Seven Top Face Washes For Every Skin Type
No two faces are alike, and when it comes to cleansers, every face has its own one-of-a-kind needs. Think about it — you wash your face every day, so the cleanser you choose to use is just as important to your complexion as your daily moisturizer. Whether you’re looking to fight acne or the first signs of aging, we’ve curated some of our favorite face washes that are perfectly tailored to seven unique skin situations.
1. Best for All Skin Types
With just a hint of pH balanced AHA exfoliation, Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash offers an exhilarating cleanse that brightens your skin — and your mood! When you breathe in its forest-fragranced fusion of fresh cedar, black spruce, vetiver, lavender, and citrus, this sulfate-free lathering cleanser, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a woodland paradise. The antioxidant-rich, non-drying, vegan and cruelty-free formula is perfectly suitable for oily, normal, and dry skin types.
2. Best for Sensitive Skin
Gentle cleansing just got easier with Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash. This sulfate-free cleanser harnesses the soothing powers of toning coconut water, smoothing papaya, and skin-softening sea minerals to remove toxins without stripping your skin of its delicate moisture barrier. Non-abrasive algae extract gently exfoliates without causing irritation. This cruelty-free, 100% vegan formula is also made without mineral oil, triclosan, phthalates or parabens.
3. Best 3-in-One
An award-winning cult favorite, Consonant Skincare Natural Foaming Face Wash replaces your cleanser, makeup remover, and toner by combining all three in one indispensable pH-balanced product. Less packaging, less waste, less clutter — now that’s beautiful! This all-natural multitasker contains skin-healing tamanu oil, soothing aloe leaf juice, and blemish-controlling tea tree oil to even out your skin tone.
4. Best for Acne-prone Skin
Harness the natural blemish-fighting, skin-brightening power of Vitamin C with Ofra Cosmetics Foaming Vitamin C Cleanser. This calming face wash curbs excess oil secretion as it washes away all traces of dirt, makeup, and other impurities. The result? Clean skin that feels as fresh and purified as it looks.
5. Best Anti-aging
Fermented tea and the flower power of rose give Pacifica Beauty Rose Kombucha Flower Powered Face Wash its age-defying prowess. This 100% vegan, antioxidant-rich foaming formula sweeps away makeup and pollution build-up to reveal glowing skin at any age.
6. Best for Stressed Skin
Stressed-out skin will delight in Pacifica Beauty Coconut Milk Cream to Foam Face Wash, which feels (and smells) as dreamy as a day at the beach. This skin-loving vegan formula, which is infused with the warm tropical aromas of coconut and vanilla, carefully cleanses away contaminants that throw your skin off balance.
7. Best Exfoliating
With its health-boosting blend of organic matcha green tea, zesty lemongrass, and sugar crystals, Teami Blends Green Tea Facial Scrub transforms into a creamy lather to gently polish away dulling debris without aggravating the delicate skin on your face. This versatile scrub can also be used in place of your daily makeup remover and as a body polish in your shower. Best of all, it’s vegan, cruelty-free, and sustainably handcrafted in small batches.
