Finding the right products for combination skin is tough, and Sydney Sweeney knows the struggle all too well. She's been open about her long-time challenges with sensitive, acne-prone skin; During a skin-care walkthrough with Harper's Bazaar, the actress recounted how she "always went through either exfoliating too much" or skipping face wash altogether, which led to breakouts in high school. "I finally found a facial cleanser that is incredible for me," she said. The product in question? An ultra-gentle formula from Laneige.

The Laneige Cream Skin Milk Oil Cleanser (Buy It, $34, amazon.com and sephora.com) melts away dirt, makeup, and buildup without drying out your face. Sweeney, a Laneige brand ambassador, even claims she can "take off all her makeup with it." Nourishing milk oil bonds to the oils and impurities on your skin, lifting them away as you wash. Meanwhile, a combination of moisturizing ingredients like glycerin and amino acid-rich white tea leaf water hydrate and strengthen the skin barrier. The result is an effectively cleansing face wash that removes pore-clogging impurities without stripping the skin. (BTW: Editors love this $11 cleanser for sensitive skin.)

In addition to Sweeney, so many shoppers say the Milk Oil Cleanser is gentle and moisturizing, a must for combination skin types. "[It's] super hydrating and really helped clear my acne," wrote one Sephora reviewer, adding that "If you have dry skin, this is def a must have!" Another Sephora shopper noted it's "so gentle on [their] combination skin," and does "a great job at removing the full-coverage foundation" they wear daily. A third person commented that it also leaves their skin "so soft."If, like Sweeney, your relationship with cleansers has always been rocky, consider restarting with a mellow but effective formula, like this Milk Oil Cleanser. Shop this face wash and more of her picks from the video, like the viral Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, on Sephora and Amazon to experience these skin saviors for yourself.
