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.
