Eau Thermale Avène Micellar Lotion Cleanser

'Micellar' cleansing waters are a huge boon to time-poor women:  a few swipes and (thanks to a special action which resembles how e-cloths work), your face is perfectly clean.  (We resort to them ourselves when feeling under the weather or seriously rushed, even though generally we're a balm-y army of cleansers, here at 'Beauty Bible Towers'.) This is a fantastic option for the sensitive-skinned, though, from Eau Thermale Avène (a brand we recommend time and again for those with touchy complexions).  It's ultra-gentle but unbelievably effective, and doesn't need rinsing - which is a boon, because many sensitive-skinned women find hard water, in particular, very drying.

Even works on eyes, and it's paraben- and preservative-free.

If there's a gentler way to cleanse, we don't know about it.
