Three To Try | Cleansing Balms

Cleansing balms are my thing and I always get excited when I find a new one to try. I love everything about them from their rich, luxurious texture to the way they clean the skin without making me feel greasy or like I'm going to wake up with a bunch of spots. I also love that there's something for everyone and today I'm going to show you three that I think everybody should try. 
Dames & Dimes Chocolate Orange Cleansing Balm | £13.95
I know I've raved about this a hundred times before but I couldn't do a post about cleansing balms and not mention it! Whenever my skin is in need of a good massage, this is what I reach for. It has a gorgeous texture and just the right amount of slip. It's packed full of amazing oils and it always leaves my skin feeling nourished and plump. One thing to bear in mind with this cleanser is that it doesn't emulsify so you do need a flannel/cloth to remove it and there will be a light layer of moisture on the skin afterwards. For those of you who are wondering, yes this does actually smell like chocolate orange and yes it is to die for! 

Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm | £17.50
This is one of those really hyped up cleansers and for good reason. It's a beautiful soft cleansing balm which you can use for either a first or second cleanse. It's formulated with Sweet Almond Oil and Echium Oil which help to nourish and hydrate the skin. I prefer to use this as a makeup remover and I just massage it into the skin, add a bit of water to emulsify, and remove it with a hot flannel. I also love that it comes in a tube as it means I don't have to worry about trying to fit a massive pot in my bag when I'm travelling. I would highly recommend checking this out if you're looking for something easy and affordable! 

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm | £39
This is what I would call the Rolls Royce of cleansing balms. It's the first one I ever tried and it's still my favourite to this day. No matter what condition my skin is in, this always makes it 100x better. You would think that a balm would leave the skin feeling greasy but it actually does an amazing job of cleaning the skin and unclogging my pores. It also makes my skin feel incredibly smooth and soft which helps my makeup go on flawlessly. I will always have a backup and to those who want to try it but are a bit hesitant because of the price, just go for it! You won't regret it!


 Which cleansing balms should I try next?
