Beauty 101: 5 Gentle Facial Cleansers for Spring & Summer


Hello beauties!!! Have  you updated your skin cleanser list for Spring/Summer yet? Well I have a few that have become true staples for my skin care routine that I think you should know about. To give more detail about my skin- I have dry/sensitive skin. I can get oily at times, mostly near my eye lids and forehead, but for the most part I resonate most with dry skin. 

I try to use cleaners that are for one gentle -my skin hates anything harsh, has too much fragrance, or that is drying. SO, with that being said these cleaners have lived up to being great options for keeping my skin clean and fresh for the Spring and Summer weather. For the winter I definitely change it up and will do a post for that later in the year! 

Ok, let's get into these cleaners...

First up is one that's been in my "skin" game since I was in high school. 

1. Purity by Philosophy

This product is great for removing make-up and getting a really good cleanse on the first wash. (perfect for my lazy days) It has a soft smell and has a mild lather. I absolutely love this cleanser and is perfect if you have sensitive skin. Grab the Purity cleanser from Sephora here!

[[Story Time- My mom actually won a contest back when I was little to fly out to California to film with Philosophy and to give her testimony. This is literally my Mom's bestie when it comes to facial cleansers. She's been using the product/brand for so long, so it was really cool to see her highlighted and gifted with that opportunity. She looked AMAZING too, just to give her some props]]

2. Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser by Aveeno

This is one of those drug store/Target gems!! I love this product for when my complexion/skin has blemishes and just needs to be toned. Great if you're lacking balance. Meaning dry/oily spots, pimples, & or dull skin in particular. It gives you a very refreshing feeling and has a soft eucalyptus mint smell. It has an amazing lather and is great for when a breakout occurs because it has a salicylic acid treatment with soy extracts included. (Yesssss!) 
Go to Target here and try this one out! 

3.  Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser by Boscia

 Now this cleanser here is a definite keeper! A pricer option, but worth it. I've been using this cleanser for some years now and it proves to be the perfect detox for when Aveeno isn't doing the job. It's a warming cleanser powered by charcoal that helps to minimize the look of pores, wash away impurities, ban excess oil, and brighten your complexion. Now if you don't think that isn't a winning mix, then sis you need to catch up!!! This is my one stop cleanser for when I want a mix of the Purity and Aveeno results but with a super cool warming effect and deeper cleanse. You have to try this! Head over to Sephora here to grab a bottle.

4. Clearly Brighter Argan Nut Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser by Garnier Skin Active

This here was a very unexpected find for me. I was in Tjmaxx one afternoon and I'm always checking out their beauty section.  This gem was hiding and what caught my attention was that it was a gentle exfoliator that focused on brightening. This was perfect for me because I could tell my skin was building up dead skin cells and it was getting hard to retain moisture. I can literally use this scrub everyday (although I don't) and get no irritation. It's that gentle, but gets the job DONE. It gives the perfect clean slate and is super affordable. I found a 2-pack here at Amazon & it's on Prime! Try it out!

5. Super Food Antioxidant Cleanser by Youth to The People

Last but definitely not least, is a new cleanser I'm getting acquainted with that's packed with antioxidants and vitamins. I didn't want to skimp any on how dope the ingredients actually are so here's the deets straight from YTTP.

- Kale: A leafy veg that is a must-have for more than just your morning juice; rich in skin-loving phytonutrients and vitamins C, E, and K to strengthen and leave skin glowing. 
- Spinach: A lightweight skin soother with cooling properties and rich with conditioning essential fatty acids.
- Green Tea: An anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient that keeps skin clear. 

So if that doesn't make you want to try the product, I don't know what else to say, lol (well actually I do) I can say that it's pretty much like your daily green juice packed with cold pressed antioxidants that also helps with cystic acne. Which, unfortunately I do deal with at times. So check this one out for yourself here at Sephora and let me know what you think!

Leave me any of your fave cleansers & tips your swear by in the comments. I love to hear from you guys!
