The best men's face washes for every man in Australia


Face wash is one of those products that we often overlook in our bathroom cabinets, but it's an important part of our routine. Face wash can help keep your skin clear and healthy, so it's worth finding the right one for you. Whether you have oily or combination skin, dry or sensitive skin, or a combination of all three—finding the best face wash for men is easy when you know what to look for.

What is men's face wash?

Face wash is a cleanser that you use to remove dirt and oil from your face. It's different from face cream, toner and exfoliant as it doesn't contain any moisturiser or other ingredients for treating skin problems such as acne or dryness.

Men need to cleanse their face every day after shaving or washing it in the morning with warm water and soap. Face wash for men contains different ingredients than those used in women's products because male skin tends to be tougher than female skin due to the presence of more sebaceous glands (oil producing glands). The job of these oils is to keep your beard soft but they can get out of control if you don't regularly cleanse them away with a good quality face wash designed specifically for men like Jack Black Purifying Facial Cleanser (RRP $28).

How do I use men's face wash?

  • Wash your face with warm water.

  • Apply a small amount of the men's face wash to damp skin and massage in circular motions for 30 seconds, making sure to get all of the cleanser into your hairline as well. You may want to use a soft bristle brush or cloth to make sure you're getting all of your skin clean!

  • Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry (or use a soft towel if you prefer).

The best men's face washes for oily skin

If you have oily skin, a face wash is one of the best ways to keep it clean. Just like with all skin types, there are certain types of washes that work better for some people than others.

  • Oil-free products are best for those with oily skin because they don't leave behind extra oils on your face. This can cause pimples and blackheads to form on your face, causing acne breakouts.

  • If you have oily skin and want to prevent breakouts in the future, try using salicylic acid in your cleanser (this can be found at most pharmacies). Salicylic acid helps unclog pores and fight bacteria that causes acne. You should also look for mild products that won't irritate sensitive skin but still get rid of excess oil and dirt from your face without drying it out too much (which leads back into the problem we just mentioned).

  • Gentle formulas are important because if they're too harsh they could strip away healthy oils from the surface layer of skin making it dry out more quickly than normal--and since we're trying not only avoid dryness but also reduce any redness caused by dilated capillaries near broken capillaries under our eyes!

The best men's face washes for combination skin

For combination skin, you need to pick a gentle cleanser that's non-irritating and won't leave your skin feeling tight or dry. Look for products that contain ingredients like ceramides or hyaluronic acid. You also don't want any harsh ingredients that will strip the oil from your face (no alcohols or menthols!).

To wash off your cleanser, use a washcloth—no fingers! This step is crucial because not only will you remove more dirt and oil, but it'll also help stimulate blood flow to your face so you look brighter over time. After washing your face with water and drying it off, apply moisturizer immediately after towel drying so it doesn't dry out until morning when you go to bed at nightfall’s end…

The best men's face washes for dry skin

  • Gentle and non-drying

  • Alcohol free: Alcohol is a common ingredient in men's face washes, but it can dry out your skin. This doesn't mean that all men's facial cleansers have alcohol in them though—just look for those labeled "alcohol free."

  • Hyaluronic acid: This substance helps keep the skin hydrated, so it's important to choose a product with this ingredient if you have dry skin.

  • Ceramides: This lipid helps protect against moisture loss, making ceramide-rich products ideal for someone with dry skin.

The best men's face wash and cleanser combo/all-in-ones

  • Combo/all-in-one is another term for a cleanser that also removes your makeup. It's the best of both worlds: one product that does what two separate products would normally do.

  • To use a combo/all-in-one, simply wash your face with the cleanser first before rinsing off any remaining soap with water and then removing your makeup with an additional makeup remover (more on this below).

  • The benefits? You'll save time by not having to apply multiple products—and you'll save money since you won't be buying too many different things at once!

Find the right face wash to clean and protect your skin.

There are many reasons why it's important to use face wash, and you should be sure to choose the right one for your skin. Face washes with exfoliating beads can help remove dirt and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, while moisturizing formulas will help keep that soft feeling on your face. Look for cleansers with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide in them because these ingredients have been shown to reduce inflammation related to acne (or pimples).

  • Avoid using a harsh cleanser if you have sensitive skin—you may end up with redness or irritation instead of clear, healthy-looking skin

  • Your choice of facial cleanser depends on what type of activity you engage in during the day: if you're outside all day playing sports, then choose one that has SPF protection; if not, then just make sure there is nothing else besides water going into your pores
