Gentle Daily Cleansing Balm
This gentle cleansing balm is specially formulated to turn from oil to milk on contact with water. Smooth this cleansing balm over skin to remove dirt, oil, and makeup without leaving that tight, drying feeling and compromising the skins natural acid mantle. This cleanser is easily removed with just water, which means you don’t have to work hard to take it off.
Your skin will feel smooth, nourished and soft after use, with a natural glow, perfectly prepped for the following steps in your skincare routine.
This soft textured balm is all you need for an effective, deep cleanse, even stubborn mascara doesn’t stand a chance. If you’re a fan of the double cleanse method this cleanser can be used as your first and/or second cleanse.
Recommended for all skin types, especially sensitive skin as it's fragrance/essential oil free. We always recommend patch testing before use.
Massage a scoop of balm into dry skin, allowing the cleanser to break down makeup and dissolve excess oil and impurities from the skin. Add a splash of warm water (the oil turns into an easily rinseable milk) and massage again to begin emulsifying the cleanser. Next, fully rinse off using warm water, or our warm damp cloth. Can be used AM and PM as part of your regular daily cleanse. For an intensive hydrating mask, leave the balm on your skin for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.
Do not place wet fingers into the cleansing balm.
Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
Safflower Oil – hydrates dry skin, whilst soothing any irritation and inflammation. High in linoleic acid, and omega-6 fatty acid, which is found naturally on the skin, as many acne sufferers have a deficiency of linoleic acid, safflower oil can help to reverse this.
Glycerin – A humectant that draws moisture from the air around us and helps to keep the moisture in the skin. Its primary function is to hydrate the skin whilst also enhancing the penetration ability of other ingredients like oils or emollients into the skin’s uppermost layers.
Squalane – Derived from olive oil, it has an identical structure to the sebum naturally found in the skin, and it softens the skin and improves its elasticity.
Bisabolol – with its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties to soothe and heal the skin, and calm inflammation. Bisabolol can be considered a pro collagen support as it works to stimulate collagen production.

Eczema prone skin & prone to allergies- love it! Have had no sensitivity at all!
I am so delighted with this cleansing balm! Have finally discovered a product which gets results. My skins feels so soft and after regular daily use my skin is honestly the best it's felt in years. Great product and yes, it's worth the investment - thoroughly recommend.
WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISE WITH THE BALM..THE QUANTITY IN THE JAR IS GOING TO LAST FOREVER...QUITE EFFECTIVE TOO ESPECIALLY FOR THE LIPS AS MOST OF THE TIME THEY ARE DRY...
I HAD FORGOTTEN HOW GOOD THE CLEANSER WAS FROM MY PREVIOUS USE...SO YES DEFINITLY ITS A GREAT PRODUCT....AND THE JAR THAT CAME IN THE BUNDLE WAS A LARGE SIZE SO AGAIN THIS WILL LAST FOR AT LEAST COUPLE OF MONTHS....BOTH PRODUCTS PLUS THE FACE CLOTH ARE WORTH EVERY PENNY...HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE PRODUCTS AS THEY ARE NOT ONLY EXCELLENT FOR THE SKIN BUT EXTREMLY GOOD VALUE TOO....
I honestly swear by this cleanser. I have been using it for almost a year now when it was formally known as minimalist skincare. I use this twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. It leaves my skin instantly feeling glowy and fresh. The formula is so smoothe and doesn’t irritate my skin like other cleansers have in the past. I mainly use this to remove my make up, and when I apply it, it literally melts the make up off without the need to scrub really hard. I’m on my 7th tub of this now and that’s says it all.
I am a male user and I LOVE this product - super effective, gentle on skin and cleans really well. Love that it is all naturally derived in terms of products...skin is our biggest organ! I will be using this again.
