In recent months, cleansing balms have become one of the most popular ways to clean the skin and remove makeup. Gone are the days of simply using a makeup wipe and going to bed. Now, it is generally recognised that in order to get the best out of your skin, you have to put a little time in because unfortunately, makeup wipes don’t do as good a job as we would like to think. Instead of removing makeup and cleansing the skin, makeup wipes tend to just move the makeup and grime around on the skin, leading to clogged pores.
The double cleansing method has overtaken the use of makeup wipes in a big way. It’s easy to see why, I have been using this method for a couple of years now and it would be an understatement to say that my skin has gotten drastically better. The double cleansing method is a simple one; you remove the first layer of makeup using a cleansing balm and then you follow with another face wash to make sure the skin is thoroughly clean. With the recent popularity of the double cleanse, there has been a massive influx of different cleansing balms into the beauty market.
So, what sets the Green Keratin’s ROSAFORTE™ Magnificent Cleansing Balm apart from other cleansers on the market?
The balm has a high-performance, pure plant-based formula. It’s actually 79% organic and completely cruelty free. I was skeptical at first too, but you will actually be surprised by the difference you notice in the quality of your skin after switching over to organic skincare products. You wouldn’t want to put harmful chemicals inside your body, so why use them on the delicate barrier that is your skin?
The ROSAFORTE™ Magnificent Cleansing Balm has an incredibly luxurious formula. The thick, oily product has a fresh, rose scent which is perfect for spreading all across the face to get rid of any dirt and grime!
Making the Most of the Product
Take a small amount of product out of the pot using the spatula provided. This spatula is great because it prevents the spread of bacteria between your hands and the pot, meaning your product stays fresher for longer. And, it means you won’t be transferring any bacteria to your face in the future.
Remember, a little goes a long way! So, it’s better to start by using a smaller amount of the balm, and then you can always use a little more if you need it.
Massage the balm between your fingers to warm up the product, so it can glide easily across the skin. Work the product across your face with your eyes closed. One of the things I love most about this product is how easily it removes even waterproof mascara.
While massaging in the product, you should take a moment to relax. The more time you spend gently massaging your skin, the more effectively the balm will dissolve the grease and grime that can clog up your pores.
Use a soft, damp cloth to gently wipe away the product and any dirt left on the skin. Don’t scrub or wipe too hard, because this could end up doing more harm than good. Using a hot cloth is the most effective way to remove any traces of the product and any makeup that may still be left on the skin. Once all the balm is removed, your skin will feel clean, soft and nourished.
The Best Bits
The best bits about this cleansing balm are the lovely organic ingredients that it is created from. Organic Rosehip Oil is omega-rich and stuffed to the brim with fatty acids which are vital for the health of our skin. These fatty acids help to regenerate and repair damaged skin cells making this balm perfect for mature and dry skin types.
This balm also contains Vitamin E, a powerful conditioning antioxidant. This helps to leave your skin with a healthy, radiant glow!
Damask Rose Otto Oil is one of those rare, pricey skincare ingredients that you should jump on when you see it. It’s extracted from rose petals, taking hundreds of petals to extract just one drop of oil! But all the effort is definitely worth it. Rose Otto is fabulous for maturing skin, as an antioxidant it stimulates cell regeneration while providing intense moisture. Also, it has antibacterial properties, helping to combat blemishes. With these soothing and regenerative properties, this product is ideal for those prone to acne or rosacea.
So, make sure to pick up this cleansing balm to complete your makeup removal and cleansing routine!
