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 5 out of 5 by from Best everyday cleanser This cleanser doesn’t not irritate even after a second go, cleans thoroughly, and smells lovely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not clean skin Bought this because they are out of the cleanser I usually use. This claims to remove makeup even long wearing makeup but it does not do what it claims. I don’t wear long wearing make either and even after washing my face my eye makeup is smeared all over my face and when I use the toner afterward there is makeup all over it. It does however leave your skin feeling moisturized which is why I gave it 1 star. Don’t waist your money on this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product Bad Package! I really wanted to love this cleanser! It almost meets my expectations, nice essential oil smell, creamy texture and soothing feeling...However, I hate the package! The pump stopped work when there was still half of the product in the bottle and no matter what I tried it just couldn’t pump any cream out. Now I have to twist open the pump cap and use the straw to dig into the slim bottle and get some cleanser out each time. What a bummer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from the pump does not work Hi!! my mom and I both purchased this product and the pump does not work. They are brand new and they do not work. We keep pumping the dispenser and none of the facewash comes out. This is defect.... what do you suggest we do. this needs to be fixed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too gentle? Agree with other reviewers that the scent is very nice, slightly citrus. It reminds me of getting a facial and seems exactly the type of cleanser that would be used in that setting. Having said that. I don't feel that my skin is actually as clean as it could be. I use a Clarisonic and it doesn't seem super compatible. Perhaps I'm just too used to my foaming cleanser (they were out, thus the reason I tried this one), which whips up bubbles and always makes my face feel clean. If you have super sensitive skin this may be a great product, but for me it's a little too low key.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product - would be better without fragrance. I have been using SkinCeuticals for many years and love the brand. I wish they’d eliminate fragrance. Not necessary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful face cleaner for sensitive skin I am extremely happy with this facial cleaner. I have very sensitive, older (65 years old) fragile skin, and suffer from rosacea. I find this cleanser has a very smooth and light weight texture which leaves my skin feeling very clean. The light fragrance is very pleasant as well.
