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.

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?

Best Answer: 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.

Can women use it to wash faces?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2015
Best Answer: I think a woman could use this product. Generally most men and women's products are pretty interchangeable. My only suggestion is to try a little bit first on the back of your hand and make sure you do not react to the ingredients.

For best results, how often should you use this? Like once a day, or possibly twice daily (Morning and afternoon)?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2014
Best Answer: 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.

Anyone switch from Facial Fuel? I'm curious how it stacks up. I'm new to Kiehl's and am using the Blue stuff at night and picked this up for my morning use. I Think I'll try Facial Fuel when I run out. Just curious what people think who have used both for a time. Thanks!
A shopper on Feb 24, 2015
Best Answer: I use both! I don't stick to one product I use facial fuel and oil eliminator!

Anyone use this with a clairsonic? If so how are the results? Are the beads causing too much irritation. My skin is prone to acne and sensitive.
Joshua D on Aug 23, 2014
Best Answer: I bought this for my son and he love it , but he is not using with clairsonic. You should try one time and see the result.
