Clarifying Cleanser

Skin Type Combination, Normal, and Oily
Skin Goals Acne-Clearing, Calming, and Detoxifying
  • Gently exfoliates to target blemishes and help clear buildup
  • Helps balance oil without over-drying
  • Soothes redness and calms irritation
Foam party

Typically, clarifying cleansers leave your face feeling dry and tight (in a bad way). Not this one. Made of a gentle foaming gel, it targets blemish-causing impurities for a deep-clean feeling and matte finish without any of that uncomfortable dryness. Oh, and it also cools the skin on contact, so redness and irritation don’t stand a chance.

Massage two to three pumps onto your dry face and neck, then rinse with warm water.


This cleanser also doubles as a flash-cooling mask. Just apply to a dry face, let sit for two minutes, and lather with water to rinse off.

  • I'm obsessed

    Hillary M. June 12, 2020

    This product has been a savior. I was dealing with a lot of congestion on my forehead and since I’ve started using this product, it has completely cleared up. It feels amazing in-use too – I actually look foreward to washing my face! Thank you to Follain staff for recommending it – it was exactly what I needed!

  • Amazing so far.

    Emma W. May 05, 2020

    I’ve only been using this cleanser for 4 days and I’m already obsessed. It smells so amazing, makes my skin feel so clean and refreshed and soft. I have trouble areas around my chin and jawline due to hormonal acne, and I already feel like this is helping with redness and keeping away new blemishes. It’s a little drying in those areas, but I have dry skin so that might not be the case for everyone. My luxurious Josh Rosebrook moistruizer and oils help bring back the moisture, so that’s not really a concern. Can’t wait to continue using. Hopefully this’ll end my search for the perfect cleanser!

  • Refreshing Cleanser

    Kate April 21, 2020

    This cleanser tingles as you apply it and really makes your skin feel totally clean. I would recommend it for people with oily skin, as it does make your skin feel a little tight. I use it as night and use Tata Harper’s Resurfacing face wash in the morning for its exfoliating properties. It has helped with my hormal acne I tend to get on my cheeks!

  • Smells great!

    Elizabeth B. September 05, 2019

    This cleanser is amazing. I love the smell and my skin felt clean after using it. My skin did start to feel a little tight and raw some times but I added extra moisturiser and it was fine. Does not take off makeup which isn’t A problem for me. I would definitely recommend

  • Tata Harper - Clarifying Cleanser (highly recommend)

    Donna June 16, 2019

    This was also purchased for my husband as a recommendation because he tends to get breakouts from being an avid cyclist. Having not been a Tata Harper line fan because I was provided samples I felt were duds…I was HIGHLY impressed with this. I sneakily use this when my husband is not around as I have enough of my own products to use and this is his special cleanser that he uses a couple times a week. We use this as a dry cleanser, right into the palm and onto the face. Sometimes I mix it with May Lindstrom’s Clean Dirt (I like to over-do it). He loves using this after he cycles for a full day with his riding buds. It TINGLES upon application and it makes your face feel so refreshed (like when you use witch hazel or something to that affect), which we both love. It smells good and we both feel that this does an amazing job cleaning away riding grit, NYC subway sweat…just washes away your full day of city air. It does not feel drying if we do not moisturize right after. My friend who owns Meant Beauty likes my reviews because I’m honest…so in complete honesty…This is the BOMB. I already bought a second bottle (and we haven’t finished the current one). Its THAT GOOD. lol I sound like I’m recommending a bottle of red wine.

  • Love!

    Julz B. April 11, 2019

    I absolutely love this cleanser. It has this cooling sensation that really makes it feel like its getting all the gunk and congestion out of you skin! Whenever I have a breakout pop up, I always use this cleanser and the spot is smaller and calmer by the next morning. My skin can be dry in some spots and oily in others, so it’s tough to find a breakout-fighting cleanser that balances both, but this is a winner. Will always be a repurchase!

  • WOW

    Suzie S. April 07, 2019

    I’ve been using this product for about two weeks and my pores have already shrunk like CRAZY!! It makes me feel clean and I can feel it working!! It’s 1000% worth every penny

  • Detoxifying without Drying out my skin

    Maddie December 31, 2018

    Love this cleanser! The clay gives it a gentle exfoliation to help feel like it cleanses the skin and getting rid of impurities in my skin, but once I wash it off my skin does not feel dried out. Found that it also serves as a great mask! I leave it on in the shower while I wash my hair and body and rinse of the mask at the end with great results!

  • Great for summer

    Marric B. September 23, 2018

    My skin always starts breaking out in the summer and this product has done wonders at keeping my acne at bay. It feels very refreshing and smells fresh.

  • Such a refreshig cleanser

    Olivia B. August 31, 2018

    I have dry skin that is still prone to breakouts and I love how this cleanser feels. I massage on and leave on for about 2-3 minutes before rinsing. The cooling sensation from the mint is great after a long day in the summer heat. The honey in the cleanser also helps not dry my skin out so my skin feels clean but not stripped after cleansing. My skin is noticeably calmer and more balance after using this at night. Great for acne prone skin that’s still on the drier side!

  • I feel my skin getting squeeky clean!

    Jayna K. August 23, 2018

    I’m in my early 40s and have had trouble with clogged pores and brightness, but now I use this as the second step in a double cleanse and my face is glowing (the first step is the One Love Organics Vitamin B Oil Cleanser). The smell is fresh and awakening. A bit on the pricey end but you barely have to use any to get a nice cleanse.
