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.


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?

PH LEVEL: 4.5-5.0


LOOKING FOR A BOOST OF HYDRATION?

Salicylic Acid Cleanser + Hyalyronic Acid


LOOKING TO IMPROVE SKIN TEXTURE?

Caused Deep Cystic Acne

I really wanted to enjoy this product but my skin reacted severely bad. I've always had acne prone skin but I've been able to keep my breakouts to a minimum using another brand of skincare. Almost immediately after I started using this cleanser I began developing deep painful cysts on my jaw and acne on my face in areas I normally never have acne! I understand not all products work for everyone but it's extremely disappointing.

Very good cleanser but when is the restock?

I've had positive experiences with this cleanser and I was looking to buy more but this product has been unavailable for quite a while now. When is the restock, my skin has been waiting?

Nice cleanser

I use it as my second cleanser and it cleans everything from my face. It is gentle. I leave it a minute on to do its job.

Seriously, is this a JOKE. It's been 3 months and it's no where to be found in Canada. I have been writing on every social media but inkey list doesn't seem to bother. You guys deserve 1 star now. i ordered 1 from cult beauty last month and had to pay double to get it shipped from Spain and after 1 month it still isn't available.
