In a world where the best of cleansers could set you back a juicy $90, it’s a relief to my credit card to see some frugal options. A couple of these beauty finds have secured a permanent spot in my routine and I couldn’t be happier that they’re less than $20.

{Garnier vs L’oreal}

Both brands released a cleansing oil that’s almost identical in texture but my vote goes to Garnier’s Clean Nourishing Cleansing oil. An ever so slightly softer touch to the skin with a soft scent. Perfect for my dry skin, I’m guessing the Jojoba and Macadamia oils have something to do with it.

Garnier Nourish Cleansing Oil – $11.99

L’Oreal Sensational Cleansing Oil – $12.99

I don’t know but I love this product so much that I’m rationing it despite it’s steal of a price tag at $14.99. This beauty literally melts away my makeup without having to rub at my eyes and the delicate scent isn’t  overbearing in the slightest.

If you checked out any of the other blogs you’ll see this being compared to the Bioderma offering quite a bit but I found that product to sting despite it’s sensitive skin claims. Without a doubt I’ll be buying this beauty over and over again.

I can’t even begin to stress how much this Olay collection has impressed me. The wipes just rock my world. One side is soft to gently wipe away the makeup on my skin, the other is rough and works to exfoliate those areas that need a deeper clean.

Perfect for day or night use but I prefer using these in the morning for a wake-up call.

I simply had to mention the Bright on Schedule roller eye cream because I’ve been using it everyday since I got it. The cooling applicator smooths on a product that works in conjunction to instantly de-puff my tired eyes. A major winner of a product!

As a gal that suffers with dry skin (thanks Canadian winter), Garnier, yet again wins the battle for best drugstore cleanser. The Smoothing Cream Cleanser feels like butter and works that way too to wash away the day’s look.

L’Oreal’s Purifying Foaming Cleanser is fab if your skin is leans towards the oilier side.

    Love love loooove the Olay wipes which was a surprise for me as well since I never paid much attention to them. I also have the “exfoliating” version which I’m not a huge fan of but the original rocks.

    I’m so glad that the L’Oreal micellar water has finally landed in Canada!

      Tell me about it! I’m treating it like liquid gold though I’m not sure why when it’s so well priced!

    I’ve tried the Olay Fresh Effects wipes and I thought they were really nice, except for some reason the pack was getting dryer by the minute. You really got me curious about the Garnier Cleansing Oil!

      Oh that’s so odd! I’m down to the last couple of wipes and they’re still great! Perhaps the place they were stored was a little too warm? Sorry to hear yours dried out!

      I love cleansing oils for tough makeup that I don’t want to rub hard on. I find that when I use regular face wash my eyes really sting and go red but the oil is so gentle.

      Thanks for checking in Marianna!
