"Cleansing the skin is an essential first step for any healthy complexion, and when it's cold outside, I'll swap in products that simultaneously hydrate the skin as they clean. My top picks wash my face thoroughly, but never strip my skin of its natural oils. This creates a clean slate for skincare ingredients to penetrate, setting up a perfect base for Vital Skin Foundation.
Then because I have rosacea, I also look for ingredients that will combat inflammation, like probiotics, for my AM ritual or PM routine. Here are my top 9 cleansers—whether you prefer an oil, gel, or foaming formula—for fully refreshed, supple, and extra moisturized skin!" xx Gucci
"Dr. Macrene Alexiades creates the most luxurious products with the best performance and this cleanser is no exception! With so many incredible plant and skincare actives packed in, it feels especially nice to use when my skin is dry and irritable."
"This oil-based cleanser is a forever favorite, especially for colder seasons when I need to feel extra plump and dewy. Plus, it's super gentle yet effective as a makeup remover—it dissolves even the most vibrant lip colors."
"I love an exfoliating multi-tasker and recently did an IGLive with Tata Harper who recommended this formula for everyday use. Starting with clean, smooth skin before going into the rest of your beauty routine is always best."
"This cleanser works to balance the skin's natural microbiome and is packed with soothing ingredients. It's perfect for someone with rosacea and you'll feel squeaky clean but never dried out."
"What's so unique about this clean, science-backed brand is that all of their products have ten ingredients or less! The cleanser has a hybrid gel-to-milk texture that I've almost used until the last drop."
"If you prefer a lighter formula, this dual cleanser and toner is perfect yet still gets the job done. Olive-enriched micelles draw out skin impurities and active botanicals leave a subtle glow."
"Whenever I need to calm down flareups, I lather up this product. It has healing properties from tea tree oil and other beautiful, natural ingredients that brighten the skin and restore softness."
"This rich balm feels like a true luxury to use. First I massage it onto dry skin—remembering my neck as well!—and then I'll use a damp towel to gently remove makeup and excess product. I follow up with my cold weather go-to, The Rich Cream, to really lock in hydration."
