The 5 Best Budget Friendly Facial Cleansers

I feel like my skin is ever changing - sometimes it is ultra oily, sometimes dry - usually a combination of both (I know, I am such a lucky girl). To combat my combination skin, I have sampled quite a few facial cleansers so I know which to choose and which to steer clear of. Here are my top 5 favorite -

1) Cetaphil:
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser is one of my faves. Now this one isn't special for any particular reason but it gets the job done and keeps breakouts at bay. Just be sure you get the one labeled 'For Normal to Oily Skin' - the others leave a weird film on my face - YIKES!

2) Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser
Ugh - breakouts are icky but I promise that they will go away fast with this face wash. I love, love, love all the suds and foam and it leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean but not dry. The smell is sweet - just like grapefruits : )

3) Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser

If you've got sensitive skin that is dry, you'll love this one. What I like best is that even though it's for dry skin - you still get plenty of lather.

4) Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash

Have you tried this one? It sort of reminds me of the same formula as the Cetaphil one I like. It is VERY mild so it won't help with acne or oiliness but it cleans off dirt, makeup and daytime grime really well. The only downside is the sort of medicine-y smell.

5) Philosophy Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cleanser

This is the priciest facial cleanser on my list but I absolutely love it! It's $20 at Sephora and it is so great because it gets your skin super duper clean AND it leaves it feeling A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. afterward. I highly recommend it.

Have you tried any of these? I'd love to hear what you think!


  1. I love Cetaphil! It is the best!

  2. I haven't tried any of these.. I normally use Oil of olay face wash...
