Is it ok to pair a salicylic acid cleanser with retinol? I'm assuming the combination would not be irritating since the cleanser is rinsed off and not left on the skin?

If your skin can tolerate it then yes that is safe to do. I use a retinoid at night and use the salicylic cream cleanser in the morning then sunscreen.

Is it safe to apply retinol right after using a SA based cleanser? I've read somewhere that salicylic acid used in a cleanser is of a lesser concentration than salicylic acid solutions (such as the ordinary 2% SA).
