What’s the Right Cleanser for My Skin Type?
Clean skin is the foundation of clear, healthy skin. It’s that simple. If you already wash your face at least every night and never skimp on makeup removal, you’re on your way. But how to choose the right cleanser for your skin type? We’ve broken it down with clean picks we think you’ll love as much as we do—no matter your skin type or concern.
For oily skin: LEAP Organics Face Wash
This organic face wash emulsifies into a creamy lather. Its gentle and non-drying formula is made of plant-based ingredients to leave your face clean, smooth, and refreshed. Jojoba oil delivers Vitamin B complex, Vitamin E, and antioxidants without clogging pores, while aloe vera extract soothes and hydrates the skin.
For dry skin: Josh Rosebrook Complete Moisture Cleanse
This creamy cleanser fortifies dry skin leaving it hydrated, and never, ever stripped. It features honey, which is, in fact, a potent hydrating agent, soothing aloe vera, and nourishing argan oil. Broccoli seed oil (an of-the-moment ingredient) gives this cleanser an antioxidant punch and helps protect skin from environmental damage.
For combination skin: Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash
This herbal, citrusy cleanser is refreshing and seriously cleansing, but not drying. It removes the grit, grime, and dirt you want to rinse off, and feeds the skin a clarifying and brightening cocktail of antioxidant, brightening lemon peel extract, antiseptic lavender, good-for-everyone and super-soothing aloe vera, and more.
For sensitive skin: Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser
A luxe milky cream, this cleanser is a sensorial joy to use—and even the most sensitive skin types don’t have to worry about having a reaction. Camellia seed oil—a hero ingredient in this product—works to hydrate, while shea butter nourishes and fights inflammation. Omegas 6 & 9 and Vitamin E help strengthen the skin’s barrier and work as a health booster for your complexion.
For mature skin: May Lindstrom The Pendulum Potion
This oil-based face wash softens skins and combats dullness while melting away dirt and makeup. It’s packed with healing, anti-inflammatory tamanu seed oil as well as cocoa absolute oil, which is high in fatty acids to deliver deep hydration and lots of antioxidants to the skin.
