If you’ve got oily skin (like me) then you know that selecting the right products for your skin is crucial. Not being aware of what you’re putting on your face usually causes break outs and more shine to the face (something that is just not acceptable). Those of you with oily skin know that it’ll either be a good, shine-free day starting with the first product you put on your face at the beginning of the day: your cleanser. I’ve been through an abundant of products over the years. Some good, some really bad but I like to think that through my experience I can help you all with oily skin as well. Here are my favorite cleansers of all time that will not only remove dirt and oil from the face but leave your skin both clean and matte all day long! Check it out below!

E.L.F. Superclarify Cleanser, $6

E.L.F. is known for providing us with the best products, at the best price. This cleanser is no different. It’s so soothing on the face and contains niacinamide – which is an ingredient that locks in that moisture so that your skin is not dried out (and not greasy) throughout the day.

CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser, $15

This cleanser is one of my holy grails from the drugstore. It not only keeps shine away frmo the face but I swear it clears up any break outs I may have. Anytime I see a break out coming, I use this cleanser to help fight it off.

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser, $8

Another great product from the drugstore is this facial cleanser by Neutrogena – which is oil-free! I’m a sucker for great smelling products but it’s hard to find a good product, with a great scent that won’t irritate my skin. This cleanser even contains salicylic acid to help treat break outs. I always find myself going back to it.

Akura Wellnes Gentle Balance Cleanser, $22

I love how gentle, yet powerful this cleanser is by Akura Wellness. It’s perfect blend of ingredients has not only removed bacteria on the face for me but it brings hydration back to the face. It’s super soothing on the face, leaving it fresh and clean without stripping the skin’s natural oils from the face.

Tatcha The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser, $38

If you’re willing to spend a little extra on a face cleanser that will not let you down, this is it. First off, can we talk about how gorgeous Tatcha’s packaging is? Besides that, this oil-free gel cleanser is so gentle on the skin. It contains little beads that are made with Japanese luffa fruit to exfoliate the skin a bit while cleaning the face. It’s truly like a spa at home.
