Beauty review: Pure Fiji Coconut Cleansing Balm

When you’re waking up on dark, chilly mornings like we’ve been having in Auckland over the past week, thoughts turn to the tropics and how much of a boost to the spirit time spent there really is. I have been lucky enough to travel for work and play to the likes of Fiji’s Malolo Island and Kokomo over the past few years, and would have given anything to be able to bottle up the sensorial bliss that I found there.
The closest thing to exactly that is Pure Fiji, who constantly invent new and beautiful ways to transport me back to the islands with just a whiff of their unique fragrances. They are a global brand but still proudly Fiji-based, with a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and corporate offices located on a two-acre property in Suva, capital of the Fiji Islands. The Pure Fiji complex boasts an internationally renowned Day Spa, Health and Wellness Centre, Group Fitness studio, hair and makeup salon as well as herb, spice and vegetable gardens, which one day I hope to make a pilgrimage to.
Pure Fiji is also still the only cosmetic manufacturing company in the South Pacific and passionately advocates premium natural products while respecting the Fijian people, culture and environment. Their admirable sustainable manufacturing practices help support several villages and funds schools, health care, nutrition and basic infrastructure for hundreds of people in rural Fiji, and they have always sought to maintain a minimal carbon footprint in the manufacturing and distribution of their products. All exports are carbon offset, all packaging is biodegradable, and all products are also grey-water safe. How great is that?
But back to their delicious product, the latest of which has quickly become very dear to my heart. Simply called Coconut Cleansing Balm and so perfect for right now when the mercury is dropping, it is a beautiful to use, cleansing balm-to-milk that melts away all traces of makeup and impurities without drying out your skin. Keeping your barrier happily intact, its ingredient deck includes Quillaja Saponaria, a natural soap extract, combined with the vitamin-rich purifying powers of Coconut and Moringa oils to leave skin feeling soft, fresh and nourished.
Applied to dry skin first for maximum effect, I love that this beauty effortlessly removes even stubborn eye makeup with ease, and is a truly sensorial experience to boot. To use it, start by warm a small amount of balm between palms and massage into dry skin using circular motions. Next, add water to turn the balm to milk, then gently remove with a warm, damp cleansing cloth. Heaven!
Suitable for all skin types but particularly great for sensitive skin, Pure Fiji Coconut Cleansing Balm is available now.
