FAQ's Salicylic Acid Cleanser

CAN I USE SALICYLIC ACID CLEANSER ON MY BODY? 

You can absolutely use this cleanser on parts of your body with breakouts, such as arms, chest, back. 


CAN I USE THIS CLEANSER IN MY DOUBLE CLEANSE ROUTINE? 

We recommend using our Oat Cleansing Balm as a first step in double cleansing and Salicylic Acid after. 


CAN I USE EXFOLIATING ACIDS / RETINOLS / VITAMIN C AFTER USING SALICYLIC ACID CLEANSER? 

You can layer your usual skincare routine after washing your face with Salicylic Acid Cleanser. It is a very gentle, yet effective cleanser that stays on your skin for a short amount of time and then gets completely washed off with water. Thanks to this you can safely layer other active ingredients. 


CAN I USE SALICYLIC ACID CLEANSER IF MY SKIN IS NOT OILY BUT IS STILL BLEMISH PRONE? 

You can use this cleanser if your skin is not oily but you're experiencing breakouts or your skin is blemish prone. We would recommend to use Salicylic Acid Cleanser 2-3 times per week to gently exfoliate and declog your pores and alternate it with our other cleansers.


IS THIS CLEANSER ENOUGH OR DO I NEED TO FOLLOW UP WITH A SEPARATE CLEANSER?

The cleanser is perfectly fine on its own so it does not need a follow up however you can also pair this with another cleanser for a double cleanse. 


IS IT OKAY TO BE USED DAILY AM ad PM?

Yes! it is perfectly fine for daily use AM and PM or at a frequency you prefer 


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Products using retinol can take up to six weeks to show results. This is how long it takes for your skin cells to turnover. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don\'t overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.


IS THIS PRODUCT PREGNANCY SAFE?

We do not recommend this product if pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor before use. 


IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?

Yes! This product contains no animal derivatives and is now certified by The Vegan Society.

yes

favourite cleanser so far. great consistency, I would get aggressive pimples around the nose and forehead but after using this cleanser my skin has been calm. I also use hyaluronic acid and niacinamide (from the ordinary lol) and it has minimized pores and acne scars from before. it does the job very cool very chill

Great exfoliator

I love this product, it is an amazing exfoliator to help with my oiliness and acne. It has a really nice light gel consistency. However, when I first started using it, I followed the recommended usage and used it everyday. I ended up breaking out A LOT, but changed to using it twice a week and my acne improved afterwards. Fully recommend this product, but I don't think The Inkey List should be recommending daily use as exfoliators are only meant to be used 2-3 times a week. However if daily use works for you then great!

Works well!

My skin has been calm since using this. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily or stripped.

Works amazing

I started noticing results right away. It mainly helped with getting rid of dead skin cells and I noticed that my skin started feeling smoother. I am using the cleanser with the BHA serum and niacinamide and also The Ordinary's 0.5 retinol. Just an FYI I have a combination sensitive skin with a lot of blackheads and large pores. I still haven't seen results for them but I hope with time my skin will change for the better :)
