Men's Face Wash - New Zealand

Excellent skincare starts with the right face cleanser. While every face is unique, finding the perfect cleanser doesn't have to be difficult. It's important to choose a product tailored to your skin type and to use it both morning and night. Each cleanser offers distinct benefits, and we encourage you to explore our comprehensive range.

Why is using a face wash important?

A quality face wash is essential for removing dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin, which helps prevent clogged pores and breakouts. It also prepares your skin for shaving and supports overall skin health.

How often should I wash my face?

Typically, you should cleanse your face twice daily—once in the morning and once before bed. Additionally, make sure to wash your face after heavy sweating or a workout to clear away excess grime and oils.

Can I use regular soap to wash my face?

Using a face wash specifically designed for facial skin is preferable. Regular soap can be too harsh and may strip your skin of natural oils, leading to dryness and irritation.

What ingredients should I look for in a face wash?

Key ingredients to consider include:

  • Salicylic Acid: Helps control acne by unclogging pores.
  • Glycolic Acid: Provides gentle exfoliation for smoother skin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Offers hydration to keep skin moisturised.
  • Natural Extracts (Aloe Vera, Tea Tree Oil): Soothe and calm the skin.

How much face wash should I use?

Use enough product to thoroughly cover your entire face. 

Should I use a different face wash in the morning and evening?

It's not essential, but using a gentle cleanser in the morning and a more targeted one (such as an exfoliating or acne-fighting formula) at night can enhance your skincare routine.

Can face wash help with shaving?

Absolutely. Using a face wash before shaving softens facial hair and prepares your skin, leading to a smoother shave and reducing the likelihood of irritation and ingrown hairs.

Which cleanser is best for me?

Oily Skin should opt for foaming cleansers with ingredients like clay, tea tree oil, and acids to effectively remove pore-clogging dirt and oil. These also help manage breakouts and reduce inflammation. The Daily Face Wash from MenScience is a popular choice.

For dry skin, choose gentle, creamy cleansers that help maintain the skin’s moisture balance, such as Anthony's Algae Facial Cleanser.

Sensitive Skin should look for minimalist cleansers with fewer active ingredients to avoid irritation. Products with soothing properties and without harsh chemicals are ideal.

By selecting a face wash suited to your specific skin type and incorporating it into your daily routine, you can maintain healthy, clear skin and improve the overall appearance and texture of your face.
