If you follow me on instagram you know I have done a couple of posts around my skincare routine. One of my constants over the past year has been the Farmacy Cleansing Balm.
Historically I have used make-up remover wipes, which were my favorites especially if I didn’t want to clean my face. Then after learning they can be some of the most toxic things to use on your skin, I quickly changed over to oil cleansing. I actually really enjoyed oil cleansing. It was an easy way to remove all the dirt and make-up from the day and clean your face at the same time. You typically use a hot towel to remove the oil making it a “spa like” experience. If you know me, I’m here for a spa experience….ALWAYS.
Oil Cleansing also cleared up completely when I stopped using “face wash” and make-up remover wipes. When I talk about break-outs, my version would come and go, multiple at a time. A few weeks into oil cleansing that all went away. With that being said, I was hesitant to try new products knowing I had success with oil cleansing.
However, the only downside to oil cleansing is using hot towels to remove the oil with the make-up can be a chore if you are trying to be in and out of cleaning your face quickly. I came across the Farmacy Cleansing Balm so thought I would give it a shot since it seems to be in the middle of oil and a cleanser.
After almost a year of using it I am really happy with the product and the results, so I wanted to share what I have noticed.
Farmacy Cleansing Balm Benefits:
- It is a mix between an oil and a cleanser which makes it hydrating without the oily residue
- I don’t have to wash my face in the morning because it feels moisturized and clean from the night before
- It easily removes hard to get off make-up
- When you wash your face with the cleansing balm (oil removes oil) so it attaches to the dirt and washes off which in turn helps keep break-outs at a minimum.
They just came out with an apple version, and I am currently obsessed. I also have to say of a lot of the cleansers I have used the price point is also not bad. If you are on the fence, I would definitely give it a go.
