Gentle Cleanser, for Sensitive Skin is a cleansing gel/lotion hybrid that has surprisingly minimal cleansing ability, and the orange oil it contains isn’t something that you should apply to sensitive skin. This is an OK option for normal skin when minimal to no makeup needs to be removed.

Claims

Removes excess impurities and oil without drying and is gentle enough to be used several times daily on traumatized skin.

Brand Overview

SkinCeuticals At-A-Glance

With a strong presence in the professional (meaning spa and aesthetics) skincare market, SkinCeuticals has a mostly well-deserved reputation for producing serious-minded, research-driven products, several of which are centered on L-ascorbic acid (a form of vitamin C).

There are many good reasons to shop this line; it boasts a lineup up impressive vitamin C products, as well as some good retinol options and sunscreens. Even better is that the majority of its anti-aging products are packaged in containers that will protect their contents from light and air. Focusing on what Skinceuticals does best (which is serums, sunscreens, and specialty products) will be money well spent for visible results. The main drawbacks of this line are some products that contain fragrance ingredients, as well as potentially-drying alcohol, though they represent the minority of the brand’s offerings.
