Overview

  • If you prefer a more concentrated cleanser with an added boost of AHAs and BHAs, that's still gentle enough for sensitive skin, you may wish to consider Clarifying Cleanser C2 Pro with AHAs and BHAs suitable for oily, congested or blemish-prone skin.
  • Our bestselling clarifying cream cleanser contains a powerful trifecta of acids at a low pH to benefit oily, congested, and blemish-prone skin.
  • Contains 2% salicylic acid, to penetrate deeply into the pores to remove trapped dirt and reduce the appearance of blackheads.
  • Formulated with glycolic acid (4%) and lactic acid (1%) to exfoliate skin, removing dead skin cells and improving the overall texture and appearance.
  • Salicylic acid (2%) penetrates deep into the pores.
  • Free of parabens, silicones, PEGs, SLS, SLES, and mineral oils. Vegan and cruelty-free. Made in the UK.
  • Facetheory products contain a high concentration of actives, so only a small amount is required per use. 180ml usually lasts our customers around two months.
  • Do not use if under the age of 18 or if pregnant. Seek advice from your doctor.

After your first full application, wait a day or two before starting regular use. Discontinue if irritation occurs.
