Before starting Skinn Cosmetics, I worked for twenty years with the largest cosmetic houses in the world. I found myself constantly frustrated with the way they did business. Unfortunately, the big cosmetic companies never seem to care about making quality products that actually help the consumer. Their "formula" was always the same: make a cheap product, put it in a fancy jar with a nice box and charge as much as possible. After learning that I was never going to change how those big companies do business from within, I realized I needed to change the nature of the very industry in which they operate.
When I launched Skinn in 2002 the question most asked was "How are you going to do it Dimitri? How are you going to give us more products, better products, and keep them at a comparable price?" The answer was really quite simple. After working at the highest levels of the big cosmetics houses, I learned that the money they spend does not go into the product. In fact, it seems to go everywhere but the product: ad campaigns, department store counter space, Park Avenue offices, and, most of all, packaging. Believe it or not, most companies spend more money on the container and fancy boxes than on the product that's inside. I used to sit in meetings in those Park Avenue offices to talk about how to improve the company's products. Those meetings always seem to end the same: "Let's change the packaging." Upgrading the product was always deemed too costly as it would require re-educating the consumer about what constitutes a quality product. In essence the secret would be out that water does not have to be the first ingredient in every product.
Skinn offers its products only through televised home shopping, the internet and exclusive, privately owned spas throughout North America. This has allowed us to reach the maximum amount of people, while keeping overhead very low. We don't have expensive retail shops or New York office suites; you won't see costly magazine or prime time TV ads. What we do have are some of the finest cosmetics ever made. You'll see the difference!

This cleanser is very interesting! I have never used anything like it.It has a little thickish and spongey texture.When I smooth and massage it over pores around my nose, it kinda curdles, and you see it separating and "sticking" to the pores.I make sure my face is warm to hot by pressing a hot facecloth over it and I also have washed my face beforehand with another Skinn cleanser.After rinsing, my pores are really smaller.This lotion is not harsh and not perfumey and I am so glad to have this!Dimitri is right when he says that his cleansers are the best no matter what cosmetic line you use!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First time I used this my skin wasn't quite wet enough and couldn't see any results. Read instructions again and with wetter skin it worked miracles. As I massaged it over my face and forehead I could actually feel little tiny pebble like particles and when I washed it off my skin just glowed. The smell does not bother me but the taste when I do around my mouth is not so great.I love it!
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I just love this cleaner it works very well. I ordered 4 and I put one in the shower. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and I'm still amazed. No more black heads, especially great after a day of gardening. Thanks Dimitry.It does not dry up your skin either.
works well, but STINKS
from NORTH YORK
I have always had a problem with black heads on my nose, no matter what I tried or did. This was the first product that made a difference to my nose.I was happy with the results ..... BUT boy oh boy does it STINK.Get rid of the stink and I would buy it again, but not the way it smells now.It works, but not worth the cost of the smell!If you are not sensitive to smells then I would recommend it to people with blackhead problems, but if you have migraines, asthma or other conditions that make you sensitive to smells, do not buy it.

It works but . . .
I bought the sonic cleanser brush and this product came with it. At first I didn't think it worked but I had missed one important detail: the skin must be wet before applying the product. The water activates it. Once I started using it correctly it cleaned the pores on my nose beautifully.

This is a serious cleanser.
I don't have black heads but I do get the occasional hormonal acne, and that pimple that gets started from a fat roll on the neck,,ya...I'm at that stage. This cleanser,for me,really cleanse out my pores and in a matter of a day or two, my skin is completely clear and my pores reduced.And not that it was intentional but while your cleansing your face if a little runs in your mouth, it has a nice sweet marshmellowy taste. (remember not intentionally)I really have no negative comments, for me this product works wonderfully even as a once aweek cleansing boost.
