As you may have seen in my most recent haul post, I purchased, upon recommendation from @thataylaa, the @physiciansformula The Perfect Matcha 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm (normally $13.49 for 1.4 ounces, but currently on sale at @walgreens for $7.77 – https://shopstyle.it/l/6rzL). Cleansing balms are my preferred method of makeup removal, so I was excited to possibly replace my more expensive holy grail with this drugstore option!
What it claims:
🔘 Ultra-gentle 3-in-1 cleansing balm that melts away makeup, deeply cleans away impurities and leaves the skin fully supple and hydrated
🔘 Antioxidant-packed and enriched with Matcha Green Tea, Bamboo Shoot, and Lotus Extract
👍🏻 I thoroughly enjoy the price – especially when it’s on sale.
👍🏻 The packaging is much more travel-friendly than my current holy grail (Clinique’s Take The Day Off Balm) because it’s smaller.
👍🏻 The texture is very nice and feels pleasant on the skin.
👍🏻 I used it for the first time last night and it took off all of my makeup – even the several layers of mascara I was wearing, which is where other makeup removers struggle in my case.
👍🏻 It left my skin feeling hydrated and not stripped, but without the residue that most cleansing oils and balms leave behind.
👍🏻👎🏻 The only difference between my holy grail and this is that the @physiciansformula took just a little bit more rubbing to get everything loosened up. However, for the price, I am willing to put in just a tad more effort.
I am very happy I tested this out! While I still love my holy grail and will still recommend it to people looking for a highly effective cleansing balm, I’ll now be including this product on that recommendation list as well! I will absolutely be stocking up right now because I don’t want to miss out on the sale!
