how beneficial is salicylin?
I NEEEEEEED Salicylic Acid in my face washes to keep my skin clear. Is Salicylin similar? If so, what percentage would be in this face wash?
Has anybody with acne prone skin used this and seen results? I need strong acids to exfoliate my skin for me. Would this be the product for me or no?

I feel that this is best for acne-prone skin that is primarily just sensitive. For oily skin, I would go with something slightly stronger. I've had oily skin in the past and if I still did, I would not use this product (though I love it for balance on T-zone now!).

The salicilin in the cleanser is a naturally occurring kind of salicylic acid is what I was told. It has proved to be gentler on my skin than the non-natural salicylic acid products that I have used in the past, which was just what I needed since my face is super-sensitive to products with salicylic acid in them, and this line was first started for people with sensitive skin. It would be worth getting a sample of the cleasner in one of the Sephora stores that carries it, or if that is impossible, ordering it to try it out. Spehora has a great return policy if the cleanser doesn't work, but I have a feeling that it will. Everyone I have talked to that has used the REN products has been a fan.

The girl at the Sephora store told me that it is a mild form of salicilic acid. I have really enjoyed this because it doesn't strip my skin like the acids but we all have different skin. hope this is helpful

This product is great for sensitive yet acne-prone skin. Personally, I have dry patches along with acne and this product has been working wonders to help balance my face.
I think this product would work well on any oily, blemish-prone skin. You may want to try something a little stronger or even adding an exfoliating peel a couple times a week to add on to your cleansing routine. I would ask for a sample first and see how you like it! It's a best-seller at my local Sephora store and the last couple times I went in...this product was sold out.
I hope this helps.
