Is Clever Cleansing Balm oil-free?

No, but we do avoid using comedogenic oils that are known to cause breakouts.

How long will one bottle last?

If applying 3 pumps, twice a day, one bottle will last approximately 45 days.

How long is a bottle good for after it's been opened?

All of our products have been tested for efficacy and stability for 9 months after opening.

How many pumps should I apply?

We recommend using 2-3 pumps for cleansing and 3-5 pumps if applying as a hydration mask.

How is it that a cleanser can be used a facial mask too?

Whilst many cleansers use powerful cleansing/foaming agents that work for a quick cleanse with a thorough rinse, they often cause irritation if left on the skin. Clever Cleansing Balm is different, though, because of the usage of sugar esters as a primary ingredient. Sugar esters work as a natural, gentle cleanser and hydrate by binding water and oil to effortlessly remove impurities. The fatty acid-rich sugar ester is non-irritating and helps reduce sensitivity whilst enhancing the absorption of other ingredients into your skin, making it ideal for a multipurpose product like our cleansing balm.

    Feels luxurious

    A great investment - dispenses the perfect amount which goes a long way. Off on holiday next month and love that the standard size products are great for travel

    I really like this product. I use as a waterless cleanser in the morning and sometimes as a second cleanse in the evening (I like to use an oil cleanser first). I've also tried it as an overnight mask - all good and effective. I really like this range.

    Best cleansing balm I have ever used

    Gorgeous cleansing balm. Leaves my skin feeling so clean, soft and hydrated. Solved my dry patch above my upper lip which I’ve had for years!! Fantastic for travelling and great for using on long haul flights. Taking the all day serum and hydrating moisturiser to Canada to keep my skin supple and hydrated in the cold weather. Amazing skincare!

    Took a lot to remove my make-up

    It feels lovely and isn't drying. I bought it for travelling longhaul, not wanting to use the water in the aircraft toilet for rinsing, but this needs warm water and a face cloth together with quite a lot of the product to completely cleanse. So it's a nice cleanser but didn't fulfil the purpose I bought it for and is rather expensive as an everyday product - I'd probably need 2 bottles of it a month. My Beauty Pie cleansers last so much longer.
