Ask a Question
A fabulous, oil-free, all-purpose anti-aging exfoliating cleanser containing a gentle form of Glycolic Acid. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Helps clarify the skin and smooth out rough texture.

Key Ingredients & Benefits:
  • 3% Glycolic Acid (AHA) - Helps exfoliate dead surface skin cells and stimulate cellular turnover.
  • Allantoin - Helps soothe and calm the skin.
  • Pro Vitamin B5 - Helps moisturize, nourish and clarify.
Combination, oily and acne prone skin, use once or twice daily. Normal, dry and sun damaged skin, use two to three times a week at first, increasing usage if well-tolerated. Apply a small amount of cleansing gel over moistened skin with the fingertips. Work into a rich, foamy lather and massage gently for one minute. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Follow with PTR treatment product, moisturizer and/or sun protection.

Precautions: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. Some mild dryness may occur in very sensitive or dry individuals, which is normal. Mild dryness may be reduced by using the product less frequently or alternating with a milder PTR facial wash. Not recommended for very sensitive skin, eczema, seborrhea, rosacea, or Retin-A users.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

      This item was recommended by the skin therapist at Ulta. This is used to combat my body acne - which has cleared up immensely. I have used it here and there on my face, but discontinued due to dryness issues. No other issues.

              This product dried out my skin within 3 days of usage. The "skin expert" said it would help control my oily skin which it did but it also caused me to break out. I brought back this product! If you have very sensitive skin I don't recommend this product.

                  I am over 50 with acne prone skin still. This face wash makes my skin feel smooth, clean and perfectly balanced. I have used other glycolic washes that have been too harsh. You need very little to wash your entire face and neck.

                  • Q:

                    Is there a specific regimen for usage recommended with this? Would you mind telling me what other products would be compatible? I have combo skin & blackheads which is what I've heard this glycolic acid is good for, but I didn't know what else to combine with it.

                      A:

                      Glycolic Acid 3% Facial wash is a great overall rejuvenating treatment cleanser for those who would like the exfoliating, anti-aging and skin-evening benefits of AHAs. It is appropriate for someone with combination skin. Depending on facial dryness, sensitivity and ingredient preference we can also recommend the Irish Moor Mud Purifying Cleanser, Anti-aging Cleansing Gel or 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid Wash (for acne-prone skin). As for treatment and moisturizer, you could benefit from Viz1000 Hydrating Serum, Pore Putty, Moor Mud Mask and Ultra-Light Oil-Free Moisturizer. We hope this helps! :-)
