Love it: Bobbi Brown Extra Rinse Balm cleanser



At this time of year I’m sporting more slap on my face than probably at any other, so a double cleanse at night is essential. I’m always aware of over-cleansing my face however, so always make the first step a cleansing oil or balm, for the emollient and comfort factor.
When I first declared love for cleansing oils and balms a while ago I had people telling me “Try the Bobbi Brown one! Beautiful to use! Smells amazing!” So one day, when I was given the opportunity to try the Bobbi Brown Extra Rinse Balm I couldn’t wait to break it out and see how I felt about it.
And I loved it. Immediately. A super soft, conditioning cleanser, it removes all traces of makeup and impurities quickly and completely. I leaves your skin feeling plump and amazing, and was designed to be used daily for dry skin, or as a nighttime treatment when skin needs more hydration.
The yellow balm is as the name implies, a balm texture. You will notice that the texture is slightly sticky. Warming it up in your palms makes it easier going on your face and minimizes any tugging at your facial skin, and as you massage it in, the balm will feel softer and it gets easier to handle. It stays as a balm too – unlike a few that turn into oils or milks when warmed up. Then when you’re ready, it is easily washed off without using a face cloth. You can just rinse it off after emulsifying it a little with warm water. I prefer to use a muslin face cloth but that’s just me – it is top notch either way. Oh and I love the scent, which is citrus-y and clean.
Sold usually in a jar, it now comes in the generous 50ml tube that I have - perfect for travel and especially at this time of year. If you haven’t tried this beauty then I highly recommend that you do – love it.
