Finding the perfect cleanser can be so difficult.
A good cleanser is the corner-stone of an effective skincare routine. You need something that’s going to remove makeup and dirt, but also not strip the skin. Add in different types of skin and suddenly its a mind-field trying to find the perfect cleanser.
To cut through the confusion we’ve rounded up the best cleansers for all skin types that have been tried and tested by missy.ie. And the good news is they’re super affordable!
PreProbiotic Cleanse is a nourishing, hydrating cleanser that suits all skin types. Prebiotics, probiotics and polyhydroxy acid work to protect and feed the skin’s barrier to keep skin happy, healthy and hydrated. Unlike some cleansers, PrePro is non-stripping and actually gives back to the skin, rather than leaving you high and dry.
This is also Cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and fragrance-free.
You’ve probably seen this a ton on highly-styled bathroom shelfs on Instagram. Yes, it looks great, but it’s also a pretty great all-round cleanser that’s gentle-yet-effective.
Milky Jelly Cleanser is pH-balanced with five skin conditioners that won’t leave your skin irritated or feeling tight.
It’s also hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, safe for the eye area, ophthalmologist tested, appropriate for all skin types, soap free, paraben free, sulfate free, cruelty free, non-comedogenic, vegan.
This gentle cleanser is anything but ordinary, removing make up and impurities as it retains your skin’s moisture – unlike some harsher cleansers, there’s no need to worry about tightness after using this. Star of the show is squalane, a first-class hydrator that’s found naturally in the skin, helping to prevent loss of moisture and boost suppleness. This combines with other lipophilic esters to dissolve make up and unwanted grime for clean and clog-free pores. The hard-working formula feels balm-like when first applied, changing to a clear oil-like texture when warmed into your skin.
Free from soap, which can cause irritation or ‘strip’ the skin, making it suitable for all skin types – even sensitive ones.
This may not be as Insta-worthy in looks as some of the other cleansers, but this is a product that so many skincare lovers swear by and for good reason.
Developed with dermatologists, the gentle, non-foaming gel formula of the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser cleanses the skin to remove excess makeup and dirt. It contains 3 essential ceramides to help protect the skin barrier. Hyaluronic Acid helps to retain the skin’s natural moisture.
Another slightly under-rated product that pops up time and time again when talking about the best cleansers for all skin types is this one from La Roche-Posay. It was specifically formulated for every day use on sensitive or, reactive skin. It removes impurities and make-up without stripping skin of moisture.
Enriched with Glycerine and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water to instantly soothe and cleanse irritated skin.The minimalist formula contains no parabens, no preservatives, no fragrance, no alcohol, no colourants and no lanolin. It is 100% hypoallergenic and also non-comedogenic, so it won’t block pores.
