Massage a scoop (using the bamboo spatula provided) of balm into dry skin, allowing the cleanser to break down makeup (yes you will have panda eyes) and dissolve excess oil and impurities from the skin. Add a splash of warm water (the oil turns into an easily rinseable milk) and massage again to begin emulsifying the cleanser. Next, fully rinse off using warm water, or a warm damp flannel. Can be used AM and PM as part of your regular daily cleanse. For an intensive hydrating mask, leave the balm on your skin for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.
