The Inkey List – Oat Cleansing Balm Review


I’m a diehard fan of cleansing balms. I’ve bought and experienced around four of them from different brands. I love indulging in the whole cleansing ritual, experiencing different packaging, fragrances and textures. It’s almost very therapeutic. There’s something about cleansing balms that just amazes me. Their ability to effectively, yet ever so gently remove and dissolve all makeup from your face is just so awesome.  

First of all, a cleansing balm is an oil-based cleanser which tackles difficult impurities from one’s skin. Further, when it comes in contact with water it emulsifies and turns milky which further assists in washing off the product from the face along with all the impurities it has dissolved – for example your makeup, sunscreen, excess sebum and all the dirt and grime from your face. Unlike regular face washes, cleansing balms are generally applied on dry skin and then washed off using water.

My latest purchase is the “Oat Cleansing Balm” from the very well-known brand – The Inkey List!

Unlike my past cleansing balms, which have always been in jars, this one comes in a tube. With a jar cleansing balm, you also have an additional spatula tool to scoop the balm out from the jar, which you don’t get in this case because you just have to squeeze the product out like you would with your regular cleansers that come in a tube.

Now I’d like to take you through my experience with this product so far. I’m almost at the very end of it and my opinion on the product has come to form only after I’ve made use of the product for a fair amount of time.

All in all, it’s a great product. Apart from a few difficulties with regards to its texture there’s no other drawbacks. It’s affordable, it’s fragrance free. I believe it even works well with sensitive skin and it doesn’t dehydrate your skin. I’d like to rate it a 3.5 on 5!
