Reviewed: Youth To The People’s Superfood Cleanser, a Gentle Gel Cleanser That Won’t Dry Out Your Skin

Should you try this bestselling face wash?
Youth To The People Cleanser

Gel cleansers don’t have the best reputation. While they’re known for their ability to give your skin a deep-cleanse, they can often be too drying—leaving your face feeling tight and stripped of moisture.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you’ve been avoiding gel cleansers because you think they’re too harsh for your skin type, let me introduce you to Youth To The People Superfood Cleanser.

With more than 4,000 four-star reviews, it’s one of Sephora’s bestselling products, and for good reason. It’s super-gentle, highly effective and made with clean, skin-friendly ingredients. There are only a handful of cleansers that I recommend to everyone, and this is one of them!

Read on to find out what’s inside and why you should try it.
