What It Does

Clean skin means good skin, especially when your cleanser targets the concerns you deal with most: clogged pores, roughness and irritation or bumps after shaving.

This quick-fix daily facial cleanser kicks all that to the curb and sets your skin up for success – no questions asked.

How to Use

Wet your skin and apply 1-2 pumps to your face and neck but watch out for the eyes.

Rub it all over and focus on areas that are stressing you out like clogged pores, ingrowns and razor bumps.

Rinse it off, towel dry and move it along to Step 2: Brightening Serum.

Keeps you calm and balanced to avoid that dry, tight feeling.


Invigorates and wakes up the skin like your favorite cup of joe.

What's in it that makes it exfoliating? I don't feel a scrub.

There are a couple different kinds of exfoliation: physical (which is your traditional scrub) and chemical (which can be acids, enzymes etc. that dissolve vs. buff). We use the latter which covers a larger surface area and causes way less irritation.

Is this good for razor bumps and ingrown hairs?

It's amazing for them. The exfoliating acids are going to help address them while ingredients like caffeine, glycerin and amino acids help skin bounce back to where it used to be.

Can I use it if I have a beard?

Yes! Exfoliation is key in helping prevent additional ingrowns and breakouts caused by the excess oil in the hair of your beard. Plus there's some nice ingredients in there to keep it looking fresh and clean.

What type of skin is this for?

ELVY Lab is great for all skin types. Our Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is especially great for someone who's dealing with razor bumps, ingrowns, skin roughness or even excess oiliness or zits.

Is a tingling feeling normal?

Totally normal if you're new to acid exfoliators - it lets you know it's dissolving all the buildup and gunk. As skin gets more used to them, the tingling will fade but the results won't!

Perfect for sensitive skin

I thought this exfoliator made my skin more dry but turns out okay. I love the citrusy scent and the texture. I love the result after using this because I feel so fresh and clean. My dad uses it also and he has razor bumps. It's getting better after using this cleanser.

good for blackheads

I have seen a reduction in my blackheads especially on my nose. its usuallyy more oily but this cleanser helps reduce the grease and I use it in the shower so my nose feels smooth after each use. I recommend!


Cleans so well

The Perfect Cleanser for Men

This cleanser has helped me tackle my oil prone skin. It's even helped with texture. Men's skin tends to be thicker, and this product has the right ingredients to really help clean my skin. I can't believe how different my skin looks after a couple of weeks of using this!

Better than Brickell

Started using this a month ago as a replacement to Brickell and wow my skin feels and looks 1000 times better. Great product and love the 4 way system!
