Even though it's unscented, it does have a weird scent. But it leaves my skin feeling so smooth! Great for dry skin too, as it doesn't leave it dry and tight afterwards.

This cleanser has made the biggest difference in my skin in terms of acne, it's so gentle as an exfoliator, I use it as a second cleanser after a cleansing oil.


This is an excellent product for the right skin type. It easily cleared up some mild acne I had on my neck but unfortunately I could not tolerate it on my face. Turns out my skin was just too sensitive to the product as I am prone to patches of rosacea and dryness as well as acne. The company were fantastic at replacing for an alternative product that is working wonders. For the right skin type..oily, blemish prone, not too sensitive, this cleanser would work great.

Haleema Sadia

Lovely little pumice pieces, just the right size and texture. Leaves my face feeling very smooth and soft! Helped my complexion loads too! No other cleanser has helped my acne this much.

Phil Livingstone

I've been managing eczema my whole life (i'm 40 now) and this is the best cleanser/soap/wash I've ever used! It's so good I have to buy x2 tubes every time I order nowadays as the wife wants to use it too!


Lovely exfoliating scrub, makes skin very smooth


I do like this, but the scrub part I feel is not that scrubby, it’s fine for a daily wash/scrub, but maybe this is what my skin needs something a bit more gentle. I’m happy to continue using as I do feel my skin is a little clearer overall.



Aleksandra Wozniak

very nice product, light, no greasy or drying the skin, very recommended

Lynne Pearce

My favourite of the three products I bought. Really fantastic cleanser, especially first thing in the morning. It's totally non-drying and makes your skin feel incredibly soft and smooth. I'll be buying this again.

This cleanser leaves my skin feeling really smooth, soft & hydrated.It's like having that spa cleansed facial at home everyday!

Emma Moxhay

Great product! Makes your skin feel really cleansed and clean but not harsh at all. Been brilliant for my skin, use it every day.

Kate Parkin

I really like the subtle scent of mandarin, its not overwhelming at all. The natural pumice feels great too.

Angela Burgess

An excellent product. It gives a very thorough yet still gentle deep cleanse.


The best face wash I’ve ever used, no smell and all natural it has cleared up my skin so much in 2 weeks and after using it your face is slippy smooth.... it’s a strange feeling but a good one.

Seana carroll

Great product, feels clean and fresh after using, and sorted some of my acne problems.. still get blackheads but the big sore spots are a thing of the past, and it's not harsh-this cleanser actually moisturises too, to a degree.. only gripe is the packaging - nozzle frequently gets blocked, but product inside brilliant


Use this scrub every morning and apply the retinol day cream which works but doubt it would make any difference on its own. I'd recommend using it along with the face cream and Serum to see great results

Zoe McWilliam

Amazing, I feel like I’m touching someone else’s face. It has made such a difference
