SKINCARE REVIEW: Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash

I recently received the Glycolic Foaming Wash from Neostrata. I have heard great things about this brand, so I was really excited to be able to test out the cleanser! Investing in skincare is one of the best things that you can do for yourself. I am a firm believer that EVERYONE should have (at the very least) a Basic Skincare Routine (Cleanser, Serum, Moisturizer). Here are my thoughts:

(Descriptions & Directions were obtained from the product packaging)

HOW TO USE: Twice a day, pump a moderate amount of foam into hands. Apply to wet skin and cover entire area. Rinse with water.


This cleanser is recommended for experienced Glycolic Acid users who are ready to kick results up a notch. Best used as part of an anti-aging regimen, NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash targets congested pores and encourages cell renewal for skin that’s prepared for optimal benefits of the regimen that follows. Once you’ve tried it—you’ll never go back to a regular face wash again. Here’s to a fresh-faced, younger-looking you!


  • Glycolic Acid
  • Lactobionic Acid

THIS IS: Soap, Fragrance and Dye free!

Glycolic acid is going to exfoliate your skin. It’s going to take the top layer off. Your skin is going to feel baby smooth. Every morning its going to glow! It’s gentle yet effective!

My Thoughts: This Foaming Wash contains 18% Glycolic Acid. I have to say, that is what drew me. Since this has Glycolic acid, this product helps boost cell turnover in the skin, which in turn, helps fade breakouts, acne scars, fine lines/wrinkles quicker! It also will help anything you put on after it, (like a serum) work better, because it will penetrate deeper into the skin. Basically, it’s going to help you see results quicker, while boosting your other skincare products… it’s a win win! I like that it’s a foam cleanser, typically tells me that it is going to last longer, and I absolutely love that it is soap free! My skin doesn’t feel tight and uncomfortable after cleansing. I have to say that I have really enjoyed using this product, and will continue to use it in the future! I do use spf 50 during the day! Which I recommend! I have been using this cleanser daily for about 3 weeks now. Having come from the skincare world, I tend to be quite picky when it comes to cleansers. I like a good, deep clean…no funny business. This cleanser blew me away. I will be repurchasing this after I am done with this bottle!

NOTE: If you are new to Glycolic Acid, I suggest trying something with a smaller amount of this ingredient. Please email/DM me on Instagram if you would like help finding the perfect cleanser for you!
