Types of Face Cleansers
There are different types and textures of face washes available in the market and you can pick one based on your skin type and needs. Here’s a lowdown of all the types of cleansers:
1. Gel Cleansers
These are clear and have a gel-like texture. Gel cleansers are typically designed to deep cleanse and are effective at removing excess oil, killing acne-causing bacteria, and decongesting clogged pores. This is the best face wash for women with acne-prone or oily skin.
2. Cream Cleansers
These are cleansers with a lush and creamy consistency. Cream cleansers are formulated to be gentler on your skin and are super hydrating. These are one of the best types of face wash for glowing skin as they don’t strip it of its natural oils. They are best suited for those with dry or sensitive skin. Crème-Mousse Confort Gentle Cleanser by Lancôme is a creamy foaming facial cleanser that is gentle on the skin.
3. Foam Cleansers
Typically, a foam cleanser or foaming face wash has attributes of both gel and cream cleansers. They are either cream or gel-based which when pumped out, transform into a luxe, foamy lather and are as effective as gel cleansers. Foaming face washes are great for combination skin types. Try Lancôme’s Mousse Eclat Hydrating Foam Cleanser which exfoliates and gently cleanses makeup and impurities.
4. Oil Cleansers
You may wonder whether having oil on your face to cleanse it is a good idea but trust the process. Oil cleansers, also known as makeup cleansers, are meant to remove water-proof makeup and dirt on the skin without disrupting the skin barrier. Many use oil cleansers as the first step in a double cleanse and follow it up with either a cream or foam cleanser.
Primary ingredients in Cleansers
When buying a face cleanser, you want to make sure that you’re buying the best facial cleanser for you. Which is why it is important that you check the primary ingredients in cleansers.
