Drunk Elephant Slaai Cleansing Balm

Friday, April 3, 2020

So, I originally wrote this post at the beginning of the year with a promise to get women to stop using makeup wipes. Well, it's March and I'm still working on it...maybe on pause at the moment since all of the world isn't allowed to leave their houses. They're still cloth demons that push around makeup, dirt and oil on your skin and further into your pores. They're also still very wasteful because they're being thrown away every day. Someone I know asked me, "Then what's a good wipe for my skin?" To which I replied, "None of them."

Enter the cleansing balm. It'll take the place of those pesky wipes in a heartbeat and your skin will worship you the minute you switch. The one I'm almost finished with is the Drunk Elephant Slaai Cleansing Balm.

This balm was definitely a request from DE's customers and loyal followers. The skincare market needed another cleansing balm too, in my opinion. This one is more on the hydrating side because it's so rich in oils like sweet almond, watermelon, and cranberry. There's also a "fruit salad" blend of extracts thrown in per Sephora's website.

I didn't like this balm at first because I thought it was too hydrating and left a film on my face, especially because I don't have dry skin. But Slaai grew on me once I lessened how much I was using and made sure to really wash it all off. It's a great makeup remover and a little goes a long way.

My only gripe? Slaai is so rich in oils that they started to pool at the bottom of the container, causing an imbalance inside. So, I turned it over to keep everything distributed!

Also the "bamboo booster?" Not needed. It belongs in the garbage unless you enjoy rubbing small bits of gravel into your skin.
