A new crop of cleansing salves is keeping it fresh. Made with a blend of essential oils, these sulfate-free balms remove makeup and dirt while softening and moisturizing. Massage one of these three gentle, paraben-free pomades on dry skin, then rinse with water and a washcloth or muslin. Don't be deterred by their prices—a pea-sized amount is all you need for each wash.
