Best cleanser for oily skin
The hero product: Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel
Oily skin produces a high amount of oil and sebum so look for a cleanser that helps to clear the pores and refine skin texture. La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar Purifying Cleansing Gel is a great option as it has a high-tolerance foam that sweeps away grime and oil without disrupting the skin’s natural pH balance or barrier function. This type of cleanser is also suitable for sensitivity so it won’t strip or dry out the skin in the way a harsher alcohol-based formula may do.
Best cleanser for sensitive skin
The hero product: Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser
Very sensitive skin types need a cleanser that clears away impurities while also providing the skin with comfort and hydration. If your skin is intolerant, or prone to reactions, and you find that water creates extra sensitivity, you may benefit from a wipe-off milk such as La Roche-Posay's Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser. Specifically formulated for everyday use on sensitive, reactive skin and also suitable for allergy-prone skin. The gentle formula is enriched with glycerine and Thermal Spring Water and instantly cleanses and soothes irritated skin.
Best cleanser for combination skin
The hero product: Effaclar Purifying Micellar Water
Combination skin types usually have oiliness across the t-zone with a few patches of dryness here and there, so it can be tricky to know which concern to tackle. La Roche-Posay’s Purifying Micellar Water is one of our most popular hero products for combination skin as it’s ultra-effective at removing makeup and dirt while controlling excess levels of oil. It also doesn’t disrupt the skin’s natural barrier that’s responsible for locking in moisture, so dry areas won’t be exacerbated.
