Gel cleansers are great if you’re looking for something that’s hydrating, but still light weight. Since they are for a more gentle cleanse, they’re great for the morning or as a second cleanse in the evening. This type of cleanser is best for normal to combo skin types. 


Are you a dry skin gal? You’ll want to try this one out. Cream cleansers are great for dry or mature skin because they are deeply moisturizing at the same time. They also don’t strip away our skin’s natural oils. This type of cleanser is best for sensitive, dry or mature skin types.

If you have oily skin, DON’T FREAK OUT. Oil cleaners are actually great for all skin types. This may sound counter intuitive, but hear us out. The reason why oil cleansers work great for all skin types is because the idea is that like attracts like. In this case, oil attracts oil. When using an oil cleanser, it works to pull out all the dirt and oils in our pores but doesn’t strip the skin leaving you feeling soft and plump. This type of cleanser is best for EVERYONE!


Similar to oil cleansers, but in a more solid form. They are heavier, so avoid if you have oily and acne prone skin as they can clog pores. They’re great for removing oil and dirt without drying out the skin. They’re also deeply nourishing. This type of cleanser is best for dry to normal skin types.

Powders are big in the natural skincare realm because they don’t require preservatives since ingredients are inactive. If you’re used to a cleanser that’s already activated, it may take a little time to get used to this type of cleanser, but once you do, they’re great as a first cleanse and for removing makeup. When mixed with water, the powder turns to a cream or a foam. This type of cleanser is best for combo and oily skin types.
