Melt away your makeup. Nyakio's Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm is a sumptuously rich, transformative balm-to-oil cleanser that gently melts away makeup, dirt, and impurities, leaving behind radiantly clean skin.

Key Benefits:
  • Melts from balm to oil
  • Gently removes dirt and impurities
  • Leaves skin soft, glowing, and hydrated
  • Enriched with nourishing sweet almonds from Spain
  • 100% Vegan
  • Cruelty-Free

Global beauty secrets. Cultural traditions. Indigenous ingredients. Women of the Mediterranean reveal that their greatest beauty secret is a diet rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids. To complement this, women turn to antioxidant-rich oils such as sweet almond to clean and preserve their skin. Conditioning and clarifying, Nyakio's oil is sourced directly from one of the picturesque, sun soaked almond groves in the Spanish countryside, where Nyakio discovered the nourishing benefits of almond oil.

Formulated without sulfates, phthalates, parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, formaldehyde, butylene glycol.

Scoop out a small dollop and warm between hands, allowing the balm to melt. Gently massage the oil onto the face, using circular motions. Rinse well with warm water or wipe away with a tissue, for extra moisture.

Nyakio's Tip: "When I take my makeup off at night, I sometimes need a little extra cleansing so I add a pinch of the Chinese Rice Powder. It's the perfect multi-tasking combination."

    Comments about Nyakio Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm:

    I used this as step 1 in my night time cleansing. It did a great job of liquefying and removing my makeup. I appreciate that it doesn't have any odor. I rinsed it off and followed with my second cleanser, it washed off well..

        Comments about Nyakio Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm:

        This product is really great. Some complain that it doesn't emulsify and it leaves an oily feeling on the skin, but I always follow oil cleansing with a regular cleanser, so I don't have this issue. This leaves my skin feeling so soft and it works well to take off any remaining makeup left on my skin after removing it with micellar water. Overall great product

        Does Not Rinse Off

        By Trina

        from MD

        Comments about Nyakio Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm:

        I do not wipe cleansing balm away. I rinse, then wipe with a cleansing cloth, then cleanse with my cleanser. this did not budge. the instructions say rinse or wipe. left a film on my face that I needed to wash off multiple times with cleanser. I noticed beeakouts after a few uses. good ingredients just not for my oily skin. I can see dry skin beauties liking this...

          I'm very pleased with Sweet Almond Cleansing Balm.
          It is gentle, leaves my skin feeling very clean and it it moisturizing. I needed to find a product that
          did not contain coconut because I am allergic to it.
          And you know coconut is in everything.

            I purchased the trio for skin care, and this came with. It does not emulsify, nor does it rinse off, but for me and my dry skin, using a facial sponge to remove left me with a marvelously moisturized face. As someone else noticed, I can really skip night moisturizer after this, which I appreciate.

              Comments about Nyakio Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm:

              This is a great product to use as your first step in two step cleansing. Twice a week I add some of their rice powder to gently exfoliate and my skin has never been softer and more moisturized. This product doesn't come off easy but like I said I use this as my first step and it gently removes all makeup. I have acne prone aging skin and the ingredients in this are non irritating and has no acne triggers. It is awesome. I will continue to purchase this and the rice powder. I did not break out at all. I highly recommend this product.

              Comments about Nyakio Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm:

              Let me preface this by saying I have oily, acne-prone skin. That being said, this product was not made for people with skin like mine. When I first used this, I was surprised once I broke down the balm in my hand, it turned into a literal oil. The oil was not thin, it was very thick and I could feel it tug as I rubbed it on my face. When I tried to rinse it off with water, it did not emulsify cleanly like most cleansing balms. Instead, it left a greasy film on my face. I had to wash my face multiple times with my facial cleanser to get rid of the oil film. Afterwards, my face did feel soft, but the next day I broke out terribly. The reason I gave this product more than one star is because I understand its purpose for people with dry skin, and if they wipe off their makeup with a towel, I can imagine this being a nice product. But, it is NOT, I repeat NOT a traditional cleansing balm like the Clinique Take the Day Off. So if you have oily or acne-prone skin, do not get this product.
