What are your favorite cleansers?

Here are a few of my cleansers that I currently have in rotation.

Do you double, triple cleanse or just wash your face once?

One of my favorites is La Roche-Posay’s Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser which is a soothing creamy cleanser made with La Roche-Posay’s Prebiotic Thermal Water. This drugstore goodie was recommended to me by my mother, she's a beauty guru. It's a gentle cleanser that's soap free, sulfate free, oil free, fragrance free, non-comedogenic and paraben free. It also contains glycerin, which keeps skin hydrated. I also love that this product is affordable and can be purchased over the counter at most drugstores.

The Drunk Elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser is the one I turn to when I need something strong enough to remove makeup but gentle enough that it won't irritate my skin. It's formulated with a mild, low pH surfactant and an antioxidant-rich blend of cantaloupe extract, a rich source of vitamins A and C, marula oil and aloe vera leaf extract, to help nourish, soothe and replenish the natural barrier or acid mantle, which helps skin stay healthy and balanced.

Mario Badescu’s Enzyme Cleansing Gel is a green, non-foaming gel cleanser full of Alpha Hydroxy Acids. This isn’t the cleanser you turn to when it’s time to remove makeup. I like to use this one with my Clarisonic brush. It's made with papaya and grapefruit extracts and makes my skin feel fresh and clean.

There's one face wash that no matter how many I have, I always go back to Philosophy's Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser. This award winning cleanser melts away dirt, oil, and makeup. It deep cleans pores while natural oil extracts help condition skin. The formula is not drying and lightly hydrates in one simple step, it's just an all-around great cleanser that can remove grime, leave your skin feeling soft and even. It's a little more expensive but I would say it's worth the price.
