How Soothing Cleansing Gel Was Developed

We call this the story of Irene. The first challenge was to find a surfactant that has good makeup removing power but yet doesn’t trigger increased sebum / oil production on our founder, Jasmine’s skin.

After many rounds of trial, Jasmine finally found a suitable surfactant. She then added plant extracts for anti-inflammatory and hydration benefits. This is version 7 (v7) of the soothing cleansing gel.

Jasmine sent out v7 to fellow acne fighters and Irene was one of them. Her skin barrier had been severely compromised after using harsh skincare.

Within 3 days of using v7, Irene feedback that her skin cleared up and could stay matte much longer. We did a v8 with a slight reduction in extracts concentration and got everyone to test again. Every other tester, including Jasmine, was cool with v8 except Irene. Irene’s face started oiling up again and pimples returned.

From Irene’s case, Jasmine learnt that acne could be caused by skin sensitivity and decided to launch v7 of Soothing Cleansing Gel in the hopes of helping others who has sensitive skin like Irene to solve their acne problem.

How To Use

For daily cleansing, massage over wet face and rinse thoroughly with water. Avoid direct contact with eyes.

For makeup removal, massage over wet face and wipe off gel and grime with damp cotton pad. Repeat until cotton pad stays clean.

Read about the success stories of fellow acne fighters & Skinlycious users.

“No more pimples
Pimples are gone and I have smooth skin now 🙂 The Anti-Acne Solution (Now known as Glow Exfoliant) works very well. Spots flatten the next day. I’m so glad to have found Skinlycious!”

Cystic Acne Cleared
I struggled with cystic acne for many years. When I stopped my prescription medications, my acne always come back with a vengeance. When I chanced upon Jasmine’s story, it felt like she was telling my story. I decided to try the mini kit and never looked back. My acne is now gone and skin is clear. It’s been a year and my acne has not returned with continued usage of Skinlycious.

“Acne finally went away and never came back!”
My big acne got smaller the next day! My skin is soft, smooth and not dry. I have always had acne growing up, but cystic acne became very serious 5 years ago. Finally Ihad clear skin when I was 40 years old! and it never came back.

“I Gained Back my Confidence After 8 Years of Self-Consciousness”
The Skinlycious Clear Skin Essentials Kit helped me get rid of the acne that I have been struggling with for 8 years. My favorite is the Glow Exfoliant because it penetrates into my skin and removes all the dirt in the pores to help remove redness and acne scars. My acne was completely cleared after 3 months of use!

I did not open the box inside yet cause I bought extra to keep stock. Hopefully it’s the same quality as the website. But the skincare is really good for sensitive, combination and acne prone skin. Just that I have clogged pores, so need to exfoliate more than usual.

    Helps on teen acne with 1 month of use of course depending on your severity of the acne

  44. Elsdon4 (verified owner)

    My skin is sensitive and breakout easily. Followed the instructions to test Glow Exfoliant and Clarifying Serum.
    I literally can see my bumps flattening with Cl. Serum on my R side and the bumps became more inflamed with Glow Exf on my L side. After stopping Glow Exf. and using Cl.Serum, the redness and the pimples subsided.
    No wonder I couldn’t clear my acne and some pdts break me out bad. Now, I know not to use acids. I’m hopeful that Cl. Serum can help clear my acne with longer usage.

  45. Ruuben (verified owner)

    I think this was the best thing of the full set I tried. I like to dab this on each pimple. Helps to bring it down.

  62. Agnes S. (verified owner)

    Price is steep but this is by far the best cleanser I had came across. It managed to remove traces of oil from my acne prone face without leaving the face tight and dry

  63. B.B. (verified owner)

    Been using Skinlycious for a while and so far pretty okay. I started breaking out around my forehead/brows and side of my cheeks. Not sure if it’s because of the weather or not enough sleep. So am getting this as seen in one of the customers who stopped using the blemish serums to use this soothing

  64. Al L. (verified owner)

    Very good like it a lot.

  65. irishmae_luna (verified owner)

    This soothing cleansing gel really helps calm my acne after the trial kit doesn’t work for me. Skinlycious staff is very responsive on all my concerns and send me a sample of this cleanser to try. After 2-3 days my acne calms down and pimples start to dried up.

  66. yanglinxi (verified owner)

    Great cleanser for sensitive, acne prone skin. Doesn’t foam up alot but cleanses well and leaves skin feeling comfortable. Second time buying this item!

  67. Karen Ho (verified owner)

    After washing, the face feels super clean.

  68. Vanessa L. (verified owner)

  69. KY (verified owner)

    after washing with this, my face does not have the tight feeling and is less red as well. furthermore, as i have an acne prone skin, using this cleanser reduces the chances of growing new pimples! glad to have been able to use this cleanser!

  70. O.Y. (verified owner)

    Product is lovely! It works really well to cleanse you skin!

  71. Carissa (verified owner)


  72. Jeanne (verified owner)

    Good ! Love skinlycious products! Hehe thanks for the moisturizer boost sample

  73. Jeanne (verified owner)

    Paired the cleansing gel with calming cleanser and used it to double cleanse both morning and night.

    Note on the cleansing gel, it does work in removing makeup. Proof was when I tried applying micelles water thereafter to remove makeup traces and the cotton pad remains white. It feels like quality ingredient so I am willing to overlook the price. Haha. Thank you!

  74. Irene Yeoh (verified owner)

    It’s my holy grail for my daily routine. I have super oily skin with oil coming out an hour or two after washing my face previously, sensitive red patches, dry but oily skin, big pimples with pus. The new cleansing gel is like a miracle to me. I have been using so many products from expensive brands to no brands skincare products but none of it work as amazing as this. It is so gentle on my face that it’s so squeaky clean after washing my face with it and yet it does not have the tight feeling at all. I have never feel so amazed before! It’s like a mini face spa with the nice smell that comes along with which makes me truly enjoy washing my face every time. It controls the oil, my face can stand matte for hours and I would only need to blot once a day to keep it fresh till the end of the day. It reduced my face redness and I realised acne starts to decrease in size every morning. I would urge people like me to try it out. Trust me, it’s worth every single cent you spend on this, truly a match in heaven together with the hydrating serum.

    I would really like to thank Jasmine and Skinlycious from the bottom of my heart, cheers to many many years to come! 🙂

  75. Ame (verified owner)

    At first i did not know whether the new soothing cleansing gel is suitable for my skin so i requested for a mini of it.

    For a person who does not wear any makeup i use this cleansing gel as a daily cleanser.
    So far I realise not much new grown pimples which is a good thing but my skin is still oily. Probably need to try it longer to see more improvements on my skin.

    This soothing cleansing gel is little pricey. I really hope skinlycious can consider having a good bundle deal with hydrating serum & glow exfoliant for acne battlers.

    I hardly ever leave a review for any products I buy simply because I’m too lazy to do so. However, this time round I must write a review for Jasmine and her team. I have only started using skinlycious product about 1 month ago and my skin has slowly started to get better.

    Though I still get the occasional little zits, perhaps it’s because I still do not have a proper cleanser/gel to thoroughly remove the sunscreen since this soothing cleansing gel was still in the pipelines last month. I have just received it today and am excited to use it. But the main reason why I’m writing this review is that Jasmine and her team have gone over and beyond the usual customer service. Sweet!

Q1. Do I still need to use Calming Cleanser after using this?
A1.We recommend that you double cleanse in the evening. Hence, the recommendation of using this after cleansing with Soothing Cleansing Gel.

Q2. Why Is It Different From Calming Cleanser?
A2. Soothing Cleansing Gel is formulated for those who have sensitive or sensitized skin. Also, Soothing Cleansing Gel removes makeup and sunscreen whereas Calming Cleanser does not.

Q3. Can I replace Calming Cleanser with Soothing Cleansing Gel?
A3. Yes, definitely. Soothing Cleansing Gel was formulated with a customer who couldn’t use Calming Cleanser. Her skin stopped oiling up and acne cleared up after 3 days of usage.

Q4. How does your makeup remover differs from others?
A4. If you don’t already know, some cleansing waters and cleansers can cause skin to be more oily and lead to breakouts. Our cleansers have been tested on acne-prone skin to make sure that it doesn’t oil up the skin. Jasmine, our founder, went through many re-formulations and testing before finding this blend. We use a blend of sulfate-free surfactants that has gentle yet strong cleansing power that’s able to remove waterproof makeup easily. No greasy after feel. 

Q5. I don’t have sensitive skin. Can I still use it?
A5. Yes, of course. Even when you have normal skin, you don’t want to risk using a cleanser that could potentially give you breakouts.

Q6. Can I use this as sunscreen remover too?
A6. Yes. When you use sunscreen especially mineral sunscreens, you have to use a makeup remover equivalent cleanser to remove sunscreen. Double cleansing helps to prevent clogged pores, hence preventing breakouts. For a sunscreen that doesn’t break you out, we recommend to use Skinlycious Multi-Protection Mineral Sunscreen with Antioxidant.
