We can't even think about it.
Washing your face is simply non-negotiable. If you want good, gorgeous, glowing skin, you've got to give yourself a good cleanse. It's just the way it is. At the end of the day, remove your makeup and give your face a lovely, nurturing massage with some of the following products. If you're anything like us, you'll wonder what the heck you were doing with your time before.
1. May Lindstrom The Honey Mud Gentle Cleansing Silk
This cleanser is luxury in a jar. Its texture is uniquely its own. It has raw honey and white halloysite clay, so it literally feels like a silky mud. If your skin is feeling a little bit unbalanced or dry and congested, this is a wonderful selection for you. It will leave your skin feeling clean and coddled. Props to May Lindstrom because you can also use this as a mask.
2. Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser
Be still my beating heart. Arguably my favorite cleanser of all time, it unclogs pores and eliminates buildup. It's a refreshing deep clean and so cooling and invigorating. I pull it out when I have PMS face year-round, and but use it morning and night during the summer. It also smells amazing, so there's that.
3. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser
This is a jumbo size of the cult classic and it comes with a pump. It's a good thing it does, too. Believe me when I say you're going to want to slather your face in this face wash. It's packed with probiotics and peptides, so you'll look so radiant, but its not heavy.
4. Shiseido IBUKI Gentle Cleanser
My editor, Victoria, is currently loving this one. V, doesn't put up with nonsensical faff. She wants to wash her face and have the cleanser work, so if she likes this, it's not going to disappoint.
5. No.7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil
If you're looking for budget cleansing oil that gets everything off without any fuss, this is a wonderful bet. It's not fancy, but it's lighweight and feels luxurious even though it won't make you unable to afford your rent.
6. The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
This cleansing balm is so underrated—if you have sensitive skin and wear contact lenses, especially. It is super effective at melting away your makeup, but it also leaves your skin feeling super pampered and treated. Your face will be the texture of a rose petal. What's not to love?
