12 Reviews

Availability: Selected spas and on

Specially designed for oily an combination skin, this all-natural gel cleanser contains mild, foaming cleansing agents quillaja extract and soapwort. It cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oils, and restores its natural balance. Seaweed extract maintains skin health while smoothing and moisturising.

What we say:
I never thought I could get as excited over as cleanser as I did when I first tried this one. I don’t often use natural cleansers as I find they don’t always work as effectively as I would like them to. This one, however, is different.

It worked perfectly with my combination skin – after using it for a couple of days I found that my skin was less shiny, and I had no breakouts whatsoever. My skin felt beautifully smooth and soft after each use, and the scent… Don’t even get me started! Beautifully scented with essential oils, the smell fills the whole bathroom and reminds me of luxury bath oils.

Definitely one of my favourite cleansers of all time!

Clean and green…

Karen Pienaar

I’ve used plenty of facial cleansers in my life. I received this as a sample and HAD to buy a full bottle. If you’ve never cleaned your face with this product, you will never know what a clean skin feels like :-) I am 49 years old and still sometimes get breakouts but with this product I could really feel and see the difference. It is in gel form and doesn’t make your skin feel dry after you have washed it and you only need a drop of the product to clean your whole face. If you are new to face products, treat yourself to this lovely product, you will stick with it forever, and if you’re using other products – CHANGE now! you will NOT regret it…

Natural Cleaning

Nurjehan Perin

I recently purchased the editors box from rubybox, and received a sample of this product. Its an all natural Essential Oils Cleanser ment to be used the morning and evening.

It has a strong scent since it contains marula, aloe vera. I have been using it during the evening only since I don’t like the scent for the morning. It does make my face feel refreshed (aloe vera) and it left my skin feeling super soft and not dry unlike other cleansers. I like that’s its 100% natural. The only issue is the strong scent. If you want to splurge on this product bare in mind the strong scents of aloe vera, marula, african potato and rooibos. But me personally will definately be repurchasing since it really does wonders on my skin.

Just Not For Me

Tarryn Payne

I was very excited to try this cleansing gel as my combination skin makes it very hard to find products that work for me. It smells amazing and the natural ingredients sounded fabulous. Unfortunately it did nothing to reduce the oil slick on my T-zone and was very drying om my cheeks. I persevered with this cleanser for two weeks before I gave up. However, I gave it two stars because it smelled wonderful and the design of the bottle is quite lovely.

Loving the Cleansing gel


The minty feeling makes me feel like it opens the pores. It has a wonderful smell and rich lather. I just love the cleansing gel, my skin is clearer and brighter.

Wonderful product

Leandra Bothma

I have been using this product now for about two weeks. This a natural product that is strong enough to remove all impurities, yet not so harsh on my skin that it strips my skin of it’s natural oils. After about a week I had less gunk on my face and after about 10 days I had this natural glow to my face which I am always struggling to get (probably because I have not used the right product….right?…). The only thing that will make it go from a 10 to a 9 will be the smell. It has an overpowering herbal type smell that I did not expect when I used it the first time. But for me I can look the other way, as long as it cleans properly without stripping my skin of everything that keeps it healthy and keeps my ph levels from jumping up and down, which it did. Overall this is a wonderful product for my skin.

Great Value


I started using this cleanser about 2 weeks ago and already notice a difference in my skins texture and appearance. My skin looks cleaner and my pores smaller. The great thing about this cleanser is that it is good for almost any skin type and doesn’t contain those harsh chemicals that most cleansers contain. It is definitely a favourite. Another great product from Africology.
