    “In my job, I often experiment with new skincare bits – some of which can leave my skin slightly irritated,” explains Hanna Ibraheem, senior beauty writer. “But this cleanser has been the perfect option for keeping it soothed. Made up of oat kernel oil and oat powder, it’s gentle but manages to leave my skin feeling clean and fresh.”

    Better yet, this cleanser is a multi-tasker. “You can massage it onto damp skin like a normal cleanser or, if your skin is feeling particularly aggravated, leave it on for 10 minutes for a quick, nourishing face mask.”
