“It feels like I’m giving my skin the biggest treat every evening” Katie N
A gentle balm that cleanses the skin and removes make-up with ease (even waterproof mascara) and is suitable for all skin types. The balm has a lovely creamy texture and melts into your skin on contact. The blend of aromatic essential oils smell like a spa and can help you to relax and unwind at the end of the day.
Cleansing oils remove make-up and draw dirt, sebum, and pollution away from the skin. Unlike harsh cleansers, it will not strip away your skin’s own natural oils. Result? Clean, soft, smooth skin with no tightness or dryness. You may even feel like you don’t need to moisturise! We do recommend just a few drops of our face oil - it’s the perfect finishing touch to your evening skincare ritual.
Our cleansing balm contains a blend of Apricot, Coconut, Castor and Papaya oils plus skin softening and nourishing Mango butter. Papaya contains the fruit enzyme Papain which is a completely natural chemical exfoliant, very gently dissolving dead skin cells to leave skin bright and fresh. Unsure if this will suit your skin? Why not try one of our mini sized cleansing balms first 🙂
Gently but firmly massage a small amount of balm onto your face and neck, concentrating on problem areas like dry patches and areas of congestion. The balm will turn into oil on contact with your skin and will dissolve make-up, dirt and oil and draw it away from your skin. Take a face cloth or muslin cloth and wet it with hand-hot water. Wring out and use to gently wipe away the cleanser. Repeat the removal procedure until all traces of the cleanser are gone.
For an even deeper cleanse, apply the hand-hot flannel to your face for 1-2 minutes before wiping away the cleanser. The steam will open up the pores and give your skin a ‘steam clean’. Lie down and relax for a couple of minutes while you do this!

I’m on my third jar now. I love this balm. It’s easy to use, smells divine and gets rid of all the grubbiness. Love the fact that’s in glass jars not plastic and a little goes a long way so lasts a while. Very happy customer!
Daily Treat - Amazing!
The smell and texture of the balm are so lovely. My skin is left feeling really clean and hydrated. My acne has improved greatly.
So many rave reviews for this cleanser so when I ordered another facial oil I thought I would give it a go. It does not disappoint, I absolutely love it. Not only does it smell incredible but it really delivers - you only need a tiny amount and it just melts into your skin. It's a pleasure to use and removes every trace of make up whilst leaving your skin lovely and supple. A treat to use every evening and such good value for money as - personally I think it performs better than some of the high end balm cleansers. Just love AMARANTHINE x
Replaced my Elemis cleanser
Really removes any make-up and leaves skin feeling soft. It also smells AMAZING!
I love this cleansing balm - I look forward to getting ready for bed and using it. The whole process is wonderful: releasing the amazing relaxing smell as I apply it, then the warm water to rinse it off feels like I’m wiping the day away ready for a good sleep. I’ve had several jars of this now and I won’t be changing my routine any time soon!
Loved the product. Gave a sample to my daughter who also raved about it.
Love this balm - so easy to use and has made a huge difference to my skin!
It’s my second pot so it is now on my essentials list
The dreamiest product!
Feels amazing, smells amazing! It feels like i’m giving my skin the biggest treat every evening, I just love this product and how it makes my skin feel and look! I use alongside the face oil every evening and it does wonders for my extremely acne prone skin
Really pleased with this.
The cleansing balm has become an essential part of my evening facial routine. A little goes a long way so I don’t have to use too much. I then remove it with a warm muslin cloth or bamboo face wipes before applying the Amaranthine oil as my overnight moisturiser. My skin feels really smooth. It smells delicious too.
