Most Helpful Positive Review Game changer
I am an avid used of the Liz Earle cleanse and polish and have been using this every evening to remove my makeup. I recently bought this product to try to mix up my routine and it is a complete game changer! Usually with the Liz Earle cleanse and polish I have to double cleanse to make sure my make up is all removed and even then I use a face brush which still removes residue. The pro-collagen cleansing balm literally melted the make up off my face meaning I used less product and spent less time doing so! To check I used my face brush and there was no residue what so ever. This has made me review my whole routine and I can't wait to use it again!
Most Helpful Critical Review I thought I would love this but didn't
I'm an avid cleansing balm user and have tried countless balms and oils. I always wanted to try this one but the price always stopped me. I finally pulled the trigger and was not as happy as I thought I'd be. There are things I love and things I really hate about this product. First of all, I LOVE the texture of this. It's super thick and melts into a really nice nourishing oil. It feels amazing on my very dry skin. It emulsifies easily, rinses clean, and removes makeup very very well. But, the smell is SO strong. I couldn't believe it. I knew this had a scent, and I actually prefer my first cleansers have a bit of a scent to make the experience extra luxurious, but this is extreme. I almost have to hold my breath while I use it, which is not something I've ever experienced before. Again, I like my balms to have a fragrance and fragrance in product is not something that ever stops me from using something. Also, this burns my eyes so badly. I have started taking my eye makeup off before I use this because it's so irritating, which almost defeats the purpose of why I use a balm like this in the first place. Overall, if you don't mind scent and this doesn't burn your eyes, this is a nice balm. I highly suggest getting a sample before you pay for this since it's a bit of an investment. I would not buy again or recommend this because there are so many others on the market that work as well without any issues that are much more affordable.

I very mistakenly assumed Elemis is cruelty free. They're not. I will never repurchase as I will not use any product that is so cruelly and unnecessarily tested on innocent animals.
This is now part

This is now part of my winter make up removal ritual. As soon as I get home, I wash my hands, apply this all over my face, then I'll either use a make up remover wipe or warm water to rinse off. I love that it's moisturizing in this cold weather when my skin feels really dry!
Elxis from NJ
It is super soft on the skin, gets rid of all makeup, and even gives you a little bit of moisture to your face.
I was so shocked
rebeccaj0ee5 from undisclosed
I was so shocked by how easy and smooth this was to use. Like just the way the balm spreads on your skin, it was so buttery smooth and pleasant to use that it almost justifies the price. And it removed my makeup quite well. Great cleansing balm!
Not worth the price.
Sheryl from RI
Why add menthol?? Especially for something that will inevitably end up in your eyes? This is the first thing I noticed about this balm. Aside from that horrible skincare ingredient, the balm itself is meh. It takes a lot of product to spread evenly across the face and for the price, definitely not worth it. It does a great job at taking off all makeup and SPF, but you HAVE to double cleanse afterward. Again, just meh.
Love this! Must have
EriAn from Ny
I got this on my allure Beauty box , totally loved it , I bought the full size.
The fragrance is a little strong. Melts my makeup like magic, game changer .
This stuff is wonderful
Annie from Denton, Texas
I got a sample in a monthly subscription box and fell in love with the smell. I wish it went on sale now & then. I'd give it 5 stars if the price was more affordable.
Not worth the price
BfromCaliii from Raleigh, NC
It's just ok. The smell is very strong & it lingers even after cleanser. The smell isn't pleasant either. It's like old lady perfume. The product works ok. It doesn't rinse as clean or emulsify as effectively as other cleansing balms on the market. Would not recommend because it's not worth the price.
I Know It's Pricey, BUT...!
Tris D from Kansas City
This isn't cheap, but it's SO worth it!! Cleansing my face has never been so quick and easy. The balm is not messy, not at all sticky, and it immediately warms up as soon as I rub it into my hands and onto my face. It luxuriously cleanses my face without over-stripping and my skin looks and feels smooth as silk afterwards. One of my fave products ever!!
Love it. Makes face feel soft and clean

Makes face feel soft and clean
Beauty Consumer from US
I love cleansing balms. This smells strongly, paint thinner? It was hard to place. I later realized it was Eucalyptus and Menthol. Both are highly sensitizing ingredients as are citrus oils which are in here too. My skin felt a bit itchy then I realized I had pinkness in the face, a sign of irritation. I will go back to the Clinique one that has no essential oil or menthol.
The absolute best
Genny from Fl
It cleans like magic and make skin feel so smooth
Great for eye makeup remover
Laura from Lawrenceville ga
I got a travel size of this product with allure box and I really love it
Favorite cleansing balm by FAR
Antoinette from Bay Area, California
I've tried many cleansing balms, I have comb skin. I'm almost 40 and pretty sensitive to smell. This is not highly fragranced. I do cleanse after and feel nice and comfortable clean. My skin always feels super soft after cleansing and removes all drops of makeup including lash glue. And I swear it makes my eyelashes grow!
Not for me
Kimmy from San Diego
It did take off my makeup well, particularly my eye makeup which can be quite stubborn, but it totally clogged my pores! Maybe I don't have the right skin type for this product; I bet people with dry skin would really enjoy this, while my oily/combo skin did not do well with it at all. Bummer because it's pretty expensive, but oh well! It's also quite messy so just a heads up
Really nice cleansing balm
SB from Arizona
I received this in a beauty box and have really been enjoying it. The fragrance is nice and lemony, but may be too strong for folks who are sensitive. Probably wouldn't purchase again due to price, but otherwise a great product.

This is an excellent product to leave my face clean without drying my skin. I'm sold.
How it feels on oily skins
anonymous from Houston texas
Smells great, not too strong. When you first apply, it is oily as it melts on your skin, but unlike other cleansing oils, this one doesn't feel excessive.
anonymous from undisclosed
This is awesome....
K from San Francisco
If you like rubbing highly scented Vaseline on your face. Texture is awful and it is highly scented. Takes off my makeup but leaves a tiny bit behind, but leaves my skin feeling dirty and like my pores are clogged.
Elemis cleansing balm

It's gentle, cleans your face and smells good
anonymous from undisclosed
I have been struggling with mask acne lately and my normal face wash wasn't helping at all. My mom recommended using this as she loves it, i was nervous due to always having sensitive skin, but after 2 weeks I am obsessed and my skin is looking beautiful and acne is going away!
anonymous from Tuscaloosa, Alabama
This is one of my favorite products! It is so creamy and does a great job removing my make up. Love, love the smell!
Best makeup remover ever

anonymous from undisclosed
Luxurious scent and texture. Takes off make up so nicely. Wonderful as a quick hydrating mask as well!
