The Cleanser Part 3: my picks

Posted by on Oct 13, 2008

For clean, makeup free skin, here are my favourite cleansers:

  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. RRP is less than $7 for 250ml.
  • Olay Definity and Neutrogena cream cleansers. Both are excellent products and retail for just under $20. Unless you have very dry skin, neither should leave your skin feeling stripped of moisture. I prefer using these on days when I have worn a little more makeup. While the price is higher than Cetaphil, they are more effective and remove the same amount of makeup in less time.
  • Johnson’s Baby Skincare Wipes (Fragrance Free). In my own skincare routine, I reserve wipes mostly for when I’m traveling. While these are ‘technically’ baby wipes and not makeup wipes, I believe they do the job and are gentler on the skin. They also make sense price-wise: 80 Johnson’s baby wipes retail for $6, while most brands of makeup wipes retail at about $8 for a pack of 25.
