sk:n Facial Exfoliating Cleanser for oily skin is a gentle cleanser that exfoliates oily and acne-prone skin. It contains glycolic acid, salicylic acid and glycerin to remove dead skin cells, dissolve oil, clear pores, moisturise and rejuvenate the skin.


Product details

Exfoliation is the technique of removing the top layer of mostly dead, epidermal cells on the outer surface of the skin to expose fresher brighter skin. The benefits of exfoliation include:

 

  • Giving a fresher, brighter look to the skin by removing dead skin cells
  • Refining thicker skin
  • Softening lines and wrinkles
  • Lightening some dark marks

Key features and benefits of sk:n Facial Exfoliating Cleanser for oily skin

  • Gently exfoliates the top, dead layer of the skin
  • Reveals softer smoother skin
  • Skin is left clean and comfortable and in perfect condition to maximise the effects of other skincare products

Key active ingredients

  • Glycolic acid — a gentle chemical exfoliant derived from sugar cane that removes dead skin cells to clear pores and improve the skin
  • Glycerin - a natural moisturiser
  • Salicylic acid - to absorb oil and clear debris that clog pores

Clinical studies on the effectiveness of AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) of which glycolic acid is one, have shown:

  • They accelerate the body’s natural exfoliation process
  • Stimulate the production of collagen

This is especially important for oily and acne prone skin as AHAs help eliminate trapped oil and dirt that creates acne.

How to use

Best used in the evening by massaging a small amount into the face, then rinsing with water. Care needs to be taken to avoid the eyes. If there is contact with the eye rinse immediately with water. Given the exfoliating nature of glycolic acid it is possible that a temporary tingling sensation is experienced upon application. Not to be used on inflamed, irritated skin, particularly after sun exposure. The salicylic content of the Facial Exfoliating Cleanser — oily skin at 0.2%, means that it is not suitable for children under 3.

    Amazing product! After spending loads and loads of various acne products I have finally found something that not only gets rid of my acne but also helps my scars fade faster. Originally only bought this product to use temporarily until I get some peels done in the summer, but now I reckon I might just continue to use it. As part of my routine I only use 2/3 times a week, I have found excessive use for me causes my skin to become extremely dry and brittle, but if used moderately the results are amazing. Couldn't recommend this enough (use with Vitamin Rich Cleanser also!)

    A must have for oily skin. I have been using it for 2years and my skin keeps getting better and better everyday. it gently cleanse the face and make it lighter thanks to the salicylic and glycolic acids and softens it thanks to the glycerine. I use it every evening as part of my skin care routine and use the vitamin rich cleanser in the morning... would recommend it to anyone who suffer from acne or spots. I love sk:n products

    Despite not being advertised as having benefits for acne this exfoliating cleanser has done wonders for my skin. I had quite painful recurring acne, this cleanser has cleared it up much better than any other cleanser I have tried. A must have, leaves skin feeling lovely and looking much brighter. Cannot recommend enough!
