Happy Sunday! Another cold and cloudy day here but perfect for a home pampering session! 🌊☁️🛁 As you might know I went on a not so tiny shopping spree😉 at @diptyque sample sale and am now ready to do a mini #beautyreview of their #NourishingCleansingBalm
🔵 Smells like fresh roses! Beautiful and refined scent of geranium rose that's not overpowering but sadly it dissipates much too quickly.
🔵 Texture is very thick yet silky like butter. It emulsifies with skin contact but I found it best to add a few drops of Diptyque's Rose Water.
🔵 It does an incredible job at removing waterproof makeup but it's hard to clean around the lash lines as I have very sensitive eyes.
🔵 Ingredient list is a bit problematic for me. While it has great items like Sweet Almond Oil, Ylang-Ylang, Mimosa, natural waxes, and is free of alcohol and parabens it does include some controversial and comedogenic ingredients like BHT and Retinyl Palmitate both of which have been linked to cancer. Some studies have shown that trace amounts of these ingredients in cosmetics are safe and only considered dangerous if consumed in food but still.
🔵 Packaging is a typical clean classic style that you've come to expect from Diptyque. A sturdy plastic jar with a spatula (although I do wish it had an inner compartment like Erborian).
🔵 Price is definitely high at $65. Thankfully I got mine on sale!
🔵 Final thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised by how effective it was at removing stubborn makeup but in the end I still prefer my HG Bioderma, especially for the eyes. I expected a stronger longer lasting scent considering this is from a fragrance brand. The ingredient list isn't ideal but I've looked at many competing balms and they all have either acne or safety triggers 🤷♀️ It's a nice balm if you can get it on sale and prefer balms over micellar water but for me I'm unlikely to repurchase.
