There are countless brands and types of facial cleansing cloths on the market, but each has its own distinct qualities (for the careful observer). Here’s a look at some of the best facial cloths based on some quality research and personal experience.

Ponds Clean Sweep- These facial cloths contain chamomile and vitamin E. They hydrate while they clean and provide topical antioxidants to improve the look of skin. The textured cloth allows for deep cleaning and because it is hypoallergenic and alcohol free, Ponds Clean Sweeps are safe for even the most sensitive skin.

Basis So Refreshing Facial Cleansing Cloths- This product offers the convenience of individually wrapped cleansing cloths that are ready to go with out water. They also don’t require you to rinse your skin after use. Basis So Refreshing cloths are great for all skin types and effectively remove dirt, oil and make-up on the go.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleansing Pads- These pre-moistened pads are really two pads in one. The cleansing pads are smooth on one side to remove oil, dirt and make-up. Then they are textured on the other side to gently exfoliate the skin. The combination leaves the skin looking clean, fresh and toned.

Dove Gentle Exfoliating Daily Facial Cleansing Pillows- As the name suggests, Dove’s “pillows” puff up and foam when mixed with warm water. The pillows gently exfoliate the skin while the foaming cleanser wipes away dirt and oil from the skin’s surface. This product is safe for all skin types.

Olay Total Effects Age Defying Cleansing Cloths- Olay’s popular cleansers are specifically designed to fight the signs of aging using Olay Moisture and VitaNiacin. They clean the skin removing dirt and make-up, but also work to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, revitalizing the skin.

Kaia Bamboo Facial Cleansing Cloths- These cleansing cloths are made of natural unbleached bamboo fiber cloth and are non-irritating. They contain honey and citrus oils to leave the skin feeling fresh and soft. Kaia Bamboo cloths are great for all skin types and a great product if you are looking for a natural biodegradable cleansing cloth alternative.

Regardless of the facial cleansing cloth you choose, here are the things to look for and consider.

  • Determine what kind of skin is best treated with the facial cleansing cloth in question
  • Don’t buy what won’t work for your skin
  • Are the cloths pre-moistened or not? This can be simply a matter of convenience, but it depends on how and when you plan to use the product.
  • Is the product in my budget for regular use?
The bottom line is that if you choose the right facial cleansing cloths for your skin type and use them regularly, you should have quality results.
