There’s nothing quite like the feeling of washing your face. In the morning, it jump-starts the day fresh —anything feels possible. At night, it’s as if you’re washing all the stress away so you can hibernate for the next 8 (or 9, or 6…) hours. And this way of renewing your skin wouldn’t be possible without the perfect face wash.
Finding the right cleanser can get overwhelming though. There are so many different formulas out there, from wipes to gels to those magical clay-to-cream wonders. And what might give you that fresh start in the morning isn’t necessarily what’s best for removing waterproof makeup at night.
To help you find the perfect cleansers for all your needs, we rounded up every single vegan face wash from the bareMinerals skincare collection. Whether you’re looking for an ultra-gentle formula to wake up your skin in the morning or a purifying foam to clean your pores at night, the 8 products below can cover all your cleansing needs.
