The difference between a cleansing balm and an oil is that I find an oil takes longer to work into the skin and is messier, whereas a balm really penetrates the skin and you can really massage it in. It is really important to massage in with your fingers or a tool as this helps to stimulate the skin and to thoroughly cleanse, especially in the evenings to get rid of all the makeup and pollution from the day.

De Mamiel Restorative Cleansing Balm - £54
WHO
The brand was founded by aromatherapist Annee de Mamiel after chemotherapy and radiation treatment dried out her skin.
KEY INGREDIENTS

WHY I LOVE IT
This is my favourite cleanser at the moment, smells mesmerising and removes all traces of makeup.

Botanics Cleansing Balm - £8.99
WHO
A Boots-owned brand which, as the name suggests, uses natural ingredients inspired by Kew Gardens.
KEY INGREDIENTS
Infused with organic rosehip extract, this cleansing balm leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth.
WHY I LOVE IT
A nourishing balm that melts into the skin and removes all traces of makeup. This compares to some of my favourite high-end balms like those from Eve Lom and de Mamiel. This left my skin feeling very clean and fresh.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm - £10
KEY INGREDIENTS
Camomile, proven to be highly effective for soothing sensitive skin with it’s anti-irritant properties.
WHY I LOVE IT
This feels thinner than the Botanics and would be better suited to a more sensitive skin type over the Botanics one.
