Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm Review

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balmimage

Price: HKD360
Volume: 70ml

I saw this Cleansing Balm along with the Cleansing Foam at the DFS counters and I just had to try them out 😀

Meant for the removal of heavy, waterproof makeup, this is a silky, almost sherbet-like cleansing balm that one would scoop out a dollar (or a quarter, if you’re American :D) sized amount with a spatula — or clean fingers — and massage it onto the mug full of base makeup before adding warm water to it for emulsification and then finally washed off to reveal a clean, hydrated, makeup-free mug 😀 I’d like to note here that I prefer to use a separate makeup remover for my eyes, but I feel that those of you who’d like a two-in-one product, this can also efficiently remove eye makeup 😀

Fortified with lavender and chamomile for a calming and relaxing experience, I love the process of removing my makeup every night because of how soothed my senses become from the light lavender and chamomile, while my skin is completely makeup-free and left without feeling tight or dehydrated <3 If you’re a newbie to the cleansing balm world, and you wanted to try this kind of product out before committing yourself to something spa-like and luxurious, aside from getting samples, I would suggest that you try the budget-friendly Banila Co. Clean It Zero Sherbet Cleanser as an introductory but effective product 🙂

I would like to note that although the cleansing power of this product is stellar, I’m not a huge fan of the packaging as it’s not travel-friendly; it’s quite a large and cumbersome plastic jar; I suppose that one could scoop some out into a clean jar but for trips, I’d probably stick with cleansing oils because those can be easily decanted and toted along. 🙂
