Farmacy Beauty Very Cherry Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm
Gentle reader, it's back! and I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm excited. Why? Well, because I'm a sucker for a good cleansing balm and I'm also a sucker for anything cherry. Cherry flavored, cherry scented, cherries printed on it... I'm here for it.
What is a Cleansing Balm?
So, what am I on about, anyway? Well, the delightfully delicious Farmacy Very Cherry Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm is back. But only for a limited time. Like it's sister, Green Clean, Very Cherry is a lightweight cleansing balm/facial cleanser that effortlessly sweeps away dirt, oil, makeup, sunscreen and pollution. I love this cleansing balm because it's easy and pleasant to use and it gets my skin clean, leaving it feeling so soft and hydrated, not at all dried out or stripped of life. It's the perfect makeup removing first step in a two step cleansing routine or as a stand alone quick cleanse that is kind to my very dry skin, especially as we are transitioning into the cooler, drier days of fall and winter.
How Do I Use it?
Cleansing balms are a combination of lightweight and nourishing oils and butters and emulsifiers that are so easy to use. I pick up a little of the cleansing balm with the supplied spatula and deposit it in the palm of my hand and rub my hands gently together to begin softening and melting the balm and get it ready to go. Next, I smooth it over my skin, massaging and swirling it while it further melts and pulls the makeup and sunscreen up off of my skin. Once it's looking all grody, I add a little water to the mess and the balm emulsifies into a creamy cleanser that I keep working for a moment longer, then it's time to rinse. I like to rinse away cleansers with my favorite muslin cloths. I don't splash water onto my face when I'm rinsing because even when I'm being careful, I end up covered in water and so does my entire bathroom counter and the floor and I don't have the time or the patience for all of that mess. Now my skin is ready for a second cleanse or the rest of my night time skin care routine. Easy-peasy.
This cleansing balm has a light, sweet cherry scent. I find it yummy. If you aren't into fruity scents or are scent sensitive or averse, this may not be your cup of coffee.
