Ermana Natural Skincare Cleanse Balm.

One of the important skincare rules to follow is to make sure you cleanse your skin properly. The Ermana natural skincare cleanse balm with grapefruit and galbanum helps you achieve that goal, while still ensuring your skin is not overly stripped of its moisture. Cleansing skin to remove products you have applied, dirt, oil and pollution, will ensure your skin is clear of any impurities and will leave your skin prepared to accept and absorb your skincare products.

The double cleanse has become a popular method to ensure your skin is thoroughly cleansed and this method is used in the evenings. Cleansing balms are used first to break down waterproof SPF and makeup due to their oil content that breaks down and destroys their formulation content. Applying to dry skin and working the oil into the skin using circular movements will help distribute and evenly cover your whole face. Waiting for a couple of minutes will help the cleansing balm get to work before you proceed to wipe it off. You can use a wash cloth (flannel), a muslin cloth, or a micro-fibre cloth rinsed in hot water to effectively remove the cleansing balm for a deep cleansing experience.   
It is noted that if you do use water based serums in your skincare, then you must perform a second cleanse with your usual cleanser after your cleansing balm oil. The second cleanse using your cleanser will remove any traces of the oil, ensuring you your skin is thoroughly clean, but will help your water based serums penetrate and work to their full potential. The easiest way to remember is oil can penetrate water, but water cannot penetrate oil (it sits on top), this is why all water based products are applied first in your skincare regime, followed by your moisturiser, and then your chosen facial oil. Obviously if you don't use serums and are just wanting to apply a facial oil, then you are fine with just using a cleansing balm on its own without performing a second cleanse.
The Ermana cleansing balm is beautifully packaged and is situated in a glass jar with a screw off lid. Using a blend of natural ingredients to nourish and hydrate your skin, the balm also restores and tones for a healthier complexion. Suitable for all skin types the balms formulation is 100% natural and there are no sulphates, parabens, and no animal testing has taken place.

I love using cleansing balms to quickly and efficiently remove waterproof products immediately upon application. The product instantly melts when warming the balm between your fingertips before applying to your face. Skin instantly breathes a sigh of relief from the impact of hydration, while the citrus and woody scent reminds you of nature. No residue is felt on the skin after wiping off, but super soft skin and a healthier complexion continues to greet you.
