Product Details

Gentle Cleanser is a creamy, mild cleanser formulated with an emollient-rich surfactant and 3% concentration of key ingredients combining allantoin, glycerin, and orange oil to soften and restore skin’s surface. This non-foaming, gentle skin cleanser efficiently removes impurities and long-wear face and eye makeup without any traces of residue. Skin is left feeling soft, moisturized, and primed for in-office treatments and at-home cosmeceutical use.

  • Softens skin while cleansing and lifting surface debris
  • 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

Skinceuticals

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 3 out of 5 by from Nice face wash, horrible packaging I have been using this product for over a year and find it gentle and cleansing for my sensitive skin. However, the new packaging makes it very hard to get the bottom 1/4 amount of the cleanser out for use. The pump cannot reach the bottom of the bottle causing you to have to open and tip the bottle over-very wasteful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price and lasts a long time Very gentle on dry old skin. Creamy but doesn’t get too foamy so it gets in your hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not expect that I purchased this cleanser cause I get RF microneedling a lot and I need a gentle cleanser to remove very delicate make up for a week after the treatment. But IT DOESN'T REMOVE MAKE UP, it's not helpful at all! For this price it's very disappointing. I am only using it when I don't wear make up and I still have to use it with another cleanser. This way it is definitely not a product for sensitive skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smooth but not very cleansing I'm sure this product is great for other people but not me. This is the only skinceutical product I am not fully satisfied with. It's texture is lovely and smells great but it doesn't clean very well. I have to use at least 7 pumps just to cover my face and neck and then using a clarisonic, my skin is still dirty! I won't be buying this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cleanser is very nice. I wish it was scentless. The milky white consistency is pleasant and the pump is honestly so easy to use and mess free. I’ve repurchased this product several times and recommend to every person for any skin concern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my every day cleanser and I'm in love! I was using Neutrogena for awhile and many others I'd find in stores and this is the first that I've wanted to keep in my routine. My skin just feels healthier and I love how lightweight and gentle this product feels on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! The Gentle Cleanser Cream is exactly that - gentle. It does not dry my skin nor does it irritate my skin. I absolutely love the smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this cleanser, my skin is combo and it works great. I been using DE products and notice that my skin needs a little bit more of moisture in the mornings, so this is my morning cleanser and it’s amazing, it’s so easy to use, it doesn’t make any foam, it’s has a creamy consistency, It is non-irritating, soothing, calming and purifying. It leaves my skin refreshed without stripping my skin. I am looking forward to using it after a chemical exfoliation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Facial Cleanser I have been using the Gentle Cleanser for over 5 years now. I think it is the best on the market for anyone who has sensitive skin. These bottles seem to last a while and are well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply perfect I have been using Skinceuticals products for roughly 6 years. In that time, I have tried multiple cleaners and settled on Gentle Cleanser for the simple fact that (at age 44) my skin has never looked better! I am constantly being asked what product I use. I have gifted this cleanser to friends and they quickly understand why I just can’t live without it. There’s no scent so that’s a plus for those of us with sensitive noses. Best of all, the gentle feel of this non-foaming cleanser, the way it glides over my skin and carries away unwanted dirt and oil without drying my skin, makes it an absolutely essential part of my skincare regimen. This is, in my opinion, the best product in the Skinceuticals line. And that is saying something with items like CE Ferulic and Hydrating Balm in the running!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best cleanser I have been a skinceuticals customer for over 15 years. I love this cleanser and it is the only one I will use. However, since they changed the bottle packaging At least 25% of cleanser is left at bottom and I am scrapping it out for weeks. Please put it in a better bottle!!!! Also consider creating a travel bottle option!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells like grapefruit ! So gentle and so effective at removing oils and makeup. Cleans my skin with out making it feel stripped. This was a decent price for the amount of product you get. I will be re purchasing once I finish the bottle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this cleanser. Like it says, it’s very gentle. I’d recommend it for all skin types. It’s not stripping and leaves you feeling clean

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This cleanser smells great! I think of fresh orange groves when I use it. It’s tough to mentally get past a cleanser that doesn’t foam but I feel like it works great. I definitely feel more moisture retention than with a foaming cleanser which makes my dry skin happy. I just wish it worked better at removing mascara.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a review of the Skinceuticals Gentle Cleanser Cream, which now comes in a transparent hard plastic (glass-like) container with pump. This product works great with my sensitive and oily/combo skin. It feels luxuriously creamy, has a nice citrusy scent, and doesn’t leave me with breakouts or excess oil. Two major downsides include the price point (although all Skinceuticals products are pricey) and its lack of effectiveness at removing make-up, which I wear very little of. If you wear medium-to-heavy make up or simply want your face to feel super clean, I recommend you use a micellar water/make-up remover before this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleanser that is gentle enough for all skin types. Doesn’t strip the skin or cause break outs. No improvement needed for this one. Plus, the bottle lasts forever, you don’t need much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cleanser for sensitive skin! I happy invest in this product every time I need more. I have very sensitive skin and this creamy cleanser works really well for me. It removes my make up (I use YoungBlood cosmetics and non-waterproof mascara) and leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth, and fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothing and hydrating! This product has done wonders for my dehydrated skin! I’ve been using it for a month and notice a significant difference. At 52, my skin hasn’t looked this good in years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect cleaner! I’ve been using Gentle Cleanser for almost 4 years. I’ve tried other cleansers, but I always come back to Skinceuticals Gentle Cleanser! I’ve given up trying others!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Sensitive Skin I love this stuff. I have been using it for years and it is the only facial cleanser I have ever found that does not dry or irritate my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Cleanser I’ve been using this cleanser for a couple years and I love it! It doesn’t strip skin moisture, and my skin always feel soft and silky after use. It has a nice subtle orange scent which is pleasant without being overly scented. As this is a cream cleanser it does not foam much, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t doing it’s job! Great for a variety of skin types. For reference I have combination skin and live in a dry climate (Denver)
