How do you use Melting Cleansing Balm?
Begin with DRY skin. Remove a portion (about the size of an almond) of Balm from the jar with a small spatula. Never put wet fingers into your jar. Keeping a stash of new, disposable popsicle sticks (cut in half) nearby works great; wooden, coffee stir-sticks are great as well. Spread and warm the Balm evenly between your fingertips and then gently massage it over your entire face and neck in small circular motions; do this for one full minute getting into all of the nooks and crannies. This will ensure that the cleanser has fully softened and broken down the makeup and dirt on your skin. With your fingertips, apply water and keep massaging until the cleanser becomes white and milky. Keep massaging for another minute to thoroughly and completely emulsify; add more water as necessary to create a wet and slippery mixture on your face. Remove with a soft, warm, wet cloth and finish by rinsing with several handfuls of warm or tepid water. Gently pat your face dry with a soft towel. Celebrate your velvety skin! Awake to incredibly soft and hydrated skin by smoothing a very small amount of the balm onto moist skin as a night-time moisturizer. This will also work beautifully as a daytime moisturiser by applying a very small amount evenly to skin, followed up with a dab or spritz of our lavender or Manuka toner, which is then massaged and patted into the skin.
Who Needs This? Every single skin type can benefit from the use of a properly formulated, oil-based cleanser. It may seem counter-intuitive to use an oil cleanser on oily or acne-prone skin, but when carefully formulated, they can quite effectively help to balance oil production, prevent clogged pores and help reduce break-outs.
