Cleanser & makeup remover that calms, protects, and strengthens skin / 4.4 oz
M Picaut Golden Amber Probiotic Cleansing Balm is a gentle makeup remover and cleanser that melts away makeup (even waterproof mascara), sunscreen, and daily debris while calming sensitive skin.
The first thing you'll notice is its unusual texture: it feels like a thick, creamy gel upon application, then turns into a light milk with a splash of water. For those who find oil-to-milk cleansers difficult to work with, it’s a refreshing change (as is its warm, subtly cookie-like scent).
The other unusual aspect of this cleanser is the wide range of ages it can appeal to. Creator Mette Picaut was originally inspired by her teenage daughter Ella, who wondered why the M Picaut lineup didn’t include a makeup remover. Younger skin will appreciate the formula’s sebum-regulating complex and soothing properties, while more mature skin will love its vitamin C-rich sea buckthorn and cloudberry, vitality-boosting amber extract, and nourishing apricot kernel oil.
This balm cleanser perfectly encapsulates the less-is-more philosophy behind this Swedish brand; as Mette puts it, “Fewer products, loaded with the finest ingredients, will do more for the skin. Golden Amber contains moisturizers, pre- and probiotics, vitamin-rich oils, and fine plant extracts: all the things that skin loves. It’s a luxurious, soothing, yet effective everyday cleanser that gives skin a lot of moisture and luster.”
It’s a great addition to this beloved Swedish brand.
How to Use
Add some lukewarm water. The balm will turn into a light milk.
- Amber extract has long been thought to strengthen the skin barrier and prevent excess water loss.
- Vitamin C-rich cloudberry from the northern forests of Sweden energizes and boosts radiance while reducing sensitivity. Also reduces sensitivity, redness and acne.
- Vitamin B5 in combination with Farnesyl Acetate helps control the overproduction of sebum.
