There are two types of people out there: those who can’t fathom going to sleep with their makeup on and those who have mascara-stained pillowcases. The True Botanicals Ginger Turmeric Cleansing Balm ($48) is so good, it can convert even those who fall in the latter camp into militant p.m. face washers. It smells incredible, melts away makeup, and leaves your skin feeling clean and calm. The balm has been out of stock for months—and it’s finally available to shop again.
Yucca extract, turmeric, and mango butter come together in the formula to remove makeup—not moisture—from your skin. Plus, lactic acid and azelaic acid gently exfoliate, revealing a brighter all-over radiance. After using it, your skin will be clean, soft, and ready for bed. Bonus: It smells like vacation in a bottle—naturally scented with ginger root, mandarin, and neroli oils. Even if you typically avoid fragrance in your routine, as long as your skin isn’t super sensitive, this product likely won’t bother you since it doesn’t stay on your face for long.
“Oil cleansing balms remove oil-based impurities and free radicals that can lead to breakouts and premature aging,” Charlotte Cho, founder of K-beauty skin-care store Soko Glam and line Then I Met You previously told Well+Good. “Oftentimes we don’t realize how many impurities are on our skin, so cleansing specifically with an oil-cleanser to gently remove makeup, excess sebum, and sunscreen sets the canvas for clean, healthy skin.” Though True Botanicals recommends using this product on its own, you can follow up with a traditional cleanser for a double cleanse that will ensure your skin is extra clean and makeup-free.
True Botanicals Ginger Turmeric Cleansing Balm is a favorite among celebs, including Brooke Shields, who swears by the formula for removing her makeup at the end of the day. “What I love about this product is that it’s rich and creamy but doesn’t leave a greasy residue,” she said in a recent video.
To experience this level of clean bliss before you wind down for bed, snag the True Botanicals Ginger Turmeric Cleansing Balm before it’s gone again.
