Hi, I have happily been using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, currently out of it so using a trial Elemis Rose cleansing balm, this is lovely. Can anyone recommend anything at a more purse friendly level as I will need to get something in the next week or so.

The M&S pure rose cleansing balm is really nice. I’ve also heard good things about the Body Shop camomile one, though I’ve not tried it myself. And the Beauty Pie apricot one is lovely, though I don’t know if you’re a Beauty Pie member.

thanks i did just have a look at the M&S one, may just try that.

I like the body shop camomile one. It's in a tin too so eco friendly.

MabelMoo23 Sat 06-Jun-20 20:04:31

Body shop camomile- definitely. It’s a classic balm

Body shop one as mentioned above

Emma hardie is nice too but a bit expensive I think!

I really like the Aldi ones, I always return to Liz Earle but the Aldi ones are very nice.

Isn't there a super drug one?

My skin is prone to not liking scented products so I love clinique take the day of balm which is mega-neutral.

Try QVC for Elemis, I think they've got everything on 3 easy pays at the moment. Or try eBay! I love the Elemis cleansing balms, they're the best I've tried.

I have one on ebay for sale grin i don't get on with the beeswax and it brings me out in a rash but 2nd qvc for Elemis..

Would you believe, DD has literally just walked into my room and said "where's your Elemis cleansing balm? I can't find it" grin

I had an Emma Hardie trial size too, used that earlier in year. The Body Shop Chamomile is out of stock, thanks for all the suggestions. I will double check my samples box (does anyone else have a drawer full of unused stuff from Xmas/beauty boxes etc) and likely get the M&S one. I do use Aldi moisturiser daily.

The M&S rose balm is good, also Lush ultrabland too.
Clinique Take the day off;another one worth trying also.

Elemis all the way. I tried others looking for a dupe, but now just suck it up. The boots botanic was half arsed ok but a bit too waxy.

Everley Sat 06-Jun-20 23:04:59

I use the Elemis one and love it but have also really liked the Emma Hardie (can’t remember the price though) and Ultrabland from Lush.

Awhile ado I did a product test for a cleansing balm , it was fab but we weren't told the brand. Does anyone recognise it? it was a fairly bright yellow and had a really zingy lemon smell.

Boots No7 cleansing balm is nice.

asparalite Sun 07-Jun-20 10:14:49

Allbeauty have Elemis cleansing balm with a 20% discount at the moment.

autumnboys Sun 07-Jun-20 10:18:22

I like the Neals Yard wild rose balm, although it is expensive. Glass jar is good for recycling. Also, Lush Ultrabland, they’ll take the pots back, the Body Shop Camomile is good too. I shall put the M&S one on my list.

Coconut oil!

MrMeSeeks Mon 08-Jun-20 22:14:26

I use to love coconut oil, i swore by it, but i tried some this week and my face has broke out!
Clearly it did not like this one!

You can get 25 % off the elemis website with mary25

I also use the Aldi cleanse and polish dupe as a Liz Earl substitute. I stock up with several when they have it in stock... It is so cheap! If I accidentally run out I've also used the superdrug one and boots too and they've also been good.

Just plain grape seed oil and a hot cloth.
