Product Focus: Cleansing Balms

I double cleanse in the evenings to ensure that all traces of spf and or make up are removed so that my skin is perfectly clean and ready to absorb skincare. I always use either a cleansing balm or oil as my first step. If I have time on my hands I love to indulge in the ritual of smoothing a silky balm all over a dry face and thoroughly massaging in before emulsifying with water and removing with a damp muslin cloth or flannel. This method is super effective at melting off makeup, gently exfoliates and feels really decadent. Watch the video below for my thoughts on four of my favourites:
