'Acid Washed' Foaming AHA Facial Cleanser

Sometimes you just need a quick foamy clarifying wash. You want witch hazel and a gentle exfoliation but nothing too irritating...
Enter, Acid Washed! This is a luxurious and unique exfoliating foaming facial cleanser rich in witch hazel and aloe vera, with added AHA lactic acid and skin softening ingredients, formulated for daily use on oily/combination skin.

Why lactic acid?

Lactic acid is helpful for smoothing and softening rough or scaly skin and keeping blackheads and acne at bay. 

It's suitable for dry and sensitive skin because it is one of the gentlest alpha-hydroxy (AHA) acids, and it offers hydrating benefits as well. I love it, personally it's my favourite acid. 

It's also vegan - not made from milk!

Why in a cleanser rather than a toner?

Using a wash-off acid instead of a leave-on acid toner also helps keep this product gentle.

Perfect for you if:

Your skin struggles to cope with regular acid products, or if you want a non-drying foaming cleanser with added benefits of AHA.

Can be used as a second cleanse to our Face Off Oil-to-Milk cleanser too for people who like that squeaky clean!

Please note that raw oils can vary in colour, viscosity and scent across batches due to changes in harvests. The cold-pressed oil grades we use (not heated or refined) are even more prone to variations between batches.

Let's talk about 'Acid Washed' Foaming AHA Facial Cleanser

This is not as strong as a normal acid toner. It's more like a traditional foam cleanser with a sprinkle of extra exfoliation via the Lactic Acid, therefore it's gentle enough to use daily on oily skin, without risk of aggravation.
It's also not a makeup remover, best for a second cleanse instead. Try our Face Off for proper makeup removal!
We've used alcohol-free witch hazel hydrosol as an effective natural astringent, and mild sulphate-free cleansers derived from coconut oil, as well as vegetable glycerin to hydrate.
Hidden within this exfoliating mousse are many protective and hydrating plant-based additives.

Retro scent evocative of 70's disco scent led by Rock Rose and rounded out with fresh and herbal anti-bacterial essential oils.

Love this

Hands down my fave facial cleanser. I struggle with folliculitis and I swear this is the only thing that makes it better. Makes my face squeaky healthy clean. Lasts ages bc it’s a foam, and the refill worked a charm. Will repurchase as long as they stock this.

Love this product

Another winner from NB! Love the fresh and clean feeling I get after washing with this cleanser and it even got a compliment from my husband who has sensitive skin.

Love it

Love it! I have oily combination skin and big pores and while they haven’t gone away I’ve definitely seen an improvement. Been using alongside the simmer down oil and it just feel so indulgent and lovely. Feels like it’s gonna last a while aswell because a little goes a long way.
