Amazon shoppers love this $11 makeup

Jun 21, 2023Jun 21, 2023

At the end of a long day, I never feel like taking my makeup off and washing my face. I just want to go to bed. However, waking up with a face full of makeup never feels good either. To help speed up the process, I started looking for a better makeup remover and came across this Amazon best seller. Thousands of Amazon shoppers say that the e.l.f. Makeup Melting Face Balm is the holy grail for quickly removing every bit of foundation and mascara — and it could also help improve your skin.

Oily skin girls can use it, too.

“Just wow,” wrote one reviewer. “I was afraid to try a cleansing balm, because I have oily/combination skin and blackheads, and was terrified this would make them worse. After trying this out, I wish I had started so much sooner! It has actually helped get RID of the blackheads, and leaves my skin super soft. This price point is amazing! Don’t skip on this amazing product!!”

The $11 cleansing balm is just as described: It’s a solid balm. Rub some of it over dry skin and watch it turn into a luxurious oil. Then, use warm water to turn it into a soft, milky texture that rinses off easily. Your skin will feel hydrated, soft and, yes, totally clean.

A lot of people assume that cleansing balms and oils will make your skin feel greasy or oilier. But actually, the oil clings to the makeup, dirt, sunscreen and oil in your pores and extracts it once rinsed off. Still, if you’d like, you could do a double cleanse (as seen all over TikTok) and wash your face with a gentle cleanser after using the balm. But you can use the cleansing balm on its own, too.

“It’s a miracle in a jar,” wrote another Amazon reviewer. “I am on my second jar of this amazing product! I’ve been changing my skin care and makeup to cruelty-free and vegan [products], so I was thrilled when I tried this from e.l.f. I use it morning and night. Not only does it remove mascara well, but I use the cream eyeliner and it is gone in a flash. I also use a teeny tiny bit to clean my cream eyeliner brush, so easy! I love it.”

The e.l.f. Makeup Melting Face Balm contains good-for-your-skin ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides and ceramides for hydrating your skin. It doesn’t contain toxic or comedogenic ingredients like ethylhexyl palmitate, a common skin-irritating ingredient in many other balms. In other words, there’s no harm in trying it, especially if you want a quick, nightly skin care routine that will help you wake up with a fresh, hydrated face in the morning.
