We are quite lucky to have some incredible skincare products available at our high street beauty shops that don't cost more than a few quid. I feel like the growing popularity of Asian skincare brands and trends made me overlook some of my favourites for a while as I was eager to try so many exciting new things but there is so much to be celebrated by us here and all available at our local chemists.

I am of the opinion that there are some things that you should definitely splurge on if you can and some things you can save a good few pennies on, cleansers being one of them. Like shower gels, they spend so little time on the skin that aside from the main task of cleansing the skin, there really is very little need for them to contain anything too luxurious or additionally beneficial. Don't get me wrong, I love having a few luxury cleansers in the stash too for those days when I need a pampering pick me up, but generally I reach for cleansers that do the job well,  I enjoy using and that work with my skin type. Also they should be good value for money because I use them so often and they should be easily replenished - aka not something sourced from an obscure site whose warehouse is thousands of miles away and might never arrive.

These are two of my favourite cleansers of all and the best thing about them is they're both British high street products retailing for around £5 each. I've repurchased both of these which speaks volumes because it can be easy to move onto other cleansers and never look back. If you love or need a new cream cleanser then I highly recommend you pop into Superdrug and/or Boots to check these out.

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser - only £5.99 and most often on sale

Formulated with a host of plant and fruit extracts, this cleanser mildly exfoliates the skin to reveal a fresher looking complexion. Its a thick cream that you can use to perk up the skin first thing in the morning or as a second cleanse to thoroughly cleanse and remove impurities. It contains cocoa butter which makes it non-stripping and skin softening alongside kiwi and mulberry fruit extracts to gently exfoliate, protect and brighten the skin. You cannot take this in the eye area and it has to be removed with a warm damp flannel (this comes with its own muslin cloth too) and I don't find that it leaves any sticky or tacky residue. In my mind I compare this to my beloved Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser because the results are very similar - skin is left feeling softer and super clean and instantly looks brighter. I reach for this when my skin is looking generally dull or is in need of a deeper cleanse but I don't have the time to apply a mask. Its great value for money too at 150ml for the tube and free cloth. This would be suitable for all skin types too.

Good Things Manuka Honey Creamy Cleanser - only £4.99 and usually part of some special offer

This deliciously scented cream cleanser is luscious to use and helps to nourish the skin while ensuring your face is looking and feeling clean. This is fomulated with hydrating royal jelly, antibacterial manuka honey along with antioxidant rich black raspberry extract and vitamin E. I love this cleanser mostly in the winter when my skin is at it's driest and most dehydrated because it is quite rich without being greasy. But because I love it so much I do still tend to use it in the warmer months and its fine, even on my oily/combination skin, though I do think I appreciate its nourishing and hydrating abilities when the weather is cooler. You can rinse this cleanser off or use it with a warm damp flannel, which is how I prefer to use it, and my skin is left feeling so plump and soft and replenished. This truly is one of those affordable, underrated gems that most people would enjoy, unless you really don't like using cream cleansers. Its also a 150ml tube and, like all Good Things products, free from parabens, mineral oils and SLS despite its affordable price point.

Have you tried either of these cleansers? What is your favourite affordable cleanser and why? I'd love to know...
