Facial Cleansers: 8 Great Ways To Get Clean, Clear Skin

Some Of The Best Facial Cleansers

By Courtney Leiva

Although we love wearing makeup just as much as the next girl, sometimes our favorite skin perfecting products can leave our skin (and pores!) dirty and in desperate need of a good cleanse. And while the trusty soap and water routine can get some of your foundations and blushes off your face, even the smallest traces of makeup can get beneath your pores, causing unwanted breakouts and blemishes.

To easily take the reigns back on your skin, we’ve got 8 facial cleansers to ensure perfectly cleansed skin. Whether you like portable facial wipes or powerfully powdered face washes, any of these editor-picked options will definitely nip those zits and blotches right in the bud.

8 Facial Cleansers For Clean, Clear Skin

For Heavy Duty Makeup Removal…On those days when you’re rocking foundation, tinted moisturizer, or any other full-face makeup, it’s essential to have a tried and trusted makeup removing product. When we need a product sure to wipe off the day’s waterproof mascara and sweat-proof face makeup, we love Dolce & Gabbana Essential Cleansing Oil ($47), as it takes off stubborn waterproof mascara and foundation with ease.

For A Powder Cleanser…A budding trend, powdered face washes help remove any lingering dirt and impurities on your face. For a powerful cleanse, the Nude Detox Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash ($42) brings Vitamin C, rosehips, and enzymes to your skin without being harsh on your skin.

For An Everyday Cleanse…If you don’t already have a daily face cleanser you love, it’s not too late. After a long day, we love the Nuance Age Affirm Glycolic Cream Cleanser ($13.99), as it gently exfoliates the face, while replenishing your skin with essential hydration.

For Botanical Powered Removal…Removing a full face of makeup doesn’t have to require harsh chemicals. Ren Rosa Centifola Makeup Remover ($26) employs a gentle cleansing milk formula, which quickly dissolves away even the most long-lasting of products.

For Smaller Pores…A natural detoxifier, charcoal is great for acne prone skin as it gets up all the gunk beneath your pores in a pinch. To give your troubled skin some rehab, the Biore Charcoal Pore Minimizer ($9.99) deeply washes away dirt and oil-causing bacteria.

For Cleansing Milks…If you have sensitive skin, try the Aniise Cleansing Milk For Face & Eyes ($33). It won’t irritate even the most sensitive of skin thanks to the all natural formula, which uses nourishing botanicals and vitamins on your face.

For An Antioxidant Wash…Lift away dirt and makeup in minutes while washing your skin in skin-healing antioxidants with the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Antioxidant Cleansing Mousse ($34), which hydrates and rejuvenates the skin with each and every use.

For Fast Wipes…Whether you’re out in the sun or working away in the office, it never hurts to have refreshing facial wipes on hand. To easily keep sweat, dirt, and breakouts at bay, we love keeping the disposable Olay Fresh Effects Clear Skin Oil-Reducing Wet Cloths ($1.69) on hand to deep cleanse and exfoliate skin fast.
