Alpha-H Melting Moment Cleansing Balm with Wild Orange Leaf Extract
Packed with antioxidant-rich and active ingredients, this multitasking cleansing balm deeply cleanses and nourishes your skin. Australian wild orange extract in the formula is rich in phyto-compounds like amino acids, which help to maintain your skin’s hydration.
The waterless cleansing balm is made up entirely of oils and various emollients to melt away makeup, SPF, and impurities effortlessly without disrupting your skin’s natural pH balance. It also supports your skin’s barrier function to hydrate dry skin, while it regulates sebum production in oilier skin types.
You can use it as your standalone cleanser, as the first step of your double-cleanse, or as a moisturising leave-on mask for clean, nourished, glowing skin.
