    A cream cleanser with stabilised vitamin C that’s strong yet sensitive. Available scented or unscented, Vitamin C Cleanser C1 removes impurities, make-up, and surface oils from your skin – leaving you refreshed, renewed, and ready to go without tht tight feeling that soap-based cleansers can leave you with.

    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.

Smells lovely and really makes my skin moist. Will be buying again.

Kirsty Robb

I'm on my 2nd bottle of this and my skin feels so clean after use. I hope you look into refills for the bottles so i dont end up with loads of the same empty bottle!

Hannah Liversidge

I don't think it's taking off waterproof make-up but it's lovely for a morning and evening cleanse when I just need to get the muck off! I only use a little amount, it doesn't foam but it does make my skin feel nice and a little tight, so would recommend using moisturiser straight after.

Jasmin Begum

This is a great cleanser to use in the morning or as part of your second cleanse in the evening. I was unsure before I purchased as it says it is for combination skin and I have dry skin so I dropped them an email. She responded promptly and she even said that she uses it and has dry skin. She also said that it doesn't remove makeup as that was also my query. I appreciated the honesty. I usually use Liz Earle and I am now questioning weather I carry on using both, or change it to this all together. Its a gentle cleanser, moisturising and doesn't strip out my skin which is exactly what i look for in a cleanser! Smell is a bonus:)

Donna McAleavy

Lovely smelling cleanser. Gentle enough to remove eye make up and leaves skin feeling soft.

Craig Keillor

Combined with facecloth this take off my makeup brilliantly. Nice smell too.


I have really sensitive skin, also oil prone. I found this product really gentle, didn't dry my skin out and calmed down redness. I would recommend


So far so good, feels soft to the skin and does nog dry your skin out. I love cleansing twice a day. I use the unscented one, because I do not feel fragance is good for the skin.


I bought unscented but I wish I had bought scented now. Really creamy, leaves skin feeling soft and supple and doesn't dry my skin out.

Already seeing results and it's been 2 weeks only!

I am using it in the morning. Love this product but it's not cleaning my makeup well that's why I am using different product in the evenings.

Seneque James

Cleanses face better than any product I have ever used, makes my skin feel super clean and soft, I used to get spots but now I don’t thanks to this product pulling all dirt out of my face!!!

paula fitches

This is a nice gentle cleanser that doesn't dry my skin out.

Shakerah Brown

Smells amazing and feels amazing on my skin!!

Emily Hoyle

This is such a great cleanser. So soft and creamy and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. The glass bottle looks great in my bathroom and I think it will last a while, as a little generally goes a long way. My skin always feels smooth and looks brightened after using it, so I'm really pleased overall and look forward to continuing to use it!

alex bridge

Have been using this product every morning for almost two months and my skin is visibly brighter and smoother. The mandarin smell is also really nice and not too strong.


Love the smell and texture of the product


My face feels clean and hydrated and skin looks more radiant after every use. Love it.

Joshje de Goeij

My skin feels soft and hydrated. I still get some spots sometimes. Before using this cleanser they would get infected, now they are gone the next day!

Charlotte Lincoln

This cleanser makes my face feel so soft and removes make up without stripping pores and making my skin dry. I love it and will be repurchasing.


So gentle on very sensitive skin. Have noticed a difference already after only using for a couple of weeks. Very happy to have found Face Theory products.


Gently and lovely


Suzanne Van Straaten

Excellent cleanser leaving skin balanced and refreshed. Exactly what a cleaner should be doing.

Nikki Van Dijk

It's a nice cleanser and it does what it says. It's got a subtle mandarin scent and i don't mind it ( I actually never like the scent mandarin or orange, but this one is not that heavy)


I’ve been using this cleanser for around 10days I love it. I’ve haven’t had any breakouts which lately I was suffering with due to contraception change. My skin feels soft and moisturised when I’ve used this cleanser will be buying more The smell is lovely!
