It’s awesome!

My skin feels tight and smooth after washing it with the kitava acne wash. I also enjoy the scent! My acne has not flared like it usually does. It works!

I love the face wash!

My face feels so much cleaner after washing my face and it doesn’t dry my skin out at all. I just pair with some rose hip oil and it’s been my favorite night routine.


Great for daily use

I use this product daily with my spin brush - decided to stop using my Mary Kay clear proof and switched to this. Has not caused irritation, not too drying when paired with a moisturizer and keeps my mask- acne at bay!


Very Foamy Cleanser-Non Drying

My Wife has been using this to help reduce the occasional adult breakout. It is a very foamy cleanser and a little bit goes a long way. Even with the salicylic 1%, it is non drying and smells like tea tree. She likes using it after taking her mask off, since it has helped reduce her "maskne"- blemish along the lines where your mask touch your face. Highly recommend.



Gentle on my skin and scent is nice. Helps with acne prone skin.
