Cleansing balms are such a lovely way to clean your skin – the slippy texture means that it is almost impossible not to massage and massage and massage, which of course, your skin loves! The more you get the blood flowing via massage the better it is for good circulation that leads to a healthy glow. This cleansing gel from Elemis has all the gorgeous tactile elements of a balm but is lighter weight making it a good option for those with oilier skin types that find balms a little too heavy. Once you’ve applied to the complexion and massaged it with your fingertips, the addition of water turns it into a rich milk. It contains Argan oil, rice silk (to mattify) and Moringa peptides – all round good stuff for skin especially in summer when oily skins can suffer the most.
