How To Get The Most Out Of Oat Cleansing Balm
For anyone with sensitive skin, rejoice! Our award-winning Oat Cleansing Balm is a rich cleansing formula designed to melt away makeup and impurities without drying the skin. The key to making the most out of this product is knowing how to best apply it in your routine.
Below, we breakdown everything you need to know to maximize the results of this creamy cleanser.
WHEN SHOULD I USE OAT CLEANSING BALM?
This should sit as the first step in your routine, and if you’re double cleansing, use this first and follow with a gel-like cleanser like our Hyaluronic Acid Cleanser (for dry skin) or our Salicylic Acid Cleanser (for more oily/blemish-prone skin). Use it every morning and night—especially at night to remove makeup and SPF.
HOW DO I APPLY IT?
Take a small raspberry sized amount of Oat Cleansing Balm and gently massage onto dampened or dry skin—both the face and neck area. Then rinse thoroughly. Pro tip: use our INKEY Reusable Cotton Pads to gently remove the cleanser.
WHAT CAN I USE THIS WITH?
Any of our other INKEY skincare products! We recommend pairing this with the INKEY Reusable Cotton Pads for an extra gentle cleanse. For an extra kick of hydration, use our best selling Hyaluronic Acid Serum after cleansing.
ARE THERE OTHER WAYS TO USE THIS?
Yes, it’s actually a very versatile formula! For an extra nourishment boost, leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing off like a hydrating face mask. You can do this 1-2 times a week. In addition, it can be used as a shaving balm or a makeup remover.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THIS PRODUCT?
Our Oat Cleansing Balm is very susceptible to temperature changes due to the oil content in the formula; therefore, we see viscosity changes in various climates. In colder temps, the contents of the formula will harden making it a bit difficult to squeeze the product from the tube. So for colder climates, we suggest running it under a warm tap for 30-60 seconds to soften the contents. On the flip side, the opposite can happen if it’s too warm and the formula can get runny. If this is the case, shake well before use.
This cleanser is a must for dry, sensitive skin since it’s a rich, nourishing formula. Even better, it also comes in a 50ml version—perfect for traveling and on-the-go!
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
For the love of instant gratification, skin will feel instantly hydrated and cleansed after use. However, to see prolonged results, products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, but don't overdo it! More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.
