Juno & Co Clean 10 Cleansing Balm

AD info | The Juno & Co Clean 10 Cleansing Balm was sent to me by the brand, however, I am under no obligation to post this review.

I'm back this week with another exciting cleansing balm review, and this time it's the Juno & Co Clean 10 Cleansing Balm that's taking center stage. As someone who relies heavily on cleansing balms, finding a good one always gets me excited. Juno & Co actually sent me this product last year, and while I did a brief review on my Instagram, I believe it's about time this gem got its own dedicated blog post!

About Juno & Co

Founded in 2017, Juno & Co is a beauty brand that embraces simplicity and minimalism. They focus on creating products with just a few key ingredients, aiming to reduce wasteful consumption and provide only what's necessary. You might have even seen their Clean 10 Cleansing Balm and microfiber sponges go viral on social media platforms like TikTok.

If you're keen to learn more about Juno & Co and its beginnings, I highly recommend checking out The Story of a Brand podcast episodes with co-founder Mira Torres.

What Makes the Clean 10 Cleansing Balm Special?

The Clean 10 Balm is an oil-based cleanser that lives up to its name by containing only 10 ingredients. It's designed to gently remove makeup while brightening and nourishing the skin simultaneously.

Standout Ingredients

  • Fermented Japanese pearl barley: Rich in vitamins B3 and E, pearl barley has proven to brighten the skin and prevent hyperpigmentation. It also fights against free radicals.
  • Tocopheryl acetate: A synthetic form of vitamin E, it protects the skin from free radicals and aids in wound healing.

How to Use the Clean 10 Cleansing Balm

Using the included spatula, scoop out a small amount of the product and warm it up between your fingers. Once the balm transforms into an oil, gently massage it onto your skin, paying special attention to the eye area. Rinse off with lukewarm water or use a reusable cotton round/washcloth to ensure thorough removal.

How Do I Feel About...?

THE SCENT

The Clean 10 Cleansing Balm has a refreshing, citrusy scent, thanks to the inclusion of orange peel oil. It's noticeable but not overpowering, striking the perfect balance for a skincare product.

THE TEXTURE

What sets the Clean 10 Cleansing Balm apart is its smooth and creamy texture. It effortlessly melts into your skin without requiring much rubbing. Unlike some other cleansing balms that can feel scratchy or grainy, this one is super gentle.

The balm starts as a solid in the tub, transforms into an oil upon contact with the skin, and rinses off as a milk. I personally adore this three-step transformation, and it's one of the reasons why this balm stands out.

THE PACKAGING

While the product itself is brilliant, the packaging is my least favorite aspect. The blue and beige cardboard box feels a bit underwhelming for such an exceptional product. However, after perusing their website, I noticed that the design has been updated, and the new packaging is a significant improvement.

Although the plastic pot with its hidden second lid is functional, I found it challenging to close properly. In the end, I discarded the second lid to ensure the product remained sealed. The concept of the compartment with a spoon and second lid is excellent, but I wish it worked more efficiently.

Sustainability Notes

Juno & Co claims to prioritize sustainability, emphasizing simplified formulas and minimized waste production. However, I would appreciate more concrete figures and explicit ESG goals on their website. They mention that the packaging is reusable and recyclable, and their Instagram reveals that each cleansing balm sold saves 100 makeup wipes. They also use upcycled ingredients in some of their products, like the Clarifying Cleansing Powder. It would be fantastic if they highlighted this information directly on their website.

Overall Thoughts

Without a doubt, the Clean 10 Cleansing Balm is one of the best I've ever tried. Its buttery texture and zesty scent make it a delight to use, while its gentle nature is perfect for my sensitive skin. Unlike other cleansing balms, this one doesn't leave a sticky residue or feel scratchy. It effortlessly removes makeup, including waterproof mascara.

You can purchase this fantastic product directly from the Juno & Co website. At £14 ($14.95) for 85g, it's incredibly affordable for a high-quality cleansing balm. I even included it on my list of affordable cleansing balms under £15, along with some of my other top picks.

One small request: it would be wonderful if Juno & Co skincare were more readily available for UK and ROW customers. While you can find their microfiber sponges on Beauty Bay, it seems you can't order their skincare products from major UK retailers.
