Cleansing balms are possibly my favourite thing. Screw glossy and fancy lip products, shimmering eyeshadows or on-trend nail colours, for me it’s all about a fabulous cleanser that removes my makeup in one swoop. A great cleanser can mean the difference between clean and sparkling beautiful skin; removing the day’s build-up, dirt and impurities is essential for not only healthy looking skin, but in the fight against ageing too. (Have a little read of my post about why removing your makeup before bed is so important.) I’m long been a fan of cleansing balms and creams that I can really get to work on the surface of my skin, massaging the concoction deep into the surface to ensure everything is removed effectively. However, I’ve recently been introduced to a cleanser that’s revolutionised my routine and the way I see makeup removal. Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser is a luxurious jelly that melts to lift even the most stubborn of makeup, while leaving my skin feeling plump and smooth.
The ultra hydrating 3-in-1 cleanser transforms from a gel texture to a luxurious oil upon contact with the skin, evolving again into a hydrating milk when mixed with a little water. It effortlessly moves around the face, melting away impurities and makeup to leave skin feeling clean but nourished. The formula is rich in
Vitamin C, Rose Hip and Virgin Cherry Oils, to brighten, repair and hydrate the skin simultaneously. The combination of beneficial ingredients not only supports natural collagen, neutralises free radicals and reduces redness, but is rich in vitamins and essential nutrients. It feels amazing on the skin, leaving it feeling thoroughly cleansed without stripping the surface or leaving your face feeling tight. After only one cleanse skin feels fabulous and pretty much all traces of makeup are removed, including layer upon layer of mascara and tonnes of black eyeshadow – something most other cleansers fail to remove effectively. Although it’s not the cheapest, this is a fabulous product that I’ll definitely be repurchasing when I get to the bottom of the tub. Have you tried this little jelly wonder product?
Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser is available online priced £24.00.
