How to use
Massage 2-3 pumps directly onto the face, neck and décolletage and add a few drops of warm water to emulsify. Remove with a gentle cotton cloth, taking extra care around the delicate eye area.
Can also be used a pre cleanse to remove stubborn make-up or left on as a 10 minute moisture mask.
Reapply as a beauty balm at night to clean skin, specifically to any areas requiring additional hydration and TLC.
Can also be used as a shaving balm for men. Simply emulsify with a little water. The oil will improve razor glide and protect the skin from razor burn and shaving irritation. Rinse off afterwards with tepid water.
I had this in a travel size (I believe from a Goody Bag around Christmas). It lasted me well into spring given I use several cleansers. This came at a time of hormonal acne while breastfeeding and for a few months, I absolutely had to cleanse evenings and mornings, where normally I don't cleanse every morning.
I totally could with this. It is super gentle, leaves the skin refreshed and plump, never strips of moisture, and smells DIVINE (of roses).
I definitely will repurchase once I finish the cleansers I use now.
It will likely be my every other morning cleanse, it felt a bit too precious (and not as potent as my beloved Moringa balm) to scrub off makeup with it. It might be a second step if you double cleanse.
Love this balm! I have tried different balms as I like to double-cleanse and this balm is really a gem! It is all I would want from a cleansing balm - it takes my make up off (I use micellar water to take my mascara off my eyes anyway as I have very sensitive eyes, I never use balms for my eyes), it smells great but not too much as to annoy you with the smell, it's never broken me out and it emulsifies well - perfect!!!!
I read great reviews about this cleanser online but I was very disappointed when I used it. The cleanser smells lovely, however, it stays on the surface of the skin and hence doesn’t melt make up off (even if I double cleanse). I’ve also now gone from having clear skin to having breakouts. I have since gone back to the Clinique cleanser balm.
Love this product! Melts all my makeup away and smells amazing. I love using it at night as part of my night cleansing and the refreshed feeling it leaves you with. I recommend using this after removing heavy eye-makeup with a dedicated remover to ensure the best result.
I really rate this cleanser, it smells divine and feels luxurious on your skin. It gets rid of all my make up and doesn’t break me out in spots. I will definitely be purchasing again.
I have tried many cleansers due to having sensitive, combi skin and this is the best along with Niod Sanskrit Saponins but the two could not be more different. This is a mildly rose scented gentle balm which is just a joy to use. I like to savour the moisturising feel of it and use it as a second cleanse in the evening and a first cleanse in the morning. In the morning I massage it on then step into the shower just patting off the excess when I step out.
This is simply amazing. It's like washing your face with moisturizer, there is no other way to explain it. I have normal skin, with a dry T-zone and this feels like butter on my face. It has a slight rosy scent but nothing too strong. After using it, my skin never drags and it feels so soft and moisturized. Highly recommend.
I just love this balm. It smells great, so soft and leaves my skin so hydrated and clean.
I've loved other products from Alpha H, I love the balancing cleanser and couldn't wait to give this a try as I like a balm to melt off make up. I was just so disappointed, it doesn't have enough slip to it, it feels like it's dragging across the skin unless you use so much product, and even then it doesn't dissolve my mascara. It emulsifies well, and I flannel it off to avoid any residue, but I need a second cleanse... to actually get rid of the rest of my make up! It does smell lovely I guess.
Not for oily skin
This cleanser smells great but is rubbish if you have oily skin...skin doesn’t feel clean after using it and doesn’t remove makeup very well...it is also not really a balm it’s quite runny definitely not worth the cost.
Wonderful for problem skin
I have always had great skin - until my baby arrived, and I experienced my first acne-breakouts during breastfeeding.
After desperately trying to cure it for more than 1 month, I found my way to go:
Two daily cleanses (where up until now I had only used cold water in the morning and reserved proper cleansers for nighttime). I use this cleanser religiously in the morning. It smells lovely of rose, and together with other products has saved my skin.
Breakouts now are fewer and disappear within 5-7 days, completely.
(My full routine: This cleanser in the morning, 2-3 times followed by La Roche Posay Efficlar spot treatment and 2-in-1 cream; every other day, I use my regular Vitamin C or peptide treatments in the morning.
Evening: Another proper cleanse, often with Moringa Balm Emma Hardie, Eve Lom cleanser etc. 3-4 times a week Retinol by Indeed Labs; May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon - horribly expensive, but overnight as made a great improvement to my textured skin clearing it up within one application almost entirely. 1-2 times a week good Genes. 1x week Liquid Gold ROSE (not the regular one, the regular Liquid gold broke me out horribly).
Received sample, that lasted a month. Really great smell, texture, and results. Will buy.
