If you love a multi-functional product, then you’ll love the Tri Balm by Frances Prescott. It’s an all-in-one cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser.
What makes it unique from all other beauty products on the market, is its unique application. It comes in a twist-up stick, kind of like a deodorant. I was very curious to see how it would work as I’ve never come across a product quite like it!

The Tri Balm really works like any other cleansing balm. The only difference is that it is in a twistable stick format, which I have to say is simply brilliant!
It makes it so easy, less messy and much more fun to use. The stick literally melts your makeup totally and hassle-free. The makeup comes off beautifully and leaves the skin feeling really soft and clean.
Like most 3-in-1 products, it doesn’t do all 3 things the best. It cleanses beautifully, but as an exfoliator, it’s not quite as good. It only exfoliates lightly, so I recommend having another stronger exfoliator that you can use once or twice a week.
As for moisturising, it’s not exactly a moisturizer. It can be used as a mask for extra hydration. Why they call it a moisturiser isn’t clear! To use it as a mask, leave it on your face for about 10 minutes and then rinse it off or wipe away. Check out other face masks here.
How to use it?
Applying the cleansing stick couldn’t be easier, all you need is one free hand and apply it evenly on your face and neck.
After applying the cleansing stick you can either wash it off with water, or you can wipe it down with a tissue. I like that it has both options because generally speaking, I like rinsing my face with water, but for the times that I’m feeling lazy….;)
One of my favourite things about the Tri Balm is that it’s only made from good-for-you ingredients. There are no chemicals, silicones or parabens. This means that it’s not harmful to your skin.
It’s made from a combination of oils like sunflower, sweet almond, rice bran, carrot tissue, geranium and a couple of others. All these oils help to hydrate and moisturise the skin along with vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid. Basically, it’s packed with a ton of ingredients that can benefit your skin.
As with all skin products, I recommend doing a patch test first to make sure you don’t react to it in any way. Especially if you have sensitive skin.
Tri Balm by Frances Prescott is an amazing cleanser! And I love the packaging. It looks so luxurious and professional. It has a super clean and minimalistic feel to it, which reflects on its ingredients too.
The Tri Balm is a really easy cleanser to use with no hassle involved. It’s perfect for you if you travel a lot or if you’re short on time and find taking care of your skin a chore. The Tri Balm is not messy and you have all you need in one product. It doesn’t get easier than that!
All in all, a great product which cleanses beautifully. It leaves the skin feeling soft and clean! Does it do all 3 tasks properly? Not exactly. As an exfoliator and mask, I would say it’s about 70% effective.
The main disadvantage to the Frances Prescott Tri Balm is that it’s really expensive. For a more affordable cleanser, check out these ones.
