Compared to serums and moisturizers, buying a facial wash seems pretty simple. As long as it can clean your face, it's all good, right? But the thing is, since they're designed to clean the skin, most cleansers leave the face feeling tight and dry after use, and this can take a toll on your skin, especially if you have an oily or acne-prone complexion.
