Acnex Purifying Cleansing Gel

  • $25.00

This cleansing gel was developed to be strongly effective AND very mild to the skin. The result is a formula that offers in-depth cleansing without stripping the natural moisture from your skin. It removes excess sebum and impurities and helps treat and reduce acne pimples for a clearer, healthier skin.

The Acnex purifying cleansing gel contains 2% salicylic acid, an acid that penetrates pores, fights acne pimples and prevents new ones from forming. Amongst ingredients, witch hazel extract soothes and serves as an astringent while zinc PCA seboregulates to minimise secretions. Vegetal extracts provide a natural soothing scent.

This product can be used alone or in combination with prescription drugs for clearer, healthier skin.

The Absolute Best!

A Shoppers Drug Mart employee recommended this to me. I struggle with hormonal acne and get big cyst like blemishes when I get my breakouts. It has cleared my skin tremendously! And I am absolutely obsessed with how soft and silky it makes my skin feel, I hate using my other face washes now because this one just feels so good to use. I also have extremely sensitive skin, to the point where other acne washes would actually make my skin hurt when I used them and this one has never made my skin sore or sensitive. I also use it on my body if I get body breakouts and it clears them right up. I've had this product for 4 months and I've only used 1/4 of the bottle (that's using on my body too). Highly recommend this product if u have extremely sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. My skin is glowing!
