Highlights
Editor's NotesAn award-winning cleansing balm that effectively melts all traces of dirt, makeup, sunscreen, and water-resistant formulations from skin. It contains clean, antioxidant-rich fruit extracts, and oils to soothe and a nourishing blend of African oils that transforms from oil to milk to cleanse and moisturize, leaving behind a dewy glow.
Why It's SpecialDE's Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser is probably the most luxurious makeup remover you'll ever use. Besides the fact that it can easily remove makeup without harsh rubbing (yes—even waterproof formulations), it'll also leave skin with a gorgeous dewy glow.
What Else You Need to KnowFormulated with antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and a soothing and nourishing blend of African oils, this balm cleanser transforms from an oil to a milk to cleanse and moisturize, leaving behind a dewy glow. This cleanser is free of essential oils, silicones, and fragrance. Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of their formulations. The brand focuses on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support the skin’s acid mantle. All of their products are designed to be mixed together—what Drunk Elephant calls making a smoothie. (This is true for all of their products except their sunscreen, Umbra, which sits on top of the skin, protecting it from UV damage.) The result is skin that is reset to its happiest, healthiest state. Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.

Some cleansing balms for Oily/Acne prone skin
Some cleansing balms for Oily/Acne prone skin
Here's a tower shot of some cleansing balms I have been using... I have tried some cleansing balms in the past that either broke me out or I didn't like, these are some I tried and liked : @banilacousa Clean it zero cleansing balm BANILA CO - Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original - ✨ Fragrance free ✨Removes makeup, sunscreen and other non-waterproof makeup ✨Glides easily and feels so lightweight ✨ Emulsifies so well and rinses off completely ✨ Doesn't leave a greasy film and doesn't sting/blur eyes @elemis Pro collagen cleansing balmELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm - ✨ Has strong fragrance ✨Removes makeup, sunscreen and other non-waterproof makeup ✨Glides easily and feels so lightweight ✨ Emulsifies so well and rinses off completely ✨ Doesn't leave a greasy film and doesn't sting/blur eyes @lxmiofficial Pure nilotica oil LXMI - Pure Nilotica Melt Nourishing Balm-to-Oil ( Even though this isn't sold as a cleansing balm I really like how it removes makeup and also doesn't clog pores) ✨Fragrance free ✨Texture is thick, melts into oil ✨Removes makeup and sunscreen ✨ Doesn't emulsify ✨Leaves a greasy film on skin The cleansing balms I didn't like: @drunkelephant - Slaai makeup melting butter cleanserDRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser (This has marula oil and surprisingly it broke me out.I out this to test in different scenarios but every time I used it it gave me small breakouts, so is a no for me) @ponds cold cream makeup removerPOND'S - Cold Cream Cleanser ( This is thick cold cream that is packaged and marketed to remove makeup and dirt but isn't the best experience. It's too occlusive and doesn't glide on skin easily. It also doesn't emulsify at all and leaves that crazy thick film on skin when rinsed with water. Well, it doesn't even rinse off to start with) @banilacousa Clean it Zero is my favorite so far. Works the best for Oily/Acne prone skin. I bought this value size tub on Amazon for 23$ which is truly a bang for the buck.

Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cl
Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser 🥝 I have been using this cleansing balm for a little over a month now and I am so happy to finally be sharing my thoughts! Slaai is Drunk Elephants formulated to melt down all traces of dirt, spf and makeup. I touched on the ingredients in my initial post but this is formulated with a blend of various fruit extracts and moisturizing oils leaving out essential oils, PEGs, silicones and fragrance. The balm has that typical unscented skincare scent, I have heard others compare it to playdough. I don’t mind it I can only smell it when I open the jar not when I am applying the product. The balm is very solid at room temperature so you definitely need to warm it up in your hands. You don’t need too much of the balm a little goes a long way. I gently massage Slaai into my face while it is dry it does a great job at melting down my makeup. I prefer to add warm water to rinse it off I feel like it emulsifies better than cold water (is this just me? lol) The balm turns into a milky emulsion and rinses away. I am pretty lazy and I prefer an oil/balm cleanser that emulsifies so that I don’t have to remove it with a washcloth so that step is really important to me. That being said this balm was created with a ton of nourishing oils so it does leave behind residual oils. I don’t mind this at all. At night I use this as my first cleanse so these residual oils do get washed away by my second cleanser but I do still feel like it leaves my skin really hydrated. If used in the morning I enjoy the oils Slaai leaves behind they make my skin feel really nourished and bouncy. This will not leave your skin squeaky clean but I like that about it. Slaai also comes with a Bamboo Booster, I have only used this a few times but I really like it. I find it surprisingly gentle for a physical exfoliant. I like to use this when my skin is already clean which is why I find I don’t reach for it as much since I do use the balm to take my makeup off. I have really been enjoying this cleaning balm and I definitely see myself repurchasing this in the future!

My Night Routine for Fall 🍁🤎🧡
My Night Routine for Fall 🍁🤎🧡
As the temperatures start to drop, my routine is all about protecting my moisture barrier, (especially seeing my skin was destroyed last winter!) This will probably be similar to my winter night routine as well! 1. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser I’ll do an individual post about this, but this was a sample and I’m not feeling it. It doesn’t emulsify well, which causes it’s removal of makeup to be horrible. I have to really rub my eye makeup off with this. Prefer the Pharmacy balm which I’ll switch back to. 2. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser My holy grail cleanser! Cleanses my skin perfectly without stripping it! Perfect drugstore cleanser for dry skin. 3. HADALABO - Gokujyun Premium Lotion Perfect essence with multiple forms of hyaluronic acid that hydrates my skin and keep it soft. I apply it to my damp skin (immediately after cleansing) and tap it in. 4. THE inkey LIST - Squalane Oil Adding a squalane oil to my skin has been a LIFESAVER in protecting against dryness. My only complaint with this Inkey List squalane oil is how friggin small the bottle is! 5. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum My absolute favorite chemical exfoliator ever! Literally zaps my breakouts, fine lines, and dry spots overnight! I use it 3x a week and as a spot treatment. 6.DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream There is no such thing as a moisturizer that is “too heavy” for me when it’s cold. This is an incredibly rich, creamy moisturizer. 7. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I added this oil for added moisturizer and for its benefits in reducing hyperpigmentation. I’m starting to see a slight notice in decreased hyperpigmentation and it definitely keeps my skin soft! Im surprised people complain of the smell! I love it! Let me know your thoughts about my routine! My daytime routine coming soon! ✨

Drunk Elephant Slaai Is Amazing!
Drunk Elephant Slaai Is Amazing!
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser begins like the mini in the back: solid, smooth, like a freshly-opened container of butter. Then, you scoop some out, and as you use it you slowly soften it further and further. The texture is like butter in that the solid balm melts to a viscous oil as the warmth from your hands encourages all those oils to liquify. But texture is where the similarities to butter end. With five HG African seed oils and three fruit seed oils: no animal fats here! Cranberry, açaí, watermelon, baobab, kalahari melon, mongongo, ximenia, and -of course- marula oils all nourish your skin as you’re gently rubbing this balm into your skin, penetrating through layers of oil, makeup, and grime without the help do surfactants. It makes it such a gentle cleanser! I imagine some of the African oils are from fruit seeds, but Drunk Elephant separates them in the product description so I shall as well 🍉🍈 This is the only balm cleanser I’ll use, as it’s the only one that doesn’t leave a palpable residue on my cheeks. It doesn’t make me oily, an achievement for such a nourishing blend! This balm is very gentle, not even irritating my eyes whenever it gets into them from overly-enthusiastic mascara removal, and doesn’t leave a film over my eyes. It soothes any angry blemishes very nicely, thanks to the added moisture and lack of surfactants that might irritate the already-inflamed skin. Overall? My HG cleansing balm 🙌🏽

Slaai or Green Clean - what’s the better balm?
Slaai or Green Clean - what’s the better balm?
Hey friends! This post is a head-to-head comparison of two lovely cleansing balms. I’ll choose a clear winner below, but I want to hit on the most important aspects of a cleansing balm and why I like one more than the other. Keep in mind I have sensitive, dry combination skin! Both of these products are marketed to all skin types. The products are: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm Price: Farmacy Green Clean: $34 for 3.4 Oz (pictured here is the limited edition jumbo size) Drunk Elephant Slaai: $35 for 3.88oz, plus a tube of exfoliating bamboo and charcoal powder (pictured here is the midi size) Scooper: Farmacy: comes with a scooper that does not affix to the tub or fit inside the lid of the tub. DE: comes with a magnetic scooper that affixes to the top of the tub. Scent: Farmacy: smells like animal crackers or lime sherbet DE: has no smell; maybe a medicinal scent if anything Formula: Farmacy: uses sunflower + ginger root oils DE: uses virgin marula oil Ease of application: Farmacy: takes less effort to melt into an oil DE: takes a little extra TLC to completely melt When adding water: Farmacy: turns into a visible milky cleanser and washes off easily—skin feels tight afterwards DE: turns into a clear milky cleanser and leaves a light residue on the skin—feels nourishing and ready for the second cleanse Cons: Farmacy: burns my eyes, gives me blurry vision DE: no cons Overall thoughts: So I purchased the jumbo green clean WITHOUT testing it first (bc I’m a DUMMY) and I regret not buying a full size Slaai. While the Farmacy Green Clean is nice and does a good job removing SPF and makeup, I can’t use it on eye makeup or around my eye area because it burns the absolute heck out of my eyeballs. The Drunk Elephant Slaai is all around a great first cleanse step and preps the skin for the second cleanse without stripping it. If I had to recommend one over the other it would be Slaai 100%. Have you used either of these cleansers? What are your thoughts?

Cleansing Balm: Drunk Elephant OR Farmacy ?
Cleansing Balm: Drunk Elephant OR Farmacy ?
I have tried two popular cleansing balm and now want to share my feeling about them to you guys. One is Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm, and the other is Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup Melting Butter. Package: Drunk Elephant 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Farmacy🌟🌟🌟 Although Drunk Elephant's packaging is a little bit heavier, it provides a small spoon stuck by a magnitude, which makes it way more convenient to use. Texture: Farmacy 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Drunk Elephant 🌟🌟🌟 Farmacy's is more blendable and more natural to melt-down in hands or face, While it may take a while for Drunk elephant. I also need to notice that DE one would be a little bit difficult to clean off thoroughly. So if you are acne-skin type, farmacy is better for you. Cleaning power: Both are great! I would call it an even since both can clean heavy makeup, even mascara! Scent: Farmacy 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Drunk Elephant 🌟 Farmacy definitely smells better. It is not a strong but lightweight, good scent. But the Drunk Elephant's smell is a little too irritating for me. Some people argue that this is because DE is more eco-friendly, and the product is without artificial flavor. But sincerely, I wouldn't say I like the smell. Other: Drunk Elephant gives an extra hydrating feeling. I would give it some extra points for that. In all, personally, I prefer Farmacy. The experience is nice when using Farmacy's cleansing balm. But if you don't mind the smell and really care whether the product is eco-friendly, go with Drunk Elephant!
