Facial Cleansers & Exfoliators Reviews

The key to flawless makeup is a flawless canvas.  Eating right, getting adequate exercise and rest, and proper hydration start your beauty regimen from within; the right facial cleansing product is the essential next step.  You should look for the right cleanser according to your skin type and skin health.  Regular exfoliation will gently buff dead skin and impurities away, leaving nothing but baby-soft smoothness behind.

ChickAdvisors praise Cetaphil Daily for sensitive skin, Garnier Skin Renew Brusher Gel for normal skin, Spectro Jel for dry skin, and Philosophy Purity Made Simple for all-purpose cleansing.  Try St Ives Apricot Scrub or the Clarisonic Skin Care Brush for your exfoliating needs, and Olay Daily Facial Cloths for quick cleaning at the gym or on the go!

St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub
I have been using this scrub for many years, it is great. I leave it in the shower and use it on my face and chest. Just enough scrubbing not too harsh.

Spectro Jel Cleanser
I went from using this as a teenager to other well-marketed items, Proactive for awhile, and now back to basics with this face wash. I have sensitive skin and this works great as a basic cleanser. I use un-scented which is great, and its just very soft and easy and cooling on my...

Clinique 3-Step Skin Care System
Purchased the Clinique 3 step for my sensitive skin and unfortunately had very poor results. Just starting with the cleanser, my skin started to burn. I washed it away quickly and tried toning to relieve the the drying burn, which helped. The toner is lovely. Put the...

I like this product. I think it's so cool and innovative. I have used up about three of these in my lifetime lol. I love the smell. I also like that it isn't to harsh.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser
This is my holy grail cleanser. I've tried others and always seem to go back to Purity. Honestly, I don't know why I even bother trying others any more, because they're never as good. I like that it's super gentle, since I have sensitive skin, and can be used on the eyes so most...

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash
I have been using this for years. It has really been an essential part of my face care routine that I credit with getting my blemished skin problem under control. I usually get a few bottles at a time, when The Body Shop is having a sale.

Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush
Clinique Sonic System is totally different than my Clarisonic, First up, its swiss-engineered oval brush head and ergonomic handle are truly unique. The oval brush head tilts for targeted cleansing, allowing you to focus and reach problem, and hard to reach areas, like the nose...

Clinique 7 Day Scrub
At first I was only using this product periodically, or when I remembered in the shower. I was noticing some results using the product in this manner. However, after giving birth to my daughter my skin was a MESS to say the least. I made a vow to myself that I was going to have...

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
I got this in one of my subscription boxes. And i liked it. I would probably buy it. It made my skin smooth and soft. Got rid of some nasty areas on my nose. It was a small bottle but i found it did last a while

Clarisonic Mia
I love my clarisonic; I use the acne brushes so its not to rough on my skin and I can use it everyday without it irritating the skins surfaces. It really gets deep in the pores and cleans it up and I see a huge improvement in my skin right after one use, I looks super clean and...

Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser
I don't have sensitive skin but I use this because it is mild and the scent is not overwhelming. It works effectively and doesn't leave any residue on my face.

Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser
under few days of using Biore, i started noticing my rather rough face feeling soft and smooth. it leaves my face normal for long unlike being wetty with other cleansers. it deeply cleanses such that a subsequent cleaning with another cleanser brings no dirt or oil. i will stick...
