Want to hear my thoughts on the White Rabbit Comfort Cleansing Balm?
When I first received the White Rabbit Comfort Cleansing Balm in a beauty box I’ll be honest, I was over the moon. From past experience using cleansing balms I’ve had a lot of success. My favourite so far has been the famous Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter. I know a lot of people have tried it and not thought much but I adore it. I love the way it smells and how it melts away my makeup without drying my skin out. Did I have a similar successful experience with this little blue tub? I’m afraid not. From first glance I was an eager beaver to try the White Rabbit product. But once I opened the tub and got cracking, it all seemed to go down hill from there. The first thing that I noticed was that the balm was ridiculously thick, like mega thick. I followed the application instructions and proceeded to massage the cleanser on my face and neck. Now at this point I felt as though I was applying thick lard to my face. It was honestly like popping pure grease on my face, certainly not something I want to experience when I’m simply trying to clean my skin. You’d think at this point things would get better, after all it was time for removal. Nope. Not the case. This balm is a NIGHTMARE to remove. When water hits it you get those horrid greasy droplets, quite similar to those that you get on your dishes (Weird, I know, but that is what it reminded me of!) Of course I used the soft white flannel that was provided but even with the help of that it was a task and a half. It just seemed to go on forever where I was wiping away the product. In the end I gave up. Although I’d removed the majority of the thick greasy substance, I could still feel an unpleasant layer upon my skin and so I reached for another cleanser, one that I knew would remove it. Basically my cleanser did the trick. It removed the product but it kind of defeats the point doesn’t it? I mean if I use a cleanser I want it to the trick. I don’t want to have to used another cleanser afterwards, followed by a toner. My skincare routine isn’t something I want to make longer and more time consuming, I want it to take less time and give me a little more time to do other things. Basically, I really did not enjoy this and I certainly wouldn’t purchase it, so the answer to the question is, no, I do not personally think it is worth buying. If you do however wish to try this for yourself, it is available to purchase for the rather reasonable price of £12.00 (see link above to order online)
