There is no better feeling than getting home after a long day at work, taking your bra off, getting your pyjamas on and washing your face. The reeellliiieeeffff!! Doing this for someone with regular skin is pretty fast but when you suffer from a skin complaint you need to go through at least 400 steps before you can crash on the sofa. Oh the joys…
I have always been quite good at the whole cleanse, tone, moisturise routine but I never really considered what ingredients were actually in all of them (I know, I’m sorry). This in turn didn’t suit my skin and the eczema on my face was progressively getting worse and worse.
Then about 2 years ago I discovered the Frankincense Deep Cleansing Balm in my first LoveLula subscription beauty box by a brand called Balm Balm and it completely changed the way I looked at skincare for my extremely dry, flaky skin. So much so that I bought the whole frankincense range!
The set contains the Deep Cleansing Balm, a Light Facial Oil, a Soothing Facial Tonic, a muslin cloth and it all comes in a little muslin carry bag.
Firstly I take my makeup as normal then I apply a small amount of the cleansing balm to my face and neck, massage in for a minute or so and gently remove with the damp muslin cloth. After I have patted my face dry with a towel I’ll do a few sprays of the tonic. Next I add 2 or 3 drops of the light oil to my moisturiser and gently rub in to my face and neck.
Seriously this is this dreamiest skincare routine I have ever done! It’s light, its fresh and it smells lovely! It makes my skin baby soft and smoothes out all my dry patches of eczema. At first I didn’t get on with the oil that well because I was using too much so it was just sort of sitting on top of my skin. But then when I realised it would work better for me if I mixed a few drops in with my daily moisturiser then I really started to see the benefits. The balm really gives my skin a good base for the day and I feel like it protects my skin against the elements. The tonic is so refreshing and the oil is the perfect primer for my foundation/ concealer. I have made these products part of my daily routine for about 2 years now and continue to do so. Also they are all made with 100% organic ingredients! Perfect!
I buy my Balm Balm products here…
As always, if you are trying out a new product then please check the ingredients and do a patch test in case of allergies.
