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


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 2 out of 5 by from I want to love this cleanser My Facialist used this cleanser on me at my last facial and I loved how creamy, soothing, and luxurious it felt on my skin. She told me it removed makeup so I decided it would be a perfect evening cleanser - a soothing part of my evening skincare ritual and a makeup remover. BUT it doesn’t remove makeup. I follow the instructions - I apply to a damp face in a circular motion. And I’ve also tried applying it to a dry face the way my Facialist does. But once I tone, my cotton ball still contains a significant amount of makeup. I will have to find another way to use it - probably after using a cleaning water/oil. Very disappointed because the texture is lovely but it’s but functional. Apparently this is a common complaint.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality product but not gentle for me This cleanser is creamy as smells great but i found that it burned my skin. I did not find it gentle at all. I assume it is because of the high concentration of orange oil with the addition of glycolic acid. I will be returning and getting the nurishing cleanser. I love so many products from skinceuticals so this one is just not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Cleanser, Ever This cleanser is very thorough at removing makeup without stripping the skin. It leaves it so soft and clean. I've tried the Rejuvenating Cleanser (also good) but I came back to this formula - I truly love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t live up to the description Usually the products by Skinceuticals are highly recommended although very pricey. I was hoping I would get what I paid for but, unfortunately I am very disappointed. Firstly, I have to use about two pumps to have enough to wash my face every time. Secondly, my skin turns red after using it and still is somewhat dry. Lastly, I barely wear any makeup but the little amount I do wear, it doesn’t wash off. I find myself having to use a second product to take off my non-waterproof mascara.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gentle but doesn’t remove makeup This is gentle for my sensitive skin. It smells great, and it washes clean. However the bottle claims it can remove long wear makeup. I don’t wear long wear makeup, just “regular” makeup, and time and again the cotton ball I use with my toner is dirty with what didn’t wash off with this cleanser. I could remove my makeup first but I don’t want to add another layer of products to my sensitive skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as described I actually enjoy washing my face with this cleanser. Soothing texture and scent.
