Cleanser Guide

Guide to Face Wash, Eye Makeup Removers and more!

We all need to wash our face, but it isn’t quite as simple as that sounds! There are more options than ever before to get your face clean. Do you pick a traditional bar soap, a face wash or what about a Micellar water? Will that remove all of your eye makeup or do you need a separate eye makeup remover? What about a deep cleansing brush, do you need one of those? What do dermatologists recommend?

I’m compiling all of my face cleansing posts here in one place, and updating things as I go along. If you’re looking for information about getting the dirt or makeup off of your face, this Cleanser Guide is a great place to start!

How Soap and Cleansers Work: This post also reviews a ton of common ingredients in cleansers and goes over a lot of different cleanser types. It’s a great place to start!
