I am obsessed with ELF’s Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser glamour babes. It’s been my favorite cleanser for removing eye makeup for the past month now. I didn’t think it was going be. I was searching for a gel/cleansing balm that melts away eye and face makeup just as effectively as Pixi’s Cleansing Balm ($20), but at a more affordable price. I happened to find a few jars of the ELF Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser on a whim at Marshall’s for $3.99 (orig.$10 for 1.41oz) a piece.
I bought one and put the other two on hold for safe keeps. Lol. The price was too good to leave them behind. In case you were wondering, ELF did not discontinue this cleanser. The packing needed a little face lift, that’s all.
The Hydrating Gel Melt Cleanser has a clear thick silicone/gel like texture, and is formulated with argan oil, rose extracts, seed oils, and vitamin C to easily dissolve makeup, while keeping skin hydrated and moisturized during each use.
It’s very simple product to use. Take a bit of the cleanser with dry hands, apply onto the face neck, and activate with warm water. You will soon start to see the thick silicone/gel textured cleanser breakdown into a thin milky, oil based non-foaming face wash.
It’s pretty neat. Almost like watching a cool science experiment take place. Massage all over the skin for 15 seconds, pat dry, and boom, done.
Suitable for ALL skin types.
You can also use the ELF Cleansing Duo Face Brush for a deeper cleanse. Spotted this at Marshall’s too, for $5! It’s really $14.
It does not leave any residue behind. The cleanser melts away with the rest of the debris. I love how it keeps my oily skin perfectly balanced with hydration and softness, especially around the eye area. That’s the main reason why I go after this type of makeup remover. It does not suck the moisture out of skin or eyes. The formulations can be pretty emollient. Everything comes completely off without stripping the natural oils skin produces. Plus, I enjoy that I don’t have to tug at my skin. Gentle circular motions with a dampened wash cloth works aces. Well, for me anyways. Lol.
Do you think you’ll try it? Yes, no, maybe so?
Stay beautiful, xo.
