A quality cleanser can do wonders for your skin during Hong Kong's hot and humid summers. Whether your skin type is oily, dry or combination, you need an effective face wash that will work hard to purify and exfoliate, so you can get rid of all the sweat, dust and unwanted debris clogging up your face.
Need some suggestions? Here are seven of the best face cleansers on the market for anyone who’s looking to change up their skincare routine this summer:
YSL Forever Youth Liberator mousse nettoyante cleansing foam
Suitable for all skin types, this cleanser makes washing your face a treat. Its creamy consistency lathers into a fine foam upon contact with water, removing impurities and all traces of make-up. You’ll find your skin glowing and clearer than ever.
L’Occitaine Reine Blanche illuminating scrub
L’Occitaine's scrub gently exfoliates and illuminates your skin using the Reine Blanche Complex, formulated from the Reine des Prés flower which naturally contains salicylic acid. The mild face scrub completely refreshes and clears the skin from dead cells and pollution residues accumulated throughout the day.
Dermalogica daily superfoliant
This powder exfoliant might be a bit of a mess to use, but it's worth it—you’ll have skin as smooth as a baby’s bum afterwards. The powder formula activates upon contact with water, releasing powerful enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids.
Armani Prima oil-in-gel foaming cleanser
Armani’s Prima is an all-in-one, oil-in-gel cleanser that combines the benefits of a foaming cleanser and make-up removing oil. The formula works even on waterproof make-up, and is enriched with almond oil, the secret to gentle, soft on skin make-up removal.
Givenchy Blanc Divin brightening purifying foam
Givenchy's foam wash is formulated with a combination of natural extracts from white-flowering plants and vitamin C, and will give your skin a soft but thorough cleanse after a long day out, as well as help minimise the appearance of pores.
Fresh Soy face cleanser
Perfect for all skin types, Fresh’s multi-tasking cleanser instantly diminishes undesirable impurities and wipes your face clean of makeup residue. Amino acid-rich soy proteins help maintain elasticity, whilst rosewater and cucumber extracts calm and soothe the skin.
Lancôme Energie de Vie cleanser
If you're one to skimp on sleep, Lancôme's Energie de Vie cleanser will have you rejuvenated overnight. This anti-fatigue, purifying foam cleanser will also give your skin an extra shot of energy in the morning, so you can almost look like you got your full eight hours.
