You know that scene in My Best Friend’s Wedding when Julia Roberts‘s character self-identifies as the Jell-O to Cameron Diaz‘s crème brulée? It’s simple. Comfortable. Maybe that’s what Michael wants! Well, face wash is the Jell-O of skin care. Fancy face masks and exfoliators are nice, but to be clear: they could never be Jell-O.
You see, face wash is the essential first step in any skincare routine (some dermatologists even say that, if you do anything at all, make it that you take off your makeup at night). But much like the aforementioned gelatin snack, there are lots of variations of facial cleansers. Depending on your skin type, you might lean toward a hydrating or gentle formula or pick one that’s spiked with acne-fighting ingredients like salicylic acid.
No matter what you’re looking for, we’ve hand-selected the best face washes on the market to get the job done. Who knows if it’s what Michael would want, but it’s what your skin deserves.
