If we're being real, we'll all admit that we put our skin, in particularly, our faces, through a lot! Oh! Let me count the ways! Everything from putting dirty iPhone screens to our ears or pimple-popping (yes, I went there!), there is more than enough reason to cleanse, exfoliate and all that good stuff to help clear our skin.
In my experience and through much trial and error, I've finally discovered that not all face washes are the same! Some cleansers strip the skin or irritate it beyond belief, but over the years, I've found a few cleansers that I love to keep on hand. Here are my top three face washes and cleansers. 
YES TO BLUEBERRIES Smoothing Daily Cleanser
This cleanser is absolutely luscious! When applied to the skin, it is a milky consistency and when I rinse it off, my skin feels super soft and moisturized. It doesn't smell like blueberries or like anything sweet for that matter but the smell is pleasant. Though I haven't noticed it clear up my skin, it does amazing job of brightening and hydrating!

GARNIER® CLEAN+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub For Oily Skin
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE!!! I love the little beads that exfoliate and the formulation has proven to really clear up my skin. I've noticed that my skin is much brighter and incredibly fresh after every use.

WARNING: This cleanser is strong and really good at what it's supposed to do: cleanse! I did notice that after about a week of using it, the skin around my eyelids started peeling. Even with my sensitive skin, I was able to combat the dryness with moisturizing after every use. My skin is used to it and doesn't dry out anymore.

This cleanser boasts some pretty serious claims! When I received mine in the mail, I read about it's cruelty-free formula that excludes ingredients like alcohol, parabens and sulfates, making it super safe for all skin types. Instead of all of those chemicals, this cleanser is made with rose hip oil, rich ocean minerals & vitamin e that are supposed to make your skin glow!

I've been using this cleanser for a while now and honestly notice a bit if vibrancy and glow to my skin after I use it! Even though it says it doesn't have any harsh chemicals, I find that it does smell a little synthetic... Maybe it's the oils or the vitamins in it?

What are your favorite cleansers? Do you have an established skin care routine? I'd love to hear about it!

  1. Okay, so I'm about to need some new cleansers, so this post came right in time! I'm pretty curious about the OZ one, but all of these look amazing! I use Clinique's face wash, and it is lovely. It never irritates my skins and is a good cleaning agent. I also tried formula 10.0.6's soap and mud mask and enjoy both of them. They smell great and I've noticed more of a glow to my skin after using them, although maybe it's just me. (Actually, I'm wearing the mud mask as I type this comment! It immediately reduces the blackheads on my face and works pretty well!)

    Great post as always!

  2. Thank you for posting this! I'll have to look into some of these. Have you already written a post about some of your non favorite cleansers and face washes?
