When it comes to washing my face, I have always considered it to be a daily cleansing ritual with my best face wash: Dove Beauty Moisture Face wash for winters, Pond’s Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam for summers,and Lakme After Sun Face wash post sun exposure.
To me, it is not just washing my face but a kind of mini facial that I give to my skin every morning and evening. My skin responds to this pampering treatment feeling refreshed, clean, and energized. While, washing your face can be an art, a cleanser is a cleanser right?
After all, they all do the same job of cleaning our skin, isn’t it? Well, no. Just like washing your face in a particular way, choosing the right face wash for your skin is also an art. The ritual is incomplete, unless you wash your face with the right face wash.
Choosing the Best Face Wash for Your Skin
Once you start using the right face wash, meant for your skin type, you will start noticing the difference in your skin. The only key to good skincare lies in leaving all the harp and using beauty products meant for your skin type. And beauties, the good news is, we are living in an era, where skincare brands have got something for everyone.
So here is my list of ten best face washes available in the market:
- Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser:
This is an all time dermatologists’ favorite formula. It is light, smooth, has no scent and effectively removes every speck of dirt, grim, and make up. It is budget-friendly and suits most skin types.
Good: Effective cleanser
Bad: Does not contain special ingredients for specific skin concerns. It is not a fancy product.
A gel based cleanser for normal to oily skin. It is a herbal product that contains neem and turmeric extracts to combat oily skin problems and detoxify skin from deep within. A budget-friendly product but don’t expect miracles, especially if you have acne-prone skin.
Good: Herbal product. Does not cause dryness. Cleans well.
Bad: Leaves a film behind. Does not treat acne.
Good: Effective deep cleanser for skin.
Bad: Little expensive for the work it does, i.e. deep cleansing the skin.
Contains activated carbon to rid the skin of all its impurities. I personally prefer this face wash over Neutrogena deep clean face wash for deeply cleaning my skin. Along with effectively removing all traces of dirt and grease, it leaves skin looking extra white and bight!
Good: Contains activated carbon. Whitens skin. Makes it squeaky clean.
Bad: Can cause dryness and stretchiness
Good: Suits all skin types. Cleans well.
Bad: Does not contain special or fancy ingredients. Tiny beads may feel harsh on extra sensitive skin.
Good: Leaves skin feeling clean and glowing.
Bad: May not suit oily skin.
- Olay Natural White Foaming Cleanser
A gel formula that contains cucumber extract to clean the skin. It provides excellent results to most skin types. Removes dirt, dust, grim, and makeup without drying the skin. Makes skin look radiant, fresh and squeaky clean.
Good: Contains natural brightening extracts for fairness. Gentle on skin. Nourishes skin.
Bad: May not suit highly oily or acne prone skin.
Good: Contains BHA for clearing skin imperfections.
Bad: Beauties with dry, sensitive and normal skin may find this cleanser harsh for their skin.
One of the best face washes in India, when it comes to soothing and cleaning sun exposed skin. Contains special skin soothing and anti-tan ingredients to deeply clean and nourish each pore after sun exposure.
Good: Suits most skin types. Feels soothing and nourishing on skin.
Bad: Could not find any. Must-have for Indian summers.
Good: Good cleanser for all skin types and fulfills most skin concerns.
Bad: Highly oily skinned gals may not find this face wash suitable.
