Lou's Reviews || Clean Skin 5 in 1 Water | ThisWorks

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

It was my birthday in April (mini woop) and one of my lovely chums, Fleur, very kindly gave me a This Works 5 in 1 Water Cleanser  as part of my present. She also bought me a wallet, a cute key chain and threw me a little party complete with champagne and cake- she's far too generous! (If you did want to see some snaps from that night, Zoe did this blog post on it).


I've never used this sort of cleanser before as I have tended to lean toward creams, balms and washes that lather, so I was pretty interested to see if this would do the job.

To use it all you have to do is squib (yep, squib) a generous amount of product onto a cotton wool pad, gently swipe round your face and voila, yukkies removed and your skin feels beautiful.



I would use 2 or 3 of these circular pads or 1 of my big square ones (featured in a haul video a while back). I like to take my time and ensure I look after every part of my face and that I'm not just harshly rubbing in a haphazard manner. I think if you are going to have a luxury product, you may as well take your time and enjoy the experience.


I have been surprised and pleased at how well this 5 in 1 cleansing water has worked. It boasts soluble olive oil to gently remove impurities and unclog pores (something I really do feel it has done, I just feel so much clearer), almond oil to remove makeup, wild water mint to cool the skin, glycolic acid to balance ph levels and rosewater to help shed skin cells and increase elasticity.

Normally I'm pretty sceptical of these wonder products and think them too good to be true, but I really have been thrilled with this. After I use it, I feel like all the dirt, makeup and pollution in my skin has been drawn away and my skin is just my skin. Not my skin plus residue or my skin plus a layer of 'day', if that makes sense!

I have also noticed that after using this, moisturiser sinks in like a dream. It literally just vanishes into my face leaving me feeling soft and supple and glowy. What more could you want?

I think the packaging is pleasing (although not travel friendly unless you have an enormous washbag), the smell is non existent (perfect for fussy folk like me), the price tag high (£21) but reasonable for a luxury cleanser (and a little goes a long way) and the product actually does all the things it promotes.

One downfall that I will just throw in was that I wasn't much match for my heavy eyemakeup (liquid eyeliner/85 layers of mascara). I'm not too sad about this because I never think any product will do this amazingly well (except Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish) and am happy to use this purely as a face/skin product.

All in all, hurrah huzzah for This Works Clean Skin 5 in 1 Water. You can find this in a array of places like Boots or online retailers and I have linked it above, but do feel free to do your research and use good old google. 

Have you tried this or any other 'water' cleaners? What did you think? Is £21 too steep for a cleanser?

Toodlepip!

  2. Sounds flabby but I can't afford the £21 price tag but it's on my 'to try' list x

  3. I haven't tried this, and probably won't as I think as you said yourself 21.00 is a LOT to spend on a cleanser. I recently tried the No 7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser and found it so good that I think I'm going to incorporate it into my every day skincare routine instead of just using it on bath nights xx

  5. I don't think 21 is too much for a cleanser if it works well, I'm loving my sonicleanse so anything that works well with that is great! I've never tried any This Works products though, must have a look soon! Hannah xxx

  7. I have always spent alot on toners and stuck to a 2.50 cream makeup remover.did you use a toner with this as well or was the lotion enough? In two minds to give it a go as that is a heavy pricetag! xxxx

  8. I'd love to try this cleanser as it does look really good but the high price tag puts me off! I'm using the Caudalie Beauty Water at the moment 400ml for £14! Bargain! x

  9. This sounds fab! I think I want to get face wipes out of my routine and start using something like this, so pricey though! Thanks for this post :) xx

  12. Sounds pretty swish to me. £21 is a lot, but at the end of the day if it gets the job done well it's a £21 well spent.
    I shall put it on my list of things to pick up ^_^ x

  13. This sounds great, but the number 7 beautiful skin cleansing balm is great, and extremely cheap with the £5 voucher! ( it works out about £3) i love your blog louise! You are a massive inspiration to me as a beauty blogger and youtuber and you also come across as a fantastic mother! You also seem like a happy jolly lady and I think the world needs more jolly happy ladies like you.

  14. I've never tried cleansers before, I might get myself the No7 cleanser but now I'm re thinking and I might get this one! I don't think £21 is to steep for a cleanser being as you always get what you pay for :) x

  21. I've heard so many good things about this cleanser but at £21 I am very hesitant about buying it!

  22. This sounds really great, if it does all it's meant to and has good results then I guess it's worth the money!

  23. I have never heatd of this cleanser, but it looks really good :) £21 is a lot of money to spend, but I suppose it is worth it for a good product! I'd like to give it a try :)

  29. I bought this on BeautyBay whilst it was discounted at £16 and am waiting for my Bioderma to finish so that I can try it out! For heavy eye makeup, you might want to tryout the Bioderma Cleanser as it does wonders :) The thing about cleansing waters is that you do need to wait half a second or so before swiping off the mascara...

  31. I recently bought this cleanser after seeing a review of it on YouTube and it is amazing but I don't know if I would say it was worth £21. I bought it from www.beautyexpert.co.uk and you can use your Tesco Clubcard vouchers on it and get 2x the value so makes it much more affordable!
