What’s not in it?
acne/allergy/troubling for some ingredients?
Shea butter – and it’s a rich balm so you do need to flannel a few times to remove – which may be too hard on active acne.

It’s a lovely luxurious balm that feels nourishing almost immediately upon application.

Cleansing – first or second.

A few months.

What’s good about it?
This is a beautiful balm for those wanting something that nourishes as well as removing makeup. Clearly made by someone who understands the importance of taking the time to cleanse correctly, there is no rushing this product. I use it as a morning massage cleanse or an evening second cleanse. As always, I don’t want to waste it removing makeup.
What’s not so good about it?
I would go easy if you have active acne as you will probably remove the heads and make them bleed.
Works well with?
A good acid to follow.
What’s the website like?
Excellent. Full information on the product, access to Dija and easy to navigate.
