There are so many face wash and cleanser products out there that it is hard to know which ones to choose for your particular type of skin. The following face washes are the best on the market for different kinds of skin. Whether your skin is considered normal, oily, dry, or acne prone there is a cleaner for you.
A great all purpose face wash for normal skin types is Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser. It retails for about $20 and works to remove both makeup and dirt from the skin. Those who purchase it on sites such as Drugstore.com and Totalbeauty.com rated it very highly and most said it did not dry out their skin although some with more sensitive skin claimed it was too harsh over a longer period of use.
For those with sensitive skin, look for face washes that do not contain harsh ingredients like alcohol, found in many cleansers. Cleansers that contain glycerin in their ingredients are usually good for sensitive skin types. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser has been around for many years and works well on all skins types, especially the most sensitive because of its gentle and creamy formula.
There are an abundance of face washes for acne prone skin. Some that get consistently high ratings are Basis Cleaner Clean Face Wash and Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. The Basis cleanser does not dry out skin as much as other acne fighting products but still leaves it clean. Neutrogena's cleanser works well because it contains a high level of salicylic acid, commonly used in most acne products. To counter the harsh nature of salicylic acid, this cleanser also contains aloe and chamomile to help soothe the skin.
