We all have mornings when we wake up and our skin looks dull and tired. This is one of the most common skin concerns, especially with dry / aging skin types, or for many skin types when the seasons change. I’ve tried a lot of different types of cleansers: liquid cleansers, foam cleansers, cream cleansers. All of them are great in their own way, but balm cleansers are the most effective when dealing with skin lacking radiance.
The Organic Pharmacy Carrot Butter Cleanser (75 ml)* is a soothing and conditioning balm cleanser, suitable for all skin types. However, because of its moisturizing benefits, dry and dehydrated skin types would benefit the most from this cleanser. It’s rich with moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and with calming and healing ingredients such as marigold extract, lavender, and chamomile essential oils.
I easily swoon over beautiful packaging, because it’s even more fun to use a good product when it looks pretty as well. So, you can imagine how happy I was about using a cleanser from such a lovely glass jar. A small spatula is included, which makes the product use more hygienic. The Carrot Butter Cleanser also has a calming and sensual herbal scent that lifts the spirit and puts my mind into a positive and focused state. It’s especially helpful after a long day because inhaling this scent will make you sooo much happier and calmer.
Since this is a balm cleanser, it has hard consistency, which quickly melts into an oil consistency from the warmth of the skin. It’s important to know that all The Organic Pharmacy cleansers, including this Carrot Butter Cleanser, have to be used on dry skin. Apply a tiny pea size of the cleanser on your dry face, then, starting from your forehead, massage it in circular motions to lift your makeup and other impurities. The last part is the most important – to remove the cleanser and clean your face, use a wet, warm cloth (a muslin cloth or any type of reusable facial cloth, if your skin is too sensitive). I mentioned this because it’s almost impossible to wash off a balm cleanser with just water, it would not remove your makeup and would only make your face greasy. Cloth works as a gentle exfoliator and together with the cleanser removes dirt and leaves your skin soft and glowing. I’ve also tried using a konjac sponge for double exfoliation and it worked magic.
