Anthony Glycolic Facial Cleanser

We’ve long known that men’s razors are superior to women’s so it was only a matter of time before we started dabbling in male-centric skincare products as well. Anthony’s creamy cleanser was designed to give men smaller pores and clearer skin with minimal work — which is exactly why we like it too. Gentle enough to use daily, the non-foaming formula has glycolic acid to get rid of dead skin, which can lead to clogged pores, dullness, and breakouts.

Love the product, packaging is a piece of work

Wow! I was surprised by how much I love the feel if this product! It was moisturizing enough even for my dry skin. I also love how light and silky the product feels when it goes on-- I get the impression that it won't leave any buildup. I'm not crazy about the smell, but it's not as bad as many face washes out there.

The only complaint I have is that the plastic on the bottle is so rock hard that I can't squeeze it! To get any of the product out, I have to put the bottle on the corner of the sink and push down with my full hand. Perhaps I'm missing something, but I rock climb so I consider my fingers pretty strong in general. It shocked me how difficult it was to get even a small amount out of the bottle.

Everyday cleanser
Sampled

I was skeptical of Anthony for some time because I couldn't accept the higher price points, but between this and the other samples of theirs I've received, I'm bought into their brand.

I've made this one my daily cleanser. I have combination skin, so nothing extreme here. This goes on lightly, smells good (as "good" as neutral can smell I suppose...), and performs its chief duty reliably and thoroughly (i.e. when I follow it up with cotton-applied toner, there's never any visible trace of dirt or grease), which hasn't been the case with many other cleansers i've tried. Recommended.

Best cleanser for normal skin
Sampled

I've made this my go to for quite some time now, and paired with their exfoliant once a week, it's a great combo for daily use (the cleanser). it's light and clean and does the trick day in and day out.

I love this cleanser!! Cleans well and never feels dry. Moisturizers just enough but not too much. It never breaks me out.

SOOOO COMFY & LIGHTWEIGHT
Purchased

love the clean, soft feel of my skin after use. very economical. no scent to speak of. This IS my face wash, using it twice a day. My complexion is brighter - friends noticed. I will buy again for sure. I guess this plastic is designed for STRONG hands. Here's what worked for me. I took a pump device from liquid soap, washed it, cut the tube to fit bottle depth. Cap did not fit tight, so I took plumbers' tape, wrapped a few times around neck of bottle and VOILA! Works like a charm. Probably any tape except scotch tape would work. this fix has worked for 6 weeks, so far. neat and easy to use.

Effective product, smells like orange TicTacs
Sampled

This was a light cleanser and didn't leave any residue. Been using it for a week and it hasn't dried my skin out. It smells like orange TicTacs which is a pleasant smell, but I think they call it "citrus". Works great even with daily use and paired it up with Anthony Facial Moisturizer.

Cleans Well, Leaves Skin Slightly Dry
Sampled

Though my face feels refreshed and clean following application of this facial cleanser, it did tend to leave me feeling slightly dried out.
