Cleansing Balms

My favourite and the current cleansing balm is take the day off from Clinique. I love his stuff. The way it melts into your skin and really helps melt the makeup off your skin. I was worried about using it around the eyes bit but actually, recently I have started using it around the eyes and it didn't irritate or give me any problems. Its is on the pricy side however the size will last you so long. I would say over 6 months. so that's worth it. Here are the details for this cleansing balm.

There are many more brands that do cleansing balms. It's all about trying and seeing what works with your skin plus what's in your budget. I would defo recommend investing in a cleansing balm as there are many days you just don't feel like washing off your makeup and this is such a nice relaxing way to removing your make up as well as having your face clean without using water. Great to use on a daily basis.
