Whenever one of my BFFs discovers something they love, I expect them to share it with me so I can also experience the greatness. That’s exactly how I’ve become a 90 Day Fiancé fan, a sushi convert, and a bona fide blush draping devotee. And now I’m extremely grateful for my fellow Beauty Geeks—AKA Well+Good’s beauty Facebook group—for sharing their go-to drugstore moisturizing cleansers, because I’m going to steal all their intel for my own routine.

When someone asked for good hydrating cleanser recommendations that can be found at the local drugstore or Whole Foods, a slew of must-have skin-care finds were named. Really good ones. I’m not going to hold onto these for my own good, though—once you see these drugstore gems, you’re going to want them too. Keep scrolling for your skin-care jackpot.

Derma E Hydrating Cleanser, $12

One Beauty Geek recommends Derma E, which makes a hyaluronic acid-packed cleanser that removes makeup and gunk from your skin without stripping it of its natural oils.

Seaweed Bath Co

The Seaweed Bath Co. Purifying Gel Cleanser, $13

You can find this brand at drugstores and Whole Foods. One of our readers loves their gentle cleanser, which is infused with detoxifying seaweed extracts, marine tri-peptides to protect your skin’s barrier, and aloe vera for a soft-as-a-cloud complexion.

Cocokind Oil to Milk Cleanser, $18

Cocokind’s known for its good-for-your-skin ingredients, hence why Whole Foods swooped them up for their shelves. We swear by this hybrid cleanser that transforms from an oil into a cream as you lather.

Mad Hippie Cream Cleanser, $13

Another Whole Foods find, our readers love this creamy, moisturizing cleanser for a face wash that does the job without leaving your skin dry or squeaky clean.

Badger Unscented Face Cleansing Oil, $16

You can get this hidden gem at certain food stores (one reader gets Badger products at Sprouts, and it’s also at Whole Foods), which uses a combo of olive and sunflower oils to remove makeup and impurities while infusing your skin with essential lipids for moisture.

Andalou Naturals Meyer Lemon + C Creamy Cleanser, $11

If you’re looking to brighten and cleanse in one fell swoop, our readers swear by this citrusy vitamin C face wash that cleanses pollutants and dullness all with one product.

Bliss Makeup Melt Cleanser, $12

Ever since this spa brand expanded into drugstores, we’ve been so into it. This rose flower-spiked jelly cleanser that does the job of a good face wash… but in a really fun (and soothing) texture.

Burt’s Bees Deep Cleansing Cream, $11

Chamomile and aloe vera work together with detoxifying soap bark for an invigorating, calming facial cleanse that leaves your skin happy.
