These Cleansing Balms Will Change Your Skin for the Better

We're over makeup remover wipes.

Sure, they get off a majority of our makeup, but if you go in there with a cloth, you'll find that there's still tons of makeup left on that's not visible to the naked eye! This will leave your skin congested and prone to more breakouts, and that's the last thing we want to deal with.

Lately, our favorite way to remove makeup (and just cleanse our faces after a long day) is with a cleansing balm. Balms feel like butter on your skin and get the job done. After trying out tons of cleansing balms, we've narrowed it down to our absolute favorites. Keep scrolling for the cleansing balms that will change your skin—for the better.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm: $64

Rose has been a staple ingredient we've gravitated toward over the years, so it comes as no surprise that this rose cleansing balm from Elemis made the list. While it is on the more expensive side, trust us when we say it's worth every penny. It's formulated with rose, mimosa, elderberry oil and more, so prepare to be left with clean, makeup-free and super soft skin.

GoodJanes Say Goodnight Cleansing Balm: $49

GoodJanes makes one of our favorite moisturizers, so we had high hopes when we first tried their cleansing balm. And guess what? It completely lived up to our expectations! Made with shea butter, vitamin E, sunflower seed oil and more, it will rid your skin of all makeup, leaving it feeling moisturized and looking dewy.


100% Pure Blood Orange Cleansing Balm: $39 (currently on sale for $15.60!)

If you've ever tasted a blood orange, you know the hype is real. We were interested in seeing if it was as good for our skin as it is for our tummies, and it totally is. With blood orange, coconut oil and olive oil as the star ingredients, say goodbye to leftover makeup and impurities, and hello to a clean, refreshed and hydrated face.


glowoasis makeupmelt Cleansing Balm: $34

If you deal with dry or dull skin, this cleansing balm from glowoasis has your name written all over it. With a formula that targets impurities and surface oils, ingredients like vegan probiotics, prickly pear extract, moringa seed oil, neem leaf extract and false daisy all work together to keep your skin extra clean.


ITEM Beauty Slick Type Cleansing Balm: $20

If it's good enough for Addison Rae, it'definitely good enough for us. Her brand, ITEM Beauty, makes a cleansing balm that's only $20 and actually works. With ingredients including grape seed oil, rosehip oil and olive fruit oil, it will make your makeup quickly melt away and leave your skin looking and feeling replenished.
