Jeju Volcanic Cleansing Foam (P550) from Innisfree
Best for: Oily skin
Yup, Innisfree delivers! If you’re a fan of the K-Beauty brand’s skincare products—which are known for their signature natural ingredients like green tea extract and sea salt—you can finally start restocking your collection. For those with oily skin looking for a cleanser to fight off excess shine and dirt build-up, you might want to try their Volcanic Cleansing Foam.

Aloe Calming Foaming Wash (P795) from The Body Shop
Best for: Sensitive skin
This facial wash from The Body Shop is formulated especially for sensitive skin. It contains no color, fragrance, or alcohol—all common irritants that can cause skin to act up. The gentle formula has aloe vera, which promises to soothe and calm skin while also making sure it stays soft and hydrated.
Available on Shop SM.
AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser (P2,050) from Murad
Best for: Textured skin
For skin that may be feeling a little rough and textured in these stressful times, try this exfoliating cleanser from Murad. It contains chemical exfoliants like salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid which slough away dead skin cells and impurities, resulting in smooth skin with a brighter appearance. Take note: If you’re using exfoliants in the day time, be sure to apply SPF after as they can make the skin more sensitive to sun damage. But let’s be real: If you aren’t already using SPF every day, what the heck are you doing?
Available on Rustan’s online store.
Pollution Defense Face Cleanser (P245) from Human Nature
Best for: Exposed skin
Whether you’re a quarantine tribute running errands for your household or you just spend a lot of time soaking up the sun on your balcony, this cleanser from local brand Human Nature may be just what you need to keep your skin protected from environmental factors. It promises to wash away damaging pollutants that result from exposure to dust, fumes, and smoke with ingredients like bamboo charcoal for absorbing excess sebum and moringa seed extract for preventing impurities from building up.

Deep Clean Facial Cleanser (P350) from Neutrogena
