There’s been a lot of hype around this product – it’s been two years in the formulating so there’s a huge amount of expectation. I tried it today and to be honest it really does tick all the cleansing balm boxes you could want and then some. It’s not too greasy, as some are, and yet very malleable on the skin so you can really give yourself a good facial massage with it while cleansing. It’s got the ‘touchability’ factor that every single product hopes they’ll get – and by that I mean, the texture is such that you actually want to move it about your face and massage it around. That’s quite a neat trick.
It promises to soften and smooth – yep. It promises to nourish the skin – yes, I really think so, and it promises to effectively remove make-up – this one I can’t really say yet as I was wearing very little when I used it.
What I like about it is that Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm uses oils grown in the UK; geranium, lavender, chamomile amongst many (I’d like to stand in that field!) others as well as scented rose wax. All in all, it’s absolutely destined for the beauty hall of fame. No doubt.
It’s launching this month for £39.50 (I think that is steep, to be honest). And, the final box ticking is that they didn’t use one of those sad little muslins that come with many balms.. I hate them. Instead there’s a nice white flannel.

This looks really good I am looking at getting a new face cleansing rountine might have a look at this collection xxx
I have this but haven’t used properly yet, only once. I love the low melting point. Some balms take some warming between the hands first. This melts as soon as its in your hand. I agree it gives a fantastic massage. The benefits of an oil cleanser but the convienence of a balm and emulsifys well. I love the smell too and of course the fact some of the oils are responsibily sourced from British farmers! Completely agree about the cloth too. I am so over muslin cloths. Emma Hardie, Tropic and now Elemis have the right out idea! X
This sounds nice but I refuse to pay almost £40 for a cleanser, I just think thats too steep when there are so many other good cleansing products out there!
