I’m a huge fan of great skincare. Since gluten irritates my skin, especially my eyes, I rock out topical gluten-free products. So, if you react topically to gluten, live with the topical form of Celiac (dermatitis herpetiformis), or don’t want to ingest gluten via topical products accidentally, this list of gluten-free face wash cleansers and moisturizers are all for you.
Gluten-free face wash cleansers and moisturizers
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Cleansing Foam is formulated with rose stem cells and gently lifts impurities, dirt, makeup, and dead skin cells Perfect for dry, sensitive, delicate skin. All ingredients used are organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, sustainable, fair trade, cruelty-free, and nature-derived.
The foam has a light flowery smell that quickly goes away. It foams nicely, and it does an excellent job removing makeup without drying your skin.
Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash: This pure and organic face wash cleans thoroughly, and it leaves your skin oil-free. Regular use will help improve your skin’s texture. On top of this, it will also help against burns, insect bites, dryness, itchiness, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
It works wonders for people with oily skin and acne issues – seriously. It lathers well, but be careful around the eyes as it stings.
This is not in the instructions, but this is also very effective in cleaning makeup brushes. Your makeup residues will come off almost instantly.
You get your money’s worth. It is such a huge bottle and it lasts a long time.
DERMA E Hydrating Gentle Cleanser: This is another great product from Derma E. It will gently foam and wash and moisturize your face. It will also remove makeup.

Don’t freak out when you see it is black. It is normal because of the activated charcoal which helps absorb impurities.
I fully recommend it for daily use, and it has a great price.

Very effective for exfoliating yet safe for daily use on all skin types, from teenagers to adults. It works well to remove makeup as well.
One downside might be the smell. Not everyone might like it.

So I was pleasantly surprised when I picked up Brandless Grapefruit Facial Cleansing product and found out just how amazing this cleanser is. It also did an awesome job clearing my acne without drying out my forehead.
