JustBe Cleansing Balm

Caroline Hirons

“This is one of the nicest cleansing balms I have ever used. I know you know how many cleansing balms I have used in my lifetime. It’s that good.

The cleansing balm easily and effortless removes all of my makeup and leaves no residue. Eye makeup is no problem.  I’ve been double cleansing with this if I have a face full of makeup (obvs), but I would happily use this for both my morning cleanse and evening ‘skin’ cleanse.  A little goes a long way.

Suitable for all skin types and the essential oils are not in at a ridiculously high strength so you should be fine if you have sensitivities. The smell is extremely subtle.  Highly recommended.

JustBe Eye Makeup Remover

FreeFrom Skincare Awards | Face Care (Take Off) Bronze Award

Unbelievable! Quick and easy to use, a gentle wipe and my eyes and lashes were sparkling clean and moisturised in one go. Lashes looked thicker after a monthbecause I don’t rub them any more. Pure ingredients. A little gem.”

Good Spa Guide

The product size is perfectly balanced, substantial enough to be used regularly, but small enough to travel with.  JustBe Cleansed is very well priced for what it offers, it did everything it promised and more. All the ingredients are natural, and the fact it is handmade in the UK make the lotion feel extra special.  The results were fantastic, my skin felt really cleansed, smooth and nourished. Most importantly, it was a really enjoyable experience that left my eye area silky and bright. This is my favourite JustBe product and I would definitely buy it again.”


“…this is a lovely dual purpose nourishing cleanser that removes every trace of light and heavy makeup including waterproof mascara and long wearing eyeliner and also gently cleanses the skin. It leaves my skin feeling absolutely clean, smooth and nourished

“My son’s skin is at that typical pre puberty stage where his cheeks are still baby soft but his nose is erupting into a festering mess waiting to happen…open pores, blackheads and small angry looking blemishes. Twice a day he used this, especially concentrating on his nose. The effects of this gel are clearly visable….blackheads have reduced in size and number, open pores are all gone and the blemishes are much calmer looking. His skin looks much clearer, brighter and healthier.” 

JustBe Hydrated Serum

YOU Beauty Discovery Box

“I was overwhelmed with the results – this all natural formula immediately quenched my skin, without leaving it greasy, and worked miracles on my décolletage – an area that I am super paranoid about.  It smells amazing and feels super nourishing.”

JustBe Radiant Restoring Cream

Holistic Green Beauty

This is a multi purpose product as it is actually a moisturiser and sunscreen all in one. Upon application the skin feels hydrated. It provides the perfect base for makeup Despite the small 30ml size, this product it has lasted 8 weeks and I have been applying the product liberally to ensure I get adequate sun protection.”

JustBe Soft Lip Balm

Luxe List

“Packaged in the most adorable little glass jar with screw lid, the balm feels super luxurious to use. I adore the light minty scent, and it keeps my lips feeling so soft for a good few hours at a time. The dinky size means that it is super convenientto pop it into my makeup bag.”

“You only need a small amount of JustBe's Cleansing Balm to remove all of your makeup. I have really been enjoying spending some time massaging it into the skin before removing with a muslin cloth, in fact this little bed time ritual is one of my favourite parts of the day!  I use it all over the eye area and have experienced no stinging at all, it melts away mascara, eye shadow and liner easily and quickly.

The Cleansing Gel is wonderfully refreshing and uplifting in the mornings as it is scented with mandarin and grapefruit. Because this does not contain SLS or other harsh surfactants this leaves the skin feeling really fresh and clean without the dry/tight feeling you can sometimes get from face washes.

JustBe's Restoring Cream is a very versatile cream that can be used both in the daytime and at night. It contains zinc oxide which is a natural SPF which is essential for protecting the skin against the sun. This has a very light almost mousse feel to it but it still manages to be incredibly moisturising. It has a lovely scent like the cleansing balm slightly woody coming from the Petigrain not at all overpowering but subtle and relaxing.

I can’t recommend the products highly enough, I am in love!

would give the Swiss a run for their chocolate money.   JustBe Tranquil aromatherapy bar – white chocolate with lavender and topped with raspberries is as delicious as it sounds, in fact taste-wise I’d rank it even better than a brand like Green & Black’s.”

“is delicious and each one contains a health boosting or soul soothing ingredient including; cleansing juniper, invigorating geranium, warming clove oil or refreshing pink grapefruit. So you can have a wee treat and help your body and mind all at the same time, without feeling guilty. Just a little bit naughty and a whole lot of good.”

JustBe Organic Herbal Teas

“I have to say these teas are quite simply heavenly. I have a mug of Loved in my hand right this very second, and it’s a truly delicious sensory experience. A delicate blend of hibiscus flowers, rose petals and jasmine that isn’t at all overpowering, instead it is helping to soothe my mind, body and spirit. The best way I can describe this tea is that it’s like receiving a warm, vibrant hug from a mug.”

JustBe Detox Herbal Tea “I tried this and fell in love as it didn’t give me allergy symptoms like normal tea does. I’ve since added it to my new health schedule every few days which I believe has helped me lose over a stone in weight *yay*”

JustBe Elemental Signature Treatment

New You Magazine

“The therapist begins by rubbing my skin with coarse salt (finer or more coarse salt can be selected beforehand). Then warm oil is poured over my body before I am put in a cocoon of mineral-rich Scottish peat, treated with aromatic eucalyptus oil. While relaxing in this warm blanket, my face and scalp are gently worked over. The peat is washed off and additional oils are massaged into my thirsty skin. The Scottish peat has numerous benefits, according to the spa, including moisture retention and improved skin elasticity. I feel soft all over, and the stiffness I’ve accumulated during travel evaporates.”

One of Gail’s latest spa treatments, which has just been introduced at Armathwaite Hall Spa in the Lake District, is called JustBe Elemental and includes using Scottish peat in a thermal peat wrap. Gail says: “I’ve found peat to be simply incredible. Peat has traditionally been used to treat a multitude of ailments, from mobility problems, arthritis, and hormonal imbalance to post-surgery recovery and  muscle recovery in sports medicine.

“It’s also a rich source of minerals, including iron, zinc, copper and magnesium, which help heal, nourish and detoxify. It has been shown to have powerful preserving effects and has excellent moisture-retaining qualities, which help to firm up the skin and improve elasticity. “Peat is also a natural support for weight-loss as the thermal effect boosts the metabolic rate, which helps burn fat.”

“JustBe Elemental uses Atlantic sea salt and Scottish peat and is amazing for tackling cellulite, anti-ageing and as an aid to weight loss. The skin is prepared with JustBe Pure Salt Scrub to remove dead skin cells and boost the circulation. Warm oil is drizzled over the body, a soothing combination of mandarin and lavender, before the mineral rich peat mask is applied. Peat has numerous health benefits including: moisture retaining qualities and improving skin elasticity. Whilst relaxing in a thermal cocoon, the client receives a pressure point facial and a nourishing scalp massage. Once the peat had been removed, warm oil is gently massaged into the skin. The soluble organic active ingredients leave the skin detoxified, purified and toned.”

What was the most valuable lesson you learned?

“To be myself, to be authentic and to keep going. If you feel you’ve run out of energy and inspiration, keep going. Tomorrow’s another day and you don’t have to do it all right now. That “you’re better than you think you are” and that “you are enough”.Things that every small business owner needs to be reminded of now and again.”

“The development of the skincare products, chocolate and tea is done in Gail’s kitchen, not in a state-of-the-art laboratory. She uses as few ingredients as possible, all natural and no nut oils, which make her products suitable for all skin types, as well as for those who have nut allergies.”
