Evening Cleanse (step 2) …

Balm/Oil Cleanser:

After removing most eye make up, then on to the face. This is where the oil/balm cleansers come in… And my favourite bit. As much as I love putting make up on – balms and oils mean I love taking it off too!

These are the absolute best balm cleansers that remove makeup. I always DOUBLE cleanse in the evening. I use a basic balm first to get rid of make up/dirt then follow with a more expensive/luxurious/my favourite one.

So basic ones first:

Clinique Take The Day Of Balm -£20 allbeauty or Boots.

This is amazing stuff and my 4th tub. It’s so so simple, no fragrance (perfect for sensitive skins/red/angry). It has the look/feel of lard but it is AMAZING at removing makeup. No nasties (which is unusual for Clinique). Tub lasts an age – you only need a penny size to do your whole face. Doesn’t sting eyes. I love it! I’ve had this tub since July and have just finished it today. 

TBS Chamomile Cleansing Butter -£12.  Again, lovely lovely stuff. V similar to Clinique. Actually more expensive per gram. Slight scent. Still highly recommended.

Others I rate (not pictured):

Una Brenan 15 pounds. Rose Cleansing oil. Boots – Lovely stuff. Been through 2 bottles of this stuff. Fab at removing makeup. 

So, once the makeup/grime/dirt is gone, on to the second cleanse (which should be the luxurious one)…

The Elemis Balm is pricey 40 pounds – quite heavily scented. Won’t be to everyone’s taste. But is luxurious. Perfect for really taking time to massage (I spend a good minute massaging face). Good slip.…. but I prefer…

OSKIA perfect cleanser – £32.50. Love this. Thick balm. Smells lush. Perfect slip. Sensitive on eyes. Emulsifies when water added to rinse off.

Emma Hardie Moringa Balm 36 pounds Again, lovely, luxurious balm. Smells amazing. 

REN Rosa Centifolia No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm 19 pounds on offer in M&S right now,Beauty+_PLABeauty+–%3E+Skincare+–%3E+Cleansers+&+Toners+–%3E+Face+Wash+&+Cleanser_M&S+Rosa+Centifolia™+No.1+Purity+Cleansing+Balm+100ml&ef_id=VBXw5QAAAObi-U3M:20150406002746:s

Always, always apply to a dry face – no matter what it says on the tub/tube. Always, always rinse with a warm flannel several times. I use a clean one every single day – one does am/pm clean, then on to the washing pile. Fresh one the next morning. 

Budget balm cleanser:

Organic cold pressed Virgin coconut oil. The big jar cost £6 from amazon and I’ve had it a year. Amazing value. Amazing oil/balm.
RMS coconut oil balm -£12 cultbeauty. Exactly the same as the other jar but a more attractive bathroom version!! Not worth the money personally. I use this little jar as a lip balm.

Merumaya Cleansing Balm – 15.50. This was the cheapest cleansing balm I could find that wasn’t coconut oil. It is amazing for the price (feels like a 30-40pounds product). The whole brand are excellent really.

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil 10 pounds – This stuff is an absolute BARGIN! Makes skin SO soft and removes makeup perfectly. Love it! tmcampid=38&tmad=c&tmplaceref=c%7C&tmclickref=&utm_source=google_PLA&utm_medium=sem&utm_campaign=What%27s%20Hot&utm_term=&utm_content=What%27s%20Hot&kpid=97950&gclid=CLyQ-tiz4MQCFcPKtAodmDoAtA
