Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm

Pixi Beauty Skintreats Nourishing Cleansing Balm Review


Cleansing balms are undoubtedly one of the most popular ways to cleanse, with brands of all budgets bringing out their own cleansing balms in the hopes of being the next cult must-have. I'm a big fan of cleansing balms myself, finding them more luxurious in texture and scent, nicer to massage into skin (as well as making you take the time to massage them in so that you properly cleanse your skin), as well as being more effective for me than foams, creams or lotions in removing makeup, dirt and impurities from my skin.

Pixi have been taking the beauty world by storm over the past year with their recently expanded skincare range. I recently shared my thoughts on the beautiful and highly effective Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist, a facial mist that has become one of my favourite mists yet - and a daily must-have product in my morning and evening skincare routine.

I've been trying out the Nourishing Cleansing Balm (£18) for just over two months now, using it on makeup free days as well as the odd occasion I've had time to pop some makeup on. The packaging is exceptionally light-weight, housing 90ml of product. It doesn't sound like much - it doesn't even feel like much -, but the sheer nature of this product is the perfect example of 'a little goes a long way' and it's set to last you a long time.

The formula is unlike any other cleansing balm I have tried before. You would think a product which has been created by so many different brands now would be quite standard in formula, texture, consistency and scent, but every cleansing balm I have tried has been unique. Scent wise this one is my favourite. It has the most beautiful soft scent; fresh, ever so slightly sweet, not too overpowering. The texture is deliciously thick, very light-weight in consistency and it feels absolutely heavenly to massage into my skin. What starts out as quite a thick balm soon dissolves to a more oil-like consistency when massaged in and it works wonders to get rid of makeup, dirt, grime and any other impurities you want to ensure are removed from your skin.

The ingredients list is impressive, lots of lovely ingredients that leave skin softened, hydrated, nourished, cleansed and protected, such as Sweet Almond Oil, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter as well as antioxidant Vitamin E. Removal wise I like to use a warm muslin cloth. It's not the easiest texture to remove; whereas most balm cleanses I have tried emulsify (turn into a milky liquid when rinsed away), the Nourishing Cleansing Balm doesn't and so I find it needs a muslin cloth to help remove it. However with a good muslin it's swiped away quickly and easily, leaving the most incredible look and feel to skin.

This cleansing balm leaves my skin softer than any other cleansing balm I've tried. In fact, more than any other cleanser I have tried. The way it makes my skin feel, whilst making my complexion look clearer, brighter and healthier, all whilst being effectively cleansed? I think it's safe to say it's taken top spot as the best cleansing balm I have ever tried.

    1. I use Micellar Water too, but that only does surface removal so I do it as a 'pre-cleanse' then use a proper cleanser :) xo
