really nice

i have struggled with moderate acne for a few years as a teenager and have combination skin and recently it became really bad again, but i got given this as a present and even though ive only been using it for a week there has been a massive difference. you only need to use a small amount and although there is a little bit of fragrance, it is very gentle and good for sensitive skin and makes it feel soft but firm. almost all my blemishes have gone and the ones that are still there have calmed down a lot. i got this along with the palmarosa moisturiser and it is a really nice combo. i havent tried this brand before but it has been one of the few things to actually help my skin so it is definitely worth the money :)

Not had adult acne for years now

Purchased this for a few years now because of suffering with adult acne and wanted to get off prescribed medication. Since using this range (toner, face wash, moisturiser and face mask) I just don't have any acne problems ever! Brilliant product/range and would highly recommend.


Really pleased with this product. My skin is clearer and I've less blemishes than I've had in ages. I was a little unsure of the fragrance of the Palmarosa but now I really like it. I bought the whole Palmarosa skincare range and I'm very happy with it.

The perfect face wash.

I've been using Palmarosa face wash since i was a teenager and it really is brilliant for oily skin. I have very oily skin and found this really helped leaving the skin fresh and keep oil at bay. I would recommend using it with the hydrating serum as i have found this to be the perfect combo.


It has cleared up my skin nicely and my face feels less oily. I have tried a lot brands like clearasil but it didn’t clear up my skin like this.I differently recommend!!

Match Made In Heaven

Excellent facial wash for my oily/combination skin and very gentle to use on my face. Have been using this product for a few years now, having suffered acne problems and was dubious to try - other facial products flared up my facial skin and left my face looking ugly, this product has made a difference and having found the perfect match, wouldn’t change. Love the smell, easy laver, no need to use a lot and leaves my face fresh looking, smooth & soft. Need very little face moisturiser to use after cleansing. Love this product and is a MUST HAVE to aid cleansing my face. Thank you Neal’s Yard.

Amazing for Acne Prone Skin!

I have been using this product for just over 2 months now and it has done wonders for my acne prone skin. This is the first face wash I have found, after trying many, that visibly makes a difference! While I do still get the odd spot, the difference before and after for me was incredible. This product doesn't dry out my skin even after using it consistently twice a day, which is a problem I find with a lot of acne face washes currently on the market. I would 100% recommend this product if you have oily or combination skin that is prone to acne.


Easily THE best facial wash I’ve ever used. I wear makeup every day including full coverage foundation, mascara and eyeliner. It removes all of this quickly and easily, doesn’t sting my eyes even when I’ve accidentally got some in! It doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry or right afterwards and I have terribly dry skin. An absolute must-have and I’ve recommended it to friends and colleagues.
