PRICE & AVAILABILITY
This moisture replenish Facial Cleansing Balm comes in a 75ml tube. It has a rich blend of fatty acids to soothe dry and inflamed skin. The fresh Strawberry Cells purify and tone for a fresh complexion. The Orange Peel Powder stimulates new cell renewal. The Aloe calms the skin and the Essential Oils repair.
I have developed a new addiction to cleansing balms. They give such a clean, rejuvenating feel to the skin. One such addiction is the Elemental Herbology Purify & Soothe Cleansing Balm. It is a perfect addition to one's nightime skincare routine. Especially if you come home with a face full of makeup, feeling all heavy and tired. I love to use it after I have cleaned off my makeup with facial wipes. It does a great job as a double cleanser. The Argan Oil in it tackles any dryness and congestion.
I massage it all over my face and wipe off with a damp muslin cloth. It leaves my skin very soft, supple and hydrated. It really removes all traces of makeup and I can feel it has dug out any deep-down impurities. The bitter Orange Peel Powder also provides slight exfoliation which is very gentle yet helps in removing any flaky, dead skin.
All in all, this is a very refreshing, exfoliating, gentle cleansing balm. The only issue I have with is the packaging. This balm comes in a squeezable tubes and all of you who have used cleaning balms might know they are bit hard and waxy in texture and are supposed to melt with the warmth of the palms. Therefore, squeezing out this particular balm is a nuisance. Especially in winters it hardens and I am practically fighting with the tube. Super-inconvenient! I so wish it comes out in a pot.
A beautiful cleansing balm to pamper the skin with. But it is a real chore to squeeze the balm out of the tube's not-so-big hole.
