A. Because it works
B. Because it makes me/you look better
And C. Because I can't live without it.
And the Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm is one of these things. When I enter it not a hall of fame I may have previously wrote about it, but I will only add it in the hall of fame if I've given it a good run of trying out plus I always give it a good benefit of doubt.
The reasons I like the Cleansing balm are because first of all it smells beautiful really earthy and woody, if I was going to get all adverty I would be saying as you smell it you can imagine yourself skipping through the woods la la la. But just to let you know I won't be doing that.... The balm feels a little bit waxy and oily to the texture so you only need a bit.
There are two ways to use it you can either whip it on and off for makeup removal and a cleanse or you can have it as a full on cleanse. To do the first step you massage the balm over your face AVOIDING your eye area. Then dampen your fingers and wipe over your face and then using the cloth provided with the balm wipe over your face and your makeup will be removed and your face will be clean.
The second way is my favourite but you have to have a bit of time for this one. Put a larger amount of balm over your face again avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 20 minutes then wipe off using the cloth provided and your skin will love you for that. My only gripe as I mentioned in my last review about the balm is that you cannot use it on your eyes, I've tried it and it stings like mad. So you will have to use a separate eye makeup remover.
The Elemis Pro Collagen Balm is available for £39.50 from many stores inc JohnLewis FeelUnique and many more.
