Vitamin C Ester: Supercharged Brightening & Smoothing

A more potent, highly stable and less irritating form of antioxidant-rich Vitamin C, Vitamin C Ester gives the appearance of collagen-rich skin by visibly smoothing, brightening and minimizing discoloration over time. Unlike traditional Vitamin C, Vitamin C Ester is fat-soluble and easily absorbable for maximum antioxidant benefits.

Rosemary Leaf Extract: The Herbal Firmer

A powerful, natural antioxidant helps tighten the appearance of skin over time, is highly absorbable and has been valued for centuries for its skin-toning abilities.

Squalane: Hydrate & Nourish

Found naturally in the human body and derived from olive oil, squalane hydrates and helps visibly reduce fine lines and discoloration over time. It effectively absorbs into skin to deliver superior hydration and nourish surface cells.

I would like to start using this product. I am currently using the intensive pore treatment and love it! Can I use this facial wash to remove my makeup? Also can you recommend a product that will help with old acne scars? Thanks!


Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. The Citrus Facial Wash is a wonderful cleanser and yes it does remove makeup. I recommend the Formula 15, this treatment will correct skin's surface imperfections and reveal more even, youthful skin. I hope this is helpful.

I am oily with blackheads on my nose and occasional whiteheads. I really don't know what to use.


Thank you for contacting Perricone MD. We do not have an acne line; however, based on your skin concerns I recommend the Enlarged Pores Prescription kit, which is available on our website: www.perriconemd.com This kit consists of the following products: Citrus Facial Wash - This non-drying facial wash removes impurities, debris and makeup and helps prevent the appearance of redness and blotchiness, sometimes associated with the use of harsh cleansers. Suitable for all skin types, though especially recommended for combination skin. Intensive Pore Minimizer - Intensive Pore Minimizer treats the causes of pores by performing three modes of action. One, gently exfoliating the skin of build-up, two, firming the appearance of sagging pore walls and three, controlling the oil production that leads to shine and the appearance of blemishes. Intensive Pore Treatment - Designed with a patented, state-of-the-art science, Intensive Pore Treatment takes a unique approach by tackling the causes of pores, rather than masking the symptoms and further aggravating the problem. Non-clogging or filling, oil free and silicone free, this treatment is proven effective and delivers superior results. I hope this is helpful.

Is this a foamy or creamy cleanser? I prefer foamy and as a first time user I don't want to spend money on something I wouldn't like.


Thank you for your interest in Dr. Perricone'S products. The Citrus Facial Wash is a foamy gel cleanser; very deep cleansing and excellent with removing makeup; it's also very good for enlarged pores. I hope this is helpful.

Do you recommend using this cleanser with the Clarisonic. They have different brush heads. I typically use the deep pore brush head. I am concerned that it could be too harsh on my skin, is that possible? I am not experiencing any problems, but neither do I want to contribute to any new ones. Thank you!


The Citrus Facial wash is non-drying , refreshing cleanser. It doesn't strip the skin of its natural oils, so you should be fine to use with your Clarisonic!

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

I am confused about which cleanser to use. I am 56 with combination/oily skin. I have had acne and very problematic skin from my early teens until only a couple of years ago and it started to settle down. I do still have oily skin and very large pores from problem skin years. When I took the skin quiz it said I should use the Nutritive Cleanser. When I look at pore minimizing it shows that I should use the Citrus Facial Wash. I really want pore minimizing and oil reduction (especially in the Summer months). When the weather cools down i won't have the major oil problem I do now. I really want to find a product/s that makes a difference and makes me not hate my skin.


Great Question-The Citrus Facial Wash is just what you need ! It works really well with your areas of concern . It is non- drying and will leave your skin refreshed!

Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

can citrus wash be used to remove eye makeup?


The Citrus Facial Wash can be used to cleanse and remove makeup. If you prefer a more Gentle Cleanser for removing your eye makeup you may use the Hypoallergenic Gentle Cleanser.

My skin looks clean and healthier than it has with other cleansers.




I prefer this cleanser to the nutritive cleanser.


This is my 'go to" PM cleanser. It deep cleans for a radiant complexion.

Mild! Pleasant! Effective! Works well on combination skin!


Works well as a daily cleanser! Cleans effectively as an all over cleanser! I am trying to clean and minimize my pores in my oily zone and I find this prepares for using the Intensive Pore Treatment. I follow this with the Haylo Plasma Moisturizer!




I have used this cleanser for many many years.


I use this cleanser alternating with the Gentle Cleanser every other day.

Bonita Springs Florida(do you need exact



I LOVE Perricone products but I usually have to wait until they're on sale. Sometimes I splurge , I'm a guy and friends would make so much fun of me that I'd probably have to go into hiding, just kidding. My favorite is the cold plasma face cream. If you have a chance to procure any Perricone products, I insist or suggest is a better word. PROCURE PROCURE PROCURE. You won't be disappointed, I'm 64 but since using Perricone products everyone tells me that I look like in in my early 50's. I'll TAKE it.

I love this product!


I've only been using it for a couple of weeks and have a noticeable difference in the texture and suppleness of the skin on my face!

Mixed review


May be a great product for someone of a different age and skin type.

It's just ok...


I'm not sure I'm a fan or not. I like the brand, so I might just need a different kind of facial wash. I feel like it does clean my face (removing almost all the makeup), but I feel like I have to use more (3 pumps) per cleansing to get the results I want and need. I've used other brand cleansers that cost less and clean better. Because of that, I'm only giving this 3-stars.
