Battle of the Balms | Round 1 | Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel

Monday, 11 May 2015

I'm the type of person where when I like something I really like it. Insert listening to my favourite song hundreds of times until I get sick of it/binge watching an entire series of a tv show etcetera. etcetera. However, my love affair with skin care (in particular balms) is never this series I'm going to share with you guys my top balms that are all beautifully decadent in their own way.

Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel

Ok so this first pick isn't technically a balm...more of a gel,oil,milk hybrid but it is just too good not to share. After a long day the last thing you want to be doing is removing your makeup with a luxurious cleanser right? wrong! The Clarins pure melt cleanser is the best possible mix of luxury, effectiveness and time saving. This is a fabulously unusual product completely unlike anything I have ever tried.

Like your usual balm you apply it to dry skin. However (this is the exciting bit) it starts off as a gel, then melts (haha! see what the clever people at Clarins did there) in to an oil once massaged on to the skin, then while you're removing it with water it turns in to a milky cleanser. Removing all the awkward mess of facial oils.

The best thing is although everyone's skin reacts differently...this product is suitable for all skin types. But if you have sensitive skin Clarins do adorable mini tester sizes if you ask nicely so you can see how your skin reacts before buying the full size fella.

The second best thing is a very small amount goes a long way...meaning this bottle has lasted me over a year! I'm sure this breaks some of the beauty blogger commandments but oh well :)

So value for money: yes, luxurious: yes, effective:'s a winner

Stay tuned to see what's next in the series

What is your favourite balm?
