Hey there! So in my boots haul last week one of the things i picked up was the No7 nourishing cleansing balm £13.00, as a lot of products were on 3 for 2, and i was very interested in trying a different cleansing balm! i do love a good cleanser, especially a budget one.
This cleansing balm promises “radiant and healthier looking skin in 1 week”, with No7s tri-vit complex and grapeseed oil. It is what i would call a rather “basic” cleanser, but you know at least its not full of mineral oil!
As you can see, its in a nice big pot and it looks like your normal balm cleanser, waxy but put a little pressure on it and you can scoop some up. The cleanser feels really buttery as soon as you pick some up, it feels silky and really nice to touch, not gritty in the slightest! It smells clean, it does have a smell but its just clean and fresh not really over powering or annoying in anyway for me at least.
It melts super quickly in your hands and it feels really nice on the skin, its got plenty of slip to it and you can easily massage everything off. Makeup wise, it removes everything no problem but a lot of mascara would likely need a different remover, but i tend to do it that myself all the time anyway, i wouldn’t use this on my eyes unless i had too but i feel the same about every balm or oil cleanser. It doesn’t leave any residue when removed with a warm flannel (it comes with a muslin cloth but no thanks).
Honestly this is a pretty short review but i dont have much more to say! this is a really nice, staple balm cleanser that is one of those cleansers i can see myself keeping in my stash at all times. I would highly suggest giving it a go next time theres a sale or offer on!
