    This cleanser is so amazing!! I’ve been using it for about 3 months and I’ve seen such an improvement in my skin. Really love salicylic acid and these cleanser is such a good option if you love that ingredient🙌🏼!! It also doesn’t dry out the skin.

  2. Colleen Murray (verified owner)

    This cleanser is amazing! I have been using it for just over a week and it has cleared up all my hormonal closed comedones/bumps and acne. I have not had a breakout since using it – very impressed! Note: it can be drying, even for combo skin, so make sure you are getting moisture/hydration from other skincare products.

  3. jelena (verified owner)

    Love the texture of this product. My skin feels super clean but not dry at all. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and I’m looking forward to seeing how it work on my hormonal breakouts. Buying one for a friend.

    As someone who suffers with severe blackheads on my nose on a daily basis and have tried clay masking two to three times a week and niacinamide and while it helped a small amount, nothing compares to this face wash. You only need a pea size amount before lathering with water and when I am done all my blackheads are gone and my pores have become visibly smaller! Will not change over to any other face wash again.

  5. Zorka Van Der Merwe (verified owner)

    Excellent cleanser! Strong herbal/tea tree scent. Creates rich lather. After application the skin is soft and smooth. Love the exfoliating benefit without dryness and tightness of the skin. No allergic reactions.

  6. Zanele Dlamini (verified owner)

    Texture is amazing! Will last you long as a pea sized amount is enough for whole face.
    I wouldn’t recommend it for sensitive skin, this product is great but has caused me redness especially on the most sensitive areas. I had had to stop using it and go back to my Some by Mi 30days miracle cleanser.

  7. Kim (verified owner)

    At first my skin became so smooth and I thought great because I had a lot of white heads. After a while I started to break out. ALOT. I thought it was just purging and I would be fine after a few weeks. 6 weeks went by (don’t ask why I kept on using it) and my skin only got worse especially around the cheeks and temple. I never used to have temple acne but now it’s so bad. It was also drying for my skin. If you have sensitive highly reactive skin, I don’t recommend this product.

  8. leeannedeonarain (verified owner)

    I love this product. You just need a pea size which works into a good lather. My skin feels fresh without feeling tight. My pimples are gone so quickly.

  9. Avasti (verified owner)

    This cleanser is amazing! It leaves your skin feeling so clean yet moisturized and soft! My skin looks so much clearer and bright since introducing this cleanser into my routine 2 weeks ago. Highly recommend

    I was looking for something for my 25-year-old who still has the occasional breakout and even though he has only been using it a short while and his skin is already starting to look better.

  11. Inez Faul (verified owner)

    I bought this for my boyfriend as a gift. He was very stubborn at first, but now this cleanser is a staple in his “routine”. He has oily skin, especially around the nose, and I must say that I can definitely see an improvement since he has started using this!

  12. Sue (verified owner)

    A decent cleanser, you only have to use a small amount and my skin feels squeaky clean after.

  13. Vikki Bischoff (verified owner)

    Love this cleanser! Immediate results! Cleans skin without drying it out. Pores are minimised, and blemishes are improved. Highly recommend !!!

  14. Lindsay Rajah (verified owner)

    A good product for acne-prone skin. Stronger than the Cosrx Good morning low ph cleanser. Caused my combination skin to feel a bit dry and tight after use. Would recommend alternating the two products for dry skin.

  15. michielubbe (verified owner)

    This is the stuff!

    A little goes a looooong way (a small drop of this facewash is enough to make a nice fluffy lather and I’ve used less than half a tube in a month)

    I’m using this with the A’pieu madecassoside cream and the COSRX sleep in rice mask and it’s gotten rid of my large, painful cystic acne.

  16. Jeanine van Velden (verified owner)

    I love Cosrx products – but this cleanser did not agree with my skin at all. I do not have acne prone skin, but my skin is dry and sensitive. I bought this cleanser as I could not get a hold of the Cosrx ABC toner, so wanted another gentle way of including BHA in my routine. Within the first two weeks my skin had gone from smooth and radiant to textured and dull. It caused me to breakout. I started alternating it with my Banila Foam Cleanser and that seemed to help. I now only use the cleanser if I actually have a pimple, as it does help to calm the inflammation and dry it out.

  17. catilin.pan (verified owner)

    It really helped with getting rid of the texture on my skin and with reducing acne, I saw results within a week and a half. It’s really suitable for oily skin types and produces the best result when accompanied with a vitamin C facial scrub(once a week). The product is affordable with great results so I will continue to buy it.

  18. Rene (verified owner)

    Great facewash, it does not foam up but still gives a good clean and the salicylic acid is effective in preventing minor breakouts. It is not a one-solve product if you struggle with acne, I combine this step with oil cleansing before, and using an AHA toner that truly works magic on skin texture and acne scarring.

  19. Aaliyah (verified owner)

    Best salicylic acid cleanser I’ve used!

  20. azraasalie2010 (verified owner)

    Really good with my cystic acne! Takes off all the sunscreen and makeup at night.

  21. tpmakhubele (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this cleanser, the texture is great and it is very gentle to the skin. I’ve been using it for over 6 months and I’m obsessed! A little does go a long way with this cleanser

    Gentle exfoliator indeed… love how it effectively exfoliate the skin yet does not strip away its moisture.
