"Clear Complexion Cleanser"
From product name
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (disodium cocoyl glutamate, methyl gluceth-10, polysorbate 20, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium cocoyl glycinate, sodium lauroyl glutamate) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.

"Formulated with skin-clearing Willow Bark Extract, a natural salycylic acid, this cleansing gel gently and effectively exfoliates to unclog, purify pores and minimize blemishes without irritation."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
