You gotta love the rise of the cleansing balm in the world of beauty. I’m pretty sure it started with this one back in 2014 (I first saw them at a trade show) and now, so many lines have them, and I’m delighted by that fact! The latest I’ve tried is the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm ($64/3.7oz @ elemis.com). It contains extracts of English Rose Oleo, the key ingredient. Their oleo is made of 17 different varieties of English roses. Why so many types and why rose? Rose is a big ingredient in skincare not only because of its antibacterial and astringent properties but also for the way it calms skin and help with redness and acne.
