Cleansing is the foundation to any good skincare routine, but the best cleansers have a plethora of nourishing, skin-loving ingredients, and the ones we love the most, do even more than just wash the stuff off your face. These cleansing hybrids are the future of face washes, as far as we’re concerned. After all, we’re all busy and need products that don’t just get one job done, but many. Read on for some of our favorite K-beauty cleansers that will also make your skin look and feel better.
Jullai’s do-it-all, one-step oil cleanser features everything we love about this brand. The star Super 12 Complex is created with Jullai’s signature “slow-brew method,” where each ingredient is soaked in cold water for seven days to naturally capture its maximum benefits. The blend of powerful, multi-tasking antioxidants in this light oil cleanser is seriously impressive — apple extract helps control impurities that can cause breakouts, green tea seed oil is purifying and refining, and ingredients like chia seed and cauliflower extract firm and revitalize while defending the skin’s barrier from environmental aggressors.
We’re firm believers in keeping at least one cleansing water on hand at all times — after all, one never knows when they might be sink-less and in need of a cleanse. Been there, done that times a million. Blithe’s salty potion sweeps away makeup while purifying and detoxifying skin thanks to a 44% concentration of pink Himalayan salt. Don’t worry — it won’t dry skin out. In fact, added botanical extracts work to nourish and soften skin, leaving it clean, hydrated, and glowing.
If you’ve never tried a powder cleanser, prepare have your mind blown. These texture-transforming products are an essential skincare hack. The level of exfoliation they provide is totally customizable based on how much water you add before application. If you choose to add less, you’ve got a grittier enzyme scrub. More water and you’ve got a sensorially delightful light, frothy foam. And, thanks to the totally waterless formula, they offer very clean formulations that are low on preservatives. Leegeehaam’s contains bromelain, a gentle ingredient that helps reduce redness and inflammation, plus antioxidant, antimicrobial, and skin-conditioning camellia oil.
Let’s get one thing straight: Cleansing pads are nothing like the makeup wipes you might be used to. They’re gentler, provide a more thorough cleanse, and moisturize your complexion, whereas most wipes can leave skin feeling sticky and dried out. We love these ingenious, travel-friendly cleansing pads because they have two sides that have completely different benefits for your skin. Side one has ridges that provide a gentle exfoliation as well as grip makeup and impurities to effortlessly wash them away. Side two’s smooth texture provides a quick toning treatment that not only won’t strip the skin but actually makes it more hydrated thanks to moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid.
We so wholeheartedly support the idea that cleansers should also work as skincare treatments, we made ours provide a long list of benefits. The newly reformulated Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser is our love letter to hybrid cleansers — we loaded it with a trifecta of must-have, multi-tasking ingredients. Antioxidant-rich blueberry fights free radicals and soothes skin, while a gentle blend of lactic and glycolic acids helps de-gunk pores, and hyaluronic acid ensures that skin is left hydrated. In addition to cleansing, it can be used as a mask, and it enhances the moisturizing and brightening powers of any of the products that you apply afterward. It’s basically a full skincare routine in a bottle.
Now that you’re hip to the hybrid cleanser movement, we think it’s time you asked yourself: What has your cleanser done for you lately?
