Suti Cleanse Balm, My First Ever Cleansing Balm!

SutiJar

We all want a healthy-looking skin. Who doesn’t? We seek for the right beauty or skincare products whenever we get the chance. However, once we’re out there, we just don’t know which one to pick. There’s jus too many of them! From foam, soap, powder, gel, to oil cleansers, they all promise one thing — cleansed, clear, and supple skin. But do they actually deliver?

When it comes to some things, I only ever get too excited when A) there’s a massive sale on and items are going down from £5 under! or<B) I just managed to come across a huge discount online or I can get some cash back after my shopping and C) when I find a product that really, really works for me! A product that I’m more than willing to invest in even if it’s a little bit over my preferred quota!

And that’s the type of product we’re going to talk about in this post. Suti Cleanse Balm.

Suti, part of my well-loved brands/products, is a unique British skincare brand that carries a range of luxurious organic products with beautifully blended high quality ingredients, that will nourish, energise and cocoon your skin from harmful irritants.

PACKAGING/WHAT’S INCLUDED


• Suti Cleanse Balm 50ml : £26.00 • Muslin cloth • spatula (stick?) •

It comes in this simple, yet wonderfully designed packaging, along with a handy muslin cloth. An unbleached organic 100% muslin cloth — made in the UK — and has been certified by the Soil Association. But is it worth the price? Keep reading, you’ll soon find out. 😉

And of course, Suzannah & Tina are fully aware that us girlies hate to ‘dip’ our  fingers in the jar! Hence, they’ve got us covered with this teeny weeny spatula, or stick (?) Well, it’s better than nothing.

The unscrew lid is not as fiddly as I thought and it compliments very well with Suti’s logo or design with that metallic-type finish. Something you can be proud of displaying in the bathroom!

QUANTITY & QUALITY

This cleansing balm is something you will start to look forward to, day and night, when you go through your beauty regime.

A wonderful treat to a tired skin that needs uplifting after a long, stressful day. The beautifully formulated ingredients and citrus-y aroma will greet you, enough to wake your senses up, while at the same time drawing out impurities, to give you a clear and refreshed looking skin. Sounds wonderful?

And a little goes a long way with this 50 ml jar!

CLOSER LOOK…

The grainy particles are the unrefined Shea Butter — that melts when in contact with your skin — used as part of the ingredients that helps to intensively nourish your skin.

SWATCHES

My skin type is Combination/Oily with greasy T-zone at times, dry patches and dark spots from previous breakouts. And this has certainly improved my skin appearance and rescue me from breaking out many times due to sleeping late.

Did my skin feel greasy after? Surprisingly, no! Just a fully revived and moisturized face that feels soft to touch.

And when my other half made a comment that my skin definitely looks better, I knew I was doing something right!

[box type=”info” align=”aligncenter” ]Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Seed Butter, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil*, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil*, Cera Alba (Unrefined Beeswax)*, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil*, Limonene**, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract*, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil*, Citrus Reticula (Mandarin) Oil*, Tocopherol, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil*, Pelargonium X Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil*, Linalool**, Geraniol**, Citronellol**[/box]

* Certified Organic    ** Naturally occurring in essential oils

“Blended Apricot Kernel, Sunflower and Shea Butter to intensively nourish, protect and help slough dead skin cells; Avocado to soothe, nourish and revitalise skin, Olive Oil to help soothe and calm inflammation and Calendula to help heal and tighten up the pores, Cleanse Facial Cleanser will leave the skin tingling and refreshed, purified and pampered.”

Why would you love Suti Cleanse Balm even more?

Because now you can skip an extra step from your routine! And who doesn’t want a straightforward skincare routine??

For a busy Mom and make up minimalist like myself, I want something straightforward, but effective. So having a product that would take off  our my make up as well as cleanse and moisturize* our skin, is something worth our precious time, don’t you think?

Let’s put this balm to a test to see if it deserves our standing ovation as a 3 in 1 product, shall we?

What’s used:

• Victoria Secret’s Foundation in Light (my foundation before I discovered BB cream) • Rosee Waterproof Mascara • CoverGirl Liquid Eyeliner • Etude House Eyebrow Pencil •

I let all these cosmetics settled in my skin before applying the balm cleanser, to test whether it’s enough to take it off, or not.

And the result?

TA-DA!

Although the first frame does not look quite promising, with the help of this wet (hand hot water) muslin cloth (of which by the way now needs washing), one or two swipes and the make up all came off, like magic!

In my opinion, Suti Cleanse Balm is worth every penny!

How do you feel about Suti’s Cleanse Balm? Would you like to try this product? Share your ‘Holy Grail’ product/s.

A big Thank You to Tina at Suti for kindly giving me the opportunity to share this product to everyone here.

*As a moisturizer, in my opinion, it would work for those with Combination to Normal to Dry skin. Although for Very Dry or Trouble skin, you might another product to keep your skin fully hydrated.

    Thanks for the detailed post D, I remember you told me about the product but it’s great to see that it works so well. I love that it kills two birds with 1 stone – removes makes and cleanses at the same time 🙂

      I was definitely skeptical at first when I came across this product, since there’s a lot of these luxurious products out there with a hefty price tag, but more or less, you’re paying for the name only. So this was definitely a sweet surprise when my skin reacted very well.

      P.S. (Sent your samples ;-))

        I’ve shown my partner and she thinks it looks great to, so at least we will both benefit from it! So technically it would only be £13 since its shared…. 😉 I was surprised when I found out they were a UK company, I’ve never heard of them! We’ve decided we’d like to try it, so as soon as we have some money we’re getting some 🙂 Your blog keeps making me want to spend money! :p
        Oooh yay I can’t wait until they arrive!! Thank you!! x

          Ohh, I’m glad you both like this product. It’s definitely worth a try! If for any reason you might want to try the samples firsts (even try all Suti’s samples,) here’s the link that you can buy samples from £1.50! http://www.naturisimo.com/products_samples.cfm?type=Samples%20cleansers&nme=Suti&samples=1#

          To get the samples, you need to buy a full price item (cheapest full price will do like a lip balm from £3.50 – I did this before and I think it was all worth it in the end knowing that the products really suits my skin. But it’s up to you both, just giving you an option, that I’ve chosen before. 😉

    Thank you for such a detailed post. This has helped me so much. I have been thinking of getting the Suti cleanser or not, but judging from your review, you have had such a nice experience from it.

    I have used balm/butter cleanser in the past such as coconut oil alone and I really enjoy it. I like the process of watching it melt and really clean my make up, it’s astonishing how such a natural product can do that! (and yet consumers still buy non-natural ones that are really expensive).

    Thanks!

      Hello! Thanks for dropping by and leaving such a wonderful comment! Suti is definitely a brand not to miss. I’m running out of my cleanser and due to buy another jar :). It’s so perfect for sensitive skin as well. I’ve been meaning to try more balm cleanser but just never saw ones that caught my attention. 🙂

      I know what you mean, others still go for very expensive ones even though they’re all packed with nasty chemicals. I’m so glad that there’s now a wide variety of natural products out there though. Do let me know how you get on with Suti 🙂 xx D
