Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't quite make it.

Can't Recommend Specifically for Dry Skin

Can't Recommend Specifically for Dry Skin

These products weren't awful, but we couldn't exactly say we recommend them either. Suqqu Enrich Foaming Wash was average in terms of cleansing and moisturizing, but it did have a nice citrus and floral scent. 


Chifure Foaming Face Wash left our skin feeling halfway between moist and dry after we washed with it, so we can't say those with dry skin would be better off using it.

Not Enough Moisture Retention

Not Enough Moisture Retention

Moisture is arguably the most important factor for those with dry skin to consider, and these products couldn't help our skin retain enough of it. Remei Bouncy Whip definitely cleansed our skin, but it also stripped away some of our skin's valuable hydration.


Nameraka Honpo's Shittori Cleansing Face Wash looked like it would be moisturizing, but it wasn't. And even though Lamellance Foaming Face Wash advertises as a product that doesn't require post-wash skincare, we definitely needed it.

Didn't Cleanse Well Enough

Didn't Cleanse Well Enough

In a perfect world, we would properly remove all traces of makeup before using face wash, but we all have our flaws. If you have a lot of makeup on when using these cleansers, you may find yourself needing another wash.


Senka Speedy Perfect Whip had a nice foam, but the bubbles didn't wash away as much as we would have liked. The same applied to Nature & Co Pure Facial Foam, which had a relaxing herb scent. 


We were very impressed by how moisturizing Sokamocka Yutaka Face Soap was, but it didn't remove makeup like it promised. And Hatomugi Face Wash Foam comes at a decent price but not with equally decent cleansing power.

Too Strong of a Scent

Too Strong of a Scent

A surprising amount of products in our test batch had scents that might be a bit too much for some. For instance, Argelan Moist Face Wash has a pleasant orange and lavender scent, but it's so strong that you can smell it on your skin even after you've rinsed it off. The same applies for RMK Smooth Soap Bar, which smells strongly of lemon grass.


The more unpleasant fragrances we encountered were Nameraka Honpo Foaming Face Wash's alcohol smell and Moist Savon Face Wash's distinctly rubbery smell.

Not Quite the Texture We Were Looking for

Not Quite the Texture We Were Looking for

While natu savon select Washing Foam had fairly average scores, it was hard for us to get past the fact that the product seemed to linger on our face even after we washed it off. Since we think people with dry skin are looking for more of a smooth and refreshing finish, we can't recommend it strongly.

The Face Washes to Steer Clear of

The Face Washes to Steer Clear of

These three products had the lowest scores on our tests, and for good reason. Softymo Washing Foam with Hyaluronic Acid was disappointingly not moisturizing despite boasting its main hydrating ingredient right on the package. It didn't cleanse very well, either.


Chifure Cleansing Foam (Moisturizing Type) failed all of the tests except the ingredients category (which don't really matter unless they show results), and the only good thing about natu savon Select Washing Cream was its apple and jasmine scent.

How We Tested the Face Washes

How We Tested the Face Washes

We put each of the face washes through a series of three tests.


Test ① Cleansing Power
To test cleansing power, we applied the face wash to artificial sebum on glass and checked how much was removed.

Test ② Moisturizing Ability
To determine moisturizing ability we used a corneometer to measure skin moisture before and after washing.


Test ③ Ingredients

Finally, our expert, Ms. Mizuha, analyzed the balance of the ingredients within.

How to Choose a Face Wash for Dry Skin - Buying Guide

Here are two big things to look out for.

① Buy a Face Wash That Doesn't Have Too Much Cleansing

① Buy a Face Wash That Doesn't Have Too Much Cleansing

You may be reading this piece of advice and thinking, "What? But I need to clean my face!" The thing about dry skin is that too much cleansing power will further strip your skin of the healthy oils it's already deprived of.


We recommend amino acid-based ingredients since they're notoriously gentle on skin (though this can mean a lack of bubbles in the end). You'll find these in the ingredients list with names like cocoyl glycine K and sodium lauroyl methylaminopropionate.

② Choose Something with a Good Balance of Moisturizing Ingredients

② Choose Something with a Good Balance of Moisturizing Ingredients

We've said it a hundred times alright, but your dry skin needs moisture. The leading cause of feeling dry is when your skin is stripped of the natural oils that keep it healthy.


That's why you need a good selection of ingredients in your face wash as much as the rest of your skin care routine. Ingredients like squalane resemble the moisturizing veil that should be present on your skin naturally while amino acids and ceramides resemble the moisture already present in your skin.

Provide Even More Moisture to Your Skin with These Products

Provide Even More Moisture to Your Skin with These Products

We've mentioned post-wash skincare enough times that you're probably desperate for some suggestions, right? Here they are.

Summary

mybest looked at 34 of the most popular Japanese dry skin face washes available online and tested them all. We found that the best of the best cleansers had a great cleansing power without depriving skin of much-needed oils and didn't have a strong fragrance. We advise you to read more reviews along the way, but we hope we've given you a good place to start your search!

    Foundation is so yesterday. Nowadays, in Asian beauty, all you hear about is alphabet cream: AA, BB, CC, DD, so on and so forth.

    Top 18 Best Japanese Anti-Aging Serums, Essences, and Ampoules to Buy Online 2019 - Tried and True!
    We might not be able to prevent aging altogether, but we can still age gracefully. That feels like the consensus here in Japan, where anti-aging skincare is popular and constantly evolving. As time goes by, our skin undergoes certain changes–hormones are thrown out of balance, certain functions are dulled–and serums that you used once may no longer be as effective.So which serums a) target the signs of aging and b) will actually work for you?

    All too often, we have to make a choice. Do we look good, or do we leave our skin and lashes well enough alone? Mascara opens up and brings out the eyes and irises, but it also likes to claim a few lashes as sacrifice when you take it off at night. However, tubing or tube mascara is designed to slip right off of your lashes with a bit of hot water.In Japan, most of our top-selling mascaras are tubing. So you have a confusing array of choices–and you need to know not only which mascara comes off easily but also which looks best when it goes on.
