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

    I've used this product twice now, and am tossing it in the bin. This "cleanser" doesn't really clean at all -- it absolutely doesn't remove makeup, nor does it remove oils from the face. What it does do is leave a greasy film on top of your skin.

    Those saying they used a washcloth to wipe if off are USING IT WRONG. Water activates it into a milky substance. Its foamed lightly. Dont use this in your eyeballs. Why are you even doing that? Please use a separate eye makeup remover for your eyes and follow instructions.

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

      I used this multiple times as well as the Clinique Take The Day Off and prefer this one because the Clinique one is more oil based and left me feeling oily and with breakouts. Both work the same and cost the same for the amount of product you get when you do the math on dollar per oz. but this ELF one is better for us with sensitive skin who want something water based that won't break us out.

      Made my face dry and break out

      By Bri

      from Jackson

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

      Bought this about 2 weeks ago and after using it twice, I noticed it made my skin very dry. I tried using my normal moisturizer with it but it stayed dry, also noticed my face breaking out which has not happened in a few years. Switched back to my normal Philosophy Cleanser, the dryness and acne went away. Will never buy this again.

          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!

          It really makes my skin feel super hydrated after each use!! My face doesn't dry out from all of my makeup as the day goes on!! I definitely recommend using a facial brush when using this product!!

            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.

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

                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!
