The Most Effective Face Cleansers for Sensitive Skin

Woman with freckles

As a woman endowed with sensitive skin (curse you, genes!), I know what it’s like to feel perpetually disillusioned by skin products. Having tried and tested everything from high-street to upscale brands, it’s been a gruelling process of finding products that tame, rather than irritate, my skin. As much as I was swayed by the latest ‘greatest’ products I saw in magazines, I was finally able to find incredible products for my skin by listening to authentic advice from dermatologists, and from those who were experiencing the same trials and tribulations.

If you have sensitive skin like myself, fret not! I disclose four of my Holy Grail facial cleansers that will treat your sensitive skin like a rare gem.

CETAPHIL Gentle Skin Cleanser

Cetaphil is the gentle facial cleanser of dreams. As Max Factor uses the witty slogan that their products are makeup for makeup artists, one could say that Cetaphil is the facial cleanser for dermatologists. A mild, non-fragrant, non-irritating formula, the facial wash removes makeup and impurities whilst soothing your skin. Its mild consistency retains skin of its natural oils, and leaves your face feeling refreshed and delicate as a baby.

SEBAMED Facial Cleanser for Oily and Combination Skin

Don’t be fooled by Sebamed’s minimal packaging, as their facial cleanser for oily and combination skin is liquid gold. Similar to Cetaphil, Sebamed has a soap-free, scent-free formula, and helps to deep clean pores and remove excess sebum whilst also hydrating your face. It only takes a small quantity of the cleanser for a nice lather, making this product an excellent investment.

KIEHL’S Ultra Facial Cleanser

Tired of taut, dry skin after washing your face? Kiehl’s ultra facial cleanser is the answer to your woes. Its magnificently gentle foaming lather rids skin of excess dirt and oils all without over-drying your skin. The cleanser also acts as a primer by minimising pores, giving you an ULTRA smooth and polished face for your makeup application. Because of its frothy formula, this cleanser is amazing to use with a sonic skincare brush.

CLEARASIL Dailyclear Vitamins & Extracts Scrub

Not only does this deep-penetrating cleanser smell euphoric (a sweet, luxurious mix of avocado and pomegranate), it is the most gentle of exfoliators as exfoliators come. Its inclusion of vitamin E nourishes skin, whilst its exfoliating beads helps unclog pores for a smooth, supple complexion. Additionally, its natural ingredients creates brighter-looking, luminous skin!
