Battle of the Face Cleansers

Collegeskincare
My skin type is combo oily that can lean more dry during the weather changes or just randomly. My skin concerns are acne, oiliness throughout the day and also dehydration. I’ve ranked the face washes I currently have open right now based on how they worked for me personally (starting from favorite). My all time favorite is COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
because I can actually tell a difference in my skin, unlike the other cleansers and can be used AM and PM. . COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
Key Ingredients: Tea Tree and Beta Hydroxy Acids (work together to refine pores, control oil, and soften skin). Texture/Consistency: Gel that turns to foam Scent: Very strong Tea Tree scent Price: $14 for 5.07 oz Experience: I use this as my AM cleanser and it does a good job of removing the previous night’s skincare and having a new base for my AM skincare. It foams a lot, so only need a small amount of product. Since I’ve been using this, my face has gotten more smooth and not as oily throughout the day. I knocked off a star since the scent is so strong of tea tree. Repurchase/Recommend?: I will repurchase this and recommend this because it’s a great value and only need a small amount of product. My combo oily skin also agrees with this formula, I’m so excited to use it this summer and see how and if it helps my skin. . MARIO BADESCU - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser
Key Ingredients: Glycolic acid (exfoliates the skin and dissolves dulling dead skin cells to help refine pores and retexturize uneven skin), and a soothing blend of chamomile, marshmallow, safe, St. John’s wort, and yarrow extracts (work together to provide additional rejuvenating benefits that help re-balance and leave skin radiant). Texture/Consistency: Gel that turns to foam Scent: Price: $16 for 6 oz / 177 mL Experience: I use this maybe 2-3 times a week (as directed for oily skin) and haven’t noticed much of a difference in my skin. It performs just like any other cleanser to me. I use it as my second cleanse and it’s just meh. Honestly not impressed with this and glad I got it as a free sample. Repurchase/Recommend?: I would not repurchase or recommend this, I haven’t noticed any special benefit over any other cleanser. . philosophy - Clear Days Ahead Oil-Free Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Cleanser
Key Ingredients: Salicylic Acid (helps prevent breakouts). Texture/Consistency: Gel Scent: Very strong orange scent Price: $22 for 8 oz Experience: Even after using this a couple times a week as my second cleanse at night, I’ve only seen a minimal amount of reduction in my acne and can’t contribute it solely to this. The scent is so strong that I can smell it for a while after washing my face. It can be difficult to completely wash off the face. Repurchase/Recommend?: No, too expensive for what it does.

CollegeskincareThank you 🥰! The tea tree scent is very strong, so I don’t think people with a sensitivity to fragrance would like it. Sorry, I should have mentioned that’s why I took a star off! But for me the scent isn’t an issue and I love it!

Not My Favorite Cleanser
I really love this cleanser! This lightly cleanses your skin and I feel it doesn’t remove all the oil off your skin with realizing some of that oil is still needed while still removing the dirty and unnecessary oil 🎃- this has fragrance in it. Which is not a nice benefit in my opinion as it CAN lead to skin irritation but if it works for your skin work it! There’s no long term downfalls so far to using this product although personally I would use a different cleanser Review- This cleanser I got as a sample at Ulta and I really like it! I normally use a heavy duty cleanser like African black soap but this one I really love also! I recommend this for anyone with sensitive skin because it is really nice and not too rough on skin Rating- I gave this a 5 star because it really does everything it says it’ll do and gives you a nice clean feeling Purchasing- I could see myself buying this in the future but after this is gone I probably will stick with my black soap. Not because I dislike it! Just my preference (:MARIO BADESCU - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

5•26•20 ✨This mornings skin routine✨ 1. Cleanse: MARIO BADESCU - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is a cleanser for ALL skin types & you typically only need to use 2-3x a week depending on your skin type. I have a combination skin type which may cause me to use 1-2x a week. No more than that! This leaves my face feeling super clean! • 2. Tone: DICKINSON'S - Energizing Astringentworks good for my skin; it’s not for everyone though. I find that some toners leave my skin feeling tight and dry but this one does not. • 3. Scrub: OLE HENRIKSEN - Transforming Walnut ScrubI only use a facial scrub once a week as it tends to dry out my skin too much and leaves it feeling irritable or causes a burning sensation; so I only use it once throughout the week & that does the trick! • 4. Serum:SEPHORA COLLECTION - Ultra Glow Serum: Glow + Strengthen Vitamin C Serum I LOVE LOVE LOVE this serum!!!! It gives my skin a glow like never before!! I will always use this product right before applying my moisturizer without a doubt. I would definitely recommend this product. • 5. Moisturize:Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream Lastly I applied my favorite moisturizer thus far! This stuff does not get rid of the glow my serum gives me after applying or give me a dull look as some moisturizer cream does. AMAZING stuff! Definitely purchase.

Best cleanser for acne prone skin
For #fridayfavorites I want to highlight a #cultfavorite COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser After hearing so many good things about this cleanser I had to try it. I ordered it from Stylevana and was happy that the order arrived in a week! For 11 CAD I think it’s value for money considering how good this cleanser is. It’s very gentle on my skin and I tend to use this cleanser more often than others. It has a gel like consistency and is not too foamy and a little goes a long way. It washes away impurities without stripping my skin. It has a low PH which is said to be effective in protecting our skin’s acid mantle. #acidmantle protects the skin from harmful bacteria that can cause acne and other skin problems. Low ph cleansers are also good for people with eczema and dryness. FUN FACT: did you know this product was crowd sourced!! Customers gave feedback to @cosrx asking for a low ph cleanser and they delivered! Isn’t that awesome! #fridayfavorites #funfactfridays #cosrxcleanser #cosrxph #fanfav #kleanbsecrets #myfavoriteproducts #skincareproductsthatwork #skincareproducts #skincarephotography #productphotographer #productphotography #torontoskincareblogger #skincareformen #skincareforallcultures

Cleansing routine for Acne Prone Skin ✨
Hi Cherie Friends, I just wanted to share my favorite AM and PM cleansing routine. Skin Background: I’m in my mid thirties and I have combination-to-dry, sensitive reactive and acne prone skin. I also have eczema... all around fun times. My main concerns are of course treating breakouts, maintain balance moisture level, and stop the aging clock as much as possible. I mainly only use cruelty-free, Vegan when possible products— there’s no need for that nonsense with the myriad of technology that we have today. 🌙PM Cleansing routine: When I wear a full face of make up I like to triple cleanse. ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm I will massage a pea to some size of this baby all over my face. This is so gentle and really breakdown all my waterproof mascara and foundation. MakeUp Eraser - Holiday Set Then remove them with these babies. Did you know that one pad can replace up to 500 make up wipes? Which all end up in our ocean or the landfills. I usually repeat this step, depends on how I’m feeling. #Zenmed - Facial Cleansing Gel[products]#[FiveStars] Friends, if you have not heard of Zenmed and you have acne— you must try it! This is a gentle gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin and cleans so well. I just put a dime size cleanser on myMICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Soniclear Petite Antimicrobial Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush with MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Delicate Sensitive Skin Antimicrobial Brush Head My skin feels so soft and clean after 2 minutes of cleansing. The brush tells you when you’re finished I also use the cleansing brush with MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Soniclear Replacement Serum Infusion Head to massage in the serums. On Non-make up days: I still use my MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Soniclear Petite Antimicrobial Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush & MICHAEL TODD BEAUTY - Delicate Sensitive Skin Antimicrobial Brush Head With a dollop of COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser I also really love how gentle this cleanser is and the added BHA helps to gentility exfoliate any excess dead skin cells and sebum. ☀️ AM Cleansing Routine: I hate waking up guys... I hate it so much. So I pretty much keep it really simple. Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser I’ve been loving this gentle cleanser. It smells amazing and super super gentle and pack enough punch to just remove the gunk out of my eyes and wake me up. I believe you can also use this to remove make up but I haven’t tried it yet. I’m actually running out of cleansers, please let me know your favorites below! 🐰cruelty free Thank you! Be Kind, Stay Beautiful

Product Empty: Olehenriksen Oil Control Cleanser
Product Empty: Olehenriksen Oil Control Cleanser
Claims: Skin type: oily & combo skin Solution: oiliness, pores & acne /blemishes What it does: a pore-purifying cleanser with AHA’s to help reduce excess oil and unclog pores, without stripping skin. Formulated with ‘Green Fusion Complex’ and neem seed oil, it deep cleans and helps to unclog and purify pores. AHA’s -glycolic and lactic acid- help to lift dead skin cells that can leave pores clogged. My Thoughts 💭 This cleanser did help with my acne and my pores seemed less clogged as well. I didn’t notice much change in my oiliness, but that’s OK. The eucalyptus scent is invigorating as well as relaxing. I do have one hang up and that’s the fact that Olehenriksen uses palm oil, I really enjoyed this cleanser, it’s sad because this brand has enough resources to find a substitute and stop the devastating effect of growing and harvesting palm oil😔 I’m giving 5⭐️ because the product helped my acne a lot... I’m not sure if I’m going to repurchase, if any one has any suggestions I’m all ears.

I realized that despite being
I realized that despite being my favorite second cleanse of all time, I have never formally reviewed the iSCLINICAL Cleansing Complex! A low-pH runny gel cleanser, with willow bark and sugar cane extracts (natural sources of Salicylic and Glycolic Acid) and gentle surfactants to cleanse and decongest the skin. (Note, the pH is not low enough for the extracts to effectively exfoliate, but they certainly add to its decongesting properties). I was previously in the camp of ‘cleansers aren’t on the skin long enough to have effect’ but this cleanser was the first to change my mind almost two years ago. This cleanser is leap years ahead of the traditional cleansers marketed towards oily/acne skins. It is neither harsh nor remotely stripping to the skin, yet is still able to effectively prevent breakouts (congestion in particular, in my experience) by removing dirt, debris and dead skin cells to prevent build up within the pore. I’ve noticed that when I’ve gone through phases of opting for something like Glossier Milky Jelly instead - I will experience more congestion or inflamed breakouts than if I were using the Cleansing Complex consistently. I’ll admit, I’ll occasionally yearn for a more sensory experience with a fun-textured or heavenly-scented cleanser, and sometimes switch it out - but I’m always running back (sometimes within days) to this one. It’s fragrance-free, fuss-free and it does the job - and more. I would recommend this for combo-oily and in particular, acneic skins. Though I have seen people with drier skin types also use this with success.

Salicylic acid
Salicylic acid
Is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that occurs as a natural compound in plants. It has direct activity as an anti-inflammatory agent and acts as a topical antibacterial agent due to it’s ability to promote exfoliation. Benefits: 🔸 Fights acne 🔸 Decreses oil secretion 🔸 Reduces inflammation and redness 🔸 Removes dead skin cells Side effects: can irritate (peeling, redness) and dry on very sensitive skin. So, this ingredient is best known for it's exfoliating and bacteria-fighting powers, I like it because it’s not an aggressive acid and it works well cleaning the pores and get rid of pimples. CAUDALIE - Vinopure Pore Purifying Gel Cleanser This gel cleanser contains 100% natural salicylic acid, helps to minimize the appearance of pores, blemishes and oil. It is ideal for oily skin and combination. The texture of this cleanser is lightweight gel that foams when applied on damp skin. I really don't like the way this smells, but works well by cleaning my pores and drying pimples faster, without irritation and without drying my skin. After using it my skin feels clean and fresh. Although it contains essential oils such as the beauty elixir, but this product doesn’t cause me irritation or redness. Price: $ 28 (5 oz). TULA SKINCARE - Keep It Clear Acne Foam Cleanser Gentle foam cleanser with salicylic acid and licorice, treats regular or occasional breakouts leaving skin looking soft and glowing. Contains 2% salicylic acid, one of the highest for sale without a prescription. This is recommended for oily skin, combination, mature, dry and acne prone. It has a foam texture, making it easy to apply and remove. The aroma of this cleanser is strong, it smells like tea tree oil. I like it because it doesn't dry my skin when I use it either, and it leaves it very fresh. It has helped me to stop new pimples. Price: $ 34 (6.3 oz). THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser Lightly foaming cleanser that removes makeup and dirt, helping to reduce blackheads, acne and blemishes while unclogging pores. They recommend it for oily, combination and normal skin. This one like the previous one also has 2% salicylic acid. I just started using this but it has given me very good results in the pimples that come out occasionally without irritating or drying my skin, leaving it soft. It has a light and clean fragrance. Price: $ 9.99 (5 oz). This is by far the cheapest of the three, and it really works just as well as the other two. I like the results I get with them since they don’t irritate my skin. In my opinion any of the 3 are a good investment, I just started using the cleanser of The Inkey list, but I could say that it’s the one I like the most, because it has a subtle smell and leaves my skin soft after using it, in addition to having a good price.

Holifrog Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash - • Price: $38 for 4 fl. oz. • Skin type: oily, combo, and dry • Product function: a cleanser that works to clear each pore to reveal smooth, glassy skin • Target concerns: breakouts, congestion, large pores, dullness, and texture • Key ingredients: Glycolic, mandelic, lactic, tartaric, and citric acids; lime extract, tamanu oil, rosehip oil and aloe vera • Texture: a translucent, white, and moderately thick gel • Fragrance: unscented; just a clean tangy scent How I use it: At night as my second cleanse My opinion: I was gifted this cleanser along with the entire Holifrog line from Poke PR. This is the most gentle exfoliating cleanser that I have ever tried. It effectively dissolves all traces of debris and dead skin without leaving my skin feeling stripped or tight. When I first used this product, I didn’t like it that much because it doesn’t lather or foam, but then I learned that it was specifically formulated not to lather to prevent strpping of the skin. I am not a huge fan of the smell, but I don’t mind it that much because the product is so good. After using this, my skin feels clean, clear, and ready to take on the rest of my routine. I really enjoy using this at night after a long day out and about to wash away all of the grime from the day. I do think that the price is a little high, but there is no other product like Shasta on the market. I definitely recommend Shasta to anyone looking for a new cleanser that struggles with congestion and breakouts. HOLI FROG - Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash

OLEHENRIKSEN Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser This product is marketed as a pore-purifying cleanser that has powerful AHAs to help reduce excess oil and unclog pores, without stripping the skin. It is used to help reduce oiliness, minimize pores, and help prevent acne and blemishes. This cleanser contains glycolic and lactic acids which help to loosen and lift dead skin cells and help to prevent build up on the skin. It claims to help refresh your complexion and bring a healthy-looking glow to the skin. The texture of this cleanser is a little thick, but a little goes a long way! My favorite thing about the cleanser is how easily it lathers up! So I decided to try this product because I was looking for a cleanser that would help prevent acne and blemishes. I have been using this product for a year now and I love it!! As someone that has dry skin, I was very hesitant to try this product out as I thought it was going to dry my skin out. However, this product didn’t dry my skin at all and helped me prevent any blemishes. It helped me attain healthier-looking skin and made my skin look and feel super refreshed. This cleanser retails for $26 on Sephora, and I think it is really worth it! I would recommend this product to others as I feel that it could work on many skin types and help prevent any acne or breakouts!
