Empty Cleansers

1. Somme Institute nourishing cleanser $40
I have mentioned Somme Institute before and I really enjoy their line. I also mentioned here about how to look out for discounts and free gifts with purchase. If you are lucky you can score a free moisturizer or cleanser. This cleanser is very light and silky feeling, and does not leave your skin feeling dry or stripped. I most often used it as a daytime cleanser or as a second cleanser after make up removal. It didn't remove stubborn mascara very well. All in all, I can highly recommend the Somme Institute brand for achieving healthy looking and feeling skin. And if you are looking for a gentle daytime cleanser, this one is particularly luxurious.

2. Shu Uemura pore clarifying cleansing oil $31
Shu Uemura has one of the best, if not the best, lines of cleansing oil in the world. (My other favorite is the Shiseido tiss off cleansing oil in the green bottle.) I can't say enough good things about Shu Uemura cleansing oil. They remove makeup, don't leave your skin feeling greasy, and don't make your skin more oily. Side note: I have used the DHC cleansing oil and a Kose one before, and they can make your eyes feel "cloudy.  I guess a better way to put it is that when you start rinsing the oil with water it turns milky, which then clouds your vision a little bit.  Those two are fine alternatives, but the Shu Uemura has a much cleaner application.
