Review: Eve Lom Gel Balm Cleanser

By Beautifulbuns

I may be a Kbeauty fanatic but it doesn’t mean I’m not open to trying brands from all around the world – especially if they’re from cult beauty brands such as Eve Lom.

This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. It is good for all skin types—normal, oily, combination, and dry—and is safe for sensitive skin.

I say…

The Texture: A relatively thick gel that spreads easily on the skin without pulling on it.

The Scent: A plethora of herbal scents will emanate from the product – I smell eucalyptus and chamomile among others. It’s definitely different from the usual other floral/citrus/powdery scents. This feels very spa-like. The scent also lingers for a while after you’ve cleansed your skin.

The Application: It applies like a thick gel, and then sort of emulsifies when massaged into damp skin – there’s not a lot of froth nor lather, so it’s more of a massaging balm cleanser.

The Verdict: I love the scent, which conjures up good spa memories. The texture is great too – comfortably coating your skin during the massaging. The cleansing efficacy itself is a slightly different story. Yes it’s definitely very hydrating and soothing – the skin indeed feels much softer and more moisturised after each session. However, I do note that this is more of a lightweight cleanser – even when used as a double cleanser (after an oil makeup remover), I find that the skin isn’t 100% clean. This would be more suitable for days when you have light, or preferably no makeup,  or for ladies with dry skin types, or if you’re going to a country with a dry climate.

Price & Availability: SGD$105, Sephora online and instores.
