Face Wash Face Off: How 3 Products Compare


Hey all, I hope you've had a great week and are ready for a well-deserved weekend! In a recent poll over on my Insta Stories I asked you all what content you want to see more of and a ton of you requested more skincare content. I have recently been alternating between a few face washes and I decided to share my thoughts with all three of them with you!

If you've been a reader for a while you probably already know that I am a longtime fan of Glossier (read the post about how Glossier changed my skincare routine for the better and read the post where I talk about every single Glossier product) and their Milky Jelly Cleanser. I was recently sent these other two that I've been wanting to try out. Saturday Skin's Rise + Shine Purifying Cleanser and Frank Body's Creamy Face Scrub

So, let's compare!


Frank Body's Creamy Face Scrub comes in a tube with a twist-off top. 

Glossier's Milky Jelly cleanser comes in a plastic container with a pump.

Saturday Skin's Rise + Shine Purifying Cleanser comes in a tube with a flip top. 


Frank Body's Creamy Face Scrub is a light brown color and has coffee grounds sprinkled throughout it. 

Glossier's Milky Jelly cleanser feels exactly how it sounds: it's a clear jelly-like substance. 

Saturday Skin's Rise + Shine Purifying Cleanser is a white, super creamy product. 

The Verdict:

Since I've been using the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser for about a year now, I'm definitely biased towards it. The texture feels so nice against my skin and the results I get from it are awesome. For this blog post I tried the other cleansers twice a day for one week each, so I can't speak to long-term use for those, but I will tell you what I thought! 

I really liked Saturday Skin's cleanser. The best part about it is that you really only need a tiny amount because it really builds as you rub it in. I used way too much the first time I tried it. I thought it smelled nice and did a good job of making my skin feel refreshed.

I also liked the Frank Body cleanser, but compared to the others I'd give it a third place finish. The one thing that I didn't love was the texture. Although it felt like I was really cleaning my face when I scrubbed, it was a bit too rough for my skin. I like the idea of being able to wake up your face with actual coffee, but I just know my skin is a bit more sensitve. I've also tried some of their other products that I really enjoy, like the Glow Mask
