Super Healthy Skin™, £50 | Beauty Pie

If you’re after something lightweight and easy to use, make this foaming gel cleanser your go-to. It contains hydrophilic oil and purifying amino acids to give the skin a clean and fresh feel without stripping it of its natural moisture. Meanwhile, gentle exfoliants improve the look and feel of your skin’s texture, too.

Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Foaming Face Wash, £4.50 | Boots

If the Boots own-brand products have fallen a little under your radar, this is your sign to give them a go. There’s no question the products are affordable, but fans also rave about how effective and hardworking they are. This cleanser is great for tackling problematic skin – the tree and witch hazel-based formula is specifically designed to fight spot-causing bacteria.

Purple Ginseng Cleansing Balm, £21 | Naturium

To properly melt away the dirt of the day, this cleanser is both soothing and effective. Formulated with a blend of linoleic-rich oils and plant-based ingredients, it’s gentle, too – making it a reliable option if you’re on the more sensitive side.

Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser, £14 | CeraVe

Regular readers know we’re big fans of Cerave’s cleansers. The range has something for everyone – whether your skin is dry, oily or acne prone. Plus, there are several formulas available to suit your preference. A favourite is this oil-to-foam cleanser which – unlike a typical oil-based product – doesn't feel greasy or heavy on the skin. Instead, when it meets with water, the gel transforms into a creamy foam that removes make-up and other impurities.

Hydrating Cleansing Foam With Green Tea, £9 | Innisfree

Formulated as a cream, but transforming into a foam on contact with water, this cleaner is perfect for dry skin in need of a hydration boost. Kind to the skin barrier, added green tea is effective at keeping the skin soft, supple and fresh, while also declogging pores to minimise breakouts.
