All of us are on a quest for the “holy grail” cleanser—the face wash that can help us face the day (or wash it off) with a gentle, hydrating formula. After all, a daily cleanser that truly removes every last smear of foundation and smudge of mascara (along with dirt, oil and other pore-clogging impurities) is worth its weight in gold.

Each of us has unique skin concerns, so the ideal cleanser might look different for us all. That’s why Aloette is here to guide you through this first step of your skincare routine, helping you put your best face forward—whether it’s headed out the door or for the closest pillow.


The Oily Skin Type is known for producing excess oils, which can lead to a shiny appearance of skin. You may have oily skin if you experience:

  • Enlarged pores
  • A shiny complexion
  • Blemishes such as whiteheads and blackheads

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Oily Skin:

Stick Shift Exfoliating Cleanser Stick

Formulated especially for oily skin, this all-in-one cleanser, exfoliator and toner foams on contact to help draw out dirt, oil and other impurities through a powerhouse blend of Charcoal and Moroccan Lava Clay. It helps reduce the appearance of blackheads and enlarged pores for an overall improved look of skin tone and texture.


The Dry Skin Type naturally produces less of the oils that help skin stay balanced. You may have dry skin if you experience:

  • Skin tightness (especially after cleansing)
  • Red, flaky patches
  • Nearly invisible pores

 Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Dry Skin: 

Hydra-Cleansing Emulsion Daily Face Wash for Normal to Dry Skin

Just as the name implies, this ultra-creamy face wash is designed to hydrate and cleanse skin at the same time. Through deeply conditioning skincare ingredients like Aloe Vera and Shea Butter, this daily cleanser intensely moisturizes skin while gently removing makeup and impurities for a hydrated, fresh finish.


The Combination Skin Type has both oily and dry areas across the complexion. You may have combination skin if you experience:

  • Areas of dryness
  • Shine and blackheads across the T-Zone
  • Enlarged pores

Our Facial Cleanser Picks for Combination Skin:

Essential Cleansing Oil

Even though the first instinct for those of us with combination skin might be to stay away from oils, an oil-based cleanser can actually help balance skin for a healthier-looking complexion. Essential Cleansing Oil is perfect for nighttime cleansing and makeup removal—soothing and hydrating as it helps remove pore-clogging impurities like dirt and makeup for a refreshed, residue-free finish. With Sesame, Avocado, Olive and Safflower oils, this face wash gently conditions skin for a more radiant-looking complexion.

Pure Radiance Revitalizing Cleanser

Helping to create an age-defying complexion, this Revitalizing Cleanser gently exfoliates and helps remove pore-clogging impurities for clearer-looking skin. Pure Radiance features Lumitone Complex to help brighten, soothing Allantoin, powerhouse Amino Acids and gently exfoliating Lactic Acid to help refresh and renew the look of your complexion.


The Normal Skin Type is known for having an even oil balance across the complexion. You may have normal skin if you experience:

  • Even appearance of skin tone
  • Clear-looking complexion

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Normal Skin:

City Detox Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser

With just a sprinkle of water, this charcoal-infused Environmental Defense Powder Cleanser effortlessly transforms from a fine-grained powder into a luxurious, sulfate-free lather. It helps break down dirt, oil, makeup and other pore-clogging impurities for a complexion that’s visibly softer, smoother and brighter-looking.


The Sensitive Skin Type can be oily, dry or both, but with the added criteria of becoming easily irritated. You may have sensitive skin if you experience:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Dryness

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Sensitive Skin:

Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Pamper your skin with a calming blend of Chamomile, Green Tea and Aloe Vera that gently removes excess oil and impurities while helping to replenishing the skin’s natural hydration levels. With a lightweight, velvety foam, this gentle cleanser helps create a more radiant-looking complexion.


The Acne Prone Skin Type is known for having pores that become easily clogged, causing frequent (and oftentimes, persistent) breakouts. You may have blemish prone skin if you experience:

  • Frequent blemishes such as blackheads, whiteheads and pustules
  • Note: While blemish prone skin is often associated with oily skin, you can have either oily or dry skin and still be prone to blemishes.

Our Facial Cleanser Pick for Acne Prone Skin:

Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser

Formulated specifically for blemish prone skin, the Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser works to unclog pores and help draw out impurities like dirt and excess oil. Utilizing skincare superstars Lactic Acid, Aloeganic Aloe Vera and Peppermint Oil, Start Clean cools and soothes skin to help reduce the appearance of blemishes for an overall clearer-looking complexion.

Start Clean Deep Cleaning Cleanser is part of the AloeClear Collection designed specifically for acne prone skin. The full collection also includes a refining toner, spot treatment lotion and oil-free moisturizer.
