The ‘Cloud 9′ Deep Cleansing Balm cleanses and moisturises at the same time (unlike common cleansers). By using organic plant oils to dissolve the oily impurities in your skin it gently melts away daily grime, oxidised sebum (black heads), makeup and sunscreen without leaving your skin drier than an Australian desert.
Good cleansing is the cornerstone of healthy skin. Too often it is regarded as an inconvenient necessity so we choose a cheap cleanser. However cleansing with a product that respects your skin’s balance (acid mantle) is vital. You will get more benefit out of the headline acts – the serums and creams.
You may find that you need less of the expensive serums and creams when a quality, acid mantle loving cleanser is used.

There are lots of ways to use a cleansing balm, no right way and no wrong way, but here are 2 of our favourite ways 🙂 Option 1 (with water) – Mix an almond-sized amount in your hands with a few drops warm water to create a rich milk (just the smallest amount water should be enough because too much water will stop the balm from doing its job properly). Option 2 (no water) – Warm an almond-sized amount of cleansing balm in your fingertips. Option 1 & 2 – Massage into your face for around 30 seconds. You can leave it on for as long as you like for a big moisture boost and even deeper cleanse. Gently remove the balm from your skin with a warm damp Konjac sponge or soft cloth. Pat dry with a towel. Use morning and night. If you have blemish-prone skin and want to do a double cleanse with the ‘Tickled Pink’ Perfecting Tonic then dampen your face with tonic and massage your face and neck as you would a cleanser. Pat dry with a towel. Follow with your favourite toner or tonic (the Cloud 9 works beautifully with both the Raindrops on Roses Hydrating Tonic for normal, dry and sensitive skin and the Tickled Pink Perfecting Tonic for oily and combination skin). Apply your favourite facial oil or moisturising cream. If your skin is particularly in need of some pampering and a big moisture boost, wear the Cloud 9 as a mask! Importantly, please use clean, dry fingers when using your Cloud 9 Deep Cleansing Balm, and try to keep it out of the shower because water and steam may reduce its shelf life.
