Top 5 Korean Cleansing Balms
Feeling Overwhelmed By The Different Korean Beauty Cleansing Options? We're making it easy for you with this round-up of the best on the market.
But first things first -what are they and how do they work?
Cleansing balms are a type of oil cleanser. They go on as a solid balm and transform into a liquid while rinsing off. Once you scoop them out and apply them to a dry face, you'll notice that they actually have a soft and lightweight texture that feels nice on the skin.
You should use a cleansing balm if you wear makeup and/or sunscreen. They're perfect for breaking down thick makeup, mascara, eyeliner and SPF. Ideally, if you're using a cleansing balm you should follow up with a second water-based cleanser to remove any non-oil based impurities in the skin. This is known as a "double cleanse".
