Hyper-Gentle Balm-Gel Cleanser


Your secret helper for un-stressed skin




Massage a little of this concentrated gelled oil into your skin to lift sunscreen and foundation without upsetting your delicate skin barrier.

A simple splash of water transforms the golden gel to a thin milk, for effortless removal. 

20% glycerine leaves a hydrated after-feel too.

A small amount is all that's needed; one bottle contains approximately 125 pumps of gel, and you can use between 1-4 for each cleanse. 

As gentle as water

The Balm-Gel cleanser was categorised as non-irritating using an extra sensitive mildness test


Graphic showing Harborist's irritation value at 0 on a scale





It achieved the mildest possible score — the same as pure water. 

When your skin is un-stressed, it can work, feel and look better.


¹ Using In Vitro Assessment of the Skin Irritation Potential following the XtraMild ET50 method.

This packaging has been chosen for its superior recyclability. It's ultra light-weighted to minimise the total material used and does not have a metal spring. 

When finished, place the empty bottle straight into the recycling stream whole, without taking the pump off.

We're actively working on switching to using recycled materials in our packaging for 2022.

R.G. - Harborist customer

"This is genuinely the best cleanser I’ve ever used to remove make up and sunscreen ( first cleanse)! I’ve gone through many bottles and will never be without it"

V. - Harborist customer

"This is the least irritating cleanser I've ever used on my skin - on the contrary, it feels soothing and as though my skin has a chance to repair itself."

Hannah - Harborist customer

Changed my skin for the better - my skin is far less reactive, much softer, less reddened and I have experienced far fewer breakouts.

How to use

Use 1-4 pumps, depending on the texture you prefer. Massage the gel cleanser into dry skin using damp fingers. Remove using splashes of water and hands, or a soft washcloth.

One bottle will last around 2 months, depending on usage.

If you prefer a light cleanse in the morning, simply use less cleanser with more water, for a quick refresh.

Unique formulation

Designed from scratch by an independent chemist with personal experience of highly reactive skin.

Gentle as water

Verified non-irritating using an extra sensitive mildness test.

British made

Manufactured in the UK countryside with third party certification of the GMP ISO 22716 and ISO 9001 standards
