Balancing Cleanser

Powerful cleanser for oily skin
$35.90 USD $28.90 USD (save 19%)

For extra cleansing power, Balancing Cleanser combines an AHA and a BHA while continuing to remain gentle. 2% Glycolic acid works on the surface to exfoliate while 2% salicylic acid goes deeper into the pores to dissolve dead skin cells and break down sebum.

Balancing Cleanser is for you if:

  • You have oily, acne-prone skin. You want a cleanser specially formulated to break down sebum
  • You want a thorough cleanse that is still gentle on skin
  • You want a cleanser that can even give you a gentle peel


    Supports your acne-fighting routine

    Most acne face washes are formulated with either a single AHA or BHA. Balancing Cleanser is formulated with BOTH glycolic acid (an AHA) and salicylic acid (a BHA) to help break down sebum and make skin less acne-prone.

    Tough on oil but gentle on skin

    With soothing plant extracts to balance out the acids, you get a thorough cleanse that does not irritate or overly dry out your skin.

    Also a weekly face mask

    This cleanser is strong enough to give you a gentle peel. One evening a week, you can leave Balancing Cleanser on for 30 minutes to reveal instantly brighter and fresher skin.

    Works really well! Enjoy using this face wash, never stings or dries out my acne prone skin !

    Ashlee Matthews

    Absolutely love these products. I would be lost without them now. I struggled with acne for over 5 years now, seen doctors, had medication, seen dermatologist, tried so many different techniques and no results. I seen major changes after two weeks of using the cleanser and clear out and after 3 months I bought the entire range and my skin is incredible. I finally don't feel the need to wear make up!! It's a relief not dreading to look at mirror anymore. I could not be more thankful. The photos are a 5 month comparison


    Love that it contains AHA and BHA. Cleanses good but doesnt dry out my skin

    Love this stuff. Great for your oily skin.


    Love, very gentle but my skin feels clean and not right afterwards. I use morning and night and have had no issues with dryness, skin feels soft afterwards. Definitely recommend.


    Great facewash. Love that it only takes one pump. Love the clean smell.

    Balancing Cleanser does my skin care routine wonders. I actually do still use another cleanser with salicylic acid to wash the majority of my make up off, but then I use Balancing cleanser to work its magic and it is still working well for me. Im realising that I will still get break outs, but that sticking with the regime from Clearly Basics is doing my skin a lot of favours and that the more time I use it, the better my skin gets.

    Extremely gentle on face and do not strip the skin. I would highly recommend this. It goes well with rest of the clearly basics products.
