The JUNOCO Clean 10 Cleansing Balm contains only 10 ingredients but the key ingredient is fermented Japanese Pearl Barley that is a source of vitamins and antioxidants and helps brighten skin. Plus, the formula also has Vitamin E.
Full ingredients list:
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Synthetic Wax, Polysorbate 85, Saccharomyces/Coix Lacryma-Jobi Ma-Yuen Seed Ferment Filtrate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Water, Butylene Glycol
Texture-wise, this cleansing balm has a buttery-soft formula. It’s softer than other cleansing balms I’ve tried so far. The product comes with a small spatula, so you don’t have to use your fingers to scoop out the product.
The formula has a mild citrusy-sweet fragrance that I like. I appreciate that it’s not strong and doesn’t irritate my eyes, nor does it linger on my skin once rinsed off. The fragrance comes from the orange peel oil which is an essential oil (the brand states it’s less than 1% in the formula.)
I use this cleansing balm at night to take off my makeup and sunscreen. I scoop the balm out and massage it gently on my skin, the buttery solid melts into a silky oil as I apply it. I like to add a little bit of water which turns the balm into a milky consistency and then I wipe it off with a warm damp washcloth or cotton pads.
You can follow up with a water-based cleanser if you want, but this balm doesn’t leave any greasy residue. If you have oily or acne-prone skin though, a double cleanse is always a good idea!
This cleansing balm does a great job of dissolving all traces of makeup and SPF effortlessly, leaving my skin feeling clean and soft without any greasiness. I love how it removes waterproof mascara or eyeliner pretty easily too (no rubbing or tugging) and doesn’t sting or irritate my eyes. So, it really lives up to its claims and cleanses deeply while being gentle on your skin!
If you’re looking for a gentle and affordable cleansing balm that effectively removes all the makeup (including waterproof mascara) and grime leaving skin clean and smooth without a greasy feel, JUNOCO Clean 10 Cleansing Balm is sure to please!
Not to mention, it’s eco-friendly, vegan and cruelty-free! Available for purchase at junoco.com for $14.95
