We take cleanser very seriously at Byrdie HQ. It can't be too drying, it can't be too harsh, and it can't be too creamy, either. It has to have just the right consistency that gets rid of every trace of makeup without wreaking havoc on our skin. That's not too much to ask, right?

In our never-ending quest to find the perfect formula, we turned to the internet—more specifically, our friends at Rank & Style—who have aggregated some of the best-selling drugstore cleansers on the web. And you know what's even better? All five of them are $10 or less, so not only are they approved by tons of customers, but they're also completely wallet-friendly. If all of this wasn't intriguing enough, the best-selling cleanser is a little-known brand even we're unfamiliar with. Keep scrolling to find out what it is, along with the other four top picks!
