(2) Cream cleansers Suitable for dry, delicate, or normal skin types. Often formulated with moisturizing ingredients like glycerin or shea butter to hydrate the skin while cleansing.

(3) Micellar water Suitable for all skin types. Made up of micelles, tiny oil molecules suspended in soft water, which attract dirt, oil, and makeup without stripping the skin. Does not require rinsing, making it convenient for travel or on-the-go cleansing.

(4) Oil cleansers Suitable for all skin types. Effectively removes makeup and sunscreen while also dissolving excess oil and impurities. It can balance the skin's natural oil production, making it beneficial for oily and acne-prone skin types.
