I am a huge proponent of double cleansing – I love how using a makeup remover then using a cleanser keeps my skin from breaking out and really preps it for my skin treatment products. However…I am always up for anything that saves me time! Not only does CLOVE + HALLOW Makeup Melt promise to literally melt makeup, dirt, and oil off as effectively as double cleansing, it also promises to multitask as a balm for lots of other skin issues. Of course I had to check it out.sample
CLOVE + HALLOW’s Makeup Melt ($28, www.cloveandhallow.com) is a PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan makeup remover and cleansing balm that has a semi-hard texture that becomes an oil when it comes into contact with your body warmth. It reminds me of coconut oil, which is probably because fractionated coconut oil is the main ingredient. You use about a dime size amount, which melts into oil as you rub your hands together, then you gently rub this onto your face. It doesn’t sting eyes at all and wow – it really does remove all traces of makeup, even waterproof mascara! Just wipe it off with a wet washcloth and skin is super clean and wonderfully soft and hydrated.
Other uses for this multi-tasker include using it as a balm for scrapes and dry areas, for calming frizzy hair, and for softening cuticles. I am also impressed that CLOVE + HALLOW products are cruelty-free, vegan, and made in the USA but every product they make is formulated to stricter EU standards.
The bottom line? Makeup Melt is a fantastic PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan makeup remover AND cleanser. It’s a great way to remove your face of the day! – Lisa
