Shea Moisture Green Coconut & Activated Charcoal Cleansing Balm Review

Claims
–Melt away makeup, impurities, and pollution residue
–Purifying and hydrating

Price
–$10.99 at Ulta and sheamoisture.com for 3.5 oz

Pros
–Smells good
–Removes all makeup easily
–Affordable (comparable to Clinique Cleansing Balm that is $29.50 for 3.8 oz)
–Cruelty free
–Don’t need a lot of product
–No parabens
–No phthalates
–Organic and fair trade ingredients
–10% of sales go to women-led businesses
–Removes eye makeup with no irritiation

Cons 
–Can leave an oily feel/film on the skin if used alone. I use this and follow up with a cleanser so it’s not an issue for me.
–From my research, which was not overly extensive, you can only get this at Ulta or the Shea Moisture website

Final Verdict
I’ve been a long time fan of the Clinique Cleansing Balm and one from The Body Shop, but I don’t love the price tag that come with them. This is the first affordable cleansing balm I’ve seen. It’s just as effective as the aforementioned, more affordable, and I love the mission of Shea Moisture. I love this product and I highly recommend it. I’m almost out and I may try something new this time, but I would (and may end up) repurchase this.

A quarter sized amount is all it took to remove that full face of makeup I had on. You could definitely use less, but I have a bad habit of using more than necessary. I wiped off the product with a damp wash cloth and you can see everything it removed. I then used a cotton round soaked with Micellar Water to remove any remaining makeup residue and there was none. THAT’S HOW GOOD THIS STUFF IS
