Neal's Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm
I've mentioned this product before in my night time skincare routine post and current beauty favourites video. I was lucky enough to get this in my goody bag from a Neal's Yard Remedies event I attended last year. The balm is so smoothing and lovely to use, I apply it to dry skin and wipe it off with a muslin cloth soaked in hot water. It can also be used as a mask and as a intensive moisturiser. I love this and I will definitely buy it again at some point, probably not immediately though as it's rather pricey! Neal's Yard Remedies are cruelty free.

No7 Cleansing Lotion
I was sort of coerced into buying this when I bought the No7 Facial Brush! I went to the till and she told me it was 3 for 2 and pretty much convinced me to go back and have another look, so I went to go and get a cleanser to use with the brush. I was going to get some face wipes too but the No7 lady wouldn't let me (seriously! She said it was too much temptation...) and recommended this as a 'lazy option' for taking make up off. I'm still not 100% sure how it you're meant to use it... I think you just squirt some onto a cotton pad and wipe any make up off, but I feel weird not using water so I always rinse my face after just to get off any residue. No7 are no longer cruelty free.

Avon Pure Porefection Self-foaming Cleanser
I only bought this because it was something like £1 in the sale section of the Avon catalogue a few years ago (yes, years... oops!). I've been trying to use it up but I really don't like it, I think it dries out my skin, and according to Caroline Hirons foaming cleansers are evil anyway! I will probably just chuck this out before I do my skin any more damage with it.
No7 Melting Gel Cleanser
I bought this to use with my facial brush and so far I do quite like it. It comes out in a gel which you apply to damp skin, wet the brush and use it, then rinse it off. When rinsed off it becomes more of a milk which makes it really easy to remove. I don't like the packaging of this though, I find it really hard to get the gel out for some reason! No7 are no longer cruelty free.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
I love Liz Earle, they are so generous with their samples! I got this free when I bought my eyebrow pencil. I also got a Skin Tonic sample when I bought the Skin Repair Moisturiser so I look forward to using these together. I've not used this in a long time so I can't comment on it at the moment. Liz Earle are cruelty free.[£13.25/100ml - Liz Earle]
No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser
I've actually had this for ages, it's ridiculous! I bought it when it first came out but it's just been sitting in my cupboard ever since, so bad! Hopefully I will get round to using it soon after kick-starting my skincare routine this year. No7 are no longer cruelty free.[£9.95/200ml - Boots]
Wishy Washy Lemon & Lime Scented Nettle Complexion Soap
I was sent this in my lovely package of goodies from Alex at Wishy Washy! It is a solid cleansing bar so I think this will last for ages! I've been planning on using it in the morning as I only rinse my face, but I've been far too lazy and only used it a couple of times... It has a citrusy scent and lathers up nicely even though all of Alex's products are SLS free! I can't give a full review yet but I do find that it leaves a bit of residue on the skin so I need to use a flannel to remove it fully, I think it would be better if it was more water soluble. Wishy Washy are cruelty free, and all products are vegan.[£2.50/100g - Wishy Washy]
