Published 03/02/2011 | 15:04
Rub-a-dub-dub, it's time for a scrub. This week we at Independent Woman have been working up a lather as we scrubbed and slathered ourselves in the most purifing cleansers we could find.
Here are four of the best:
Lavender Gentle Cleanser by Cowshed
Sensitive souls keen to make skin glow need look no further than the Lavender Gentle Cleanser by Cowshed. Enriched with lavender oil to purify, balance and smooth the skin, this gentle cream cleanser leaves everything it touches feeling squeaky clean and ready to go. Naturally scented with lemongrass and sage, the fabulous fragrance doesn't come at a cost of stripping or drying out skin.
Available from cowshedonline.com, priced at £18.
Dermalogica Ultra Calming cleanser
If your skin tends to get a bit prickly with your present cleanser, Dermalogicas Ultra Calming Cleanser might just be the the thing for a little TLC. Designed to soothe hypersensitive skin this fragrance free cleanser shields skin from environmental damage while it calms those qualms with echinacea and raspberry. Make-up melts away, clogged pores are cleansed and skin is left looking as bright as the proverbial button - what's not to like!

Lancome's Galateis Douceur
Cutting through the sludge can be a thankless task - not so with Lancome's Galateis Douceur.

Ren Purity Cleansing Balm
Natural beauties keen to shun the nasties will come up smelling of roses with Ren's Purity Cleansing Balm.
