Those of you who know me may know that I utterly adore the Eve Lom cleansing balm. It's a potent, beautifully scented and - most importantly - effective cleanser for the skin.
So, when I heard that this White Rabbit Comfort Cleansing Balm was a contender as a dupe for Eve, I wanted in on the action!
First things first, Eve will set you back around £60-£80. Not quite your budget choice - I understand! This little tub cost just £14.40 per 100ml - DELIVERED! It also came with a cleansing cloth (microfiber *yeesh*) and a little tester pot of coconut and rose cream.
On opening the tub to test the texture of the balm, I was surprised to find that it was almost spongy! This totally differs from Eve Lom, which is definitely a balm and a bit more astringent. It was quite pleasant once I'd gotten used to it though.
To use, I scooped out a little of the balm and rubbed gently between my fingertips, then rubbed onto a dry face. With cleansing balms, I like to do a bit of facial massage to really work the product in and help dislodge makeup and any dirt which may have accumulated on the skin. Once thoroughly rubbed in, I left it for a minute or two to let the product work its magic. On removal, I did find that my skin felt ever-so-slightly oily. However, it didn't strip my skin like some cleansers can - which would be excellent for those with slightly dryer skins.
This balm does contain some essential oils which, though fine for my skin, may be an irritant to others. The oils are eucalyptus, rosemary and lavender. I'm not a huge fan of lavender scented products, but this definitely isn't over the top.
Verdict? Whilst I don't think it is *just* as good as my beloved Eve Lom, for £14.40 delivered you cannot go wrong and I would repurchase.
