If your skin is very greasy and remains oily throughout the day you need a good cleanser that tackles the oil but doesn’t strip the skin drying it out. The problem with some cleansers is that they remove too much oil so the skin starts to produce more to balance out the loss. This cleanser uses AHAs to first exfoliate deep into the skin. This unblocks pores, the root of outbreaks and spots. The surface is rejuvenated leaving healthier skin. The product can also be left on and used as a face mask.
