We can argue that cleansing is the most important part of any skincare routine. You can skip applying serum, retinol, and eye cream depending on your particular needs, but you must never ditch cleansers if your goal is to get a glowing complexion. After all, this essential product helps rid the face of dirt and impurities that can trigger acne and other skin problems.
That said, cleansers aren’t one-size-fits-all. Some formulas are better suited for certain skin types, while others are designed to help with particular skincare concerns. Read on to learn how you can pick the right one for your needs:
For gentle and daily use
If you’re looking for something you can add to your daily regimen, go for a cleanser that offers mild exfoliation. A product that has hyaluronic acid and niacinamide can help gently buff away dead skin cells and leave you with your dream radiant complexion.
We suggest trying Pond’s White Beauty Facial Foam. This cleanser is suitable for most skin types and is an excellent way to start your daily skincare routine. In addition to hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, this facial foam has rosehip seed extract that aids in brightening and evening out your skin tone with regular use.

For an instant boost of freshness
Even if you're mostly staying indoors these days, dirt and other irritants can still find their way to your skin and trigger pimple formation. This is why a cleanser that you can keep within reach and apply without rinsing is an absolute must-have.
Our reco? A three-in-one cleanser that can help remove dirt and excess oil, melt makeup, and nourish your skin! Check out Pond’s Brightening Rose Vitamin Micellar Water—it has vitamins A, B3, B5, C, and E, plus organic French rose extract, that can help make you feel and look refreshed, especially for those emergency video calls!

For fighting acne
No one is immune to pimples, and that’s completely fine, Cosmo girls. But if your breakouts are getting rather more frequent, or if you find yourself constantly dealing with the common maskne, your cleanser should help fight germs and bacteria that cause those pesky zits.
Add Pond’s Antibacterial Facial Foam to your product mix. This wash has Advanced Protect Technology that helps fight acne-causing bacteria, so you get clean, refreshed skin with daily use. Even better: It has BHA (beta hydroxy acid) that helps buff away dead skin, revealing a clear complexion. FYI, Julia Barreto uses this product to fight maskne!
For heavy makeup removal
If you wear a lot of makeup for your video meetings, or if you love playing around with different looks, you definitely need a tough cleanser that will help break down those beauty products. When wiping away long-wearing makeup, your best bet is an oil-based formula that will not leave makeup residue on your face.
Try Pond’s Cleansing Balm if you’re in need of a powerful makeup remover. This product doesn’t just cleanse your skin; it also helps moisturize your complexion so it stays soft and dewy. You’ll love how it has French rose extracts that offer a soothing effect when applied! Check out Ylona Garcia's and Gabbi Garcia's glowing reviews:
