Eve Lom's Cleanser gained cult status since its launch 30 years ago, but for some, the texture can be a little heavy. Enter Gel Balm Cleanser.

Harper's Bazaar named the Gel Balm Cleanser as the "Best Balm Cleanser" in their '150 Beauty Awards' last year, and since then, the popularity of Eve Lom's Gel Balm Cleanser has grown from strength to strength.

Why use the Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser?

If you love the traditional Eve Lom Cleanser, you will love the new Gel Balm version. Similarly, if you don't like the feeling of rich balms on the skin, you will still love this new offering from Eve Lom.

Most gel cleansers are formulated to relieve oily and combination skin using a blend of astringent ingredients. Eve Lom's version has shea butter as its first ingredient, making it the complete opposite.

It's an extremely moisturising and nourishing cleanser, making it perfect for all skin types, including dry and dehydrated. Additionally, grapeseed oil is infused into the cleanser, which not only helps to heighten its antioxidant levels, but also improve its conditioning abilities.

As the cleanser is massaged into the skin, it transforms from a gel-like texture into a milky formulation that helps to soothe sore and irritated skin, and leave the complexion beautifully soft and clear.

The Iconic Eve Lom Ingredient Blend

The Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser is formulated with the same incredible ingredients as its older sister: clove, eucalyptus, hops and chamomile oil.

  • Clove - This is a great ingredient for helping to treat acne, blemishes and pigmentation scars. Its incredibly anti-microbial properties help to fight off bacteria and keep the skin clean and healthy.
  • Eucalyptus - A great ingredient to use in the morning-time when you need to wake your skin up. Eucalyptus is both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, which helps to reduce irritation and redness on the skin. Perfect for when you need a flawless base to apply makeup.
  • Hops - A great source of antioxidants, hops helps to feed the skin with essential nutrients; keeping it youthful, healthy and glowing.
  • Chamomile Oil - A naturally healing ingredient, chamomile helps to soothe the skin and cleanse the skin without being too harsh, making it perfect for all skin types, including sensitive.
