Cleansing Balms to Break Up the Beauty Buildup

By  April 01, 2014

With loads of makeup, clogged pores, and even dry skin, sometimes it takes more than your average cleanser to get skin squeaky clean. If a foamy or creamy cleanser isn’t taking care of business, a cleansing balm may be your best bet for a clearer complexion. With essential oils to moisturize the skin and added ingredients to boost brightness, soothe, or prevent aging, there are plenty of options to play with. Slather one on like a mask, let it power through the dirt and grimes for half an hour, and wipe your way to a fresher face with these favorites:
