I’m always on the look out for the right cleanser to balance and brighten my combination skin. When choosing a cleanser for combination, oily or blemish-prone skin avoid harsh formulas that strip your skin and leave it irritated.
I’m a big fan of Aurelia London so I picked up their Balance & Purify Citrus Cleanser during their sales.
AURELIA LONDON Balance & Purify Citrus Cleanser, 120ml
Keep combination skin in check with our super fresh, gently foaming cleanser. Packed full of naturally derived ingredients, this citrus-scented blend features PROTIDA™ technology and salicylic acid to help brighten, even and defend against future breakouts. And because it’s all about balance, this formula is enriched with a welcome touch of moisturising marula oil and cold-pressed baobab oil (trust us, no skin type likes over drying).
- Combination, oily and blemish-prone skin
- Absorbing and dissolving excess oil
- Hydrating and toning
- Boosting skin cell regeneration

- MARULA OIL – Seals-in hydration and softens skin, offering antioxidant protection by funnelling essential fatty acids into skin, helping heal and minimise scarring.

How to Use
Lather a little of Aurelia London Balance & Purify Citrus Cleanser onto wet skin using your fingertips. Apply in circular motions and then rinse away with warm water. Follow with the Balancing Ultra-Light Moisturiser for best results.
This cleanser has a lovely creamy and smooth consistency. The citrus scent is refreshing and uplifting so I enjoy using it for both my morning and evening skincare routine.
It doesn’t have much of a lather when applied to wet skin but glides on the skin when massaged in. After rinsing, my skin feels thoroughly cleansed, balanced and brighter. The formula is really gentle and is also perfect for my pre-teen son as it has helped clear some blemishes and prevent new ones.
Overall a great cleanser that is very effective and a pleasure to use. Try this cleanser out if you are looking for a refreshing, creamy foaming face wash packed full of naturally derived ingredients to help brighten, even and defend against future breakouts.
