Face Wash and Cleanser??

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

I get a-lot of direct messages asking the same questions or very similar questions confused weather face wash and cleansers do the same thing? Is cleansers and toners the same?

The simplest way of answering is YES (my thoughts) both face wash and cleanser do the exact same thing but have a different formula or texture depending on it’s ingredients and what’s suitable for your skin type.

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 luxurious, more posh 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 or balm formula). Most cleansers you should use on wet face/skin. 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 second 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 to take off what hasn’t come off on the first cleanse. 
Cleanser and toners are two different things which is why they are separate steps and must be done if one or other is in separate bottles. (Not a 2 in 1 version)

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

Hope that helped.
