Finally I think I can say I have found a cleanser that I have fallen in love with. I had always wanted to try cleansing balms but I certainly did not fancy forking out for the likes of Emma Hardie, just in case I hated it. The Botantics version is much more purse friendly at only £8.99, even better I bought this on offer for around £6.
Before using this I did a little reading up and apparently back in 2012 the balm cleanser went through the repackage and gained a whole new list of ingredients. From what I can gather the price went up and there was a distinct increase in the amount of cheaper ingredients used to make the product so original fans weren't happy - I felt the same with the eye make-up remover. It was PERFECT before but now I hate it and haven't bought the new one. Being as I had never used the original I had nothing to compare this to, but I would be interested to know if any of you used the old one?
I keep the balm on the side of my bath so when I am having a soak I can get to work with this and spend the time massaging it into my face and neck before removing with a flannel. I find that this balm hydrates my skin like no other without leaving this oily residue. The balm is also a beast at removing eye make-up and the bright lipsticks that I love to wear. It's a big hit and I think I may have found "the one".
Have you used the Botanics Cleansing Balm?
