𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐦𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐒𝐀 𝐜𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫: •salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid that exfoliates on the surface and in the pores. Also an anti-inflammatory agent. •humectants such as glycerin and hydrolysed hyaluronic acid to aid skin hydration •3 essential ceramides (AP, NP, EOP) who all play an important role in having a healthy skin barrier and keeping the skin hydrated •gluconolactone is a PHA to help gently lift dead skin cells for smooth skin 𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐦𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐒𝐀 𝐜𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫: •smoothing out skin texture •exfoliates whilst building skin barrier to reduce irritation •increasing skin hydration •helps even out skin tone •repairs damaged skin barrier •effective for reducing the appearance of blackheads 𝐌𝐲 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 I am a MASSIVE fan of salicylic acid since I’m quite scared of AHA’s on my skin, so this cleanser was a must. I had bought this along with my first ever established skin routine, so as my face was being introduced to a lot new products, I went through a purging stage. This cleanser not only helped subside the purging, but also reduced the amount of breakouts I’d receive. The big bottle is a beautiful size for the price, and I would definitely recommend this to congested skin and those who are new to BHA.... Read more

There’s nothing I can flaw from my own experiance but do build up tolerance if you are new to BHA! Start with alternating nightly (3 times a week) until your skin is comfortable with more usage.... Read more

When I first use it everyday , my skin got really dry tight. Then I stop using it for everyday and slowly built up my tolerance because at the same time I'm using tretinoin too. So my skin tend to be drier and red. Make sure you moisturise well after SA wash.... Read more

* This cleanser has a simple yet effective ingredient list. (Tap to see whole review.) ✨ Key ingredients: * Salicylic acid: BHA (exfoliant), anti-inflammatory * Glycerin: A humectant, drawing moisture in *Ceramides: forming skinbarrier, keeping moisture locked in * Niacinamide: Brighntening, Oil control *Gluconolactone: PHA (exfoliant) * Hyaluronic Acid: Humectant ✨Texture: It is a liquid gel cleanser. If you rub it a lot on your skin, it’ll get a little bubbly. ✨ Experience: It’s very easy to spread onto the skin and you don’t need a lot of product to cover the whole face. It prevents small beak outs and helps with Sebaceous filaments (will not clear them completely, it’s only a cleanser!) ✨Price+Size: 236 ml/7,9 oz. Ranges between 7-11€. Available in many online shops/drugstores and thats what i love about it! ✨ Conclusion: A good Cleanser for people with lightly acneproneskin! It might not fully clean deep acne vulgaris but help prevent blemishes. I personally love and use this cleanser every day and my skin is slowly recovering from break outs! 4/5 🌟 UPDATE: I love this cleanser but i found bit of a rusty, reddish liquid inside of the bottle. Maybe Mold? I will therefore withdraw a star.... Read more

It smells like rubber and i don‘t like the texture of it. It‘s also not cruelty-free, therefore i‘ll withdraw a 🌟 UPDATE: It seems like mold or something grew ik the pump. Picture attached. I love how this cleanser performs but this is an absolute No-Go!... Read more

Great product for oily + acne probe skin. Cleanse nice and thoroughly, and it even clear my blackhead after wash. Salicylid acid is best known as a BHA, which get into your pores and get rid of impurity and excess oil. Well done Cerave, this product is a holy grail when used consistently!... Read more

It is a bit drying... always moisturize after use Do not use it daily as it is a exfoliant. Use it 2-3 times a week or what best suited for your skin type.... Read more

good review
- quite affordable in my country (germany) considering its a pretty big bottle - no fragrance = no irritation - my skin feels cleansed without feeling tight or dry (I have combo skin, so I was worried that my cheeks would feel dry, which they never did when using this product) EDIT: i have now finally emptied rthis and stand corrected: i noticed that it actually did dry out my face after months of using it, so i would recommend using this only every second day or so and to use a more hydrating cleanser on the other days if u have combo skin - a little actually goes a long way! it foams up nicely and you do not need to use a full pump for your face - long shelf life (12 months) edit: please use it for at least 30 seconds on your face to give the ingredients time to work :) this goes for any cleanser! dont just put it on and rinse off immediately... Read more
bad review
honestly? I have not had any bad experiences with this product. I would recommend using an oil-based cleanser before this tho, because it does not remove make up or sun screen EDIT: may dry out your skin after long-term use, (i have combo skin), had to stop using this for abojt two weeks because my cheeks were super irritated...

Affordable, good cleanser, incorporating salicylic acid in a wash off form. This is the perfect introduction to those who want to start chemical exfoliants as washing it off after 30s will cause minimal irritation :) Foams nicely and cleanses very well without stripping the skin... Read more
bad review
Not cruelty free. Will recommend to newbies to chemical exfoliants, however more experienced users may find leave on exfoliants work better <3... Read more
