Galen Cold Cream

Cleanser and Make-up Remover


A natural, gentle, moisturising cleanser and make-up remover, Galen Cold Cream has been used to cleanse skin since the age of the Ancient Egyptians. Our take on this time-tested remedy contains the natural humectant Almond Oil, which gently removes even the heaviest of mascara without stripping the skin of natural oils or disturbing its delicate pH balance. Galen Cold Cream leaves your skin feeling soft and cared for.


– Cleanses
– Removes dirt, oil and impurities
– Removes make-up


Apply directly to face using a cotton pad or your fingertips. Wipe all traces of cream away with a cotton pad or a damp cloth. You may also apply Galen Cold Cream directly to a clean face and leave overnight for maximum moisturisation.

    Love this, I need the moisture on my chin as it can dry out, so this feels moisturising as well as cleansing!

    The best make up remover I ever used 😍

    This cream is exactly what I wanted to remove makeup in packaging that isn’t plastic and has natural ingredients. It removes everything and I only need a small amount. I have tried oil cleansers but they seem to not work for me and are messy. I’m very happy with this.

    Initially wasn’t sure about this cream but have grown to love it’s deep moisturizing effect. Use it on my kids also for dry skin in these cold days!

    This is exactly what I’d been looking for. I have spent ages looking for a natural gentle cream based makeup remover and in a container that isn’t plastic. Lovely product. You only need a tiny amount each time. Took mascara and all makeup off perfectly. I followed with gel cleanser for a thorough clean.

    Lovely cream cleanser, very gentle but removes all make-up without feeling harsh. Leaves skin soft. Very like the Lush cleanser- Ultrabland, but this has a nicer scent.
    Love the packaging too, it comes in a little aluminium pot.

    I love Dublin Herbalist’s Galen Cold Cream for taking off make-up and moisturising. I use it every day and my skin has never been better. I also really love that there is no plastic packaging involved! *And* they sent my order in cardboard box with paper packing and paper tape. Love it.

    Amazing and gentle on facial skin. No dry patches since using it. A little amount spreads really well and lasts ages. Would recommend it and would buy again.

    I absolutely love this cold cream and it has replaced my usual facial cleanser. It feels so indulgent and buttery on the skin and I’ve also used it as an all-night moisturiser, beautiful product.
