You may think that washing your face is a pretty basic beauty chore, but that couldn’t be further from the truth, HollywoodLifers! When it comes to face washes, there are so many options to choose from! Allow us to make finding a favorite easier with our top face wash picks.
As we all know, the first step to beautiful, glowing skin starts with removing your makeup every night! But if you’ve been washing your face with whatever bar soap you happen to find lying around your sink — stop right now! We’ll show you the best cleansers for sensitive skin, a heavy-duty clean, and those of us who don’t have any time to spare. Check out the gallery for all of our favorites.
Face Wash — Best Makeup Removers
We know that, ideally, we should always be thoroughly cleansing our skin and applying various serums, toners, and creams. But some nights, we’re just tired. On those nights when you can barely change into your pajamas — let alone wash your face for two whole minutes — reach for makeup remover wipes to ensure that you aren’t going to bed with a face full of makeup. We’re big fans of First Aid Beauty Gentle Cleansing Wipes for removing our layers of foundation and concealer. If you’re wearing some intense eye makeup, try Simple Eye Make-Up Remover which removes smokey eyes in a snap, yet is gentle enough to use with our contacts in.
For Deep Cleaning
Some days, though, you just feel like you need to really deep clean your skin. Maybe you’re like us — taking the subway in the dead of summer and feeling totally grimy. Or, maybe you’ve been burning the midnight oil at work and feel like your skin is suddenly dull and lifeless. On these occasions, we absolutely love using our Clarisonic Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head and Cleanser. The Clarisonic Brush Head oscillates to remove dead skin and provide a deep clean, while the Deep Pore Cleanser uses a special salicylic acid formulation to clear out pores. We also recommend trying Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, which is strong enough to both remove our makeup and cleanse our skin, yet gentle enough to not strip our face of its essential oils.
Sensitive Skin Savers
While we love every cleanser we’ve listed so far, we know that those of you with sensitive skin have to be very choosy about what you buy. So allow us to recommend Alba Daily Detox Foaming Cleanser. Since it’s oil free, non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic, it’s perfect for those of you looking to clear out your pores without irritating them. We also love Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser which is specially formulated for use by those suffering from acne, eczema, rosacea and atopic dermatitis. It’s sure to cleanse skin gently without any irritation.
