"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?

Start by putting a cleansing balm into a tube so it easily squeezes out and is portable. One that does not need warming in the fingers, or takes a lot to spread over the face and to remove all the leftover residue. That saved 45 precious seconds on a cleanse and in a year that adds up to over half a day of sleep time, or if you wear face make up, allows you to do a double cleanse in the same time as a regular single cleanse.

So, it had to come out of the tube and easily massage into the skin - that is where the 'Melting' bit came in. It had to be super effective and hydrating which is where the Sweet Almond Oil, Echium Oil and Mangosteen came in. It had to be easy to remove and not leave a dry or waxy or oily residue but had to feel soft and velvety - that's where the addition of water turn it into a milk came in.

It is designed to be used with Daily Cleansing Cloths™ but if you are in a hurry, a bit worse for wear, do not have a clean cloth to hand or feeling a bit lazy, you can rinse it off with just water and your skin will feel great.

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

Finally, price. I had to be able to do it and ensure that mine not only compared favourably on performance, but that it would be at least half the price of leading cleansing balms on the market and it is about 40% of the cost of some popular ones.

I hope you love it.
