    Why is this beginner friendly?

    • 0.5% Salicylic acid: Effectively cleanses the skin without causing irritation or redness.
    • Moisturizing: 1% Niacinamide reduces redness and moisturizes the skin.

    How Does it Work on the Skin?

    • 0.5% Salicylic acid is a lipophilic acid that can easily penetrate through the skin and unclog the pores. This helps to control oil, clear pores off of excess sebum, dirt & dead cells and exfoliate the top layer of the skin revealing softer, more even skin and hence improving skin texture.
    • 1% Niacinamide improves skin’s texture, controls oils, restores skin barrier, and also moisturizes skin.

    How to use?

    • Dampen your face.
    • Take a small amount of salicylic acid face wash, and massage onto your skin for 30-60 seconds.
    • Rinse with water and pat dry.
    • Use daily, morning and evening.

    using this the first time felt like it was perhaps too harsh for me but i thought maybe it's still too early to judge? on second try, the skin around my nose became red, around my chin starting to burn and my eyes started stinging. I'm not sure if i want give it more tries. i bought it because skin is very oily but it's also sensitive and it seems this product may not be suitable for it.
