Rapid Response Detox Cleanser by Renée Rouleau is formulated with a gentle yet powerful blend of antibacterial and oil-minimizing ingredients. This cleanser targets breakouts in their early stages, whether they are caused by hormonal imbalances, pollution, stress or any other occurrence. Unlike most acne-fighting cleansers, this one won't dry out your skin. The result? Skin will be reset and perfectly balanced, and blemishes and oil activity will be decreased.
For maximum results, leave this cleanser on the skin for up to five minutes. The longer a product with antimicrobial ingredients is left on the skin, the more pronounced the effects will be.
Pair with Rapid Response Detox Toner for even more acne-fighting benefits. You can also take this to the next level and add the Rapid Response Detox Masque, the product that started the whole line. The Rapid Response Detox Masque is very effective for preventing the appearance of all types breakouts, including cysts, pustules, papules, and monthly hormonal blemishes. All three are included in our Rapid Response Detox Kit.
Size: 6 fl oz

Feel / Smell / Look
A hybrid between a cleansing lotion and cleansing gel. Yellow in color with a minty, tea tree scent.

- Tea Tree Oil - Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil - eliminates surface bacteria within five minutes of application to discourage the formation of blemishes.
- Tea Tree Oil - Leptospermum Scoparium (Manuka) Branch/Leaf Oil - reduces microbial activity on the skin’s surface to minimize breakouts.
- Glycerin - moisture-binding humectant that prevents flaking and allows skin to remain hydrated and moist for its proper function.
- Lactic Acid - alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that provides a gentle exfoliation to break down dead cells that can lead to clogged pores.

This product really helped me through my acne journey. I started using it in December 2023 and my skin started seeing a transformation by month 3 around April. I stopped having new breakouts and what I already had started clearing. I started using this with azelaic acid prescribed around the same time as well. So the combination must have helped. I will say give it a shot especially if you have these tiny closed comodones like I did. I’m adding this to my cleansing line up for ever. Here is a before and after pictures of my results

Hi there. I received my product yesterday and was disappointed to see that it was leaking from the bottle, the top of the box was squashed, and the pump seems to not work all that well. It's making a mess when I try to get a pump or two out to wash my face. I was really excited to get this and try it after reading the reviews, but now I am not that excited.Renée Rouleau Skin Care3 months ago
