What Do You Use to Wash Your Face?

92% of women use facial cleansers on a daily basis, and the overwhelming majority come packaged in plastic. 


We'd love to change that, but we need your help!

So tell us, what's your daily cleansing routine? And what would it take for you to try something new?

Let us know - comment below - together we can turn this plastic tide around!

  • I have been trying different things out from foaming face washes to face oils to Norwex cloths

  • As a white woman with oily, sensitive skin who wears sunscreen daily, I require a cleanser that meets the following criteria:
    1. liquid, low ph (4.5-5; bar soaps are too alkaline, and generally have comedogenic bases)
    2. no irritating essential oils (many “natural” cleansers tend to be full of essential oils that cause skin reactions)
    3. effective enough to remove makeup, and oil-based cleansers as part of a double-cleanse
    4. vegan

    In the morning, I usually do a gentle massage with micellar water, rinse, and moisturize if necessary.
    In the evening and/or after working out, I use derma-e hydrating gentle cleanser (https://dermae.com/collections/cleansers/products/hydrating-gentle-cleanser?variant=26219167688).
    It meets all of the criteria, and doesn’t hurt my skin (though I wish it didn’t have the unnecessary added fragrance).

    Those of you familiar with r/skincareaddication know that many people love the CeraVe cleansers (https://www.cerave.com/skincare/cleansers) because they are inexpensive, generally non-irritating, non-comedogenic, and effective at removing makeup. All of these cleansers have recyclable plastic bottles, but the pumps definitely end up in landfills. I’d gladly swap my cleanser for one in a non-plastic container if I the alternative works, is vegan, and doesn’t cause allergic reactions or breakouts.
