Amazing Affordable Cleansing Balms You Need To Know About – £ 11.00 & Under
Cleaning could probably be classified as my favorite beauty thing. Standing in front of the bathroom mirror and gently massaging that day’s makeup and dirt is cathartic and relaxing – and at the same time the perfect bedtime ritual and a great habit. A great cleanse is really the foundation of a great skin care system, but it is often overlooked in favor of its more glamorous counterparts or products that are tough. However, get your cleaning routine right, and the rest will effortlessly follow.
Some of my all time favorite cleansing balms come from Clinique, Elemis, and Emma Hardie, but they are invariably reasonably priced. While I firmly believe that investing in your cleaning routine is important, it can be difficult to find cheaper alternatives if your budget doesn’t go that far. But there are three that I would recommend over and over to anyone looking for really effective, affordable cleansing balms that make the skin feel great.
Vitaskin Vitamin C Cleansing Balm * (£ 15.00)
You might think this was twice as expensive, but this 99% natural and 100% vegan cleansing balm really only costs £ 15.00. The texture is beautifully rich and a little goes really far to effortlessly end the day without peeling off the surface of the skin. It leaves no noticeable residue, smells uplifting thanks to the citrus oils, and is fortified with vitamin C to brighten the complexion. All in all a great little detergent and a brand that is definitely worth checking out in Holland & Barratt.
The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Butter * (£ 11.00)
I can’t tell you how many pots I’ve used over the years. It remains one of my most affordable cleaning products and is probably one of my most recommended products. The buttery texture is wonderful to apply to the face and acts gently into a milky balm that removes all scratches from makeup and dirt without peeling the skin off. The soothing chamomile keeps the skin in check, while olive oil and shea butter moisturize the surface. There’s a reason it’s a best seller.
The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm (£ 9.99)
Formulated with oat kernel oil and oat powder to help maintain skin hydration, this is a really gentle cleansing balm that is great for even the most sensitive skin. Oats are known as a soothing ingredient that is abundant to help relieve inflammation or irritation. The rich texture is a pleasure to apply and massage onto the surface of the skin, removing all traces of the day without leaving any residue. The result is a clear, supple and radiant complexion that ensures targeted skin care. The inkey list is all about keeping things simple, but this simple addition to my cleaning cabinet exceeded all my expectations to the last drop.
Versed Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm (£ 7.50)
Exclusive to Cult Beauty, this hard-working balsamic milk cleaner effortlessly melts away make-up and impurities so that the skin feels smooth and supple. It’s lighter than many balms, so it’s a great introduction to the category, but it removes the day’s dirt and grime in one fell swoop. Enriched with vitamin E, eucalyptus, apricot, avocado and clove leaf oil, this does not save anything in terms of goodness – it is also cruelty-free, vegan-friendly and points to the trend of “clean” skin care. It’s almost identical in texture and result to my favorite Take The Day Off Balm (£ 25.00) clinic so you know you’re doing a good thing with it.
I would love to use all of these affordable cleansing balms until the end of time and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to expand their beauty regimen. Sometimes you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a great product, and with these three, the evidence lies in the metaphorical pudding.
