Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser

This is actually Anthony Logistics’ top seller at Sephora for ten years running. It’s deliciously creamy, non-greasy, soothing, and very cleansing.

Most readers and many followers on Twitter will know that I’m very pro-foaming face washe and very anti-cleansing oil/balm etc. I like the feeling of being clean, so I was naturally a little sceptical of the Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser.

What can I say? It really leaves you feeling soft and very clean, but not tight and dry. My worry with anything creamy is that your face can sometimes feel a little sweaty afterwards, particularly if you aren’t inclined to use a toner to remove the remaining traces of cleanser. On first use, I wanted to see what it felt like without using a toner afterwards and I was hugely surprised.

It’s formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs and triclosan.

What’s Glycolic anyhow? Well Glycolic Acid is a chemical exfoliator that loosens the bonds of surface dead skin cells, allowing them to be easily swept away. There’s a fairly decent concentration of Glycolic Acid – 4.9%. Because all chemical exfoliants can risk leaving your skin a teensy bit dry, soothing and moisturising Aloe Vera helps to calm the skin and help to bond water to the freshly exposed skin cells.

Finally vitamins C and A, two very powerful antioxidants, help to protect and smooth the skin. Vitamin A helps to protect and help rejuvenate our skin’s natural support structure whilst Vitamin C is a fantastic brightening agent.

There’s no artificial fragrance but the natural Pomelo and Mandarin peel extracts give the Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser a really gorgeous citrus scent that lifts you as you get to work with it.

Anthony Logistics Glycolic Facial Cleanser is £21 for a great big bottle (237ml) and available here from Mankind. Check it out.

Great review Thom! I recently tried their Algae Facial Cleanser and really liked it. This cleanser sounds really nice!

I love this cleanser and always come back to it. I think the ingredients inside the product are fantastic and I love the brand itself and their ethics (if that is the right word). I have to agree with you Thom as I like to feel “clean” after a cleanser but this one with my toner just makes my skin feel comfortable and even toned :)

    So glad to hear it has other fans out there! It’s definitely swaying me over to gentle, cream-cleansers.
