Daily Essentials

cleanse and smooth face balm

A daily cleanser for cleansing balm addicts! Cleverly packaged in a handy, hygienic tube, our sophisticated 100% natural oil-based balm contains anti-oxidant Arctic cloudberry and gently polishing oatmeal. Sold with muslin cloth. Ideally suited for normal to dry/sensitive skins.

Cleanse and smooth face balm is a daily must-have for its dual cleansing and smoothing action to enhance your skin’s natural radiance. Anti-oxidant rich Arctic cloudberry, gentle Roman chamomile and skin-brightening red mandarin smooth away daily grime and make-up leaving skin soft, radiant and calmly clean. Gently polishing oatmeal sloughs away dead skin cells and encourages cell renewal. Shea and cocoa butter, softening rosehip, camellia, kukui nut and virgin coconut oils, rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and lipids provide a layer of skin-boosting goodness which benefits both young and more mature skins.
Warm a small amount of balm in clean hands. Smooth over face and neck, gently massaging the balm with your finger tips in circular movements, allowing the oats to polish the skin for at least 30 seconds. Apply warm water and continue massaging for a further 30 seconds. Close eyes and wipe carefully over lids and eye lashes, avoiding direct contact with eyes. Wet the muslin cloth provided with warm water and remove balm residue from your skin. Pat skin dry then apply our moisture-rich face cream or radiance face oil. We recommend this balm for normal to dry/sensitive skins but it also works very effectively on all skin types.

    I've been a fan of the super oil for years, and was thrilled to try out the other products. The facial oil is wonderful and the cleansing face balm is my new addiction.

  • Sumeera
