Most Helpful Positive Review Nourishing and Effective Cleanser
I'm on my second bottle of this product and I'm very pleased with the results. It is gentle and moisturizing while effectively removing my waterproof makeup. I recommend to use micellar water to remove eye makeup to avoid blurry eyes from rubbing oils close to the eye.
I appreciate how it is formulated for dry cleansing. It feels nourishing when applied to the skin and works well when lathered with a gentle silicone exfoliant scrubber. My skin feels soft, clean and moisturized after using. I haven't had any problems with rinsing, though I only use a dime sized amount which spreads nicely throughout application.
I have oily combo skin and this product gives a great balance to the moisture on my skin. I look forward to using it every day and I can see the difference from using it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Probably the worst balm I've used
I was excited to try this. I have tried a few products from Indeed Labs and like them. I am also a huge lover of cleansing balms. So I thought this would be a hit. I was wrong. The formula is super thick. I didn't mind that. When I applied this to my face, I had foundation, blush, and mascara. The mascara I was wearing has broke up very easily with all of my other favorite cleansing balms and oils. Not the case with this balm. I rubbed it in and immediately noticed a few large granules, about the size of course rock salt. Needless to say I didn't care for that scraping across my face. And then I noticed that the formula started to burn my eyes. That's a huge no for me, as well. So then I went to wash it off. I stood under the shower and rubbed the water onto my face. The balm did not break up. It felt like I had petroleum coating my face. It wasn't coming off. I used an exfoliating cleanser since I didn't think it would come off with a regular face wash. I was correct. The balm stuck to my face like glue and it didn't fully remove even after a scrub. I had to go in twice with a scrub. I would recommend to avoid this product.

Great as a first step in a double cleanse. This works so well to rub into a full face of makeup (including waterproof mascara) and then add a touch of water to really break down the makeup. I rinse well and follow with a water-based cleanser as my second step in the double cleanse. This works beautifully with both foaming and cream cleansers. It's also fragrance free, which I didn't expect from the name "Watermelon Melting Balm." I don't have an aversion to fragrance, but some people do, so hopefully that's helpful to someone.
Thick, doesn't spread, odd smell
Katy from FLA
The formula is so thick that it's hard to rub on or wipe off your face without scrubbing too hard and the smell is really odd. I use it at night to take the day off but I don't wear anything other than normal moisturizer and SPF - so maybe folks who wear makeup or have more to "take off" would be better suited for the product. The formula also feels very grainy and heavy so my face has an oily feel until I rinse very well or go in with a toner.

I received this complimentary in a voxbox and I am not really a fan of this product. I personally just do not like the concept of this product but its just personal preference. It cleanses your skin and leaves it feeling soft though

Have to be honest, Ive used better cleaning balms but at a more expensive price tag. Just need to use more product then recommended and works just fine!
kaller from undisclosed
This is a great product from a nice line of products. I enjoy the watermelon smell and the texture. This product was also easy on my skin because I did not break out after using it. I recommend using this!
Breaks down makeup, but doesn't rinse well.
cassidye5 from undisclosed
This product would work as a makeup remover balm, but I would need to follow it up with another cleanser. According to the instructions I shouldnt need to cleanse afterwards, but I find this product leaves a greasy-feeling residue on my skin. I tried wiping it off with a warm wash cloth, but it just felt like I was wiping it around. It might work better for someone with dry skin, but it did not work for me with my oily/combo skin. It did not irritate my skin though, has good ingredients from what I know, and does not have any added fragrance or dyes.
not a fan
christinaw9 from undisclosed
I was not a fan of this product. The smell was fine and I was excited by the ingredient list. The product was entirely too thick for me and my skin broke out horribly using this product. It just did not work for my skin.
niiiccoleee_ from undisclosed
Although its super thick I did enjoy this cleanser. It smelt nice and had a good result. Left my face feeling smooth & clean.
great for dry/sensitive skin
lokyeelam from undisclosed
I really loved this product because it helps remove the toughest of makeup and is a very moisturizing formula. It is gentle on the skin with a light exfoliant that is great for dry or sensitive skin. It leaves the skin feeling a little oily but definitely smoother than before use. I currently have combination skin that is a bit on the oily side so its not great for my skin and for combatting acne. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a cleanser that doubles as a makeup remover and is gentle on the skin. However I wouldnt recommend it for oily or acne prone skin.
efficient cleansing balm
azlahdya from undisclosed
I haven really been wearing makeup so I havent gotten the chance to really test out the cleansing balm on primer and makeup but it has done a nice job removing sunscreen and daytime serums. I liked this product but Im not sure how useful it is in my current routine since I enjoy gentle cleansers with water.
skeptical at first-but ended up loving!
alexisnicolemoody from undisclosed
I was really skeptical at first that the balm would be oily and gross feeling on my face. I am a big texture person, and I was worried about that. It felt nice, and got off all of my makeup I caked on that day, and smelled wonderful.
jessicave49e from undisclosed
Took me a while to get used to applying on dry skin. The scent is pretty strong but not too much. Felt very smooth, balm like when massaging into the skin to cleanse. Easy to wash off. My skin felt nice and soft after.
Perfect for Dry Skin!
torieswain from undisclosed
I was introduced to Indeed Labs Watermelon Melting Balm via Influenster. It truly is a "balmy" product. The texture certainly feels like something you may put on your lips. I felt that as an individual that has pretty balanced skin, I would recommend it more so for someone that has dry skin. At some points I felt like it left my personal skin too dewy. I can attest to its effectiveness. It kept my skin cleansed and hydrated throughout the summer.
smells delicious and it's effective!
amberh139 from undisclosed
I just love this cleansing balm. I usually use a cleansing oil but I feel like a balm works better for me. Theres something about the way this product melts into my skin that just makes my makeup wipe off easily. I love the ingredients to this product and I love that its not heavily scented. Although this product is very effective, I feel that the packaging is a nuisance. If its too hot where I live I open the lid to be greeted by a mess. I would like this product even more if it was in a pot and not a tube.
Works really REALLY well!!
amandat102 from undisclosed
I really loved using this watermelon melting balm. I wear waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and this product was able to remove it super easily. Plus I feel like the price is pretty reasonable compared to alot of other makeup removing balms out there!
removes make up!!
gabis3 from undisclosed
This works great to get all your make up off and is a great replacement for make up wipes if youre looking for something different. It helps for hydrating the skin when removing the make up as well. I dont however feel like it really does anything to clean my face so if I want to actually wash my face after I take my make up off I have to go in with another product.
thick but so moisturizing
laurencfb35 from undisclosed
Ill be honest, this cleanser is THICCCKKK. As in it feels like youre putting Vaseline on your skin. Definitely doesnt seem like its going to clean your skin. But then, you add water, and it magically foams, and rinses away well, leaving skin feeling plump, moisturized, and clean. Once I got over the initial texture, I fell in love with this cleanser. Its really great. Doesnt really smell and seems very gentle on skin
gentle cleanser for sensitive skin
casuallychristin from undisclosed
I really enjoyed this cleanser. It smelt really nice and it did a good job of removing my makeup. It was super gentle which is something I always look for in a cleanser. I would definitely recommend
Fresh as a daisy
msrehreh from undisclosed
I really loved the way my skin looked radiant and smooth after using the melting balm. I am always careful about applying any form of cleanser near my eyes, so it didn't really bother me there. There is a teeny bit of an oily feeling to it when applied, but again not enough to where I wouldn't use it! It's easy to use and gentle on my skin.
I loved it!
glambypao from undisclosed
Loved this product. It melted all my makeup away even the harsh eyeliner and mascara thats sometimes hard to take off. It left my skin feeling soft! It is definitely very effective. I use it everyday to take off my makeup!
great results, chemical smell a bit
emc1327 from undisclosed
I absolutely loved using this as a part of my shower routine. It cleaned my makeup off better than any makeup remover or wipe has so far and left my skin feeling smooth and fresh. It has a bit of a chemical scent which I am not a giant fan of but its not overpowering so I can get over it at least.
katyleighbuchanan from undisclosed
I liked the texture of this at first and it got off most of my makeup; however, the smell leaves much to be desired, and it separated in the tube within a couple weeks. not a terrible option, but wouldn't choose this again
Ideal for Double Cleansing
erikaaagus from undisclosed
I love the formula and scent of this product. It works really well to dissolve all of your makeup. For me personally, I prefer to use the balm followed by a gel cleanser to remove any trace of oily residue. But if you have dry skin or prefer to have a really dewy complexion, then you will probably love this cleansing balm.
MELT YOUR MAKEUP RIGHT OFF
keyarar from undisclosed
I loved this melting balm. I usually use makeup wipes due to convenience and speed, but this melting balm worked pretty well. It doesnt leave your skin feeling oily and it breaks down the makeup quickly!!
great watermelon balm!
bellas57 from undisclosed
This indeed watermelon balm did a great job taking my makeup off! I love the fact that it has no harsh chemicals in it and is still able to get the job done!
