Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) and a chemical exfoliator that works wonders to remove excess sebum, dirt and dead cells that can clog pores and result in breakouts. For this reason, it’s the perfect ingredient for oily, congested and acne prone skin.

Orange Peel Oil contains a rich source of Hesperidin, a major flavonoid, that has been demonstrated to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, skin lightening and anti-microbial properties.

How To Apply
To be used as the first step in the double cleansing routine. Warm a small scoop of the cleansing balm between dry palms and massage over dry skin. Wet your hands with a little water and massage the face to emulsify the oil. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry. Follow with a water-based cleanser.
At first I was unsure about this cleansing balm as my skin is oily but also quite sensitive, but this product is so gentle! My skin feels so soft and clean after using it. It's quickly become a staple in my routine.
This product is absolutely amazing. I wear SPF daily and this cleansing balm melts it off completely, leaving my skin feeling clean without blocking my pores! Will definitely re-purchase.
I wasn't sure what to expect for a cleansing balm, but thought would give a try and will buy again. Really nice product to use, sort of balm application which is nice to massage onto face and then dilutes to a cleansing milk as you add water. Enjoyable to use and leaves your skin feeling cleansed without feeling dried out.
