I sadly discovered that boots have discontinued my beloved cleansing balm for very dry skin. It’s the only product I’ve been able to find that takes off my make up properly without setting off my sensitive, eczema prone skin.
Anyway I tweeted them and they suggested this new product as shown in the photo I’ve attached. Wondered if anyone has tried it? The reviews on the boots website are all positive but not sure if trustworthy?
I've majorly gone off No7 in the last couple of years, but was given this one and started using it after my Eve Lom cleanser was finished. I really really like it, it does a lovely job and leaves skin feeling fab. Now Eve Lom will still surpass it, they are very different cleansing calms but not in a bad way. I will repurchase when it's gone. I'd prefer it to No7 hot cloth cleanser which I loved.
I'm a great fan of cleansing balms and am using Clinique Take the Day off which is lovely and makes my skin feel really soft. I'm on my third pot, with one in reserve. Being a bit of a beauty junkie that is amazing for me as I am always tempted by the 'Next Big Thing'.
However, I am tempted by the No. 7 one as it's cheaper than the Clinique, and I tried a little bit when I was in Boots the other day. I might wait until they're doing their £5 off voucher and try it then.
Thanks for all the recommendations, just don’t want to make my eczema worse. Clinique sounds like it could be a winner but pricey! I have a no7 voucher so I guess I could try the new cleansing balm and return if I have a flare up
