    • Gentle, natural power - Natural ingredients work together to remove grime and unblock pores while being gentle on your skin. Much more gentle than soap and 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.
    • Cleansing yet soothing - Glycerin helps protect your 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 provides a rich source of medium chain triglycerides.
    • Natural - This product contains no parabens, sillicates, 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 vitamin C that’s strong yet sensitive. Available scented or unscented, Cleanser C1 removes the impurities, make-up, and surface oils from your skin – leaving you refreshed, renewed, and ready to go. But what makes this can-do cleanser so special is its formulation, made up of the most gentle ingredients available. So whatever your skin type, you can give it the care and nourishment it deserves.

    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.

lovely and gentle with a beautiful scent which doesn't irritate my skin


I've only used the cleanser for about 2 weeks, I started using it at the time when my skin was very dry, tender and full of acne. It actually cleared out after 2 days but I cant't say if it was the product or just biology. I've been using the cleanser every night to remove my make which works very well, doesn't sting my eyes. I have a very sensitive skin with eczema but didn't have any reaction to the product. My skin feels softer and I don't get this stretched dry feeling after washing it off like I do with a lot of cleansers. The bottle is quite small so O wonder how long it's going to last. Nevertheless will be buying again.

I like this cleanser its gentle with out being drying, but does have a brightening effect.


Jackie Bradbury

This is the first cleanser I've used that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I apply the cream cleanser on my damp skin in the evening, massaging it into my face and neck area, and remove it with a damp bamboo face cloth. Unlike other cleansers this product doesn't cause my skin to become dry and flaky. My skin looks and feels hydrated. I'm really pleased with this product and will be ordering it again!


This is an amazing product! I have been using it for just over two weeks and can definitely see a difference. My skin feels more refreshed and brighter, so glad I bought this product!

Lucy McGuire

Love this face wash. Use it morning and night and it leaves my face lovely and soft.

Lauren Mead

I was ready to love this cleanser but I was underwhelmed. It is a uncomplicated, unscented cleanser without smell and it has a nice texture. It is not an effective cleanser if you are wanting a gentle deep clean. If you don't wear much make up and have normal skin this will work well for you.


Love this product! After a few weeks my skin is looking brighter and have had quite a few compliments!!


Excellent cleanser. Doesn’t always wash mascara off first time but everything else about it is great. No more dry skin and complexion is clearer and brighter


Lovely creamy cleanser. Gentle and cleansing to skin used alongside bamboo cloths


It smells lovely and feels so creamy and luxurious. One pump is enough for my whole face so will last awhile. Leaves my face feeling fresh, soft and not at all tight.

If I could mark this more I would. As an Espa girl this stuff has won me over and it works. Lady who does my waxing comments on how good skin was looking . Thanks very much. Odd texture but get used to it. My go to now

Charlene Clarke

Love it cleared my skin up great, so gentle on skin!!

Lina Smalinske

Leaves a very nice feeling skin, doesn’t dry out skin and smells lovely

Linda Kelly

Oh wow, does my skin feel soft and smooth! I usually use an AHA cleanser, but thought I'd give this a go. The price is obviously attractive, but would it work? The answer is yes, absolutely. I use it in a different way to my previous cleanser in that I massage it onto dry skin then use a dry clean face cloth moistened with warm water to remove - I have a teenage daughter who has the odd breakout and I've ordered one for her as she tried mine a couple of times and loved it. Price, packaging (glass bottle, which I think is great), and results are superb. Would definitely recommend - I have sensitive, combination, nearly 50 skin - love this product!

Emma Jones

Great cleanser, removes excess makeup and keeps my skin really soft. Has a nice scent too

Tara Booley

This is a lovely creamy cleanser which doesn’t dry my skin out at all after using. Hydrates my skin and leaves it feeling soft and supple.

Sarah Davies

Excellent cleanser. Even when I think my skin is already clean this still manages to find more! So glad I found it. Perfect for use with the moisturiser and serum I also bought in this order

Susan Salako

This cleanser feels very nice and moisturising. It is not too harsh and my skin feels lovely and clean after using it.


I love this! I was a bit surprised that it wasn't foamy/bubbly when I rubbed it in but soon got used to it as it's all nice and natural - it leaves my skin feeling really lovely and fresh and clean, not clogged up or anything and it's definitely improved the condition of my skin and acne.

Jo Marker

Creamy, and makes skin so soft and smooth


I haven’t been using it that long but I definitely have seen an improvement in the clarity of my skin. I also think it’s helped manage my breakouts as they don’t last as long and heal quicker. Enjoying it so far!

Lisa Reynolds

Wow! Probably the best cleanser I've tried ,and I've tried lots!!! My skin feels so fresh and nourished, and takes all my make up off with ease. Will order again.

Pauline Lamont

I bought this as an alternative to the exfoliating cleanser, I felt that might be a bit harsh to use twice a day. This cleanser was the perfect alternative. It’s gentle, effective and has that amazing Mandarin smell. I have tried a LOT of cleansers over the years and had most recently been using a fairly high end brand. It was effective and I was happy with it, but the price and all the nasty ingredients in it put me off. I can’t fault any of the facetheory products I’ve bought, and I placed two subsequent orders with a few weeks of receiving my first order. I love everything about facetheory, from their choice of ingredients, their ethical stance, commitment to the planet in terms of packaging etc, customer service standards and pricing. Oh, and not to forget the small fact that their products work like a dream!!

Maddie Hall

Doesn't dry out the face at all. It's a white creamy consistency which kinda melts around the face probably best to wipe away with a flannel or konjac sponge afterwards to remove all residue but skin didn't feel tight or anything and I've noticed a great change in my skins moisture levels. Will be buying again.

Martina Skowronska

Great smell! My face feels really smooth and moisturised. It's really gentle for my sensitive skin. My favourite face wash so far!

Sophie Duffey

Your skin will instantly feel super soft and smell clean and fresh
