      This thing does not clean. It turns into a milk like consistency and just mixes with the makeup without disolving it. Plus it made my vision blurry. Do not recommend at all.

      Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser:

      Ok...this product is definitely different. I have used Clinique's Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm.. I absolutely love it! However.. is ELF comparable to Clinique... no it's not..it's DIFFERENT. This product is clear in the jar. I could barely detect a smell from it as well (which is great cause I don't like fragrance in skincare). It isn't like vaseline which others have claimed.. it's more of a "bouncy" texture. Once water hits it; the product thins out and becomes a milky oil and whitish in color. Yes, this took off all my makeup. It "emulsifies" just fine. I didn't feel I had to use a bunch of product to get it off, but I also don't put 5,678 cosmetic products on my face either. This washes away pretty clean; however it does leave an almost "greasy" like feeling behind..but even though I marked it as a "con" but for me that's not a bad thing. Shockingly, Clinque's Cleansing Balm left me a bit drier, but not by much. I'am dry and want moisture as much as possible. For that being said; I feel I didn't have to put an additional moisturizer on afterwards which I like.. (The less products I need; the better)! The BEST part about this product is it did NOT burn my eyes at all and didn't leave a cloudy film on my eyeballs. So.. for me..I'm actually VERY shocked at how well this product works as a cleansing balm at a drugstore price!!! I will buy Clinique's cleansing balm in the future, but it will be more of a "luxury" buy since I'm really enjoying ELF's cleansing balm. I will buy this again and feel the price point is MORE than fair for it. For reference: I'am a dry/sensitive skin type with mild rosacea. P.S. this product did not flair up my normal rosacea or aggravate it. It gets 5 stars from me cause of how well it performed at a drugstore price!

        This product didn't remove my makeup at all. I was really disappointed. I had to double-wash my face in order to achieve anything. It felt a lot like petroleum jelly and you had to use a lot and there isn't much in the jar. Very disappointed.

            This was a fail for me for several reasons: 1) the gel doesn't really seem to clean very well (I use on dry skin and wash away with a warm wet wash cloth) 2) you need a lot of it, so I went through the jar very quickly. This makes it an expensive product for the $/oz. 3) The jar cannot be recycled. I hate to throw something like that into the landfill, so wasteful. I will never repurchase it and I don't recommend it. There are much better value, better performing products available that have recyclable containers.

              Comments about e.l.f. Cosmetics Online Only Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser:

              I never review products but this product definitely exceeded my expectations. I wear long-wearing and waterproof eye makeup everyday and generally steer clear of all makeup removing wipes and liquids that require cotton balls to get it all off. Any tugging of the delicate skin around the eye area is a definite no-no! I had been using Garnier's SkinActive Clean+Gentle Lotion Cleanser + a warm washcloth (which worked perfectly!) but the product was discontinued. This gel cleanser from ELF is not only 100% effective, it's also gentle and emollient. Overall it's a fabulous replacement. Since the jar is so small, I only use it to remove my eye makeup, working a small amount of product over the dry eyelid, undereye and brow area then following up with Garnier's Gentle Sulfate Free Cleanser to remove all traces of the the gel + the rest of my facial makeup. It leaves my eye area perfectly clean, without any residue, tightness or dryness. Well done ELF, another outstanding and affordable product!

                  It didnt remove eye makeup really at all. It left a white film over my eyeball and couldnt see for about 30 seconds. It burns the eyes overall did not like this at all.

                    This is a great product! I do a two step cleansing routine. I first remove make up or dirt and grime and then I cleanse with my regular facial cleanser. I had been using a high end product to dissolve my make up and ran out, so I saw this product and thought I would try it. A small amount goes a long way! I have used it both with moistening my face prior to applying the product, as well as applying on a dry face. It does a good job of dissolving make up and dirt and rinses well. It is a great product, especially for the money. I only wish that it was in a larger jar!

                      I have sensitive, acne prone skin & ive been looking for the most gentle way to remove my makeup... THIS IS IT. It breaks down the makeup & doesn't leave your skin dry, or your pores clogged. I'll definitely repurchase, the price is unbeatable!

                          When I bought this product I was so excited! Something that hydrated and took off my makeup, a double win! I should have know it was too good to be true. The first time I used it it dried out my skin. A few tries later and I noticed that it had a lot of trouble taking off water-proof make up. This was a problem because the reason I bought it was because I have trouble taking off my water-proof eye make up. After I use this product I had to then follow it up with a make up remover wipe. However, it does remover light make up, but I would really call it cleansing. It left my skin feeling like normal and not really clean. Over all this product was a flop.
