Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser  by Skinstitut


Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser is a gentle foaming cleanser and light exfoliator suitable for all skin types, especially those that are sensitive and irritated. Formulated with the chirally correct form of lactic acid, L-lactic Acid is the purest form of this type of alpha-hydroxy acid which makes it safe for sensitive and delicate skin types to exfoliate and decongest the skin.

Key benefits of Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser:

  • Deeply hydrates & nourishes
  • Exfoliates & decongests problematic skin
  • Reduces irritation & sensitivity
  • Streghtens skin integrity

Lactic Acid works by sloughing away dead skin cells, impurities, and sebum. By encouraging new cells to surface, this acid promotes a radiant complexion and more even tone. The hydrating properties of Lactic Acid are supplemented in this cleanser by extracts of Raspberry, Soya Bean Oil, Vitamin E, and Goji Berry. Also developed with Vitamin B5, this cleanser not only removes impurities and promotes hydration, but also nourishes and strengthens the health of the skin. Seaweed Extract is a powerful superfood ingredient that reacts with proteins in the skin to form a protective barrier and further lock in moisture.

The hydrating and nourishing properties of Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser make it safe to use daily and perfect for mature, sensitive, irritated, or delicate skin types.

How to use Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser:

  • Squeeze a pea-sized amount onto wet hands.
  • Lather over face, avoiding eye area.
  • Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.
  • Follow with your chosen serum or moisturiser.

What is the difference between Lactic Acid and glycolic acid?
Both are exfoliating alpha-hydroxy acids, but glycolic acid is more active. Lactic Acid is less concentrated, less irritating, more moisturising, and more gentle, making this exfoliant perfect for delicate or sensitive skin.

We recommend using Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser in combination with other Skinstitut products, such as Age Defense SPF 50+, to protect the skin from damaging environmental aggressors. Skinstitut correcting products can complement the use of Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser in fighting ageing, skin damage, and blemishes. Skinstitut Even Blend Serum assists in evening the skin tone, whilst Multi-Active Mist deeply hydrates and nourishes dehydrated and sensitised skin types. Skinstitut Retinol Serum fights acne and associated skin concerns.

Great - 19-09-2018 by

I’ve used this everyday for about 3 years, I use a pea sized amount mix it with water to foam it up a bit and it does the job well! If I use too much it can dry out my skin a bit but I have dry skin so that’s easily done. But I do love this. Tip! When you store it (I have mine in the shower) instead of sitting it on it’s lid like it’s meant to, I flip it the other way so the lid is on top and I just lean it up against something, I find it can leak or water can get into the lid and make it even more runny.

So Effective - 13-09-2018 by

I have found this product great for not only removing all makeup but I have noticed an enormous improvement in my skin hydration and the tone of my face - much more even and a lot smoother.

Holy grail skin product - 12-09-2018 by

I’ve re-purchased this product multiple times now. The formula itself feels soft and gentle on the skin and I’ve noticed a big reduction in the amount of discolouration I have on my skin compared to before I started using it. Would highly recommend to anyone dealing with the same problem.

Great cleanser - 11-09-2018 by

I alternate between the gentle cleanser and glycolic scrub. This is great for sensitive skin.

LOVE - 10-09-2018 by

This cleanser is wonderful. It is perfect for all skin types, especially those with acne/oily skins. It is very deep cleansing, but without stripping. It has a beautiful smell to it.

My all time favourite product! - 05-09-2018 by

The best cleanser I've used. Every morning and night I make sure I use this and my skin has improved so much with it!

Fantastic Product! - 05-09-2018 by

I purchased this cleanser a four days ago and have been using it daily. I have noticed an immediate change in my skin. Its much softer and brighter overall. My skin is dry and this cleanser is gentle but really effective in removing oil and any dry skin build up. It prepares the skin for moisturiser beautifully. I will definitely re-purchase this item and recommend it for dry and sensitive skin types! Its a bargain!

Does the trick! - 03-09-2018 by

This product is great for my sensitive skin and really leaves me feeling hydrated and moisturised. It's so smooth and definitely a new favourite.

Fantastic cleanser - 03-09-2018 by

I love this cleanser and have been using it for a few years. My skin is very sensitive and I never have any issues with this cleanser aggravating my skin. It leaves my skin smooth, soft and clean. As it contains lactic acid, I like to use it as a second cleanse after (removing makeup) followed by an AHA/BHA toner.

Gentle but active, a little drying - 31-08-2018 by

I was looking for a new cleanser after my Obagi Gentle Cleanser run out. My sister uses Skinstitut and recommended this cleanser as being "Gentle but active". I find it a little drying on my combination skin, but I feel like it has reduced flakiness.

My main gripe is with the packaging. I think the hole in the cap is too big for the consistency of the product, and every time I open it, i lose more product than id intended on using before i even dispense it into my hand.

A little goes a long way, and sometimes after my shower my toner foams a little as I haven't rinsed the cleanser off completely.

Hopefully Skinstitut improve the packaging before I repurchase!

perfect for everyday - 24-08-2018 by

I have been using this cleanser everyday for months now and can't live without it. It has a great smell, a nice texture and feels like it gets my skin clean without stripping too much of the natural oils. My skin doesn't feel dry and tight after cleansing with this product. I'm not sure that the amount of lactic acid in this product is enough to have a noticeable effect but I will continue to use it.

Beautiful cleanser hands down - 24-08-2018 by

This cleanser is so beautiful and gentle and leaves your skin silky smooth. I use this in rotation to the Skinstitut gentle cleanser and my skin has never been better. I feel this has helped my breakouts and hormonal acne and will continue using this cleanser! Love it!

Pretty good cleanser - 22-08-2018 by

I received a free sample of this product with an order and it was pretty great. It's not the best cleanser ive ever tried, but it seemed to do a pretty good job

One of my all time favourites! - 22-08-2018 by

I love this cleanser! It smells amazing and great value for money as a little goes a long way. Its a great cleanser to use if you've got a concern of dehydration and or pigmentation due to the lactic acid. It can also be used on a shower puff as a body cleanser :)

A great all round Cleanser - 21-08-2018 by

I have finally found a cleanser that actually feels like its cleaning and doing something. My face is generally very sensitive and I find it hard to find a cleanser that feels like its working and not burning my face off. I use it morning and night and it's great. My face has cleared up heaps. Skinstitut is now my routine morning and night. LOVE IT!!!

This cleaner was aaaamazing - 21-08-2018 by

I had Occasional breakouts on my chin and forehead area this was my daily cleaners and it reduce to my breakouts and evened out my skin . Can’t recommend this enough!!

I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin - 20-08-2018 by

I was concerned about patchiness and discolouration on my face, I have been using this for a week now and have already noticed a difference. My skin is smooth and glowing. Will definitely be continuing to use this cleanser.

Great for removing make up and cleansing - 17-08-2018 by

I alternate this product every second day with the Skinstitut Glycolic 12% cleanser. It leaves your skin feeling divine and is not too drying.

SO GOOD !!! - 16-08-2018 by

I am totally in love with this cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, fresh and clean, and has helped to clear my congestion and blocked pores. I always double cleanse: once to remove my makeup, and again to actually cleanse my skin. You only need a pea-sized amount so the tube is incredibly great value!

Good so far - 14-08-2018 by

I purchased this a few weeks back with a range of Skinstitut products and have been enjoying so far. It has a bit of an odd smell but I think I am used to it now! It seems to clean the skin nicely and doesn't leave it too dry. The packaging is a little frustrating though, the product runs out of the lid as soon as you open it and I feel like I'm using more product than required because of that. Having said that, I am enjoying the feel of it on my skin and so far haven't had any breakouts from using a new product :)

a winter must - 14-08-2018 by

I love this cleanser! cleansing without striping the skin of it's normal moisture level

Love this product - 14-08-2018 by

This product is amazing, it lathers up so easy and you really do only need to use a very small amount of product. It has even out my skin and prevented break out. It removes make up really well too

Excellent - 14-08-2018 by

My favourite cleanser so gentle on my skin and does a great job

Great for combination/dry skin - 14-08-2018 by

I have been using this product for a little while and my skin has really cleared. I used it throughout my pregnancy with no concerns and it kept my skin bright and clean. I use it twice a day but find I need to use it twice at night to remove makeup.
I previously used the Skinstitute Glycolic Cleanser but it dried my skin out too much, for my dry/combination skin this is perfect.

My new daily cleanser! - 14-08-2018 by

LOVE this! I'm in my mid 40's with combination/oily skin which can sometimes be sensitive and my skin adores this cleanser... you only need the smallest amount (which means the tube lasts ages), and it leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh without feeling tight., and I love how it lathers up a bit too. I've not had a single breakout since using it either!

BEST CLEANSER EVER! - 14-08-2018 by

this is by far the best facial cleanser i have EVER used. It is gentle enough to use daily i use this morning and night no breakouts and my skin just looks glowing afterwards, I use this in conjunction with skinstitut vitamin c powder mixed with evenblend serum and the skinstitut moisturizer love the skin care range!

Great Cleanser! - 13-08-2018 by

I started using this a few months ago and I was so impressed. My skin has been so much clearer and it really removes all the makeup from the day. I usually get very irritated skin and this product is so gentle. Definitely worth it!

Amazing - 13-08-2018 by

I got put on this when i first started going to a beautician to help with blemishes and blackheads! worked amazing! only need the tiniest bit and lasts forever! i still use it a couple days a week in conjction with another cleanser! its a holy grail!!

Great for acne - 13-08-2018 by

I have seen a drastic difference in my skin since using this. I can tell it’s helped my acne on my forehead almost completely go away, which is nuts!!

Immediate Difference - 13-08-2018 by

I have recently been suffering from acne and congested skin. A microdermabrasion was recommended to me before using this product to remove all dead skin, so that the product would be more beneficial in clearing acne. After roughly a week of consistent use I noticed a huge difference in my skin, it had cleared and the overall texture was much better. I do recommend an exfoliation service before using products for congested skin.

Best Cleanser by far. - 11-08-2018 by

I love this cleanser.
Morning and night. Easy as. Best 1st step in the regime.
Been using the products for a year and get so many compliments on my skin.
I'm told I look younger. And my pigmentation has reduced.

Incredible cleanser - 09-08-2018 by

I love this cleanser so much. I have oily/sensitive skin but very acne prone. Since using this cleanser my breakouts have minimize significantly and my skin tone is very even with minimal redness.

The only issue I find is it does make my skin a bit dry, which has been helpful to combat my oily skin but during colder seasons it can be harder to rehydrate.

Great value, improvement with acne - 09-08-2018 by

I suffer from chronic acne caused by a number of health issues (ovarian cysts, digestive system not working properly), and even despite those issues this cleanser has definitely made an improvement in clearing my skin! I have been using the tiniest amount each night to cleanse my face, and after a week of using it there is a noticeable difference. The bottle is huge and you only need to use a tiny amount of product - excellent value for money!

Deep Cleanse - 08-08-2018 by

I am new to using the Skinstitut brand and within a few days of using this cleaner my skin has never felt better. it is brighter and more smooth and you only need to the tiniest amount. I use this with the cleaner brush and my skin has never felt better

Great, affordable cleansers - 08-08-2018 by

This cleanser is fantastic. I have congested skin and have found this really does the trick in terms of keeping my skin clean without drying it out. I particularly like that it foams/suds up. The bottles is huge - great value for money. A little bit goes a long way so be careful when you are squeezing it out.

Byrne - 08-08-2018 by

Sadly didn't agree with my skin. The product claims to be for all skin types but definitely didn't work for mine. Within a few days I started getting break outs which I haven't had for a long time then when I swapped back to dermalogica they cleared up. Its good to reason the reviews to see that it does work for others.

Does its job, goes a long way, but don't use frequently during winter - 07-08-2018 by

Bought this product after researching about the benefits of lactic acid on skin, specifically acne-prone skin.

I was pleased with its cleansing capability. It did a wonderful job cleansing my skin deeply and exfoliating without having to be too abrasive.

One minus point though - don't use this everyday during the colder months! It left my skin overly dry even with thorough moisturising. Lesson learnt - use this once or twice a week.

Otherwise, it's a wonderful product I would recommend to anyone with acne issues.

Gentle Cleanser - 07-08-2018 by

I have been using this cleanser for a couple of weeks and really like it. It is very gentle on my skin and I use it every day. Great for younger skin! Don't forget to shake the cleanser before you use it.

Did not agree with my skin - 02-08-2018 by

I decided to buy this cleanser after using the glycolic cleanser for a while and finding it too drying.

The Lactic cleanser, although is meant to be more hydrating and gentle, dried my skin out just as much - if not more!

I experienced dry patches and areas of inflammation/dermatitis. Especially around the nose and mouth area. The dry patches just refused to heal and continued to flake for the entire time I used the product.

I really wanted to love this product because I love Skinstitut as a brand but unfortunately after a few weeks of use I had to stop.

Some positives - makes your skin feel super clean, smells amazing and the tube would last forever, so great value for money!

An okay cleanser,just not for me - 01-08-2018 by

Gave this cleanser a go as I have combination skin,found to be really drying on me which is unusual as my skin generally tolerates most skin products well,switched back to the gentle cleanser and haven’t had a problem

The best cleanser I have ever used - 31-07-2018 by

THIS!! This is hands down the best cleanser I have ever come across. I am very particular about my skin care and never skimp, so I was originally pretty reluctant to try this as I thought of it as a lower end brand (given the price) but since using it my skin has never been better! No breakouts, oiliness, dryness and even takes off makeup! Can’t recommend it enough!

Amazing difference - 30-07-2018 by

I have combination/dry skin and this has instantly made a huge difference, my skin is less congested and already looks much healthier, would recommend!

Lovely gentle exfoliator - 24-07-2018 by

My skin is more sensitive in winter and shows some pigmentation in the past year. I have used the L lactic cleanser daily for 3 weeks now and I can start seeing the difference in my skin texture.. It feels cleaner and looks clearer.. I feel that it exfoliates without being too rough on my skin

Good results - 24-07-2018 by

I have quite sensitive skin, and I found this cleanser did not irritate it. It does make your skin feel a little tight after using it though, so you need to follow up with a good moisturiser!

Great product for hydration and cleansing - 23-07-2018 by

I used trial packets of the gentle cleanser and this product and found both made my skin smooth and non-itchy (I had very dry/itchy skin). The l-lactic acid I just brought recently has been one of the big reasons my skin has been improving.
At first, my skin went through a "purge" phase with this product e.g started breaking out and new pimples were coming to the surface.
I realised my skin was just being purged and the product was bringing out the acne in the deeper layers.
It has now stopped with this phase and is hydrating my skin, removes all the excess oil on my nose and forehead and has improved my skin sensitivity enormously.

The only thing is using too much will dry out my skin so I stick to a small amount either once or twice a day depending if I'm wearing makeup/super oily etc.

Great results - 17-07-2018 by

I used this cleanser for a while and loved the results, it does dry my skin out a little bit though.

I ADORE this cleanser, trumps all others! - 17-07-2018 by

I have combination skin that reacts to so many skincare products, and the Skinstitut L-Lactic Cleanser is one of the very few cleansers that my skin agrees with. My skin used to be quite bumpy and I had the occasional breakouts, but after about 6 months using this cleanser, I have clear smooth skin and my hyperpigmentation has reduced dramatically! In the mornings, I lather a small amount in damp hands and massage into my skin, then wipe it off with a warm damp muslin cloth. I repeat this process in the evening after removing my makeup with the Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser. So happy with how my skin has been feeling, it's much clearer since switching to Skinstitut products!

Very effective cleanser but gentle on my skin. - 16-07-2018 by

I Iove this cleanser. I have combination skin, prone to breakouts but also prone to occasional eczema in certain places. This cleanser is gentle enough that it doesn’t flare my eczema but also exfoliating enough that since starting it, I haven’t felt the need to do an extra exfoliation step. It leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth but not dry or tight afterwards. And the price is just the cherry on top!

A gentle and refining cleanser! - 16-07-2018 by

I recently changed to this cleanser from another brand of gentle cleanser. I had heard good things about Skinstitut and was encouraged to swap my products to their brand. I chose this one as I wanted a step up from gentle to more active, without irritating my skin too much. I have been using for about 2 weeks now and have found it to be very nice. It feels like it really gets in and cleans out the impurities without being too damaging. I use this once in the morning before my makeup routine and twice in the evening to help remove my makeup- which I feel it does! My skin feels soft and more refined as well. I'm hoping with longer use it will help even out my skin tone, along with the other Skinstitut products I use.

The best cleanser - 12-07-2018 by

I have just purchased my second bottle of this cleanser- which is something that I never do, I am usually a product jumper as I never am 100% happy.
With this product I am delighted!!!
My skin is brighter, pores appear smaller and I have had minimal breakouts.
Love this product and all the products in the Skinstitut range.

Excellent - 11-07-2018 by

After using Skinstitut's Glycolic Scrub and Cleanser (my HG products), I finally tried Skinstitut's lactic acid cleanser. Not surprisingly, it is awesome, but I'm not a huge fan of the fruity smell. I much prefer the tea-tree in the glycolic products, but the cleansers are probably equally effective. I suspect that the glycolic cleanser is aimed at an oilier/combo skin type, and this at drier skins, but I found both to be excellent and completely non-irritating.

The Best Cleanser Youll Ever Use - 11-07-2018 by

I didn't realise how great this cleanser was until i stopped using it.

OK product - very poor packaging - 10-07-2018 by

Meh. I have acne-prone, sensitive, dehydrated skin and have found lactic acid cleansers really helpful in the past (particularly the Dermalogica resurfacing cleanser)... this one doesn't seem to do much for me. I don't think it's helped clear congestion around my nose at all, in fact it may have clogged my pores a bit. However, I don't think it broke me out. Additionally, the product seems VERY liquid-y, which means that it comes out very quickly from this sort of cap.

like this a lot! - 09-07-2018 by

I have combination skin and this cleanser is really effective in keeping my skin clear. It is really gentle so i can use it daily, it doesn't strip my skin or leave me with dry patches, so I really like this. I use it with the normal skin moisturiser and retinol serum and i have honestly never noticed my skin to be so clear.

Gentle cleanse - 07-07-2018 by

This is a beautiful gentle cleanser, it helps to clean your skin without drying it out and is perfect for sensitive skin, it smells lovely also

Best cleanser I've ever used - 05-07-2018 by

I have tried so many different cleansers over the years to help treat my hormonal acne (ive just turned 30) and this is by far the best one.
Not only is it super affordable but it leaves your skin feeling clean but not stripped. Ive been using for 2 years now and haven't looked back

Great everyday cleanser - 04-07-2018 by

A gentle yet effective cleanser that has done wonders for my congested acne prone skin. Removes make up, dirt and gently exfoliates for an even complexion.

Awesome clean - 04-07-2018 by

I started using this product about a month ago, my skin in super clean afterwards and feels very soft. I cannot imagine using anything else this has become my everyday cleanser, it does not hurt my skin and I have also noticed less pimples appearing.

Awesome clean - 04-07-2018 by

This product has newly become a staple in my skin care routine. Not only does my face feel super clean, I have also noticed less pimples appearing. I use this cleanser daily, I love it and will probably never change products

Amazing - 03-07-2018 by

The skinstitut l-lactic cleanser is AMAZING. Always leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. I have sensitive skin and it’s been perfect and hasn’t caused any issues at all. It smells amazing too!

A great gentle cleanser for every day use. - 02-07-2018 by

I found this cleanser to be perfect for use day and night and effective at helping clean my skin. I don’t suffer from break outs so I was looking for a product that would provide gentle cleansing without causing any irrational and that’s what I got. I have normal to dry skin and found this great to use on its own or after using the glycolic scrub. Product is great value for money as you only need a small amount. I did find it worked best when lathered in my hands first and then applied to the face.

My HG cleanser - 02-07-2018 by

This is my absolute favourite cleanser and I always come back to it. I have normal skin, occasionally oily in my t-zone but this cleanser does not break me out, it doesn’t dry my skin out and it takes my makeup off first go! I still double cleanse just to be sure but it leaves my skin feeling super clean and fresh and would recommend it 100%. The only thing I don’t like is that I can find it sometimes to be a little on the runny side so I have to store the bottle upside down to avoid leakage. I find the easiest way to deal with that is to put it in a travel bottle which also makes it a lot easier to control the amount that comes out.

Nice cleanser but not effective enough for breakout prone skin - 29-06-2018 by

This is a nice gentle cleanser and safe for sensitive skin but its exfoliating properties are not strong enough for my combination skin (prone to hormonal breakouts and also some surface dehydration at times). I felt it wasn't thoroughly cleansing my skin, whilst it didn't dry my skin out I discontinued using it because it didn't seem to help with breakouts - preventing or treating. I think it would be beneficial for anyone less concerned with breakouts. I prefer the 12% Glycolic Cleanser from this brand for my skin type.

Good cleanser - 28-06-2018 by

I have combination/dry skin and bought this to get rid of my blackheads. I found this cleanser really effective, however, it was quite drying. If I had less dry skin I think this product would be great for me. However, that being said it is a great cleanser that does what it says, it is definitely worth a try.

Love it! - 28-06-2018 by

I was lucky to receive this cleanser as a sample with my last purchase. I am now a fan of this brand and am going to try the scrub next! The tiny bottle that I received goes a loooooong way as you only need a tiny amount to get a good cleanse going. I have oily/combo skin and have found this cleanser to be great for my skin.

Best cleaser - 27-06-2018 by

This is the best facial cleanser ever! I have sensitive skin and this is perfect for it. I've already gone through 2 bottles!

Great - 25-06-2018 by

I find this is amazing to remove makeup and clear the skin. Lasted me months and months. Gentle but effective!

Noticeable results - 25-06-2018 by

I received this product back in Feb as a gift with purchase and it's still going strong in my skincare routine. I was pleasantly surprised, initially thinking it might be too harsh for my sensitive dry skin type but works well with noticeable results. It exfoliates, smooths texture and helps to clear blemishes. I find using it once or twice a week is sufficient and a gentler cleanser on a daily basis.

Great cleanser - 25-06-2018 by

I use this every night. It doesn't irritate my skin at all. I am in my 60's & had very dehydrated skin. The only thing I would change is to put it in a different bottle as being in a tube a lot comes out & I end up wasting some.

Great everyday cleanser - 21-06-2018 by

I had a sudden breakout earlier this year that left me with a bit of scarring and sensitivity to my usual glycolic products. My facialist suggested I use this cleanser and it has been a game changer for me. Creates a really beautiful, creamy lather and has enough lactic to brighten skin and help reduce hyperpigmentation while still being gentle enough for everyday use. Really love it!

Favourite cleanser!! - 21-06-2018 by

I saw a Skinstitut specialist almost 3 years ago now and have been using this ever since! Most of my skincare routine consists of Skinstitut products but this cleanser is by far my favourite. I have dry and quite sensitive skin, they suggested starting with the gentle cleanser then building up to use the L-Lactic Cleanser however I started using this one from the beginning and it was fine. It didn't react with my skin and it really does get all the days dirt and makeup off your face. You only need a tiny amount in your hands and froth it up before applying it to your face. 1 bottle will last forever so it's great value for money!

Great cleanser - 18-06-2018 by

Really good cleanser for the price tag! Have used for 2 years now and will continue to use

Love it - 12-06-2018 by

I completed a quiz on skinstituts website and they recommended this product based on skin type (prone to dryness and redness) and concerns (dull and uneven tone). I am also prone to breakouts. This cleanser is amazing. Left my skin feeling so smooth, clean snd even hydrared unlike a lot of products which tend to dry me out to get the same clean feeling. I was also really impressed with how long it lasted (3-4 months worth daily use). I haven't noticed a particular improvement in my tone or redness but feel threat it has helped with breakouts. Will definitely re-purchase!

Great Ceanser - 07-06-2018 by

This is great to use after removing make up, I use it morning and at night and find it effectively removes day time build up, use once a day and build up to twice a day as I did find it dried my skin at first, now my skin looks clear and refreshed after using this cleanser, highly recommend, I have sensitive fair mature skin.

Fantastic Product - 01-06-2018 by

I love using skinstitute it feels great makes me feel super clean and my skin feels nourished!

I am obsessed - 19-05-2018 by

I actually love this cleanser, and I do not feel the need to double cleanse! I feel fresh and clean after after using this. You only need a tiny amount as it soaps up pretty nicely!

Shame about the packaging... - 14-05-2018 by

If this came in a pump package instead I would give it five stars.
It's very cleansing, takes away all your makeup, smells great, clears skin after a week or two (though with some initial drying - so use a good moisturizer after!)
Unfortunately though, the packaging is so inappropriate for the product. It's a very fine consistency, and I always end up wasting lots of it when it runs out of the tube so quickly.

All Positive - 10-05-2018 by

Seems to be keeping my skin clear and fresh and so far I have had no dryness or other side effects. Price is also very reasonable, will be re-purchasing!


amazing. Cleared up my oily bacne in two weeks!

HOLY GRAIL - 08-05-2018 by

I have tried so many different brands and methods for breakouts in my face and on neck and back. Honestly this stuff is an actual godsend

Will continue to buy - 08-05-2018 by

I really love this product! I started using skinstitut after a friend with similar skin issues made the recommendation after she saw results. I have normal skin but suffer congestion, adult/hormonal acne and the resulting redness.

I have previously used Lush which I loved using but found my skin needed extra help. After a couple of weeks of using this product consistently (as well as other Skinstitut products), I started to notice a reduction of redness and frequency of my acne. My skin feels clean and clear without being dry.

My only issue is with how the product is dispensed from the tube, it comes out really quickly so you have to be careful or you can easily use too much.

This product lasts a LONG time so the price is well worth it. I am on my second tube and will continue to buy.

Use once a day - 07-05-2018 by

I alternate Skinstitute cleansers. I use this one at night and then I use the gentle cleanser in the morning. I find that if I use it twice a day it can be a little drying.
Note: I have oily skin yet it is so dry around my mouth and nose. I am also very prone to acne. Ever since I have started using Skinstitute products it has completely changed my skin. I no longer wake up with a new pimple everyday and my skin has smoothed out so much.

L-Lactive Love. - 07-05-2018 by

So I've been using this cleanser for nearly a week now and I have already had two compliments that my skin looks good! (Excited to see my skin within the next few weeks). I suffer from breakouts but i was also on epiduo gel for 9 weeks until i turned to this cleanser. I use it morning and night, it makes your skin feel squeaky clean, it removes make up well! and you also only need the smallest bit because it lathers really well. I can't wait to try this with the Glycolic Scrub i got from skinstitut as well.

Amazing cleanser. Lasted me months and months. Gentle but effective!

Great product - 30-04-2018 by

I find this is amazing to remove makeup and clear the skin

So Fresh & So Clean - 30-04-2018 by

I love cleansers that leave my face feeling squeaky clean but not stripped of ALL oils. I have what you'd describe as 'normal skin' and this cleanser does the trick for me!

The One - 19-04-2018 by

I am in love with this cleanser! I spent ages trying different brands but Skinstitut is the one for me! I have dry/combination skin and this left my face feeling so smooth and clean without drying it out, like a lot of other brands did! Will forever be repurchasing.

good average cleanser - 17-04-2018 by

I bought this hoping for a little more than an average cleanser as i found their glycolic scrub so good. it cleaned my skin but over all didn't seem to do anything extra.

Great for Keratosis Pilaris - 16-04-2018 by

Fabulous cleanser, an absolute staple in my bathroom. It can get a bit drying on my skin, so I tend to alernate it with a creamier cleanser and bust this one out if I feel a breakout coming on. It’s also fabulous for keratosis pilaris and general spots on the body - I’ve actually been able to bare my arms and butt/thigh area his summer thanks to this stuff!

A little goes a long way - 16-04-2018 by

This will last forever as you only need a very small amount . However since using my skin has become dry not sure if this is the cause . I probably wouldn’t repurchase as I like the glycolic cleaner , works better for my skin .

my favourite cleanser - 12-04-2018 by

i've been using this for a few years andy love it, you only need a little bit and it last a long time.

The Best everyday cleanser for me - 29-03-2018 by

This little wonder is so good at clearing the skin, gentle doesn't sting and I look forward to taking off my makeup every night! This is one of many items I have from Skinstitut and I love the brand!

Favourite cleanser - 27-03-2018 by

This product saved my skin from breakouts. I would definitely recommend it. I have sensitive skin often with breakouts and blackheads. This cleanser has really helped. I've been using it for about 9 months and I'm still on my first bottle.

Amazing - 20-03-2018 by

I have tried so many other cleansers and found they break my skin out or leave me feeling stripped of any moisture. I have dry skin and this makes my skin feel soft and feels like a deep cleanse. So impressed with this will definitely repurchase!

My Fave - 28-02-2018 by

This is my favourite product in the skinstituit range. I have dry to combo skin and this is my go to everyday for smoothing and cleansing my face and neck. This has also helped with hormonal breakouts after having my baby. I use twice daily (morning and night) and noticed results within a few weeks of using in combination with other products from the same range. You will not regret purchase!

Gentle and effective - 25-02-2018 by

I just love this cleanser. I have combination skin with some redness as well. After washing with this, my skin is calm, balanced and feels great. I am a huge Skinstitut fan!

Holy grail - 21-02-2018 by

I cannot live without this product! A little goes a long way so the bottle lasts agesssss and my face feels really nice afterwards. I love that this helps with my congestion and keeps my face smooth

A deep clean guaranteed! - 19-02-2018 by

This cleanser is wonderful. It really gets deep into the pores and removes all the hunk out. My skin glows when I use this product but I cannot use consistently. My skin does need a break from it because the formula is so strong and effective. I don’t have sensitive skin, but it’s perfect for my combination skin!

Great for oily skin - 19-02-2018 by

This product is really good for oily skin, it helped to maintain my skin during the summer however I wouldn't recommend it as a daily cleanser as it can dry out your skin too much.

Love it! - 07-02-2018 by

My skin is very sensitive and dry and this has been amazing on my skin, doesn’t leave it feeling dry or sore and smells amazing. Would reccomend for all types of skin though as my mum uses it and her skin is very oily and it’s perfect for her too.
