One of my New Year’s resolutions is to put more effort in to my skincare routine. My lovely other half got me a bunch of beautiful Trilogy treats at Christmas so I have no excuses now! I’ve been a fan of Trilogy products for a while and amongst the haul was the Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm which I had my eye on for a couple of months!
Made with mango butter, rosehip oil and coconut oil, this is a thick and luscious balm. To use, you simply scoop a small amount on to your fingertips and apply to your face. As you massage the product in, the balm begins to melt on your skin. I make sure that it’s evenly distributed across all areas and then work it in to my lashes at the end to help lift stubborn mascara residue. Then you just rinse the complementary organic cotton cloth in warm water and wipe over your face…and that’s it!
This gorgeous balm makes taking off your make-up so much more enjoyable! It’s quick, easy and fuss-free. Massaging in the balm feels like a little pampering experience and my skin is always left feeling nourished afterwards. I tend to use regular face cloths with this as it’s impossible to properly wash the cloth included after each use — it’s a shame that it doesn’t come with a couple of spares!
Retailing at around €25, this is a little on the costly side — especially compared to other make-up removal options out there. At the same time, however, a little goes a very long way and I think this pot is going to last me a couple of months. It also makes such a nice treat as it’s just lovely to use and feels really luxurious. Taking off make-up at the end of the day has always felt like a chore to me but this has made the process so much simpler and I really think my skin is all the better for it now!
