Chamomile and Mandarin Cleanser
For all skin types.

I love this cleanser- it effectively removes all make up and feels like a spa treatment leaving the skin amazingly soft and nourished

As an esthetician that favours more natural products I’m always looking for short ingredient lists, with botanicals that make sense. Our skin naturally produces oils (sebum), and we NEED it in order to keep our skin healthy and happy. I love to recommend this product for my clients with mature, and/or dry skin types. For the best results remove any excess product with a damp facecloth.

I apply this product first thing in the morning, then let it soak in whilst I potter around. I really like the softness, and coolness of this cleanser. It’s sensitive to my skin, and cleans my face and my pores really well. I leave it on a while then rinse it off. This along with the other products I use have had an amazing effect on my skin for the last 6 years. Love, love, love this brand, will never use anything else!

I absolutely love Helena’s cleansers – my friend convinced me to try them 3 years ago and I haven’t used anything but her products since. I was unsure how an oil based cleanser would work having only ever used water based, but it cleans my skin amazingly and removes all my black eyeliner and mascara with ease. It leaves my skin feeling so refreshed and youthful I rarely need to apply a moisturiser after. Oh, and her products smell divine!!

I tried various make up removers and cleansers over the years, all of which seemed to lead to variations of dry skin, blackheads and irritation… I was getting pretty fed up and, at around the time I was starting to find out more about the benefits of natural skincare, I was lucky enough to discover Helena Lane products. I love this gentle and effective oil based cleanser and ive never seen anything close in terms of the quality of the ingredient list. Follow the suggested skincare routine and you are in for a treat.

I have used many different cleansers over the years but this is the one I’ll now stay with forever. I like knowing that the ingredients are all natural and organic but I also really love the feel of the cleanser on my skin and above all it’s so effective. I wouldn’t dream of going to bed without having used it!

It´s a very gentle cleanser, great for more delicate facial skin. I would recommend especially for dry skin because of its texture (like a balm). Easy to apply and with a good smell.
– October 13, 2017
I loved the smell, and the texture. Daily I wear a cake load of makeup, and it removed everything nicely.
– October 16, 2017
I found that the cleanser does work well in removing dirt and maintains the skin’s protective barriers, but I feel that this product may be a bit too oily for my skin, despite it saying that it’s for all skins types. However, I have very sensitive and oily skin and I easily get outbreaks from products, so I may just not be able to use the product for that purpose. I would recommend this product to anyone who uses makeup often, or have dry skin.

Haven’t used an oil based cleanser before, but I loved it! Left my skin feeling super soft. The oily residue that is left behind takes sometime to get used to if you aren’t used to it already. Looking forward to using it in the cold and dry Toronto winter!

Great! Product left my face feeling smooth and clean, not dry. The smell was divine!
– November 1, 2017
The smell was very nice, but the only thing I didn’t like is the oily film it leaves – I have combination skin, so I could see it applying it to my drier areas but not all over my face… even my drier areas it felt very oily. So I would probably recommend this to a person who has very very dry skin.

Usually, my skin struggles for my going from summer to fall… NOT THIS TIME! When I have the time I wait the whole 20 minutes (usually it’s just the 2 minutes) and then remove, spritz my face with rose water, then use a serum! once I used this product a few times the oily residue seemed to absorbe quicker leaving virtually no residue. Deffinate fan! Can’t wait to try more Helena Lane products.

This product took me a while to get used to because it’s oil based so I didn’t feel like it cleanse very well. You have to use quite an amount to ensure that your face is entirely clean. The good thing about this product is that your skin feels moisturized after the wash, unlike other alcohol based cleanser that dries up your skin.
– November 10, 2017
At first I wasn’t really clear on how to use this product because it was very waxy on the skin, but the label said it was a cleanser. It leaves my skin a little oily but I really enjoyed using it after a few tries because the moisturizing effects lasts a long time!
– November 18, 2017
It was very strange to use an oil-based cleanser and I’m not sure if it works for me but it smells so good!
– November 23, 2017
Pretty kickass. I’m a total cake face, which means I needed to use it twice.
– December 8, 2017
Not your typical cleanser. It’s very rich and felt a little too greasy at first. The scent was extremely pleasant though. I think it would do wonders for someone with dry skin or for the harsh dry winters.
– December 11, 2017
This cleanser is super moisturizing! I usually have very dry flakey skin in the fall and winter seasons, but using this oil based cleanser for the first time made my skin completely smooth. It does leave a bit of oil residue on the face (which helps keep in the moisture), so I only use this cleanser at night. I personally do not like dealing with the residue in the morning before putting on makeup.
– December 18, 2017
This is my favourite product ever. I feel amazing when I wake up the next morning after using it, sometimes I’ll skip makeup because my skin feels like it’s glowing. It is used as a cleanser or mask, but sometimes I will wear a thin layer on my face and neck while I sleep with a towel on my pillow. My skin looks so healthy the next morning. HIGHLY recommend.

This product truly baffled me. I’m new to the “natural” skincare world but this was introduced to me through CertClean’s beauty box. I’ve never dug my fingers into an open jar of viscous oil before. The result? Simply amazing. My dry skin probably needed this type of cleanser a long long time ago. Very happy to have discovered this cleanser and Helena Lane.

This was one of my first forays into oil based cleansers and is by far the best, it smells great, and when paired with a scrub made my skin feel so soft and smooth, and not extremely oily afterwards (I used a warm damp face towel to gently wipe off excess). I couldn’t stop touching my skin in wonder afterwards, felt like I didn’t even need moisturiser afterwards!
– May 4, 2018
LOVE THIS PRODUCT! The skin is left feeling really clean and nourished — in a way, like others have said, you can’t stop feeling your skin afterward – always pleasantly surprised at how soft my skin feels.
Having to put my fingers in the jar is a bit strange at first, but my love of the product quickly squished that concern.
Helena’s Serum is also epic too.

I have a combination skin type: dry cheeks and a very oily forehead. While I’ve been told by various beauty experts that my face would be less oily if I applied oil to my skin (“oil cuts oil”, as they say) I really haven’t found this to be true. At the end of the day, my forehead is always greasy, with or without added oil products. For this reason, I almost always avoid oil-based cleansing products. Okay, with that preface, here’s the review: The Helena Lane Chamomile and Mandarin cleanser had the consistency of creamed honey, so I expected it to be more like a sticky scrub, I was quite surprised when I realized I was covering my face in oil. Despite my nervousness about this, I let it “soak in” for about 5 minutes. It felt nice on my skin, but when it came time to wash it off, I found no amount of water and a wash cloth would get rid of the oily feeling. I ended up using some of my regular face cleaner so take some off. This might work really well for people with dry skin, but I didn’t like it.

This cleanser made me fall in love with oil cleansing! Its luxurious texture and uplifting scent are divine on the skin. I love the philosophy of less is more – this product does not need to be followed up with a moisturizer unless your skin really needs it. Most nights, I cleanse with the Chamomile Mandarin Cleanser and skip the moisturizer because my skin feels hydrated and plump.
– May 23, 2018
Great texture, felt very luxurious! I didn’t take to the fragrance (probably not the right word, since this doesn’t actually have any “fragrance” in the ingredients! Just the lovely botanicals), but every nose is different!
– May 25, 2018
it’s really nice in my opinion. Once it’s applied to the face, at first it may feel a bit sticky. However, it’ll seep in and your face will feel smooth and soft. I recommend it
– June 3, 2018
The cleanser is super! My skin feels really good after cleansing, and the product doesn’t dry out my skin. Love it!
– June 7, 2018
I have very dry and sensitive skin, but I loved how effective and gentle this cleanser was. I used it before bed, and my skin felt so soft, it was almost dewy (which doesn’t usually happen with my skin!).
– June 17, 2018
This product wasn’t a good fit for me. It left my skin soft but I didn’t like the feel of it after I washed it off. Maybe coincidental but I had a slight acne breakout after.
– October 14, 2018
This cleanser is fabulous. I reccommend it to friends with combination skin in particular. Great smell!
