Cleansing balms may be my favourite thing right now, filling up my bathroom shelf quicker than England got kicked out of the World Cup. (Sorry.) However, this little beauty bar of goodness may just be the thing to shake up my routine. Formulated with asses milk, soothing chamomile and sweet smelling marshmallow plant, Baby Face is a revolution in skincare – we’re all so used to complex formulas, scientific ingredients and swanky packaging, that something so simple can often be overlooked. The brainchild of Kirstie Garrett, the product was developed after she stumbled upon a donkey farm in France after re-locating to the Basque area. After negotiating with the farmer and agreeing to ‘sponsor’ a donkey in return for a quantity of milk to experiment with, the Baby Face beauty bar was born. It’s not only 100% natural and palm-oil free, but leaves skin feeling supple and bright after only one use.

Asses milk is naturally rich in skin conditioning proteins, vitamins and lipids, making the bar great for cleansing without leaving a tight or stripping sensation on the skin. Combined with essential oils, shea butter, marshmallow and coconut oil, the result is a super creamy bar that can be worked into a rich lather between the hands. You can cut the bar into lots of smaller pieces for ease of use, massaging a coin-sized amount with warm water and working it into a rich creamy substance. It can then be directly applied to skin to remove impurities, SPF, makeup and general dirt that has built up over the course of the day.
Although slightly harder to use than a normal cleansing balm (which requires a simple ‘dip finger in’ and you’re done process,) the benefits of donkey’s milk are well known and could really help provide a radiant and glowing complexion. I love the idea of this brand and I love the feel the product provides; it takes some getting used to, but when you have a bit more time this is a fab discovery to use. It’s a lot lighter than cleansing balms and creams, as well as being totally natural, giving a great big tick to those of you concerned about what you’re putting on your skin.
The Baby Face Beauty Bar is available exclusively online via My Showcase, priced £16.95.
