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 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 Great cleanser I first bought this after my microdermabrasion session and I’ve been hooked on it since! It smells great! It moisturizes your skin so nice and leaves skin feeling fresh and clean! It’s a winner in my book.

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)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pleasure to use. I've been using the "Gentle Cleanser" for over 1 year, after a Fraxel treatment and love it. The scent, texture, and easy pump bottle make the process of cleaning my face a pleasurable experience. I'm 70 with combination skin and appreciate this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle and effective Using it for the first two weeks love the smell and have combined it with the toner and my face has visibly less discoloration and uneven tone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed & refreshed! I bought this face wash to replace the NARS one I had used for a while, which also smelled citrusy and I loved it, so I was excited to try this one. This face wash leaves my dry skin feeling refreshed and moisturized after, unlike most face washes which make my face feel tight and dry! I will definitely continue to use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So gentle with my skin!! My skin was peeling a lot and I was freaking out. I started using this and it was gentle and effective. Didn't clear my acne but did help with redness and peeling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This stuff is fine but it sure costs a pretty penny! I dont think Id buy again. On the plus side, doesnt irritate my sensitive combo skin. It suds up a lot which Im not a huge a fan of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Clean really well; however, it leaves my face a little dry, what I did not expect was that the product was based on cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a nice and clean face wash. I use it in the mornings or in between the day. It smells nice and it wont over dry your skin. A little pricey but this company is worth every penny

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a really great gentle cleanser! Leaves the skin clean and hydrated. Has a nice smell. Since it is a cream cleanser it is a little hard to get it to lather, but it still took off all my make up. Nice to use when skin is dry because it is non-irritating.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The product works well, but it doesnt necessarily smooth my skin. I was using this until my dermatologist suggested I use CeraVe. I feel like there are other products more cost effective for the same results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I received this product in sample size from a rep at the company I was working for! I loved it so much that I saved most of it as I was recovering in the hospital from having my baby! It has a silky texture when applicating and cleans without being too harsh! I love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This feels like washing your face with lotion. I can't imagine a more gentle soap. I have very oily skin and this does somehow make my skin feel clean despite lacking any of the normal foaminess of a cleanser. It definitely needs to be used with a makeup remover to unclog your pores if you wear makeup, but it's very pleasant to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is what i first started using in my teen years. It was the first dermatoligst recommended brand for my teen acne and a gentle cleanser. It is soft and gentle on the skin and great for all skin types. We used this brand in school as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells very nice and cleanses well - maybe a little too heavy for my skin but I use especially when skin is feeling dry . The pump bottle is very convenient to use .
