UpCircle Cleaning Balm
An everyday cleansing balm to gently remove makeup, pollution and impurities. Skin is deeply cleansed, soothed and hydrated.
Suitable for all skin types. Apricot powder is combined with skin-calming blackcurrant seed, blue tansy and sea buckthorn oils.
Reused, repurposed, reloved. This cleansing balm is made with the finely-ground powder of discarded apricot stones, a natural by-product of the apricot oil industry and rich in antioxidant Vitamin E.
The balm was awarded "Best Value" product in the Women's Running 2020 Awards.
How To Use
- Massage a coin-sized amount between your fingers and onto face in upward circular motions. Remove with a warm, damp cloth to reveal a clearer, brighter complexion. Best used as the first cleanse to break down make-up, SPF and any oils (sebum, sweat) on the surface of the skin. Follow with a water-based cleanse (like our chai soaps) to remove any impurities in the pores. Suitable for daily use.

How Can I Check The Products Are Suitable Without Purchasing Full Sized Products?
UpCircle was born out of the idea of minimising waste so we created the Pamper Kit so you can try before you buy! We would recommend trying the Pamper Kit first to everyone, especially those with sensitive skin. We also recommend to do a patch test on your neck before using any product, if a reaction occurs discontinue use.
Why Do You Use A Preservative?
We collect used coffee grounds from London's finest cafes, bars and restaurants. This organic matter needs to be kept in best condition, so we use the only natural preservative permitted by Natrue, the European natural cosmetic board.
Each ingredient can be found in nature. We believe this is a tiny price to pay in order to save good stuff from landfill, and leave the world better than we found it.
