Because I love a cleansing balm and here are all the reasons why…
I’ve tried many, many cleansers over the years and cleansing balms are my favorite by far. Why, you ask?
ONE: They’re basically a three-in-one: a makeup remover, cleanser and serum
Yep, it’s true. I love a good multi-tasking product. No explanation necessary, right?
TWO: Cleansing balms are super gentle.
They’re creamy and feel amazing on your skin due to the fact that they’re mostly oil-based, which also happens to be awesome for removing makeup with out stripping the skin. And no, don’t worry, just because they have oil in them doesn’t mean they’ll make you break out – quite the opposite actually.
THREE: They’re great for sensitive skin, in particular.
If you have dry or sensitive skin like I do, then you know a foaming cleanser is probably the worst thing for you to wash your face with. A cleansing balm doesn’t have any detergents or other harsh ingredients that dry you out, so you’re basically cleansing with a high-quality moisturizer that won’t strip your skin.
My latest favorite cleansing balm: Banila Co Clean It Zero Purifying Cleansing Balm for Sensitive Skin
For one, K-beauty is a venue of beauty that I really love because Korean skincare is light years ahead of beauty everywhere else (true story). When I first tried the Clean It Zero cleansing balm for sensitive skin I was legit in AWE of how glowing and hydrated my skin was after my first cleanse.
It was like I just had a very expensive facial.
This version for sensitive skin, in particular, is infused with seven natural herbs (rosemary, green tea, licorice extract, etc.) to help soothe the skin and to replenish moisture to your face. It doesn’t have any parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, alcohol or any other bad stuff and I also really love how quickly it melts into your skin – it goes from solid to oil so quick, which is also nice since it doesn’t make a mess!
How to use it: You apply a few scoops to your face and then gently massage it into your face and neck using your fingertips. Like I said, it melts in pretty fast and then you just rinse it off with water and boom. Done.
What do you guys think? Do you love cleansing balms as much as I do?
