Are you looking for a cleansing balm recipe? In this post I will teach you how to make your own chocolate vanilla cleansing balm that will remove your makeup without drying your skin.

Benefits of Using Homemade Cleansing Balms

The oil in this balm will dissolve your make up and remove dirt without drying your skin. It is a much gentler way of removing excess oil from the skin than soaps. It also helps to maintain the skin’s pH level and contains naturally antibacterial ingredients. After you have massaged this balm into your skin and wiped away your makeup, your skin will be left clean and hydrated. It will not strip your skin’s protective barrier and your skin will not produce excess oil which is often caused by over-cleansing.

Unlike many store bought cleansers, this homemade cleansing balm contains no irritating fragrances or preservatives and does not contain ingredients such as mineral oil which is known to clog pores.

Ingredients of Homemade Chocolate Vanilla Cleansing Balm

Raw Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is good for the skin as it is antibacterial and can help treat acne and protect the skin from any harmful bacteria. It also keeps the skin moisturised and reduces inflammation.

Vanilla is rich in antioxidants and has anti-ageing properties. It prevents skin damage caused by free radicals and helps to reduce fine lines. I use therapeutic grade vanilla essential oil which gives you deeply cleansed healthy skin. Your skin will be clearer and have a beautiful glow.

Emulsifier

I use emulsifying wax beads as it holds the balm together when it sets in the fridge. This wax gives the balm a thicker more luxurious texture and makes it easier to apply to the skin. This preservative will also prevent the balm from developing bacteria, yeast or fungus.

Emulsifying wax beads are currently available on Amazon


Ingredients

How to Make Homemade Chocolate Vanilla Cleansing Balm

Melt the unrefined cocoa butter, raw virgin coconut oil and shea butter in a pan on medium heat. Once all three oils have melted stir them together and add the emulsifying wax beads. It may take time for the beads to fully melt down for you to be able to stir them into the mixture.

Once you have fully combined all of the oils with the emulsifying beads take the mixture off the heat and add the drops of vanilla essential oil. Stir the mixture until the vanilla essential oil is fully mixed in.

Pour the chocolate vanilla cleansing balm into a glass jar and put it into the refrigerator to set. Once the balm has set you can keep it at room temperature.

The mixture of unrefined cocoa butter and vanilla essential oil give the balm a beautiful chocolate vanilla scent.

Chocolate Cleansing Balm

How to Use Homemade Chocolate Vanilla Cleansing Balm

Massage a generous amount into your skin. The balm will emulsify with the heat of your skin and start to dissolve your makeup.

Soak a muslin cloth in warm water and then remove the balm from your skin. You will see your makeup come off with the balm. You can repeat the process a second time until your skin feels completely clean of makeup.
