“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!

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!!
I adore this face balm. I have very sensitive/combination/acne prone skin and am always concerned about new products breaking my skin out. But this just leaves my face feeling soothed, clean, and moisturised. I usually just use it as directed, but also enjoy leaving it on my face for longer periods while in the bath etc. for a nourishing mask.
Love this cleansing balm! It’s brilliant for taking my eye makeup off and keeps my skin glowing and soft. It’s really great and lasts ages. Give it a go you won’t be disappointed
This cleansing balm is out of this world!! Smells absolutely amazing and is like having a facial every morning!
Great cleansing balm. Melts away my makeup leaving my skin clean soft and fresh. ❤️
I love this cleansing balm. For the last 6 months of so I started experiencing acne and tried so many different products but nothing really helped that well. Once I got this cleansing balm my skin started to see results within just a couple of days. I'm honestly so impressed I am so so so happy with the results. My skin has been so smooth and stays so moisturised after using this along with the facial oil. It also smells amazing. I love it!
There is nothing I don’t love about this cleansing balm. The texture and light scent are just lovely and I feel like I’m really treating my skin when I use it. It’s doesn’t feel greasy or heavy it’s is just beautifully silky and light on your skin. I could stand and massage it into my face for days! My skin can be very combination and sensitive but this balm is amazingly hydrating and gentle. My skin has never felt softer than after using this balm. It has calmed my irritated skin on more than one occasion and I feel like paired with the soothing mask it has really helped even my skin tone. Genuinely couldn’t be without it now! This is one of those “Hero” products that people with tricky skin dream about.
LOVE IT - feels fantastic and it removes all makeup easily (not that I've been wearing any this year!!)
Love this cleansing balm, use every night and wash off with muslin cloth. Relaxing scent. Skin is much improved especially since having lots of breakouts from wearing a mask all day at work.
This is my 2nd or 3rd pot of cleansing balm. I love it, it's not too greasy and smells delicious. I use it first thing in the morning or in the evening if I've not had make-up in the day and it cleans my skin beautifully leaving it soft and dewy and not at all tight. This plus the facial oil are the products I keep going back to again and again.
