Welcome back to Fashioneyesta.com!
I hope you are all enjoying the festivities of the season (if your reading this blog in December of course) Today I wanted to share a blog with you on a topic that I thought some of you may be interested in.
Some of you may have heard of this beauty craze that has made itself prominent over the last few months and that is, cleansing balms.
Now for any of you who don’t know what a cleansing balm is it is basically a cleanser for your face that is made with rich ingredents like butters, plant extracts and oils to help brake down your makeup and can be used on a daily basis in your skincare routine to help cleanse and moisturise your face. And in my opinion, they are one of the skincare must haves for every lady, especially at this time of year when the trails of Winter like central heating and windy days are beginning to have their affects on your skin and can really dry out your skin making it look tired and depleted.
But of course with there being so many to choose from on the market it can be really daunting to know which one to pick.
So, in todays blog I have selected my top 4 cleansing balms that I would recommend to you and what makes them unique.

How To Use Your Cleansing Balm
To begin with I first of all want to impart some knowledge on how to use your cleansing balm in the correct way, so here is my guide to using one in a few easy steps.
- Cleansing balms are best used in the evening when you are removing your makeup.
- First of all take a small amount of your cleansing balm and massage it into your face for around 5-10 minutes to let the balm do its work.
- Once you have massaged it into your skin, you then take a warm, clean, wet flannel and pat this all over your face to get the product off. You will find this helps to brake down your makeup so that you are left with clean, moisturised skin.
- Pat your face dry with a towel and you are good to go.
Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter: Best Value For Money
Brand: Body Shop

Accessibility: 4/5 The product comes in a circular shaped tin and has good colour contrast of a white background against black text, however the brand does not incorporate braille onto their products which is the one let down of the brand as a whole.
This is one of the best value Cleansing Balms that is available on the nigh street that delivers fantastic results just as the more upper market ones would. This balm has been made with calming camomile to sooth the skin and prevent redness and irritation and the formulation of the balm is designed to help break down makeup and leave your skin feeling cleansed and moisturised. I use this on a regular basis and this is my current favourite, it glides on smoothly to the skin and can be easily washed off. It is the perfect go to cleansing balm for anyone who is a novice to the cleansing calm craze.
Neals Yard Remedies Wild Rose Balm: Good for Young Skin
Brand: Neals Yard Remedies

Accessibility: 4/5 The product is kept in a dark blue jar which is distinctive in colour and the scent of the product is also very destintive. The colour contrast is relatively good of a black text against a cream coloured background. Again the brand looses out on a mark due to the fact that they do not include braille.
This is one of my all time favourite cleansing balms and I used this one a lot during my teenage years when I found that my skin was becoming imbalanced due to signs of oiliness on the T Zones or dryness. This is the perfect cleansing balm for young skin due to the fact that its main ingredient is Rose which is known to help balance the skin.
The balm is also formulated to gently exfoliate and moisturise the skin, its the perfect weekly cleanser to use for anyone who feels their skin needs a bit of a revamp.
It also contains geranium, starflower, hemp and rosemary oil to help de clog your pores and to enrich the skin to give it an ultimate boost.

From: Liz Earle

Accessibility: 4/5 The colour contrast is good consisting of a light green background with black text in a clear font and the bottle itself is made of a durable material and is made with an easy to use pump dispenser. However, the brand again looses a mark due to the fact it does not incorporate braille on its products.
This is the perfect cleansing product to use for anyone with dry or mature skin due to its rich ingredients of beeswax, camomile, eucalyptus and cocoa butter to moisturise and soothe the skin. It is a great product to use on a daily basis due to its gentle formulation and its rich ingredients that really help keep your skin in good condition or those harsh winter days. It also helps to remove excess makeup and is safe to use (in moderation) around your eyes.

Accessibility: 4/5 The product has the best use of colour contrast of a black background with bold white text and the product has a distinctive scent. The pot is made from a plastic material which makes it durable and easy to use. However, the brand does loose a mark due to the lack of braille.
This is one of the best cleansers to use for anyone with sensitive skin it is made with the best or natures bounty including Honey, Rose Water, Almond Oil and Fresh Iris Extract. This is truly a product for those of you who want to give your skin a real treat and want to have a good cleansing routine that allows you to take off your makeup without stripping your skin of its natural oils and elasticity. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has skin problems like dryness or inflammation. The best thing about Lush as a brand is that they make their products using fair trade, organic ingredients and there money goes back into these communities and other wonderful campaigns that help with issues such as conservation, human rights and equal opportunities.
