The amount of people that came out to voice their opinion of face washes was intimidating, but a clear top three was decided. Now, it’s time to choose the best of the best. Check out the nominations below and decide which product you’d like to put on your face every day.


Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser for face & body, it doesn’t lather at all, but it doesn’t leave my face ultra dry either. My skin is pretty sensitive and this is the only thing I have found that doesn’t upset it. - DeadlyNightshade83

The one and only, now and forever. - stacyinbean

Cosigned. In my mid-40s, been using the stuff since I was 18, and get compliments on my skin all the time. - juniperjones


CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

Yes! I’ve been using this for a couple of years now and I love everything about it. I used to use Cetaphil but it just didn’t do anything for me during the winter when my skin becomes so dry but this stuff ROCKS. It actually moisturizes my skin. I don’t wear foundation (just a light, tinted BB cream) so I can’t say what it does for a face full of makeup, but as long as I clean my face with this for about a minute it takes off sunscreen and mascara and all of that junk. - Melissa

Fuck yea, Cerave. - TedeseocariñoboyitsyouIdesire


CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser

CeraVe Foaming cleanser. I use it after I’ve removed my makeup. It does an excellent job of cleansing my face and removing any traces of makeup I missed while not leaving me with that dreaded tight face feeling. It lasts a long time since you get so much product. Been using the same bottle for close to 6 months. You can get it at most stores but I get mine at Ulta to rack up points. - Dyrim

Want to second all of this. I tried Cetaphil on my derm’s recommendation, but it does nothing for makeup. This stuff gets my face really clean but is still very gentle. - Vanellope
