Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser 12% by Skinstitut


Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser 12% is a powerful dual cleanser and exfoliant formulated for deep cleansing action and skin renewal to reveal a healthy and radiant complexion.


Key benefits of Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser 12%

  • unclogs pores and removes dead skin
  • brightens skin and refines texture
  • prevents blemishes, acne and blackheads
  • promotes healthy cell renewal for plumper skin

This winning cleanser is formulated with Glycolic Acid, an effective alpha-hydroxy acid that promotes both removal of dead skin cells and turnover of new skin cells. Glycolic Cleanser 12% is perfect for transforming dull, pigmented, or uneven skin tones into a luminous, even complexion. Glycolic Acid works to bring plump, hydrated cells from the lower layers of the epidermis to the surface, revealing a brighter and more even complexion.


Acne-prone skin types benefit from the decongestant properties of this cleanser, which keep pores clear and blemishes and blackheads at bay. The addition of Tea Tree Oil, a potent anti-inflammatory ingredient, soothes breakouts. Lightly foaming and granule-free, this exfoliating cleanser will not strip skin of moisture or leave it feeling tight as it deep cleanses the pores of impurities, makeup, and sebum.
The exfoliant formula refines, smooths, and brightens skin texture, making it an excellent treatment cleanser for ageing complexions suffering from dark spots, fine lines, or overall dullness.


Glycolic Cleanser 12% is a valuable addition to your anti-ageing regime as well as for any pigmentation concerns. The resurfacing power of Glycolic Acid evens skin tone and can treat sun damage.

Oiler skin types, as well as acne-prone and ageing skin, can benefit from daily use of this treatment cleanser.

Sensitive or irritation-prone skin is advised to use Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser, which is especially formulated to renew and exfoliate these more delicate skin types.


How to use Skinstitut Glycolic Cleanser 12%:

  • Dampen face or hands with warm water.
  • Apply a pea-sized amount of product to face and massage over face and closed eyelids in circular motions.
  • Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
  • Follow with your favourite serum or moisturiser.

Best face wash I've used - 13-08-2018 by

I've used many different faces washes over the yes and this by far is my favorite! A little goes a long way and leaves my skin feeling smooth, I use this along with the scrub.

Great for acne - 13-08-2018 by

Smells great, I don’t use it everyday as I find it can be quite harsh. Otherwise, it has helped my skin a lot and I think it’s a great skinstitut product!

Amazing Product! - 13-08-2018 by

This cleanser has been my life line! For about 3 years now I’ve been struggling with big, hormonal cycstic acne and this completely calmed it down. It’s not too harsh at all and it doesn’t sting or anything. It’s hinestly amazing!

Gentle and effective cleanser - 13-08-2018 by

This product is worth the price tag and will last you forever. You only need to use a pea size amount and on the first application I noticed my skin was visibly brighter. I dont normally use creamy cleansers as I feel like they dont clean my skin very well but this cleanser leaves my skin feeling squeeky clean without making my skin dry. This product has also helped with my blackheads especially. Would definitely purchase again

Skin saver! - 13-08-2018 by

This product has made the biggest difference to my skin I’ve seen in years! Combined with the scrub they are an unstoppable duo that have given my skin the almost perfect complexion with also helping control the oiliness in my skin. Wouldn’t bother trying anything different I have found the answer to beautiful clear skin!

Fantastic - 12-08-2018 by

I love this product can't do without it.

Stings my eyes - 08-08-2018 by

Being an lover of Skinstitut brand, I have to say I’m disappointed with this Cleanser. The tea tree smells great and I was excited that this product would make my skin feel beautifully clean. Unfortunately the Cleanser really stung my eyes to the point I couldn’t open them for a while after I washed my face. Sorry to say I wouldn’t recommend it.

Definitely see the results! - 02-08-2018 by

I used to have large visible pores until I started using Skinstitut products, in particular this glycolic cleanser which has minimised the appearance of my pores dramatically! Using only a small amount, I massage it onto my wet face in a circular motion and literally count to 30 seconds as per the instructions although I must admit I focus more on my problem areas i.e. cheeks, nose and forehead. I use this product 3-4 times a week although I could probably start using it less but I am too in love with it! I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!

Great product - 01-08-2018 by

I love the way this makes my skin feel soft, once I use I feel like the dirt is completely off of my face.... works brilliant when also used with the glycolic scrub

The best cleanser ever! - 31-07-2018 by

I have combo skin with hormonal acne, acne scarring from when I was younger and this cleanser has by far been the best I have ever used! I have spend a lot of money on skincare and trying different products and I find this cleanser is the only one that controls my breakouts and cleans my makeup off best at the end of the day. I have bought about 3 the stock up on so I don’t run out for a while! Best of all is they seem to always have 33% off sale hahaha

Good cleanser - 31-07-2018 by

I bought this cleanser to help with my congested skin and it has really helped to refine my pores and leave my face feeling clean. Just be sure to do a pre-cleanse first if you are wearing makeup, as it does not get it all off on its own. I love how you don't need much of this product either, so the product lasts a long time.

best cleanser ever! - 30-07-2018 by

this has to be the best cleanser ive ever tried! it helped get rid of post on my acne within a week.

Great product that works - 30-07-2018 by

This product made a clear difference to my skin over the course of three months. It is gentle but strong enough to take effect. People have consistently been telling me how much clearer my skin looks and my acne has fully settles. Have had the product for three months and have not even used half the bottle. Great value and great price. Could smell nicer but that is the only fault.

A great de- congestor - 30-07-2018 by

I have ageing skin and despite having a regular skin care regime have always had a congested chin and nose. I have used nearly every product available, clarisonic brush, regular facials. Nothing has worked as well as this product. My chin is almost completely clear of small blemishes, and the rest of my face is much clearer. Only down point is that it is a tad drying on the face. If you weren't in your 50's like me, it may not bother you. I still use it every day, along with the 14% glycolic exfoliator (which I also love) I have been using this product for over 6 months now and have plenty left- great value!

best cleanser ever! - 30-07-2018 by

best cleanser i have ever tried, helped clear my skin i havent had a bad breakout since using it. .

Love this product - 30-07-2018 by

I use this cleanser every day and absolutely love it. A little goes a long way and it's reasonably priced too.

Best cleanser ever - 26-07-2018 by

Absolutely love this! I suffered from bad hormonal acne all over my cheeks and this saved me! I swear by this brand their stuff is amazing! Makes my skin smooth and flattens the pimples and clears it right up! Seriously works wonders highly recommend for problematic skin

Good cleanser, not too irritating - 26-07-2018 by

I accidentally ordered this thinking it was the glycolic exfoliator by Skinstitut which I have been using for a few years. However I decided to try it and have really been liking it. I really think it does help with my breakouts and keeping my skin smooth and I feel like I can use it daily whereas the exfoliator is rougher and better for once a week.

I use the exfoliator on my arms and legs as well but I don't think this works very well for the body - just the face.

LOVE this Cleanser - 17-07-2018 by

I LOVE this cleanser. I have been using the Philosophy Purity wash for years (maybe 6 or 7) and anytime I stray away from that I regret it within about a week. Naturally when I received a gift with purchase of the Glycolic 12% wash from Skinstitut I was like ‘pfft no way’ but I started using it every other night after removing my make up with Purity and wow did I notice the difference. My skin is not dried out or sore, it just leaves the texture super smooth and lovely.
I am a super fan of this product. I use it nightly with my Foreo after removing any makeup/day grime and it has been a god send for the dry, flakey skin that I had previously which was the cause of all those little congested bumps on my cheeks and forehead.

Amazing for congested skin - 10-07-2018 by

After trying many acne specific cleansers for my 17yr old boy this is the one that helped clear his congested skin. Would highly recommend if you suffer from breakouts or congested skin. its effective yet gentle enough to do its job.Price is also a plus!!

Amazing Cleanser - 02-07-2018 by

I've been using this cleanser for over a year, and honestly haven't found anything else that compares.
It leaves my skin feeling super soft and clear, and can use it every day.
Highly recommend!

Be careful if you have sensitive skin - 02-07-2018 by

I have used this cleanser for a few months and felt it was doing a good job at removing my makeup and keeping breakouts at bay, despite feeling slightly irritated after using it. However, after going to a skin specialist after having a persistent rash on my face, she examined my skin and told me that it was likely that my cleanser was to blame as glycolic acid can be too harsh on sensitive skin, especially using it twice a day as this product recommends. This is important to note if you also have sensitive skin like me.

Breakouts - 02-07-2018 by

I trialed this after running out of a more expensive cleanser. 3 weeks of this stuff (no other changes) and my usual oily skin remained but clear pores... my usual 2-3 pimples turned into 20. I have never gotten a pimple reaction to a new product so I was surprised. Might work for some but not for myself.

Amazing cleanser for oily skin - 30-06-2018 by

I have large pores and a very oily t-zone which is a winning combo for rough skin, clogged pores, and breakouts. I use this in conjunction with the Skinstitut Glycolic scrub and it's perfect for the days that I don't exfoliate. Not too harsh but still keeps my pores clear. It also breaks down makeup really well and cleanses my face without leaving my face feeling overly dry or tight. I'm normally a fan of all-natural products, but recently felt I needed something a little heavier-duty than my Sukin cleanser. This bad boy is now a standard part of my routine. Pretty good value for $30 too.

Good does what it says - 29-06-2018 by

I have combination skin and bought this to help with any congestion and breakouts (basically to keep my skin in check).
This product does what it says whilst being gentle. I used it daily until empty and it did not dry my skin out, it did not cause any new breakouts and I think it also helped prevent breakouts.
You get a lot of product and it is really good value if purchased online, I've seen it sold for more at Laser Clinics.

GREAT affordable product - 27-06-2018 by

I recently bought this to include in my exfoliation routine, and am really impressed with how well it works. I use it 2-3 times a week of an evening before bed and wake up with visibly cleaner and clearer skin. Its also not too harsh as i do have sensitive skin! Give it a go!

Not so good - 27-06-2018 by

Well priced, I was excited for this product. Unfortunately despite the fact that my skin feels clean and looks smoother it is not clearing the filaments from my nose. I used to use MD Formulations and all you would see after I cleansed was empty pores. I am so disappointed.

Too drying - 27-06-2018 by

I really wanted to love this cleanser and I absolutely do, but it is just too drying for my skin. I have dry combination skin prone to sensitivity and probably should have chosen something a bit more gentle.

However, having said that it DOES clear breakouts (but can bring everything to the surface) and has faded my acne scarring DRAMATICALLY. I will continue to use at most twice a week as the results are worth a bit of dryness.

Gentle for repeated use - 25-06-2018 by

This is a wonderful cleanser. As it isn't as strong as its sibling (14% scrub), I like to use this every second day and find it keeps my skin uncontested and smooth. Highly recommend this and all of skinstitut products!

I USE THIS EVERYDAY! - 21-06-2018 by

I have been using this for well over 6 months now (religiously) so I know it works. it’s both gentle on my skin and yet strong enough to really clean my face and leave my skin feeling light and fresh and not super tight like others can, which is a miracle considering the high Glycolic content. Super thrilled I found the right cleanser for me and great price when you buy on this site vs in salons.

Great but also - 21-06-2018 by

I like to use products with glycolic acid to exfoliate my skin and refine my skin texture. This cleanser effectively removed excess oil as well as my makeup. My skin did feel a bit tight after using it so I would always follow up with a hydrating moisturiser afterwards.

Okay Cleanser - 20-06-2018 by

It hasn't really changed my skin, I have dehydrated combo skin that has a lot of clogged pores (mostly whiteheads) I was hoping that this would really help with that problem but it hasn't and I've been using it everyday since march.

Skinstitut - 20-06-2018 by

I love this product it helps keep my breakouts undercontrol and helping my teen son also

Solid cleanser - 19-06-2018 by

I have been using this cleanser for over two years now - first started using it when my acne was at it's worst. My skin is much clearer now and the texture has improved - however, it can be quite drying to use especially with other treatments for acne. I would use this cleanser at night and follow up with a gentle moisturiser.

not sure - 19-06-2018 by

I have really oily skin and since using this I feel my skins oiliness has been under control. It says to only use this every 2-3 nights but if I don't use this every second day my skin becomes really dry. I've had some breakouts on my chin lately and this has really irritated those pimples so definitely avoid if you have active acne.

Love it! - 18-06-2018 by

I'm 27 and have had hormonal acne as long as I can remember. This is my second bottle and it is helping so much with all of my acne scarring. My skin is also a lot smoother since using this.

Worth It ! - 18-06-2018 by

I recently purchased this product for my teenage son who was suffering from blackheads.I decided I would also try the product on myself at first I broke out which was very worrying and I kept using the product and after 2 weeks my face looked so good . Highly recommend you continue to use the product even if you do have a breakout on your face as this is the product working bringing all the oil to the surface of your pores.

Actually Works - 13-06-2018 by

Honestly a go to product for us, works a treat. We use it after gentle cleanser everyday. Doesn't dry skin out whilst making it feel fresh and clean. Would recommend

Great clearing cleanser - 09-06-2018 by

After moving to Sydney from a cooler climate, my skin had a minor freak out. I'm in my 30's and after a bout of acne in my mid 20s, I've pretty much had my combination skin under control. But seemingly overnight the congestion arrived - blackheads, spots and rough patches (eugh). This cleanser provided the reset my skin needed, I felt a difference after just a couple of uses and much clearer after a week. Amazing price too! My husband has also started using it and he's noticed a difference as well.

Only draw back is that after a couple of weeks, it is getting a bit over-active for my skin - so I am using it a little less frequently to avoid irritation. So definitely, 100% give this product a go, but have another, less active cleanser on standby just in case your skin needs a rest.

If you are looking for a chemical exfoliant - give this a try! - 07-06-2018 by

This is such a good product, particularly at such a low price.

When I first became interested in skincare, I wanted to get a cleanser with AHAs to provide chemical exfoliation because I have an oily t-zone and wanted to prevent acne, minimise pores and also repair skin damage/pigmentation.

This product was perfect for doing that, and the generous tube has lasted me much longer (approximately double the amount of time) than any of my other skincare products. So it is fantastic value!

I have also found some other more unusual uses for this magical chemical exfoliant:
- Use on other oily or acne-prone areas (e.g. back)
- To exfoliate very dry skin areas (e.g. elbows) to prep skin prior to spray tanning
- To exfoliate stubborn areas when removing spray tans
- Finally, I have keratosis pilaris (redness/small spots) on my upper arms and sometimes use this cleanser to help treat it

I have recommended this product to friends, who have since purchased it and are also enjoying seeing results.

Not too sure on this one - 01-06-2018 by

Had this one given by a friend to try and made me break out a little. I didn't use it for a full month though so id be keen to try again.

Amazing Product - 31-05-2018 by

I have combination skin with the occasional breakout and blackheads. I have tried so many cleansers and without a doubt this cleanser is the best. I was worried that it might be too drying for my skin, especially in winter, but it was far less drying than the organic cleanser I was using previously. My skin cleared up so quickly and I have not had a single breakout since I started using it. My skin feels soft and smooth. The bottle is huge and you only need a tiny amount. Will definitely purchase again.

Only product to ever work for me - 31-05-2018 by

I have very oily, acne prone skin and I have spent more money than I care to think on products that didn't work or would work at first and then stop after a couple of weeks. I now purchase this product on repeat as it does not dry me out but it keeps my excess oil at bay. Also a bottle lasts for ever!

Amazing product - Will never look back! - 28-05-2018 by

I have rather sensitive skin and am prone to whiteheads/blackheads and painful pimples. I've tried an array skin care products but found that my skin gets worse. I heard about Skintitute through watching beauty gurus on YouTube and they had given great reviews on this product. I had to get my hands on this cleanser asap! I must admit, my skin felt so gentle and smooth after the first wash. The smallest amount goes a long way and the scent is amazing! The 200ml will last a very long time which is a plus. I have been using this cleanser for a few days now and have noticed the bumps on my skin are slowly diminishing. I've never seen results develop this fast and safe to say I've finally found something that works.!

Favourite Scrub - 24-05-2018 by

This scrub has worked wonders for my combination skin. It’s helped immensely with my breakouts and I love the fresh feeling on my skin after using. Would definitely recommend.

Great Gel Non Foaming Cleanser - 23-05-2018 by

I really enjoyed using this cleanser. The added Glycolic makes such a difference to my Late 30's Combination acne prone skin. The only thing I could fault with it was the non foaming, I like bubbles!! Just always feel like I'm getting a better clean with a foaming cleanser.
Although with the Glycolic it definitely makes your skin feel clean afterwards.
Have bought several times and would buy again.

Broke me out - 23-05-2018 by

Although this felt nice and cleansed my skin well, it broke me out so bad! I had to give it away. I was surprised as although my skin can be sensitive at times I don't get a lot of breakouts and I can also tolerate salicylic acid well. The glycolic acid must just be too strong for my type of sensitive skin with occasional rosacea flares. So I would recommend staying away from this if you have not tried glycolic acids before.

Break out blitzer - 20-05-2018 by

Great on acne prone skin if used consistently absolutely majacial change of skin appearance! Love this product!

Excellent! - 15-05-2018 by

I love this cleanser. Highly effective, gentle and with no side effects at all. Luckily, tea tree is the one essential oil I don't hate with a passion! It smells the same as Skinstitut's Glycolic Scrub, which isn't overwhelming at all. Love, love this stuff.

Very effective - 14-05-2018 by

A very effective cleanser gets rid of all the nasty buildup i have on my face and when used consistently does help reduce my breakouts

Miracle - 12-05-2018 by

Bought this for my son who has acne problem. He has tried everything to control it so I decided he should try this newly-discovered brand of mine. Goodness! I have never seen his skin look so clear since puberty hit! Not to mention how much it has given him more confidence and made a young lad so happy. Now, he raids my bathroom for the Glycolic Scrub.

Love skinstitute products - 07-05-2018 by

I am in love with this cleanser. You really don't need much for it to cover the face and it doesn't irritate my skin. Will definitely purchase again!

Amazing!! - 30-04-2018 by

This is the best cleanser, I use it once a day of a night to take my makeup off. It has has changed my life! I used to get pimples on my chin and tiny ones on my forehead, now my skin is so smooth and texture free.

Amazing!! - 30-04-2018 by

Amazing - 30-04-2018 by

I have been using this product for
Many years I stop using for a bit to change it up but I always come back to it. The best product

Favourite Cleanser! - 19-04-2018 by

This is my all time favourite cleanser! It really helps to brighten my face and also treats my acne. I use this product every morning and night and my skin has never looked better! Excellent product which I would reccommend to others!

Best Cleanser I've ever used! - 18-04-2018 by

Okay this is a real game changer!
I'm 24, with oily skin, blackheads and hormonal acne.
I use this every night on my face and neck using the Loreal cleansing brush and the Glycolic Scrub 14% 1 - 2 times a week.

The wash is so silky and smells like tea tree oil!
A little goes a long way, so I will have this for a really long time, well worth the money!

Using these products have seriously cleared my skin, my face is so clean and smooth and my blackheads are disappearing and hormonal acne is gone!

Skinstitut has changed my life and the way I view chemical products - I used to only use natural skin care like Sukin (which is an awesome brand) but my skin just needed a little extra help, I will honestly never go back!

Best cleanser I've found to date! - 16-04-2018 by

Absolutely love this cleanser ! Discovered this brand once I started laser hair removal. I use it up to 3 times a week or whenever my skin is feeling oily and dirty. It's the second step to my facial routine after using the Skintitute glycolic scrub 14%. I've found it to be really beneficial and soothing for my skin which is combination !

Great for congestion - 12-04-2018 by

I have actually been using this as a kind of spot cream on congested areas (as recommended by the ladies at LCA). I use the gentle cleanser, mist and moisturise and then apply a little as a spot cream as the final step before bed. Has definitely helped the congestion and reduced breakouts.

Great value for money and an effective glycolic scrub - 11-04-2018 by

I got this as a sample more like a deluxe size and was very impressed with it. I only use it one a week because I am using other actives. If you want clear even toned skin give this ago. Test first if you are new to AHAs as they can be aggressive and irritating for some people.

Amazing Product! - 11-04-2018 by

I absolutely adore this product! I use it every morning and night. It thoroughly removes any traces of makeup and is very gentle. Since using it my acne & scarring has cleared dramatically. I highly recommend this cleanser!

Great - 03-04-2018 by

I love this product - I use the scrub every morning and night along with the gentle cleanser. Its very gentle on the skin.

Great product - used for years now - 03-04-2018 by

Great cleanser. Cleans deep and helps get rid of dead skin from surface. I use this cleanser before I use my derma roller. Love skinstitut products.

Happy customer - 02-04-2018 by

I've been using this cleanser for the past year and am really happy with it. I've got combination skin and am prone to get mild acne from time to time. I've noticed with regular use of this cleanser, my acne has reduced and the face generally feels smoother!

would recommend - 27-03-2018 by

I have been using this for about a week now and really enjoying it. This product is not a product which lathers, which I normally prefer, however I use a pre cleanse product (dermalogica) before this that removes all my makeup so I don't mind that it doesn't lather. It makes my skin feel super clean but not in the tight drying way. For the price, benefits that this product offers it is a very good investment and a little goes a long way so I'm expecting it to last a very long time.

Wouldn't use anything else! - 22-03-2018 by

I've been using this product for at least 5 years now and have never looked back! I am 38 and have oily skin. I use this every morning and night as part of my regime and it's stopped all my old breakouts! YAS!! I love how big the tube is too!

Great cleanser for my combination skin - 06-03-2018 by

I have tried so many cleansers and always struggled to find one that cleanned my pores without drying my skin out. Having combination oily skin that was my biggest concern. I find this cleanser fantastic, it really cleans my skin and pores but doesnt cause dryness. My tips would be to always remove make up before using and be carefull using in the morning as i find it great at night but sometimes a little harsh in the morning.

Powerful cleanser - 25-02-2018 by

I really like this glycolic cleanser. I have combination skin and it really helps to clear away dirt, oil and all traces of makeup and my skin feels a lot smoother without feeling tight or dry. I'd recommend starting with use every few days and slowly working up to daily use if your skin can handle it.

Great gentle cleanser - 21-02-2018 by

Removes make up so easily and nice and gentle to use morning and night without drying out skin . Is working well with my other skinstitut products for clearing up my skin and tone .

Really good product - 21-02-2018 by

This product helps keep congestion away but if you've never used a chemical exfoliant before, be sure to work your way up to daily use! You only need a little bit so the bottle lasts ages!

Effective cleanser - A small amount goes a long way! - 19-02-2018 by

I have really oily sensitive skin, I wear medium coverage make up and therefore need a good cleanser. I can definitely say this cleanser is a winner and value for money. Not only does it not irritate or burn my skin, it remove all make up (I do use a synthetic brush too) and leave my face fresh and clean without being red and irritated. This product is also super cheap and a small amount goes a long way! Although it doesn't lather, it spreads well and I only need a pea sized amount to do my face and neck and remove all make up. I have sensitive skin and feel quite comfortable using this once, if not twice a day.

A little goes a long way - 19-02-2018 by

This is a great, affordable cleanser, I loved the glycolic scrub 14% however the physical exfoliation made me break out so this was like the next best thing.

It helps maintain oils and cleans out your pores really well.

Also, the generous size of the product lasts such a long time and you only need the smallest amount when cleansing, well worth the purchase.

Excellent! Definitely try. Such good value - 23-01-2018 by

So happy with this product. I had been using another product for years and was generally happy - but it cost double and was half the size. I was reluctant to change but am so happy I did! I have suffered with hormonal acne since 17 and since using this product (it has been just over a month) I have noticed the difference. None of my usual breakouts since and if I do get a pimple it clears up fast. I have combination skin and was worried the tea tree oil may irritate it but it has not done anything except keep my skin clear and calm. I will continue to buy this product and can’t wait to try other products from Skinstitut

Go to for pimples - 28-12-2017 by

This is an amazing cleanser, if you suffer from break outs then this is amazing. I use it once a week as I don’t have to many breakouts. So when I do get the odd pimple I wash my face with this morning and night and by the next day the pimple has almost vanished it’s anazing. Skinstitut is one of the best skincare ranges out there for all skin types

Very slight tingle. Use sparingly - 27-12-2017 by

With a slight tingle and used sparingly 3 x per week, the Glycolic Cleanser feels like my skin is being thoroughly exfoliated. The results speak for themselves as my skin is lovely and smooth afterwards.

Nice cleanser - 19-12-2017 by

This is a nice every day cleanser, it left my skin feeling smoother and not dried out and tight. It won't get off all your makeup so you need to take makeup off before cleansing. You do need to do some facial massage with it while it's on your face before removing with a flannel, if I didn't use a flannel my skin felt much less clean. It's not amazing but I had no problems with it.

The Perfect Cleanser - 27-11-2017 by

I am 42, with light skin prone to dryness.

This cleanser is perfect in the evening after I have taken my make up off with micellar water.

I use this in the shower and let it sit for 30 seconds after a massage. Then rinse it off. Your face is clear and clean and there is no after dryness or irritation to the skin or eyes. I am on my second tube and will continue to repurchase. It is worth the price as you only need a pea size amount.

I don't use this in the morning, as I don't think cleansers are necessary in the morning.

Affordable, quality cleanser. - 14-11-2017 by

This cleanser helps keep my skin clear, isn't too drying or harsh, and its incredibly affordable! I've used glycolic cleansers for years and this is by far one of my favourites. i've already recommended it to many friends and family.

Excellent Glycolic Cleanser - 13-11-2017 by

I love everything Skinstitut! This cleanser is amazing, I use it alternating with the L-Lactic Cleanser. I leave it on my face for a minute in the shower and then rinse it off!

Best cleanser on the market - 31-10-2017 by

I have tried so many cleansers that I've now lost count. Skinstitut is my go-to brand and after trying all of their cleanser offerings, I've settled on the Glycolic 12%. My skin is generally quite dehydrated, prone to hormonal breakouts and flaking (combination/normal skin). This cleanser doesn't dry me out and I noticed a dramatic improvement in the texture of my skin after only a few uses. It doesn't foam up which takes some getting used to, but when faced with dramatic improvements, who cares?! I thought this cleanser would be too harsh on my somewhat sensitive, dry skin- but it wasn't.

Thorough clean - 24-10-2017 by

I’ve got very oily skin and prone to blackheads in the t-zone.
This cleanser completely cleans my skin of all makeup and oil and leaves it feeling smooth.
I don’t think it would be good for sensitive or dry skin types.

Definite Improvements After 1 Month - 18-10-2017 by

They aren't lying when they say you'll see dramatic results after 1 month. I usually never write reviews but this one couldn't stay quite. I've been suffering from acne for about 4 years. Nothing has worked until this came into my life. I use it at night for 30 seconds. After a month use, my skin has cleared up so much. I only get about 1-2 pimples and still a few white heads but it is so much better than what is was before. I was a bit skeptical and waited out to see if my skin will break out again, but so far so good. Would recommend.

A great gentle but effective cleanser - 27-09-2017 by

I have dealt with congested skin for years and years, tried tens if not hundreds of products to clear my skin up. The Skinstitut Glycolic range is the best I have tried especially for the price point. . This is a really great cleanser and I definitely notice a difference in my skin when I don't use it one day. Will continue to repurchase!

Nothing like having clean, clear skin! - 04-09-2017 by

I've been suffering with hormonal pimples and those annoying small little face bumps for years. I love the tea tree scent, it's super fresh and this makes my face feel squeaky clean without feeling dry like most acne-targeted cleansers that strip oil. While I still get the occasional pimple this cleanser helps clear them up super quick, I don't get bad bouts of breakouts anymore and my skin produces less oil throughout the day. So glad I found this cleanser, and the tube is HUGE with daily use it will easily last 6-9 months. I highly recommend!

Love it! - 15-08-2017 by

This is a great cleanser for anyone! Really gentle on the skin and helps keep breakouts at bay. Love it. Recommend it to anyone. Skinstitut is a great brand.

Fantastic product! - 15-06-2017 by

A fantastic, Australian made product. I have been using this on my upper back and face daily for the past 2 weeks and have noticed a significant improvement in my skin. It's not too harsh and has a pleasant, mild tea tree scent. Would definitely recommend it and will be purchasing again.

Great cleanser - 13-02-2017 by

I love this cleanser! It doesn't foam up so it is not too harsh on the skin. It removes all my makeup and does not dry out my skin or leave it feeling tight. I use it every night :)

YOU NEED THIS! - 21-11-2016 by

I rely on reviews when I am buying a product yet I hardly do reviews myself. In this case though I just had to. Put simply, this product does exactly what it says and it works!

I was using the Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser for months and it seemed to help my acne prone skin a little but not amazingly so when I ran out I purchased this one based on reviews and im SOOOOO pleased I did. My massive pores and constant breakouts are a thing of the past. I use this every night after I take my make up off and it has totally improved my skin. If you are contemplating buying this but aren't sure just take the plunge and I promise that you will wish you did it sooner.

My skin feels and looks amazing! - 13-09-2016 by

I have only recently started using Skinstitut products maybe two weeks ago and i have already noticed my skin is less oily!! shocker right? Never thought i would EVER get rid of my oily skin. I've noticed my pores are starting to minimise as well. They've always been rather large to me & a confidence issue. I use this cleanser along with the glycolic scrub 14% retinol cream & moisturiser. It was quite powerful on the face & has made my skin very dry & flakey but that's nothing a little moisturiser can't fix. I wouldn't recommend to people who are prone to redness of the skin as it does enhance it a lot more!! It does seem a little pricey to get all the products but i do not regret a thing they say a little goes a long way & it truly does!!

Light and effective cleanser - 27-07-2016 by

I recently had a facial and since I had been using skinstitut products for the first time ever I have been told my skin is in good shape and well hydrated.
My skin is blemish free which is saying something. I am prone to blackheads and hormonal breakouts. After using this cleanser my skin feels fresh and clean. My make up comes off easily. If you are a person who doesn't like strong smelling cosmetics this product is for you.
Great value for money as a llittle bit does go along way.
I also use the skinstitut retinol, glycol if scrub, vitamin c powder, hydration mask and
Age defuse 50+.
Still unsure? Try the starter pack.

Finally found something that works! - 14-05-2016 by

I have rather sensitive skin and am prone to whiteheads/blackheads and painful pimples. I've tried an array skin care products but found that my skin gets worse. I heard about Skintitute through watching beauty gurus on YouTube and they had given great reviews on this product. I had to get my hands on this cleanser asap! I must admit, my skin felt so gentle and smooth after the first wash. The smallest amount goes a long way and the scent is amazing! The 200ml will last a very long time which is a plus. I have been using this cleanser for a few days now and have noticed the bumps on my skin are slowly diminishing. I've never seen results develop this fast and safe to say I've finally found something that works.!

Holy Grail - 14-04-2016 by

I have been battling with adult acne for about 1 year now and this is the only thing that has been able to get rid of it. I am only one week in and my skin still has some little spots but it is 110% better than what it has been. This is the only product that has been able to do it without sucking/drying the life out of my skin. You only need to use the tiniest amount and I can tell that it is going to last me forever!

Magical facewash - 23-11-2015 by

My local beauty therapist uses Skinstitut products. I've quite liked my skin after having a Skinstitut-based facial so I decided to try out this cleanser when my skin was looking particularly bleak. I love it! In a matter of days, it has cleared up a horrible, (nearly) whole face breakout and has prevented further breakouts. Skinstitut products are reasonably priced for the size (particularly when bought from Adore!) and you only need the smallest amount. This is a must buy for everyone.

Cleansing & Exfoliating - 26-02-2015 by

This cleanser can be foamed up nicely and you only need a little, however it is not stripping and leaves my skin feeling comfortable yet very clean (I have normal skin with some oily areas and some dry patches). I did not need to use any exfoliating products while I was using this face wash as it works amazingly as an chemical exfoliant.

The amount you get will lasts for ages. There is a bit of a tea-tree scent, which I usually don't like, but this cleanser is just so good I am prepared to overlook it.

I have run out of mine and I can already see my skin is starting to look worse from not using it so I am re-purchasing.

Great product & value for money - 06-09-2014 by

Works well & is good value, I like this product as it is Australian...

Great product. - 05-09-2014 by

I swapped to this from a more expensive brand, and I like this better. It works well and I would recommend it to anyone.

Smells great and works well - 16-06-2014 by

Smells fantastic and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. Great value for money. I will certainly buy this again.

good - 09-09-2013 by

I've used and loved Dermalogica for years, but i'm loving the change with skinstitute.

Incredible - 08-08-2013 by

In a matter to 7 days my skin is looking incredible. I had blotchy pigmented skin with break outs. Literally within 7 days my skin is glowing, break outs are gone and is feeling amazing.

Holy grail cleanser - 29-06-2013 by

This cleanser is the best! I was using cetaphil on my sensitive, acne prone skin but I felt like it wasn't cleaning my skin enough. This cleanser is gentle on my skin yet deep cleansing, leaving my skin perfectly clean but not irritated. I have seen my acne improve as well as pore size diminish. I love this cleanser! A small amount goes a long, long way.
