The world of facial cleansing can seem like an absolute minefield with so much choice on the market. Which product do you choose? What’s the best face wash for normal, combination, dry or oily skin types? What if you have particularly sensitive skin? And perhaps the most confusing question of all – should you have a different morning facial routine compared to the evening? One thing is for sure: we all want to have clear, blemish-free skin that looks healthy and youthful. So here is a list of the most effective cleansers and face washes on the market.
Cetaphil Skin Cleanser
This gentle skin cleanser is fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, meaning that it doesn’t block your pores. It’s ideal for sensitive skin that likes to look refreshed and is a life-saver for ladies who experience conditions such as eczema and rosacea. Keep your pH balance in check with this extremely affordable addition to your skincare regime.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser
The Ultra Facial Cleanser is suitable for all skin types as it dissolves excess oil and dirt. This makes it perfect for a night-time cleanse after a busy day in the city. The foaming lather is created from a gentle pH-balanced cleanser which will ensure that the natural oils are not removed from your skin.
Eve Lom Cleanser
This multi-award winning ultra balm cleanser is a mainstay of the facial beauty industry. It is made up of four aromatic plant oils which result in glowing, radiant skin with a smoother, supple texture. The balm offers a deep cleanse which removes the most stubborn of dirt and also gently exfoliates and tones. This improves circulation which softens and conditions the skin.
Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm
This soft blue cleansing balm is an excellent all-rounder but is particularly beneficial for those with dry skin. The combination of cocoa butter, moringa butter and squalene, mixed with vanilla and tangerine essential oils, results in a melting cleansing balm which nourishes the epidermis. It offers complete hydration and can even be used as a mask, after which your skin will feel radiant and glowing.
Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser
This exfoliating cleanser allows you to remove impurities which are deep-set within the skin, without risk of disturbing the skin’s sensitive hydrolipidic film. This removal of dead cells leaves a thoroughly polished look which gives the illusion of having fresh ‘new’ skin. You’ll also simply love the scent of orange extract that will remain after your cleanse – heavenly!
Clinique Rinse-off Foaming Cleanser
This foaming cleanser is exceptionally kind to the skin and lasts for ages. The product contains chamomile which acts gently yet efficiently, removing make-up and debris from the skin as it cleans. The facial wash will leave your skin feeling squeaky clean after every use and can be used at any time of day, or even in the shower. The product works best in conjunction with Clinique’s 3 Step Skin Care System.
