If you have dry skin or sensitive skin, then you know how difficult it can be to find a product that cleans your face effectively without irritating it, drying it out, or causing inflammation or redness. Don’t give up! We’re sharing three of our favorite sensitive skin facial cleansers. If you haven’t tried these yet, they just may change things for you.
1. Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser ($9.99) – The Burt’s Bees product lines are generally good for dry skin and sensitive skin, but this cleanser is especially awesome at soothing and gently cleaning the skin. A rich cream cleanser that’s fragrance-free and packed with good stuff, this is so soothing to put on sensitive skin. Made with cotton extract, rice extract, and aloe, it is gentle, nourishing, and rehydrating.
2. CeraVe’s Hydrating Cleanser ($12) – This sensitive skin facial cleanser from CeraVe has a cult-like following of women who think it is the only facial cleaner that’s reliably gentle for their skin. Made with glycerin, hyaluronic acid and ceramides, this cleanser is formulated to soothe and moisturize sensitive skin. It is free of common irritants (and fragrances) that bother sensitive skin. For an ultra-gentle skin cleanser that’s good for you, we recommend CeraVe’s Hydrating Cleanser.
3. Murad Soothing Gel Cleanser ($30) – CeraVe’s lotion-like cleanser can be heavy for summer, so we recommend switching to this lighter, super gentle Murad cleanser during summer months. Formulated with aloe vera, goji berry, peppermint, licorice root, and pomegranate extract, this cleanser sooths and cools inflamed or irritated skin. With regular use, sensitive skin can soften, smooth out, and become less reactive. This product works best when used with the other Dr. Murad products, but it will still benefit you if you use it alone.
