Rodial GLAMTOX Cleansing Balm Review




Hello Guys well hope your all well and loving the lighter nights I am its better for lots of things including photographing things and I have to be honest I'm more excited about that at the moment.

If your a reader of my posts you may know that i love skincare and as much as sometimes i do find it faffy getting rid of the makeup at the end of the day i do like the feeling of clean skin and i do like products that work without irritating the skin.  my skin is oily and a bit weird and sometimes doesn't like all products so i do have to be careful but i love buying and trying different things.

So after using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish for a while and still loving it but i ran out and thought i would buy something else for a change i bought the Rodial Glamtox Cleansing Balm.  Initially i was kind of sold on the bright pink box it came in, I'm such a sucker.  I hadn't read anything on this cleanser at all but i was hoping for good things as makeup wise I'm really into Rodial.  
So you open the box and your left with a shiny bottle which kind of looks too pretty to be in your bathroom, you get 100ml of product and you have to use it all up within 6 months but if your removing makeup everyday you would easily do this.  You also get a muslim cloth so the Liz Earle similarities continue, however thats where it ends as this product even though its a cleanser the balm game changes that.  

How to use: 

After a long day at work or college, however you do your cleansing routine, you simply pump a small amount into your palm and massage into your face including your eyes, then dip your muslin cloth into lukewarm water and wipe off, the feeling on your face is quite strange as you expect the texture to feel runny but upon impact to your skin you can feel it as a balm, once you add the water thats when the texture changes and the cleanser turns milky.

for me as i wear quite a lot of face and eye makeup so i use a miceller water after cleansing just to remove every bit of makeup as my like my face to be very clean, who doesn't i know, but if you don't wear lots of makeup you wouldn't need anything else.

I didn't and haven't noticed any negative changes to my skin using this, i did have one spot but thats not exactly going to end my usage of this.  I didn't notice any glowing effects or anything but i did like its cleansing abilities and how soft it made my skin feel and for just over £20 its not the cheapest but nor is it towards the high end either.

Have you tried this one or what is your favourite cleanser
