Best Korean Cleansing Balm

Cleansing balms are a type of oil-based face cleanser that removes impurities, residual makeup and excess sebum from your skin. They are generally used as the very first step of a Korean skincare routine before face wash. Cleansing balms have a  creamy, rich and buttery texture that melts into  oil or lotion upon contact with body heat. They work by attracting and trapping oil molecules, dead skin cells, and other residual impurities on the surface of the skin and within the pores, giving your skin a thorough cleanse to prevent breakouts and clogged pores.

On top of its superb cleansing abilities, the best cleansing balm is gentle on the skin as they work by attracting oil and impurities on the surface of the skin and within the pores. After rinsing, they also leave a soft layer of moisture to prevent dehydration and an uncomfortable, tight sensation on the skin.

How to use Korean cleansing balm

As the first step of your skincare routine, scoop an adequate amount and apply it to a dry face. Gently massage in circular motions all over your face and let the cleansing balm melt to remove traces of impurities. Certain cleansing balms can be safely used around the lip and eye area, however, if you have very sensitive skin, it is recommended to use a Lip and Eye Makeup Remover. Once the best cleansing balm Australia has been massaged on your skin, rinse it with water and follow with a face wash to complete your cleansing routine, before following remaining skincare steps.

Just like cleansing gel, lotion, cream, cleansing oil and cleansing water, an additional step involving the use of facial wash will be required in most cases to remove any cleansing balm residue, to properly purify the skin. . By thoroughly cleansing your face with the best cleansing balm Australia, skincare products that are applied after cleansing can penetrate the skin easily to effectively target various skin concerns. To keep your skin moisturized after cleansing, apply your choice of Korean toner, essence, serum or ampoule and finish with a moisturiser to lock in the hydration and moisture

Who will benefit from the best cleansing balm?

The best cleansing balm Australia can be used on all skin types, including sensitive skin. Cleansing balms provide the skin with a gentle, deep cleanse to remove all traces of impurities without excessively stripping away moisture. This versatile Korean skincare product can be used as an additional step to your daily facial cleansing routine and will also benefit makeup wearers. Unlike conventional face cleansers, cleansing balms can cleanse stubborn, heavy and waterproof makeup such as foundations, eyeliners, lipsticks, mascara and so on that would be more difficult to remove with an ordinary face cleanser.

The addition of Korean cleansing balm to your skincare routine gives a better cleanse to clarify pores, prevent troubled skin, as well the formation of blackheads and whiteheads.

In addition, cleansing balms can be regarded as being more travel friendly as they are in the form of a solid-state, that will melt into a liquid form upon coming in contact with the body’s heat. Therefore, they can easily be carried around in a container without concerns of it spilling, allowing you to have a makeup remover handy whenever and wherever you need.

How to choose the best Korean cleansing balm?

In selecting the best Korean cleansing balms for your skin, it is recommended to correctly identify your skin type and skin concerns first. If you have oily, combination skin that is prone to acne and breakouts, look for non-greasy cleansing balms that contain gentle exfoliants like, AHA and BHA to remove dead skin cells and control excess oil production which leaves the skin clean and clear. For those with dry or mature skin, look for cleansing balms that contain fruit extracts to slough off dead skin cells and grime from the skin, as well as natural emollients like marula oil, shea butter, seed oils to keep your skin well-moisturised.
