[Prioradrelationships/sample/ad] A couple of weeks ago I featured sponsored content with Vita-C Glycolic Brightening Serum (still using it!) with this cleanser as a full size free gift but focused solely on the serum so the cleanser didn’t really get the attention it deserved. I’m really a convert to Vitamin C skin care as a result of using the serum for over 2 months but far more fickle when it comes to cleansing. I jump about from micellars for my ‘TV cleanse’ (when I really can’t be bothered to rise from the sofa and do the routine) and like to use Origins Mega Mushroom for that, to balms in the bath (Emma Hardie) and rinse offs in the morning shower – which is where Essential C Cleanser comes in.

I’m really not as strict on cleansing as some – I love the idea of a double cleanse and did it for a while but laziness got the better of me in the end. But, I do like to take the grime and sweat off as well as making sure any SPF is fully gone before applying anything else. Essential-C is great for a quick vitamin infused whip-off – actually any time of day, but I tend to use it in the mornings because of the orangey smell (I know the packaging is orange coloured but I’d love to see actual oranges on the exterior). It’s completely clear – doesn’t go milky – in a sort of gel like texture that leaves skin completely freshened, soft and clean. If you’re sporty, it’s perfect because it’s got an energetic vibrancy to it – I usually do half an hour’s yoga as soon as I get up (how long that will last after we are back to normal I can’t say!) and it seems to round that off nicely in the shower. It’s £32 HERE (but the serum code where you get the cleanser free with serum purchase is live again til over the weekend – if you want that option, use JANEVITAC HERE).
