Kate’s exclusive formula only begins with cleansing. Packed with ingredients that naturally kill acne-causing bacteria, this cleanser exfoliates the surface and penetrates deep into pores to combat inflammation, redness and irritation. While your skin is clean and receptive, we add a powerhouse of complementary ingredients to moisturize, fight free radicals, prevent aging, and promote elasticity and firmness. This cleanser is powerful but gentle, using a natural approach to clear skin – it won’t strip the surface of your skin which leaves it dry, tight and irritated.

Proper cleansing is the first and most important step toward beautiful, refreshed, clear skin. Washing away makeup, excess oil and impurities leaves your skin receptive to nourishing serums and moisturizers. Clean, refreshed skin feels fantastic, whether you are preparing to apply makeup for a busy day, or getting ready for sleep. Not only does this cleanser give your skin an energy boost, it also works hard to exfoliate dead skin cells away, leaving your skin looking and feeling brighter and healthier!

    I have very acne prone, non cystic, skin that is sensitive to stress, diet, sleep, caffeine, pretty much everything can make it break out. I have been using this cleanser twice a day for 4 months now and have noticed a few things, though I still actively break out, They heal faster than ive ever experienced. My skin feels SO much softer since Ive been using this, and I truly believe that this cleanser allows my total nutrition night repair complex to work more effectively because the combo has helped fade my PIH (acne red spots) SO much faster than anything I have ever tried. Upon Ericas suggestion a couple months ago, I started leaving the cleanser on for about 10-15 minutes when using it, like a mask, and feel like that makes it more effective and allows the salicylic acid to work stronger. I really truly love this cleanser and feel like it is the perfect balance between finding effective actives for acne prone skin and not harming yourself with harsh chemicals or endocrine disrupting skin care.

    After using this product for 14 days I have noticed tremendous results in terms of evening out of my skin tone including reducing dark spots. Its super easy to use, and provides a nice clean, tingly feeling after use. My face is clearer than it has ever been. I can’t wait to see the results after 30 days! Thank you for such awesome products.

    I have sensitive, acne prone skin. I struggled to find a product that cleared up my acne and didn’t aggravate my sensitive skin. The KRS Salicylic Cleanser is amazing. I’ve been using it for a little over a month and have noticed a huge difference in my skin. I was worried that it would be too harsh, but that wasn’t the case at all! Thank you for a great product, I love it!

    I use this cleanser as an acne ”spot treatment” and it helped with getting rid of the blackheads on my nose and clearing my face. I use it only once in a while since salicylic acid is a very strong ingredient, but it works. It also leaves the skin smooth and soft, not dry. I always follow with the nutritive oil cleanser and my skin feels amazing!

    I’ve used this product for about 2 months now and I am happy with the results. My skin is much more clear than it was before and it isnt dry! It was so hard to find a product that cleared up my skin without drying it out, this is it! I recommend giving the products 2 months to see results since some breakouts are already beneath the skin when you start the new products. The Kate Ryan consultants are very helpful – I told them I couldnt afford to buy everything, so they told me the two products that I should start with. Great products and Great company!

    After using KRS Salicylic Cleanser twice a day for a month, I began to notice a huge difference with my difficult skin. This cleanser doesn’t make my skin feel dry and tight like other “acne” washes do. The best part is the ingredients are simple and effective. Thank you KRS for creating a face wash that I absolutely love and can’t live without!
