Now, for some rapid fire info on why *literally* everyone can benefit from adding a cleansing balm into their skincare routine.
1. Cleansing balms remove makeup and SPF.
We’ve already gone through the science of how cleansing balms work.
But we need to talk about just how well a face balm cleanser can break down even the most stubborn long-wearing makeup, too.
Think: Full coverage foundations. Water-proof mascara. Long-wearing red lipstick. Smudge-proof eyeliner.
Even matte finish mineral sunscreens or thick SPFs.
If you can wear it on your face, a cleansing balm can remove it.
2. Cleansing balms won’t irritate your skin.
At least, we can guarantee our Alpha-H cleansing balms won’t.
Our cleansing balms contain a blend of natural oils that mimic your skin’s own protective barrier, meaning it can break down and remove oily substances, without messing with your skin’s natural, slightly acidic pH levels.
They leave skin feeling soft and supple - never dry, tight or stripped.
3. Cleansing balms remove excess natural oils, too.
Not only will a balm cleanser get rid of makeup, sunscreen and general grime from the day, but it can also bind to and remove excess sebum.
Feels counterintuitive, but massaging an oily wax-like balm cleanser into the skin will actually help to lift the oil blocking your pores and contributing to blemishes and blackheads.
4. Everyone can use our cleansing balms.
Yes, even oily skin-havers.
And those with sensitised skin.
Thanks to the lipid and surfactant formula, Alpha-H cleansing balms are suitable for all skin types, including oily, sensitised, blemish-prone and rosacea-prone.
But not all cleansing balms can claim this, so be sure to look into the formula of a cleansing balm before use, and patch test if in doubt.
5. You can use it as a face mask.
Another thing that makes our cleansing balm extra spesh?
It doubles as a hydrating face mask.
And who doesn’t love a multi-tasking beauty product, right?
Glide a generous layer of the melty, buttery formula over skin and leave for 10 minutes for intense hydration.
We dare you not to become obsessed with how soft your skin will feel afterwards.
6. Cleansing balms just feel really good.
Not only are our cleansing balms really effective, but they also feel really good on the skin.
And smell really good.
And look really good on your bathroom shelf.
You get the idea.
