The beauty balm

As well as being a makeup addict, I have recently become more obsessed with skincare. Good skin equals great makeup in my opinion. I have the odd battles with spots and pigmentation and  feel that I really need to look after my skin and at this stage I have a good skincare regime down.

However, there can always be more right? I was introduced to the Clinique Take the Day off Cleansing balm by the skincare guru that is Caroline Hirons and I wouldn't dare buy a different cleanser. It's this amazing balm that comes in a nice large tub, bonus points, and looks like..... lard, yum. 

You basically take a small amount cause you don't need loads, and spread it straight onto your face using nice firm motions to spread it all around. If I'm being crazy lazy, I don't use eye makeup remover, just this, and it takes everything off. Perfect for the lazy ladies who go to bed with their makeup on. Tut Tut.

The balm really does remove everything but doesn't strip the skin so there's no squeaky feeling after cleansing which I really hate. Instead the skin is supple, soft and beautifully clean.

The down side is that there is no lush smell and you feel like you have lard all over your face, and it's €28 quid which some might think is steep for a cleanser and it is, but, it works, really well. Simples.
