Whether you are outright obsessed with skincare or believe in a quick routine, there’s no denying that cleansing is an essential step in having a clear complexion. However, using the wrong formula can wreak major havoc on your skin. Several face washes are quite harsh and leave the skin feeling tight or inflamed. For dry, sensitive or normal complexions, this can result in flaky skin or redness, whilst those with oily skin are likely to trigger an overproduction of sebum! Luckily, there are some incredible cleansers available that won’t cause any of these side-effects. Scroll below to see them all.

1. Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser Mashobra Honey, Lemon & Rosewater

If you aren’t sure of your skin type, consider picking up a bottle of this face wash. The infusion of honey keeps clogged pores and acne at bay, whilst moisturising your skin. Since it also contains rosewater and lime, you can count on your face feeling calm, refreshed and hydrated.
