Everything about Darphin’s new Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood is ultra, ultra luxurious. It’s an unfamiliar consistency that must have brought about some creativity challenges back at the lab, being somewhere between a traditional balm and honey…it literally the smoothest balm I’ve ever come across. Add water, and it turns to a milky emulsion. It is formulated with a host of skin-loving essential oils and is the perfect consistency to massage into skin; it crosses a line from being a regular cleanser because you do end up enjoying the feeling of it on your skin so much you cannot help but massage – and that’s great for complexions! It smells gorgeously expensive – that’s probably because it is (embarrassingly, I can’t remember exactly how much but think from memory its nearly £50). Although I don’t like wash-off cleansers normally, this one is exceptional.
