    • 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.

Great light formula that removes all traces of make up

Loved this product is very soft on my sensitive face. Has also helped clear my acne :)


This product smells lovely and does not dry my skin at all! It also removes all traces of makeup: so far so good!


It's a nice cleanser, it's very gentle and smells lovely (I got the scented). It removes makeup fine, but does not remove my physical sunscreen unfortunately. I emailed Facetheory about it and they promptly refunded me in full as it did not fully work for me, so I really appreciate the customer service side of things. They told me they have a true makeup remover launching in 2019 which I will certainly try.


When I started using this I broke out quite badly after and I did not notice my skin becoming brighter

First order of this cleanser. Found it lovely creamy and leaves the skin comfortable and soft without any residue. Removes all my makeup and I like there is an unperfumed version. Only been using for just over a week so I’m not sure if my skins brighter. The quality of the cleanser is good and it’s reasonably priced ticks all the boxes for me so will buy more.

This product is amazing, it removes double wear foundation and mascara easily and gently leaving my skin soft and thoroughly cleansed.

Kirstie Kelly

Works wonders. Makes my skin soft and clean. Great product.

Gayle McAulay

Used this for a few weeks only a little bit goes along way

Janice Richards

This is a nice consistency, goes on well, washes off leaving my skin feeling clean but not dry. It does take makeup off very well too!

Anita Clarkson

Really love this product. Very soothing and cleanses well.

Diane Greaves

I got a great offer for 2, and i love this product it really works well on my skin.

Jacqueline Towers

This is the only cleanser I’ve ever used that doesn’t dry out my face after. I love the citrusy smell, it’s a nice wake up in the morning. The only con was I did break out a tiny bit the first week using it which has cleared up since.

Nazifa Islam

Very soothing and cleansing. Feels like cream and perfect for my sensitive skin. My dry flaky areas (sorry for the graphical image XD) on my fave have almost disappeared and overall my skin looks much better. Keep it up Face Theory!!

Karen Coleman

This cleanser smells gorgeous , the texture is really creamy and it removes all make-up and mascara in particular really well, once the cleanser is rinsed off my skin felt really soft and didnt feel tight and dry.


So soft on my skin and doesn’t cause a rash (which most cleansers do). Really love it and my skin feels so fresh afterwards.

Jemma McCulloch

Good cleanser. Removes make-up well. Smells nice.


Great at removing make-up. My skin feels clean, refreshed and soft after use. Recommended.

Mrs Claire Stubbs

The mandarin version smells divine and perks you up. Skin feels throughly clean after use but not stripped

Carol Francis

It’s pleasant and takes my makeup off well

Angela Burgess

I just love this cleanser! It is absolutely amazing. It removes every trace of double wear foundation and mascara. I use Facetheory muslin cloths. It leaves my skin thoroughly cleansed, soft and supple.


Good affordable cleanser with a nice smell. My skin feels softer than before

Janice Richards

This does exactly what it says it will do - I’ve even taken full make up off with it. Apply it to slightly dampened skin, work it in, wash it off. Leaves my mature skin feeling fresh, doesn’t feel tight, the product is a nice consistency, covers well, cleanses well too. I read the reviews and thought I’d give it a try, and everyone was correct! I’m so glad I’ve tried this and am gradually shifting my whole regime across to Face Theory.


Tried this due to good reviews but I didn’t find it worked well for my oily acne prone skin. I didn’t find it took my makeup off that well, I had to use a micellar water afterwards and the pad was always covered with make up still. My acne didn’t get much worse but it also didn’t improve.

Hi Cheryl Sorry to hear this - we've contacted you to offer a refund or replace. If you want to improve acne you may be better served by the triple acid glycolic cleanser. Jamie



I love how gentle it is. My skin feels so much softer and my complexion has improved. I had a compliment about my skin the other day and was asked what I used because I had a nice glow.

Sue Da Conceicao

I have loved everything I've ordered from Facetheory so far. This cleanser I don't! It doesn't remove my makeup. Will not be ordering this again. What a disappointment.

Hi Sue Sorry this wasn't for you. Please contact us at for a refund or replacement product. Jamie

Angela Burgess

A fantastic product. I didn’t expect it to remove every trace of my double wear foundation but it does! My skin feels thoroughly clean and very soft afterwards. Slight downside - when nearing the end of the bottle and the pump no longer works it is a bit difficult to get it out. Well worth this though. I just stand it upside down and make sure I already have a new one!
