This budget friendly cleansing balm does indeed make the makeup melt off effortlessly, including waterproof mascara, gel-eyeliner, long lasting foundation and lipstick of any kind just as well as pricier balms from other brands. It has a solid coconut butter like texture while in the jar with a very light pleasant scent but melts into a smooth “oil” as soon as it’s applied on the dry skin. It is easy to use - just scoop out a little bit and massage gently using fingers over the whole face until all the makeup gets loose, then use some water to emulsify while still massaging and to finish just rinse off with warm water. I find there is no residue after the cleansing is done in that order and no need for double cleanse most of the time - my generally oily but sensitive skin looks happy and feels silky smooth after this procedure.
A huge benefit for me is that I get absolutely no irritation or any other negative reaction whatsoever from using it regularly on my hyper-sensitive eye area, not having to rub it with a cotton pad is another plus.
Amazing cleansing balm.
The peptides, ceramides, hyaluronic acid etc. give me the softest, smoothest skin.
The Heimish one is also very good, but it has a more herbal smell, that I am not a fan of.
The Elf one smells amazing! However, the Heimish one is a little cheaper so there’s that.
Otherwise I totally recommend, I got obsessed with this cleansing balm! 💗
I love this! I imaged an oil cleanser being hard to wash off and leaving a residue but this washes off so easy, takes even waterproof mascara off, and leaves no residue!!! It will even wash off with cold water. It’s amazing. Better than I could imagine an oil/balm cleanser being! You won’t regret buying this!
If you find my review helpful it would make my day if you could leave a like ♥️
I really like the clean, nice smell!
The balm melts right away and removes my mascara , with a touch of water it becomes like a milky texture.
I have a combo sensitive skin and I purchased this because its clean from pore clogging ingredients!
Great balm for healthy skin !!! (I do double cleansing)
Highly recommended!!!! I will purchase this for sure!!
I've tried many makeup cleansing balms and this is by far my favourite. I think the cost efficiency is great, and the size of the package is perfect for storing in my medicine cabinet, and is not too bulky to take with me when I travel. I like how it leaves me skin feeling moisturized after without the oily texture.
this is great for those who love balms. but i prefer cleansing oils more than this because there are oils that don't need water to be emulsified. overall, this is a good product. it takes away all the mascaras, foundation, liners, everything but not just my preference for my combination skin.
Omg i love this balm so much !! I use this as my double cleanse too and it doesn’t make my skin feel dry , i feel so soft and remove your sunscreen easily!! If you use waterproof mascara this balm for you !!
I really liked this cleansing balm. It worked well to remove the mineral sunscreen and makeup I’d worn the day I tried it. It rinsed off better than some of the other balms I’ve tried. I didn’t feel like I needed to use a cleanser afterwards but did use one anyway. I’d definitely buy this again. The price is really good compared to most other balms.
If there is a scent it’s very light. I couldn’t detect any scent sticking my nose right in the jar, but I am a little stuffed up with allergies.
My skin can be slightly sensitive and I did not find this to be irritating at all. My skin felt very nice after using it.
The packaging is very nice quality. It comes with a spatula to scoop out the product. It would have been nice if the lid included a spot to hold the spatula or if the jar was wide enough to store the spatula inside, but that’s a small complaint.
