Genesea Vitamin C Facial Cleanser

Top Pick

Genesea Vitamin C Facial Cleanser

Pros

  • Enriched with Papaya vitamins & mineral-rich Dead Sea salts
  • Doesn’t dry your skin and no skin irritation
  • Incredibly refreshing
  • Great customer service

Cons

  • Haven’t found any

 

Why Should You Get It?

I would be remiss if I didn’t start with our one of the most popular Dead Sea face wash cleansers in the market and our “Top Choice” award winner.

Enriched with Papaya fruit extract, vitamins & antioxidants and a unique blend of Dead Sea minerals – Genesea developed a truly remarkable face cleanser that is able to thoroughly clean your skin without dehydrating it.

Manufactured right outside the Dead Sea, Genesea’s formula contains no alcohol, parabens or any of the awful mineral oils known to man.

Honestly, this is one of the very few occasions where I was satisfied by the whole experience… Haven’t found any downsides (yet).

Who is it For?

For both men & women, for all skin types – Genesea’s facial cleanser doesn’t discriminate. 

Bottom Line: One of the most popular Dead Sea face cleansers out there, for a good reason. Cleanses your face extremely efficient and very refreshing. It’s filled with vitamin C, Papaya extract and the best minerals the Dead Sea has to offer.

Premier Dead Sea Para-pharmaceutical Exfoliating Facial Gel

Premier Dead Sea Para Pharmaceutical Exfoliating Facial Gel

Pros

  • Gets rid of blackheads
  • Nice aromatic oils

Cons

  • A bit heavy – not for everyday use
  • Pretty abrasive

Why Should You Get It?

You’ll see Dead Sea Premier pop up several times along this article, for a good reason: they have one of the most impressive Dead Sea face wash selection.

Premier’s debut face wash is their para-pharmaceutical facial gel. It contains micro-plant seeds, that together with the Dead Sea salts can exfoliate, clean and balance your skin tissue – which will finally help you get rid of those annoying blackheads.

The cherry on top:  aromatic oils that give the wash a nice texture and an intoxicating smell.

Why Not?

The oil is pretty abrasive and heavy on the skin, so it’s not recommended it for sensitive skins.

That’s why I don’t recommend using it every day.

Tip: Use it every other day for optimal results. 

Who is it For?

Suitable for both men & women. Especially effective in getting rid of blackheads.

Bottom Line: A nice combination of para-pharmaceutical gel with micro-plant seeds and Dead Sea salts. Not too friendly for sensitive skins though.

Organic Skincare Doctor Dead Sea Mineral Face Wash

Organic Skincare Doctor Dead Sea Mineral Face Wash

Pros

  • Dead Sea minerals + bio-plasma mud help get rid of pimples
  • Great for dry skin types

Cons

  • Makes face oily
  • Not an appealing package

Why Should You Get It? 

First time I asked around about recommended Dead Sea face cleansers, Dr. Organic’s Dead Sea mineral face wash kept popping up.

And I can understand why: it’s pretty decent.

  • It’s a bio-plasma mud mask filled with minerals from the Dead Sea
  • Free from preservatives: no Paraben, SLS or artificial colors.
  • Almost 100% organic and natural bioactive ingredients 

Why Not?

The texture is pretty oily, and it makes your face rather oily as well. If you have a rather smooth face (like I do), I recommend you look at some of the other face cleansers on this list.

Also, as a designer, I can’t help but comment on the packaging. It’s too bad because whether you like it or not, we tend to judge the book (or in this case, mineral face wash) by its cover.

Who is it For? 

Perfect if you have a dry skin and you hate preservatives added to the formula.

Bottom Line: A decent Dead Sea salt face wash with some street credit. Best used on dry skin types.

AHAVA Time to Clear All In One Toning Cleanser

Our Favorite

Ahava Time To Clear All In One Toning Cleanser

Pros

  • Cleanses your skin effectively (can remove everything from makeup, dirt, and impurities)
  • Moisturizes, hydrates & clarifies skin without leaving your skin greasy
  • No water needed

 

Cons

  • A bit too creamy

Why Should You Get It?

Finally – my favorite face cleanser! Not such a shock that it’s an AHAVA product, right?

If you’ve been following some of my recent articles about Dead Sea Cosmetics, you probably noticed I have a thing for AHAVA. And no, it’s not because the word “Ahava” in Hebrew means “love” (what can I say, I’m a romantic), and It’s not just due to the fact that they’re the leading Israeli Dead Sea brand… It’s simply because they produce simply AMAZING Dead Sea products, and I’m a sucker for them.

Their face toning cleansing milk is no different. It can remove anything from makeup, dirt, impurities or even your child’s drawing on your face. Along with AHAVA’s proprietary OsmoterTM, the cleansing milk moisturizes the skin, leaving it clarified, toned and hydrated.

Tip: You don’t even need water to remove your makeup – a must-have when you’re traveling. 

Who is it For?

Great (and approved) for people with sensitive skin, free from preservatives.

Bottom Line: A one-step mineral face cleanser from the leading Israeli Dead Sea brand. Can clean the most difficult textures, including dirt, makeup, and even mascara.

Ultimate Spa Face Cleanser with Dead Sea Minerals

Ultimate Spa Face Cleanser With Dead Sea Minerals

Pros

  • High percentage of Dead Sea minerals
  • Made of organic ingredients

Cons

  • Not as popular as other cleansers (surprisingly)

Why Should You Get It?

Spa Cosmetics’ face cleanser is one of my personal favorites, and a pretty underrated one if you ask me. It contains a very high(!) percentage of Dead Sea minerals to treat the skin, which I like.

Surprisingly, this face cleanser didn’t take off like I thought it would… oh well, like my mom used to say: I guess I’m unique.

Who is it For?

Perfect if you prefer all-organic facial products

Why Not?

If you need reassurance from the masses, of many people who used it before and recommend it – you’re out of luck. Unfortunately, this Dead Sea minerals face wash didn’t get a lot of attention… so I guess you have to find out yourself whether you like it or not.

Bottom Line: Great formula with organic ingredients and a high dose of Dead Sea minerals. Less popular than other alternatives.

AHAVA Dead Sea Toning Water

Ahava Dead Sea Toning Water

Pros

  • Very refreshing
  • Includes botanic extracts + Dead Sea minerals
  • No need for moisturizer

Cons

  • Shipping takes time (ships from Israel)

 

Why Should You Get It?

AHAVA cleanser #2 – this time mineral toning water.

Enriched with healing minerals from the Dead Sea and marvelous botanic extracts, AHAVA’s toning water moisturized and rebalances your skin’s hydration better than a cold shower does. It keeps your skin fresh, smooth and glowing with a fresh youthfulness.

If we had a “Most Refreshing” award, then this would be the clear winner.

Who is it For? 

Great for anti-aging, or simply as a refreshing Dead Sea face wash.

Bottom Line: AHAVA’s famous mineral toning water leaves your skin smooth, fresh and young, thanks to its unique combination of Dead Sea minerals and botanic extracts.

Premier Dead Sea Luxury Facial Cleanser With Micro Grains

Pros

  • Easy to remove make-up
  • Great for sensitive & dry skin
  • Micro gains barely noticeable

Cons

  • Very creamy

 

Why Should You Get It?

Introducing: Premier Dead Sea’s facial cleanser – our “Best Value” award winner. This luxury cleaner does its job perfectly, leaving no trace behind when removing your makeup.

It’s very skin-friendly, cleansing and moisturizing even the driest skin types, including those with annoying skin disorders like Acne, Eczema, and Rosacea. The micro grains exfoliate the skin very effectively, and are barely noticed – so you get the best of both worlds… and all that for a very inexpensive price.

Who is it For?

For people with dry & sensitive skin looking for a face wash to moisturize and smoothen their skin, without breaking the bank.

Seacret Men’s Dead Sea Face Wash

Seacret Mens Face Wash

Pros

  • Powerful blend of Dead Sea minerals and vitamins
  • SLS free
  • Made in Israel

 

Cons

  • Expensive

 

Why Should You Get It?

You didn’t think I was going to discriminate the men, did you?

Don’t they also deserve to wash their face in the morning, and start their day off feeling clean & refreshed? Of course they do!

And the way to do that is using Seacret’s ultra-invigorating liquid face wash. Seacret’s blend is dedicated to hydrate, smoothen and condition your skin as it cleans away dirt and impurities.

Thanks to their SLS free formula, based on minerals from the Dead Sea and vitamins, our lovely men will be able to do exactly that. 

Why Not?

It’s pretty expensive. So if you’re on a budget, I suggest getting another face wash.

Who is it For?

Any man who could use to freshen up properly in the morning… I mean, with all due respect to coffee, it doesn’t really take care of your face, does it?

Bottom Line: An ultra-invigorating skincare experience for men with a healthy blend of Dead Sea minerals and vitamins, so they can start off their morning feeling extra clean and extra refreshed.

Premier by Dead Sea Premier Luxury Collection Milk Cleanser

Premier By Dead Sea Premier Luxury Collection Milk Cleanser

Pros

  • Great for combination skins
  • Hydrates and cleans(es) skin effectively
  • Very smooth

Cons

  • Too creamy
  • Fragrance is very strong

Why Should You Get It?

The final one by Dead Sea Premier, and definitely the most unique one out of the bunch.

This milk cleanser is extremely effective in balancing your skin. It does so with special conditioners that provide essential moisture for the skin while also cleansing and protecting it.

It’s incredibly smooth and very creamy (perhaps even too creamy), which does a remarkable job hydrating your skin – probably more so than any of the other Dead Sea face wash items on this list.

If you’re using it consistently, soon you’ll notice (or other people will notice) that your face starts to glow. Persistence pays off!

Why Not?

The cleanser is pretty creamy, and the fragrance is quite strong. I personally don’t mind the fragrance, but I know some people who do… so if you’re one of them, you might want to go for something “lighter” on the nose.

Who is it For? 

Great for dry or combination skin. If your skin is oily, then this might not be the optimal Dead Sea cleanser you need.

Bottom Line: Very smooth, very creamy – leaves your skin all hydrated and moisturized.

417 Dead Sea Cosmetics Face Wash Energizing Cleansing Gel

417 Dead Sea Cosmetics Face Wash Energizing Cleansing Gel

Pros

  • Rich with vitamins
  • Good for all skin types
  • Made in Israel

 

Cons

  • Not as popular as the alternatives

 

Why Should You Get It?

-417’S Dead Sea face wash is a bit of an underdog in the facial cleansers market. It still doesn’t have the “street cred” like the other ones I mentioned here… Nevertheless, it does its job surprisingly well.

This cleansing gel is great for all skin types: whether you have dry skin, combination or very oily skin – it does what it’s supposed to, and then some…

It can remove any substance on your face: from makeup, dirt or even paint, leaving your skin highly refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Who is it For? 

If you like being an “early adopter” vs following the trendiest products, then you might appreciate -417’s Dead Sea facial cleanser. It works great on all skin types, so no worries there.

Bottom Line: A very effective Dead Sea cleansing gel for all skin types, by a newcomer to the Dead Sea face cleanser category.

Top Pick: Genesea Vitamin C Facial Cleanser

Awarding Genesea’s facial cleanser anything less than the “Top Pick” would be a sin.

Their healthy combination (formulated right outside the Dead Sea) contains Papaya extract, vitamins & antioxidants, giving your skin a nourishing and refreshing feeling.

This is one of the rare cases where I couldn’t find a single disadvantage, so that says it all.

My Favorite: AHAVA Time to Clear All In One Toning Cleanser

AHAVA’s toning cleansing milk is my personal favorite facial cleanser. It can remove anything (even without water) from makeup, dirt, impurities and any other challenging substance stuck on your face. It moisturizes the skin, leaving it clarified, toned and hydrated – just another example of why I’m such a die-hard AHAVA fan.

Best Value: Premier Dead Sea Luxury Facial Cleanser with Micro Grains

Premier Dead Sea produce a lot of valuable Dead Sea cosmetics. This is definitely one of their very best.

Their luxury facial cleanser is a gift for people with dry & sensitive skin. It moisturizes, exfoliates and purifies even the “hardest” skin types, thanks to the micro gains in the formula.

The best thing? The price is a joke, considering the value this little magical wash can bring.

Summary

That’s that, folks.

I hope I helped you pick an awesome Dead Sea face wash to start your morning off feeling refreshed, all ready to face the day (don’t forget the cup of coffee though).

Remember: be consistent, and use the face wash every morning if you want to see results.

Now tell me, which of these Dead Sea cleansers did you pick, and why (I’m curious)?
