Melting Cleansing Balm™

The Guardian tested and awarded this "King of Cleansing Balms". It was No1 best seller in John Lewis skin care. 

It literally melts from balm to oil,  to make quick work of removing make-up, grime, SPF and pollution.  Either rinse off or, get a more thorough cleanse by using a muslin or cleansing cloth.  Your skin will be amazingly soft, hydrated and you will love the comfort and glow.  Every skin type, age, race and gender, will get beautifully clean skin without any waxy residue or tightness...just great skin.

Natural Sweet Almond Oil ensures all, especially dry skin, is hydrated. Omega 3 from Echium Oil calms sensitive skin and acne prone skin.  Mangosteen extract provides anti-oxidant protection and the aromas of our Signature Essence Blend will lift your spirits, so you feel happier.

So, ditch the wipes and keep micellar water for festivals only! You will never want to sleep in your make-up again!
  • No time-wasting ‘warming’ because we use nourishing natural oils rather than bulking with waxes (often petrolatum) or beeswax (animal source).
  • Our squeezable tube is more hygienic than finger-dipping jars. It’s travel friendly and more sustainable.
  • It multi-tasks for traveling light. Use it as a cleanser, body moisturiser, pre-shampoo conditioner, hydrating face mask, shaving cream and lip balm.

How To Use:


Step 1.
Apply Melting Cleansing Balm to dry skin & massage into skin as it melts away spf, grime, pollution, oil & make up.
Step 2.
Add a little water & continue to massage. The balm emulsifies into a milk so it doesn't leave a waxy residue.
Step 3.
Wipe skin with a Daily Cleansing Cloth or simply rinse with water to remove.

When creating this product, I imagined you - like me - walking up the stairs around midnight, absolutely pooped and thinking "I wish I had taken my make up off at 9pm when I came up for a wee. All I want to do now is fall into bed". What could I do to make your cleanse more pleasurable and more practical/time saving, without sacrificing effectiveness and efficiency?

It had to be super effective and hydrating. It had to be easy to remove and not leave a dry or waxy or oily residue but had to feel soft and velvety.

Next, pleasure. I wanted you to come out of the bathroom with an "Aah! that was not so bad". So I added the scent of my Signature Essence Blend to further engage your senses and it has ingredients that are said to uplift confidence too.

Finally, I had to be able to ensure that my cleansing balm is compared favourably on performance.

I hope you love it.
