Think cleansing oils are too messy? Then cleansing balms are what you need! These balms/jelly/cleansers remove all traces of makeup in a flash, leave skin glowing and even work beautifully on oily skin! You know oil attracts oil, right? Using an oil cleanser is a sneaky way to battle oily skin.
Plus, you can leave some of them on as a treatment mask for an extra boost of hydration and glow. My go-to balms are below! Which is your favorite?
Pixi By Petra Nourishing Cleansing Balm removes makeup with shea butter, almond oil and vitamin E. This balm has a texture similar to tapioca upon first glance, but it quickly melts into the skin, breaking up makeup on contact, even the really tough stuff. $20.00
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-1 Makeup Melting Balm can double as a skincare treatment as well as removing makeup in a snap. This balm has more of a whipped texture that melts on contact. Makeup is gone in the blink of an eye; wipe it off and leave little behind. The Skin-Softening Serum Concentrate™ treats skin like a serum, leaving skin oh-so-soft. $38.00
Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil is super smooth, infused with seven Korean herbs (green tea, licorice, Japanese knotweed, skullcap, rosemary, chamomile, and centella Asiatica). Waterproof mascara is no match for this cleanser. Once you've washed it off, make sure to leave a tiny bit behind to do double duty as a skincare treatment! $39.00
