What Exactly Is A Cleansing Balm?

You may have never heard of cleansing balm, but it’s been quite popular recently, so it’s been on your radar.

A cleansing balm is an oil-based skincare product that is solid (rather than liquid) and used for cleansing and makeup removal.
A cleansing balm’s oil works to remove dirt and oil from your skin and replace it with new, nourishing oils.

Cleaning balm, believe it or not, is beneficial for people with oily skin because it prevents the skin from overproducing oil. Traditional foaming cleansers can strip the skin of its natural oils, causing it to overproduce oil.
The cleansing balm also removes makeup like it’s no big deal!

You may recall hearing about cold cream being a popular beauty regimen everyone uses, from famous actresses to your grandmother. While the concept of a cold cream cleanser is similar to that of a cleansing balm, traditional cold creams (such as Ponds) contain mineral oil and artificial fragrances so that I would avoid them!

A Cleansing Blam’s Benefits

Do you have any idea who should use natural cleansing balm? The beauty of cleansing balm is that it is suitable for all skin types – dry skin, oily, acne-prone skin, sensitive skin, young skin, or mature skin (cleansing balm is excellent for anti-aging!).

How Do We Wash Face With Cleansing Balm?

It’s simple to wash your face with a cleansing balm, but there’s a method for the madness. It is similar for oil method, but a solid balm is used instead of liquid oil.

  • Take an almond-sized amount of cleansing balm and apply it to your skin.
  • Melt the balm by rubbing it between your fingers.
  • Apply the balm to DRY skin in circular motions.
  • Massage the area around the eyes as well.
  • Warm to hot water should be used to wet the muslin washcloth.
  • Place a cloth over your face and take a few deep breaths as the steam opens your pores.
  • Wipe away oil from the face with the cloth, being especially careful around the eyes.
  • Repeat until the majority of the oil has been removed but the skin still feels moisturized.
  • After that, your skin should be clean but also soft and nourished.

Ingridients For Making Your Cleansing Balm

Cleansing Balm was the product that got me hooked on the cleansing balm method of face cleaning. It’s a lovely product, but it’s pricey – $74 for a 2.5-oz jar. So, when my Beautycounter product ran out, I started experimenting with a homemade version.

While I didn’t expect to completely replicate it (I don’t have access to all of the ingredients that a company like Beautycounter does! ), I did want my it to have a similar consistency.

I wanted it to be solid to the touch while also melting in my hands. And, of course, I wanted to use only natural, non-toxic, and organic ingredients.

My attempts to make the balm had a bit of a Goldilocks problem – the first was too thin, the second was too thick, the third was almost there, and the fourth was just right!
The following ingredients made the final cut:

Shea Butter

An excellent moisturizer derived from the nut of the African shea tree. (I buy unrefined shea butter in bulk from my local co-op, but shea butter can also be purchased online.)

Cocoa Butter

It is a moisturizing oil derived from cocoa beans. Because cocoa butter is very hard at the room temperature, it contributes to the consistency of the cleansing balm. (I buy organic cocoa butter discs in bulk, but you can also find them online.)

Coconut Oil

This popular kitchen staple is delicious and highly regarded as a skincare treatment and makeup remover. (Use whatever you already have in kitchen cupboard – there is no difference between coconut oil for eating and coconut oil for skincare.) The Nutiva brand of coconut oil is one of my favorites.

Calendula Oil

Because calendula flowers have soothing and healing properties, calendula-infused oil is an excellent ingredient for cleansing balm. (I use this brand of calendula oil, but you can make your own by infusing calendula flowers in carrier oil such as sunflower, olive, or grapeseed oil.)

Frankincense Essential oil

Because of its ability to rejuvenate dry or mature skin, it is a popular oil for skincare. (Organic frankincense oil can be purchased online.)

Geranium Essential Oil

Geranium (also known as Rose Geranium) promotes clear, calm skin by regulating oil production and aiding in the unclogging of pores. Because of its woodsy, rosy scent, this essential oil is one of my favorites. (Organic geranium essential oil can be found here.)

Bergamot Essential Oil

A calming essential oil with a bright, uplifting aroma.
