There are certain established rules that we live and die by — never say no to desserts, chew with your mouth closed when eating said desserts, avoid parallel parking at all costs, and, most importantly, wash your face at least twice a day. While we (unfortunately) cannot eradicate parallel parking once and for all, we do have with us here 13 facial cleansers to get you one step closer to being a rule-abiding citizen.

5. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

Best affordable gentle cleanser
Price from RM15.75
