Start and finish your day with a clean palette. Cleansers are designed to rid the skin of dirt, grime and pollutants, and lead to outbreaks and a fresher appearance.

Neutrogena Men Face Wash (HK$79.90/100g)

It leaves the skin feeling a bit dry, but overall a good product. Skin feels clean, with a masculine scent. Contain salicylic acid to prevent acne.

Gatsby Facial Wash Moisture Foam (HK$57/130g)

It may be a little harsh for people with sensitive skin. Contains a fresh citrus smell - a bonus when it comes to a cleanser.

Nivea For Men Oil Control Face Wash (HK$55.90/100ml)

A deep cleanser that combats oily skin, leaving the face refreshed and moisturised. The nice scent is a bonus.

Mentholatum Oil Control Icy Charcoal Face Wash (HK$59.90/150ml)

The metal-coloured paste that comes from charcoal is a bit freaky, but the face wash is effective, keeping your face dry and oil-free for the day.

Bio-essence Ultra Hydrate & Energise Cleansing Gel (HK$49/100g)

The cleansing gel does a good job controlling oil, and leave skin feeling cool and refreshed. At this reasonable price, this isn't bad at all.
