"What's Included Acne Clearing Wash (57 ml / 2 fl oz)."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (ceteareth-20, cocamidopropyl betaine, glyceryl stearate, hexylene glycol, laureth-7, lauryl glucoside, myristic acid, peg-120 methyl glucose dioleate, peg-150 pentaerythrityl tetrastearate, peg-40 hydrogenated castor oil, peg-6 caprylic/capric glycerides, polysorbate 60, polysorbate 80, sodium laureth sulfate, triethanolamine) 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.

Even though this formulation is mild, the following cleansing agents could trigger an irritation or allergy for some people: cocamidopropyl betaine, sodium laureth sulfate

What does the product description say?
"Max Complexion Correction Pads exfoliate and clear acne."
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.
