I'm 18 and i have blackheads all over my face and my question is " Will the Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser get rid of my blackheads? "
tamika w on Apr 8, 2012
Hello,
I need help finding a moisturizer, without sunscreen, for my teen son, 14 years old. He has normal to dry skin with an occasional breakout. Mostly a few blackheads in the T zone area.
He does a good job of washing his face. Uses deep pore cleanser and cross training sunscreen.
I just ordered him lip balm and eye cream (dark circles hereditary).
Please help me decide on a moisturizer for him that won't be too strong or too heavy. I'm hoping that he will add moisturizing into his routine in am and pm. I have tried with other products I have but he complains about the smells. I assume this is because those products are more for women?? Maybe a men's product, smell wouldn't bother him??
Thank you, I appreciate you taking time to help me with this ;)

Can this cleanser be used with a Clarisonic skin brush?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2012
Best Answer: I have not used the Clarisonic skin brush but based on what I know about it, as well as my extensive experience with Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser, I believe this product can be used with the skin brush if desired. The Cleanser is a good consistency, i.e., not too grainy, that should work well with the skin brush.

What would be a good Kiehl product for combination oily skin with a mild form of rosecea?
Joe S on Mar 31, 2012
Best Answer: I think their Ultra Facial Cleanser would be best for your skin type (similar to mine). It's so great at removing excess oil but not irritating sensitive skin. If you are wanting some additional exfoliation, just use a washcloth when removing the Ultra Facial Cleanser.

Is this product good for acne prone skin ? I have very oily skin with blemishes
A shopper on Jul 10, 2012
Best Answer: I love this product. I have very oily skin. Before discovering the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleanser - I could wash my face and within at least 1- 2 hours it was oily again. With the Rare Earth, my skin feels to be more balanced - not too dry and not too oily - for a much longer period of the day. It definitely helps to control the oil, so that should help with acne prone skin. Hope this helps

Best Answer: Try Proactiv for a few months first. In most cases, I've found reducing acne to be simply a matter of a proper cleansing routine that includes a good cleanser, toner AND acne lotion. The combination Proactiv offers is more affordable than Kiehl's, as each of these products needs to be purchased individually. When purchased separately, the products do not effectively treat acne.

However, I did find that once I got my acne under control and needed a more refined product just to treat the oily areas of my skin, the Rare Earth collection did the job very nicely. The Rare Earth Daily Cleanser works great on the oily areas, but tends to dry out the non-oily areas, so I'd recommend using it less frequently once the oily areas once they are less of a problem.

Is this product oil free ? and is it good for oily acne prone skin ?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2012
Best Answer: I cannot speak to the ingredients used, but it appears to be oil free. I have fairly oily skin and this was the product that was recommended to me during a visit to the store. I've been using this wash for about 2 years now and have seen dramatic differences in my skin. It's less oily and I rarely have any breakouts. I also use the rare earth toner and moisturizer. Love all 3 products!

Does it remove black heads?
A shopper on Dec 22, 2013
Best Answer: I don't have many blackheads, but I do think it helps with the ones I have. I also think it helps with your pores in general. It is a little drying for my skin, so I tend to use this when I wash my face after a workout to get a deep clean!

Is this product good for dry skin?
venesse k on Jul 25, 2013
Best Answer: Although not particularly astringent, this is a clay-based cleanser. If foams up a bit and has a fine grit to it. I wouldn't recommend it, generally, for dry skin as a daily cleanser. I have combination skin, which tends to be dry in the cold winters, and I use this in summer months or when I need a light exfoliant in the winter. It's very good at clearing breakouts as well, but depending on the season, I'll only switch to it briefly, and follow with a moisturizer.

The product is great on my skin and I like it but I wouldn't characterize my skin as "dry".

Can I use Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser during prenancy?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2013
Best Answer: Depends on your skin type, I have combination, sensitive skin so I used it every other day because I didn't want any adverse reactions if I were to use it everyday. If you're not sensitive then I think using it everyday is fine, the texture of the cleanser is like a mixture of foam/cream not like your typical scrub cleansers so it's not harsh for everyday use. Hope this helps.

Are these products perfume and fragrance free?
Colleen C on May 6, 2013
Best Answer: Yes, Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser is perfume/fragrance free. I love this product. I've been using it for well over one year now. I have sensitive skin (Rosacea) but it is also oily and I have large pores. This product is gentle enough to use once a day without any irritation and it does exfoliate. I'm sure you can use it twice a day too, I just have other routines in the evening for cleansing my face. You only need a tiny little pea size dollop of this product (I don't use it on the eye area) and it cleans my face very thoroughly. Never feels dry either.

I use calendula series cleanser but will this one cause acne while it is diminishing the pores?
A shopper on May 28, 2017
Best Answer: The Rare Earth cleanser is wonderful. I am a big fan of products with 'clay' or 'earth'. This Khiels cleanser in particular does magic drawing out impurities from pores without drying out the skin. I recommend trying the Rare Earth toner as well. It's really amazing how the minerals draw out dirt from pores and then tighten them without drying the skin. I feel like the earth ingredients exercise the skin to stay clean healthy vibrant and supple.

It depends on your skin but I think their cleansers are not as powerful. I also use the calendula toner, if you live in a dry place you need to use a more moisturizer toner or facial cream

Nathalie P on Jul 15, 2016
Best Answer: It can be used as a scrub, but I think it would be too sutil because the grains are very fine... If you have REALLY sensitive skin then that can maybe work, but I still prefer using Kiehl's Epidermal Retexturizing Micro Dermabrasion as a scrub and then alternating the Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser with another cleanser.

Neidra W on May 2, 2015
Best Answer: As long as I have been using this cleanser, personally I like to leave the thin layer of this cleanser on my face for few minutes before rinsing out well in order to have the clay to extract impurities within the face.
Would you like to try leaving awhile longer and rinsing really well afterward? Hope this will assist. Much light
