Compared to serums and moisturizers, buying a facial wash seems pretty simple. As long as it can clean your face, it's all good, right? But, since they're designed to clean your skin, most of them leave your face feeling tight and dry, and this can take a toll on your skin, especially if you have an oily or acne-prone complexion.
Want to score plump skin sans the taut feeling? Below, we list down our top non-drying picks:

Hada Labo is a Japanese beauty brand that has been earning praises from Pinays for its ~hydrating~ skincare products. This creamy face wash, for instance, is formulated with two types of hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that attracts water to the skin and locks in hydration.
