The Different Types of Cleansers

The Balms
Balms are useful because they both cleanse and moisturise your skin at the same time. They are best used on oily skin, but they are generally more expensive than other types.

The Wipes 
Wipes are perhaps the fastest and simplest way to cleanse. They are best if you don’t wear a lot of makeup or just want to quickly freshen up. They can also be used to fix up stray makeup, or to soak up residue after using a creamy cleanser.

The Exfoliator
Exfoliating cleansers (not the same as actual exfoliants) contain certain acids that get deep into your skin to clean your pores. They are very thorough, and generally should be used twice a week at most to avoid drying out your skin. They work well on all skin types.

The Creams
Creams are very slippery and packed with oil to soothe dry skin. They aren’t as thorough when it comes to cleaning your pores and remove much less surface oil than other types. Luckily, new milkier formulas have been put on the shelves, generally oil free and gently cleanse and hydrate sensitive skin very well. 

The Gels
Gels are usually the cleansers that foam and lather, working very well on your skin. They’re a little bit more messy than the other types, but they are super effective at fighting blemish-causing bacteria.
