Best face wash

Water-soluble Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash draws expert raves for being gentle yet effective on all skin types, without stripping your skin's natural oils. It's so gentle you can use it multiple times a day if you need to; it lathers up nicely, does a great job of removing makeup, then rinses away cleanly -- and it's a great value too.
