Top 3 Face Washes for Clear & Radiant Skin!

As someone who has suffered from acne, I know just how DIFFICULT shopping for a face wash can be. It can feel like a life or death decision, right?? Believe me, I’ve spend my fair share of hours in the beauty care aisle, comfortably nestled on the washing face floor (yuck I knowreading the backs of countless bottles, searching for the perfect blend of non-comedogenic ingredients to suit my acne-ridden face. “Will this ingredient make me break out?? Or how about this one??” And out I pull my massive list of “ingredients to avoid“. Three hours later, I walk out of the store with a bottle of what I hope will be the answer to all of my problems. The excitement, the anticipation..

And then, ultimately, the let down when it doesn’t deliver, or even worse, makes me breakout more!

Well, for someone who has put in countless hours of research and trial and error, allow me to present you with my TOP 3 face washes for  clear & radiant skin. I just want to add that all of these face washes are quite effective on acne-prone skin, yet extremely gentle in general so they could really be used on any skin type.

1) KISS MY FACE ~ Exfoliating Face Wash

This face wash is gentle with a surfactant base of Decyl Glucoside. Its natural fruit and other plant extracts & oils work to gently, yet effectively cleanse the skin.

For me, it seems to have a calming effect and was  definitely not over-drying! It does not foam up much, but it’s important to remember that a foamy face wash doesn’t mean a better face wash.

  • Consistency: Jelly-like
  • Price: $15.00
  • Size: 4 fl oz

2) ANDALOU NATURALS ~ Citrus Kombucha Cleansing Gel

This face wash lasts a little longer, as a little goes a long way. Two or so pumps each time you watch your face will get the job done. This one foams a ton! Not necessarily a good or bad thing, just a different characteristic of this particular face wash. It actually gets in my eyes a lot and it BURNS! Don’t know if its from all the foam, or if it’s because I am reckless.. This face wash cleanses my face well, rinses cleanly, and is made of fantastic and natural ingredients, not to mention, it smells nice too. :) citrus_kombucha_cleansing_gel-_pair

Now I want to say that everyone is different, all skin is different, and we each react differently to certain ingredients. So keep that mind, but if you are struggling to find the right face wash, these are worth a shot! And that’s coming from someone who has very reactive skin.
