A Hydrating Cleanser That Totally Removes Makeup
The Ordinary's Squalane Cleanser is focused on two things: Removing every trace of makeup, and making sure skin is left feeling soft and smooth, not tight and stripped. When warmed in hands and then applied to skin, it transforms from a balm to an oil to sweep away makeup and impurities while moisturizing skin.

One of Mario Badescu's most popular products for a reason, this face mist instantly refreshes and soothes skin with aloe, rosewater, and herbs for a healthy, even-looking complexion — plus, it smells like fresh roses.

A Charcoal-Infused Cleansing Sponge
This natural sponge is made from the root of the Japanese konjac plant and treated skin-clarifying charcoal to make for one gently exfoliating, complexion cleansing cleanser. It's easy to use — simply wet it with warm water until it feels soft, then massage onto skin in a circular motion to sweep away dead skin and impurities. Plus, since it's good to use for up to two or three months, at $12 it's an extremely cost-effective buy.
A Pore-Purifying Foaming Face Wash
This fragrance-free cleanser from Paula's Choice is great for those with blemish-prone and sensitive skin, alike. The formula foams up to whisk away debris without stripping skin and dissolves any excess oil that can cause breakouts, for more clarified skin with each wash.
