Description

An innovative cleansing balm that melts all traces of dirt, makeup, and sunscreen from skin, removing even water-resistant formulations. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Dryness, Redness, and Dullness and Uneven Texture Formulation: Rich Oil Highlighted Ingredients:- Fruit Salad Blend: A mix of non-fragrant soothing fruit extracts (blueberry, kiwi, and strawberry) and replenishing fruit oils (cranberry seed oil, acai fruit oil, and watermelon seed oil) that help comfort and moisturize skin. - Nourishing Oil Blend: A mix of moisturizing and lightweight oils such as marula seed, baobab seed, kalahari melon seed, mongongo, and ximenia that protect and nourish skin. - Bamboo Booster: Bamboo and charcoal powder gently exfoliate away built-up dead, dry skin.

What Else You Need to Know: Formulated with clean, antioxidant-rich fruit extracts and oils to help soothe, plus a nourishing blend of African oils, Slaai™ transforms from oil to milk to cleanse and moisturize, leaving behind a dewy glow. Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin's health or support the integrity and effectiveness of our formulations. They never take into account an ingredient's synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on its biocompatibility. You won't find what they call the "Suspicious 6" in their products (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS,) making them, in their opinion, appropriate for all skin. They believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see. When formulating the products, they focus on pH levels and safety, and always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference. Drunk Elephant is a suppo

Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser uploaded by Mary M.
I really love this makeup remover. It's not your normal makeup remover because it's not the typical gel or cleanser you get with other brands. It's more like a solid oil, the texture is like KFC younwere to mix virgin coconut oil and petroleum jelly together, which I imagine if you did that the mixture would also make a great makeup remover. Best use is for removing eye makeup (especially if you use waterproof mascara!) or any other hard to remove makeup. I would definitely recommend cleansing the skin after use (as you should do anyway) and if you buy the bamboo booster with it it is a dry exfoliant you add to the slaai remover to really lift all makeup impurities off you skin. Just wonderful product like all of Drunk Elephants products, though also like all their products it is expensive, but worth it if you have the dollars to splurge on yourself. Highly recommend to those who search eyemakeup often so that you don't cause any harm to the delicate skin around your eyes and so you won't lose any lashes! Love!

This makeup removing cleanser is one of the greatest-feeling products that I have ever put on my face. The packaging comes with a little scoop/spoon that you use to grab some product and it is magnetic so it just snaps right onto the lid when you’re finished with it so that you won’t misplace it. It also comes with a container of bamboo booster which is tiny balls of bamboo to add to the cleanser if you’re looking to do some gentle exfoliation. It has a buttery texture that just melts the minute you start applying it to your face. I really love this because it removes 100% of my makeup without having to scrub even a little bit, which is great for your skin. It rinses off nicely and leaves your skin feeling moisturized, without leaving a residue. I use this at night whenever I have makeup on and sometimes I follow up with Drunk Elephant Pekee Bar or Drunk Elephant JuJu Bar just because I like to double cleanse. That’s not necessary though, just a personal preference.

I was initially skeptical of how well this would work for me, yet I was equally as eager to give it a try. Honestly, my past cleansers were history after the first use of this. I ended up purchasing the full size and made this a staple of my skincare routine. (I even turned my husband onto it). Unlike other cleansers I’ve used that seem to strip my face in the process, this nourishes the drier areas of my face. You don’t have to work much for it to melt makeup off your face, even waterproof products! I have not noticed a film that is left behind as long as it has been activated with a little water, turned to milk and followed by rinsing *well* with warm water. It gives me that smooth, clean feeling without having to make sacrifices. Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser

I have a love/hate relationship with the Drunk Elephant line.. while I love the Sukari baby facial, A-Passioni retinol and Marula facial oil, the Beste face wash and Protini moisturizer are epic fails. I purchased this with caution. I really like cleansing balms and makeup remover balms. I find this is the quickest and most efficient way to remove everything from your face without being too harsh. I picked this one up to compare to my go-to Farmacy Green Clean balm. First impressions: Price was on par with the balms from Farmacy and Clinique. I like that the packaging has the applicator on the outside and that the applicator itself was sturdy and not flimsy plastic, an upgrade compared to Farmacy. Formula: the formula felt nice on my fingers and my face and had a pleasant, light scent. Definitely suitable for sensitive skin. I noticed that the balm seemed slicker, almost greasy compared to the Farmacy Green Clean but it didn't seem to sink into my pores or be difficult to remove. My face felt clean without feeling stripped. Claims: it was not as efficient at removing makeup around my eyes. I had to go back in with more in a few spots. Overall, I liked it.. i just prefer the Farmacy Green Clean.

This cleansing balm is a game charger in makeup removal! It literally rids your skin of grime, dirt, makeup, sunscreen, everything! This buttery makeup melting cleanser is non stripping! It contains NO drying alcohols or silicones! I absolutely love this cleanser! It’s super gentle on your skin. You rub the makeup melting butter onto your face, add some water to activate and rinse! After that you are literally glowing! The Bamboo Booster is an added plus as it’s a gentle exfoliant to use a couple a times a week by just sprinkling some into your dose of this cleanser! Be sure to avoid eye areas if you do exfoliate!

Drunk Elephant Slaai makeup-melting butter cleanser + Bamboo booster Exfoliant physique This product is a balm for cleansing makeup and just for washing, thick, odorless. Has a small spoon in the kit to collect the product. When it gets into your hands is melt. It cleans the makeup perfectly, does not clog the pores, I recommend after it to use foam or gel for cleansing, as the product has an oil texture. Also included was a bamboo booster, for physical exfoliation. I do not use it every day, but overall I am happy with the effect. The skin does not injure, removes dead cells, slightly polishes the skin. The overall rating is amazing, the product exceeded my expectations. I recommend to purchase Drunk Elephant Slaai(TM) Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser

I love this for my eye makeup! I’m just not giving it 5 stars bc I feel like it’s harder to fully remove than say the farmacy balm for example and they recommend that you can use this on its own without double cleansing...maybe for super dry skin but not for me I feel like it leaves behind the tiniest bit of residue and it bothers me. I do love this brand so much though and you are getting a lot of product for your money and the ingredients are very clean and healthy for your skin. Just wash your face after if you’re prone to any sort of pore clogging

This is a great cleansing balm. I’ve tried Clinique take the day off and while this one is not as easy to get out of the jar, it feels like it’s cleaning and taking the makeup off better than Clinique. It does not leave any residue once you rinse it off. I have extremely dry skin especially during winter and this has been a lifesaver! It doesn’t dry me out all while taking off all the dirt and makeup. This hasn’t caused me to breakout which is a big thing since I have very sensitive acne prone skin! Use it day and night

I’m obsessed with Slaai. Leaves my face super clean and hydrated without breaking the bank for price. 3.88oz / $34 (my other favorite, Green Clean, is the same price but with 3.2oz) but Slaai comes with the bamboo booster, which adds little charcoal bamboo granules to make Slaai a physical exfoliator! Also, I love the magnetic spoon it comes with which makes keeping track of it so much easier. In comparison to the other cleansing balms I’ve used this one doesn’t leave a weird residue in my eyes so that’s a huge win for me. I also love that it’s vegan because for some reason most cleansing balms are not.

This is the best make up melting cleanser I’ve tried. It removes my eye make up so easily, and is never irritating on my eyes. It is a pricey product, but the quality of the container and the product make it worth it. The little spoon on the top is magnetic, and is attached to the lid. It makes storage and traveling very easy. It took me a little while how to figure out the little container, but you just mix it into the product and it becomes an exfoliator.
