If you have never been able to use cleansing balms like me because they erupt in a breakout the day after, then rejoice as I've found one for confused skin like ours! It's by a company called Botanicals and as you can probably tell by the name and the packaging, the product leans more towards the natural and organic category, which is always great in the chemical laden world we live in. This cleansing melt is the Rose & Camellia one and smells sweet, warm and spa-like. I wanted to say 'it smells like Christmas' but the phrase is a bit too overused no? It's quite comforting to use and instantly makes you want to trust it for it's cleansing abilities. Like every dubious blogger, I tried it with caution but was pleasantly surprised by it's ability to keep my skin balanced. It's been a regular evening cleanser since then and my skin's quite happy.
Like every balm cleanser, you need to use it on dry skin or otherwise it just does not perform as well. Keep a warm flannel or a muslin cloth ready to wipe off the slap from your face and voila! Just one cleanse is enough to remove the day's make-up. But of course I go for the double cleanse. Skin feels supple, hydrated and squeaky clean after use with no trace of excess oil lingering around. It's one a 'Best Organic Facial Skincare' award once and is definitely worth giving a go.
