To compile this list, our team of editors and contributors spent hours researching the best face washes for oily skin on the market. We did this by speaking to our experts, looking at hundreds of online reviews from customers and other trusted sources, and conducting IRL testing in our Manhattan-based Lab. This testing allowed us to see how a face wash performed – from how easy it was to apply and remove, how it left the skin feeling, and its ability to reduce oil and congestion. We then used this research to assign a star rating from one to five (five being the best; one being the worst) to each cleanser in our roundup.

Our team, comprised of staffers with wildly different skin types, tested dozens of face washes and put them to the test against our makeup.
