Master Cleanse


As a beauty writer, I’ve sampled all manner of cleansers–from cheapo brands to pricey elixirs housed in glass decanters–and have found something to be desired from nearly all. Some made my oily-ish skin too dry and flake-prone. Some felt way too heavy and left behind a greasy residue. But after years of searching, I’ve settled on two that I absolutely adore. And guess what? You can score both at your nearest Walgreens.

This stuff came recommended by my dermatologist–and boy, was her advice spot-on. Super-gentle and non-pore-clogging, it leaves my skin incredibly soft but not greasy.

Another dermatologist fave, this cleanser is extremely mild but won’t cause breakouts. There’s also a formula for oily skin.
