It’s officially spring, people! And this year, we’re planning on taking our spring cleaning seriously — specifically, we’re talking about a spring cleaning makeover of our entire skincare routine. The first stop in our routine makeover? A seriously great cleanser to smooth our skin’s transition from winter to spring. That’s why we’ve picked five our favorite cleansers to get our post-winter skin in to tip-top shape, bringing out the ultimate dose of radiance and glow.
There is simply no skin type this miracle cleanser can’t work for — it’s that good. This facial wash uses some innovative ingredients such as colloidal peptides, pineapple enzymes and red algae to calm inflamed skin while eliminating excess oils and bacteria. In fact, this gentle cleanser has some many good-for-you ingredients that it’s recommended you leave the mixture on your face for several seconds before washing away, allowing your mug to really soak in all the benefits.
If you’re in the market for a makeup-removing wonder cleanser, we’ve got your new favorite pick right here. A combination of sunflower, papaya and pumpkin oils will break down even waterproof makeup in an instant, washing it away to reveal a newly nourished complexion. Use it as a first cleanse to get rid of makeup, or even use it alone to both detoxify and hydrate troubled skin.
For those with easily irritable skin, this gentle cleanser is a great pick. Instead of washing away dirt and grime with harsh, abrasive ingredients, this cleanser combines witch hazel and castile soap to lift away impurities without bothering sensitive skin. Additionally, the creamy cleanser will leave your skin looking and feeling particularly hydrated, eliminating the dry, itchy complexion that winter has left behind.
Dry skin patches, you’ve met your match! This cleanser starts out as a dry powder, a concoction jam-packed with clays, warming spices and healing salts. The magic really starts working when you combine this mixture with a bit of water, though. When adding a bit of H2O, the formula activates to become a mousse-like consistency. What makes this such a great pick for dry skin is the cleanser’s ability to both clean and exfoliate, gently lifting away dead skin cells to leave behind your most radiant self.
No matter what your skin type, you’ll fall head over heels for the beautiful effects of this aptly-named brightening cleanser. The key ingredient with this one is strawberries, which not only gives the gel cleanser a super-sweet scent, but also provides your skin with an all-around brighter glow.
