Drunk Elephant Cleansing Balm…Worth Trying?
Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser is the newest drunk elephant product to be released. It's a cleansing balm with a base extremely similar to the famous Clinique Take The Day Off Balm. It contains 🥝kiwi, and 🍓strawberry extracts which are nice but in my point of view is just for marketing.
💰Price - Retailing for 42 Canadian dollars (110 g/3.88 oz),
🎍Star Ingredient - this balm comes with what they call Bamboo Booster, which is basically made out of Tabashee (silica) and charcoal powder. DE suggests to use the booster with Slaai once or twice a week, during the morning, to exfoliate the skin.
📦Packaging - The spatula has a magnet on the bottom, which sticks to the product's lid. Very Convenient
👃Scent - no essential oil or fragrance have been added to this product, resulting in a weird scent according to some people that I questioned. The scent is not too bad and is barely there. I love a good aromatherapy when cleansing my face, which this cleanser couldn't provide, but I guess that's alright.
👌Usage - Only a little bit of balm is needed per application. It melts nicely, gives a nice sensorial, emulsifies well, and leaves a little bit of residue which is OK since I always follow with another cleanser.
I'm not sure how it performs removing mascara and/or eyeliner, but it does remove sunscreen and foundation nicely.
😄Overall, it's a good cleansing balm. It has nothing much especial about it (other than the Silica Booster) but it's basically the same price as other cleansing balms found in Sephora, so why not?
