No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser | Review

I realised one day when I was browsing the aisles of Boots (a.k.a my second home) that I hadn’t tried that much budget-friendly skincare. My philosophy has always been to invest in the products I use on my skin so I tend to ignore the more affordable options. Obviously this isn’t practical or feasible for everyone; admittedly I do wince when I fork over the cash for some high-end skincare, so I decided to try and hunt out the hidden gems on the high street…

Of course there is a reason why some products are cheaper than others, and there are some pretty dodgy ingredients lists in the budget skincare department but this doesn’t mean this is applicable to every cheaper option. When I was searching for a cleanser, I came across the No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser which had a promising list of ingredients. I try to stay away from any butters (Shea and cocoa in particular), mineral oil and fragrance as I know that these have aggravated my skin in the past. The No7 offering is free of those except fragrance, but it is quite far down the list. The texture is quite interesting – you would typically expect a gel cleanser to be quite drying but this feels quite nourishing on the skin. As with all cleansers, I remove my makeup first (Body Shop Cleansing oil post here) and then massage into clean, dry skin. I then rinse a flannel under warm water and remove the cleanser from my face. It leaves the skin feeling clean (but not that stripped and squeaky clean) yet nourished and hydrated. 

I have been using it for about a month, and my skin is in pretty good condition right now. My skin hasn’t shown any adverse reactions to this product and it is fitting nicely into my skincare routine as a good simple cleanser. I have normal to oily skin, and although this cleanser is targeted at dry skin it still works perfectly fine for me. For £9.50 I think this is a steal, and I can definitely see myself repurchasing this in the future. 

Have you tried any No7 skincare? I am now very intrigued about the rest of the line…
