The Berry Melting ($23) is a cleansing balm cleanser that has blueberry fruit extract, jojoba oil, and glacial water to cleanse the skin while leaving it soft, smooth, and moisturized. Its texture is similar to the solid cleansing balms I like.
Once massaged onto the skin, however, it turns into a very thick oil. It retains the purple tint once mixed with water, which is fun. It smells like sweet berries as well. What I had a hard time, though, was rinsing it off. I think this is might be best removed with a cleansing cloth instead of water as it takes a few rounds of rinsing to remove and even then, it leaves a thick film on the skin. It does remove dirt and makeup though, even stubborn eye make up. It leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth but I like my cleansing balms to leave no trace and oil once rinsed.
Cake My Day ($25) is exactly like a birthday. It smells and looks like the cake you blow the candle on when you were a kid. It’s actually a wash-off mask that promises to nourish, hydrate, and balance the skin using hyaluronic acid and squalene.
It’s a creamy mask, the texture similar to ice cream, and it doesn’t completely dry. Due to the creaminess, this also takes a few rinses to wash off. I find it easier to wipe off before rinsing. The “sprinkles” also don’t melt but it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin due to its smooth texture. What I really like about this though is how plump and moisturized my skin feels afterward. No mask has ever done that at the same level for me so, I like using this when my skin is feeling dry and tight.
In this set, I like the Cake My Day whenever I want additional moisture and extra softness for my skin. The Berry Melting is something I wouldn’t really go for but those with drier skin might enjoy it.
