Do you know what’s the most tiring task to do after a busy day @ work and back home…It’s undoubtedly the makeup removal. While there are endless makeup remover products in the market. Only a handful suits the sensitive skin. I am a person who wear makeup almost everyday. Removing eye makeup is the most difficult part according to me..
After a busy day and finishing my daily chores. It find it really difficult to soak cotton pads in those makeup removers including micellar waters. I need atleast 6 cotton pads soaked in makeup remover for getting rid of that yucky makeup.. and more q tips dipped in micellar water to get rid of that clumps of mascara that my cotton pad failed to catch..
Well, if this sound like you… Don’t worry, Here- In this post I am going to talk about a product that can be all time favorite. I tried and tested it for different kinds of makeup including liquid, cream & cake makeup, waterproof mascara , long lasting liquid lip colors & other matte lipsticks etc..
Put your hands together for this wonderful product – trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm. not only this serves as a best makeup remover balm- It also is an excellent product for facial massage after a stressful day at work.
Melt away make-up for clean, supple, hydrated skin with mango butter, rosehip oil, coconut oil.
A lush, end-of-the-day cleansing balm to remove foundation, mascara and lipstick like nothing else, even long-wear and waterproof formulations. Packaged with its own sustainably produced, unbleached, organic cotton cloth, this new way to cleanse is the perfect night-time ritual to melt away make-up and nourish your skin.
Combining a rich blend of pure plant oils, the luxurious balm melts on contact with warm skin, dissolving impurities and leaving your face perfectly cleansed, supple and silky-smooth.
Packaging & Price – Comes in this glass jar with a turkish organic cotton towel. I use a spatula to scoop the product.

Directions to use
Scoop ¼ teaspoon onto fingertips and massage on to dry skin. As the balm melts, concentrate around eyelashes and areas where of heavy make-up. Rinse the organic cloth with warm water, wring and gently wipe over the entire face.
Using oil is the most effective and gentle way to remove all the makeup without stripping your face’s natural oils.
Now, most of the time, I am not patient enough to mix and match different oils and use it for makeup removal. There comes this fabulous product as a skin savior.
How I use it –
I use a spatula to scoop some of the cleansing balm and apply to my skin. I give a nice massage to gently melt the balm, in circular motions I massage it on areas like eyes, eye lashes, brows, and the rest of my face. basically, applying balm all over my facial area.
1)Initially – You feel a lovely natural fragrance blend of ylang ylang and other essential oils, very pleasant smell upon application. When I initially applied I felt I am applying a balm and making my face greasy – I even thought – OMG – Am I going to complicate this makeup removal process…
2)Here comes the magic part – After I rinsed the organic cloth in warm water, wring and gently wipe the entire face , again wring and wipe until I didn’t see any makeup residue on the cloth.
3)I used a normal facial cleanser (trilogy balancing gel cleanser) to give my face a final deep clean and wipe with the same cloth. I see my face very very clean without any trace of makeup including mascara. All makeup was gone in a glance and you can see your fresh skin..About 5-6 minutes – max – I finish my makeup removal. I finished off by spraying the trilogy hydrating mist toner on my face and applied my trilogy rosapene night cream
Overall, the most awesome things about this Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm is that
- Removes even the stubborn eye makeup, liquid/cream concealer (Dermablend, kryolan, MAC – tried and tested)
- Smells awesome & feels really great on skin ; Massaging with this balm itself feels like you are in some SPA
- Leaves no oil residue post wash.
