A cleansing balm was a new one on me – I’m much more used to facial washes and micellar waters – so I was excited to give this little lovely a go! This was a sample from this month’s Birchbox, so is a mini 10ml size as opposed to the 80ml full-sized product.
Like micellar waters, this balm is applied directly to dry skin, making your night-time beauty regime that little bit easier! You only need a tiny amount of balm, and massage it in to remove your makeup. And honestly, it’s one of the best makeup removers I’ve ever used! Even stubborn waterproof mascara just melts away! Unlike micellar waters, you do need to wash the balm away with warm water, but it leaves your skin feeling gooorgeous.
The only thing I’m not too keen on with this product is the fragrance. It is supposedly mango, rosehip and coconut, but I get none of these scents – just a bit spicy and medicinal. However this little balm definitely does do what it says on the tin, and is a really easy and effective way to clean away your makeup with minimal effort!
