Product Details

Application

The Cleansing Balm is a solid salve that melts into a luxurious milky cleanser when water is added. May be used as a complete cleanser on its own, or as the first step in a double cleanse regimen, followed by The Cream Cleansing Gel.

  • Use fingertips to massage a pea-sized amount of balm into dry skin, paying special attention to areas where dirt, oil and stubborn makeup accumulate.
  • Add water to emulsify, and continue to massage.
  • Soak 'The Cloth' in warm to hot water and apply gently to the skin in circular motions to remove impurities and excess balm.
  • Pat skin dry before continuing with the rest of your Augustinus Bader skincare regimen.
  • Rinse 'The Cloth' thoroughly and allow to hang dry between uses.
