Best cleansers for sensitive skin

Skincare is very much a trial and error ordeal and when you have sensitive skin it is even more so. It took me ages to develop a skincare routine that works for me as much of what I tried would make my skin feel worse rather than better after using a moisturizer or a cleanser. It’s why I don’t change up my routine much, if at all, and why I use up a product before moving on to the next. My skin just likes it better that way. Here are 5 cleansers that my sensitive skin loves!

For my cleansing routine I use minimal products. I love micellar waters for taking off makeup, but to give my skin a good cleanse I like to go in with an actual cleanser.  I have tried a few and always think I should use them more often. But it’s one of those things in my routine that I feel I can skip if need be. I have however, tried all of these for longer periods of time and loved them.

Lush Angels on Bare Skin – The oldest love in my skincare life is Angels on Bare Skin. I’ve been using this for years and it was one of the first products I ever reviewed on here. I mostly use this in my shower as it is quite messy. Since it has a bit of a scrub to it, I don’t like using this too often. Just 2 – 3 times a week. I find that this has helped with clearing up pores and reducing breakouts.

Kruidvat Originals Komkommermelk (Cucumber Milk) – This is a very refreshing cleanser that works because of its simplicity. I simply put some of this on a cotton pad and it will clean my face. Great for use in the mornings, but it also works well for taking off face makeup. I find this quite nourishing, which is why I like using this in the winter time mostly when my skin can use some extra loving.

The Body Shop Aloe Vera Calming Facial Cleanser – The very first skincare range I found that worked for my skin was the Aloe Vera line at The Body Shop. This is so gentle and I always keep the cleanser and toner on hand. Not only is it a major throwback to my early beauty days, they are also great products. The cleanser lasts a long time, even with daily use and I prefer using this to take off that first layer of makeup.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple – A cult classic that I was weary off. Many skincare hypes have not worked for me as they are not right for my skin type. However, I had a sample size of this and loved it. I used it on vacation and found it not only cleansed my face, but was also super gentle. I immediately bought a small bottle once I ran out. Only the small one though: I have so many beauty products, that I knew it would take a while for me to get to this.

Lush Ultrabland – I am not a fan of oil cleansers. They are messy and often don’t get everything off and leave a greasy layer on my skin. Lush Ultrabland works well for me for some reason. A little goes a long way and I find this incredibly nourishing in the winter time when my skin gets extra dry and sensitive. Needless to say: I have a back up for this as I just don’t want to run out of it.

  1. The purity cleanser used to be my favorite! I’ve been using Boscia black charcoal cleanser the last few months because it’s been summer where I live and my skin is more oily/less sensitive during this time. In winter when it’s super dry and sensitive I always reach for natural cleansing milks like the one by OSEA.
