With the cold weather right around the corner, I thought it would be good to share an update to my face washing routine. You see, as the weather turns colder, I switch out a few of my skincare products, and it's something you should think about adjusting, too. If your skin is on the dry side or gets dry in the winter, is more sensitive in the winter weather months or is simply less oily during the wintertime, it's wise to start your skincare routine with a different type of cleanser. Here are the best cleansers to use in the winter, including some new launches that are perfect for this time of year.

 Top 10 Cold Weather Cleansers


I have been using IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser since it was released late in the summer; it is so comforting to my skin and keeps skin soft. I use Confidence in a Cream regularly, and it's a nice companion product.

Both of the SkinCeuticals cleansers are really nice and problem-solving. The Replenishing Cleanser is rich and foamy and it gets rid of even hard-to-remove makeup while the Soothing Cleanser is great for post-procedure or sensitive skin.

PTR Cloud-Cream Cleanser locks in moisture as you cleanse the skin, as does Simple Water Boost Micellar Facial Gel Wash. You can read more about that here.

I have been a fan of Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser for years and regular use this, but when it's cold and I need deep hydration, I use the Cleansing Oil. It does not leave a film but cleanses and leaves skin instantly hydrated where I don't feel like I need to immediately slap on moisturizer.

nia Cleansing Foam is a nice foaming cleanser that is PACKED with anti-aging ingredients. While it hydrates and cleanses the skin, it literally leaves skin glowing.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm effectively removes every trace of makeup while leaving skin super soft and smooth, as does pixi Double Cleanse, which you will become obsessed with as soon as you try it.

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser is super nourishing and calming to the skin as soon as you apply it; I use it often in the winter.
