HoliFrog Shasta AHA Acid Wash (5 fl. oz.)

A gentle, yet exfoliating face wash to brighten skin.

Wash the glow back in with Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash from HoliFrog. With a blend of smoothing and brightening acids, the product works to penetrate your skin while you wash, gently cleansing to unclog pores, smooth rough texture, remove pimples and boost the overall appearance of the skin. Soothing, non-fragrant botanicals reduce irritation and keep skin hydrated, avoiding further inflammation.

Key Ingredients:

  • Glycolic: the most researched type of alpha hydroxy acid, it acts as an exfoliant to help shed dead skin to renew skin’s surface and visibly softens signs of aging from sun damage
  • Mandelic: this form of AHA is an especially large molecule, so it does not penetrate the skin deeply, therefore, it exfoliates at a lower risk of irritation
  • Australian Caviar Lime Extract: fruit acid gently brightens and smooths skin
  • Tamanu Oil: a nut oil native to the south Pacific that helps skin heal and regenerate itself
  • Rosehip Oil: chock full of vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids to hydrate the skin and protect it from environmental damage

Key Benefits:

  • Skin-clearing serum but in cleanser form
  • Clears away pore-clogging debris and dull dead skin
  • Exfoliates to reveal brighter smoother skin with smaller-looking pores
  • Ideal for adult acne—it reduces breakouts without stripping skin of moisture
  • Light, non-foaming formula rinses away clean

Tip: If you cleanse twice a day, alternate between Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash with Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash to strengthen your skin’s barrier and soothe any inflammation. The less inflamed your skin is, the better it will react to exfoliating acids.

Save the Actives for Topical Products

I have to be honest, I didn't like this at all. I felt that it irritated my sensitive skin and I wasn't getting the benefit of the AHA.  I prefer using a simple, gentle cleanser (like the DHC cleansing oil) and save my active ingredients for after I wash my face (essence, toner, or serums).  However, I will say this is a great brand overall. I like a lot of their other products. If you don't have sensitive skin and like to use less products in your skincare routine, this product would be a great fit for you!

Fantastic Cleanser

I love using this once or twice a week on days I'm exfoliating and not wearing retinol. That said, my dermatologist told me to keep this on my face for 5-10 minutes for the active ingredients to work. Otherwise, you're just washing them off.

Don’t care for the smell

Too soon to tell. The non foaming makes me feel as if it’s not working. It’s watery, but I’m going to finish the bottle and see what it does for my acne prone skin. It’s been like 2 weeks 2-3 times a week.

Strong smell but worth it!

I love this cleanser! I've been using it for about a month, and I see a significant difference in my skin (combo/acne prone). It works really well with my acne prone skin by limiting the amount of break outs. I know my skin is getting some type of facial treatment even if I'm just following up with a hydrating toner and moisturizer. But it's gentle enough to use with exfoliating products in the same routine (which I do frequently for those stubborn patches), but strong enough to really pack a punch and make a difference by itself as well. The only con is the smell which can be a little strong at times.

Very gentle

Non foaming and very gentle. No tingling. Very smoothing. Smells like Ayurvedic herbs.

Gentle and effective

This face wash feels so gentle despite the Glycolic and Mandelic acids. It has never caused any irritation or redness and my skin always ends up looking clear and glowing after using it.

Great cleanser

I heard good things about this acid wash cleanser and wanted to try it. I use it in combination with another gel face wash a couple times a week and I really think it does make a nice difference! My skin feels clean and exfoliated without being stripped. It's very gentle but does the job. I have very sensitive skin and it doesn't bother me.

Like a light peel in the morning

I use this 2-3 times a week. I wanted something "fancier" than my La Roche Posay salicylic acid wash. I'm glad I tried this product. I find it is a bit stronger which is not necessarily a bad thing. For reference, I could probably use La Roche Posay every morning without overdoing it. This cleanser is different. It doesn't foam, and the smell can catch you by surprise, but I really don't mind it at all. I always prefer unscented products. Overall, it really feels like a mini facial in the mornings! That's the main reason I might repurchase in the future. I like to massage it into my skin and (depending on the day) leave it on there for 1-5 minutes.
