My Rose Cleansing Balm has been one of my top products to reformulate for a while, because I wanted it to be as indulgent as all my other Sabbatical Beauty products. So in this Spring 2021 iteration, I’ve switched out the main oils in this balm to be more skin loving, so that you enjoy a luxurious experience while cleansing - with oils that are so good for you, that you can also use them as a mask!

Our 3 key oils in Rose Cleansing Balm:

🌹 Hazelnut Oil - this is one of my favorite oils, because of its high concentrations of tannins and catechins, which both make it feel dry to the skin and not greasy. It is also filled with many polyphenols and has one of the highest flavonoid concentrations of a carrier oil, meaning it is antioxidant rich and helps to reduce inflammation and make your skin glow.

🌹 Shea Butter - Shea butter contains a high concentration of Vitamin E in the form of tocopherol and tocotrienols, so it acts as a natural antioxidant to help reduce irritation, redness and prevent premature aging. It also naturally contains allantoin, which is approved by the FDA as a cosmetic ingredient to protect your skin’s moisture barrier, thereby protecting chafed, cracked or windburned skin and reviving damaged skin. Allantoin also helps with wound healing and cell regeneration, making your skin more flexible and glowing.

🌹 Castor Oil - Castor oil is an excellent oil to treat acne & inflammation as it feels dry on the skin, but still softens skin, and is very low on the comedogencity scale. I’ve used a washable castor oil in this iteration so that it comes off super cleanly.

  • Oil cleansing is essential to removing clogged sebum which can sometimes develop into acne - this balm helps you to get them out gently without any harsh extractions
  • Skin-loving oils means you can also use this as a hydrating mask
  • Helps prevent transepidermal water loss, meaning you have more hydrated, bouncier and younger looking skin
  • Washes off cleanly
  • Follow with a low pH foaming cleanser for best results

Application Tips:

Apply to a dry face. Massage well, then rinse off with warm water or towel off.

Great for makeup removal

Vacuum cleansing oil is my go to, but I find it isn't as effective at removing makeup, especially eye makeup, as I'd like. The original rose cleansing balm had mineral oil that irritated my skin and a stronger scent which I found to be a bit too much for me. This new formulation is amazing! It doesn't irritate my skin, it is a bit less fragrant (but still has a rose scent) and is wonderful for removing makeup.

My favorite balm

I've loved this cleansing balm, and I was so stoked for this reformulation. It's so velvety and soothing. I love using it before my foaming cleanser. It gets all of my eye makeup off and preps my skin for everything else. It washes off well. My favorite is to use a hot washcloth to wipe it off. I also love using this as a oil mask or to guasha with. Perfect reformulation.

This Balm is da bomb!!!

I am a loyal double cleanser and though I prefer the VCO to clean my face but I have always enjoyed using the OG Rose Cleansing Balm with my Got Grits set and was pleased with the results.
As a tester, I received this formulation and was blown away by the richer fragrance, the slip of the balm, the ease of removal and the lasting hydration and softness. Order this, your skin will thank you!

Love love love!

Really love this new formulation! It feels so soft going on and cleans off really well! Sometimes with balms, there’s an oily residue but this one cleans off so nicely! Would definitely recommend as your first step followed by a cleanser.
