With cleansing as one of my favorite skincare steps, a cleansing balm can add to the relaxation level when cleansing and removing the remains of the day. NBPR noticed my love for cleansing and sent over the Jane Scrivner Nourishing Cleanser for me to try.
According to their study, around 30% of our skin’s oils helps kills germs and bacteria while locking in moisture. As we get older, we lose these oils and it leaves the skin looking dry, tired, and dull. To help solve this, the Nourishing Cleanser contains jojoba oil to mimic the skin’s natural wax production to replenish and restore the barrier function of the skin. It also contains organic beeswax to condition, calm, and soothe. The cleansing balm also has sandalwood, ylang-ylang, lavender, and sweet orange essential oils. These ingredients work to leave the skin balanced, rehydrated, plumped, and boosted.
This balm has a lightweight and thin texture but feels thick on the skin. The balm emulsifies into a thick oil after you massage it. Despite the heaviness, it glides onto the skin smoothly and feels relaxing, with the addition of the light and fresh scent this has. I know that this is meant to be removed with a cleansing cloth instead of water but as a matter of preference, I like my balms to be easily removed. With water. Unfortunately, as instructed, this doesn’t work that way. I know, I know, I’m a rebel. When removed with a cloth, which I’m trying to get used to, my makeup is gone with one wipe, like magic. It might take a couple of more wipes when it comes to mascaras and eyeliners but the cloth it came with feel soft and gentle on the skin. What I really like with this cleansing balm, though, is how nourishing it feels on the skin. The cleanser leaves my skin hydrated and soft after each use.
