What it is

Oily, Combination, Pigmentation & Acne Skin

This lightweight gel cleanser contains AHA, vitamin B5, and soy protein as the first step in combating the signs of aging.

Its light, effective consistency gently but efficiently removes makeup and impurities, while it deeply cleanses, removes dead skin cells, tightens pores, and minimizes breakouts.

The Active Cleanser further provides gentle exfoliation to leave skin renewed, energized, and hydrated.


  • Exfoliates and removes dead cells with highly effective, yet gentle ingredients.
  • Soothes and calms your skin as it cleanses.
  • Minimizes breakouts and helps prepare skin for further skin care treatment.
* The unique scent of each product is naturally occurring by the original ingredients in the formula. The MDSUN skincare line guarantees that no allergenic artificial and synthetic fragrances are added.

  1. I’ve been using the Active Cleanser, Active Toner and Brightening Serum and months prior I was struggling with stubborn acne scars from a lot of stress. Since then I have been using MDSUN products and my skin and the scarring has cleared immensely. My skin feels so much more plump, hydrated and it didn’t irritate my skin because I find not all products work for me. But this really calmed my skin down and I feel like it even lessens the look of my pores. I’m definitely going to be a returning customer. I’m really happy with the products!

  2. MDSUN Skin Care products are outstanding. I have used them for years. I highly recommend MDSUN products and I know that you will not disappoint. They will prove to you how much you’ll love the skin care for keeping your skin brilliant, young, clean ,soft, moist. My son also uses the products for his pimple and has amazing results!

  3. Effective, Reliable Ingredients
    December 28, 2018
    Verified Purchase

    I have so much respect for MDSUN’s approach because they think about what ingredients will truly be effective within their products. Many products on the market focus primarily on what will “feel” effective for the consumer (i.e. silky, smooth, lathering, etc.) but they leave out the powerful ingredients that are a true investment for our skin’s future.

    The Active Cleanser includes some of the most tried-and-true ingredients such as glycolic, mandelic, and lactic acids, chemical exfoliants which help to smooth the skin over time and increase the skin’s hydration. Vitamin B5 also helps to protect and hydrate the skin. I also like that the cleanser can be used as a make up remover if applied to the face without water.

    In summary: I’m definitely a fan of this cleanser and of the brand as a whole. Great ingredients for a great price and I look forward to trying more of MDSUN’s products!
