, but I tend to save those for days where I’m wearing a full face of makeup, and these days that's never.

I’ve been trying drugstore brands (stuff I can find during the weekly Tesco shop lol) over the past 6 months and to be honest none of them left me wanting to buy again. So I decided to broaden my horizons and have a browse through some Korean beauty cleansers. That’s when I found Nature Republic’s Snail Solution Foam Cleanser face wash.





It’s £12 a tube but the amount you get vs the tiny amount you use every day makes this worth every penny! It’s going to last me ages and when you take that into consideration this is a bargain buy.

It’s a cream to foam formula which you only need a pea-sized amount of to cleanse your whole face. Apparently it’s vanilla scented, but personally I thought it was unscented as it only smells like soap to me. The lather it creates is thick, luxurious, and easily comparable to high-end brands. I would have happily paid more for this, but luckily I didn’t have to.


It’s formulated with snail secretion. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s the slime that snails leave behind when they move. Don’t worry it’s purified before being added to products and its benefits for the skin are endless. It’s known for repairing skin damage, fighting blemishes, evening skin tone, tightening skin, boosting elastin and collagen production, and more! If this doesn’t sound like the perfect way to start your skincare every day I don’t know what does.


My skin (oily combo) has been absolutely loving it. I’ve also noticed fewer breakouts and more oil control whilst using it, plus it’s never dried me out! It’s become my go-to cleanser and I haven’t even been tempted to look at others since switching to this. So if you’re looking for an affordable addition to your skincare routine I highly recommend giving this a go.

Until next time, J xx
