Say goodbye to acne blemishes and pimples...and hello to clearer skin!

Unwanted breakouts are frustrating and there is something you can do about it. Start with a face wash that targets acne-prone skin. This non-drying, foaming face wash gently exfoliates skin without stripping your complexion. Our Japanese formula includes a 2% concentration of salicylic acid that penetrates pores to help clear blackheads, whiteheads and acne blemishes. It does this by breaking down the bonds between dead skin cells so the pores can become clear. It can also help absorb the skin's excess sebum production which reduces the likelihood of new breakouts. 

Other washes can dry out the skin, but this is infused with royal jelly and antioxidant-rich botanicals like aloe vera and green tea to help hydrate, soften and soothe skin.

Ideal for acne-prone skin as well as a gentle exfoliant for all skin types.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older skin! I have been using this cleanser for 5+ years, 4-5 times a week. I had oily, acne skin as a young woman, now that I am 60 years old, my skin is much drier but not without an occasional breakout, blackheads (nose), and milia. The fresh, lightly scented rosemary lather is SUPER gentle, does not dry out my skin, but does an excellent job keeping milia and blackheads at bay. I use this cleanser in the shower in the morning. I let the lather sit on my skin for about 15-20 seconds while I wash my hair, then I rinse. This is my favorite DHC cleanser.
