Gentle Gel Cleanser



The Lowdown

This lightly foaming cleanser is great for oily, breakout-prone skin. While it's first and foremost a cleanser, it has natural exfoliating properties to help clean out pores and calm breakouts. Gel cleansers can be stripping, but we love this one because it's expressly not. Plus, the bergamot and willow bark can help that congestion leave your pores. Deeply cleansed pores mean less visible ones.

If you ever feel tight after a cleanse, it's either the wrong cleanser or you're simply using too much product. Think less product, more time circling and cleansing.

We recommend this for

If you're looking for a muscular cleanser that won't dry or strip but deeply get at makeup, grime, and congestion in your pores.

How we use it

Apply a pea-sized amount to your fingertips, foam up with water, and massage into face in a circular motion for 30 to 60 seconds. Wash off with warm water.

What to expect

Expect skin to feel cleansed to the touch, but not overly tight or dry.

This cleanser will last you forever. You don't need to use much for a great, effective cleanse.

Back of the Bottle

  • White Willow Bark

    Willow Bark Extract is ideal for reducing inflammation and associated redness, with the bonus of possibly having an antimicrobial effect. Although Willow Bark Extract contains salicin, a chemical precursor to Salicylic Acid, it is not actually Salicylic Acid or a Salicylic Acid substitute. 💡

  • Bergamot

    Bergamot Essential Oil, cold-pressed from the rinds of citrus bergamia, has an uplifting floral citrus aroma and may help to balance oily complexions. Fun fact: Bergamot Oil is what gives Earl Grey Tea its distinctive flavor.

  • Camellia Seed Oil

    Camellia Seed Oil is a light, moisturizing oil that exhibits exceptional antioxidant activity. It is especially well-suited for formulations intended for maturing skin. 💧
