NYLON Singapore Beauty Hit List 2019: Face Wash

Do not, I repeat, do not skip on cleansing. If there’s any rule that you shouldn’t violate in the world of skincare, it’s cleansing your face. Yes, removing your makeup is just as important, but your start and end of day skincare routine can be a total game-changer — and it all starts with the right face wash. Whether you’re looking for a gentle cleanser to soothe your sensitive skin needs or an all-rounder that also removes your makeup, pollution, (and whatever buildup of dirt on your face), here are some of our top picks by our Beauty Hit List 2019 panel of judges.

1. Antipodes Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser, $42.19

2. Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser, $38.35

“Generally the products did not react to my semi dry sensitive skin. The scent was very refreshing, close to AESOP products in fact. After each use, feeling is cleansed and moist. I experienced less breakouts (esp during time of the month where my skin just gets super sensitive) and pores just feel less congested. Personally I feel more confident to go makeup free almost all the time after using the antipodes as I feel my skin is looking healthier. It gives my skin a natural glow, it was non-drying most importantly. Especially on areas where I had breakouts. Removes makeup really easily too!! And does not irritate the eyes either. The formula/texture is also very, very light on the skin. Does not feel like you’re forcing so much products into your pores.” — Jemma
