On a scale of "Not Recommended" to "Highly Recommended," she walks us through her cleansing balm journey in detail, and we really appreciate it. Not quite sure what the heck a cleansing balm is? "Formulated with a blend of essential oils and some sort of solid (often beeswax, other times mud), the formula polishes skin (especially when used in conjunction with a muslin cloth) while leaving it feeling hydrated and soft." The application is more involved than just washing one's face — a cleansing balm is applied to your dry face and then rinsed off with water and a wash cloth. We only rarely have that kind of time, and when we do, we want it to count. Hence the reluctance to go on a similar cleansing balm quest.
