Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm

Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm by What Laura did Next

My skin has been playing up over the last few weeks becoming very dry, irritated and stressed out, so I decided it was time for a little change to my skincare routine

Enter Sunday Riley's Blue Moon tranquility cleansing balm. After trialing the Good Genes product, and reading so many rave reviews about Luna Oil, I thought I'd give this one a whirl. 

This cleansing balm is a must for all the dry skinned people out there - If your skin is sensitive, stressed or affected from the change in weather, central heating and/or air conditioning then this balm will soothe and make angry skin look and feel calm. 

The balm itself is hard, and a little tricky to get out the pot if I'm honest but it warms onto the skin turning into a soft fluid. It lifts all your makeup including the hard-to-budge products, and is totally eye-friendly unlike other cleansing balms which I've found to irritate.

The key ingredient is Blue Tansy Oil, a smurf-like blue colour - don't be alarmed when you open the pot for the first time, it will not turn you blue! You also have Chamomile, Cocoa and Moringa butter in there to help calm, nourish and hydrate your skin. 

To remove, you simply grab a warm damp face cloth and wash it off. What's more, it doesn't leave your skin feeling oily or greasy after.

Now, as it's the festive season this will get your skin feeling a little Christmassy as well. Why? because it smells just like chocolate orange! Clementine Petitgrain, Vanilla and Tangerine have been added to the mix and OMG, it took me a lot of strength not to want to eat it just to see if it actually tastes like chocolate.

I love a multitasking product as I feel like I'm getting more for my hard-earned money, and this product doesn't disappoint - as an added bonus, it can be layered on a little thicker and left for around 20 minutes as an amazing, super hydrating mask. 

If you're familiar with Sunday Riley, you'll know that the brand aint exactly cheap. This balm retails at £46 which, may have a lot of people switching off straight away. BUT, the pot is pretty big, and a little goes a long way. Maybe it's one for the Christmas list? For me, this product will be part of my daily routine from now on - I can't recommend it enough.
