If you find that cleansers do more destruction to your skin than cleaning, it’s time to consider switching over to a cleansing balm. This multi-use product not only eliminates impurities from your skin, but it also removes makeup while locking in moisture.

Cleansing balm may be intimidating at first because it doesn’t require water like your normal cleanser. Simply take a pea-sized amount and warm it up in your hands. Massage your face with it and enjoy watching that makeup melt right off. Then gently take it off with a warm damp towel.

Ready to add a new step to your skincare routine? Here are some of the top vegan cleansing balms to try.

Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm
Not only is this cleansing balm vegan, but it’s also cruelty-free, gluten-free, and comes in recyclable packaging. As you warm it up with your hands, it goes from being a solid to oil to a milky lather. While papaya extract exfoliates your pores, turmeric and moringa extract work to clear away impurities and residue leftover from things like sunscreen. Other vital ingredients include sunflower and ginger root oil that melt off that long-wear makeup.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Balm
Rated 4.8 out of 5 on their website, the comments are flooded with repeat purchasers. This rich cleansing butter removes makeup while purifying the skin. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers. The use of camomile extract means it is excellent to calm down the skin while also serving as an anti-irritant.

Clinique Take the Day Off
Clinque’s silky balm is excellent for all skin types. This is their number one selling makeup remover in a balm form. Though it’s lightweight, it still works hard to dissolve makeup and sunscreen. It also helps take care of pollution stressors.

Then I Met You Living Cleansing Balm
This cleansing balm is packed with antioxidants helping to nourish your skin while also ditching impurities. This is thanks to ingredients like grapeseed oil and olive oil. Both are full of antioxidants that have anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. Sea buckthorn oil has fatty acids and is proven to work with olive oil to restore compromised barriers. Persimmon extract brightens the skin while also helping with aging.
