    Pixi - Nourishing Cleansing Balm

    Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm Reviews

    This is horrendous
    I love cleansing balms but the texture of this is like a thicker version of vaseline with stiffer chunks of vaseline dotted throughout. It's too thick to use on your eyes since it doesn't melt down as you massage it in. It feels like it actually thickens up the more you agitate it. It's fragranced so it's no good if you have sensitive skin. I could look past that if it didn't smell like old ladies so strongly that wearing a moisturiser afterwards isn't enough to cover it. It's hydrophobic so water just beads off your hands when you try to wash it off. If you don't have a flannel to hand, good luck getting this off without the top layer of your skin going with it. The Body Shop camomile butter is a much better, unscented, truly nourishing, cheaper alternative that gets the job done and can be used on the eyes.
    Read the instructions!
    The perfect first cleanse or double cleanse. It breaks down EVERYTHING and comes off really easily with a warm, damp face cloth. It is designed to nourish the skin rather than strip everything away and it does this perfectly. I follow this with another cleanser such as the Inkey List's salicylic acid cleanser or another oil based one.
    I cant get it off my hands, let alone my face!
    while it does what its supposed to do, it dissolves makeup very well, but it lingers on the face and the hands and its borderline impossible to remove! I've had it for a while now and every time I have a lot of makeup on and I think I may be in need of a cleansing balm, the idea of having to use this puts me off! I am thinking of different ways to use this, and you could use it, but it'll stick to your skin like a magnet! I had to rub my face with a harsh towel and I could still feel it afterwards. I mean, nice try, it does its job, but it's as far from perfect as can be!
    I wanted to like this product...
    I really wanted to like this product but I find the balm is too balmy, like a wax almost, and made me break out. The texture is odd, I had random granules in mine. Would not repurchase. Emma Hardie Moringa cleanser is 10 times better. Clinique Take The Day Off is good too if you are on a budget. I am currently using the No 7 balm and have had no problems.
    It is really IMPOSSIBLE to rinse off!!! With warm even hot water it leaves very greasy, almost waxy feeling on my skin. I've used Estee Lauder one (it was great) before and its completely different formula.
    Very Greasy & Does not Remove Mascara
    Wow, this product is super oily and thick! My skin is very dry so I don't mind the thickness of it but others might find it too greasy and heavy. The smell is overpowering! If you love roses you might like it but it makes me sickly. This cleansing balm is so thick that you could probably use this as a night face mask because this stuff is really heavy. I find that it is sufficient in removing my Pixi Skin Tint, however, I have to double cleanse to get my mascara off. It leaves a strong oil film on the face so if you don't like that you will need to cleanse again after using this cleansing balm. I have received this as a free gift with my order from Cult Beauty and I am happy I did not pay for this product because it would be not so good investment of my money.
    Won't be repurchasing
    This cleanser is very heavy and the fragrance is overwhelming, this wouldn't be too bad however if it took my make up off, but it doesn't! You have to work very hard to try and remove mascara and I still look like a panda in the morning! Won't be buying again!
    Very heavy with a grainy/lumpy texture. It does smooth out and is incredibly nourishing, as the title suggests. However, you have to work hard to remove it and I've only just noticed it had a slightly artificial 'rosey' smell. I checked the ingredients list and see 'fragrance' on the end. Really disappointing! I must have just missed it when I purchased if I had seen it, I wouldn't have bought it. It's unnecessary for a product such as this (or any skincare products these days) and IMO, needs removing. I would also suggest working on the texture as it is so lumpy. Overall, a disappointing purchase and I won't buy again. Good quality coconut oil will give you a more superior and cheaper cleanse.
    Melts all my makeup
    I’ve had this a while now but I’ve been makeup free the past few weeks. I’ve now used this product twice. I know someone else said that it doesn’t remove mascara but I first use one of the Pixi lash pads to remove eye makeup. I then take a tiny amount of the cleanser rub in my hands to form an oil. I let it work it’s magic then clean off with a damp face cloth. At this point, I can’t follow with my toner but I have been double cleansing recently. I’ve had another cleaner which was a little lighter weight but this still works fine for me and I’ve also used coconut oil from RMS beauty which is the same consistency so overall a good product.
    Very greasy, clogged pores
    Should have read all reviews before buying it: big dissapoinment. Very greasy, doesn't not de-emulsified, the only way to get off fave is _literally_ scrubbing off your face with wet cloth. Left me with clogged pores. Also the balm gave me a lot of problems with eyes. Due to its oily structure, the oils stayed on eye lids, getting into the eyes, preventing natural eye drops keep my eyes moist. So I had terrible sensation in the eyes when I was putting contacts on. Definitely a miss.
    It does the job but...
    I generally love products from Pixi and as I fell in love with cleansing balm, I ordered this one after I ran out of my Moringa balm. To be honest, this product kind if disappointed me. It has very solid structure and leaves very greasy film on skin. It removes the make up but Not comfortably and I use it only time to time (yep, back to Moringa - the price clearly has a reason) because Im afraid of blemishes.
    Not as good as others
    The balm leaves behind a waxy film over the face even after following with a damp cloth and depending on the second cleanser I use I still feel some residue on my face. Also does not remove make up as well as other cleansers I use, particularly eye make up, TTDO by Clinique is far better despite only being marginally more expensive.
    Good but not great cleansing balm.
    Didn't love this. It's alright but, for me, there were two issues. The balm left behind a residue that I didn't like, even after using a cloth to remove. Also it wasn't that effective at getting make-up off, especially mascara. There was still lots coming off after the second cleanse which isn't the case with the other balm cleansers I use including Emma Hardie. Didn't like the scent either. The balm turned a bit grainy towards the end. I might buy again but wouldn't rush to do so. It's pretty good for the price point.
    Great but for double cleanse only
    It does what it says. You won't find better cleansing balm for this price. The cleanser has one downside, you can't use it alone. You need to double cleanse or you won't ever get the waxy residue from your face. Works great with Youth To The People Superfood cleanser. Does not irritate my dry sensitive skin. Despite of being waxy it does not clog my pores.
    Love this!
    There is no better cleansing balm in this price range. It melts away all of my make up without stripping my dry sensitive skin.
    Does what it says on the tin
    Fantastic first cleanse. Works wonderfully with my oversensitive, eczema prone skin. Sometimes I use it for a facial massage and feel that it leaves my skin looking fresh and plumped. I used to use Emma Hardy to cleanse, but thr fragrance irritated me skin. This provides more or less the same results (without the irritation) at a much better price.
    This cleansing balm is incredible. Removes makeup so effortlessly and leaves my skin feeling so soft. I always follow up with Pixi Glow which is another fav!
    I bought this as a first cleanse/makeup remover and for this it is absolutely perfect. A little goes a long way so it will last ages, and it removes every trace of makeup, even mascara and eyeliner. It is quite heavy, which is why I would only use it for a first cleanse. It does have a bit of texture to it, and like other reviewers have said is a bit 'lumpy' but this does not bother me at all or inhibit its performance, the lumps are not hard and break up easily when you are rubbing it on your face. It is not overpowering in fragrance, you do need a facecloth to remove it (which you should do anyway when removing makeup), and it makes my skin feel baby soft and super moisturised. I like to follow up with Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser, and Glow Tonic.
    This is definitely the best cleansing balm I've used to date. It leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and soft, will be adding it to my must-have list.
    Nice cleansing balm!
    I got this in the Caroline Hirons beauty box, and I like it. People are giving it a bit of a hard time because of the residue and the grainy look of the balm. When it comes to residue, I have to say it leaves my skin smooth to the touch and yet cleansed. Still, I double-cleanse anyway, and this is just the first cleanser I use. I think most people who complain about the graininess have used Emma Hardie before. I'm one of those people who shifted from Eve Lom to Emma Hardie. Eve Lom is a lot grainier than Emma Hardie - similar in a way to Pixi. When I first used Emma Hardie, I was not a fan of it's near-liquid state. It was only after I started using it frequently that I fell in love. So the graininess of Pixi's cleansing balm doesn't bother me at all. Plus, this is a lot cheaper than Emma Hardie. It's not going to replace my Emma Hardie, but it is a good first stage morning cleanser for me.
    This is the best cleansing balm I've used to date.
    I have liked cleansing balms for many years and tried about 15 different ones. This is by far my favourite. It is gentle but effective with a nice but not overpowering smell. I feel like it's really cleansing my skin and after a few weeks my skin still looks great. I had the experience with other cleansing balm that after a while you notices that it doesn´t clean effectively, but this does. This will become a staple.
    Brilliant cleanser
    I love this product. After an initial & quick removal of mascara this shifts everything. Just a small amount then rinse off with a warm cloth and my skin feels so soft. I would buy this time and time again, it is the perfect first cleanser. I love it.
    Reminiscent of Botanics Cleansing Balm
    This, to me, is a more expensive dupe to the Botanics Cleansing Balm, both in smell and in texture. The Botanics Cleansing Balm is way cheaper. It is nice, but i will not be buying it again.
    I mean this does take off your makeup but is really hard to get off your face. Very oily and thick and if it gets in your eyes they will go blurry. Coconut oil has the same effect and is waaayyy cheaper.
    Soft skin
    I received this as a free gift and actually quite like it! For several years already I've used the Oil Cleansing Method to remove makeup and unblock my pores, and sweet almond oil (which this product contains) is my favourite. I do my usual 2-minute face massage routine with the Nourishing Cleansing Balm, wipe it off with a make-up removing the towel, rinse with water, and my face is sooooo silky and hydrated afterwards. Although given the price I may just go back to pure almond oil after it runs out. Either way, it's worth a try in my opinion.
    Awful cleanser
    This is probably the worst cleanser I have ever used. Gave two stars as it does clean your face, but the consistency is horrible, it doesn't come off your skin unless you use a second cleanser, it leaves behind what feels like a film on your skin which just doesn't feel good, almost like if you were to rub solid coconut oil on your skin and when it cools down it goes hard. It's overly fragranced which I wouldn't mind, but it's not a nice one. If you were looking into buying this as a cheaper alternative to Emma Hardie, don't do it.
    Very disappointed
    • nourishing but heavy cleanser • blocked pores • caused breakouts • although effectively removed makeup you will need to use a separate cleanser for your second cleanse to remove the oily film left on skin
    Good make up remover but...
    I bought this as a cheaper alternative to the EH moringa balm and while it does a good job at removing makeup it leaves a film on the skin so a second cleanse is necessary. It also makes my eyes watery and not too keen on the smell. I'll finish it but won't buy again.
    Too heavy
    I never thought I'd write "too heavy" in a review....I have dry skin and love rich cleaners and creams, but this is just unmanageable. As others have said, you have to double cleanse whether you want to or not, just to take the residue off.
    Very Heavy
    I found this balm very 'balmy' and heavy on my skin. I have combination/oily skin as it is, so maybe this is better for people with drier skin as it is very nourishing. It removes the most of my makeup, but struggles a little with mascara. I always have to use a foamy face wash post cleansing balm as it does tend to cling to my face. This is only the second cleansing balm I have tried - but I still remain faithful to my Clinique Take The Day Off Balm.
    Pixi nourishing cleansing balm
    My favourite balm cleanser by far. I am at pot number 4.
    waxy layer
    This is waxy and stays waxy after I put water on all other balms turns to an oil and is easy to wash away but this is just leaving a layer of wax just like putting bee wax on your face. Thank god that I double cleanse!
    Very Nourishing
    I love this balm, but I don't think it will be for everyone. The balm is extremely thick, probably thicker than all the other balms I've tried, which is precisely what my dry skin likes about it. Other skin types may find it too much. I do find that after working the product onto my face it can sometimes be difficult to rinse it off my hands as the product gets very sticky. Probably wouldn't be easy to just wash off the face either, but I always remove cleansers with a flannel so that doesn't cause an issue. Regardless, this is still one of my favourite cleansing balms because of the after effect. It removes makeup very well, and leaves my dry skin with a lovely soft, almost moisturised feel, which few other cleansers in this price range can achieve.
    Indulgent, but not too much for oily skin
    I love this cleanser, I have really, REALLY oily skin and I didn't find that this exaggerated that at all, which I was worried about. It takes all your makeup off easily and it feels pampering without being too rich for everyday. The only times I see makeup left over is if I don't rinse it off properly. If you're worried about the price you should know that I have had this product since July using it as close to everyday as it can be and I still haven't run out! That's full coverage foundation, eyeliner and waterproof mascara at least!
    Gentle yet effective
    I got this for free when I bought 2 items of the same brand. Happy I tried it, it's a very hydrating and nourishing first cleanser in winter. Wiped off with a damp muslin cloth, it removed my makeup pretty well. Didn't break me up which is essential in any skin care product I try. Overall I'm happy with it and I do recommend it if u have a dehydrated acne prone skin.
    1st time user
    I have been wanting to try Pixi products since I began reading Caroline Hirons blog. I decided on the nourishing balm as I read it was a perfect first cleanse. I put on dark make up just so I could see the effect and it did exactly what it said it would do. You don't have to use a lot so it should last a while (I don't really wear that much make up), it felt lovely against my skin and left it feeling nice and soft afterwards. I followed it up with Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser. I only gave it a 4 star as this is the first time I have used this product and I don't know what effect it will have on my skin long term, but so far I am happy with it.
    Can't get past the texture
    Since Pixi's Glow tonic is EPIC, I wanted to give the cleansing balm a try. I really like the idea of a balm - less mess than lotions and this one does a lovely job. This one has teeny grains of what feels like wax when massaged melt and turn to oil. Rinsed off with a warm washcloth it definitely cleanses but leaves my skin feeling a bit 'waxy'. Fair to Pixie, this does what it says on the tin, just no wow factor for me personally. Might try Tata Harper or Sunday Riley next.
    Great Value
    Love this cleansing balm, it's as good as the Emma Hardie in my opinion and it's way more affordable. Takes off everything and it melts on to the skin. Perfect cleansing balm, love using it.
    4 stars
    I like it. I use it when my skin is feeling dry or sensitive as my only cleanse on make-up free days and as second cleanse on days where I wear make-up. It leaves my skin feeling soothed and not stripped.
    I got this in the latest CH box and am very impressed. I usually use Emma Hardie but prefer this at the moment as it seems more hydrating for the chilly Sydney weather. I agree that the lumps in it seem a bit odd, but it suits my skin perfectly at the moment and I'll definitely re-purchase.
    This is almost a really nice balm. It smells nice (gentle rose), and it cleans efficiently. The texture, though, is way off for me, with big grains (of cocoa butter?) which you need to pop/break against your skin. As other reviewers have mentioned, it also definitely needs a flannel to remove it, as it's very thick and doesn't emulsify terribly well. So, it works and I'll finish the container, but then it's back to Emma Hardie for me: which is much easier to use.
