How To Pick The Right Cleanser For Your Skin Type

The Evolution of Glass Skin: What is it and How Do We Achieve It

We guide you through the top cleansers for your skin type, whether you have oily, combination, sensitive or dry skin.

The Carousel - Neutrogena Judro Boost Foaming Cleanser

Dry skin

Creamy cleansers aren’t the only thing that those with dry skin can use – a moisturising foaming cleanser can also help. Made with humectants like glycerin, that absorbs moisture from the environment and forms a film on the skin, as well as olive leaf extract, this powerful foaming cleanser will help keep skin moisturised. Try Neutrogena Hydro Boost Moisturising Foaming Cleanser, $14.99

The Carousel - Avene Cleansing Milk

Sensitive skin

You can’t go past Avene if you’ve got sensitive skin. Formulated with their signature thermal spring water that’s amazing at soothing skin, this cleansing milk also works well to calm inflammation and even out skin tone. To use, pop a small amount onto a cotton pad to spread around the face, then massage it into the skin with your fingers. You won’t even need water to remove the product – simply use a clean cotton pad to gently wipe it all off. Try Avene Anti-Rougeurs Dermo Cleansing Milk, $35.95

The Carousel - Rosehip Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser

Combination skin

Not quite oily and not quite dry – this skin type is notorious for oily spots across the T-zone or forehead. Surprisingly, a soap-free cleanser made with a touch of oil can actually be the solution for this. Enter Rosehip by Essano’s Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser, which contains rosehip oil to nourish the skin’s layers, and aloe vera to lightly hydrate at the same time. It’s a winner in our eyes. Try Rosehip by Essano Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser, $14.99

The Carousel - Neutrogena Deep Clean Revitalising Foam Cleanser

Oily skin

Alpha hydroxy acid is a key ingredient that those with oily skin should look out for, as it works wonders on acne-prone complexions without being too harsh. Because it is a chemical exfoliant that’s really great at shedding dead skin cells and clearing gunk out of pores, you’ll notice smoother, clearer-looking skin in no time. Try Neutogena Deep Clean Revitalising Pink Grapefruit Foam Cleanser, $13.99
