Your guide to your new purchase

Skinician Cleansing Balm

Meet your new, effortless balm-to-oil cleanser that makes removing makeup a treat instead of a chore!

This replenishing cleansing balm protects your skin’s barrier while melting any impurities (and worries!) away… 

…conditioning your skin while getting rid of impurities and makeup and without ever stripping the skin of its essential oils!

Prepare to fall head over heels with your new cleansing routine!

Skinician’s Cleansing Balm

This is a makeup-melting cleanse dream!

Perfect for all skin types (including dull skin, sensitive skin, dry skin, combination skin, oily skin and balanced skin!), Skinician’s Cleansing Balm is non-irritating and won’t dry skin out, compromise its moisture barrier, or disrupt its pH balance…

…it’s your kindest, most clever cleanser!

Because cleansing balms are oil-based, they help dissolve excess sebum (oil in the skin), makeup and other impurities, leaving skin feeling soft, supple and squeaky clean… 

…without the mess of a liquid cleanser, a little goes a long way!

It couldn’t be easier; simply watch while the rich balm effortlessly dissolves and sweeps away makeup (even waterproof mascara!), SPF, pollutants and impurities…

…but never stripping your skin!

In fact, see dull skin transform into a healthy, glowing, radiant complexion.

Quick, mess-free and ultra-convenient, this balm could answer all your cleansing woes and will have you and your face clean, clear and fresh in no time.

What makes this cleanser so unique? 

When it comes to cleansing your skin, how thorough are you… really?

If you’ve ever gone to bed too tired to remove your makeup or just opted for a quick wash and go, don’t worry – we’ve all been there! 

But… not thoroughly cleansing skin can lead to breakouts and dull, lacklustre skin.

If skin isn’t properly cleansed, applying topical creams won’t be as effective or give you the desired results because the product can’t penetrate all the excess oil, toxins, dead skin cells, pollutants and dirt still sitting on the surface of your skin.

Skinician’s Cleansing Balm is perfect as a first cleanse to effectively melt away dirt, oil and makeup from your skin as it melts into an oil as you warm it in your palms.

When you apply water to your face (after massaging the balm into your skin), the balm will dissolve (because it contains emulsifiers) and leave the skin moisturised and nourished…

without leaving any oily residue behind. 

Double-cleansing benefits

It really is as straightforward as it sounds…

…double cleansing simply means cleaning your face two times!

Skincian’s Cleansing Balm is the perfect first cleanse as it helps breaks down makeup and excess oils. Then, simply follow on with a cleansing product specifically targeting your skin concerns, such as hydration, blemish-prone, enlarged pores, oily or dry.

Plus, double cleansing allows any other skincare products applied after to work at their optimal level letting any actives do their job!

But you can also just use this Cleansing Balm as your only cleansing makeup remover should you not wish to double cleanse.

What skin types does a cleansing balm suit?

The good news is that all skin types will benefit from Skinician’s Cleansing Balm!

The nourishing balmy texture is excellent for even the driest skin types as it helps protect the skin’s barrier with nourishing oils and without stripping the skin of its essential oils.

Dry and dehydrated skin will love the cocktail of natural oils designed to leave skin nourished, hydrated and with a glowing complexion!

And if you have oily skin, a cleansing balm is ideal because the balm actually helps remove excess oil in the skin and pull oil-based impurities from your pores as oil attracts oil. And Jojoba oil helps to loosen and melt excessive sebum (oil) in the skin.

Have acne-prone skin? No problem!

Skinician’s Cleansing Balm is formulated with natural oils (like Jojoba oil and Almond oil) that help soothe breakouts, leaving your skin feeling soft, clean and fresh. 

Plus, even the most sensitive skin will cherish the soothing, calming effect of the Avocado oil, whilst anti-inflammatory and skin-healing Almond oil helps repair the skin barrier.

This makeup cleansing balm will have your back, whatever your skin type is!

Key ingredients…

Avocado oil, Jojoba oil, Almond oil and Vitamin E together help to attract and remove excess oils while strengthening and repairing the skin’s crucial barrier.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil can help your skin in so many ways!

From fighting oxidative stress caused by everyday exposure to pollutants and other toxins; as an anti-ageing treatment due to its antioxidants that help plump out and soften the look of fine lines and slow down further signs of ageing; also naturally protecting skin from sun damage. It also helps regulate and balance sebum (oil) production because it's similar to the oil your body naturally produces.

Jojoba Oil also helps your body make Collagen (which decreases as you get older, part of why your facial structure changes as you age), improving the skin's elasticity. And finally, Jojoba Oil also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties that help relieve dryness, flaking & itching - ideal for those with inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. Jojoba really is a skin-loving super-hero ingredient!

Vitamin E

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, becoming dry and less supple, which can increase the appearance of wrinkles.

Anti-inflammatory Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help neutralise damage caused by the sun and free radicals (unstable molecules that can damage collagen and elastin) to protect cells, preventing further signs of premature ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, helping your skin look and feel younger and healthier for longer!

Avocado Oil

Avocado Oil is high in fat and vitamins A and C that help nourish, moisturise and provide antioxidant protection to the skin and slow skin thinning and plumping skin. It also contains a high Vitamin E content with potassium, lecithin, and other nutrients that help further nourish the skin, perfect for dry, dehydrated or dull skin.

At the same time, Vitamin D in the oil supports the skin barrier and protects against UV-induced cell damage.

Plus, it promotes collagen production thanks to oleic acid, which allows the skin to rejuvenate and keep moisturised, helping new skin growth and accelerating the healing process for fresh, youthful-looking skin!

Sweet Almond Oil

Antioxidant Sweet Almond Oil is highly emollient, which means it helps balance moisture and water loss and leaves your skin looking radiant. It delivers nutrients deep into the dermis keeping your skin cells happy and healthy! Being full of fatty acids helps your skin stay moisturised and hydrated, while Vitamin E soothes any irritated skin.

Plus, Sweet Almond Oil can also help improve complexion and skin tone, and because it's antibacterial and full of Vitamin A, it's the perfect remedy for treating acne.

And that’s not all…

The heavenly aromatherapeutic jasmine, lavender and violet notes helps soothe any stresses away, leaving you feeling relaxed, calm and refreshed.

Who knew removing your makeup could feel like such a treat?

    *PLEASE NOTE: The Cleansing Balm is not suitable if you have lash extensions or wear contact lenses or if you have an almond nut allergy.
