Kissimmee Vitamin F Cleansing Balm
Does the hard work with a soft touch.
For: Dry skin, or use as step one in a double cleanse.
When your skin is chronically dry, or just dry right now, you need a wash that won’t suck the life out of your already-parched face. If you want bouncy, glowing skin that lasts, it all starts with your wash (the wrong one can leave you looking and feeling like dried-out paper). We blended together the best moisture-preserving ingredients we could find and kept away from anything that could potentially disrupt the skin barrier and spur on more dryness, including essential oils and sulfates.

How to use
Massage on dry skin in slow circular motions. Take your time, it’s sinking in. Add a splash of water to emulsify the balm into a milk. Rinse and pat dry. Use whenever skin feels parched, or if you’d like a fresh start.
Warning: External use only. Avoid contact with eyes.
Pore Confession: Most indulgences aren’t necessarily water-soluble. But this one is.
Rethinking Skincare As Skin Situations
Skin types describe a baseline of skin’s behavior. But sometimes skin decides to misbehave, and that’s when we have a situation. Situational Skincare is taking a solution-oriented approach to skincare based on what it needs day-to-day.
