This best selling, gently foaming facial wash is the simple way to cleanse oily and combination skin. Working on a deep level to cleanse and decongest, it washes away everyday impurities without stripping away any of your skin’s natural oils.

  • For oily, combination, blemish prone and problem skin types.
  • Gently cleanses and decongests.
  • Naturally cleansing and oil balancing.
  • Low foaming to avoid drying the skin.

Massage a small amount into damp skin, using an upward circular motion, taking care around the delicate eye area. Rinse with cool water, then gently pat dry. For best results use daily before moisturising and follow with Purifying Palmarosa Toner and Purifying Palmarosa Daily Moisture.

TIP - for oily skin: Zinc helps to balance sebum (oil) levels so is great to add to your diet if you're prone to blemishes.  It's found in pumpkin seeds, unrefined carbohydrates such as grains, nuts and lentils.

Favourite face wash ever

I’ve used this product for 15 years and it’s both deep cleansing and gentle on my acne prone, sensitive skin. Highly recommend.

Maddie Parkin
Amazing service, lovely product

I love this facial wash and I've been using it for a while, as it's gentle but still keeps my oily skin clear. This order arrived without the lid properly secured so half of the bottle had leaked. Sam from the customer service team was very helpful and solved the issue immediately and a replacement came the next day. Thank you!

Leaves your skin lovely and clean!


I use this face wash alongside the Palmarosa cream and they have worked wonders on my oily skin, and have cleared up little bumps on my forehead. They leave my skin feeling lovely, clean and fresh and smell divine!

Clean and Fresh

I have been using this face wash for about a year now, in conjunction with the Rehydrating Rose moisturiser (see separate review).I find that this face wash gives me a really nice deep clean, and if left on the face for about a minute, it cools the skin, which is a lovely feeling.once washed off, your skin isn't feeling striped, or tight, which a lot of combination skin face washes on the market do.Highly recommend (with the above), if you have combination skin. The pair are a perfect balance for a clean, T-zone free day!It has taken me a long time to find this perfect balance.

Best fir cystic acne

Best thing if you have cystic acne and have sensitive skin , this has cleared my daughters severe acne spots to the point there is now only really the scarring left to treat and I'm so happy as she's been on medication now on off for 2 years ,and we have been trying to find products that are suitable for her skin fir the last 2 years, we were recommended this product off her NaN that asked her dermatologist what she should use and he told her to try this (our dermatologist was useless had no guide whatsoever other than to say just use something mild ) , she is still currently on prescription only spirilactone , but this has been the only facial wash other than cetaphil that her skin can tolerate with out it burning and going dry or bright red , I needed something that could treat the skin as although cetaphil doesnt make her skin react it doesn't do anything to treat it either , her skin tolerates this it's amazing and can't believe her lumps and bumps and spots have dissapered just about (we have tried every facewash cleansing routine going over 2 years , and I mean everyone I've spent a fortune on wasted products , loroche , carbon theory, proactive , cerave , the list is endless none of them have worked but I am amazed to see after two weeks of using this her acne spots have nearly gone it's bizarre and hasn't left her skin dry and tight and raw , I'm not sure on the other comments that say it leaves there skin sensitive as my daughter has the most super sensitive reactive skin going even non acne mild washes set her off , I'm not sure if continued use will make her skin dry out but fir now it has done miracles ,really didn't think I'd ever find anything that would help her , I am now looking into micro needling to help with the red scars and pick scars that are left behind off her cystic acne , I don't normally leave reviews but I would love to help anyone that suffers with cystic acne like my daughter does as the journey we have had with it has been a nightmare so I had to leave feedback on how good this product is if it can help someone , it's a very draining thing to go through changing diets and all the rest of it , also another product my daughter uses that she swears by is from the ordinary that has niamside with zinc and her current moisturising cream from loroche which is non conegenic
