Cleansers are the essential part of skin care routine which makes the face canvas ready for either treatment product or for a moisturizer. this is the first step of a skin care routine and the most important one, and you have to make sure your skin is clean yet not stripped off the moisture when you cleanse it. There are numerous options in the market for oily, combination or problem skin types but to get the one right for your concern and skin type is the main struggle. I have bought and tried so many cleansers, either they are for first cleanse or second cleanse, a good cleanser is always welcome to my skin care stash. Epionce Lytic Gel Cleanser was sent to me for testing and review. I have been enjoying it since last few months as a first cleanse and sometimes as both first and second cleanse in the evenings.
Epionce Lytic Gel Cleanser (USD $36) is an invigorating cleanser and is suitable for oily and problem skin types. It is paraben-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic. It is a refreshing anti-microbial cleanser which effectively removes dirt, oil, and makeup. IT does not cause dryness or strip the skin barrier. Also, it helps clear the posed to improve symptoms of oily and acne-prone skin. The key ingredients in this cleanser are Willow bark extract, Marshmallow root extract, and Menthol. The cleanser is housed in a heavy glass bottle with a pump.
This cleanser can be used to cleanse skin prior to chemical peel or microdermabrasion. IT can also be used as a body wash to help treat acne, dermatitis, and psoriasis. It can even be used as a shampoo to help seborrheic dermatitis. This is indeed a multitasking product. I use a pump or two of this cleanser on my wet face and massage it onto my skin, it does sting a little on the eyes. Then I wash with warm water, my skin feels clean, hydrated and ready for the next step in my skincare routine. I do use a cleansing oil or balm as a first cleanse when I have a full on makeup on my face or when I am using mascara or some waterproof or long lasting makeup. Then I follow with this cleanser and then to my treatment products. This has been a nice addition to my cleansers and is very refreshing. It says it is fragrance-free but I do get a subtle lemony (acidy) smell when I use this. It does lather but not much. It does not make my existing breakouts or my skin dry.

Even for most types of dermatitis, I have used it as a shampoo once for my itchy scalp and did feel calmness on my scalp. I am definitely going to try more from this skincare line.
