A Clean Break

The latest cleansers offer all you ever wanted—and then some.

Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser

If you still haven’t figured out what type of cleanser to use—gel, oil, milk?—the answer is none of the above. A new, multi-hyphenate hitting shelves this month combines the best of all three: it starts as a gel, magically transforms into makeup-removing oil when applied to dry skin, and then washes off with water as a milk. Skin feels fresh and renewed—and not in the least bit dried out. But, you’re still left with some decision making to do, as three brands are already in on the trend: the vitamin C-rich Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser; Nude’s soothing, omega-packed Perfect Cleanse Omega Cleansing Jelly; or Jane Larkworthy’s personal favorite, the hydrating Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting.
