Vaishaly Cleansing Balm for Dry/Sensitive Skins
I have run out of my Shu Uemura Pure:Nu Gentle Cleansing Oil-In-Gel cleanser so was happy to get my hands on a suitable replacement - and what a replacement! Vaishaly Cleansing Balm for Dry/Sensitive skin is wonderfully aromatic and organically based, with sweet almond and olive oils to nourish skin as it cleanses, and arnica, ginkgo and calendula to soothe and relieve dry skin.
Essential oils include lavender, geranium, chamomile, rose absolute and ylang ylang. The bottle is a pump which keeps things clean and easy-to-use. A couple of pumps is all you need, you simply emulsify with water and it lathers up - not a huge amount but enough to cover and no need to use a cloth (which again can by unhygienic). Massage into the face and neck for 30 seconds and voila gorgeously clean skin. This cleansing balm is refreshing on the skin, washes off easily and my skin did feel super-smoth and moisturised!
Oh and it smells great too.
