Eve Lom Balm Cleanser- Christmas edition Review

November 21, 2017



Described by Vogue as ‘probably the best cleanser in the world’, the Eve Lom Cleanser had a lot to live up to when I finally got my hands on it. I wanted something oil based to remove my makeup, which doesn't irritate my acne prone, sensitive skin. Based on recommendation of the sales person at the Space NK, who swore by it, I purchased this Christmas especial pack to include this in my Christmas gift guide. 



What It says:

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.


What It does:

Deep cleanses without drying or stripping the skin and removes even the most stubborn of waterproof make-up 
Thorough cleansing and gentle exfoliation enables skin cells to regenerate quickly and provides a receptive base for beauty products to work at their best 
De-congests, and with the signature massage technique helps drain toxins 
Exfoliates, tones and improves circulation when combined with the Muslin Cloth 
Softens and conditions the skin 
Visible benefits for all skin types

How to use:

Once a day, at night for normal/dry skin types. Twice a day, morning and night for congested skins.

Massage a small amount onto the face and neck onto dry skin over the grime and make-up from the day.

Fill the basin with hot water and immerse the Muslin Cloth. Squeeze off excess water and hold the cloth over the face and neck for a few seconds. The heat will soften the skin and open the pores allowing the aromatic oils to cleanse the skin of impurities.

Fold the hot, rinsed cloth into a square and work it in small circular movements across the face and neck to remove all traces of Cleanser and make-up. The Muslin Cloth will gently exfoliate the skin surface and encourage healthy blood circulation, leave the skin feeling exceptionally smooth.

Finally rinse the cloth in cool water and hold over the face and neck. This helps close the pores, giving the skin a more even, toned appearance. It also leaves the skin feeling fresh and ultra clean.

What I think:


I'm new to this product having bought it on reputation alone. I only use this product on days when I wear makeup, which is maybe 1-3 times a week. Undoubtedly the best cleanser I have ever used. It seems to dissolve make-up in seconds and leaves skin feeling fresh and thoroughly clean without drying it. It calmed my sensitive skin and left it radiantly healthy looking. What used to be a chore before bedtime has now become a pleasant task. I sort of wish I used it every day, but the price keeps me in check. The muslin cloth adds a bit of luxury when I want to pamper myself with a bit of a steam.

The texture of this balm is very thick and almost grainy when you first get it out of the pot. But as soon as it starts to warm up on your hands it melts into a wonderfully smooth balm.
The fragrance of the cleanser is divine to me, as it heats up from your fingers you can really smell the scent of the aromatic plant oils. Some of you may not like the smell of cloves oil and other plant oils but since I am a sucker of essential oils I love the smell. 

We have to agree with Vogue on this one. This cleansing balm is simply fantastic. It’s a little more than some may want to spend, but it’s worth every single penny. What is your favourite cleanser?
