de Mamiel Botaniques Restorative Cleansing Balm

Annee de Mamiel (as we have often noted in the past) is one of the most extraordinary therapists we’ve ever had the pleasure of being treated by. Her more-than-facials incorporate acupuncture, facial massage and harness healing powers which might well have seen her burned at the stake a few hundred years ago. (With our belief in the power of botanicals, we’d probably have been roasted right alongside her, mind.) For those who love an all-natural cleansing balm, this is a beautiful option: silky and seriously make-up-melting, and powered by all sorts of plants and oils – moringa, kukui nut butters, together with prebiotics and essential oils of Cape chamomile, rose geranium, fragonia and honey myrtle.

Naturally (in every way) you massage it into skin and sweep away with a hot washcloth or muslin cloth, to leave skin beautifully clean and wonderfully soft. The whole skincare line is well worth exploring, but this is balm for the skin, the senses – and the soul.
