Anyone with dry skin already knows the struggle of finding a gentle, non-stripping cleanser, and Mandy Moore is no exception. "Living in a dry environment I'm constantly looking for ways to keep my skin hydrated and moisturized," the This Is Us actress told Prevention, adding that she's been "leaning on oils a little bit more." And when it comes to using a cleanser that her skin "loves," Moore turns to this softening, oil-based face wash.

Described by the brand as an "all-in-one makeup remover," the Dr. Loretta Gentle Hydrating Cleanser melts away makeup while restoring hydration to dry, sensitive skin. The cleanser's star-ingredient, wrinkle-fighting marine-peptides, promote skin elasticity and smoothness. Meanwhile, calming chamomile and ginger root essential oils soothe redness and inflammation — a must for anyone with irritable skin. Finally, hydrolyzed algins deeply penetrate skin to absorb pore-clogging impurities and prevent free-radical damage that accelerates the aging process.

With so many skin-calming and anti-aging benefits, it's no wonder why Moore, a self-proclaimed lover of effective "lotions and potions and products," is a fan — and she's not alone. So many shoppers are impressed by how quickly the face wash removes makeup; one Nordstrom reviewer even swears it leaves their skin feeling "like silk."

"This gentle giant is a miracle worker," wrote one Dermstore reviewer, adding that it "deep cleans" the skin without stripping it of moisture. "I'm obsessed with the way it feels and how much of a difference I have noticed in the hydration of my skin," wrote another user, and a third agreed that it leaves their skin "perfectly clean and not tight and dried out." Even shoppers with eczema and rosacea report washing their face without any flare-ups. (BTW: These are the best cleansing balms to get rid of grime without drying out skin.)

For a boost of hydration in the first step of your skin-care routine, add the Dr. Loretta Gentle Hydrating Cleanser to your cart for $35 at Nordstrom and Dermstore.
