I briefly spoke about Farmacy’s Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm back in August when I reviewed Sephora’s Clean Beauty set. Well I was so impressed with it that I thought it deserved a blog post of its own…
I’m no stranger to cleansing balms, in fact balms and oils are my primary night time cleansing method. I’ve tried a number of different balms over the years, but I was so impressed with my sample of the Farmacy cleansing balm that I had to purchase the full size during the Sephora VIB Holiday Sale.
This balm is the smoothest, lightest cleansing balm I’ve ever used. I melts into a luxurious oil and emulsifies into a creamy milk once you add water. It’s the perfect first cleanse to help me remove all my makeup and it works on even the most stubborn mascaras.
The balm uses sunflower oil and ginger root oil to gently cleanse, while refining the skins surface for a brighter complexion. It also includes Moringa tree and Papaya extract to exfoliate and remove impurities, as well as Farmacy’s Echinacea Purpurea GreenEnvy™, which contains a potent natural antioxidant.
The balm has a fresh, light lime scent and comes with a spatula so you don’t have to contaminate the tub. I like to rub a quarter sized amount in my palms to warm up the oil and then massage my dry face until all of my makeup appears dissolved. I add a little bit of water and continue massaging my face before rinsing it off and patting dry with a towel.
If you’re looking to add a cleansing balm into your skincare routine, I can’t recommend this one enough. I truly love everything about it, and might have even found my new holy grail! A+ Farmacy – I’ll definitely be trying more from the line soon!
