Most Helpful Positive Review Super gentle cleansing balm!
I LOVE this cleansing balm. Cleansing balms are usually my favorite way to remove makeup. In the past, I've used a few others including Farmacy's Green Clean but I haven't found one gentle enough to remove my heavy makeup around my eyes without irritating my eyes at the same time. While I always double cleanse after using a cleansing balm anyway, which would breakdown any leftover oil, I like that this balm doesn't leave an uncomfortable film of oil on the skin. I would highly recommend this balm to anyone with sensitive skin or anyone that wears a full face of makeup regularly. It's extremely gentle yet incredibly effective, especially for the price.
Most Helpful Critical Review Polyethylene=Pollutant
I REALLY wanted to buy this cleansing balm. The e.l.f. Holy Hydration moisturizer is amazing and I fell in love with it, looking forward to trying their Cannabis moisturizer next! However, one of the ingredients that is higher up on the list (which means there's a higher concentration of it in there for those who didn't know) is polyethylene, which is essentially plastic. Someone else left a review on it saying the same thing, and elf responded saying WHAT the polyethylene was in the product for; what elf didn't say is how polyethylene pollutes our water and damages marine wildlife. While I understand why a big company like elf would use and ingredient such as this for mass production purposes, I would prefer to not spend my money on a product with a known pollutant in it. If elf reformulated without the polyethylene, *chef's kiss* take my money

This is my new favorite makeup remover. A little goes a long way! Highly recommend and my face does not feel super dry after.

I have very sensitive skin, and was pretty skeptical. IT WORKS. It took off even waterproof mascara without having to rub my eyes. My eyes are sensitive anyways, and other makeup remover caused me to rub so much. This stuff is AMAZING.
Consuelo from Chicago
I usually use good molecules cleansing balm, but I saw this one and I wanted to try it. It is super good! it removes all my makeup and even waterproof mascara. Doesn't leave me blurry eyes after the use, and I love the smell.
You NEED this makeup remover!!
Berlin from Fayetteville
I am obsessed with this product. It gently melts all of makeup off and it's so easy to work with. I wear A LOT of mascara so when I found this product I was so pleased. The price makes it even more of a diamond in the rough for someone who doesn't like to spend much money on makeup.
This is The One
Lynn from a very dry place
People who said it irritated their eyes/ gave them blurry vision- did you insert it directly into your eyeball? Because I barely touched my eye area with this stuff, and my eye makeup absolutely dissolved. No irritation, no makeup left over in my pores, no greasy after feeling... in fact I would really say it does what it claims and makes my skin feel moisturized after rinsing it off. Amazing.
THE BEST MAKEUP REMOVER!!
LiFev from Tampa, FL
This cleansing balm is HANDS DOWN THE BEST! It melts away the toughest waterproof and non waterproof mascaras, matte lipsticks, as well as all makeup! Leaves my skin super clean and makeup free! For extra cleansing after I rinse it off I use Philosophy Real Purity so my skin is extra clean before bed.
My favorite. Just repurchases.
Donna D from MA
Great product. Great pricepoint
Where have you been, loca?
Sarah from Detroit
Seriously where has this cleansing balm been all my life. I have tried countless other bombs from different brands and different price points and this one is so slept on!! Not only does it take everything off it smells amazing and leaves your skin feeling soft without being stripped
Great price point, great cleanser
Crystal from Georgia
I recently bought my 2nd tub of this. I really like how it removes my make up so easily. I used to use micellar water to remove my makeup but haven't really used any since purchasing this. I have oily skin and haven't had any issues with it as long as I double cleanse and use another cleanser after this one. Would definitely recommend!
Works well for me
Sprinter from Shreveport, LA
I've noticed how my face feels dry after washing my makeup off now that I'm "getting up there". Decided to try the E.L.F. Makeup Melting Balm on a whim. So glad I did. The makeup comes off so easily and I quite like the texture. I do wish they would offer a larger jar.
BETTER THAN CLINQUE
Hannah from NV
I am fully convinced this stuff is WAY better than any other cleansing balm I've tried. It immediately melts into a oil when rubbed into your hands melts the makeup away so fast! It's so smooth and easy to work with. Most balms I've used there is still tugging on my skin when rubbing the makeup away but holy moly does This stuff works. Water proof mascara has no chance against this. I swipe this over my mascara and let it sit while I do the rest of my face and it breaks down the mascara to where there is no residue of it left. ITS SO CHEAP TOO.
Happy from Lubbock Texas
It and my skin didn't agree, starting burning before I could get it rubbed all over my face. Wish it didn't have fragrance, maybe then I could of used it long enough to see if it worked.
Melts away makeup
Anne with an E from Virginia
Dry face, dry hands, melts makeup, rinse, follow with an oil free cleanser for my double cleanse. Works well as a sub for a favorite BP balm I have to mail order. Might switch to this as the other one keeps getting more expensive.
Love Love Love
Elfie from Los Ángeles
Honestly was very astonished by the way this product works! I love it!! I've used other high end brands, but this one works better for less the price. It melts off the makeup really nicely and doesn't dry out the skin! Would recommend 100/100
EASY TO USE
ButtercupDumpling from undisclosed
It begins solid and easy to get an accurate amount then melts done to an oil that cleans off makeup!!!
Anne from TN
Love this! Takes off my make up so easily. Even waterproof mascara! I would not recommend for oily skin, but dry to normal, YES!
jennifer1228 from aurora, co
this i the greatest makeup removing product! i hate removing makeup almost MORE than i love putting makeup on; and this stuff makes removing makeup almost fun! it's easy, and a quick process. HIGHLY recommend this for the lazy person!
Ginger S from Alabama
E.L.T. Makeup Melting Balm stands up to its claims - even melts away stubborn waterproof mascara. Before I tried this Balm (first trial was a sample-with-purchase, then I purchased a full size) I was using a 3 step process to remove makeup and cleanse my face. Makeup Melting Balm does it all and *BONUS* leaves my skin feeling super hydrated. This multitasking Genius has earned a permanent spot in my skincare routine.
Easy to take off makeup
Elfan from New York
I'm in love with this product it melts my makeup and it is so gently on the skin
Cinamon from Scottsdale, AZ
I love this product. I had a hard time finding something that worked with my skin. I started suffering breakouts & nothing seemed to calm them down. This works great on my oily & dry skin. Leaves just enough moisture without leaving my skin feeling greasy. I use it at night & it is great at removing mascara. I would recommend because it's a great price point.
Smooth and effective
jay351 from undisclosed
I've had this product for about 6 or 7 months and I love it. I love the smell (like a clean, linen-esque scent), the texture is super smooth and doesn't feel too heavy on the skin, and when removed with cleanser there's no oily residue. It removes a full face of makeup and doesn't sting or burn around the eyes. The small tool it comes with is helpful as well to make sure you're not scooping out too much. If you have acne prone or super sensitive skin, I would be wary of this only because the scent is very present and it is super greasy.
kmoody from Tennessee
I love this cleansing balm. I've tried several cleansing balms in the past. While they mostly get the job done ive had issues. Either they burn my eyes, dry out my skin and made my face break out. This does none of that. It removes all my makeup, doesn't burn my eyes, feels nice on the skin and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean.
Love this! Works great and leaves skin soft!
AMJ from WI
I use this in my to-go/overnighter make up bag and it works fantastically well! It takes a little bit of rubbing on the eyes to get off all the make up, but it doesn't sting my eyes and feels nice on the skin. The best part? After using this my face doesn't feel dry, it feels super soft and moisturized! If you're looking for a more affordable make up remover, this one is definitely for you! It will also last a long time because you don't need an excessive amount. I always do a double cleanse at home, but with this and a make up remover cloth, I don't feel the need to double cleanse when I'm staying somewhere overnight
Made me break out
Breakout from Ohio
It got rid of my makeup but if you have sensitive skin I'd steer clear it made my eyes burn and my face breakout pretty badly
Works a treat

Lovely cleansing balm, much better than the previous product I was using. Will definitely buy again!
