This Week's Answer

Cosmedix's Clarify Salicylic Acid Foaming Cleanser is a gentle, alcohol and sulfate-free salicylic acid foaming cleanser that reveals a clearer, healthier-looking complexion by gently exfoliating sensitive and blemish-prone skin without stripping it of its natural oils.

This gentle cleanser is formulated specifically for oily, acne-prone skin that won’t leave the skin feeling stripped, dry or tight. The cleanser lathers away pore-clogging impurities with an air-light texture. This translucent, water-based foam cleanser is powered by a multi-action formula that encourages clearer-looking skin without unwanted dryness. Clarify absorbs excess oils while helping to maintain the natural oils the skin craves. With regular use, skin is left looking refreshed, clarified and more radiant-looking.

Key ingredients include: Salicylic acid to exfoliate skin for a smoother-looking complexion; aloe vera and D-panthenol to soothe the skin’s appearance; and Lactococcus ferment lysate and saccharide isomerate, probiotic-inspired ingredients to encourage healthy bacteria on the surface of the skin for protection.
