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 gel

Skin feels great- feels smoother, feels SUPER clean but not stripped or dry

Gel Cleanser

I have been using this cleanser for a few months now. It's light to use and my skin feels soft and fresh after using. I also think my skin looks smoother. I'm happy I have discovered Retreatment Botanics.

Gentle but effective cleanser

I've been using the Gel Cleanser for a few months now and I love it! My skin feels perfectly clean after every use and I just use a scrub once a week. My skin feels so clean. I'm so happy to have discovered the Retreatment Botanics range!

Gel Cleanser

This cleanser doesn’t strip your clean or leave it feeling oily. It doesn’t react with my highly reactive skin and smells lovely. I use morning and night and the tube of cleanser seems to last forever!!!

Lori TD
