After going through 3 jars of PureChimp banana cleanser (review here), I decided it was time to try something new. I heard a lot of good stuff about the oil cleansing method but I was afraid of using it because putting oils directly on my t-zone makes me break out. However, I was really curious about it and decided to give it a try.
BalmBalm deep cleansing balm is a really simple organic balm that melts when it comes in contact with skin. It has a quite strong natural oily/herbal scent because it is made of oils, shea butter and beeswax. This balm must be used with a muslin cloth, so I purchased the one from BalmBalm. You just apply a pea size on dry skin, soak the muslin cloth in warm water and then just use it to wipe off the balm from your face. You can also leave the warm muslin cloth on your face for a couple of minutes before wiping off the balm, to benefit more from the oils.
I totally fell in love with this cleansing method because it truly cleanses, exfoliates and leaves my skin supple, hydrated and fresh! The skin absorbs the needed quantity of oil, whereas the unnecessary is wiped off and doesn’t end up clogging the pores. I find that this cleansing method is for all skin types, in particular for dry and dehydrated ones.
I bought both products online. The balm comes in two sizes 30 ml/1.01 US oz (12 USD) and 60 ml/2.02 US oz (23,6 USD). The muslin cloth comes in a pack of 3 pieces (9,5 USD).
