This is a very standard cleansing lotion with mild foaming action. The inclusion of glycolic acid is wasted because it is rinsed down the drain before it has a chance to work. Even if it had time to work, however, it wouldn’t, because it is joined by alkaline potassium hydroxide (which is lye), which would render it ineffective. At best, this is an average, overpriced cleanser for normal to slightly dry skin that can be overly drying and irritating.

Washes away dirt and impurities giving your skin a renewed, refreshed, glow without that dry or tight feeling.
