How To Use

Skinceuticals

Twice daily, apply a small amount of this exfoliating cleanser onto a wet face and neck using a light circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. If using in the morning, follow with a SkinCeuticals vitamin C serum and sunscreen. If using in the evening, follow with a SkinCeuticals corrective product or moisturizer.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    Aging skin prone to breakouts has a unique set of needs. As skin ages, it experiences a natural loss of moisture and slowdown in the cell turnover cycle, which may cause excess dead skin cells to clog pores and result in breakouts. However, many traditional blemish fighting ingredients have the potential to dry out skin. This can exacerbate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    Effective daily cleansing and exfoliation can help decongest pores and remove excess sebum and dead skin cells. Designed specifically for oily, combination, and aging skin, LHA Cleanser combines a blend of exfoliating and hydrating ingredients to address blemishes and visible signs of aging at the same time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate- Not Good This cleanser feels tingly when you use it, so it feels like it is working. I still had acne while using this cleanser. I finally went to an acne specialist and she recommended that I stop using this product because it contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate as an ingredient. This ingredient is listed as a "3" moderate chance of causing acne. I'm glad I stopped using this product, it is expensive & does not help with Acne!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best cleanser I've EVER USED! I bought this a few weeks ago and have never loved a cleaner more. It feels like it enters and flushes out every pore and leaves my skin feeling so refreshed with almost a minty/menthol feeling (which feels sooooo clean). I've had adult acne since I was 21 and this is the best product I've found for it. The only reason it is four stars instead of 5 is that the bottle itself does indeed suck, as other reviewers have mentioned. I'll probably buy a new bottle to put it in at amazon or walmart! Which is annoying and totally fixable by the company but will not stop me from buying this magical product. Worth every penny (but fix the bottle!!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Fast! Wow! All I can say is this product has given me my skin back and my confidence. I used this product for 3 days morning and night and it cleared my pesky forehead acne that I get around that time of month. I could not be happier with this product. It can be slightly drying so start with washing your face with it once a day, and increase as tolerated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleanser I absolutely love this cleanser. My face feels fabulous after using this gel. The only thing I don't like is the container. Because it's not a thick gel, you have to be extremely careful because it comes out so quickly, giving you an over abundance of cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackheads be gone! I am now on my second bottle of the LHA cleanser and it will forever be a part of my skincare routine! I have acne prone skin and also had a lot of blackheads on my nose. My skin is almost completely clear and I have almost zero blackheads on my nose now! IT IS AMAZING!!! I recommend it to all my friends. The price is great for the large size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Horrible packaging I completely agree with many others who are disappointed in the packaging of your LHA Cleanser. I too love the product however the leakage of the cleanser is very very frustrating and disappointing! I have invested in many of your products which are costly so to lose a portion of a product each time you use it may force me to look for another line of products. I should not have to re-bottle this product along with the toner (yes the design of this cap will also leak). I use your Retinol, CE Ferulic, Hyaluronic Acid and B5 Gel to name a few. It is a shame that I need to explore other skin care lines for a simple packaging defect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from eh The product packaging is definitely poor as some reviewers mentioned - a pump is probably best to combat this for that size of cleanser. The cleanser also contains sodium laureth sulfate, which used to be in a lot of shampoos and cleansers but a lot of products these days don't contain them due to widespread knowledge that it is drying. I found that the cleanser was okay - nothing revolutionary but worth mentioning that it is drying. Disappointing from such a reputable skincare company like Skinceuticals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best to clear skin. Worst packaging still I have been using the LHA cleanser for over 8 years. It's thick gel and menthol added make sure my skin feels completely clean and free from daily dirt and makeup. During dry season, I use exfoliating scrub with it to ensure my skin glows. At 43 years old, I know what does and doesn't work for my skin. This works. I use a regimen of Skinceuticals for my face, neck and chest. I'm constantly complimented on my glowing and clear skin. The only negative, the product packaging. It's terrible. Terrible. They've changed the bottle, still leaks. I don't mind paying for quantity products. I do mind when the packaging leaks my purchase. Skinceuticals: FIND ANOTHER PRODUCT MANUFACTURER. I shouldn't have to re-bottle this each time I buy another LHA cleanser. I'll continue to use your products. Please find a solution.
