Since I was talking about cleansing balms the other day on Instagram, I thought I might as well review the cleansing balm that I have currently in use: the Labiotte Wine Sherbet Cleanser. This cleansing balm was provided to me by BBCOSMETIC. But the review is so delayed, because I had so many cleansers to use up first…
Labiotte is a korean cosmetics brands that gained a lot of attention with their Wine Lip Tint. These cute, Korean lip tints came in a tube, shaped like a miniature wine bottle. Even I couldn’t resist to buy one of those, although I have more than enough lip tints. If you love these kinds of themed packaging designs, you can also fall easily for this product here: The Labiotte Wine Sherbet Cleanser is shaped like a glass of red wine!
The plastic jar is so adorable and it is hard to resist to take some themed pictures with it :D The jar contains 80 ml, by the way, and lasts for quite some time, if you are not a daily heavy makeup wearer like me. So, for those of you who never heard about cleansing balms or sherbet cleansers: These balm-type cleansers are made to melt off the makeup from your face. The firm texture melts down to oil by the warmth of your face, while you rub it on your face to remove makeup and other impurities. Then, when you wash your face with water it emolifies to a milky texture to wash all away. Usually, after using an oil cleanser or a cleansing balm, you are supposed to do second cleansing with a cleansing foam or gel.
When removing the lid of the glass-shaped jar you will discover a spatula and a second plastic lid. You can use the spatula to scoop out the balm from the jar and keep it more hygienic. The cleansing balm itself has a light pink color and a floral/fruity scent, which is pleasant. The ingredients of the cleansing balm are:
Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Mineral Oil, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, PEG-10 Isostearate, Polyethylene, C13-15 Alkane, Eclipta Prostrata Extract, Melia Azadirachta Branch/Leaf Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Mesembryanthemum Crystallinum Extract, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Wine Extract (1 ppm), Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Extract, Prunus Mume Fruit Extract, Trihydroxystearin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Butylene Glycol, Water, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance
You can check the ingredients via SkinCarisma. They really do a nice ingredients analysis on their page. The balm is free from talc, sulfates, propylene glycol, formaldehyde-releasers, dye, alcohol, parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate, formaldehyde, PEG, coal-tar, triclosan, and silicons silicones. And yet there are some beneficial ingredients, too. You will spot Lactic Acid for skin conditioning, Wine Extract as antioxidant, Glycerin as skin conditioning ingredient, and of course oils, like olive oil, moringa oil, and grape seed oil. If you have sensitive, allergic skin and skin troubles a closer look at the ingredients list is always advised. Do a patch test before using cosmetics anyways.
Here you can see how the balmy texture turns into oil once it comes into contact with the skin. Nevertheless, I didn’t feel that it leaves a greasy or uncomfortable feeling after washing it off.
When it comes to makeup removing this cleansing balm takes everything off and is very reliable. So far it never has failed me and is really a nice cleansing balm, that comes with a cute packaging on top…and a nice smell. I can recommend to give it a try!
I received this cleansing balm from BBCOSMETIC where it retails for 16.65 US (I don’t know if the code Q2C8JX9N45R3O for a chance of 10 % off your order is still valid). You can also get the Labiotte Wine Sherbet Cleanser on amazon.com for 20.55 US$ or amazon.de for 16.40€.
