When creating this product, I imagined you, like me, walking up the stairs aroung midnight, absolutely pooped and thinking 'I wish I had taken my make up off at 9pm when I came up for a wee. All I want to do now is fall into bed'

What could I do to make your cleanse more pleasurable and more practical/time saving, without sacrificing effectiveness and efficientcy?

Cleansing balm that squeezes out of a tube so, easy and portable. One that does not need warming in the fingers, takes a lot to spread over the face and to remove all residue. That saved 45 precious seconds on a cleans and in a year that adds up to over half a day of sleep time or if you wear face make up, allows you to do a double cleanse in the same time as current.

So, it had to come out of the tube and easilsy massage into the skin - that is where the 'Melting' bit came in.  It had to be super effective and hydrating which is where the Sweet Almond Oil, Echium Oil, Mangosteen came in. It had to be easy to remove and not leave a dry or waxy or oily residue but had to feel soft and velvety. That's where the addition of water to turn into a milk came in.

It is designed to be used with Daily Cleansing Cloths but if you are in a hurry, a bit worse for wear, do not have a clean cloth to hand or feeling a bit lazy, you can rinse it off and your skin will feel great.

Next for pleasure. I wanted you to come out of the bathroom with an...'aah! that was not so bad' So I added my signature essence blend to further engage your senses and it has ingredients that are said to uplift confidence too.

Finally price, I had to be able to do it and ensure that mine not only compared favourably on performance, but that it would be at least half the price of leading cleansing balms on the market and it is about 40% of the cost of some popular ones.

I hope you love it. 



I'm 52 years old so I've used lots of cleansers in my time ! This is my favourite! It's lovely to use, I've got dry skin, my skin feels lovely after using!
A pleasure to use, I've mature combination skin, Oilier in summer, so am using this and the luxury face wash. Please introduce larger tubes! I've always shied away from anything perfumed as my skin is also sensitive ,but love this it's more an essential oil sort of smell, fresh and clean.

Have just bought this from John Lewis on-line. I had done some research on line which the best cleansing balms were, and I kept seeing this one. So I bought it, and starting using it yesterday, I also got the flannels which are also great. The smell is divine, and the texture of the balm is just amazing, my skin feels just fab. I will be using this from now on. I'm now going to get a few more things in the range.
Love this cleanser. Feels really nice, smells lovely and is affordable. Really works on my combination/prone to occasional break outs skin. However, it's a shame the price has already increased from £14.50 to £15.50 already for 100ml. Really hope it doesn't keep increasing.

Love this, on my second tube!
Amazing cleanser that I have been using for a while now with great results. The only suggestion I would now have is to introduce larger size so that I do not have to buy it so often... for the big fans like me that would be a great plus!
D Nelson
Just cleansed with the luscious melting cleansing balm, that scent always puts me in such a good mood!

This and Luxury Facial Wash saved my life! I have an acne-prone, sensitive, combination skin. Tried so many products and they were either too harsh for my skin or not effective against acne! Double-cleanse with these two products (I also use Manual Cleansing Brush with the Facial Wash) and I have an amazing skin now! I never write reviews but thought these products helped me so hopefully will help someone else too!

Recently sampled the Melting Cleansing Conditioner and Iconic Youth Serum, both of which I love and picked up from John Lewis whilst on my travels in Glasgow yesterday - couldn't wait a day without them - sink straight into my skin, which I can feel working overnight and wake up to ''see-through" flawless skin!
Absolutely love this cleansing balm! The scent, the texture, the softness of my skin after use are all reasons to continue using this product. Im hooked!
Juliet Johnston
Fantastic product I don't want to prince it off feels so lovely on my skin leaves it feeling so special never had this good feeling on my skin before
Nicola Aldred
I have tried many cleansers in the past,but none as good as this.It removes makeup beautifully and your skin feels very soft and comfortable after use,not at all drying.
Kirsty Chard
I was given this by a friend, I immediately LOVED this product. Wonderful velvety texture and very effective, it does feel like it's gently melting your make up off. I've tried lots of high end cleansers that are considerably pricier than this one but this is the best I've tried by miles. Both my teenage daughters have started using it and I've even started buying it for friends - the serum is great too by the way . Highly recommended !
Carly Gilbert
Really lovely cleanser that literally melts on your skin & removes make up gently...must get the cleansing cloths to try! Loving this new product range
Kelly Aylward
Skin felt silky smooth with no drying at all, great feeling afterwards
Jessica Anderson
A little goes a very long way, immediate sensation is the beautiful smell which creates essence of a beauty parlour in your own bathroom! Skin felt cleansed and still subtle without that squeaky clean feel factor which is only a sign the skins oils have been stripped back too far? Your cleanser on the other hand smells invigorating, minimal effort yet a brighter cleansed skin with immediate appearance of better skin tone and texture.
Donna Houghton
Feel of skin after was great – soft, smooth, not tight

I purchased the trial pack and was amazed at the difference in just a few uses. Visibly softer, fresh skin with a beautiful glow often not achieved from high end cleansers.
