Micronized Apricot Seed and Argan Shells

Exfoliating ingredients that loosen flaky buildup and sloughs away dead skin cells on the surface of scalp.


Salicylic Acid

Works by softening the intracellular cement and decreasing cell-to-cell adhesion, encouraging the shedding of cells in the stratum corneum layer of the skin. It is effective on acne, as it encourages the peeling of the top layer of skin and the opening of plugged follicles.

Kiehl's Since 1851 Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Cedic C: I have oily skin and large pores Sep 30, 2014
Jonathan Ben P: I tried this for almost 3 weeks and did not work. It left your skin smooth and clean but doesn't do anything to prevent skin from getting oily, and it also irritates skin even if I used less than recommended. for those who do not know Kiehl's doesn't pay for returns even if the product is not helping you!. You will have to pay for return out of your own packet. Sep 29, 2014

Munkustrap178 asked: Other than being oil free, how is this different from the Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub? Also, if exfoliants are only to be used a few times a week, why isn't there a non-exfoliating cleanser with this line? Apr 22, 2014

Brandon M: The exfoliant aspect of this is extremely gently and not overpowering, you can definitely use it every day. I use a Clarisonic and they recommend not using beaded or grain cleansers with it, but this doesn't even bother me at all and I have sensitive skin.

At first I was apprehensive, but I'm really happy and the small exfoliant is not aggressive at all.

FRED E: I think this depends upon how oily your skin is. I don't use more than once per day. It does a pretty good job. I switch off between this and the facial fuel face wash which I honestly like more because of the smell and menthol with caffeine. Both are great products. Hope this helps. Jul 26, 2014
