Can I use this a a first step cleaner?

I just bought the Farmacy Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser 5 oz/150 mLto use as a first cleanser, followed up by a foam cleanser. Is this a good idea and will it work just as well as an oil based one? Will using both cleansers cause damage to my skin since both are meant to wash the face,  should I stick to normal oil based cleanser?

This is not a first cleanser, @OlgaRss . You can use it in place of your foaming cleanser, but you'd still need something oil based to remove makeup and sunscreen. The problem with using multiple water-based cleansers is that you run the risk of stripping your skin of natural oils and drying it out.

Thanks for the reply! Do you have any suggestions for oil based cleansers?

My personal favorite is Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil 6 oz/ 180 mL

but I've also had good luck with The Face Shop's Rice Water Bright Light Cleansing Oil. Clinique's Take the Day Off balm and oil are both good options as well.
