This Cleanser Has Over 300 5-Star Reviews on Mecca Cosmetica
There's something to be said for a good review. We almost always take our cues from friends when it comes to the best cafe, a new wine bar, or the totally fabulous facialist that's just up the road. There's comfort in knowing that others have already given something the thumbs up before you venture into the unknown.
The same goes for skincare. While there are many different skin types and subsequent skin issues, when something goes great guns across the board, you can pretty much guarantee it's a winner. After all, there truly is safety in numbers. Case in point: the reviews page of beauty retailer Mecca Cosmetica is exploding with gleaming ratings for one particular product, and if the reviews are anything to go by, we think we may have found your new favourite must-have.

There's also another way to guarantee an order well placed: when the words 'cult' and 'product' appear anywhere within the same sentence. Eve Lom's Cleanser is one such product and it didn't get that association for nothing. The drawcard of this über-popular product is its ability to simultaneously cleanse, tone and moisturise: it aims to both clean and nourish the skin with ingredients like chamomile for softening and clove oil for deep cleansing. And the reviews say it leaves the skin feeling super soft. A luxurious 3-in-1 product? It's got our vote. Also, just a side note: British Vogue previously described it as "probably the best cleanser in the world". So, yep, there's also that.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser ($18)
If the price per ml ratio has you a little nervous about taking the plunge with Eva Lom, second on Mecca's list of top-rated cleansers is this purse-friendly number. The non-drying formula is a hit with reviewers, with over 100 people leaving 5-star reviews. They wax lyrical about its ability to rid your face of even the heaviest makeup with just a teeny amount. A cleanser that doesn't leave your visage with that horrible tight feeling after washing? Count us in.
