When it comes to the art of face washing, we take it pretty seriously. We carefully select our skin care products and practically give ourselves a facial twice a day. That said, no matter how long you spend on your skin care regimen, a good face cleanser is key. 

Luckily, our readers are more than happy to give us their two cents — and we've added some choice editor's picks for best face cleanser as well. This list of skin care products has something for everyone. There are face wash formulas for all different skin types, including sensitive, acne-prone, combination, dry, oily and even rosacea. You can choose from gels, oils and balms, mild or deep facial cleansers and take your pick from exfoliating, creamy, foamy or even jiggly face washes.

Read on to see the 17 best face cleansers right now and find out which face wash was ranked number one by TotalBeauty.com readers.
