The Yves Rocher facial cleanser contains Edulis Cellular Water, which actively hydrates the skin in three ways. First, it helps store water in all of the skin’s layers. Second, it keeps the moisture in. Third and last, it releases moisture continually, allowing for constant hydration.

3. Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Refreshing Cleansing Gel
Exposure to sunlight, dirt, cosmetic chemicals, and pollutants can harm the skin, especially when the skin lacks oxygen. Oxygen deficiency can slow down or even stop the skin from regenerating, weakening the skin and making it look dull and dry. The Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Refreshing Cleansing Gel can prevent this from happening by adding oxygen to the skin to help in skin regeneration, all while keeping it moisturized. This formula is suitable for all skin types but is best for those with normal to combination skin.
Get the Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Refreshing Cleansing Gel in 200ml for RM43.44.
4. Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser
If your skin is particularly sensitive, we recommend the Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser. It has a hypo-allergenic formula that does not cause skin irritation. It’s also true to its name: the foam cleanser doesn’t dry out the skin, thanks to the amino acids in its formula. The cleanser’s formula contains olive oil, ceramide 3 and hyaluronic acid to keep the skin soft, smooth, supple and moisturized. What’s more, it’s also cruelty-free, paraben-free, silicon-free, and ethanol-free. In addition, it also doesn’t contain any artificial colorants or fragrances.

5. KAYMAN Coalface Soap Bar Facial Cleanser
Cleaning your face with a piece of black soap may sound counterproductive, but it’s actually very effective if the black soap is made of activated charcoal powder, like the KAYMAN Coalface Soap Bar. Activated charcoal is known to be useful in removing dirt and excess sebum from pores, much like a clay mask. Activated charcoal works like a magnet to suck out impurities on the surface it is placed on.
Kayman’s CoalFace Soap is made from activated charcoal powder, which explains its black color. But don’t let it deceive you: it’s quite powerful as a facial cleanser. There’s a CoalFace cleanser in liquid form as well, but we’re leaning toward the soap bar, which has a greater cleansing power and brightens up the face better than the liquid cleanser.

6. Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser
Cetaphil is a brand that’s trusted the world over, and for good reason. Its products are really effective in cleaning the skin without leaving it dry and overly tight. For this list of the best facial cleansers in Malaysia, we’ve selected the Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser. It’s recommended as a daily cleanser for those with oily or combination skin. The low-lather formulation is mild and gentle, and it preserves the skin’s natural oils. It’s light and won’t block pores, keeping skin clear. Smooth and hydrated. You can use it for your whole body too for a clean and fresh feeling all over.

7. Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
Cosrx is definitely one of the Korean brands we’ve come to love because of their affordable products and quality ingredients. The Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is a top favorite. It’s suitable for all skin types, but it works wonders for those with dry and sensitive skin. With tea tree oil as its key ingredient, it effectively removes impurities while hydrating the skin and restoring its natural pH. The gentle formula doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils, giving you well-moisturized skin all day long.

8. KOSE Sekkisui White Washing Cream Facial Cleanser
The KOSE Sekkisui White Washing Cream not only cleans the skin thoroughly but also gives it a radiant, translucent glow. The creamy foam formulation is gentle on the face yet effective in washing away those dead skin cells that make the face look dull. This facial cleanser also removes excess sebum as well as deep-seated dirt in the pores to prevent acne from forming. The brightening effect comes from the coix seed extract, which increases the skin’s translucency.

9. Dr.Douxi Essence of Eggshell Cream Soap Face Cleanser
The Dr.Douxi Essence of Eggshell Cream Soap Face Cleanser is a cream-based soap that not only cleans, hydrates and moisturizes but also keeps you looking young as well. As its name implies, it contains eggshell essence, which effectively removes the dry, dead skin cells that hide the skin’s natural glow. As you may know, eggshells contain calcium, which promotes cell regeneration. This facial cleanser also contains silk protein that hydrates the skin and keeps it nourished for that young, youthful glow. If you’re looking for an anti-aging facial cleanser that doesn’t contain alcohol, preservatives, artificial coloring and parabens, this product is definitely worth a try.

What is the difference between Facial Cleanser and Face Wash?
Well, we are equally confused by the two supposedly same products that we use to clean our face, so we went to find out from a dermatologist.
The most obvious difference between a facial cleanser and a face wash is, the foam. Face wash will foam up like soap when you rub them on your face. Whereas facial cleanser is non foaming in nature and some require rinsing with water or wiping off with a cotton pad.
While they both perform the same task to clean our skin (remove excessive oil, grime, sweat, makeup, and dead skin cells), a facial cleanser is usually used first. It is more effective to dissolve the dirt or makeup from the face than a face wash. The face wash should then be used to unclog deeper seated debris and cleanse the pores with its foaming action.
Those are the best facial cleansers in Malaysia that can truly leave your skin refreshingly clean and pleasantly moisturized. Which of these have you tried and which ones are you keen to try? We hope this review helps you find the right face cleanser that meets your skin care needs and fits your budget. Stay radiant!
