    • Why it's Cult

      If you've been dreaming of adding Then I Met You to your skin care rituals, chances are this is the formula that captured your attention. Earning glowing write-ups from the beauty buffs at AllureGlamour and Refinery29, not to mention copious awards - you're looking at Caroline Hirons' Choice for 2020 Product of the Year - the Living Cleansing Balm melts away sunscreen, make up and excess sebum to reveal a perfectly refreshed, calm complexion. The supremely sensorial formula has hints of rosemary, persimmon and grapefruit to delight your senses as vitamin E and plant oils feed your face with antioxidants and fatty acids and free it from impurities. It was all so dull, then we met the Living Cleansing Balm... 

    • Description

      A staple in the rituals - it transcends the passive act of routine - of beauty editors and skintellectuals alike, Then I Met You's Living Cleansing Balm effortlessly melts away make up, sunscreen and excess sebum while feeding your skin with antioxidants and fatty acids.

      The ultimate first cleanse, this sorbet-soft balm is designed to be massaged into skin - pause to appreciate the sensorial notes of rosemary, persimmon and grapefruit - to easily melt away oil-based impurities. It's crafted from a luxurious blend of lightweight plant oils including sea buckthorn oil (adored for its abundance of fatty acids such as stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, and omega 6); olive oil (a nourishing antioxidant that boasts anti-inflammatory properties and supports your skin barrier); finally, grapeseed oil (an antioxidant-rich emollient that nourishes as it gently lifts impurities - cue round of applause). It doesn't end with that holy trinity of oils though - it's also laced with persimmon extract to protect your skin from free radicals and promote a brighter tone, plus vitamin E to promote a healthy, youthful finish. We're so glad we met this formula...

    • How to use

      For the first step of your double cleanse, use the spatula to scoop a dime-sized amount onto dry skin and gently massage in circular motions. Add a splash of warm water to emulsify and remove oil-based impurities. Rinse thoroughly before moving to step two, a water-based cleanse with the Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel.

    • Full ingredients list

      Olea Europaea Fruit Oil (Olive), Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil (Grape), Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Peg-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Peg-8 Isostearate, Cera Microcristallina, Hippophae Rhamnoides Fruit Oil, Ceresin, Synthetic Wax, Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil, Diospyros Kaki Fruit Extract (Persimmon), Aniba Rosaeodora Wood Oil (Rosewood), Citrus Paradisi Peel Oil (Grapefruit), Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil (Rosemary), Tocopheryl Acetate, 1,2-hexanediol, Bis-diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Ethylene/Propylene Copolymer, BHT, Limonene

      As there are differences between US and European labelling requirements, you may notice a slight variation amongst ingredient listings on differing sites. Limonene, for example is a compound found in Grapefruit Oil, and the UK requests it to be listed out separately. Then I Met You can assure you that all products boast the same formulation, with the same sorbet soft texture that everyone loves!

    Then I Met You - Living Cleansing Balm

    Then I Met You Living Cleansing Balm Reviews

    Treat yourself
    I’m such a nervous, melancholic, up and down person. One thing I promised myself to do is to daily give myself a nice treatment before bedtime. This balm is so soothing and beautiful, I love it. Yes, it’s overpriced, but well okay, treat yourself.
    Absolutely love it!
    I've been using this balm for the past couple of weeks and I can honestly say that it's one of the best cleansers I've used (it rates as high as the Elemis balm to me). I have very sensitive cystic acne-prone skin, so I usually have to be really careful with what products I use. But this is gentle, it's great at removing make-up, and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth after use. My skin loves it (it hasn't made me break out once), and it smells amazing too. Definitely, an instant repurchase for me when I finally use up the pot I'm currently using, which will be a while as a little bit definitely goes a long way.
    Does it all!
    I buy a lot of cleansing balms and use them at night to clean away the SPF50 sunscreen I wear, I don’t wear makeup so can not say what it is like at getting makeup off. I have been using this balm every night for a couple of weeks and I can say that it does a good job of cleansing my face it has a lovely texture and smells nice too. It rinses away nicely without leaving a residue. I am not a person who repeatedly buys any cleanser simply because there are so many other nice ones out there to buy and try. This does the job it’s made for.
    Its ok
    It does what it’s supposed to: didn’t hate it. The problem with hype is clearly expectations are high.
    Clearly overhyped
    It smells citrusy, quite common. Nothing special. You can find other options way more affordable - the Heimish one for example.
    Love this product
    It lived up to the hype for me. Took every scrap of makeup off and left me with baby soft skin. Would definitely rebuy it!
    It's nice but
    It's a lovely cleanser, does the job, but I think it's not worth the hype. I feel like for that money and after all the reviews I was expecting something magical and after receiving it I was a bit disappointed. I Will not be repurchasing as my body shop camomile cleanser is just as lovely and half the price.
    A dream to use
    Everything about this cleansing balm is divine. The smell is incredible, the texture is buttery and melts into the most gorgeous oil. The packaging is adorable and the founder is also a genuinely delightful human. I’ve found this brilliant for removing makeup and SPF. A gorgeous first cleanse - cheers me up at the end of the day. Will definitely repurchase (if it doesn’t keep selling out!).
    Buttery smooth balm cleanser
    Love this product! I saw Caroline Hirons mention this and as soon it was available on Cult I purchased it. It is worth the hype. The product just melts as soon as you apply it on to your skin. My skin feels softer and smoother. I will be repurchasing again and again.
    Worth the wait.. lives up to the hype
    This product is unbelievable. If you are an Emma Hardie moringa cleansing balm fan, well meet your new best friend. It feels like butter gliding on your skin and is super hydrating. It’s so hydrating that for the first time in 5 years I forgot to moisturise after cleansing because my skin felt so soft and hydrated. If you are contemplating buying this…. well don’t, just buy it.
    Amazing Product
    I've been waiting to try this for so long and it did not disappoint! I have very sensitive skin and had no issues. Smells and feels amazing, and my skin is actually feeling so much softer now. Will be buying this again and trying the other products!
    Love it
    I bought this initially with the Soothing Tea Gel. It is the perfect double cleanse duo. I use it usually after work to remove my makeup effectively. Leaves my skin soft and not dried out. I have acne prone skin (oily skin).
    It’s good
    I bought it from their site directly, but I’m glad it’s on cult beauty now, much easier to order from here for me personally. It has a kind of medicinal scent but it’s really good at removing makeup and feels nice. And the packaging is really pretty.
    Just wow
    Genuinely the best skincare product I have ever used. The smell, the feel, the results. If you aren't sure - give it a go! You won't regret it
    One of the best
    This is a really good balm - as good as Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm which for me is the gold standard. I will probably go back to the Moringa Cleansing Balm in the end, primarily because it comes in a bigger jar and with a face cloth, but that doesn't change the fact that it's a great product.
    Gorgeous Cleansing Balm
    I absolutely lovee this cleansing balm!
    HG
    I’ve been waiting for this to come back in stock for so long and finally managed to get my hands on it and I’m absolutely in love with it! Beautiful packaging (recyclable too!), lovey silky texture and smells very fresh. It leaves my skin super smooth without stripping moisture but also it’s strong enough to remove makeup. It’s the perfect product for the first cleanse. Price-wise it’s a little expensive but totally worth it as a little bit goes a long way!
    All time fave cleansing balm!
    This cleansing balm is insane! The hype is most certainly real here, this balm smells delicious - think fruity cocktail by the beach, it gets rid of everything on your face with zero irritation - a long time eyeliner fan like me needs a gentle balm, and it leaves the skin super soft. Honestly such a dream to use! Would definitely recommend!
    Fab Product
    There are many similar cleansing balms available so it’s not unique. I tried it after having tried 3 other similar top brands. Loved the smell and feel. Does the job. Pricey though.
    Wonderful
    Love this cleanser, very soft and smooth, melts your make up off, smells great. I also bought this on the recommendation of Caroline Hirons and I’m glad I did. She always gives good advice! I use this every night, leaves my skin very soft.
    SUPERB cleanser
    Oh my word. Where do I start? I bloody love this cleanser. I wasn't looking for a new cleanser as I'm very loyal to my Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel but somehow got sucked into the hype when Caroline Hirons started raving about this one. The scent is spa-like, the texture is dreamy and it just gets the job done in the best possible way. One thing that surprised me as no one really mentioned it in their reviews: it's also refreshening! Which is definitely a bonus during the hotter months of the year. If you love Clinique Take The Day Off Balm you will be blown away by Then I Met You Living Cleansing Balm. For me this is going to be a staple in my skincare stash.
    The best cleanser ever
    Truly divine and a joy to use, it just melts into the skin. All praise to Charlotte Cho for this amazing cleanser. This is in my top 5 of all-time skin favorites.
    Love it
    I was really keen to try this after Caroline Hirons recommended it and I luckily got it when it was available. It’s already sold out so it must be popular. I’m a big Emma Hardie Moringa cleansing balm fan and this is just as nice. I wouldn’t say it leaves my face as hydrated as the Emma Hardie one but it’s so fun to use - fun packaging and the little scooper is really cool to scoop out the gorgeous scented butter. I will be repurchasing.
    Fantastic
    A bit of a sensory overload when I first put it on due to strong scent and he orange/yellow colour but that actually helped me to see if I emulsified all of it off my face while cleansing. Some solid balm cleansers leave me feeling like i've still got a film over my skin but this felt like it cleansed and left my skin as it should. Cheaper ones out there but using this one feels like a treat as well as doing its job.
    Worth the hype and wait…
    Having eagerly awaiting this to go live on Cult Beauty I can confirm it was worth the wait and most definitely not disappointing. There have been such high expectations for this product and it’s lived up to the hype. A perfect first cleanse, the smooth balm melts beautifully into the skin. I then added warm water and continued to rub into the skin emulsifying the product, all traces of SPF and daily grime are gone. The smell, feel of my skin after just amazing. Thanks Cult Beauty for bringing this brand to the UK. Will certainly be buying the Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel for a 2nd cleanse now.
    Worth the wait and hype!.
    I’ve wanted to try this ever since skin queen Caroline Hirons raved about it as her product of 2020 and I’m so glad I snapped one up before they sold out like Adele tickets. It’s such a beautiful cleanser and it isn’t a lumpy balm you have to squash down like lumps of butter it just melts immediately on application. It is such a pleasure to use and it definitely gets off every scrap of SPF and debris of the day. My face felt super soft after and I can’t wait to use it again. It’s made me want to try more of the range. Thank you Cult for bringing this brand to the UK!
    Best cleanser EVER!!
    Periwinkle blue is such a cool colour, it's so retro it's modern schweetie! Anyway, enough about the outside, let's talk about slip baby. This balm melts into a smooth oily massage-bed of fabulousness, lifting all makeup or SPF or dirt from your skin in such a sensuous, delightful way. It either washes off with warm water or, my preference a hot cloth to leave a happy, boosted surface in its wake. This is K-beauty 2.0!
