    To keep your skin strong and resilient, you must prevent the break down or removal of your skin's lipid barrier (as happens when you use regular cleansers). Unfortunately general/regular cleansers are mostly detergent based. Acne cleansers mostly consist of exceptionally harsh detergents and astringents. Neither of these types of detergent cleansers may be used on sensitive skin.

    This sensitive skin cleanser contains soothing sea whip and licorice. It uses gentle yucca and glycerin cleansing agents.

    The plant based Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser is gentle yet thorough. When used as directed, it will help lift dirt and debris from the skin without stripping your skin's all-important lipid barrier (aka your natural moisturizer (also called 'oil')).

    Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser will also gently remove makeup (see 'How to Use').

    It does not foam or have any of the tricks associated with all commercial detergent cleansers out there.

    After about 15 - 30 seconds it will feel less 'fluid' on your skin.

    Add a little more water to fingers. 

    Repeat these steps over 1 - 2 minutes until the cleanser has been significantly lifted by the small additions of water over a 1 to 2 minute period. 

    You will know you have reached this point when you get the distinct tactile feeling of the skin of your fingers on the skin of your face - meaning there is no cleanser product separating them.

    Remove all residue of the sensitive cleanser by splashing the face with cool water.

    Your skin will feel soft, moist, and clean. There will be no unnatural 'squeaky-clean' feeling nor a sense of dryness on the vast majority of skin types. 

    Pat the skin dry with a clean soft towel and marvel at the great feeling.


    It is important not to over cleanse the skin - only once a day (in the PM) is all your skin needs - unless you are a teenage type 4 acne sufferer who needs to cleanse twice per day - but the vast majority of people will just unbalance their skin by cleansing more than once per day.


    To remove makeup like foundation, use more cleanser - you will have to try different amounts based on the type and quantity of makeup you apply to your face.


    To remove eye makeup, apply cleanser to some cotton and wipe over eye area. Repeat if needed depending on the type and quantity of eye make up you applied. Do not rub harshly - just use a bit more cleanser. Be gentle with your skin - it does not deserve harsh treatment - after all you put the makeup on the skin - it's not your skin's fault - so be gentle with it!

    5 star yelp review

    I've been using the Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser since December 2013. The cleanser works differently than anything else I'd ever used before and it was really a big adjustment switching over but I'm so glad I did. I'd used various drug store brand cleansers for a long time and the main difference with this cleanser is it doesn't "foam" or "lather" like typical cleansers do. For the first few weeks I didn't feel like I was really getting that "clean" that other brands promised because I was so used to my skin being stripped of all oils on my face after washing. Since using Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser my face never feels tight and dry and I don't need to use face lotion every day, multiple times a day as I once did because my skin is retaining those oils that it needs to stay soft and not dried out. While pricier than most cleansers at the drug store, the bottle does last a while. I've gone through two bottles in 8 months. Also takes off make-up well!

    I have been using Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser for 9 months now and it's made my skin the most even it has ever been. Before Andrew and this cleanser, I was using the detergent-based Cetaphil, which caused considerable dryness on my cheeks.

    The Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser has smoothed out my skin tone, and the way Andrew directs to apply it (rub onto dry face, then use a dab of water to re-wet until dry again) has made me much more thorough and conscious of how I cleanse my face.

    The effectiveness and gentleness of this cleanser is awesome, and I can't wait to try Andrew's new oil-based cleanser as well!

    I have been using Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser for about a year and a half and my skin looks better that it has ever been and I haven't had a single breakout. Prior to that, I had used a variety of cleansers.

    Some estheticians in the past had asked me to use harsh scrubs, others suggested more mild options, like Cetaphil, but nothing worked or the list of products were so overwhelming that I gave up on the routines.

    Now I just use Extreme + Sensitive and an AHA cream (also sold by Blue Turtle). I can't recommend Andrew's products enough. They are simple, affordable, and effective. My skin is stable and looks better than it has in a long time and I don't even get facials anymore!

    I have been using the Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser for 1-1/2 years now and cannot live without it. I find it a pleasure to use, it makes my skin feels great and so clean without being harsh. My fine fair, red skin has improved it's tone and condition over the time I've been using it and it does a good job of removing all of the things I've applied to my face over the course of the day.

    I am reviewing the SSC Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser. I have been using this cleanser for a year now. My skin went from breaking out constantly, before seeing Andrew and using this cleanser, to very rarely breaking out.

    Before Andrew, I was going through an array of products trying to find something that worked to make the breakouts stop.

    Now I have found it. Andrew has me on such a simple routine using the SSC Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser with a lotion and TIZO Sunscreen and I couldn't be happier! Thank you!

    Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser is AMAZING!
    I've seen numerous dermatologists, tried countless products and been endlessly disappointed by my rosacea-prone highly sensitive skin until trying the Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser. This product cleared up inflammations and adult acne that dermatologists had been unable to solve despite numerous attempts. I cannot recommend this product highly enough -- it honestly has been life changing for me.

    Thank you Andrew!
    I found Andrew Scoular skincare videos on YouTube one night, as I was searching for a skincare miracle. On October 19, 2012 I sent an email to Andrew, asking if he offered samples of recommended skincare product that would work on EXTREMELY sensitive skin. I have had a Rosacea-Cystic Acne battle all my adult life. At age 58, my outer skin layer was just about 'gone' from the usage of medical and harsh over the counter products. The quick response I received from him was nothing short of amazing. Andrew did not only offer great skincare products & samples, but went much further than I would ever have expected, especially from a long distance contact. Andrew was eager to share his skincare wisdom, which helped me understand that using harsh products was actually making my skin issues worse. I was so blown away with his friendly, caring nature. He sent me generous samples of a gentle skincare cleanser he was creating. Andrew’s Sensitive Skin Clinic Extreme + Sensitive Cleanser was just what I needed to heal & recreate my facial skin. I have never seen it look & feel so healthy in all my life. This product is absolutely incredible. A visit to San Francisco, Blue Turtle Spa, & thanking Andrew in person is going on my “bucket list”. Andrew, you are a miracle angel via YouTube, Yahoo email, & God bless you and your new skincare line.
