6 reasons to try a cleansing balm this winter
Your skin just found its new best friend
Beauty Crew Contributor / June 07 2017
Cleansing balms are by no means the latest skin care innovation, but they should be on your radar right now because they’re perfect for the change of season (which often brings with it dry and flaky skin). They are a great addition to your winter skin care routine because they don’t require excessive rinsing like traditional cleansers; simply apply the product, massage it into your face and wipe off the excess with a damp cloth. This technique also means balms are super nourishing for dehydrated winter complexions. So why not try one ASAP? Here are a few of our favourites.
16 Brand Peach Soda Cleansing Balm
This totally fuss-free formula melts in upon contact with skin to dissolve all makeup and dirt. It’s made with juicy peach extract to deliver a gorgeous smell and deep hydration.
Bobbi Brown Extra Balm Rinse
Specifically made for extra dry skin, this impurity-removing balm can be used once a day as a conditioning treatment or also at night when skin needs an extra boost of hydration.
Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm
This lightweight formula changes from a solid balm into a silky oil on application. Non-greasy and perfect for all skin types, it works to remove eye and face makeup as well as sunscreen.
Diptyque Nourishing Cleansing Balm
Made with a mix of sweet almond oil, beeswax and hazel seed oil, as well as ylang ylang and geranium, this balm can be used as a cleanser or a mask.
If traditional cleansers are more your thing, here is the beauty editor approved list of cleansers to try for yourself.
