Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm Review

If you are a regular reader, you know that I try to feature a lot of cleansing balms and melting cleansers. I find that these work the best for very dry and sensitive skin. And if  you have a similar skin  type – hopefully  find those posts helpful. Here is the first round-up of such cleansers, and there will be a second one with time.

Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm review rave

Today I want to share about  the Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm, which was featured in my February favourites. And it is definitely one of the best cleansers I have ever used.

Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel Review. Rave

I have promised this review a long time ago, so here it is finally. It is one of my favourite cleansers which is Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel (£19/$32.50 for 125 ml) which is a melt-in-gel. It is similar to my other favourites: Elemis Melting Cleansing Gel and Terre d’Oc Milky Make-up Remover Oil.

As all the cleansers of this type, I massage it for some time and then wash off with warm water. The gentle gel, which also smells amazing, turns into milk and removes all traces of grim and impurities without drying out my face.

My skin feels clean, soft and ready for toner and moisturizer.

I adore it for my dry skin,
