Removing your cleanser with a wet cotton muslin cloth will level up your cleansing ritual by helping with the make-up removal, deep clean AND gently exfoliating too.
Will this cleanser remove my makeup?
Purifying Gel Cleanser will remove light make-up, and using a wet cotton muslin cloth will level up your cleansing ritual by helping with the make-up removal, deep clean AND gently exfoliating too. If you wear heavier / eye makeup, we recommend using our Radiance Cream Cleanser (for oily / blemish prone skin we would suggest double cleansing with Purifying Gel Cleanser twice instead).
Will cleansing everyday dry out my skin?
No way! We formulated Purifying Gel Cleanser so that it could provide a really deep clean but without stripping the skin or compromising the natural barrier (be careful, plenty of cleansers out there do!). When cleansing your skin, you need to put hydration back in at the same time, and that’s exactly what our Purifying Gel Cleanser does - it’s like cleaning whilst taking a big drink of water.
Is Purifying Gel Cleanser pH balanced?
Yes! The levels sit somewhere between pH 5 - pH 5.8. You can rest assured that our cosmetic scientists have developed this cleanser to suit most sensitive skin types and are pH balanced.
Do I need to double cleanse?
For your PM ritual, after a day of wearing SPF and make-up, plus exposure to environmental pollution, we recommend double cleansing and using the Purifying Gel Cleanser twice (oily / blemish prone skin), or starting with the Purifying Gel Cleanser and finishing with Radiance Cream Cleanser! Removing your cleanser with a wet cotton muslin cloth will level up your cleansing ritual by helping with the make-up removal, deep clean AND gently exfoliating too.
Is this product safe when pregnant & breastfeeding?
Yes! In fact, our entire range is loved by pregnant and breastfeeding women. However, if you do have any concerns, we suggest consulting further with your medical professional as every individual is unique.
When do I apply my Purifying Gel Cleanser?
We recommend applying Purifying Gel Cleanser daily, in the AM + PM. Visit our layering guide to see when, how often and which order to apply your product/s.

Love this creamy cleanser, briliant for my dry mature skin and is great at removing all make up including eye makeup. Love the whole range and it has become my savour with my mature hormonal skin
I often find cleansers to be thick or claggy. This cleanser, a small amount goes a long way. It feels delicate on the skin, and you can smell the quality of the product - no fake scents added to it to make it smell better.
