As a cleanser:
- Apply Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm to face when dry, massaging thoroughly to dissolve dirt and make-up. You can take the time to pamper yourself, or do it very quickly if you’re in a hurry.
- Run a clean flannel under comfortably hot water and hold it over your face allowing the steam to gently lift the dirt, make-up and dead skin cells.
- Wipe away residue leaving clean, hydrated skin. Use a muslin flannel for extra exfoliation.
- Repeat as necessary.
You don’t necessarily need a toner and you may not need to moisturise. If you do, use a small amount of Beauty Balm as a moisturiser.
We recommend oil cleansing your face morning and night. Where possible use a clean cloth for every cleanse. If you do need to reuse cloths dry them out between uses. Never leave a cloth in a soggy heap, it will become a home to harmful bacteria.
As a moisturiser:
Use sparingly, as a little goes a long way. Rub a small amount of Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm between your fingers then apply to your face, massaging in well until it has been absorbed into the skin.
As a primer
When using under foundation apply very sparingly and allow a few moments to absorb before applying make-up over the top. Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm will plump skin and prevent foundation from absorbing into very dry skin.
For dry patches:
Apply to any dry or chapped areas as required, such as lips, elbows or heels. For stubborn dry or rough patches use our Calendula and marshmallow Balm
This natural butter melts at body temperature which is why it glides on and absorbs so beautifully. For this reason it should be stored under 25°C or it will melt! The product can be reset by placing in a refrigerator, this process (if it's a one off) will not affect the efficacy of the product but it will affect it's texture. However, repeated heating and resetting will destroy beneficial compounds.
It may also melt if shipped to very hot climates. Please be aware, we will not replace or refund products that melt during shipping to known hot climates.
UV light destroys beneficial compounds, so store it in a dark place, or at least out of direct sunlight.
Unopened and stored in a cool dark place this product will keep indefinitely. Once opened it should be used within 12 months. Poor storage will shorten it's shelf life.
Try Oil Cleansing (also known as hot cloth cleansing)
This kit contains everything you need to try the oil cleansing method, a revolutionary new way to cleanse, exfoliate and remove make-up (even waterproof mascara) without stripping the skin’s natural oils. The kit makes a great stocking filler or secret santa gift because it's a new approach to skincare for most people and it often causes a noticeable improvement to skin quite quickly, especially if the user had particularly dry or oily skin before.
The kit contains:
1 x 8ml Beauty Balm (enough to oil cleanse for about a week)
5 x Basic muslin flannels
All packaged in a compostable bag
When you stop stripping the skins natural oils every time you cleanse, the result is improved skin barrier function which means moisture is sealed in. Consequently, skin remains plumped all day reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Oily and combination skin
Products for oily skin traditionally attempt to strip excess sebum. This actually often causes the skin to overcompensate producing even more sebum, making the problem worse. Try Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm to re-balance oily, or combination skin and reduce oily shine.
Skin prone to breakouts
Improving skin barrier also keeps out pathogens which can cause spots and infections. Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm will not block pores, it is noncomedogenic and it often settles skin prone to breakouts.
Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm is made with a very high percentage of sun-stable, tropical plant oils. These oils have evolved a myriad of anti-oxidants which prevent free-radical damage, a major contributor to premature ageing.
Complete skincare system
Use Lyonsleaf Beauty Balm sparingly to moisturise and nourish after cleansing, or as required. Because the flannels offer gentle exfoliation when cleansing, you have a complete, 100% natural, facial care system in one convenient little pot.
Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin and for people who may be prone to eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, acne, rosacea and perioral dermatitis. We do sell an unfragranced version of the beauty balm and we do recommend this for very sensitive skin (those who cannot tolerate essential oils). We don't have the unfragranced version of this kit, but you can buy a sample of the unfragranced beauty balm and the 5 basic flannels separately for the same price.
