I have both the Glow oil as well as the serum so I was very eager to purchase the balm. And I was not left disappointed! It smells as heavenly as the oil and feels wonderful on the skin! But what I like the most is that it properly removed all makeup including water proof eyeliner and mascara without stinging in the eyes. And then it washes off without leaving any kind of stickiness (unlike other balm cleansers) which is very satisfying. Top tip: leave the balm on for 5 minuten before washing it off, it doubles as a facial!
Being introduced to GLOW IN A BOTTLE some time ago, I was extremely excited to receive this pot of wonders recently. The ANE brand seems to encapsulate quality, so the fact that it's a delightful cleanser that does what it promises is probably a mere prelude. What gets me every. single. time I start opening the lid is the sensory overload of serene relaxation. The fragrance is absolute heaven, and my face feels amazing, soft & beautiful. I don't think words can do it justice though... experience it for yourself!
I’ve always wanted a quick and easy way to get make up off so used an all in one water cleanser/toner. There are days I have to wear a lot of make up for TV work I do and I’ve spent ages scrubbing to get it all off and goodness knows how many cotton pads too! I really wanted a more environmentally friendly way to clean my face and remove make up. My challenge is that I have very sensitive and dry skin so a lot of products I react to and then have to wear more make up to hide the effects of the reaction! This cleansing balm not only feels and smells incredible but the minute you use it with the gorgeous soft flannel with lovely warm water you feel as if you are really pampering yourself and taking good care of you, which is so important but we often forget. The cleansing balm removes all the make up even on TV days and doesn’t react at all. My skin feels lovely and not dry in the slightest. I then use the serum and a little bit of glow in a bottle and I’m good to go! I always feel as if my skin is nourished and I never have any irritation. I recommend this product to everyone. Oh and an important thing to note is you need just a scrapping... less is more with this one!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review of our Radiance Reveal Cleansing Balm Genevieve. I'm so glad your skin is responding so well and that you enjoy using it so much, especially those pampering moments. We all need those! Love, Ané x
I've always used a cream cleanser and experimented with a natural foaming cleanser before I discovered this balm. I don't use soap on my face so my cleanser is a key part of my routine. It's the thing I rely on to make my skin feel really clean. Since using this cleansing balm, I get a bit nervy when I get towards the end of the jar because I can't stand the idea of running out. I've never found anything that makes my skin feel so clean and nourished. It's like a deep clean plus mini treatment all in one go. Sort of like a facial in a jar. It feels so special but the price point means I can use it every day. I always massage it in and add a little water, and then take off with my Ané cleansing cloth and plenty of warm water. I started using it at night to remove all my make up but now use it in the morning before my shower too. I'm addicted!
The smell. Oh the smell. Just dreamy! Super smooth and so easy to massage into your skin. You can feel (and see!) the makeup and dirt being lifted off. Then the magic happens by adding a little water to emulsify - so simply, but oh so effective. If you can, try this with Ane's awesome cloths. I actually sometimes use the exfoliating side first to scrub off the balm and then finish with the flannel side leaving skin silky smooth and clean (I think Ane helpfully suggests the other way...but I was to tired to notice one day and liked the new way round!). This product also looks fantastic on the bathroom shelf, and it's 100% vegan. AND, it's made with a blend of 13 nutrient rich plant oils...as a mum of a young baby I am all about products that do the job well, do the job easily, and add some nutrients back in. A multi-tasking balm that looks, feels and smells good. When is it back in stock?????
