9 Hard-Working Cleansers to Save Your Skin Over the Festive Season

We all know that proper cleansing is the cornerstone of healthy skin. Not only does it remove makeup, sunscreen, dirt and debris, but also preps the complexion for the absorption of all the products that come after.

But with so many formulas on the market, it’s equally as important to find one that works for your individual needs. Oily skin for example fares well with lightweight gels, whereas dry skin needs a nourishing cream or balm. Those prone to congestion might even prefer an exfoliating option to deeply clean and resurface. The options really are endless!

So with the festive season in full swing (and a few late nights pencilled in the diary), we've curated 9 of our favourite The Green Edit -approved cleanser formulas — all clean, all effective and all entirely shoppable below. Keep scrolling to discover.
