The 7 Best Cleansing Balms

Step aside, facial oils and make way for the new "It" beauty product! In this post I put together 7 of the best-selling cleansing balms that are sure to hydrate, soothe and remove every ounce of makeup that's on your skin.

Best Cleansing Balm

Sunday Riley Tranquility Cleansing Balm $50.00

Using gentle, clean-rinsing, sugar-based cleansers, Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm moisturizes with cocoa butter and mimosa flower wax while soothing with deep-blue, azulene-rich, essential oils of blue tansy and German chamomile. Vanilla and sweet orange essential oils help to relax the mind for a tranquil, spa-like experience. It rinses clean effortlessly while thoroughly removing makeup and gently purifying the skin.

Best Cleansing Balm

Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil $39.00

Based on the Korean double cleansing method, the Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil is enriched with seven Korean herbs—green tea, licorice, Japanese knotweed, skullcap, rosemary, chamomile, and centella Asiatica—that have long been used in traditional Korean beauty rituals. This formula transforms twice when used. First, it transforms into an oil upon contact with the warmth of the skin to help dissolve impurities on the face, then when rinsed with water, it transforms again into a silky lotion to cleanse skin perfectly and leave behind a protective film.
