Balm Balm 100% Organic Coconut Cleanser

Balm Balm 100% Organic Coconut Cleanser

Coconut oil is the latest fashionable beauty secret, fantastic for your body both inside and out. It is nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals.  You can use in cooking/baking or apply directly to skin/hair. It is ideal for dry and sensitive skins.

Following on from my Purely Natural review (click here), if you are looking for an effective and simple cleanser then take a look at Balm Balm.  Their light coconut cleanser is one of my favourites.  Sure the packaging is a not thrilling and a little clumsy (spillage is an issue for me) but it removes make up and leave skin soft and clean.  From my experience, oil cleansers are best removed with (depending on your preference) muslin, bamboo or cotton cloths.

  5. Hi Sarah,

    Hmmmm I'm a little confused, is this cleanser 100% coconut oil? If it is how can it be poured if coconut oil is solid below 24 degrees? I have some Viridian 100% Organic Raw Virgin Coconut Oil and its solid and in a jar, it's 500ml for £14 so you get 400ml extra for £2 extra. Might be worth a look! I use mine in my raw cooking recipes and not on my face! :)

    Love Danny x

      You should try coconut on your skin it's wonderful, I have LivPurely Vanilla & Coconut moisturiser and it smells like cakes :)

  6. I hated coconut on my face. I would use it at night to remove my mineral makeup and after a while my pores were looking gross. I stopped using it and things are looking much better. I still love coconut oil for removing my eye makeup and as hair masques :)

    1. That is a shame that you dislike coconut oil on the face as I think it's fantastic I don't have the same problems you describe. Of course everyone's skin is different that's what makes the world a special place :)

  7. I always use coconut oil as make up remover:) I've posted about coconut oil before here:
    http://lovelycosme.blogspot.com/2012/07/adara-organic-coconut-virgin-oil-in.html

    Just like Danny said,I wonder how this balm balm coconut oil isn't solidified at your room temperature.Since you've written that it's extracted from coconut butter(I read it as"a solidified coconut oil"),so this one maybe a coconut oil derived product.That's why it's so light :) Make me want to try the difference;)

    1. Clearly I didn't understand the difference when writing this blog. On a side note my room temperature has been enough to keep my LivPurely coconut moisturiser liquid. It has been warm in the UK.

  8. I love this organic coconut cleanser! I'll be using this together with the other coconut products that I use like my coconut oil for hair and the coconut cream I use for my dry, flaky skin.

    1. I don't know what it would be like or how good as I don't wear eye makeup but according to their website it is suitable for this task
