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.

100% LOVE! - 19-11-2018 by

Very gentle on the skin. I have sensitive skin and its a life saver. Smells really nice its not overpowering just lightly scented. Really deep cleanses.

Brilliant cleanser - 19-11-2018 by

I really enjoyed this cleanser. Lactic Acid works really well on my skin and I definitely noticed a difference while using this one.

For reference my skin is oily/combination with occasional breakouts and I am 29.
I would definitely purchase this product again

It also takes forever to finish - so very good value for money :)

best cleanser out - 16-11-2018 by

This cleanser is amazing. it really cleared up my skin... and I hardly ever get breakouts now. I use this cleanser morning and night. the only down side is that it does come out really fast so you do really need to be careful when squeezing it into your hand. a little bit goes a long way

Perfect for sensitive acne prone skin - 16-11-2018 by

I have seen dramatic results in my skin. I was starting to break out a lot around my chin and jawline so I decided to try this product along with other skinstitut products and the results have been great! It is not too harsh on the skin and I use it morning and night with the skin blemish and oily skin moisturiser for my oily acne prone skin and it has been a lifesaver! Highly recommend.

Love it - 15-11-2018 by

Love it amazing gentle not hash cleanser ,

Great for clearing up my 13 year old daughter's complexion - 13-11-2018 by

This product was recommended for my daughter's skin after she had a facial at our local beauty salon. Within two weeks of using this cleanser my daughter's pimples and blackheads were deduced. She has very sensitive, oily skin and this cleanser has calmed her skin down.

best cleanser I have ever used - 12-11-2018 by

This cleaner is amazing, so gentle yet keeps your face clear.
My skin has never looked better.

The best cleanser! - 12-11-2018 by

I have never found a cleanser that comes close to this one. Really is so gentle on the skin and cleanse deep into the pores and you only need to use the tiniest amount of product so the bottle lasts months. I use mine daily at night and its lasted about 4 months already which is amazing!! It smells really nice too and has a cool gel like texture.

Amazing product and lasts forever! - 05-11-2018 by

Im on to my second bottle of this and I couldn't recommend enough. Really cleanses deep and gets all bits of makeup. It smells amazing and is really gentle.

Great Product - 30-10-2018 by

This cleanser is great, removes all my makeup really easily. you only need the smallest amount so it lasts ages! great value for money

Staple daily cleanser for many skin types - 29-10-2018 by

This is a skincare staple for me, I use this in the evenings to help thoroughly clean and gently exfoliate my skin. I have combination/oily skin so this works so well through my oily zones but is not too drying on my cheeks. The smell is fruity and pleasant and the cleanser itself is very gentle despite the Lactic acid ingredient.
Leaves my skin smooth and clear with daily use.

Very effective cleanser and great price! - 26-10-2018 by

I received this as a sample and was quite excited as I had been eyeing off some of the skinstitut products but wasn't sure how I would find them.

I absolutely loved this cleanser. A little goes a long way and so even as a sample size it lasted me close to a week (cleansing once a day). It's a gel like consistency, which is my preferred type of cleanser as anything milky tends to congest my skin more.

After using for a few days I felt my face was much cleaner, clearer and the small break outs I tend to get on my chin were not appearing. Once I am finished with my current cleanser I will be purchasing a bottle of this!

Great for my skin - 26-10-2018 by

I can't use any other brand on my face now. As someone who struggled with acne since I was 13, this is the only face wash that has kept my skin under control. I'm so glad I discovered it.

100% Love this! - 25-10-2018 by

I usually go through all different branded cleansers and never actually find one I stick to or love until this one. Its completely worth buying! Smells really great and cleanses well. My skin always feels really fresh and clean afterwards. Has a really nice cool gel texture. The bottle lasts forever too so really great (I use this daily and the one bottle has lasted me about 4-5 months and still has product left in it!)

Great clean but not too harsh - 24-10-2018 by

I’ve been really happy with this cleanser. I have pale, sensitive skin prone to breakouts and this product has worked wonders. It provides a good thorough clean but isn’t too harsh. Since using it I’ve noticed my skin is clearer and fresher. On to my third tube so I’m definitely a fan!

Gentle and effective cleanser - 22-10-2018 by

This cleanser is great for aged skin. Has helped smooth out my bumping skin by gently cleaning without drying it out. Very easy to use.

Love - 19-10-2018 by

Skin type - combination
Target areas - congestion, dry patches, dull uneven skin tone

I love this as my 2nd cleanser in my night routine (every 2nd night)! It is so gentle and soothing, plus smells gorgeous. Great supple feeling after use and a deep clean.. remember to shake the bottle and only use a small amount for best lather. This will last forever.

Bang for your Buck - 18-10-2018 by

This cleaner lasts forever! A little goes a long way and it foams up very nicely on your skin. It has a slime like texture and can be a bit hard to manage ( I always turn the bottle upside down and squeeze just a little bit then close the lid before putting back down). It gently cleans and exfoliates and I use it on alternating days, I have combo oily/dry skin and I find this never leaves me feeling too tight or not clean enough.

Better for my sensitive skin - 18-10-2018 by

I had tried the glycolic cleanser before but it broke me out because it was too harsh. The Lactic cleanser is perfect and you really don’t need much at all. I have experienced no irritation since using this instead. I also use some on my shoulders and chest and have noticed the skin there is so much smoother.

Gentle and hydrating - 17-10-2018 by

Despite its name containing the label acid it's actually very gentle even to use on daily basis. It's considered the lowest level of acid in the product range so I guess it's good use it as an introduction to other stronger cleansers.

Good Cleanser - 17-10-2018 by

Skinstitute products are always good if your skincare regime needs a revamp. This cleanser is great. Gentle on sensitive skin and not too drying. I am quite prone to fine lines and dryness and I think this cleanser works well with my skin type.

Great as a second cleanser - 15-10-2018 by

I like to double cleanse especially after wearing makeup. This product just gives my skin that extra clean feeling with leaving it dehydrated. Works well with my sensitive skin.

Good gentle cleanser - 14-10-2018 by

Pretty good cleanser and great to introduce more active ingredients to your skin care routine. It didn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry, just clean. Mine was kind of a lumpy texture not sure if that is normal as have yet to repurchase.

Hydrating and Cleansing! - 12-10-2018 by

I started using this product a year ago and im so happy I found it. Its super cleansing and feels great on the skin. Also doesn't leave your skin feeling dry - it feels hydrating. A little product goes a long way also. I was breaking out on my face when I first decided to try this and my skin has never been better. 100% worth a try!

Acne Clearer - 11-10-2018 by

I have PCOS so my acne is near impossible to clear, but this product is the first one that really helped clear my skin without drying it out or making it go red (my skin is also sensitive).

This is my new 'regular' face wash.

Great first cleanser to step up skincare game - 11-10-2018 by

I bought this and 4 other products and found it to be a great cleanser for my pigmented dry sensitive skin. Really good first cleanser for a teen or anyone wanting to start using good skincare. Found the lactic acid not too harsh and reasonably priced product for the huge amount.

Best cleanser ever - 10-10-2018 by

I have dry, combination skin and have tried so many products over the years. This is my favourite cleanser. It is gentle, hydrates and exfoliates without thinning out your skin like glycol acid products do. I use glycol acid products intermittently as well but absolutely love this cleanser. It has transformed my skin completely. I use to get break outs. Since I began using this product, my skin is clear and smooth. I rarely get acne. A must try product. Can't live without it.

Love this product! - 05-10-2018 by

I could not recommend this product more! conventional cleansers leave my skin dry, tight, red, and irritated but this cleanser leaves me completely clean and soft with no irritation!

Beautiful cleanser - 01-10-2018 by

This cleanser foams really well and a pea size amount is all you need . It lasts a long time so is great value . Doesn’t dry the skin . Leaves your skin feeling cleansed and fresh .

Hydrates and exfoliates - 01-10-2018 by

I have sensitive combination skin and this is my HG night time cleanser. Especially on days I've worn makeup, this cleanser is able to clean and exfoliate my face without over doing it. I was initially hesitant about this cleanser as the word "L-lactic ACID" sounded so intimidating. I thought it would dry my skin out but its actually the opposite. I gently removes dead skin cells and hydrates the skin, making my skin the perfect starting point for my toner and serums and moisturiser to come. I've been using this cleanser for almost 2 years now during the night time and sometimes in the mornings when my skin is looking dull or especially congested and I'd recommend this for people looking for an extremely gentle everyday exfoliation that doesn't dry you out.

Okay product - 27-09-2018 by

I have tried a few products in the Skinstitut brand and they pretty much are not worth buying again for my skin type which is sensitive combination. Maybe too many active ingredients, I felt like my skin was being stripped of its natural oils and overcompensate with excess oil flow.

Makes your skin feel soft and clean - 26-09-2018 by

I love this cleanser BUT my only bugbear is the packaging. It seems like a real great deal to open it to use and the "shake before using" can be a bit annoying
But overall a lovely cleanser and a great price.

Pretty good - 25-09-2018 by

This is a good and effective cleanser and I have used it for a number of years. However my only complaint is that it's a very runny product and I tend to lose a lot of it when dispensing in my hand...this might be why the tube is so big.

I have an oily t-zone and rarely break out. It's been good for my skin.

The best! - 25-09-2018 by

This is now my favourite cleanser! Love it so much! Really great daily cleaner and I’ve already noticed my skin is clearer in just a few weeks of using it. 100% would recommend and re-purchase.

Amazing cleanser - 24-09-2018 by

Well priced, skin feels beautiful and clean afterwards, non drying. Will definitely be repurchasing

Budget friendly and effective - 24-09-2018 by

A little bit of this product goes a long way. It feels really nice and foams well on the skin and your skin feels gently cleansed afterwards. It also smells great, slightly fruity but not overpowering.

I used the glycolic scrub once which was too harsh for my skin, which is combination dry and oily in some patches. This is a good product for sensitive skin.

It really is a great price, 200ml will last a long time using twice a day. Laser Clinics Australia also offer tester packets if you want to try before you buy (which is what I did). I would buy this again.

Awesome Cleanser! - 24-09-2018 by

I am LOVING this cleanser! It's perfect for my skin (normal) I feel like it gives an amazing clean and not drying after.

my favourite cleanser to date - 21-09-2018 by

this product is a holy grail of cleansers for me!! it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft. reduces the redness for me too. i use this as part of my skin care regime on the daily and have only found that it has improved my skin x11

Has saved my skin! - 21-09-2018 by

I use this every morning and a scrub every night. This smells nice and feels really nice when using. My skin recently broke out and the Skinstitut products have really helped my skin recover quicker.

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.
