Say hello to Full Moon Cleansing Balm 🌕

I'm insanely proud of how this delightful cleanser turned out.

When I first created my skincare line in 2016, I wanted to offer a cleanser. But to be honest, I was intimidated. Not only are traditional cleansers more complex than some of my other products, but I didn't like the cleansers on the market: they dried out my skin, leaving it itchy, too-squeaky-clean, and generally left me feeling dissatisfied. 

Over the last few years, I've meditated and explored what kind of cleanser I'd want to create and bring to the line. I experimented with who knows how many formulations that left me scratching my head.

I decided to follow my heart and create something that I believe to be a superior option to the foaming + soapy cleansers that fill the skincare world. 

Instead of stripping your skin's beautiful and natural oils that keep it protected from the elements, Full Moon Cleansing Balm supports, nourishes, and nurtures your skin's barrier. It soothes, hydrates, and deeply protects. 

Without a healthy functioning skin barrier, you might experience dryness, acne + breakouts, acute tingling and/or pain,  and inflammatory and uncomfortable skin concerns. 

This is my answer to that because I believe that skincare should not only be supportive of your skin's natural way of being but it should be gentle... 

Trying a cleansing balm might seem out of this world to you. You may have used the same kind of foaming cleanser for years but I promise this is an amazing and effective alternative to truly caring for and cleansing your skin on the daily. 

For longtime customers of Lagom Body Co., I know you've been waiting for a cleanser to add to your ritual... and I'm so grateful for your patience. This is a big thing for the Lagom Body Co. line and for myself as an ever-evolving herbalist and boutique + natural skincare formulator.

To celebrate, I'm offering special pricing on Full Moon. Tthe full-size Full Moon Cleansing Balm (60ml) is $32 (normally $40) now until 5/12/19 or until this first batch runs out. If you're feeling unsure but you want to give it a try, I'm offering a small number of samples right now for $7 as well.

Our first cleanser of the Lagom Body Co. skincare collection is different than your average cleanser: instead of foaming and bubbling, Full Moon applies to and nourishes the skin just like your favorite facial balm. But, once water is added, it turns into a lovely milk that doesn't strip away your skin's precious oils.


With all my love,

This cleansing balm is an ode to the full moon: full of ripe potential for healing, intention making, and inner fulfillment + nourishing self-awareness. 

Our first cleanser of the Lagom Body Co. skincare collection is different than your average cleanser: instead of foaming and bubbling, Full Moon applies to and nourishes the skin just like your favorite facial balm. But, once water is added, it turns into a lovely milk that doesn't strip away your skin's precious oils.

Over time, Full Moon deeply nourishes, protects, calms, and soothes normal, dry, irritated, sun damaged, sensitive, and combo skin. Shea butter repairs an impaired lipid barrier function, common for most people with dry, dehydrated, and damaged skin. A synergistic blend of palmarosa, lemongrass, and grapefruit oils clear the skin, destagnate the lymph, and uplift your mood. 

THE RITUAL

Gently massage a pea size of the cleansing balm into dry skin. Wet your hands to transform the balm into a milky liquid and continue to work it in. Rinse with warm water and follow with your favorite tonic and oil serum if desired. As with all Lagom Body Co. skincare products, store in a cool + dry place.
