What are oils and balms good for?

We recommend cleansing oils for when you want to remove waterproof products or other stubborn makeup. Cleansing oils are great at removing all kinds of makeup because they blend in and dissolve other products very effectively, which means cleansing and refreshing your skin is fast and easy. Cleansing balms are popular because they combine the cleansing and moisturizing power of an oil cleanser with a gentle massaging effect, getting deep into pores to remove impurities and other debris.

Best For

Oily skin and combination skin.
Stubborn makeup like waterproof mascara.

What are the advantages of lotions?

Cleansing lotions are handy because they can take makeup off quickly and easily, even with a single cotton ball or pad. Companies are coming out with more and more kinds of lotions to fit any skin type or situation, even when the weather is putting your skin through the wringer. These cleansing lotions are full of moisturizing ingredients, so they’re particularly good for people who are worried about dry skin. New, high-performance cleansing lotions that can be used even over eyelash extensions are gaining popularity as well, so they’re worth a look!

Best For

Dry and combination skin.
Quick, easy removal of light makeup.

How are cleansing gels different?

Cleansing gels have a thicker texture that helps them stay on the skin without dripping or running, allowing it to absorb makeup and impurities while reducing friction and rubbing on the skin. There are plenty of formulations, from moisturizing to refreshing, with several that include moisturizing ingredients to give you a fresh, clean feeling even after washing your face. They’re well-balanced products that are perfect if you feel that milk and cream cleansers aren’t powerful enough, or that cleansing oils leave your skin too dry.

Best For

Sensitive, dry skin and combination skin.
When you need both cleansing and moisturizing power.

How about milk and cream cleansers?

Milk and cream cleansers gently remove makeup while retaining the skin’s natural oils. There are products with a comparatively weak cleansing power, but they can remove even heavy makeup with slow application and gentle massage, using the warmth of the hands to help dissolve the makeup. Because they don’t strip too much of the skin’s natural moisture and oils, they’re great for dry or delicate skin.

Best For

For sensitive and dry skin.
When your skin needs extra gentle care.

Recommendations from buyers

Recommendations from buyers1

Buyer Yukiko

Miss Tsuda recommended this cleansing and face washing gel for my combination skin. It only has the bare minimum of synthetic surfactants, so it’s not bad for my skin if I don’t manage to rinse it all off. After using it for a while, my skin was in much better shape. It’s the ideal cleanser in that it takes off everything that your skin doesn’t need, while maintaining its natural oils

I am so addicted to the fresh yuzu fragrance of this cleansing gel. After a long, hard day, it’s so refreshing to use.Even though it really gets all my makeup off, it leaves my skin really hydrated. This cleansing gel is just perfect for my dry skin.

Buyer Yukiko

Part of my daily skincare routine is to remove my foundation and eye makeup as soon as I get home, and this cleansing water does the job. It even takes off heavy foundation, and it only takes a cotton ball and a little gentle rubbing. The only thing is that it doesn’t work on is waterproof mascara. It leaves my skin super moisturized, never tight or dry. It’s really a lifesaver for convenient, one-step skincare.
