You may be tempted to rub extra hard when you cleanse your face to get rid of makeup, dirt and grime, but the pulling and dragging action can actually cause wrinkles and irritate skin. Use these comfortable cleanser that lather well without stripping skin of its natural oils, so your skin feels fresh and clean without being too tight or dry

1. The oil-in-foam 

An oil essence suspended in a foam, Senka Perfect Oil Whip ($17.90 for 150g) dissolves makeup and sweeps up dirt that has accumulated in the course of the day, giving skin a deep cleanse without leaving a sticky or oily feeling. 

2. The skin-smoother

Microparticles and soapwort extract in RMK Clear Cream Soap ($50 for 115g) are meant to help regulate sebum production (more tips to keep skin oil-free here) as well as remove dirt and dead cells to reveal clearer skin. Plus, the cleanser has yuzu and fermented pear juice extracts to moisturise.

3. The purifier

One pump of Biore Marshmallow Whip Acne Care Facial Wash ($13.90 for 150ml) is all you need for a fluffy dollop of microbubbles that penetrate deep into pores to remove impurities and oil without drying out and irritating sensitive, acne-prone skin (try these blemish-busting face masks). 

4. The skin-brightener

Not only does Albion Excia Cell Clarity Essence Foam ($90 for 150ml) eliminate dirt and dead skin cells, it is also said to remove a waste product in cells caused by ageing and pollution. This allows cells to function more effectively, and helps boost the efficacy of brightening skincare applied after cleansing.

5. The anti-ageing foam

Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Extra Creamy Cleansing Foam ($80 for 120ml) has red pine oil to maintain moisture and oil levels. The rich cream lathers into a smooth foam that thoroughly cleanses your skin of impurities. 

6. The sweet double-cleanser

Enriched with acacia honey, Lancome Miel-en-mousse ($75 for 200ml) has a honey-like consistency that transforms into a mousse when it is emulsified with water. It dissolves makeup and impurities, leaving skin soft and hydrated after you rinse it off.
