Skin is left feeling soft, moisturized, and primed for in-office treatments and at-home cosmeceutical use.

  • Removes long-wear eye and face makeup
  • Non-comedogenic formula ideal for daily use
  • Paraben-, sulfate-, soap-, synthetic-fragrance-, dye- and alcohol-free
  • Suitable for dry, normal, sensitive, reactive, or post-procedure skin
  • Ideal complement to in-office treatment such as chemical peels, intense pulsed light, non-ablative laser, microdermabrasion, microneedling, and injectables

How To Use


Twice daily, apply a small amount to a wet face and neck with light circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with water.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    Dry, rough, or tight skin can occur at all ages, and may contribute to a dull complexion. It is caused by a variety of factors including lipid depletion, dry air, harsh soaps, in-office procedures, or use of highly exfoliating topical skincare products. As a result, dry skin has special cleansing needs since many traditional surfactants have the potential to strip skin and exacerbate concerns.

    Designed specifically for dry, sensitive, or post-procedure skin, Gentle Cleanser is a moisturizing cleanser that lifts makeup and debris while delivering essential hydration to skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Want to give it five stars but.... I love this cleanser. It is the best thing I have found for my rosacea. It is so gentle. However, Skinceuticals decreased the amount of product almost 20% (was 8.33 ounces and now is 6.8 ounces) for the same price. Also, the container is not as friendly for getting the last remaining product out. The container is not very hard plastic with sharp angles. The old container was softer and more flexible and rounded so you could get the last several uses out of the bottle by flipping over or cutting it open. Hard to do that now with the new container. Because of the decrease in product size, I will not be buying again. So, I am on the hunt for a gentle cleanser that will not irritate my sensitive rosacea skin. Most unfortunate becaue the Skinceuticals gentle cleanser is amazing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gentle Cleanser - Old vs. New Product I finally ran out of the old Gentle Cleanser product, and I have now been using this new formulation for a few weeks. Here's the verdict: The good - The new cleanser cleans very thoroughly and gently, without drying out the skin, just like the old product. I am very sensitive to smell, and the light, orange-like smell remains the same. If anything, it may be a bit more faint than it used to be. The not-so-good - The new cleanser costs the same as the old cleanser, but it's a smaller bottle, so you only get about 80% of what you used to get for the same price. The old cleanser was fairly thick, so a little bit went a very long way. The new cleanser is less thick, so you need to use more of it each time. I still like SkinCeutical’s Gentle Cleanser, and maybe new users will rate it more highly. But, when I’m done with this bottle, I’ll be on the search for a different gentle cleanser. I’m disappointed by the changes in this new formulation, and I look forward to finding a new favorite cleanser at a lower price point.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not remove eye make up I love the regular Gentle Cleanser product. Was so looking forward to this new version that is supposed to remove 'long wearing face and eye makeup'. No more separate product to remove my eye makeup! This product flat out does not remove eye makeup. Note that I do NOT wear waterproof eye makeup. This product does not remove eye makeup any better than the original Gentle Cleanser. So if you are thinking of buying this to replace that product because of the added benefit, don't! So disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring back the old packaging I love the product! It is gentle and effective, like all skinceutical products. However, I miss the old packaging!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work on eye make up I only wear mascara so it's not worth it for me. I like that it doesn't dry my skin but it's pricey and I stopped using it. Even with using more product and washing my face twice, this wash still doesn't doesn't remove anything, only smears the mascara and I end up with the raccoon look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mold Growing on Cleanser I have use the gentle cleanser for years and love it. I am dissapointed in the new bottle. I have had it for a few weeks now and keep it in the shower and noticed today that there was mold inside growing on the cleanser. I think the bottle is poorly designed allowing condensation to get inside through the pump and allowing the mold to grow. The cleanser is still great but hopefully they can fix this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I have very dry skin,but still get pretty oily - the epitome of combination skin. This is the gentlest cleanser I’ve found that removes dirt & debris without drying. At night I use coconut oil to remove tinted mineral sunblock (chemical sunblocks make me horribly oily) & eye makeup, then this cleanser to get residue off. And this cleanser again in the morning. I’ve been using it for years and love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Less for the money! I like the product, but SkinCeuticals has reduced the amount of product from 250ml to 200ml while maintaining the same price.
