Deep Moisture Cleansing Balm

Beautifully locks in moisture

I have dry, fair skin so in the summer it’s gets hit hard by all the sunscreen and washing. This cleanses well and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean without feeling stripped.

Love this product!

This cleansing balm is so smooth on my skin, does not have a fragrant smell, and rubs in so easily on my face. I had never tried this product before, but am really happy I decided to try it. It works wonders when taking off my makeup!

That´s exactly what it is!

Deeply moisturising! I am obsessed... read more about it on our blog. It's on our favourites list...

Not for me

I saw some reviews suggesting this would be okay for sensitive skin. Alas, I had a reaction to it - probably because of the fragrant components. It doesn't matter if fragrance is natural or synthetic. Also I should add that cleansing balms and oils are not true cleansers - they're more like makeup remover.

Thanks for your feedback! Deep Moisture Cleansing Balm does not contain essential oils or fragrances of any type. You might have had a reaction to the shea butter, grapeseed oil or another ingredient. And you're right, this is a different sort of cleanser that leaves oils behind to moisturize the skin instead of the squeaky-clean feeling of a foaming cleanser. Thank you for trying it!

Soo luxurious

I live in Colorado, so it's dry year-round, and the weathers especially harsh to my face in the winter when I'm outside skiing. I swear there's not enough moisturizer in the world for how dry I get in the winter. This cleansing balm is so gentle and moisturizing for my windburned/sunburned/dry skin, I love it! My face feels soft even before I reach for my face cream. Will be purchasing over and over again!
