DERMATOLOGIST INSIGHT


"Many of my patients further irritate their skin when using too many acne products. This cleanser with salicylic acid helps reduce acne and excess oil but is still gentle enough for sensitive skin.“

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holy Grail for my skin but packaging stinks. This product is basically my holy grail. It’s the only thing that consistently works on my acne without irritating my skin. I use it both morning and night. The main downside is the packaging. It’s strangely both difficult to open AND prone to leaking. I struggle to get it open, especially when my hands are wet. And yet I often open it to find that there’s a bunch of extra product inside the cap. And if the bottle ends up on its side it leaks all over my counter. I really wish they would fix the packaging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SLS?? I loved and used this product for many years until recently I noticed there are sulfates in the product. Very unfortunate that LRP still makes this face wash with such products when many companies try to avoid them. Will have to find another cleanser, unfortunately.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RUINED MY SKIN RUINED MY SKIN. Do NOT use this everyday. Maybe 3 times a week AT MOST. I do not have sensitive or acne prone skin. This made my skin barrier damaged from using it every night. It says to you can use it 2x daily but that IS NOT TRUE. You should NEVER EVER exfoliate your face that many times in a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I’ve used this for a solid 4 years now and it’s always a great go-to. The salicylic is gentle yet effective for blackheads and acne-prone skin. I’ve tried so many cleansers but this will forever be my favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as promised! I love the product but, as others have mentioned, the packaging is poor. It runs out of the tube. I lost so much of the product last time, that I have to transfer it to the bottle I saved from the toner.
