How Do I use it?

I use it as first step of my double cleansing routine in the evening. If you don’t know how double cleansing works, you can read about it here. The cleansing balm comes with its own small spatula, that fits inside of the packaging – so practical and hygienic! – and scoops out the balm nicely.

Here you can see the small spatula.

I scoop out a small amount, maybe a quarter of a walnut, warm it up slightly in my hand and then I massage it onto my skin. Then I work it in for a bit and then I wash it off with luke-warm water, which takes everything off easily. Next is my water based cleanser to complete the cleansing process.

Texture of I’m From Fig Cleansing balm

The balm is solid, but not hard. You can easily scoop out the product with a spatual. After warming it up slightly with your fingers, it melts effortlessly and creates a smooth, not too oily, not to grippy texture. It’s very relaxing and comfortable to massage around the face. It’s not runny, so nothing will get into your eyes, and it’s not too firm either, so you don’t have to drag your skin. When you wash it off with luke-warm water, it emulsifies and is easy to take off.

The cleansing balm is very effective at breaking up sunscreen and makeup. It helps to cleanse the skin effectively. If you take some time to massage it in around the nose, the blackheads appear less visible after the cleansing process. After cleansing my skin is clean and feels smooth, not dry or irritated at all. Overall, I really enjoy using this cleansing balm and tend to pick it whenever I want to take my time with skincare and really unwind. It doesn’t take long to cleanse your skin, but it’s very pleasant to keep massaging your skin for a bit.
