Considering that Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm is one of the best cleansers I have ever used, it is surprising that I have not written about it earlier.
This cleanser has a lovely formula that works great for an evening facial massage, it is not greasy or tacky, just a nice balmy texture. The product doesn’t have a strong overpowering scent, it smells of camomile to me.
I personally take off my makeup with a micellar water first, and then use this lush cleanser, as I’d rather massage my skin with it, instead of taking off my mascara (which you can obviously do, if you want to).
It works great for sensitive skin type, leaving it smooth and soothed thanks to camomile and Omega oils. I have very dry skin, and it doesn’t feel tight or dried out after the Soothing Cleansing Balm.
Although you get only 100 ml it actually lasts a long time, as a little goes a long way. So, if you are looking for a great cleansing balm which comes in a nice tube, not a jar – this is a an option to consider. Available here for £38 and here for $59.
