Jojoba + Olive Cleansing Balm #weforest
Made in Auckland
"I haven't always appreciated the importance of face cleansing as part of the daily skincare ritual, but then a luscious, elegant balm made its way onto my life and swiftly changed all that. I've used only one other cleansing balm and that was from Eve Lom. This feels so much more sophisticated and natural in comparison. Also, Eve Lom's Cleanser works best on deeply dehydrated skin, whereas the Jojoba + Olive Balm works beautifully on all types (as proven after extensive testing among friends, family + the Small Marvels curation team).
Before diving into exactly what those formulas are, I will say that the first step of getting the cleansing balm regimen right is to invest in some muslin cloths—don't skip it. The routine is simple and truly worth it:
- Slather on your cleansing balm.
- Soak your muslin cloth in hot water, and then hold it over your face for a few seconds.
- Then begin to lather and massage the cleansing balm into the skin with your fingers. (The moisture from the steamy muslin cloth helps it lather)
- Heat the muslin cloth again, and hold it over your face. Its feels like a spa day.
- If you have the energy, repeat steps three and four, and this time, gently wipe away any residual cleansing balm with the muslin cloth.
Now to the balm itself. The rich formula is packed with skin cleansing oils of Jojoba, Castor and Olive, Lemon and Eucalyptus. In terms of multi-tasking, the Jojoba + Olive Cleansing balm is not only a luxurious deep cleanse, but is an overachiever when it ocmes to removing eye make up. After the cleansing ritual, your skin is left deeply moisturised, which is deeply unusual for a cleanser, but perfect nonetheless."

Jojoba + Olive Cleansing Balm comes in an elegant, dark violet miron glass pot, which preserve the precious plant essences for longer than clear alternatives.
Scientific research indicates that violet is the colour that shows the vibration frequency of 720 – 770 billion Hertz; matching the vibration frequency of a human’s central nervous system. As such, the Verite Spa pot enhances and preserves the delicate vibrational energy of the organic plant essences within the cleansing balms, so that it will continue to work at optimum performance on the skin until the last drop.
Verite Spa Organics has partnered with We Forests, to cover the cost of one tree planted for every Verite Spa product purchased at Small Marvels.
Verite Spa founder, Janin fell in love for all things plant at an early age, in the family vegetable patch in South Africa where she grew up, spent many hours watching tiny seeds grow, and creating make believe potions. Janin eventually progressed to studying the aromatic plant world as an Aromatherapist in the UK and South Africa. This began her life long love affair with how the botanical wisdom of nature could help to heal and replenish not only our skin, but our mind and emotions too.
Janin has always loved the range of skincare and treatments experience in a spa environment, but typically their skincare product ingredients are full of chemicals and synthetic fragrances and colours - how could this be good for your skin? And so Verite Spa Organics was born.
