Cleansing is an often underestimated part of the skincare routine. Since you wash it off after a minute or so, you might think the cleanser you use doesn't really matter. But not only do they get rid of dirt, makeup, and sebum (which can all make your complexion look dull!), but they can also help deliver essential nutrients and antioxidants to your skin, making it feel soft and supple and look bright and clear.


If you're still looking for the best brightening cleanser, check out some of our recommendations for the foundation of your skincare routine. 

Cetaphil Brightness Reveal Creamy Cleanser
