Thorough cleansing is the cornerstone of any skincare routine and cleansers come in myriad formulas – oil, water, foam, gel, cream – but have you considered a balm?
Balms are gentle, creamy cleansers that nourish the skin instead of stripping it – like some harsher scrubs do – and are amazing at removing all dirt on the skin. Most dissolve into oils or milks when they come into contact with water, so you can wash them off quickly without leaving any residue. For extra thorough removal, we like to use a muslin or face cloth – it buffs off dead skin cells so you get a deep clean and a gentle exfoliation in one go.
We’ve compiled a list of our go-to cleansing balms, so whether you’re trying one for the first time or looking for a new hero – this is the place to start.
