DIFFERENT TYPES OF FACIAL CLEANSERS

Exfoliants, mousse, solid cleansers and more

WHAT ARE FACE BARS?

Face bars are solid face cleansers that are very easy to use. Simply wet your hands, foam your facial skin and rinse off!

WHEN SHOULD YOU USE CLEANSING WIPES?

Cleansing wipes are great when you are in a hurry and need a quick touch up on the go, for example after hitting the gym. No water is needed — simply pat you face with the wipe and get going!

HOW DOES FACE CLEANSING MOUSSE WORK?

Cleansing mousse has a great texture that feels super soft on your skin. Cleansing mousse moisturises your skin and cleanses very mildly.

WHEN DO YOU NEED AN EXFOLIANT?

You should use exfoliators for the face only once every few days. They effectively remove dead skin cells and provide you with a very deep cleanse.

CLEANSING VS. EXFOLIATING

Face cleansers and exfoliants explained

Facial cleansers are developed for the daily usage. Cleanse your face in the mornings and at night. During the day, dirt, sweat and pollutants stick to our faces and need to be washed off before going to bed. At night, our skin regenerates itself. When we cleanse in the morning, we get rid of excess oil production while at the same time helping our skin to hydrate. If you want to read more on face cleansing, read on here!

Exfoliators serve a different purpose. While they also cleanse the skin, they go deeper than the surface level of the skin, really cleaning out pores and getting rid of impurities. Exfoliators for the face should not be used on a daily basis — twice or three times a week is enough.

BENEFITS OF SOLID FACE WASH

Why you should give solid face cleansers a try

Even though solid face bars might not be at the top of everyone’s cleansing list, they should be! Because the list of benefits seems endless:

  • They’re environmentally friendly: say goodbye to plastic packaging and hello to a plastic-free bathroom! The bars come in paper boxes.
  • They’re convenient to use: no more bottles that are hard to open or sticky residue on the sink. Simply grab the solid cleanser, lather up and wash off.
  • They’re great for travelling: you won’t need little travel-sized flasks anymore. Plus: solids don’t leak into your luggage!
  • They’re natural: most solid facial cleansers are made of natural ingredients. Our NIVEA WonderBARS are to 99% made from ingredients of natural origin! To find out more about facial cleansing ingredients, read on here!

FACE BAR = SYNDET

What is a syndet?

Have you heard about syndets before? No? That’s not a problem! Let us explain.

Even though face bars might look like regular soap, they’re actually completely different. While soaps are a higher pH than your skin, they can leave it feeling dry and tight.

Syndets, short for synthetic detergents, cleanse your face at the same pH level as your skin. That’s why your skin feels soft to touch and gently cleansed!
