This innovative cleanser transforms from a gorgeous, naturally hued jelly to a silky oil and rinses clean as luxuriously soft cleansing milk.

  • Removes all traces of makeup, leaving skin hydrated and soft
  • Restores balance and defends against environmental pollutants
  • Safe for all skin types, even those with super sensitive skin and eyes
  • Winner: 2021 Glamour Beauty Awards "Best Cleanser" and 2020 Health Beauty Awards "Skin" and "Cleansers".

The color of our Elderberry Jelly Cleanser is derived from a natural extract, not a synthetic colorant. Because of this, different batches of the product may vary in color, from a deep fuchsia to a more transparent pink. This color variance is normal and does not affect the performance or efficacy of the cleanser.

For external use only. Use only as directed. We recommend a patch test prior to use if you are particularly sensitive. If irritation occurs, consult a dermatologist.

Another full size purchase after sample

Biossance knows their products are so amazing and that’s why their gifts with purchase are the best. I’ve repurchased most of them, including this wonderful jelly cleanser. Perfect for my first cleanse and very gentle on my dry/sensitive skin. I usually use balms but really enjoy the experience of this unique jelly that turns into a more oil like consistency. I pair it with the amino acid cleanser for my second cleanse and my face feels clean, yet not dry or stripped. It’s also my go-to in the morning if I need to wash off an overnight mask but don’t want to do a full cleanse.

It’s okay

The video shows the women using this to remove eye makeup and mascara which I was impressed with so I tried to use it like that and it burns my eyes. Do not use on your eyes!! Other than that it’s great as a facial cleanser just don’t use it to remove your eye makeup.

Burns my eyes, can’t use it

I really want to love this but it burns my eyes. Smells really good, takes off sunscreen when the Aloe cleanser won’t. Sadly I can’t use this and will have to toss it. I tried to use on 3 different days, thinking I was just more sensitive but it still burns eyes long after I’ve dried my face. This was the only new product added to my regimen so I know this is the cause.

So disappointed

Literally love all things Biossance but this product was such a let down :( Not only did the cleanser not remove any makeup well, the opening sucks so when you tip it over literally too much comes out and it also leave a film on your skin after using so you def would need to wash with another cleanser after.
