With so many types to choose from, it can be difficult to choose the right cleanser for you. Your type of skin, and any skincare problems you're suffering from, will determine the right cleanser for you - however, it can also come down to simply what type you prefer the feel of.


Gel cleansers are best for those with acne-prone skin, or combination skin as it is great at removing excess oil.

We love the Clinelle Gel Cleanser 100ml.


Foam cleansers are best suited to oily skin types as they can be quite drying if left on the skin too long. A foam cleanser will create a foamy lather that is ideal for removing oil, layers of makeup and dirt.

As most foam cleansers are water-based they shouldn't be used by those with sensitive skin.


Milk cleansers tend to be very gentle and moisturising and are therefore best used by those with dry and/or sensitive skin. Milk cleansers are also great to use as a makeup remover.

Our favourite is the Clinelle HydraCalm Caring Milk Cleanser.
