Keeping your skin clean is important for so many reasons and will ensure your complexion looks clear, smooth, and healthy on a daily basis. The best way to keep your skin clean is to reach for a cleanser in the morning and in the evening but with so many available it can be daunting to know which formulation to go for. Adapting your beauty routine to your skin type is crucial and is the most important factor to keep in mind when choosing your cleanser. Foaming cleansers are great for some skin types but not suitable for all.


Foaming cleansers are exactly what they sound like, they create a foaming lather when applied and combined with water. They are pretty powerful cleansers and will remove even the most stubborn grime, oil, makeup, and sunscreens but this does mean that they can be a little more drying than other cleansers.


However, foaming cleansers have come along way from what they used to be and are more than often formulated with nourishing oils and hydrants to ensure that moisture is locked in and skin isn’t left feeling dehydrated. Despite this, we still recommend foaming cleansers for those with oily skin and acne-prone skin the most as they will thoroughly remove excess oils and breakout-causing bacteria. We recommend you stick to cream and balm cleansers if you have dry or sensitive skin as foaming ones can be a little more abrasive.


The Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel is one of our bestselling cleansers as it effortlessly eradicates excess oils, dead skin cells, and pollutants yet has a soap-free and non-drying formula so won’t disturb your skin’s natural moisture function. The Aspect Purastat 5 Cleanser is another firm favourite. The multi-purpose foaming cleanser offers gentle exfoliation to the skin using a gentle blend of sugar and coconut extracts to detoxify skin while delivering the deepest of cleanses.

really like this product

I used this in a trial size and loved it so ordered the full size, i dont know if its the sudden change in the weather here in sunny QLD, its turned really cold and dry but it just seems to be more drying of my skin, its still a beautiful cleanser and does a great job and i just use lots of moisturiser and then its all good :)

Great cleanser

An amazing cleanser for all skin types. It removes any excess dirts and oils, also helps to remove makeup as well. I use this as my second cleanser and only use it at night after being out all day. It leaves my skin really nice and soft and I can tell my skin has improved from the cleanser. Been using this for about 3months.

Nice product

This was a really nice product but I don't think it was suited to my skin type as much as I would've liked.

I don't feel like it cleaned my skin as thoroughly as other products, but it smells lovely and I'm sure would be great on another skin type :)
