Question of the Week: What are your favorite types of facial cleansers? (Gel, self-foaming, cream, oil, cloths, etc.)
Answer: I love creamy, moisturizing cleansers that don’t dry out my skin. Zenmed Cleanser and Abbey St. Clare are two of my favorites.

      I don’t have Rosacea per say, but I do have irritatingly combination skin (very dry patches and very oily patches) along with what seems to be skin allergies (I get rash like areas easily). I’ve read good things about Cetaphil and how gentle it is. If you’ve tried it, would you recommend it as a daily cleanser? I generally cleanse 3 times a day, and I need something that’s gentle, fragrance free and doesn’t make my skin crack before I can get to my moisturizer.

        My dermatologist recommended Cetaphil to me and I used it until I found a cruelty free moisturizing cleanser. I use the Zenmed Cream Cleanser right now and I’ve also used Abbey St. Clare Aniba Cleanser. I have to have a moisturizing cleanser, so I know what you mean!

        • Mahdi Martin

          The Aniba Cleanser looks very appealing to me, and seems to address all of my skin issues…However Zenmed looks nice too. Zenmed may be the better option for me based on price, however I really just want the best product. The next thing I buy will be cleanser since I’m down to using samples. Maybe that’s why my skin’s freaking out!

            I think the Zenmed is one you will like. The texture is really nice and soothing to me.

            • Mahdi Martin

              Thank you, master decision maker! I’m going with that.

        Cetaphil is good for sensitive skin so is Boots expert anti blemish cleansing foam or just the regular cleansing foam. But I think Paula’s Choice products would be ideal for all of your skin concerns. The customer service is excellent and they can point you in the right direction for what you would need. Also washing your face to often can make many skin problems worse especially dryness and irritation. Try just washing 2 times a day once in the morning and once before bedtime.

        • Mahdi Martin

          Thank you for these recommendations too. Although Cetaphil’s not cruelty free, I might have to use it in the interim until I can afford something better. I am literally down to bar soap. It’s horrible! At least my car is running again.

      For the longest time I used a cream cleanser followed by a cleansing scrub, but just recently I switched to oil cleansing (with coconut oil!) followed by a face wash.

        I need to try my All Natural Face cleansers with coconut oil. Coconut oil has been great for everything I’ve tried so far.

      OCM followed by either Cetaphil bar soap or goat milk soap.

        Which oil do you use? Coconut? Olive?

        • http://cinseven13.blogspot.com/ cinseven13

          olive oil mixed w/vit E to remove eye makeup only, then apricot kernel/avocado/something else I forget what I put in there. Not olive or castor though, too drying. But the olive oil works great for eye makeup, as does coconut.

      Nu Skin pure cleansing gel.

        I’ll have to research that one! I haven’t heard of it!

    • Cindi

      Noxzema cream or Ponds Cleansing Cream for creams and Neutrogena facial bar for a bar soap. I love the scent of the Neutrogena as it brings back warm memories from my youth.

        Aww, I wish it was CF so I could give it a try.
