The foundation of good skin care is the best possible cleanser you can find. A good cleanser does much more than remove grime and makeup. It will help soften the skin, tighten pores, reset your pH balance, reduce sensitivity, control breakouts and deliver valuable nutrients. A truly fabulous cleanser is one that doesn't use harsh surfactants, but natural and gentle cleansing agents, and provides enough anti-aging and skin conditioning ingredients that it doubles as a mask. A great cleanser is your desert island product; it is the only absolute must-have in your regimen. Here are the top five facial cleansers of 2015.

  • I Pekar Facial Cleanser

    I Pekar Facial Cleanser ($65 in the shop). This is one of the best cleansers that I have ever used and has been a welcome addition to my regimen during a particularly harsh winter. It is gentle, non-drying, and effective. It is a creamy, but light cleanser that doesn't produce suds (the surfactants are coconut-derived) and lubricates well on damp skin. The star ingredient is 100% raw honey — an antioxidant, natural healer and antimicrobial. Willow bark and aspen bark are rich in salycin,an aspirin-like substance, which is considered to be analgesic, anti-inflammatory, calming, and healing. With a formula free of nasties, the preservative used is radish root.

  • Innarah Treatment Cleanser Daily Cleanser

    Innarah Treatment Cleanser Daily Cleanser ($65 in the shop). This cleanser uses a base of "hydraHEAL water", water with a high concentration of magnesium and minerals, to remove toxins and dead skin cells. This is a great cleanser that is tough on makeup, but gentle on the skin. The roster of natural ingredients includes mangosteen, basil, acacia, grape, borage, and comfrey extracts. Innarah uses a special fermentation process to intensify its plant extracts.

  • BRAD Biophotonic Sea Minerals Purify Healing Detoxifying Gel Cleanser

    BRAD Biophotonic Sea Minerals Purify Healing Detoxifying Gel Cleanser ($45 in the shop). If your skin is out of sorts, this is the cleanser for you. Not to mention, this is definitely a cleanser that wants to be a serum when it grows up. There's an amino acid blend to strengthen the skin and algae extract to increase cell regeneration. Irritation, redness, and discoloration are treated with MSM. With a slew of nourishing oils, this cleanser almost makes your moisturizer redundant.

  • Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Active Moisture Vitamin B Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover

    Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Active Moisture Vitamin B Cleansing Oil & Makeup Remover ($42 in the shop). Cleansing Oil is a bit of a misnomer because when it encounters water, it becomes a milky, creamy cleanser. Also, it doesn't leave an oily residue after rinsing it off or wiping it away. This is also a makeup remover par excellence. The cleanser's vitamin B is found in the curcubita pepo or pumpkin seed oil (which is rich in vitamin A, C and E), papain and carica papaya or papaya seed oil (also rich in vitamin C and minerals) and provide antioxidants and fatty acids.

  • Sevani Ageless Radiance Refining AHA Cleanser

    Sevani Ageless Radiance Refining AHA Cleanser ($39 in the shop). Deservedly a TIA bestseller, this is an exfoliating and brightening cleanser suitable for sensitive skins. Multitasking as a cleanser or a mask, it has glycolic acid and willow bark that brightens dull, discolored skin. The base is aloe vera juice with avocado and argan oils. Antioxidants include green tea, bilberry, fig, sea buckthorn, and pomegranate. This is a good cleanser for breakout control. Dryer skins will find it necessary to follow with a moisturizer.

    I would love to try the Sciote Gentle Facial Cleanser. I didn't know that they even made a facial cleaner to be honest. I have loved everything I have tried with this brand so far. In fact their peptide eye cream is now part of my daily regime. I have also been toying with the idea of making the Omni phyto cell face cream a part of it also. (I use the MitoQ as serum, and just got 2 new bottles of this in the mail today!)

    Even more reason to want to try it is that I have well over 25 facial cleansers, and not one of them is something I would ever buy again. My skin is at that delicate age and tipping point where a product can fail miserably pretty darn fast. But a good one can made a huge difference just as fast. Sciote never seems to disappoint me, so this definitely has potential.

    The cleansers in the 2015 list all sound amazing! I thought that the Sevani Ageless Radiance Refining AHA Cleanser is the one I would purchase due to budget for such type of product. It is priced moderately and the great ingredients speak a lot about how effective it can double task abd be as cleanser and mask. I enjoy trying out new products and very ready to get a new cleanser since my current one is almost out. Hopefully I can try the Sciote Gentle Cleanser too!

    I am always on the lookout for a gentle cleanser that can remove my makeup without stripping my skin or making it feel tight.
