Beauty Ed Cynthia Chew’s Top 5 Picks – Cleansers
When it comes to skincare products, I like mine to smell and feel good. It’s all about the sensations before you venture into committing yourself to a product. After all, you’ll be using them every day, why not let them pamper you? With cleansers, I’m also OK with those scent-free ones. Here are some which really blew me away with their incredible scents and textures.

Happy long weekend errbody!
Aesop Amazing Face Cleanser, $43
When I first started working as a beauty writer, this was one of the first Aesop products I’ve tried and it definitely has a special place in my heart. I was wowed away by its beautiful fragrance that is of a citrus (mandarin) and botanical mix. It is low-foaming and my face feels just right after.
Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash, $13.90
I love the soft foam which reminds me the softness of marshmallows and the way it cushions my face.
Eve Lom Cleanser, $215
This is one of those products that I’ll never forget. This iconic cleanser melts into the skin like butter and its scent is just divine. What’s more it also comes with a complimentary muslin cloth that is specially created to work with the cleanser. It offers gentle exfoliation and aids natural blood circulation. This product is also formulated without sulfates and phthalates, making it ideal for all skin types.
GlamGlow Thirstycleanse Daily Hydrating Cleanser, $65
I’m a fan of Glamglow since I first tried their Supermud mask. This cleanser is an amazing transformer - from mud to a moisture-rich foam that rinses away makeup, dirt and grease. My skin always looks and feels super clean and bright after.
Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Foaming Face Wash, $47
This is my latest fave. A lovely cleanser to start and end your day with. This gel cleanser gently foams to remove surface dirt and oil. What makes this product so authentic is that you’ll also find hand-picked calendula petals inside.
Ren Rosa Centifolia Foaming Cleanser, $48
OK I know this is the sixth cleanser but I love this cult favourite. I’m not a fan of rose scent but what’s beautiful about this cleanser is that its fragrance is so delicate and the foam leaves the skin so fresh after washing.
