1. Calming Foam Cleanser

It can be hard to find an acne cleanser that isn't drying. Yet, this one is different. This acne wash is formulated to not only clear up blemishes but also works hard to keep skin calm and clear. It’s developed with good-for-skin ingredients like COSRX Centella AC-Rx Complex, Asiatic acid plus acne-fighting salicylic acid that does a pretty good job at gently clearing dead skin cells and excess oil. Gentle enough to use daily and perfect for all skin types, leaving the skin soft, smooth, and fresh.

2. Calming Liquid Mild

If you’re worried about a toner drying out or irritating your skin, make sure you opt for a formula that is alcohol-free. Gentle and alcohol-free, this mild liquid itself leans on the watery side and it absorbs within seconds leaving no film. This plant-based toner promises to maintain the oil-moisture balance and calms irritation. Simply saturate a cotton pad with this powerful solution and sweep it over your skin to help the skin feel hydrated, smooth, and balanced. Did I mention it's non-comedogenic, and free of fragrance, oil, silicone, and gluten?

Got a red, swollen, and painful bump? This intensive liquid is specifically formulated for troubled, acne skin. Enriched with over 60% Propolis extract and Zinc PCA to help reduce the risk of infection, relieve cystic acne and maintain the skin’s moisture balance. It also harnesses the power of BHA, AHA and plant-derived alcohol for clearer skin. And I just love how soothing and cooling it feels on the skin.
