I am such a sucker for cleansers. Seriously, cleansers are my kryptonite and I am sure many of my fellow skincare junkies can relate (in all seriousness though, I do have a problem). I love trying new cleansers and I find that cleansing balms are always one of those products that seem relatively 'easy' to find but so hard to find the right one. I love a good cleansing balm, however they can sometimes be a bit of pain to wash off as some formulations don't allow the cleanser itself to emulsify. I find that in these cases, using a cloth is the best method of getting rid of excess. These cleansers are great to use at home as it truly creates a wonderful experience but it can be a bit of pain when travelling or when in a rush. However, there are some fantastic formulations like that of the Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood which is rich and heavy in consistency but will emulsify into a milky residue and wash off effortlessly. This made this cleanser a very travel friendly one for me, and the beautiful scent of this just added to my enjoyment of using this cleanser.
For me, Darphin is often a very underrated and overlooked skincare brand. This French skincare company creates some amazing formulations with luxurious textures whilst performing almost exactly what is promised on the package. I find that it is a brand that is often quite overlooked for more 'flashier' formulations promising the world. In saying that though, don't underestimate how effective the Darphin range can be (their Hydraskin Light moisturiser has been a favourite in the past) as the formulations of this skincare brand can also be just as effective. Recently I had the opportunity to try the some of the Darphin range and I was quite impressed with some of the products. One that took me by surprise was the Darphin Aromatic Cleansing Balm with Rosewood, as I was quite impressed at how much I enjoyed this as a cleansing balm as it not only cleaned the skin throughly but also kept it feeling healthy and full of nourishment.Read More
