            I used this product until it was almost out and I've got to say, for the price margin, I was not impressed. My skin stayed relatively the same (acne prone, hyperpigmentation) and I found it a bit drying. It is supposed to be natural but I didnt like the smell. I found the gel texture to be some what ineffective. I just went and got Soap & Glory's Vitamin C face wash (half the price) and my acne is gone. I wouldn't recommend tgis to a friend just because it is lackluster.

                    I'm so glad that I found this cleanser! I was having a lot of trouble with breakouts, and it seemed as if nothing would clear them up. However, within a week this cleanser significantly improved my skin! My breakouts diminished and now my skin is looking much better. I will definitely continue using this cleanser!

                      I got the Exuviance trial and loved how the face wash worked so well with or without makeup. I still wipe off makeup before using this product at night. This product leaves my face clean and not irritated.

                          A:

                          For your skin concerns, we'd recommend Exuviance Clarifying Facial Cleanser. It's a soap-free cleanser, specifically created for problematic skin. This foaming formula dissolves impurities such as makeup, dirt and excess oil and reduces bacteria that can trigger a breakout. A blend of Salicylic and Mandelic Acids exfoliates pores to clarify and help control oiliness, while the antiaging Polyhydroxy Acid formulation helps maintain skin's natural pH balance.

                      • Q:

                        I recently bought this product and I'm wondering if I should switch to the gentle cleansing cream.

                        For about two weeks , twice a day morning and night I've washed my face with the purifying gel then use the soothing toner followed by the protective day cream during the day and hydrogel night cream at night. At first my face broke out which I think was the purging because it seems to clear day by day and my skin has a glow to it but my skin is peeling horrible it's like a desert . Not sure which product is causing the dryness . Should I switch to the gentle cleansing cream? Will switching just that product in my regimine aid with the dry flakey skin I'm having ? Please help . My skin seems to be improving but the dryness is terrible

                          To address the dryness you're experiencing, we recommend reducing the frequency of use. Try using Exuviance Soothing Toning Lotion once per day, or every other day.
                          If your dryness persists, try reducing usage of Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel to once a day or incorporating Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Cream.

                          A:

                          Exuviance does not use raw materials derived from "specified risk materials" of animals, including cows (bovine) or other ruminants and, therefore, there is no Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) risk. In addition, Exuviance does not use any ingredients derived from sheep (ovine), pigs (porcine), or goats (caprine).

                          Exuviance may use certain ingredients that are produced by animals, for example, beeswax (produced by bees), lanolin (found in the wool of sheep), lactobionic acid (oxidized form of cow's milk sugar/lactose), silk (from the cocoon of the silkworm) and N-acetyl glucosamine, (an ingredient derived from the shells of marine animals) which are a bi-product of the food industry. There is no risk of BSE transmission from these materials as well.

                          Exuviance does not conduct animal testing or solicit animal testing on our behalf, except where required by law, for its marketed skin care products including the Exuviance and CoverBlend brands. All routine product safety and claim support testing is carried out on human volunteers or using in vitro models.

                          Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel does offer a deep clean to remove impurities but we would recommend Exuviance Moisturizing Antibacterial Facial Cleanser for help with more oily/acne-prone skin. Our Antiabacterial Cleanser reaches deep into pores to dissolve impurities and help reduce problematic bacteria.

                          A:

                          The two cleansers are similar. Both feature a foaming gel formula that is suitable for all skin types and are formulated with AHAs to brighten skin, improve skin texture, and combat the signs of aging. Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel is formulated with Glycolic Acid (AHA) and Gluconolactone (PHA), while Moisturizing Antibacterial Wash is formulated with Gluconolactone (PHA) alone. Moisturizing Antibacterial Wash is especially ideal for acne-prone skin, as it helps reduce problematic bacteria.
