From micellar waters and wipes to creams, gels and face washes for acne, the cleansing world can be a minefield. But what if we told you there was just one cleanser that did the job of all? A formula that revives in the morning, banishes sweat post-workout and takes off makeup and pollution at night – all without stripping the skin or leaving a greasy residue?
Meet: the Balancer Oil-to-milk Cleanser. Formerly known as By Sarah London Raspberry Seed Cleansing Oil, there's a reason this blend has scooped multiple awards and garners countless glowing reviews from customers.
Powered by carefully-curated plant oils that nourish, smooth and soothe, our best-selling cleanser forms the cornerstone of healthy glowing skin.
Here's your ultimate guide to our much-loved cleanser...
Why did we name it the 'Balancer?'
Has your skin ever felt tight or squeaky after cleansing? Alpha hydroxy acids, abrasive particles and SLS or sodium lauryl sulphate (the ingredient that makes products foam up) are often the culprits. These can disrupt our important barrier function and microbiome, leaving skin dehydrated, fragile and sensitive.
And while removing grime, sweat and makeup are all important, what our cleanser puts back is just as vital.
Instead of depleting skin, our Oil-to-milk cleanser nourishes it with plant-based goodies that strengthen and protect. The result? True skin harmony with a complexion that's clean, comfortable and calm. All hail... the Balancer!
What are the ingredients in By Sarah London Balancer Oil-to-milk Cleanser?
Instead of aggressive soaps and foaming agents, the Balancer Oil-to-milk Cleanser uses plant-powered oils to melt away dirt, pollution and makeup. Our innovative upcycled Raspberry Seed Oil – made using surplus from the food and juicing industry – is the star of the show, boasting 20 per cent more Vitamin E than standard raspberry seed oil.
This is blended alongside Grape Seed Oil (rich in linoleic acid and antioxidants), Olive Squalane (to boost cell regeneration), Marula Seed Oil (for additional moisturisation) and Vitamin E (that neutralises the effect of free radicals). Together, they whisk away impurities – including waterproof makeup and SPF – while cosseting even the most sensitive complexions.
How do I use By Sarah London Balancer Oil-to-milk Cleanser?
While cleansing can be a beautifully pampering experience, we want it to be as simple and faff-free as possible, too – so you can get the job done whether you're in the gym, rushing to get ready before work or desperate to jump into bed in the evening.
Simply pour a small amount of the Balancer into the palm of your hand (you can also add our Re-useable Pump to the bottle). Then bring your hands together and massage it into your face and neck using small upward circular motions.
Splash your face with lukewarm water and you'll notice the oil transform into a light cleansing milk then rinse and rinse away.
No wasteful wipes or cotton pads required! We often combine ours with some facial massage to help plump and firm the skin while quieting a busy mind.
