Collapsible content


A cleansing balm is a whole new way to approach face care. A natural multi functional cleanser and make up remover.

Made with a blend of oils, waxes and essential oils, this Lemon & Bergamot Cleansing Balm offers a gentle and unique means of facial cleansing.

Using an oil to cleanse may sound different and even quite scary especially to those with oily skin, but oil in fact, dissolves oil. Water is not able to break down oil and some water based cleansers can be less effective on oily skin.

This cleansing balm has been created with a soy wax keeping it soft and easy to apply, a moisturising but light shea butter and Castor oil. Castor is a favourite oil for cleansing since it has a low comedogenic rating (meaning it does not clog pores) and its ability to draw out dirt.

Essential Oils of Lemon, Bergamot and Tea Tree have been blended in too. Not only do they give the balm a refreshing and uplifting scent but they are essential oils that have anti-bacterial properties helping fight the causes our spots and blemishes.

After cleansing, you can also moisturise using The Ilex Wood Rose and Frankincense Face Cream.

Great for...

  • Best for normal to oily skin types
  • An everyday cleanser
  • Reducing spots and blemishes
  • Acne
  • Gentle make-up remover


Citrus, fresh, invigorating

How to use

A cleansing balm is a simple and easy to use item.

Simply apply a small pea sized amount to dry skin and massage in.

For the next step, use a hot, damp flannel to gently remove the balm from the skin.

Rinse you face and voila - you are cleansed!

    "I've been buying prussic from Ilex Wood for a few years now and won't use anything else for my skincare. The lemon and bergamot cleansing balm is so effective without being drying. Great small business, excellent products and customer service. Well worth the buy!"

    "The lemon balm and peppermint lip balm has become a firm favourite. It keeps my lips in great condition and keeps cold sores at bay. It's exactly the right consistency, and lasts both on my lips and in the tin for ages"

    "The products are amazing, both my son and myself have sensitive skin and the calendula balm is magic when suffering a skin flare up. The packaging is sustainable and Holly keeps in touch with her customers on a personal level which is so refreshing."
