We researched the formulas that are gentle, moisturizing, and safe for sensitive skin types, all the while leaving your face fully refreshed and clean (and even helping to nix breakouts, blackheads, and discoloration).

Below, find our favorites. There are cream-to-oil lathers, milky varieties, and all the foaming goodness your skin will ever need. Keep scrolling for the best gentle foam cleansers and why we're taken with each one.
