Looking for a good, affordable cleanser

Hi! Can anyone recommend a good cleanser. I've been struggling to find something that works for the longest time and I'm starting to break out really bad. I'm 16 and I have oily skin, obviously acne-prone, and I get the pimples that are really painful under the skin.


If anyone could recommend an affordable cleanser or even treatment that would be great!

You can try out Eucerin cleansers!! there's different cleansers depending on your skin types and skin concerns, find one that works for you here: Eucerin Cleansers for Different Skin Types and Concerns

Re: Looking for a good, affordable cleanser

I have bought many expensive cleansers before, but my tried and true is still a drug store brand CeraVe. They have a variety depending on your skin care needs, I have been using the green hydrating bottle. CeraVe is a great brand with many fabulous products, but I think their cleanser is a major stand out. Enjoy

It's hard to know what affordability is to different people, but I love philosphy's purity cleanser and also first aid beauty's facial cleaner. Depending on the rest of your routine, a light exfoliating serum or pad might best help with the acne.

@abbys13I really like the Vichy Purete Thermale 3-in-1 step cleanser. Costs $19.50 for 200 ml; $23 for 300 ml. Good for sensitive skin.


Vichy's description: Our best-selling cleanser. A purifying milk, toner and eye make-up remover combined in one convenient, lightweight formula.

@abbys13  One of the best affordable cleansers I’ve tried is SEPHORA COLLECTION - Clean Skin Gel - Cleanse + Tone. I also really like PEACE OUT - Acne Healing Dots.

Re: Looking for a good, affordable cleanser

I love acne dots and have tried this one. but I find cosrx works even better and so much cheaper. You don't feel guilty going through them.
