[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] At £88, you’d expect this luxury cleansing balm to out-perform all other balms and to be fair, it will probably be the most softly textured, skin nourishing balm you’ve ever used. It’s absolute bliss on the skin and I cannot fault it, much as I tried!
The oils involved are macadamia, babassu, shea and mango formulated to the whippiest of all whippy textures. It’s the creme anglais to regular custard (it’s Bake Off tonight – I’m inspired) and transforms from the fluffy cloud to a light, but potent oil.
You don’t need this if you don’t have dry to very skin because that’s the type it will benefit most – if your complexion feels taut after cleansing, is parched on waking or at the end of the day, it is for you. It’s 100% treat territory for me but oh, what a treat. I’ve been dying to test it since it arrived in the post and it didn’t disappoint. It does have a smidge of fragrance that gives it a sort of gentle floral, clean washing kind of scent, so that’s something to bear in mind, but if you can feel a nip in the air and know it’s time to adjust your cleansing routine, it’s a thorough recommend. You need a tiny amount, so a little genuinely goes a long way. It’s HERE at John Lewis, non affiliate HERE.
