3 Top Cleansers for Sensitive Skin

As the weather turns colder, my skin becomes more sensitive.  Chilly air temps and crisp winds can result in dry skin. Sometimes I have to change my face wash to something more gentle than the oil fighting cleansers I would use in the Summer.

Below, I've put together a list of my favorite cleansers for sensitive skin  that are great to use all year long.

1. Philosophy Purity Made Simple is my favorite higher end cleanser.  Can you believe I won a bottle from an Allure magazine giveaway once?  I've been hooked ever since.  This stuff is so gentle!

2. Origins Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash - this is another one that I can usually snag for free. During Earth month, Origins used to have a program that when you use up any cleanser, bring in the empty bottle for a free Checks and Balance cleanser.  It has an invigorating scent that wakes you up!

3. Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash is what I am currently using.  It lathers well and is free of dyes and scents so it's easy on the skin.  The entire line is formulated to be gentle on sensitive skin and I like that.  A lot!

Honorable mentions:

Clean & Clear also has a gentle cleanser that's good, and Clinique is nice, but more expensive.  I got a sample of this once and really like it.

Do you have sensitive skin like me?  Have you ever tried one of these products?


  1. I do not have sensitive skin but I do use products for that kind of skin. I want to try all three that you have presented. #ProductReviewParty

    1. These are great really for any type of skin! You'd love them.

  2. I am currently using L'Oreal and am loving it.

  3. I've used Philosophy products before but haven't tried that one. My face is fairly sensitive, but not so much that I have to use sensitive-skin products. I mostly use Olay and L'Oréal. My daughter has very sensitive skin and I sometimes buy products for her. Clean & clear works for her and Aveeno.

  4. I am actually looking for a facial cleanser system at present. Will have to check these out. Thanks!

  5. My skin isn't highly sensitive, but it is dry. I started using Cetaphil last year (both the wash and cream) and I love it! It keeps me moisturized all day and helps keep my dry patches under control.

  6. I have dry, sensitive skin and never used these products before. Thanks for the tips!

  7. I don't have sensitive skin but I have tried the Simple Cleanser. I actually really liked it :)

  8. I don't have sensitive skin but I am a fan of Philosophy Purity facial cleaner. It is my go to thing, my daily habit. I've tried others but this one is a staple for sure. www.mimicutelips.com

  9. I have sensitive skin even more so now that I'm pregnant. I've heard great things about Purity. Depending on the ingredients I may give it a try. My Aveeno sensitive is no longer working.

  10. Yes! I have eczema which is at its worst in the winter. But I haven't gotten into a good habit of changing products for the season. I'll certainly be giving these a try to make it through these next couple months. Thanks!
