I'm shook.

By beautybuty25

Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

Unfortunately the lord blessed me super oily skin with the occasional break outs here and there so you can imagine all of the skin care regimes I've tried. With the combination of this face wash and the antidote moisturizer(never could use moisturizer before) my face is darn near flawless. I wear a full face of makeup every day and usually by noon it looks oily and I no longer have that problem. it smells amazing, it gives you a cooling sensation and your skin just feels fresh. I highly recommend this!

Best Face Wash for Combo/Oily skin

By Kalina

from San Diego

Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

I'm not usually someone who spends more then $10 on face wash, but I tried a sample of this and HAD to buy it. It removes all of the oil from my face without drying it out and it lathers up a ton which I love! My skin always feel super soft and clean after using this. I also noticed that since I started using this I haven't had any breakouts, but I don't break out often to begin with so I'm not sure if that's due to the product.

    Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

    I first tried this face wash when I received it in my Ipsy box, and I've been buying it ever since. This is the best facial cleanser I have ever used. I have very oily skin, and this makes my face feel so clean/fresh after I use it. I also love that I can use as small as a pea-sized amount and it still lathers up. I recommend this product to everyone!

              I was using a different face wash that was breaking my skin out and when I switched to this face wash my skin cleared up in about 3-4 days. You also don't need to use much product because it foams when you add water.

                    Hello Irene,
                    Glacial Face Wash is a great start for keeping your skin clean and helping to reduce blackheads and large pore size. May I also recommend that you use the Nordic Skin Peel. These are pads that work to also reduce large pores, remove surface dead skin and keep your skin clean. Be sure to protect your skin with a moisturizer that will help to do the same. The Antidote Cooling Daily Lotion would be ideal. The combination of using all three products will keep your skin looking smooth and free from breakouts. Hope this helps.

                    Hello Chris,
                    Thanks so much for your question. Glacial Face Wash is ideal for anyone with redness or irritation. Its cushiony soft and has a calming effect that works immediately and over time to help soothe irritated skin. It is safe to use, and long term will help protect your skin.
                    Hope this answer helps.

                • Q:

                  Can you use this product to take off your makeup? I currently have one from Glam Glow, and I wet my face at night when I'm taking off my makeup, and then apply it. Takes all my makeup right off and cleans my skin. Looking for something similar that I can use in mornings when I wake up and evenings (to also take off all my makeup).

                    Hi Sasha,
                    Thanks so much for your question. Although this is not a full face of makeup cleanser, it does break down dirt, makeup and impurities. If you wear heavier makeup a better option would be our Glacial Cleansing Cloths for Eyes that removes all makeup, even waterproof.
                    Hope this answer helps.
