Pure Native Cleansing Balm is a soft balm texture - there is no beeswax in the formulation so it's never absolutely solid, even at cooler textures. This is not an emulsifying formulation so you apply to a dry face, massage to lift dirt and makeup then remove with a damp muslin, and even after removing it does leave a very thin trace of the nourishing oils in the formulation on the face. It smells lightly of orange.
I use this as my evening cleanser, and the Essential Earth Exfoliating Cleanser in the morning. I don't need to use a moisturiser after using the Cleansing Balm in the evening; I just use the Essential Mist MSM Toner and then a couple of drops of the Essential Beauty Serum.
I had a small sample pot of this in my first Live Native order, and liked it so much I emailed to plead to buy my full size (30ml) pot ahead of its general release. It's £24 for 30ml.
Texture of Cleansing Balm:
The gold flakes melt into the skin when you apply the balm - you don't end up with gold shimmer around the eyes. £45 for 15ml, this is priced quite reasonably for a product with gold in it (the rest of the ingredients aren't shabby either.)
You only need small amount; a dab the size of a grain of cooked rice is enough for both eyes. It's very hydrating and plumps up fine lines.
Rejuvenating Eye Balm texture:
If you buy a Cleansing Balm from Content, you receive a free Lip Balm with your order, until 30 June.
If you buy an Eye Balm from Content, you receive a free Lip Balm and a 2ml sample of the Beauty Serum, until 30 June.
The Essential collection (good for travel) comes with a free 15ml Cleansing Balm and a full size Lip Balm. (I don't think this last offer is time limited).
I've been using a Live Native routine for two months now, and my skin looks and feels healthy, nourished and balanced. I think this brand might actually have broken me as a beauty blogger because I'm quite reluctant to try other brands, and I intend to stick to raw skincare.
