One thing I learn in life is to never say never. I wasn't a big fan of cleansing balm, especially after my friend pass me this super hit cleansing balm from Korea that she claims "everyone is using it in Korea and I love it myself too." Hence I tried it and nope, didn't like it. To be honest, I hate it.

And so I thought all cleansing balm are ought to be like that, feels like a greasy film covering each and every of my pores and clogging them with the balm. And that point, I told myself I'm never gonna use any cleansing balm in my life, until I met DUO from Japan, then I had to eat my own words because I'm loving it.

Combining nature, science and beauty, DUO has been awarded with Monde Selection Gold & Silver Awards in these years ( Monde Selection certifies the quality of consumer products with its unique quality awards. Each product is evaluated individually by a Jury of experts ) and also awarded 1st prize in @Cosme website, although not many of us in Malaysia heard of DUO, but it has an astounding sales result which sold more than 10 millions jars since year 2010.

10 freaking million jars! You know those best selling clothes or shoes in Japan are often sold around 2000 - 3000 pieces, hence 10 million jars of these sold really certifies its quality as well as credibility among Japanese users. I am a true believer of math especially when it comes to cosmetics and beauty products, and users rating speaks louder than words hence I'm gonna try DUO The Cleansing Balm in clear and share with you my review. 

I brought this jar of cleansing balm along with me to a short trip recently and I was amazed by it! Because of its 5-in-1 cleansing power, I managed to pack lightly for that trip because I don't need to bring another cleanser for double cleansing anymore. DUO Cleansing Balm suits everyone especially those who has a hectic schedule and needs more time to rest. Its cleansing power combines both makeup removing and cleansing in one. 

How exactly? With its smaller-than-pores nano matrix structure technology, DUO Cleansing Balm "melts" away makeups, dirts and sebum that clogged pores as well as cleanse whatever residue that's left on the skin, leaving skin clean, smooth and moisturised. 

  • KERATIN-CARE (dead skin cells removal) 

Aside from these 5-in-1 functions, DUO Cleansing Balm contains also 31 types of serum ingredients for ageing care as well, which formed the "Treatment" function. Contains 24 kinds of plant extracts, vitamin C, nano collagen, nano hyaluronic acid, nano ceramide etc, these serum ingredients penetrates into skin while cleansing and massaging, giving skin nutrients and moisture.

Simple design on the jar, sturdy and easy to carry around, bringing this jar of cleansing balm while I travel will be mess free guarantee because I don't have to worry it will spilled over inside my bag or luggage. With a small spatula clicked on the lid, scooping out DUO's cleansing balm is easy and hygienic. 

Just one spoon of DUO Cleansing Balm to melt away all my skin problems

And everybody knows the foundation of beauty and skincare is to do proper cleansing each and everyday. Regardless with or without makeup, our skin deserves a proper cleansing every night due to the dead skin cells and environment pollutants that clogged our pores.

As you can see, the microparticles start to dissolve when in contact with skin and melts into watery oil form

After this, just rinse with water thoroughly and pat dry! And one thing that amazes me when I was massaging and rinsing off is DUO's cleansing balm doesn't sting my eyes at all! I can easily remove all my waterproof eyeliners and mascaras without the fear of it stinging my eyes. It's also a gentle product for eyelash extensions users.
