Q&A on Product Selection
What type of facial cleanser is right for me?
Below is a list of the major types of facial cleanser available in stores.
|Cream||The most common kind of facial cleanser; often sold in tubes.
Superior usability and foaming; available in many varieties with different skin sensations.
|Scrub||Mostly cream-based facial cleaners with added scrubbing elements to add an appropriate feel on the skin and sensation of cleaning the face.
Mainly aimed at male consumers.
|Liquid (in pump dispenser)||Very easy to use: simply press the pump. Foams well but is not as smooth as a cream cleanser nor provides as good a sensation of cleanliness.|
|Foam (in pump dispenser)||A mesh insert in the pump works the cleanser into a soft foam as it comes out. A handy product as it requires no lathering, but the foam does not last long and does not provide as thorough a clean as other cleanser types.|
|Aerosol||Products contain gas, and when the button is pressed, a smooth foam is sprayed out. Handy because they require no lathering and foam is long-lasting, so facial cleansing can be done while ensuring gentleness on skin. Some types are carbonated, and facial cleansing while massaging promotes blood circulation.|
