50 reviews for BOTANICAL ELIXIR Facial Cleanser

  1. Heather

    Amazing as always! Thanks for the extras Lynn!

  2. Julie Hawkins

    My face is so, so happy since I stumbled upon Lynn’s products. I love the Botanical Facial Cleanser, the best I have used in my 54 years. Cleans my face well, leaving it feeling soft and doesn’t burn my eyes. The packaging and presentation of these products is divine and knowing they have been lovingly crafted by hand makes it all the sweeter. In my last order Lynn included two samples chosen for me and a full size honey Soule’ Decadent Cream, which is delicious! A customer for life!

  3. pinkliciouz

    I’ve only been speaking highly of Chikyu everywhere I go. Lynn always puts a lot of thoughts and care in all her products and in sending the package and always includes extra goodies of her upcoming products which I always appreciate! I’m loving the Nourish face cream will definitely buy the full size when I run out, very gentle and it leaves my skin soft! I can’t wait to try out the Dermal Gel and the Honey-Thyme facial scrub. I’ve been using Chikyu’s facial cleansers only for the past year and have been very happy, will continue to purchase from her. I already placed another order of this cleanser cause I dropped the bottle yesterday when I got the package 🙁 The cleanser works so well, lathers great, VERY gentle. Works great with my Clarisonic. Thank you so much Lynn, I’m always beyond satisfied with my experience with you.

  4. Isshana

    Not heavy but never too light for my dry skin. Smells divine. I apply the toner and the serum from this store and got better skin ever.

  5. pinkliciouz

    Chikyu always surpasses my expectation. I broke the bottle of the cleanser and made another purchase, but Lynn very kindheartedly refunded me the cost. How unexpected and generous! I’m beyond moved. And as always, all the package is wrapped neatly like a folded kimono 🙂 Everything is always of highest-quality and high-performing products. I’ll always be a big fan! Thank you so much for making such wonderful products and providing top-notch customer service, all consistently!

  6. Ingrid Rommetveit

    really love this Botanical Elixir Facial Cleanser, my 53 years old skin feels wonderful after using it:-) i use it every morning, and do a oil cleansing at night. I also highly recommend Chikyu and Lynn, she must be one of the loveliest sellers on Etsy. The Elixir came beautifully wrapped, and with some wonderful samples as well. Made my day. Will definitely try more of the Shikyu products. Update: been using the wonderful facial cream I got as a sample, and really enjoy how my skin looks with it as well:-)

  7. Elizabeth Dedge

    I now have three face soaps from this shop. As far as cleaning goes this one is number 1 it smells clean and refreshing while leaving my skin balanced. The vitamin C soap still is my favorite scent of the three I love oranges.

  8. Aly D

    Let me just say Lynn makes the best products and her customer service is outstanding!! She sent samples with my order that she thought would be good for my skin type. I love everything! My skin feels cleaner than it has ever felt! I want 1 of everything in her store now! When you open your box of goodies it feels like it’s Christmas or your birthday because of the beautiful packaging and personalization:)


    i really like the lemony smell and it is effective in removing make up during the double cleanse routine, great for summer when you use sunscreen. Lovely gifts in package too, thank you.

  10. Luantia

    This is my third time ordering from Chikyu. This is the best cleanser I have ever found; my skin drinks it up! It’s incredibly gentle, yet still manages to leave my face feeling refreshed and clean.

  11. Mar

    Love it! Beautiful packaging and excellent customer service. Thanks

  12. Elizabeth Dedge

    This is my favorite soap from this shop I love the way it smells.

  13. Amber Silva

    Having sensitive skin that had bad reactions to harsh chemicals and have had unpleasant burning resulting in a sore, angry face the rest of the day- or several days after I am so happy to have found this store here on Etsy. The shop owner, Lynn, is wonderful and makes every order feel like a special treat from the time you order the products, receive them, and use the items. I love that there are no chemicals or nasty ingredients in ANY of her products. The shop owner surprised me by upgrading my bottle and adding a few additional goodies, which I love. This face wash is a favorite and leaves my face feeling not only clean, but soft without an overly dry or tight feeling. I don’t feel like my face has been stripped and any makeup is removed. I use the oil she sells as well to remove eye-makeup prior to washing my face at night.

  14. Nessie3P

    Cleansing, yet gentle. It removes makeup from my face perfectly. No redness or irritation. My package shipped on time and was packaged very nice.

  15. Nessie3P

    Shipping was incredibly fast as usual; packaging was on point. The owner is very thoughtful and nice to include samples. I was able to find a few keepers that are helping my skin out. I’m very happy with the results and glad I stumbled upon this shop.

  16. Katie

    I’ve tried several of Lynn’s facial cleansers and this one is by far my favorite!! (I have dry sensitive skin). This cleanser keeps my face looking refreshed and healthy! And it smells wonderful!

  17. Tracey Pettingill

    This is fantastic facial cleanser. Easily removes mascara. Skin feels refreshed. Great price too. Happy it is vegan!!!! Wonderful customer service. Absolutely stunning packaging.

  18. Jennifer Cueva

    5 out of 5 stars
    Lynn is amazing ! She was very helpful as I messaged her about her products that may help repair my skin from all the meds and health issues I’m dealing with . She told me very honest what she felt may work and also suggested I order the sample size first so that I could see if it would work with my skin . She was very generous with samples of the 2 of 3 products I would use to see if it helps . I use the botanical elixir facial cleanser once or twice a day , I then use the sea salt mist in the morning after cleanser. At night before bed ,I use the oil , and use on my face and neck . After only a few days , I have noticed that skin feels and looks much better . I really like the products and appreciate Lynn being sweet . Very pretty package and fast to ship!

  19. Natalie

    I really like this. There are quite a few uses in the sample bottle! Leaves my face feeling soft. Doesn’t leave a film that has to then be removed with toner + cotton ball.

  20. Aubree Miletich

    This is seriously my new HG facial cleanser! It leaves my skin feeling clean but also manages to maintain its natural protective barrier and not strip my face of the moisture it needs. If you have sensitive, dehydrated acne prone skin DEFINITELY give this a try!

  21. Jennifer Cueva

    I love this botanical face cleanser! I really like that the bigger bottle comes in a pump as it’s easier to get just enough needed to clean my face . The fresh clean smells great too ! Lynn is always will to help and ships fast and packaging is so pretty ! I appreciate the samples as well !

  22. Ken

    As with all the wonderful products I have purchased from Chikyu, I love this facial cleanser! Very effective but gentle and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

  23. Ken

    As with all the wonderful products I have purchased from Chikyu, I love this facial cleanser! Very effective but gentle and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

  24. Susan Canney

    I have very sensitive skin, and I usually have to wait up to 2 weeks before I can be sure a product will work with my picky skin. As a person in my 60’s I hate to experiment with new products because of the breakouts that usually accompany the trial period. I am very pleased to report that this product works! I didn’t have a trial period reaction at all! YAY for me! Hopefully I can continue to get this product for many years. Thank you = )

  25. Carrie

    This is my second time purchasing, so you know I love it. It’s packed with beautiful ingredients that totally make sense in skincare. This really helps with brightening and radiance. My face is soft and clear. I also adore the Vitamin C Cleanser. I have somewhat sensitive skin and have never had problems with any of Lynn’s products. They’re all very well thought out and balanced. Oh, and this smells heavenly:)

  26. Holly G.

    Not only are the ingredients beneficial to my skin condition but it feels and smells wonderful- spa quality treatment-like.

  27. She She

    I love using this cleanser in the morning or after a long day in the sun. It leaves my skin feeling clean and not dry. Smells great too.

  28. Suzanna

    This cleanser is great for sensitive skin. Multiple uses a day and it still doesn’t dry out my face. The consistency is thin, but produces a nice lather. Scent is lemony and very crisp. I wish the print on the bottle were easier to read, but that might be due to a slightly faded label. All in all, would highly recommend.

  29. Kathryn Hedrick

    Such a clean after-effect! Great free samples to complete and complement my purchase! Stunned and appreciative of Chikyu as always

  30. JenJen

    Lynn is so sweet and her products are amazing! I’ve been using these products for a few years now .

  31. kimmolina750

    Happy with the product – My face feels refreshed and clean afterwards. The sample are wonderful thank you!!

  32. HRH Princess Jenn Kuyper

    Super fast shipping – I didn’t notice that the seller was actually local to me until I saw the shipping confirmation. I love that you can buy world-wide on Etsy but then end up supporting a local business owner! I love the scent (very light but pleasantly noticeable) and am looking forward to using this in my daily routine!

  33. Beth

    Having older skin and living the lifestyle I do, I don’t use makeup much. So when I asked Chikyu if I could order another small sample of this cleanser, rather than the whole bottle, I was surprised that I could. A wonderful clean facial cleanser that doesn’t burn old skin.

  34. Jenna Masters

    Got a trial size version of this for my birthday and I loved it so much that I bought the full size this time around! This does a seriously good job at gently cleaning my face and leaving it so soft and supple looking! Couldn’t be happier!!

  35. gold925pearl

    This is an awe-mazing cleanser in my healthful skin regimen. It removes impurities, balancing my skin making it ready for the next step. Without a clean canvas, how will you paint a beautiful picture?

  36. indigogirl

    My favorite cleanser by far. Gets all the dirt off but isn’t overly drying – just a nice, deep clean. The scent is great too. Also, I have found that this particular product has a very long shelf life; mine always lasts forever and still maintains integrity. A tiny bit goes a long way too!

  37. indigogirl

    I have been using this cleanser for YEARS now. It’s the best cleanser I’ve found on the market. I often use it as part of my double cleansing routine (the second step after oil cleansing), but it also works great on its own.

  38. Lizzy Cunningham

    I liked this face wash! No breakouts happened so it was nice and cleaning didn’t dry me out and texture and larger was good.

  39. erin4g4

    Love this face wash! I initially got the travel size and it lasted 3 months with daily use because a little goes a long way. The full size will last a long time and it’s in a glass bottle! Highly recommend for a gentle, yet effective and hydrating face wash.

  40. Petra Arbayo

    I love the scent of this cleanser. It’s working well on my combination skin.

  41. Annie

    I love this wonderful cleanser. I double cleanse my face with this and the facial oil. Afterwards my face feels so soft and clean. Both are excellent superior products. The seller is lovely as well and sent a wonderful little sample!

  42. Tiffaine

    It’s hydrating but i’m not a big fan of the scent. but i’m sensitive to scented products so there’s that. Makes my face smooth afterwards.

  43. maura

    Wonderful , gentle but effective face cleanser! My skin glows afterwards and isn’t dry or tight. I love it 🥰

  44. Sangeetha

    Second time purchasing it. I love it

  45. Vanessa

    This cleanses gently without being harsh on my sensitive, but oily skin. For reference, I do not wear foundation on my skin. I like to use this in the morning and it is perfect for getting my skin prepped for the day. Fast shipping as always and beautiful packaging. The owner is so kind and generous. I love this line!

  46. Lauretta

    I gott this as a sample,but Iloved it so I brought a bigger bottle.

  47. AA

    This is the best cleanser from Chikyu. Dependable, gentle yet thorough results. Beautiful packaging.

  48. Sarah

    I LOVE being able to try new cosmetics- I have super sensitive skin, and expensive tastes, so it’s great to try it out before you buy a lot. AWESOME cleanser, made with very high quality ingredients, plus a sample! YAY! Not drying but definitely cleans

  49. Linda

    The Botanical facial cleanser left my face clean, soft, and glowing. It has a pleasant scent and shipping was fast. Thank you!

  50. Katelyn

    Healed my dry cheeks so quickly!
