Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser Review
Like with all Eve Lom products, the sleek, white glass packaging was what stood out to me - but how does the cleanser perform?
Shea butter (emollient), grape seed oil (this is an oil-based cleanser for makeup removal), enzyme blend (sebum removal). This has clove and herbal oils for a very garden-like scent.
An Oily Experience
I cleanse makeup at the end of the day and used this as my makeup-removing step. The best way to describe the texture is as an “oil gel.” It’s not a sherbet like a balm, and it’s thicker than a serum. Because of this, it can cut through thicker layers of makeup. Unfortunately, this also leaves a filmy feeling after washing with water - I have to wash with another cleanser in order to feel clean.
This cleanser is a splurge. The full-size retails for $60 for 100 mL, and the mini is $18 for 30 mL at Sephora.
Because of the oily-after feel and the high price point, this is a skip for me.
I received this product free to test.
