Annette’s Current Cleansing Routine!

I was thinking about all the products that I’m using at the moment, so thought I’d do a little post so everyone can check out what my current faves are!

Dermalogica Pre Cleanse – $65.50

Rubbing this peculiar oil type liquid over my face prior to jumping in the shower, is reported to be good for dissolving dirt, makeup and helping shift blackheads. The interesting part, is that when you go to wash it off, the oil magically turns into a milky emulsion and leaves no trace of oil AT ALL. This is a fantastic first step to removing makeup, and also good for days when you’ve been sweating up a storm and need some extra power in your cleansing routine.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant $83.50

Ah, hello hero product! I previously talked about Daily Microfoliant here, but this powdery dream has continued to keep a highly-coveted spot in my bathroom. If you can I’d suggest trying to source a sample of this stuff, it smooths out any bumps on my skin with ease and I find it helpful with minimising breakouts. I can definitely tell when I’ve not been using it, as my skin tend to break out a littler more (AKA, right now! Need to get back into it with regularity!)

Ren Rose Wash – $46

This cleanser is so beautifully rosy scented, that it just feels like you’re doing something good for your skin when you use it. For a gel cleanser it’s pretty impressive, as it doesn’t dry out my skin. Enjoying this for those two reasons… I use it with:

Clarisonic Mia – $149

I’m not sure what I did before this came along. When I use it, my skin congestion, tone and brightness is about 75% better. No word of a lie! At $149 it’s a bit of an investment, but oh-so-worth it. If you’re in Perth you can head down to Bella Hart in Subiaco for a free instore trial (very handy).

Any of these look good to you?

Be well,



  1. Oh Annette Ive been dying to try the Clarisonic, glad to here its worth the $$!
    Ren Rose Wash sounds lovely, but anything with rose in it is good in my books xx

    I love the REN rose wash – I’ve just finished my bottle and switching to Sodashi for a bit but if it doesn’t work out then I will go back to REN, sounds a bit like a relationship with my cleansers.

  3. Alex says:

    I have the Clarisonic but it isn’t doing anything great for me 🙁 I’m going to have to change the products I use it with because the MD Skincare line might be a bit too abrasive!

    Will need to check our Dermalogica 🙂

    Alexis: You should head down to Bella Hart and test it out! I think David Jones has them too but I’m not sure if they have testers available? They may though 🙂

    Love the Ren rose wash & it’s also pretty natural – which is a bonus!

    Kelly – Oooh I didn’t know that was the product you were using. Which Sodashi cleanser have you got now?!?!! Did you pick it up at #POBM or somewhere else?

    Alex: That’s such a shame!!!! How often are you using it? What results were you hoping for? I use a fairly gentle cleanser with mine, and make sure not to use it on any active spots in case they spread. I try not to exfoliate on the days I use the Clarisonic, but when I don’t use it I use the Microfoliant 🙂 xx

    I picked it up from Peachy Clean! I’ve used REN for ages, I thought I told you about it?! It’s my 3rd bottle! The Sodashi clay lime cleanser smells like lollies on my face and it feels like a much deeper clean than the REN, though I am still testing it to see what kind of results I get!

  6. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Yeah I knew about Ren but I didn’t know which prod you were using 🙂

    Yummm I’ve used the lime cleanser before, love it too x
