Oat Cleansing Balm

product review positives
A great multipurpose balm I remember being desperate to get my hands on this cleanser for ages but it was sold out everywhere, but I eventually managed to get it and found that it was worth the wait. I've never been too fond of the inkey list's packaging, however I'm willing to overlook that as the quality of the product is more important, and you do get a decent amount of product for a very fair price with this one. This cleansing balm is a great option for a first step cleanse - for those who wish to remove makeup and SPF before going in with another cleanser to remove dirt and impurities - or as a standalone product for those with sensitive or extremely dry skin. This product has a short but effective ingredients list, the main selling point ingredients being colloidal oatmeal and oat kernel oil, both soothing, hydrating and repairing ingredients. This is a very gentle cleansing balm that won't disrupt the skin's barrier. For my personal experience, I really enjoyed it for the most part. I found it was very effective at removing my waterproof mascara, eyeliner and SPF. This balm was soothing to use and my skin always felt softer after use. I personally prefer to use a gel cleanser after the cleansing balm, because I have oily skin but I think it would be okay to use it as is if you have dryer skin. One thing to note is it has a bit of a grainy texture, which I don't mind but those with sensory issues should be wary of. The inkey list states this cleansing balm can be left on for ten minutes as a hydrating face mask, but I did not find this beneficial to my skin personally.
product review negatives
Now for the reason I removed a star. I really do like this cleansing balm, but I feel the manufacturing can be quite inconsistent. Sometimes, it's so thick that it's almost impossible to squeeze out of the tube, and other times when I squeezed the tube I got a straight jet of oil shot at me. I was rather disappointed with how much each bottle varies, as the first tube I got made me feel this could really be a holy grail product for me. I would like to note that I have also seen others have similar complaints about inconsistencies with the product.

I used this but found it was a bit to difficult to remove. It was a bit thick but I just saw a suggestion that said you're supposed to rub it in your hands until it becomes an oil. I'm going to repurchase and try that.

The consistency can change because of weather conditions maybe? Got days they might get slightly oily and cold days firm. In regards to use, the best thing to do is to put a small amount in your hands, rub them very well until it becomes oil and then clean your face with it. I'm crazy to buy a new one for myself.
