I mentioned this new balm very briefly in my post yesterday on the new Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser and just wanted to give you a bit more info about it. Here’s a little look at the Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm from the new Skintreats line. Available to order online HERE.

I have said this before, I really do like Pixi’s packaging and there are not many more exciting things in skincare than a fresh pot of cleansing balm. It just makes me want to dive in!

Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm Features

Now if you like a super thick and heavy cleanser, then this will really do it for you. If you prefer lighter formulations then you might want to steer clear because I think this is the heaviest cleansing balm I have ever used. It is so heavy that it’s actually pretty hard to get off.  As I massage it in, I can feel it sticking to my skin, and really just getting to work. The downside is that it is really tricky to remove and if you don’t like cleansers that leave behind a residue, you will hate this!

This isn’t a balm that emulsifies by the way. If you add water, it won’t go milky and there is no chance you can just rinse this away with water alone. You 100% need to use a damp cloth, muslin, flannel, whatever you fancy, to properly remove this, otherwise it will stick on your skin. I even find I need a tiny bit of handwash to get it off my fingers.

I have actually been trying the new Pixi Bamboo Cleansing cloth with this and it’s the perfect partner in crime. It lifts everything away and leaves behind soft, smooth, and clean yet nourished and moisturised skin. I still think you’ll need to cleanse again to get rid of any residue, which makes it the obvious choice as the first part of a double cleanse routine.

Don’t forget to wash out the sink when you’re finished because it leaves a scum around the basin that doesn’t rinse away on its own.

Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm is £18 and available now. You only need a little bit so a tub will last you a good while.
