My criterias for a staple face wash is that it shouldn’t be over drying, never leave dry patches around nose, suitable all year long, affordable, sulphate free & laziness friendly ( meaning even if I dont do anything more than washing my face at night my skin doesn’t wakes up feeling bad). So these are what I think work best for my combination and sometimes sensitive skin:
1. La Roche Posay Effaclar H Dermosoothing Deep Cleansing Foam : this is way better than the gel effaclar and does leaves skin feeling squeaky clean.
2. Avene Cleanance K : a good basic product
3. Avene Gentle gel cleanser : its not something which leaves skin squeaky clean but very nice for irritated/ sensitive skin days, I like using it after using clay masks which leave skin very tight and stripped.
4. Caudalie foaming face wash: love the smell of this one and its my current favourite with nice ingredients like grape extracts & chamomile.
