Face Wash and Cleanser??

Is face wash and cleanser the same?
It's confusing sometimes...

I get alot of direct message asking the same questions or very simular questions confused weather face wash and cleansers do the same thing? Is cleansers and toners the same?

The simplest way of answering is YES both face wash and cleanser do the exact same thing but have a different formula or texture. 

In any skincare routine, you must wash your skin or clean your skin as the first step. Now face wash you already know it says it on the bottle you wash your face. A cleanser sounds more complicated but this actually the same thing. Cleansers come in many other forms which is why everyone gets mixed up. You can get them in oil's, balms, gels and many more. Some cleansers you can just apply directly to your face and massage in without using any water (for example an oil formula). Most cleansers you should use in wet face. Some toners and cleansers come together so it's a two in one. Which is doing both cleaning and toning. Those ones is best to use as a second step or secong cleansing product after washing skin. So face washes and cleansers that you use help wash off dirt, pollution, bacteria and just dead cells on your skin surface. This also removes spf properly too.
Just remember that's your first step which is cleaning your skin. Then comes a toner which is the second step or third step after double cleansing. Cleanser and toner are two different things which is why they are separate steps and must be done if one or other if in separate bottles. (Not a 2 in 1 version)

So I hope that helps to break down that actually a face wash and cleanser is pretty much the same :)
They both clean the skin and is anyone's first step to facial skincare or used when double cleansing.
