Top K-Beauty Cleansing Products You Should Try

It’s true that sometimes it is too overwhelming to choose what is the right cleansing product that suits your skin. With so many types of cleansing products available in the market, it is best to understand first the difference between each type before purchasing one. We have listed here all the common types of cleansing products to help you get the right product.

Cleansing Oil

Ideal skin types: Normal skin, dry skin, and combination skin

Oil-based cleansing is not suitable for deep cleansing, but it is best to use as a “pre-cleanser. That’s why the Korean beauty skincare regimen recommends using a cleansing oil to makeup and dirt on your face before using a regular deep-cleansing product. It is proven to be gentle on the skin and does not cause skin dryness.  

Cleansing Balm

Ideal skin types: Normal skin and dry skin

Although Cleansing balms share the same product properties as oil-based cleansing, they typically have a more solid and creamy texture with nourishing ingredients. They are perfect for removing makeup as they melt into a more oily texture on the skin, leaving more radiant skin. It also has no-rinse and rinse-off options, so you can leave it on your face after you apply it. 

Cleansing Water/Micellar

Ideal skin types: Normal skin, oily skin, dry skin, and sensitive skin

When it comes to K-beauty cleansing products, Micellar cleansing water is one of the lightest ones as it has a texture similar to plain water. It is only new to the cleansing family, but it quickly gained popularity due to its cleansing properties and its multi-purpose—cleansing, toner, and makeup remover. It contains tiny micelles (oil molecules) that remove dirt and makeup. Same with an oil-based cleanser, it doesn’t need to be rinsed off and is commonly applied using cotton pads.

Cleansing Gel

Ideal skin types: Oily skin, normal skin, combination skin, and acne-prone skin

A Cleansing Gel has a clear, lightweight, and jelly-like consistency that provides deep cleansing even with one wash. It does not only remove all makeup excess, oil, and dirt, but it also unclogs pores, preventing acne formulation. Gel cleanser has a moisturizing effect with essential hydrating ingredients that makes the skin look fresh and radiant. But, unlike water-based and oil-based cleansers, it needs to be rinsed off once applied. 

Cleansing Foam

Ideal skin types: Oily and combination skin

Another great option for K-beauty cleansing products is the foam cleanser. It usually comes in either gel or cream formula with foamy consistency once mixed with water. The creamy or gel foam cleanses the accumulated dirt, makeup, and oil on your face, keeping your skin matte for a long period.

What K-Beauty Cleansing Product Should I Use?

Before buying any K-beauty cleansing products at the store make sure that you also know your skin type. Getting a cleanser that is not suited to your skin type can cause acne breakouts, clogging, dehydration, and other skin sensitivity. It is also advisable to check the ingredients of each product to avoid skin allergies and other skin issues.
