I love cleansing balms! Unfortunately, they can be pricey. This one from No7 costs £13 which, while not exactly being cheap, is pretty good for a cleansing balm. Also, Boots often have 3 for 2 offers or money off vouchers on No7. Anyway, is this product actually any good?
In short: yes. This is a wonderfully smooth and nourishing cleansing balm. The second ingredient listed is coconut oil which doesn’t shock me as it looks off-white like it and melts beautifully into an oil you can massage all over your face. It removes base makeup incredibly! When I use this I feel confident it has gotten all my makeup off my skin. It doesn’t remove eye makeup quite so well so I definitely say remove this separately, however, it is safe to rub over your eyes. I’ve not had any discomfort from doing this.
It is fragranced quite strongly but it’s a fresh, non-offensive scent. As well as coconut oil, this cleansing balm also contains some cocoa butter and grapeseed oil. It is a nourishing cleanser and not drying at all. I find it easy to remove using a damp cloth (one comes in the box with it) and it doesn’t leave any residue behind.
At £13 for a 125ml tub I think this cleansing balm offers good value for money compared to many other cleansing balms. You don’t need to use a huge amount each time so this tub should last a good amount of time; I’m still getting through my tub but I will try to remember to update this post once I’m finish with it and say roughly how long it lasted.
I am a big fan of this cleansing balm and would definitely recommend it.
