    Australian Davidson Plum 

    Native to the hinterland of northern New South Wales, Davidson Plum is rich in antioxidants which help protect the skin from free radical damage. Naturally occurring polysaccharides help to reduce transepidermal water loss and protect the skin's barrier function.

    Grapeseed Oil 

    This Vitamin E rich oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties which help to calm the skin. Grapeseed Oil is also rich in antioxidants which assist in protecting the skin from free radical damage caused by environmental stress.

    Australian Sandalwood Seed Oil 

    Rich in Ximenynic Acid, one of the rarest fatty acids in the plant world, this luxe natural oil is anti-inflammatory, increases micro-circulation and reduces excess sebum. 


    Extracted from Chamomile, Bisabolol is rich in Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) and works to deeply hydrate the skin, reduce moisture loss and assist with reducing redness and irritation.

    Formulated without these ingredients and more 

    Parabens, Sulphates SLS and SLES, Phthalates, Mineral Oils, Formaldehydes, Formaldehyde-releasing agents, Coal Tar, Hydroquinone, Triclosan, and Triclocarban.

    One Balm, Four Ways

    As your daily first cleanse: Melt away the day's makeup, SPF, pollution - and problems - then follow with your second cleanser.

    As your makeup remover: Break down even the most stubborn long-wearing makeup, without irritation.

    As a nourishing mask: Leave a lush layer on clean skin for up to 10 minutes as a deeply hydrating mask.

    In an at-home facial: Take a minute to gently massage Melting Moment over the face, neck and décolletage in upward circular movements.

    Pro tip: Always apply your balm to dry skin, and add warm water to emulsify before rinsing or gently wiping off with a damp face cloth.

    Delicious Melting Moment

    Yes delicious, beautiful product..

    Step 1 use the melting moment cleansing balm to clean my makeup off..

    step 2 use the balancing cleanser to give my face & pores a second clean…

    The Melting moment cleanser is so easy to use, just a small scoop on my finger rub over my face & wipe off with a warm wet cloth, makes my skin feel clean & refreshed..

    beautifully packaged. Definitely recommend using this product. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Love this gorgeous product

    It literally does what it says it will, melts my makeup and suncream off better than any other makeup remover product I’ve used previously. Smells lovely and leaves my face clean and fresh.

    The perfect cleanser

    This product is absolute perfection. A luxurious balm that quite literally melts into your skin, removing makeup and general grime from the day. Unlike other cleansers that can make your skin feel striped OR others that make it feel oily, this cleanser leaves your skin feeling nourished and pure. The gentle sweet smell of plum is subtle and elegant. I cannot rave about this product enough, it is perfection in a tub.

    Nourishing. Moisturises, but you do need to double cleanse.
