“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 award winning 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 love this cleansing balm. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling parched after using it. I wear minimal make up and SPF and this balm removes it very effectively. I also use the facial oil which feels and smells wonderful on my skin. I’ve purchased the balm online and both the balm and oil from a local shop in Bruntsfield.
All time favourite
I've used so many cleansers but nothing comes close to this one. It removes make up without any effort and leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh. Using a hot cloth to remove it makes the whole experience feel like I've had a trip to the spa.
Go to cleanser
I have been using this for over a year now and wouldn’t use anything else. It doesn’t make my skin feel tight and effectively removes make up.
Love this product - it smells amazing and is very issue to apply to your face. I use it in combination with konjac sponge, and my face feels clean and nourished. One more thing - I absolutely love the packaging! Thank you.
I love this. It smells amazing, feels amazing, leaves my skin clean but not tight, looks beautiful on the shelf and is made in Scotland so has low air miles. What's not to love?
The best product by far!
I’m on my second tub of this now and I couldn’t live without it. I don’t wear much makeup but I do wear waterproof mascara and this is the perfect way to remove it without loosing my lashes or feeling like my eyes are sore from rubbing it off - which use to happen when I used makeup wipes. My skin is always clean and silky smooth afterwards. And it smells amazing. So easy to use - I take it everywhere! Highly highly recommend.
Love this product
This product is great for cleansing and smells Devine - an at home spa experience.
Delicious cleaning balm
Super soft and gentle on the skin. I love the smell, so relaxing. Great to leave it as a mask treatment too.
From the first time I used this its become a firm favourite. Skin feels so soft and clean. I have become a fan of Amaranthine..... the customer service is second to none
Beautiful cleansing balm!
Have purchased this cleansing balm three times now and don't see ever switching. It feels really luxurious when applied and melts into skin. I have pcos skin and prone to big breakouts, and this followed by a second cleanse and then the beauty oil, has made such a difference. It also smells so lovely; feels really relaxing to apply before bed - like a little facial!!
