How To Use

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.

Key Ingredients

  • LHA (Caproloyl Salicylic Acid)
  • Glycolic acid
  • Salicylic acid

A lipo-hydroxy acid, LHA exfoliates the skin, decongests clogged pores, refines the skin’s surface, and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product but not the new packaging! I have used this for years. I have aging acne prone skin and this is the best! I am disappointed in the new packaging. We need a pump bottle for this product. I transfer it into another flip top travel bottle. The new packaging results in more product than you need coming out with each use. This leads to waste. It appears to me that the company repackaged it so you would use more and buy it more often. That is very frustrating from a loyal SkinCeuticals customer, especially when the products are already pricey. P.S. confused about the Nickname. Trying to post my review using same nickname I used for a review I just posted on another product and I cannot use the same nickname.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product // Poor (new) packaging My skin has always been very sensitive and in the past it has been difficult to find a product that checks all the boxes for me. It is such a relief to have found a product that works so well. It cleanses thoroughly and without drying or irritating and foams up just enough, but not too much. I've used this cleanser for a little over two years and continue to be happy with the result. I use it in combination with the LHA toner (great product as well). I will say that the new tube packaging has been a huge disappointment. Its very difficult to manage how much comes out and it leaks quite a bit. Please repackage in the pump bottle! I wish I would have kept one of the old bottles to transfer it into.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything I need in a cleanser I have a consistent history of acne prone skin and I've tried everything under the sun from medications to topical. This cleanser is the only thing that has ever worked on my skin! It keeps my breakouts at bay, but doesn't over-dry. I love using this cleaner with the LHA toner, the combination packs a punch that my skin desperately needs! The only down side is the company recently changed the bottle to this tube-type thing and it wastes a TON of product no matter how your store or pour it. I'm really hoping it's just this one particular bottle, otherwise I'll be pouring the contents into a bottle instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost too lightweight I first got introduced to this product while getting a facial at a salon. Before this product, I've been just using drug-store products and they never seem to work after a while so I tried this product. I love this cleanser, it is so nice and soft and will hopefully last a long time. I only gave this product 3 stars because it is very lightweight and delicate, too delicate. I started to realize that most of the cleanser was almost gone because it was leaking out of the top! You have to be really careful when opening it and setting it down. I was very disappointed at what bottle they decided to use. Leaked almost half of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser for combination/oily skin Hands down best cleanser I have ever used. It actually removes all of my make-up without making my skin look dehydrated. It does not take much, just a small drop goes a long way. The 8 ounces lasts a long time. I have tried many department store brands along with other skincare companies that are pretty popular these days. None of them remove all of my make-up and clarify my skin like LHA Cleansing Gel. My info: I am 46 years old and have occasional breakouts. My skin has become more dry in the winter months in the last few years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this after a recommendation from my sister/esthetician. I’ve been using it twice a day every day for a week coupled with retinol twice a week nightly, and have seen an improvement in my skin. My only suggestion is that they change the packaging. The face wash is more of a liquid less of a gel so this upside down packaging doesn’t work well. You end up using way more than you should because of the cap being located on the bottom. I’d like to see a redesign of the bottle that creates less product waste but other than that a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cleanser!! I swear by your products! I lost confidence in my early 30's when my skin changed and I started suffering from acne. I heard about skinceuticals through social media, figured Id give it try.. Was a little over my price range but was totally worth!! It helped my skin. Ive been a loyal customer for years now. Period. Wont use anything else. So, why change the packaging / bottles? I hate how much I pay because the cleaner gets wasted by how much comes out. Please FIX ASAP!! Go back to the pump or 8oz bottles. Buyers: It leaks so my advice is prop upside down and by gentle on the squeeze when using. A little goes a long way. This one is great for acne prone skin, redness. I can honestly say the entire skin care line is awesome and I personally have seen the difference with every product ive used

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing cleanser, terrible new packaging I LOVE this cleanser and have found it to be really effective--the low stars are due to the new packaging. I have previously purchased it directly at my dermatologist's office, and came on the website to see if there was any chance the old packaging was available. Alas. Looks like others are also frustrated with the way this new tube leaks. SkinCeuticals, get back to the old bottle!
