The problem I have with many cleansers designed for acne-prone skin is how drying they are. My skin felt stripped and tight and it just wan’t a good feeling. Plus, my skin would start flaking around my eyes and my mouth and parts of my chin and forehead because it was so dry. It was like the cleansers just sucked the moisture out of my skin. If you have the same problem with your cleansers, check out my list of the best cleansers for acne-prone skin.
The Best Cleansers (like ever!)
My first suggestion is the Biore Charcoal cleanser. I’ve been using this cleanser for almost two years now. And it’s amazing. It lathers really well and leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. Take one pump in your palm and massage the product on to your face. When you take a minute to really massage the cleanser in to your skin, you’ll get a light tingly feeling. For me, this feeling is ahhhmazing because I can feel my pores getting de-clogged. After using this cleanser, make sure you grab a super hydrating moisturizer because this cleanser can leave your skin feeling a little tight and dry.

DermaE Charcoal and Algae cleanser is my current favorite. Much like the Biore cleanser, this is a deep cleansing cleanser (Try to say that five times fast…) that helps unclog pores and keep your pores clean. What I love about this cleanser is that it is much less drying and stripping than the Biore charcoal cleanser. The whole DermaE line is gentle and great for sensitive or acne-prone skin.
When my face needs a little pick-me-up, I love using the DermaE charcoal mask. And this mask is a great dupe for the GlamGlow Supermud Clearing mask. For more info on this dupe, click here.
I also love the Soap and Glory Cleansing milk. This is the perfect example of Youtube-made-me-buy-it. I heard Tati from GlamLife Guru rave about this cleanser and Zoe from Zoella and Louis from Sprinkle of Glitter all love Soap and Glory Products. So, when I saw this cleanser in Ulta. I had to try it. And it doesn’t disappoint. I love the scent of this cleanser. It’s peaches and cream and smells heavenly! This cleanser is super gentle, doesn’t break me out, and removes most of my makeup.
The BEST series continues…
That’s it. Those are my best cleansers for acne-prone skin. I don’t experiment with too many cleansers out there because once I find one that works, I just keep using it. But I have been testing out a variety of serums, toners, and essences so be on the lookout for that post coming soon!
