These Cleansers Take Everything Off... Literally Everything
I'm a huge fan of the double cleanse method. In fact, I swear by it. But some days, you can't be bothered and you just want to get the job done. And when you do, you want a cleanser that will do the darn thing, in the words of the immortal genius that is Kevin G. These are our favorite no-fail cleansers that treat your face with the love it deserves and gets every stitch of the day off. *touchdown hands emoji*
Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cleanser
I was super excited for this cleanser to be released, and it did not disappoint. Not only is it super gentle, and therefore good for any skin type, but it is also just a heavenly experience. The key with this cleanser is to massage it on to your dry face and then wipe it off with a damp towel. The manuka honey and bevy of other coddling ingredients will soothe any irritation, and your skin will look fresh and new.
Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel
This gel-oil hybrid breaks apart makeup like a charm. It's super light, so if you're not down with heavy textures, you'll like it. But even if you do love a creamy cleanser, you'll find this super moisturizing and conditioning. Ugh, I swoon thinking about it.
Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm
Honestly, the treatment factor of this cleanser makes me favor it as a second cleanse (those ingredients are too good to waste on makeup removal), but it will do the job in one cleanse regardless. It's so luxuriously comfortable and feels super indulgent— the perfect treat after a long day. Plus, the vitamin C is going keep things bright and plump. So basically, WORTH IT.
Zelens Z Pure Liquid Cleansing Balm
Honest to goodness, this cleanser makes me excited to wash my face. I will look for excuses to use it. Yeah, that's how much I love it. You massage it onto your face and it's emollient enough to really get your circulation going. AKA... glow, baby, glow. But the second water is introduced into the equation, it melts into a luxurious milk that rinses away super easily.
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk
If you want a quick cleanse that won't leave you stripped but will get the job done, this cleanser will never fail you. There's no other way to say it than it does exactly what it claims on the label: it takes the day off!
Avalon Organics CoQ10 Facial Cleansing Milk
If you want an effective cleanser that is organic, vegan, biodegradable, and GMO free, but still effective, then this is for you. It's not going to strip your skin, but also has rosehip oil to prevent and treat signs of aging. It feels silky on your skin and takes of all that leftover mascara. What more could one want?
