Good for acne but introduce carefully

In the FAQs and How to Use, Inkey say this is fine to use AM and PM every day - don't do this straight away (or at all)! This is a great product and really helps with blackheads and texture, but salicylic acid is a harsh exfoliating ingredient even in a cleanser, and my skin got super dehydrated when I used this every day. Introduce by using once every 3 days, then every other day, then if your skin can handle it every night - but stop for a few days if you get dry patches. AM and PM would be too much, find a gentle hydrating cleanser for the morning. This is a great salicylic acid cleanser though and really helped with my face and body acne!

Hey Heather!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review and educating our community🖤 you're entirely right! everyone will have a different experience to products so it would be best to patch test and work up to a frequency that your skin is comfortable with! we're happy to hear you're enjoying it now that you've found the best method for yourself :)

Sore spots

I was very excited to use this cleanser having heard good stuff. I have clear skin and it is not oily, neither dry - it looks plump usually but ever since I started using this I have had sore spots and irritation on my face, specially on my cheese and on the sides of my nose. I was only using it once a day.

It did do OK on a patch test on my arm so I am quite upset. Perhaps it is ok for people with extreme oiliness but it looks like quite a drying product.

Great at first but burnt my skin

Firstly it did feel great after use.

Nice, properly clean skin.

After 3 days of use it burnt my skin on neck, nose and under my eyes.

Won’t use it anymore as I can’t walk around with red patches on my face and neck especially while working within Wedding industry :/

Great

The most effective cleanser I've ever used. Even the texture of my skin feels softer and even cleaner. It's a great combo when double cleansing with the oat cleansing balm. Your skin does not feel tight nor dry after. Even the little bumps under the skin does not appear any more, just smooth surface.

Great face wash

This is a lovely face wash. Leaves skin feeling really clean but not tight or dry. Love it! Great price too.
