Best BHA Luxury Face Cleanser: Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser
Tata Harper’s Regenerating Cleanser ($88) is a natural exfoliating cleanser that contains BHA from white willow bark for chemical exfoliation and apricot microspheres for physical exfoliation. It’s great as a polishing and pore-minimizing treatment for those with dull or textured skin. Other luxurious ingredients include pomegranate enzymes, sunflower seed oil, and aloe vera.
While it’s recommended for daily use, this cleanser is quite powerful — i.e. using a BHA-product daily may be fine for some, however those with sensitive or rosacea-prone may not be able to tolerate it. And as with most Tata Harper products, this is heavily scented with natural essential oils so while it certainly offers a spa-like experience, it can be irritating for sensitive skin as it contains common essential oil allergens such as limonene, citral, and linalool.
Best Luxury Foaming Face Cleanser: La Mer Cleansing Foam
If you’re a fan of foaming cleansers, the La Mer Cleansing Foam ($95) is a pricey but solid option for those looking to purify and revitalize the skin. It features La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth complex (a medley of various sea kelp) which also helps to soothe and restore the skin.
It’s formulated without parabens, phthalates, and sulfates making it gentle for everyday use, however it does include Fragrance (Parfum) so it might not be suitable for those who are sensitive to synthetic fragrance.
Best Luxury Cleansing Balm: Eve Lom Cleanser
Cleansing balms are great for removing make-up, sunscreen, and build-up. The Eve Lom Cleanser ($145) is a cult-favorite for good reason — its formula melts onto the skin without clogging pores and features cocoa butter for added hydration.
It’s formulated without paraben, sulfates, phthalates, and synthetic fragrance. However it features Clove and Eucalyptus oils which can also be sensitizing for those who don’t react well with essential oils and also contains allergens like eugenol and limonene.
