It has a very nice texture and melts easily into skin, takes off makeup and sunscreen with no difficulty. It leaves your skin soft and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. I have very sensitive skin and it didn’t cause any irritation, also does not sting eyes or cause me excessive blurring when I’m taking off eye makeup.
When I ordered this I was weighing up wether to buy a cleansing balm or oil as I’d never tried either. To me an oil sounds like a messy nightmare. I was reluctant to order a cleansing balm as I imagined it’d be dry, hard and would tug on the skin. (Something none of us want). After watching my fair share of online reviews I decided to go for this one, as a balm sounded less messy and messy products discourage me from taking care of my skin.
For reference I have dry sensitive skin as I’m on accutane, it’s not uncommon for even ‘sensitive skin’ products to irritate my skin and make it sting.
Knowing this I was worried when I tried the product, luckily all my worries were quickly put to rest as it didn’t irritate or dry out my skin nor was did it tug on my skin (my biggest fear).
The important thing to remember when using a cleansing balm is that you must wash it off with a normal cleanser when you are finished, and to be very thorough.
After washing my face, my nose and cheeks always get quite red. Despite this I feel fine, after washing I simply put on my calming products and all redness disappears.
As tiring as it can be sometimes to wash your face at the end of the night after brushing your teeth, it’s absolutely crucial to wash off all the grime and products from the day before bed. It makes a huge difference in your skin.
Easily the best cleansing balm you can buy! No excess ingredients that are irritating. Defs a staple :)
Love this - sherbet texture no fragrance gets all makeup and sunscreen off without leaving a residue behind and no eye sting.
Leaves your skin soft and refreshed.
