Best Facial Cleansers for Young Looking Skin
You don't need to spend lots of money in order to find the best facial cleanser. There's a wide variety of products on the market and you don't need to buy the most expensive in order to achieve the same result - skin that's free of microscopic debris and traces of oil, make-up and the signs of daily life.
The products that I recommend are gentle on the face, cleanse without leaving any negative after effects and do the job they were meant to do - become a part of your daily skin-care routine. You can purchase cleansers according to your skin type so do make sure that if you've got combination skin - that's what you purchase. They're particularly good to use after a twice weekly use of body scrub - as the pores on your face will be more open.
The five best anti-aging facial cleansers for women are featured below. They're all top facial products in their own right, highly rated and ever popular with other women. Plus they're good value for money - which is always a bonus when we're running on a budget!
Obagi Nu-Derm Foaming Gel
This is not only one of the best facial cleanser products - it's also the best selling. This one's a foaming cleanser - it creates a light, creamy foam that helps to penetrate the pores and clean safely and effectively.
It's a brand that's regularly recommended by Dermatologists due to it's ability to cleanse dry and sensitive skin types. As it's a gel type, use a small amount as it will treble (or more) in size once you activate it by massaging it into your face and neck. It's non-irritating, effective and will leave your face soft, clean and ready for your chosen moisturizer.
Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
This is another best selling foaming facial cleanser that's gentle yet efficient at cleansing your face and neck. It will work with a variety of skin-types due to it's mild formula - dry skin, oil and combination skin and it's free from soap and regular irritants sometimes found in other face wash products.
It won't dry out your skin and will redress any balance that your skin requires over a period of time. Due to it's ability to work gently, it's super safe for those that suffer from tricky skin conditions, such as eczema, and won't further dry out the skin post use. A made in the US product, it's also available in a range of sizes and packaging - great buy, produces great results.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser
This is the best multi-action facial cleanser - and it's also one of the best for acne prone skin. Purity cleanses, tones and removes make-up, gently, without leaving your face dry or feeling as though it needs a ton of moisturizer applying on top.
It's packed full of a variety of oils - rose oil, geranium oil and palmarosa oil to name a few. They're all rich in their ability to cleanse, whilst leaving the face free of unwanted microscopic debris and blocked pores. It lacks a fragrance - sometimes an irritant to those with sensitive skin, and will begin to nourish and revitalize your face from the first time you use it. Reasonably priced and available in different size bottles.
Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Micro-Purifying Foaming Cleanser,
This is the best anti aging facial cleanser and comes from Olay. It's part of their Regenerist range and designed to be used in conjunction with their related products. That said - you can purchase it as a stand alone cleanser as it's a good one for re-hydrating and rejuvenating your face and neck.
It works using a gentle foaming action that lifts the debris from pores and across the skin's surface, leaving your face fresh, clean and ready for your moisturizer. Is it better than other cleansers? In my opinion it's as good as - but I do recommend that if you're going to buy it then purchase at least the Regenerist moisturizer. That way you'll benefit better from the range, as they are designed to compliment each other. Lovely, luxury cleanser, great discount price and from a trusted brand name.
Burt's Bees Facial Cleanser, Orange Essence
This is the best selling natural facial cleanser - though in truth it's not 100% natural. It rounds out at being 98.8% which is almost perfect. Still - for those that have problem skin it's well worth trying as it's pretty much made of of organic products that are known for being safe, cleansing and effective.
It has a kind of dual action approach - on one hand it will cleanse, on the other it will moisturize and nourish the skin. It's non-greasy, non-drying and if anything more towards the type that's better suited to dry skin types than anything else. It has a delicious smell to it and of course - what ends being washed down the sink won't go on to harm the environment! A lovely organic facial cleanser - leaves skin silky soft and refreshed.
