Beauty Guide: Top Brightening Cleansers

As the weather begins to draw in, it's not only your style which you'll need to update but you'll also need some help with your beauty regime.  Below you will find my top picks for a Brightening Cleanser.

1. SHU UEMURA Brightening Cleansing Oil

Shu Uemura was a brand created by Mr. Uemura.  Uemura worked as a Make-up Artist in 1950's Hollywood and gained make-up secrets during that time to create a line of powerful make-up and skin products. The secret to this cleansing oil is it's effects on brightening and smoothing the skin as well as it's power to remove waterproof mascara and other long lasting make-up products.  

SHU UEMURA Brightening Cleansing Oil £30 from Space.NK
This product left my skin feeling a lot clearer and smoother and worked well on removing waterproof based products. I'd highly recommend it as not only is it an all round good cleanser for removing make-up but it's brightening properties leave your skin feeling more luminous and smoother. 

2. CHANEL LE BLANC Fresh Brightening Foam Cleanser 

The LE BLANC range of products from Chanel use the ancient Eastern philosophy coupled with Western Science to create an advanced line of skin brightening products. More specifically the Fresh Brightening Foam Cleanser uses an advanced pearl protein and licorice extracts to give the skin renewed softness and luminosity.

CHANEL LE BLANC Fresh Brightening Foam Cleanser £38.36 from Nordstrom
After using this product for only a couple of days I noticed the most difference when compared with numerous products on the market. My skin almost immediately was left clearer and felt like a blank canvas. However wasn't great for removing waterproof or more longer lasting products. 

3. Bliss triple oxygen instant energising cleansing foam

This is to be used as part of your daily cleansing routine and will leave your skin looking bright and feeling revitalised. Bliss brought this product to the public after being tried and tested in their spa's. More specifically the liquid-to-foam formula is the first to deliver oxygen along with a super-powered form of vitamin C, which will leave your skin feeling hydrated with washing away make-up and impurities.

In my opinion comes in cheaper than a lot of brightening cleansers on the market and is great for just brightening and energising the skin, however it's not great for removing waterproof or more longer lasting make-up.
