I’m a big fan of cleansing balms. They always feel less harsh than foaming cleansers, and I like to leave them on for a while as a sort of face mask. Willow Organic Beauty’s Gentle Cleansing Balm is the only balm I’ve ever come across which comes in a pump dispenser.
I’m a big fan of pump dispensers – they mean klutzes like me can’t drop half a bottle down the plug mid-shower, plus it keeps everything nice and hygienic! The balm has a gorgeous, creamy consistency, and it’s a joy to use. Comfrey and Marigold in the formula cleanse and purify the skin without stripping it, and it removes all traces of makeup. This is perfect if you suffer from dry or sensitive skin, as it doesn’t leave my face feeling dried out once I’ve used it.
The cleanser costs £38.00 and is available here.
