‘Just hands down the best all-round cleanser I have ever used,’ wrote one happy customer. ‘It smells and feels divine and takes off mascara effortlessly – I definitely notice less lash- loss when I use this and I love the cleansing cloths that come with this product.’

‘Been using this for more than 5 years and nothing beats this gem. It gives you luxurious and spa-ish feeling, a definite treat for the skin,’ agreed another, followed by a third who posted: ‘Smells amazing, removes heavy make up and leaves skin soft and plump. Love it.’

Particular praise was showered on the balm by those with acne prone skin: ‘For those with oily or acne-prone skin, like myself, it can be scary to use a cleansing balm (more oiliness?!) but honestly, this is such a great cleanser,’ wrote one.

So why exactly is this particular cleanser so great? Cult Beauty explain that it conditions as it cleanses, with ingredients such as wild sea fennel, vitamin E and rose oils to ‘rebalance and recapture radiance’. The way you massage the product into your skin helps to boost blood flow and plump your skin, whilst also unclogging congested pores.

Although the £30 price tag is towards the pricier end of the spectrum, according to those who’ve already got a pot, a little goes a very long way. So, if you’re in the market for a new cleanser that really works, it could be time to give this one a try…
