Why you need a Cleansing Balm in your Skincare Routine

Cleansing balms are usually made from oils and work by breaking down make up, grime, and SPF as a cleanser, but can also be used as a skin treatment to nourish and hydrate the skin. After using, skin doesn’t feel stripped of oils and dry, instead it feels soothed and soft. 

Cleansing with a balm helps to remove dirt and impurities from your skin, whilst also leaving the skin feeling moisturised and hydrated by building a natural barrier on the skin, reducing epidermal water loss, helping to avoid and reduce skin dehydration. Even better is that every time you use a cleansing balm to cleanse it feels like a relaxing facial (seriously you’ll feel more zen after using it!).   

Our Brilliant Balm, not only works as a cleanser, melting away even the most stubborn makeup, SPF and daily impurities, but also as a deeply nourishing treatment for the skin.

Wondering if the Brilliant Balm will work in your skincare routine?  

How does the Brilliant Balm work for people who want anti-ageing skincare?   

In a word – brilliantly! This product helps improve the skin’s natural barrier to prevent water loss, keeping skin hydrated, moisturised and plump due to the blend of oils that we have used to create this product, which include squalane (helps with skin suppleness, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin firmness).   

Oils in this balm include apricot oil, almond oil, rosehip oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil (high linoleic acid content) and sunflower oil which all condition the skin, soften the skin and are deeply hydrating and nourishing which give the skin a lovely healthy look.  

It also contains bisabolol which is skin conditioning and protects the skin against daily stresses.  

One of the main things as we age is the lack of moisture and plumpness to the skin, this balm will increase the skin’s hydration helping with the appearance, and as you massage it into the skin it gives oxygen, blood and nutrients to the surface which helps to plump the skin and make it look healthier and more youthful. 

How does the Brilliant Balm work for people with sensitive skin?   

Our Brilliant Balm has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin. This product is deeply hydrating, nourishing and gentle on the skin which really helps to soothe sensitive skin. 

Is the Brilliant Balm suitable for people with oily skin?  

Our Brilliant Balm has a rich, oil-based consistency. It has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin and is suited to help hydrate dry skin.   

It is important to note, that even if you are someone with oily skin then it is great to use and include an oil-based product into your routine, it can help balance out the sebum level and help the skin’s appearance. Sometimes people are scared to use oil-based products on their skin because they think they have an oily complexion, but it can actually do wonders to the skin, especially if you have oily/sensitive/irritated skin.  

Avoid too many products which strip the skin of its natural oils as it can in turn cause more oil, irritation, blemishes and problems. Our balm is wash and wipe off, so a great way of including oils to your skin a couple of times a week, or every day depending on your skin and routine.  

How does the Brilliant Balm work for people with problematic skin?  

It really depends on someone’s skin type, as we are all different in the concerns or issues we have with our skin. The great thing about this balm is it can either be left on the skin or removed. It is really gentle and deeply hydrating so will help many skin types.   

Is the Brilliant Balm suitable for someone with eczema/psoriasis?  

Yes, it is suitable for people with sensitive skin and so should work really well for people with eczema prone skin or psoriasis.
