What does the product description say?
"Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel"
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 (diethylhexyl sodium sulfosuccinate, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, glyceryl caprylate, potassium cocoate, potassium cocoyl glycinate) 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.

"As for its blemish-busting capabilities, it's laced with gluconolactone (a naturally occurring poly hydroxy acid that exfoliates without sensitising the skin) and anti-inflammatory tea tree to clear your pores and prevent pesky breakouts."
WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (gluconolactone) that could help reduce blemishes and clogged pores in theory, but there is not enough evidence that they actually work.

WIMJ summary

This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: gluconolactone.
