Drunk Elephant Slay ™ Makeup-Melting Butter according to the manufacturer removes all impurities from the skin, even waterproof make-up. Contains fruit extracts rich in antioxidants and oils that nourish and soothe the skin. It is used on dry skin, and by massaging it removes, ie dissolves impurities and make-up. By adding water it turns into a milky texture which is then rinsed off, leaving the skin nourished, clean and soft.
Contains a blend of blueberry, kiwi and strawberry fruit extracts and fruit oils (cranberry, acai and watermelon seeds) that soothe the skin. It also contains virgin lettuce oil, which is found in all Drunk Elephant products, and which is rich in omega 6 and 9 acids. The mixture of African oils from baobab seeds, melon kalahari, mongong and ximenia intensively nourishes and restores elasticity and radiance to the skin.

Of all the Drunk Elephant products, I liked this one the least. It has a very greasy texture, literally like butter and is very difficult to wash off. It takes an eternity for this distinctly oily texture to be removed from the skin of the face. Make-up does not remove effectively and although it is part of a double cleansing, followed by another cleansing with a water-based gel, it has only partially “dissolved” it. The scent, which is not particularly important to me because I prefer products without artificial scents, is unpleasant.

GLOW RECIPE – PAPAYA SORBET
One of the latest products launched by the company is a papaya enzyme cleansing balm called Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm. According to the manufacturer, the formula of this balm for dissolving make-up, and deep cleansing, is rich in soothing and nourishing oils, extracts and active ingredients that cleanse the pores and leave the facial skin impeccably clean.
The light, nourishing texture of this “make-up break-up” balm removes makeup, sebum, impurities and residues of the protective factor. The main ingredient of the balm is a refreshing papaya extract, a fruit rich in vitamin C that reduces dark spots on the skin and vitamin A that stimulates skin cells. A mixture of papain and papaya seed oil rich in omega-9 acids, papaya extract and blueberries full of antioxidants makes the skin clean and radiant.
Ingredients: Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Sorbitan Oleate, Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil, Polyethylene, Aqua, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Carica Papaya Seed Oil, Pentylene Glycol, Carica Papaya Fruit Extract, Papain, Vaccinium Fruitanoli Angustifoli Extract, Alkanna Tinctoria Root Extract, Capsicum Annuum Fruit Extract, Maltodextrin, Levulinic Acid, Sodium Metabisulfite.
It contains apricot kernel oil, Japanese camellia and papaya seed oil, papaya extract, papain (a natural enzyme found in papaya) that works to gently exfoliate the skin and purify it. It also contains blueberry extract, which is a powerful antioxidant, strawberry extract, which hydrates the skin, paprika extract and levulinic acid.
Massage with dry fingers into dry skin to dissolve make-up and dirt. Add water to create a gentle lather, then rinse.
The balm effectively removes make-up, even the most stubborn from the eyes. It didn’t cause me any reactions even though I have sensitive eyes. It melts easily when massaged into dry skin, removing all impurities. After rinsing, the skin is clean, hydrated and soft without feeling tight. On days when I didn’t have make-up or when cleaning my skin in the morning, it was enough for me. Ideally, after this oily texture, which is created by dissolving the make-up with balm, wash the facial skin again with a water-based gel. My recommendation is that double cleaning or so-called. you practice double cleansing as often as possible because it has significantly improved my facial skin.
The product is vegan, without PEG, parabens, mineral oils, sulfates, silicones, phthalates, alcohol, synthetic dyes and fragrances. The company does not test on animals.

In the end I can conclude that Glow Recipe balm removes make-up much more effectively than Drunk Elephant. The texture of Glow Recipe balm is not as greasy and oily as that of Drunk Elephant and is incomparably easier to wash off. These are oil-based products and are recommended for those with dry skin and those who use minimal make-up or do not apply it at all. For other skin types and for thorough cleansing, they are used as the first step in double skin cleansing, followed by a gel that will remove balm residue.
