"This multitasker can prep skin for makeup or worn alone for a radiant complexion."
WIMJ summary

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (carbomer, diisostearyl malate, isohexadecane, polysorbate 60, polysorbate 80, sorbitan isostearate, xanthan gum) 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.
