Hi there! Thank you for your interest in our Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser. This product does not contain salicylic acid. We recommend checking out our Skin Renewing Nightly Exfoliating Treatment.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product works OK. It's not the best for my skin type however. It doesn't do the work that I needed to do for my skin. It does get my skin nice and clean. However, I do not think I will be purchasing this.

I received this product in exchange for my reviews thanks to Bzzagent. I had no issues with this cleanser. It works very well for me and my skin is very clean afterwards. I have sensitive skin and it didn't bother me at all. I give it four stars because it doesn't foam up, it's a creamy consistency. I like the size of the product, I know it will last a long time. I don't need a lot of product either, just a dime size!

I have now used this product a few times. I have neutral feelings about this cleanser. I couldn't get this cleanser to foam as nicely as I usually prefer for foam cleansers. No noticeable differences in my skin or blemishes. It did leave my skin feeling a little stripped.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the thicker consistency of this cleanser and that it cleanses without making my skin feel dried out afterwards. It has helped reduce the oil and blackheads around my nose. The fragrance free formula is always a plus since fragrance introduces unnecessary chemicals.

Hi there! Thank you for sharing your experience with our Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser. We understand how disappointing it is when a product doesn't provide the results you were hoping for. Feedback is very important to us and helps us improve all our products. We recommend you check out our Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser.

I prefer the cleanser

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I don't have anything negative to say about this. For me, though, I just prefer the regular cleanser over the cream cleanser. I thought I may like this for my dryer areas, but the other is gentle enough to handle my dry and oily spots. I'm sure someone with dry skin would like this.
