10 Cleansing Balms That You Will Want to Swap Your Regular Cleanser For

Cleansing Balms FIf you have not tried a cleansing balm yet, what are you waiting for? A cleansing balm is not like your creamy or frothy cleansers. You might have seen one in the skin care aisle but just assumed it was a day cream because the majority of cleansing balms are packaged in similar jars. It’s not just their packaging that is different. They normally start off as a solid then melt onto your skin. You apply them to dry skin then wash them away with a muslin cloth, and they get rid of dirt, oil and makeup. That includes stubborn eye makeup.
