16 best cleansers for oily, dry and combination skin, whatever your budget

As a must-have in your regimen, these are the hero products to keep skin clean and comfortable throughout the year

The essentials for any skincare routine, regardless of skin type, are a cleanser, moisturiser, and SPF. Get those three right and your skin will thank you for it. Cleansing is the first step to looking after your skin’s health, keeping it clean, ensuring make-up is effectively removed and providing a canvas for the rest of your products to get to work. 

If you wear make-up, double cleansing is an effective way to ensure every scrap of foundation, contour, and mascara is removed too, which involves cleansing with an oil or balm-based product first, followed by a second cleanse that’s gel or cream based. Finding the right one however can be a tricky task, as there’s certainly no shortage of options, from creams, milks, gels, foams, balms and oils to choose from.

So, we’ve done the hard work for you and handpicked the best money can buy, whether you’re hoping to keep blemishes and oiliness at bay or soothe dry areas and spots of dehydration.  

From brilliant budget beauty buys to luxurious treats, these are the 16 cleansers we can’t do without.
