    Comments about Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser:

    The Exuviance line is a tad bit on the pricey side for me but I had to start investing more for my skin health and this is it! Well worth every penny. So far I've been using it for about 2 months and I saw immediate results. I have oily, acne prone, sensitive skin and was skeptical to try it when the sales rep took me to it but Ulta has a great return policy so I said "Why not". So far no regrets. Leaves skin feeling amazing. I purchased the packaged product and the microdermabrasion (sp) exfoliator.

    This facewash is great

    By Erin

    from South Bend, IN

    Pros

    • Gets rid of acne
    • Leaves Clean Feel
    • Removes makeup

    Cons

    • Dries Out Skin

    Best Uses

    • Acne-Prone Skin

    • Daily Use

    Comments about Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser:

    My face started breaking out terribly and I realized I needed something a bit stronger than the face wash I was using (Mario Badescu's acne wash). This has done an amazing job of that. I use this at night and it typically gets 90% of my makeup off (mascara is still a pain) and my skin is left feeling super fresh and clean. The only issue I had is that when I would use this at night and in the mornings, my face got extremely dried out, moreso than usual because it was the middle of winter. I now only use this at night or when I need to remove my makeup and something a bit gentler for the mornings.

        Comments about Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser:

        After using this for two weeks I began to break out worse than I ever have all over my face and began to have major dry patches on my chin and nose which I have never had before. Not knowing what the problem was I researched the ingredients in this product and at least four that I looked up either caused skin irritation, was considered hazardous, or was know for skin allergies. I would not recommend this product at all, especially for sensitive skin.

        Comments about Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser:

        Evened out my skin, I was using the honest company before this but when they moved out of ulta an employee highly recommended this and I'm so glad I bought it! It's the same price but way more product in the bottle. My skin looks great, I won't be using anything else anytime soon.

        Great for troublesome skin!!

        By Errica

        from PCB, FL

        Comments about Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser:

        I LOVE this wash! I hit my 30s and my skin was worse than my teenage years. I was having crazy breakouts and just there texture of my skin was bad. This was recommended and I won't buy anything else. If I use this at least once a day my face stays clear of breakouts. I feel like it's a little pricey compared to similar products but it does the job.

          I suffer with cystic acne and this used with another product has cleared up me existing breakouts! Im not too thrilled about the price but I have wasted money on so many acne medications from Clinique to the lower brands and this has not irritated my skin and has given me results

                  I originally went to Ulta to repeat buy ProActiv and the ladies convinced me to buy this instead. I'm so glad I took the advice from them and got it because it is awesome! I will definitely buy this over and over again. It has calmed my acne and changed the texture of my skin. Love it!

                      A:

                      Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser contains 0.5% Salicylic Acid, along with Mandelic Acid to help clarify skin and control oiliness. There are no known safety concerns with using cosmetic products during pregnancy. However, we recommend that all pregnant and lactating women, or those currently planning to become pregnant, seek the advice of their physician if there are specific concerns regarding use of skin care products. In addition, we recommend discontinuing use of products containing OTC treatment drugs (e.g., acne, skin lightening, psoriasis treatments) during pregnancy and lactation, unless recommended by a physician.
