Even if you don’t wear makeup- you’re still sweating, touching your face, and walking around in an envornment with pollutants that land on your skin. At the end of the day, you’re in need of an oil cleanse which has been in my routine for years after seeing how effective it is for completely removing dirt and impurities from the skin without drying it out the way some foaming cleansers can.
I’ve used olive, argan, grape seed, and dozens of other oils, but 100% Pure’s Blood Orange Cleansing Balm is probably my fave. It’s a buttery balm that melts into a thick oil when you rub it in. I use it all around my eyes to break down mascara which it does easily without burning or creating a film in my eyes where everything looks blurry, as well as all over my face to loosen dirt. Sometimes this is all I do to cleanse, but most of the time I use another cleanser after just because I’m a fan of the double cleanse for a really deep clean especially at night. My skin feels soft and looks hydrated and not dull like it can after a foaming cleanser. It’s just an awesome first step that gives my skin a head start in looking hydrated and radiant.
It’s also a natural formula using only Organic oils of Avocado, Coconut, Olive, and Beeswax, along with Blood Orange Essential Oil Fruit and Polyglyceryl-3 Palmitate (from coconuts which improves the feel of the balm) And that’s all.
If you’re on a hamster wheel of stripping your skin with a cleanser, then trying to add that moisture back with a ton of products, check out this balm, or another soothing oil to cleanse.
