5 Excellent Cleansing Balms
Cleansing balms break down and remove makeup, dirt, oil, and pollution at the end of the day and leave skin feeling hydrated and nourished.
Once you’ve adopted a cleansing balm into your cleansing routine, they will likely always have a place in your regimen.
I prefer to use a cleansing balm as a second cleanse. After I remove eye makeup and make one pass over my face with micellar water and a cotton pad, I go in with a balm, taking time to really work it into the skin, and removing it with a warm washcloth. This 2-step cleanse removes every trace of dirt and makeup leaving my skin supple and nourished.
