Angela Langford Clean Sweep Cleansing Balm



Since I discovered cleansing balms last year, I think I've become a little obsessed, pretty much wanting to try every single one under the sun! I've managed to stay sensible though by limiting myself to only one at a time! For the past couple of months now, Angela Langford's Clean Sweep Cleansing Balm* has taken prime position for the evening makeup removal and cleanse.

The cleansing balm comes packaged in a squeezable plastic bottle with a flip-out cap at the bottom. I think I'd describe the balm itself as slightly lighter in texture than some others I've tried, which is great as it means it's not too rich for my combination skin, even during summer. To use, Angela recommends a pea sized amount warmed between your hands and massaged into the skin. I often use a little more on days I've been wearing makeup, and then go back for a second cleanse with the pea sized amount.

Angela's organic muslin face cloth* is perfect for removing the cleansing balm. The cloth is a lot better quality than most, retaining heat so much more effectively. Even though it doesn't feel at all scratchy or rough, it helps to very gently exfoliate as you're buffing away the balm.

I'm really impressed with how well this product works to remove makeup, thanks to the inclusion of castor and jojoba oils. It's even gentle enough for removing eye makeup with absolutely no irritation for my sensitive eyes. My skin is always left well moisturised and softened (from the sweet almond, apricot kernel and shea butter) and the balm also has a soothing, brightening and purifying effect from the subtly scented blend of chamomile, lemon, cypress and eucalyptus essential oils.

I've been using this almost daily for 2 months and I have just under half the bottle left. The bottle contains 100ml of product and costs £21.50, so although it's initially priced as a more luxury cleansing balm, the cost does even out over the time it lasts. The ingredients are also of a very high quality, with 98% being organic! You can check out Angela Langford's full product range at angelalangford.com.

Have you tried any Angela Langford products before?

  1. Love the look of this balm. I think I would prefer a 50ml tube through as I'd be concerned that I wouldn't use 100ml before its use by date. x

    1. Ooh good idea, I think it would be great to have a smaller sized option! The use by on mine is October I think so at least I know I will definitely be using it up before then :) x

  4. Very interesting packaging for a balm cleanser! I don't really get on with jojoba though, so this is not for me xx

    1. Ah that's a shame you don't get on with jojoba. I much prefer balms in a tube, so much easier than scooping out of a jar :) x

  5. Not tried anything from this range before but I could totally be sold on this cleanser, I love the idea of a tube for packaging too, so much less mess than the types that come in tubs!

  6. I've tried various cleansers but never a cleansing balm before! This one sounds lovely. The price put me off though but if it lasts then that's pretty good!

  7. I had a sample of this balm a few months ago from Angela and it was gorgeous. Definitely one to buy when my current glut of cleansers runs out. I'm currently using the A Little Lift serum and Repair & Renew facial oil both of which are brilliant.

  8. I've never used a cleansing balm but I really want to try one out. I should have asked someone to get me one for my birthday and save myself some money! Haha.
