EVE LOM Gel Balm Cleanser: Review

How I love a good gel balm cleanser. These oil based balms can remove most makeup with ease while still remaining light enough to rinse clean with water. I’m hugely addicted to cleansing gel balms. EVE LOM recently released the Gel Balm Cleanser which is the lightest version of her cleansers. Details per EVE LOM:

EVE LOM GEL BALM CLEANSER delivers the ultimate cleanse that EVE LOM is famed for in an easy to use gel balm texture. As the GEL BALM CLEANSER is massaged into wet skin, it gently transforms into a milky balm texture that leaves skin soothed and blissfully soft.

Unlike traditional gel cleansers that leave skin feeling tight and dry, the EVE LOM GEL BALM CLEANSER is fortified with moisturising SHEA BUTTER and nourishing GRAPESEED OIL and is clinically proven to moisturise skin for up to 12 hours after use.

The hybrid gel-to-balm formula is enriched with our iconic signature blend of CLOVE, EUCALYPTUS, HOPS AND CHAMOMILE OIL which are proven to dissolve impurities and all traces of makeup, including waterproof mascara. When combined with the SHEA BUTTER base, a lightweight botanical aroma is created.


Quick and soothing cleanse that gently removes makeup, including waterproof makeup, and impurities without stripping skin’s moisture. Expertly balanced for all skin types, the Gel Balm Cleanser helps to deliver clearer, softer, brighter skin with each use. Provides the perfect base to allow for serums, moisturisers and other skincare treatments to work at their best.

Active Ingredients

• SHEA BUTTER – seals in moisture for long lasting hydration
• GRAPESEED OIL – moisturises and quickly absorbs
• PLANT DERIVED LECITHIN – contains fatty acids to condition the skin and support the skin’s barrier function
• UNIQUE ENZYME BLEND – gently and effectively dissolves makeup and impurities without stripping skins moisture
• BOTANICAL SPENT GRAIN WAX, ARGAN & OLIVE OIL – instantly soothes and nourishes the complexion for flawless skin


Pump once or twice into the palm of the hand. Massage gently into wet skin and rinse well with lukewarm water. No Muslin Cloth required.

I love the pump style on this package, it’s unique. Very modern and chic. This looks great on any bathroom counter. I love to massage an oil based cleanser such as this onto dry skin then it emulsifies and rinses clean with water. No need for a cloth, and no oily residue left behind. You can rub this into wet skin as well. I think it’s personal preference for what you prefer. You’re most likely going to rub this onto dry skin if you use it as a morning or first night cleanse. If you use this as a second cleanse rubbing it onto wet skin makes sense.

This leaves my skin baby soft and is perfect as a morning cleanse, second cleanse or even first cleanse at night. It depends what you like in a cleanser for which way you end up using this. I like this as a morning cleanse the most. This is very similar in texture and cleansing abilities to OSKIA Renaissance Cleanser if you’re familiar with that one. I love that this cleanser is light, as her other cleansers are just a bit too heavy for my preference.

The texture is a thick gel balm with an oil base. It has this light pearly green slightly yellow color. It smells like citrus and clove. An odd combination. Either you’re going to love it or hate it. It’s got the same scent the Original and Morning Time Cleanser have. It’s not my favorite scent. I like the clove, it’s the combination with citrus and hops that gets me. The scent doesn’t bother me enough to not be able to use it, it’s an amazing cleanser. However, the scent does make me think twice about whether or not I should buy a second tube.

This gel balm removes makeup, as oil removes oil, softens the skin and hydrates in one easy step. This is perfect for not stripping your skin while cleansing. This is the lightest of the EVE LOM cleansers, and the best. EVE LOM cleanser has a cult following and this Gel Balm Cleanser will easily be a new favorite for any EVE LOM fan.
