              I bought this for my daughter on Saturday and by Thursday her skin is smoothing out and the acne has gone away. I actually went back for the kit on Thursday, and she is now using the whole line of products. This is amazing, gentle skin cleanser. I love it. And her skin is looking amazing as before puberty

                  Absolutely love it. Like most women I've been searching for the perfect face cleanser and since I've had my son I've been struggling with acne which I never had as a child or teenager. I found something that works I'm really happy and will continue to purchase it just wish they would let us know if they didn't test on animals.

                        Thank you for your inquiry. Both of these cleansers contain salicylic acid. Foaming Wash from our teen line will be slightly more hydrating and have more botanicals to sooth and calm the skin. They are both foaming gel cleansers.

                        Hello Katie,
                        Foaming Wash will help with excess oil and breakouts. It is also important to exfoliate regularly and use a clay based masque to absorb excess oil and keep follicles clear. Pore Control Scrub should be used 3-5 times a week. Massage a pea size amount on skin and then let it sit for 5- 10 minutes and remove with water. It is important to be consistent with you home care when dealing with acne.
