Diptyque Nourishing Cleansing Balm, 100g

Product information

A white balm with the appearance of wax, transforms into a fine oil between your fingers, then into a milky emilsion on contact with water. It cleanses the skin, leaving it purified and as soft as velvet.
Sweet almond oil, with nourishing, soothing and regenerating properties is mixed with three essential waxes: refreshing yaln-ylang, softening mimosa and astringent geranium, and can be used as a mask.
Use daily, morning and/or evening. Scoop a small amount of the balm with the spatula. Apply to dry face and neck and massage gently. The balm turns into an oil and is easily smoothed over skin.

Brand Story

The diptyque story began in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain with, at its heart, three friends driven by the same creative passion. Christiane Gautrot was an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The first two collaborated designing fabrics and wallpaper for Liberty and Sanderson. They were joined by the third in 1961 and opened a shop to display their designs. Yves became the administrator and consultant; Desmond and Christiane were the artistic soul. Bit by bit, with finely honed taste, the trio transformed the site into a one-of-a-kind setting, a kind of stylish bazaar where one found surprising articles unmatched in Paris, mined and conveyed home by the trio over the course of their travels.

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than Emma Hardie's Cleansing Balm! (in my opinion) I am generally an Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm fan, see above, but I have to say Diptyque's Beauty Balm ticks more boxes. It's slightly thicker which I find better in the shower and I don't seem to use as much, the packaging is better quality as the screw top isn't as fiddly and the scent it nicer, very rose, almost akin to Turkish Delight. Although it's a bit pricier (by not a lot I might add) it is worth it. I am about to buy another product by Diptyque, so this could be the beginning to a new love affair. 22 September 2014
