key ingredients
Key Ingredient 1
Salicylic acid: This beta-hydroxy acid refines the pores and helps reduce acne.
Key Ingredient 2
Glycolic and mandelic acids: These alpha hydroxy acids help loosen the bonds that hold dead cells on the skin, speed up the natural exfoliation process, and allow fresh, new skin to appear.
Key Ingredient 3
Microbeads: Our small, rounded, polyethylene beads effectively exfoliate without scratching or irritating skin and wash off easily.
Key Ingredient 4
Potassium azelaoyl diglycinate: A derivative of azelaic acid, this ingredient helps prevent skin discoloration caused by acne without over-drying the skin.

This is THE cleanser!! Do NOT hesitate to buy this cleanser! This is the ONLY cleanser out there that, I guarantee you, will help clear your skin. I have used it for 5 years now and I often get the crazy notion to save myself the money and switch to a cheaper cleanser. I notice an immediate change in my skin and go crawling back to Skinceuticals Clarifying cleanser. This is the best and only cleanser out there for skin that is oily, acne prone, or even aging and it is still gentle! Trust me, I have tried EVERYTHING from department store brands to infomercial lies to drugstore junk! July 5, 2013
Has both quality and quanity I went to school for Esthetics and my skin went through a lot of things. I was breaking out, my skin got sensitized, and my skin tone was so uneven.I got so frustrated so I went to my esthetician and she actually recommended this product. I first started using this product 4 months ago and now I occasionally get a breakout here and there. I am only really stuck with uneven skin tone but even that is improving with time. I use it morning and night along with the night cream for oily combo skin. *I also made a review for it* This cleanser is great. It didn't make my skin dry at all like a lot of other products with salicylic in it. When I bought it I was desperate to try it regardless of the price and I have actually repurchased it because it works and one bottle lasts me 2 months!!! A little goes a long way and it i use it religiously everyday!! So really its like spending a little over $15 a month for this face wash that is a great quality and really works. For anyone who happens to have a Clarasonic (if you don't I recommend buying one. I have had mine for at 3 years and it really really does clean your face a lot better) I use this face wash with it and it works great! July 17, 2012
