Regular followers will know that I like to double cleanse especially in the evening when removing makeup and my ideal first cleanse is a balm cleanser. As it turns out, it seems that JUNOCO – a beauty and skincare brand from California – had also noticed my love for balm cleansers and they asked me if I’d like to give their Clean 10 Cleansing Balm a try. They told me that they love to spread the word about the great results that can be achieved from double cleansing with their balm.
Launched last year, the Clean 10 Cleansing Balm has become a firm favourite with JUNOCO fans as it easily removes makeup, SPF, and all the dirt of the day as the first step of a double cleansing routine. It’s affordable, vegan, cruelty-free, and it does not leave any greasy residue which makes it suitable for all skin types.
Clean 10 Cleansing Balm is a unique oil-based cleanser developed to remove even waterproof makeup and perform multiple tasks. It has only 10 ingredients but heavily depends on its star ingredient, Japanese Barley Magic. Pearl barley, sourced from Japan, contains various components that help prevent external damage to the skin by moisturising and brightening hyperpigmentation. It also contains vitamin E which helps with moisturising and anti-aging. The technology applied cleanses skin without stripping natural oils. The other key ingredient is California-sourced tangerines which provide the fresh scent of the balm and its natural pigment.
The suggested application method is:
- With clean hands, use the included spatula to scoop a generous amount of balm onto your hand.
- Warm up the balm with dry fingertips until it transforms into a silky, smooth oil. I find that there is little need to warm up the balm as it is a very light texture and easily transforms into oil
- Gently massage the balm into your skin with gentle circular motions. Rinse off with lukewarm water or wipe off using a warm, damp washcloth. I most often use a washcloth but alternatively, the Cleansing Cookie (pictured above) works really well, I find it very soft and absorbent so would suggest you squeeze it out well before using it to remove the balm.
- Follow with the Clarifying Cleansing Powder for the ultimate double cleanse. I haven’t experienced this product yet, but of course, you can use your usual cleanser, I prefer a foaming cleanser for my skin type but use your favourite or try this one and follow with your favorite serums, moisturiser, and SPF.
I’ve been using this Clean 10 Cleansing Balm every day since I received it, my other more expensive bran is in my drawer as back up and I love how this leaves my skin feeling clean and soft and the scent is heavenly. The balm currently costs £13, the cleansing cookie £7, and the Clarifying Cleansing powder £15. Also, there are bundles to be had of these and other of their gorgeous products all available at JUNOCO.
