What kind of cleanser should I use?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have pretty sensitive skin so it gets irritated easily and I only break out on my nose but sometimes on my chin and forehead too. My sink is always cluttered so I like products that are just one step (one bottle) and preferably affordable on a college student budget.

Also, I started wearing VERY light make up (more like tinted moisturizer) so do I need make up remover or is a cleanser enough?

Thanks in advance!

PS-I'm LOVING this thread!

I don't think that you need make-up remover for that....
Ponds actually has a creme cleanser that is very gentle and leaves the face feeling clean... you can get it at Target, walmard

I break out easily and have sensitive skin. Neutrogena Foaming Face Wash is great. I don't use a makeup remover, I just wash twice with the face wash (at least 30 seconds each time). It leaves the skin pretty clean. There's no makeup residue when I use toner afterwards.

You can get it at Ulta (since they always have those $3.50 off $10 purchase coupons) for pretty cheap.

I agree that you don't need a makeup remover unless you are using it on your eye makeup. I recommend PURPOSE cleanser- it is fantastic for sensitive skin and is thick so you only have to use a little. I think it is like $6 or $7 and it is sold at drugstores and grocery stores. It takes all of my makeup off and doesn't dry my skin or leave a film. I love it.

I have used Cetaphil for the past 4 years....I've got sensitive skin and I break out with acne if I'm not careful about what I put on my face. It's great, and, like Valerie said you can get this at Ulta too and use their coupon! Usually you can find it in your local Sunday paper. Give it a try! And yeah, face wash should be just fine for taking off your makeup.

^i broke out even more with cetaphil, how weird.

liz, i have the same problem. i use dermalogica's daily microfoliant. it's a little pricey, but it's soo worth it! (there's a thread about it somewhere)

I swear by Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. Both the foam kind and the liquid kind work well, but the liquid one has worked better for me. I have used this since I was 12 and I will probably never use anything else.

I used cetaphil for years. DErmatologists recommend it too. I know use Philosophy purity made simple. I think it is very similar to cetaphil.

I have very sensitive skin as well and I use Clinique

Sorry, but I have heard that Clinique is BAD stuff! Full of skin drying alcohols. I think there are TONS of anti-clinique people out there.

I use Dermalogica (special cleansing gel and daily microfoliant) and my skin is the best it's ever been. I never even have any breakouts anymore, thank god I personally didn't like Cetaphil at all, but I really prefer a gel cleanser that rinses off very clean to give me a squeaky clean feeling

^Ditto. I heard Clinique and Mac were the worst for your skin. I can't bring myself to throw out their eye shadow though...

I use Marcelle, 0 frag, oils, soap free. It removes makeup and makes your face feel squeeky clean. Do you have Eucerin where you are? Any local drug mart should have it...An amazing line for sensitive skin types and highly recommend. Pretty affordable but still a quality product...

As for your tinted moisturizer, I don't think a make-up remover is necessary considering you are not an avid makeup wearer. If you have eye makeup and such, then I would suggest using that in conjunction with the cleanser, but just get one that's a makeup remover as well. That should be enough for removal of your tinted moisturizer. Avoid fragrances or oils which would probably encourage some type of reaction considering you are sensitive and all...+ you don't want it to sting your eyes. Good luck.

oo, i use purpose face wash as well! LOVE IT! i've been using it for almost 7 years or so now, and i find that it washes all my makeup off, unless i have some crazy heavy duty eye makeup on (then i use eye makeup remover first, i like rimmel's). my skin is pretty sensitive too, and purpose doesn't break me out and is super gentle. looooove it!
