Finding the right skin cleanser can be tough, but just because you want to be good to your face doesn't mean you have to spend a ton of cash and time looking for specialty cleansers. There are plenty of over-the-counter cleansers that'll do the trick. The key is to find the best over-the-counter cleanser for you.

Best Oil-Free Cleanser

Named "Allure" magazine's Best of Beauty in 2012, L'Oréal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser not only cleans your face, but it also contains salicylic acid, which exfoliates the skin and reduces acne. The cleanser, which is also oil-free, gets rid of all of the nasty stuff your skin picks up during the day, including sweat and dirt, and is great at removing makeup too.

Best Gentle Cleanser

Cetaphil Gentle Skin cleanser is a classic facial cleanser for a reason. The cleanser's mild, nonirritating formula works on even the most sensitive of skin types, and it's touted to soften skin as it cleans. These qualities are why "Elle" magazine named the cleanser one of the World's Best Beauty products.

Best Eco-Friendly Cleanser

If you're looking to go green, try Burt's Bees Orange Essence facial cleanser. Voted the Best Eco-Friendly Facial Cleanser by "InStyle" magazine, the cleanser is packed with glycerin, which helps to hydrate the skin while cleansing it. The product, which is also packed with orange oil, smells citrusy and delicious, so scrubbing your face is a breeze.

Best Cleanser for Acne-Prone Skin

Another favorite of the editors at "Allure" magazine, Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser is specifically formulated for acne-prone skin. The product -- which contains salicylic acid to fight acne; witch hazel, which works as an astringent; aloe to soothe and ginger root extract to absorb oil -- clears blemishes and helps to prevent new ones from forming. Plus, it leaves skin with that great clean, tingly feeling and doesn't leave it too dry.
