Innisfree Melting Balm Review

I rarely review cleansing balms. This is the second cleansing balm I've tried so far. The first one is Heimish cleansing balm. I bought this at Korea: Skincare shopping in Korea

If you are unfamiliar with oil cleanser, oil cleansing, double cleansing method, you can read it, here: Skincare 101:Double Cleansing Method.

WHAT IT IS (From Innisfree website)
This cleansing balm has a paste-type formula that softly melts, transforming to a gel-type texture to remove your makeup and skin impurities thoroughly. Leaving the skin feeling fresh and moist.   

HOW TO USE (From Innisfree website)
Apply an appropriate amount onto dry hand and gently smooth over dry face to dissolve makeup. Add water onto your face and massage it with your fingertips to remove makeup. Rinse off with lukewarm water afterwards. 

Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Polyglyceryl-3 Cocoate, Trihydroxystearin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Water, Ethylhexylglycerin, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Butylene Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Acorus Calamus Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Fragrance

The packaging:

This product comes in a 50ml light blue plastic tube with a black flap cap. The design is very simple and I love this tube packaging so I don't have to scoop out the balm so it's more hygienic compared too the cleansing balms in a jar.

The colour/consistency/texture:

Pale yellow oily cream paste

The scent:
It has an herbal-ish scent which is very nice. I like it.


My thoughts on Innisfree Melting Balm
 To use this kind of cleanser, at the end of the day kalau muka dah penuh sunscreen, makeups apa semua kan. Tak perlu basuh or basahkan muka.

Apply the product on your dry hands and urut muka slow slow bagi segala makeup to melts. Make sure JANGAN BASAHKAN kulit muka. Atas kulit yang kering.

You see, makeup semua dah cair macam ni.

Lepastu, basahkan tangan and urut balik kulit muka. Bukan bilas terus tau. Basahkan tangan bagi ada air sikit sikit, then urut kulit muka. Ni nama dia kita emulsify it. Ambil air sikit sikit and larutkan kedalam cleansing balm tu supaya dia berubah jadi milky form gitu.

Ni lah proses emulsify tu. Kita tambah air sikit sikit je, bukan bilas terus. Gosok gosok secara perlahan sampai segala makeup hilang.

Lepas makeup semua dah bersih, boleh la continue dengan cleanser biasa. Ini lah nama dia double cleansing method. Cuci muka dua kali guna oil based cleanser (in this case, kita guna dalam bentuk balm) and water based cleanser yang korang biasa guna hari hari tu.

I like the packaging of this product, senang nak guna, tak payah nak scoop out macam dalam jar and senang nak bawa travel, tak perlu takut dia tumpah ke apa.

The scent is nice, the ingredient is nice but you might wanna avoid if you have fungal acne cause it contains some few ingredients that are not fungal acne safe (Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil)

However, dia buat mata I jadi pedih. If I have heavy eye makeups, I'll avoid using this and remove pakai makeup remover yang lain sebab buat mata I jadi pedih gila. The cleansing power is okay, it removes waterproof makeups easily if your makeup is not too heavy.

If your skin is okay with the ingredients, it's a decent cleansing balm for everyday use.
