Most Helpful Positive Review Great Product!
This is an awesome makeup remover - it absolutely does the job! For someone that wears false lashes and heavy makeup on a regular basis, Beekman's 1802 Buttermilk Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm does just that - it literally melts the makeup off your face. It's a fun consistency - I'd compare it to coconut oil - it's hard at first when you scoop it out of the jar (think cold coconut oil), and once it hits your palms and face it begins to melt into liquid oil. Leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and nourished. The only thing I would note about this product is that you do need something else to remove it - this isn't a one and done type of product. If you try to rinse it off with water only, you'll be left with a greasy film of smeared makeup on your face. But literally, a warm washcloth works great, and I always follow it up with my regular cleanser and toner. All-in-all, it's a fantastic product - way better than makeup remover wipes. Definitely worth a try!

Most Helpful Critical Review Packaging amazing, product not so much
I wanted to like this product a lot, because the packaging is amazing. Love the little scoop holder, making it super sanitary to use. Unfortunately, I don't really like the product itself. It definitely melts makeup off, but it leaves a grimey film on the skin. At first I thought it was just leaving my skin moisturized- but I checked with micellar water soaked on a cotton pad and makeup residue was still there after cleansing with the balm. I have to use another face wash to really deep clean after using this product. I would rather pay for a face wash that deep cleans instead of using multiple products.

Although it feels good applying to skin, it does not emulsify. It takes a good cleanser to help wash off. I've used much better balms/oils for 1/3 of the price. Plus it smells weird and comes heavily packaged.
Does the job removing make-up & sunscreen well
ML from The Villages, FL
While this cleansing balm does the job of removing make-up and does not irritate my skin (bonus!), I did not love it like I do some other cleansing balms. So 4 out of 5 stars. Others may love. it is a good product.
It's Like Butter & Milk
Jules from Fairview Heights, IL
I've been on the hunt for a good make-up remover that isn't harsh on my skin. Specifically around my eyes because of all the heavy winged liner I wear almost daily. I tried this out and it was really simple, soft and no irritation at all! First, I recommend using a small amount on the cheeks, forehead and chin/nose. Those areas could use a smaller than pea size amount. From there, I work it into my skin, slowly adding cool to warm water blending the mixture together. It starts out like a solid butter, soft and melts into the skin after adding the water. Be alert; it turns into a blendable consistency after adding water but it isn't suds like soap or foam at all. It's milky so it glides across the skin. Personally, I used a soft facial cloth to help guide the product and gently circular motions on my skin. After rinsing clean, my skin looked fresh, felt very soft and healthy. It was clear of makeup without a "oily" or "tight" feel like some makeup removers. It's worth the price and a little goes a long way. It has a slight scent but more of a "farmers market goat milk soap" scent. All natural scent that doesn't irritate my skin and is VERY faint.
Melts makeup and a does a whole lot more
Nancy from Undisclosed
This product was suggested to me after I did a skincare consult. I used it and I found that I gave my face more moisture. This will be quite helpful in the coming winter months. Thank you Beekman boys.
Love this product
Tammy from Undisclosed
This is wonderful product. My skin feels dewy and younger
Elizabeth from Undisclosed
I use this in the am and pm to massage my moisturizer in... I go very slowly as the Doctor ordered in the Bloom session... it's my "me" time
Melt makeup away to bloom
Tina from Undisclosed
Melts makeup away. Doesn't irritate my sensitive red skin. Love all the probiotic line. Bloom away you will not regret it.
I would definitely buy this product again (and have:) .
Mary from Undisclosed
I love this product. I was skeptical but it really does melt all your makeup including mascara and leaves your face feeling amazingly soft.
Will buy again for sure
Debra from Undisclosed
Love this Buttermilk cleansing balm. Even though I don't wear makeup a lot anymore, when I do it melts off that makeup quickly. Makes my face so smooth.
Money Well SPENT
Raceen from NY, NY
Are you looking for a deep cleanser without all the harsh elements? Meet the Buttermilk Balm— I really want to make an I can't believe it's not butter joke but I'll stop myself.
Besides the cute packaging I feel in love with the feel of the balm in my hand as I clean my face. I normally have to use a facial cleaning soap, a 2-3 makeup wipes and my chemical exfoliator to make sure my skin is truly clean of makeup and I don't have to do that since buying this! So money well spent baby
It Really Melts Your Makeup Off!!
casmith820 from Michigan
When I first tried this, my thoughts were, okay, the packaging is ADORABLE, the product was easy to get out of the container, and was much easier to put on than i was expecting. It started working as soon as i had water on my face and I didn't love that i looked like I'd been out in the rain for 6 hours, but it came off easier with a washcloth. I wasn't crazy about it leaving clumpy makeup residue in ny sink, but my skin felt wonderful afterwards!
sonshine1411 from Florida
The container with the spatula is nice, but a little wasteful with the outer plastic package and muslin bag. It technically doesn't have a scent added, but the oils give it a kind of strong, waxy smell. It does not emulsify well enough for me when water is added. It stays SUPER thick and oily, so double cleansing is a must to actually get your makeup off. If you have super dry skin, it might be ok? I'm returning.
Sun510 from Denver, Colorado
Overall a great product and does what it is supposed to do, just apply the balm with the spatula and it melts the makeup and easy to remove. I have a normal to dry skin and it does not dry out my skin .
Darling from Lynwood,California
This Buttermilk Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm has saved my skin. It's become a holy grail in my skin care routine. It works like magic melting away all that make up at the end of the day leaving you with silky smooth clean skin. The cleaning balm is super easy to use and takes off even the toughest waterproof mascara. My skin has never felt more cleaner after using this product.
Insanely Good Product
Becca from Novi
Typically I wash my face and then I use a make up remover afterwards to get any of the make up that didn't come off with my face wash. There is always residue when I use my normal face wash. One HUGE difference I noticed that is so important is there was no residue when I would use this product! It also didn't dry out my skin which is an additional plus! Super good product will definitely purchase in the future.
Natural Clean and Fresh
theillumiletty from Austin
Beekman 1802 Buttermilk Makeup Melting Balm leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and nourished. I love the all natural ingredients and how it does a great job removing all of your make up. The only draw back is you do need something to remove the balm with after applying it or it will leave a film. A warm wet washcloth works well and feels nice. I also wish it had a nice fragrance, but I understand that being all natural and clean that some things need to be sacrificed.
Kp from Atlanta
I have used other products that get my skin clean however dries it out. This really was outstanding in keeping my face moisturized as well as cleaned. My face feels so smooth and I really was not expecting that just from a make a cleanser. I definitely recommend this product andHave to friends and family and I feel it will last me a long time
it burned my eyes
Melism from Drexel Hill, pa
not anti-allergic, not suitable for removing eye makeup
SuperGirl from Menifee, Ca
I had a hard time using it. Unless I was using it wrong. The little spoon I kept losing. I would take it out on my fingers and I would try to put it on my face and chunks would fall off. But apparently once you get it in contact with water it becomes like a cream. It took all my makeup off so it worked great and it smells awesome. After I rinsed it, it felt oily but once my face dried my face felt smooth.
Love the texture
Ajd from Brooklyn
Love the texture of this. It melts as you rub it in then rinse off. I don't love that it's in this jar though because the ingredients are exposed to oxygen every time you open it. I would like to see this repackaged in a squeeze tube.
Easy to use
Nerdybirdy from Northeast
I loved how easy it was to apply and how effortlessly it removed my mascara & liquid lipstick.
Had higher hopes
Lenny from Long Island, NY
I'm so bummed to have to give less than a 5-star review because everything about this makeup remover looked, felt and smelled so luxurious at first. While it did remove my makeup, it left my skin feeling super greasy and I felt like I had to wash my face 10x after just to get the residue off. I considered buying for my mom and boss if I liked it but I think I'll have to pass.
Burning, stinging, red eyes
Jessica from Columbia SC
I had such high hopes for this. I absolutely love the brand and how dedicated they are to cruelty-free education. I love the packaging SO much. Unfortunately, the product itself is completely unusable for me. The first time I used it as a first cleanse to remove makeup, I noticed my eyes burning very intensely for about 20 minutes afterward. I tried it again tonight, followed by my usual second cleanser and again my eyes are burning SO badly. Not only that, but it doesn't help to remove eye makeup or foundation. I have to follow up the second cleanse with makeup remover, which makes this product both useless and physically painful.

melted my makeup into washable balls
I AM IN LOVE!!!!!
ShannonG from Milwaukee, WI
Beekman has done it again. Their new Buttermilk Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm is absolutely incredible. First off, the aesthetics are off the charts. It looks so sleek and gorgeous on my makeup vanity. Secondly, this really does the trick! I much prefer it to a makeup remover wipe as this seems to get the residue off of my face more and feels more luxurious. Although pricier, I highly recommend!
