Maintain your skin’s equilibrium with this beautifully silky & light emulsifying cleansing oil to milk formulation which gently but effectively removes make up, sunscreen & impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Rinses off with water - no washcloth needed!

NEW - refills with aluminium caps are now available to purchase in 100ml size. To refill, remove the aluminium cap from the refill bottle and replace it with the pump dispenser from your empty cleanser bottle (note that pumps from my previous amber packaging will not fit). Important: to prevent contamination, do not wash the pump or get it wet (water introduces the risk of microbial growth in the cleanser), and avoid using it for other products. I recommend disposing of the pump after a maximum of 9-12 months.

Key features
  • A balancing and soothing blend of botanical oils suitable for all skin types, but especially combination/oily & problem skin owing to its light formulation featuring predominantly high linoleic oils that won't clog pores
  • Includes a gentle plant-based emulsifier which allows cleanser to be rinsed off with water: providing cleansed, soft skin without a greasy residue
  • Organic jojoba, lavender & geranium help to balance the skin, rosemary cleanses whilst comfrey soothes

Shake gently before use. Dispense 3-4 pumps oil into the palm of your hand and massage over a dry face and neck for at least a minute, to lift off make up & impurities. Splash face with warm water to emulsify cleanser then massage a little more. Rinse off with warm water, and a warm wet washcloth if desired. Repeat or follow with a second gentle cleanser if needed. Use with caution over eye area being careful not to get the product in your eyes (I recommend removing eye make up first with a separate product).

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Use by expiry date, which is 12 months from manufacture (see base of bottle).

Please note you may notice some cloudiness/sediment in the oil, especially in colder weather which is perfectly normal and doesn't affect the quality/experience of using this product.


100ml size: Amber PET plastic bottle with pump dispenser. There is also a refill option available (aluminium bottle with aluminium cap) should you wish to re-use your existing pump dispenser.

30ml size: amber glass bottle with pump dispenser (perfect size for travel!), the amber colour slows oxidation of the oils 

Also available as part of a bundle.

    Holy grail

    I absolutely love the rebalancing oil, I think I found my new holy grail. The oil was ever so subtle and used as a part of my double cleanse routine, it left my skin feeling healthy and great
