Game of Foams: 6 Foaming Cleansers For Every Skin Type
In search of a foaming cleanser that is formulated to meet the needs of your skin type and concerns? Look no further! From dry skin and oily skin to sensitive skin and tired-looking skin, we share six foaming face washes for every skin type, ahead.
When it comes to personal skin care, not all formulas are created equal. In fact, if you walk the aisles of your local drugstore or beauty supply, you’ll find that many are made to cater to specific skin types and concerns— such as, oily skin, sensitive skin, dry skin, dull skin… you get the picture. That being said, if you aren’t using skin care products that are made with your specific skin type in mind, you might want to consider making the switch. Customizing your skin care routine with products that are formulated to soothe your sensitive skin, hydrate your dry skin, mattify your oily skin, and so on, can help you address your skin care concerns. To help you get started, we’re sharing six foaming cleansers for every skin type (and concern). Find out what foaming face wash you need in your daily skin care routine, below.
SENSITIVE SKIN: LA ROCHE-POSAY MICELLAR FOAMING WATER
ICYMI: Micellar water is one of our favorite ways to cleanse our skin. So, when we discovered that drugstore brand, La Roche-Posay offers a budget-friendly foaming cleanser that is formulated with micellar water and gentle enough to use on sensitive skin, our micellar water-obsessed hearts skipped a few beats. Just like micellar water, this foaming cleanser can purify and soothe skin while respecting its physiological pH balance. Apply this refreshing water-based foaming face wash to your complexion morning and night for a gentle— yet effective— cleanse.

Oily skin requires a foaming cleanser that can target pore-clogging dirt and debris, all while working to keep excess sebum at bay. And one of our favorite foaming cleansers to use on oily skin is The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser. Enriched with the brand’s Community Trade tea tree oil from Kenya, this foaming face wash cleanses the skin and can help keep excess oil at bay.
