How To Use
Massage a nickel-sized amount of cleanser onto damp skin using gentle, circular motions. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Ultra-effective when used alone or as the perfect second step in any double cleansing routine.
As a gel-based cleanser, Botanical A Facial Cleanser targets dirt like dust and sweat that oil-based cleansers may not fully remove. This makes it perfect for a refreshing, gentle cleanse in the morning or as the second step in any double cleanse when combined with an oil-based cleanser like Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil.
Why are acids good for the skin?
Lactic acid is an AHA and it helps to improve the look of aging skin, including fine lines, while also enhancing the skin's natural moisture factor. Basically, lactic acid gently exfoliates but also helps to keep the skin moisturized and feeling less dry. Salicylic acid is a member of the BHA family, and it is effective at helping alleviate clogged pores and blackheads, making it a great ingredient choice for those with larger pores who want to minimize their appearance. It can also help keep skin clearer.
Can I use Botanical A Facial Cleanser in the morning if it has AHA and BHA acids?
While acids can be safe for everyday use, any type of exfoliation may leave your skin more prone to UV damage and sunburn. We recommend using a Broad Spectrum SPF 30+ mineral sunscreen (with zinc oxide) and taking protective measures while using this product, particularly within the first week of use.
As Seen On
I love this cleanser because it leaves my face feeling very clean but not at all tight or dry. I am 60+ with combination skin. I use it in the evening as the second part of a double cleanse and as my morning cleanser.
I was really excited to try this. However my skin reacted to this cleanser in a negative way! My face felt soft after I used it for two weeks but it was also so red and looked very irritated. My pores looked huge and I got pimples! I haven’t had a breakout in years and I panicked so have a stopped using this specific product and my skin still looks terrible :( . I do love love love the oil cleanser and will continue to buy it!!
I would think I’m in between oily and dry skin, the perfect middle ground.
I love this cleanser! After using it my face feels very clean but not dried out. Also love the smell!
I purchased this not long ago and have only used it twice. After the first time, my skin broke out the next morning which I thought was a once-off. After the second time, my skin was red-hot, irritated and itchy. I’m quite disappointed as I still have a full bottle that I can’t use. Please use with caution as it may not agree with your skin.
We're truly sorry to hear about your experience with our Botanical A facial cleanser. Individual skin reactions can vary, and it's unfortunate that this product wasn't a good fit for you. We do recommend patch testing, especially for sensitive skin, as initial purging may occur with acid-based cleansers. We're here to help, so please let us know if there's anything we can do to assist or make things right for you. Thank you for your feedback.
I've been using Botanical A as the second step of my double cleansing routine (with Botanical B as my first step) and it's the perfect cleanser. Botanical B loosens up my makeup and Botanical A gets it off my face. I have sensitive skin, and I've had no issues using it around my eyes and on eyelids. I put a half-pump onto a damp cleansing sponge and it's more than enough to get my face and neck clean.
