Facial cleansers: choose a texture to suit your skin type

Cleansing is THE key to flawless skin: it's essential in our quest to keep our skin glowing, youthful and healthy. But we need to know which one is best for our skin type...

Milks and lotions for dry or mature skin

With their soft, creamy textures, cleansing milks are a beauty staple. Easy to use, they're suited to all skin types. They are, however, the perfect facial cleansers for dry skin, especially during winter, as they both gently clean and nourish. They moisturise skin and, unlike tap water, won't damage the epidermis.  

Oils for normal or dry skin

Oils are the latest cleansing superheroes! Perfect for normal or irritated skin, cleansing oils stick to and melt make up residues. No need to rub - in one quick sweep, they remove make up and impurities accumulated throughout the day (pollution, dust, sweat). Added plus: they're super quick to use and are the most effective of all facial cleansers!  

Micellar water for sensitive skin

This is the most gentle of facial cleansers. As fresh and light as water, as effective as a lotion, this one's for sensitive and/or patchy skin. It's the micelle content that harnesses skin's impurities and it's easily applied with a cotton pad. No rinsing or other facial cleanser required!  

Foams and gels for oily skin

Oily skin has to deal with an excess of sebum, which mixes with any make up and traps impurities. Oily skin needs a facial cleanser that works on a deeper level: aqueous foams and gels dissolve make up, cleanse skin and remove excess oil.
