The best cleansers for dry skin under $50

Flaky, chapped skin be gone! Here are the best cleansers to heal dry skin.

Just like combination skin and oily skin, dry skin has its pros and cons. It's great being able to go through the day and not need to touch up your makeup or worry about your forehead looking as shiny as patent leather. But then again, dry skin can make the signs of ageing (like wrinkles) look more obvious and without proper nourishment, dry skin can age faster.

This is why buying cleansers when you have dry skin is a tricky business. Your skin needs extra hydration and nourishment, not the deep-cleaning and oil-banishing cleansers that will only dry your skin out even more. People with dry skin need to look out for cleansers that are gentle, non-drying or specially-formulated for dry skin.

This is why buying cleansers when you have dry skin is a tricky business. Your skin needs extra hydration and nourishment, not the deep-cleaning and oil-banishing cleansers that will only dry your skin out even more.

People with dry skin need to look out for cleansers that are gentle, non-drying or specially-formulated for dry skin.

Our top pick is Yes To Coconuts Ultra Hydrating Crème Cleanser. This affordable cleanser is less than $20 and is made with 95% natural ingredients so it's far more gentle than chemically formulated cleansers. It has a cream consistency and is enriched with virgin coconut oil so your skin is nourished while it's cleansed.

Looking for more variety? We've included a bunch of other cleansers for dry skin below.

We hunted through skincare forums, review pages and skincare subreddits to find the best dry skin cleansers that have actually worked for other people with dry skin. And, they're all under $50. You're welcome.
