    • Vitamin C Cleanser is a gentle cream cleanser. Natural ingredients work together to remove grime and unblock pores while being gentle on your skin. Kinder than soap with no complex, harsh chemicals.  
    • Sodium ascorbyl phosphate - a stable form of vitamin c - provides anti-oxidant power to neutralize free radicals and other environmental aggressors.
    • C1 is cleansing and soothing. Glycerin helps protect skin against water loss. Sweet almond oil provides a rich complex of skin-repairing ingredients including triglycerides and fatty acids (oleic, linoleic, and myristic among them). Coconut offers a rich source of medium chain triglycerides.
    • Natural - This product contains no parabens, silicones, polyethylene glycols (PEGS), SLS or SLES, or mineral oils - and is not tested on animals (cruelty free). We manufacture all of our products in the United Kingdom to exacting standards.
    • Rich and long-lasting - 150ml of this rich cleansing cream provides you with exceptional value.

    A cream cleanser with stabilised vitamin C that’s strong yet sensitive. Available scented or unscented, Vitamin C Cleanser C1 removes impurities, make-up, and surface oils from your skin – leaving you refreshed, renewed, and ready to go without tht tight feeling that soap-based cleansers can leave you with.

    I totally love this cleanser. It's so rich and silky. Made a huge difference to my sensitive dry skin. I will definitely be purchasing more skincare products from Facetheory in the future.

I am using it in the morning. Love this product but it's not cleaning my makeup well that's why I am using different product in the evenings.

Cleanses face better than any product I have ever used, makes my skin feel super clean and soft, I used to get spots but now I don’t thanks to this product pulling all dirt out of my face!!!

Smells amazing and feels amazing on my skin!!

Emily Hoyle

This is such a great cleanser. So soft and creamy and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. The glass bottle looks great in my bathroom and I think it will last a while, as a little generally goes a long way. My skin always feels smooth and looks brightened after using it, so I'm really pleased overall and look forward to continuing to use it!

Have been using this product every morning for almost two months and my skin is visibly brighter and smoother. The mandarin smell is also really nice and not too strong.


Love the smell and texture of the product


My face feels clean and hydrated and skin looks more radiant after every use. Love it.

Joshje de Goeij

My skin feels soft and hydrated. I still get some spots sometimes. Before using this cleanser they would get infected, now they are gone the next day!

Charlotte Lincoln

This cleanser makes my face feel so soft and removes make up without stripping pores and making my skin dry. I love it and will be repurchasing.


So gentle on very sensitive skin. Have noticed a difference already after only using for a couple of weeks. Very happy to have found Face Theory products.


Gently and lovely


Suzanne Van Straaten

Excellent cleanser leaving skin balanced and refreshed. Exactly what a cleaner should be doing.

Nikki Van Dijk

It's a nice cleanser and it does what it says. It's got a subtle mandarin scent and i don't mind it ( I actually never like the scent mandarin or orange, but this one is not that heavy)


I’ve been using this cleanser for around 10days I love it. I’ve haven’t had any breakouts which lately I was suffering with due to contraception change. My skin feels soft and moisturised when I’ve used this cleanser will be buying more The smell is lovely!

Leigh campbell

Such a lovely product and my skin feels So smooth and soft and brighter and you don’t need much .. little goes a long way ..

Jo McGrath

This leaves my skin squeaky clean without drying at all. I am sometimes prone to hormonal acne and this cleanser has not caused any breakout so far. It removes all make up and leaves my skin looking bright, hydrated and feeling really clean. It smells delicate and lovely too. I will buy this again. I am vegan so it’s also great to know that no harm has been caused to animals at all in making this product which is the first thing I check for x

Patricia Neale

Love it, leaves my skin really soft


This is the best cleanser I’ve ever tried! I have very dry skin and it doesn’t leave my face feeling tight or flaky but instead smooth, moisturized and it has the most lovely scent! Love it and will definitely repurchase the bigger size!


Lovely cleanser. The more you work it into your skin the more it grows! Pleasant smell.


I absolutely love this cleanser, it smells amazing and has been the first cleanser I can use day and night with it drying my skin. This will be a staple in my bathroom from now on.


Absolutely LOVE all the products I’ve tried! I’m bad at following a regular routine but these products forgive me for my lack of habits and make it so worth while! Everything is on reorder, and I desperately need to control my urge to buy personalised routines for friends and family! Def the best skincare I’ve tried thus far :)
