    I love my dermologica Medibac wash which makes my skin feel so clean and soft and keeps my adult acne at bay!

    I’m wary of trying new cleansers because of an incident a few years ago so the one that I’ve never had any trouble with is St Ives Apricot Scrub. It leaves my skin soft and doesn’t break me out.

    i use a homemade ‘clarifying cleansing oil’, using apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil and some essential oils: lavender, rosemary and cypress. it’s gentle, great for removing all makeup and the essential oils are antiseptic as well. since i started using this 3 years ago, i have seen a massive improvement in my skin (an so have others, which is a real bonus!)…i was always told by cosmeticians(?) that my skin was oily and i should use foaming cleaners…but that turned out to be completely false and was ruining my skin big-time!

    I must say I love Neutrogena ‘deep clean’ cleansing cream or Netrogena facial cleanser. I hate using anything specifically made for acne (if is says it on the packaging). They tend to dry my skin extremely and cause me to become flakey. I also love it because its cheap and I can find it at almost any store.

  8. HijabiApprentice

    I like Shiseido White Lucent or Dermalogica Dermal Clay Cleanser if I’m having skin issues.

    Clean & Clear Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser, it’s so refreshing for combination skin, especially in the summer, when it’s hot!

    Philosophy’s On a Clear Day for night & Purity for the morning. Love all skincare that’s by Philosophy!

    My favorite is Cetaphil. Its a cheap drugstore brand but it works great! Help keep my sensitive breakout prone skin under control. I can even wash my eye makeup off without irritation.

    Bar none best facial cleanser I’ve used is BeautiControl’s Skinlogics Foaming Facial Cleanser..only $16.50 and lasts months!

    Philosophy Purity Made Simple.

  14. Hanna

    I use these dual exfoliating/cleanser pads from Avon. The exfoliating side is the most gentle types out there and the cleanser side almost feels like it moisturizes my skin.

  15. CLINIQUE!! It’s amazing!

  16. Brittany

  17. Cindy S

    i’ve tried every possible cleanser there is out there both drug store and higher end brand, and the two that i use on a regular basis that work for me are dove foaming cleanser for sensitive skin and mac cleanse off oil

  18. Shannon

    Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream – doesn’t have that fake, super minty, clean feel that most chemical filled cleansers have and it’s all natural and makes your skin look really nice and feel clean.

  22. Jill
