Product Detail

Charged with a trio of acids in an energizing electrolyte solution, the deep cleansing action helps reduce surface oils and impurities, while helping to re-balance the skin.

It leaves the complexion looking fresh, energized and beautifully revived.

Due to natural ingredients in this product, slight color variations may occur.

Cell energy is crucial to skin health. I wanted to create a system that would turbo-charge the skin from within, delivering true vitality to the complexion. This is ground-breaking technology, where the best of science and the best of nature are harnessed for extraordinary results.

Ok but I prefer cleansing balm

I love elemis cleansing balm but thought I'd try this for
a change. I have sensitive skin with dry patches and my skin did feel a little tight after using the biotec. A little does go a long way but I don't think I'll finish this especially now in winter as I find the balm leaves my skin softer.

I cannot get on with this

I love the smell of this, it doesnt lather up well but my skin always feels clean after. However I have had to completely stop using it as I suffer terrible breakouts when I am using it. I was advised to keep using it and after a month all would be well. It wasn't and aside from the incredible amount of spots I was getting, many had turned into hard lumps that were incredibly painful and took a month to disappear after I stopped using it. I tried it again recently in hope that it wouldn't be wasted, but I have suffered the same fate again and am now dealing with the start of another breakout (Including a hard lump under the skin). So upset, I had high hopes for a £40 face wash.

Hi Aimee,

Thank you for your recent review on the Biotec Cleanser. I am sorry to hear of your experience with the Cleanser, whilst it can be common for breakouts to occur, for a prolonged period of time may need reviewing and looking into another product, before using the cleanser all make up does need to be removed with more of an oil based cleanser to prepare the skin. If you would like to discuss this further, please get in touch with our Customer Care Team on 0117316 1888. Thanks,

The cleanser that keeps giving

Working at sea takes its tolls on my skin everyday - battling with the wind and salt water/air, this cleanser is so easy to use and cleans all make up and salt residues off my face without any effort or drying effect as you get with some cleansers that just strip all the natural oils from you. I use this alongside lavender toner and then the cleansing balm as a weekly treat.

Disappointing for an Elemis product

I have been a loyal Elemis fan for around 15 years and this is the first time I have been disappointed with any of your products. I was convinced to buy this by one if your sales beauticians and wish I had stayed with your wonderful try enzyme wash as this one does not leave my skin feeling clean.

Hi Margo,

Thank you for your recent review on the BioTec Skin Energising Cleanser, I am sorry to hear that you have not enjoyed using this product, we would always recommend to use this as a treatment cleanser, once all make up is removed as this cleanser does not remove make up and can leave an unclean feeling if make up is not removed first. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact our Customer Care team on 01173161888 who will be more than happy to discuss this further with you.

Thank you,

Good but not as good as the balm

I bought this as it had such good reviews, some from people who preferred it to the cleansing balm, but for me it doesn't come close. It's a great product but I will be going back to my balm once the bottle is finished.

Love but issue with pump!

I have been using elemis for years and this has become one of my essentials! I love this cleanser, it helps with my combination skin and is a nice change in the morning from the balm I use of an evening. I am however slightly disappointed that the pump has broken after I repurchased this. Is there anyway I can buy a replacement as dispensing this is difficult without ?

Biotec face wash

This is an amazing product and leaves my combination skin feeling clean bright and fresh. I just need to know can l put a moisturizer straight on after or should I be using a toner?

Thank you for your positive review of the BIOTEC Range, we would advise that if you are following with the BIOTEC day/night cream, there is no need to tone as the wash has prepared the skin for the application of these products. If you are following with a different cream, you would need to tone beforehand.

Wakes me up!

No matter how tired I feel in the morning I use 3 pumps of this with a little water and do my face, neck and décolletage. It smells divine, leaves the skin soft and smooth but....the biggest surprise I got was it really does "Wake" your skin up. It truly feels alive. I love this product and one I will definitely continue to use.

Miracle cleanser!!

Again I'm another person who suffers with crohns disease and I am on a boat load of medication. This medication makes my skin very dull and my skin gas started getting spotty. I've been using this for nearly 2 weeks now and my skin has never felt better. The spots have gone down and my face is brighter and definitely more firm. I can't thank elemis enough for this cleanser. It's also a large bottle it 2 weeks my bottle is still full but been using it x2 a day

Excellent cleanser

I really do like this cleanser, it's the cheapest part of the Biotec range.
Literally takes such a small amount to make a nice lather so the bottle should last forever!
Doesn't leave my face dry like other foaming face washes.
Smells divine
