  • "I've been using this product off and on for years. I have sensitive skin and deep pores, so gentle chemical exfoliants are the only thing that I can use on a regular basis to combat clogged pores. I still have the sebaceous filaments, but this cleanser keeps them from getting ungodly large. The amount of glycolic acid is pretty low in comparison to most AHA cleansers so this can be used daily for most people, although I would definitely start out using it only a few days a week at first. Some may find this cleanser drying, so I would recommend having a good, non comedogenic moisturizer on hand" in 18 reviews

This is a good cleanser. I just don’t use it much, why? It didn’t meet my expectations as I thought it would.
The packaging is ok and I also think for what it does. It is way too pricey. I would recommend the “Brand” because there are other good products in the line that I’ve had success with. I just didn’t care for this cleanser for my acne prone sensitive skin.

I struggle with acne as an adult. I have tried different acne washes but this is the first time I had a cleanser to work. I purchased it from maceys in a sample package. After my sample was gone I purchased the full size product. I will definitely continue to purchase this as long as it keeps this adult acne at bay.

There is not enough I could say about this product! Although it is a bit pricey, it is well worth it! I used this on a weekly basis and I saw a dramatic change in my face glow and texture. I recommend this product to splurge on and enjoy. Don’t forget to moisturize after!

Absolutely obsessed with the entire line!!!! I wish the price wasn't so high... but it's so very worth it. I typically order this through I've found it on Amazon as well. The brand is amazing...I've tried a good bit of their products and they all have met or exceeded my expectations. This product included. I'm about to be 31 with an extremely stressful job in an ICU as a nurse...I work 13 hour shifts, get very little sleep, could use some better overall nutrition and in the summer I'm a beach bum sun worshiper...and engine who sees me even with no makeup on would swear to you I couldn't possibly be a day past my mid 20's.

This is my absolute favorite face wash. I have pretty acne prone skin and this does wonders I could not live without. It has no smell and cleans beautifully. I can feel it do a deep clean without hurting or causing any other blemishes to appear. I don’t know how I ever did without. I never leave home without it when traveling. The only thing I have an issue with is the actual bottle it leaks so I have to put in baggy. Price is reasonable and it lasts a long time. Definitely recommend and definitely a repurchase

Love this face wash. I have combination skin and mostly get breakouts on my cheeks. I always use this face wash when I feel my pimples come on and I swear they go down faster because of this product. Well worth the price!

I love this brand! I have used a lot of the products for PTR. However if you have dry skin I recommends you don’t use this cleanser every day. It will dry out your skin and irritate it. Use this once or twice a week.

A great cleanser, used this in middle school while I was going through puberty. Took out all of the funk in my middle school face. Very pricey and very harsh on the skin, considering that it has 3% glycolic acid (the most an off-the-counter product can obtain), and can be drying if used everyday so possibly using this a few times out of the week can be good. But all around a great product.

I like the consistency of this wash. I love it when facial cleansers are a bit more like a gel so it does not slide off the face as easily. I feel like this cleans pretty thoroughly but I feel like my face has felt smoother after cleansing with other low percentage acid/enzyme cleansers. I like that this product lasts a long while and that I could find it in good ol’ Marshall’s.
