Rated 1 out of 5 by Roxsen from Disappointed!!!!!!!! I am not sure if the Clarifying Cleanser that I used was discontinued, but this is definitely not it. This does not feel like it cleanses. It does not feel like it exfoliates. It leaves a film on my face. This is the first time I have been completely disappointed in a SkinCeuticals product. I have used them for more than 10 years now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by achancey7 from Nothing like the old clarifying cleanser I respect that Skinceuticals removed the microbeads from their old Clarifying Cleanser, but this is a poor replacement. It doesn't feel like it cleans my face, leaves a residue, and smells terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Callahan from Clear, Soft, Smooth Complexion I am a die-hard Skinceutical fan. This company has transformed my skin. The exfoliating cleanser is everything and more. I have congested, sensitive skin and this cleanser gently pulls out and clears the oils on my face leaving it soft and smooth. Unlike exfoliating cleansers from other brands that I have tried this cleanser leaves your face feeling moisturized and fresh rather than dry and peeling. Thank you, Skinceuticals for another beautiful product.
