    I have only been using face balms for a short time, so glad I’ve found this one with all its lovely natural ingredients! It feels super nourishing, and using alongside the charcoal chocolate soap and herbal coffee scrub has done wonders for my oily skin and has fought off the lockdown dullness! Will definitely be buying more products!

    I actually look forward to taking my make up off now! This product is amazing! You can rub in over your eyes to get rid of make up and it doesn’t cause them to sting or stream! Smells loves and the packaging is premium!

    I feel like I’ve been waiting my whole life for this. I’ve genuinely been searching for an eye makeup remover for YEARS. All the others barely take off my makeup, I have to use a bunch of cotton pads, and they irritate my eczema around my eyes which looks crazy. The only ones that work leave me oily. This cleans, leaves my skin smooth, takes off mRead more about review stating Amazing! Been waiting my whole life for this.y makeup SO easily, and does not irritate my skin. The one and only problem is it stains my wash cloths, so I’ll just have to bleach them more often. 10/10 my very favorite face product in my life so far. Also a TINY bit goes a long way. I’ve had it for almost a month and I’ve barely made a dent in the product.

    I’ve tried more expensive balms before and this one is by far the best! A small amount goes a long way, soft and silky to remove all my make up and leaving my skin fresh. I have sensitive eyes and this balm doesn’t irritate them at all which is great. I’m so pleased and will absolutely purchase again!

    This feels like such a luxurious product. It smells divine but it’s also got an honest fragrance to it that lets me know it’s got nothing in it my skin won’t like. My skin is incredibly fussy and breaks out when I switch products. I’ve been using the cleansing balm for at least 4 weeks and my skin feels so smooth and looks really clear. I love thaRead more about review stating No more makeup wipes!t I can take all my makeup off with this balm and I’m not putting face wipes in the bin.
