I’m not sure about you, but in Edinburgh, temperatures have taken a sudden plunge. Where a week or two ago, I could run around in a sweater, now I have to grab a parka. As a result, I’ve been trying to keep as much moisture in my skin as possible.
One of my tactics has been to introduce Boots Botanics’ Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm into my regime. Packaged in a simple little white screw top jar, the balm is made with 97% organic ingredients, and it feels seriously premium to use. Every evening, I take a small amount of the balm in between my fingers, warm it up a little, and work it into my face. I pay close attention to areas like my eyelashes and eyebrows, as it gets makeup off incredibly easily.
After working the balm into my face for a minute or so, I use a warm, wet, clean flannel, and take everything off. I finish off my cleansing routine with a few swipes of Micellar Water. With ingredients including rosehip, the cleansing balm leaves skin feeling soft and smooth, and, most importantly, it locks moisture in. I don’t have to wake up with parched skin, and it eradicates every sign of makeup – no more waking up with mascara on my pillow!
Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleanser is priced at £8.99 and is available here.
