      Pro Tip: Massage the formula onto dry skin with dry hands for up to 30 seconds. Add water to emulsify and massage it again for up to 30 seconds for the most effective makeup removal.

    Glow Recipe - Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm

    Glow Recipe Papaya Sorbet Enzyme Cleansing Balm Reviews

    Great cleanser for colder days
    Love this. Not an emulsifying balm so a little more work to remove with a warm flannel but it’s been a fantastic cleanser for transitioning my skin from summer to fall. Despite my skin being on the oiler side, the cold weather and consequent central heating has me reaching for any products to introduce moisture and take away that tight feeling. This leaves my skin feeling nourished, spotlessly clean and it smells fantastic! Definitely deserving of a space in my regular rotation.
    *joins my cleansing balm shelfie*
    I love trying out new cleansing balms and it's not often that I buy one balm on repeat... but this one made the cut (I have another waiting on standby!). The texture is gorgeous and oh-so pleasing, the subtle scent is a joy that doesn't irritate my eyes - like others have. Whenever I use this I feel like I'm really treating myself and my skin. It's a lovely self-care moment and after rinsing, my VOTARY Face Cloths always come up clean so I'm 100% this removes every speck of my make up - as it should!
    Papaya sorbet enzyme
    Doesn’t emulsify makeup so easily especially eye make up...
    Lovely
    Normally use Sunday Riley Blue Moon but felt like a change as is quite expensive, but this is lovely, Blue Moon never really got all my eye make up off but this does, work best with warm water and Muslin cloth obviously but smells lovely and is well priced. Will re-purchase for sure.
    Don’t believe the hype
    I usually never write reviews however I almost feel an obligation to do so regarding this product as I fear this for many will be their first try with a cleansing balm - and it really shouldn’t be! I really wanted to love this product as I do many of glow recipes other products, but unfortunately this wasn’t the case. This balm does not remove makeup nearly as well as other cleansing balms but the worst thing about this product is that it does not emulsify (turn into a milky texture upon contact with water) this balm simply sits on the face - it’s sticky and very hard to remove and clogs the pores. Cleansing balms in general are fantastic and double cleansing has really made a difference for my skin - so if you are thinking about trying out a cleansing balm as a first step I recommend that you do, but I also recommend you try another product than this. Personally I swear by “All Clean” by Heimish.
    Was OK
    Nice scent, but it didn’t really take all of the makeup off!
    Nice but not nice enough...
    Was so excited to try this.. quality packaging, nice scent and feels lovely to put on but itleaves a film on my face and I HAVE to second cleanse after.. only using when wear makeup. Won't repurchase unfortunately.
    Lovely product
    Really beautiful scent, light texture which removes all of my makeup. The only issue is it’s difficult to rinse off and can leave a slimy film on the face. Works well as a 2 step cleanse. I’d buy again
    Obsessed
    I don't usually use cleansing balm for makeup remover since they can be a bit drying, but this product works perfectly. It removed a lot of makeup without leaving a residue, and it left my skin feeling nice and firm, not too dry (I have dry skin so usually post-cleanser, my skin would be super dry, but of course always follow with another cleanser). It also smells amazing and not overwhelming. Would recommend to anyone as a first cleansing balm!
    Super impressed
    I have spent such a great amount of time and money searching for a good cleansing balm - think I've finally found 'the one'! The jar itself feels heavy and luxurious, the product has a slight (not overpowering) scent, which I enjoy. It removes makeup without making my skin feel dry, doesn't make my eyes sting...I actually look forward to removing my makeup at night! Will absolutely purchase again. And again!
    Perfect for double cleanse
    I bought this as my first balm cleanser to double cleanse, I usually use a micellar water but this product is perfect, it melts all my makeup including eye makeup and emulsifies and washes off perfectly. It's perfect for a double cleanse and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
    Best balm cleanser so far
    I bought this to replace another cleansing balm I had which I suspected was irritating my skin but after a week of using this my skin is so smooth and soft. I only use this at night to take off spf and makeup and paired with their sweet chef serum shots my skin has never looked better! The packaging is glass and it so heavy it feels like £30 well spent. It is only 100ml however which is less than my previous cleanser but is worth every penny. Will repurchase!
    My skin is so soft
    This is the best balm I’ve ever used. Melts make up away in seconds - especially surprised with how fast my waterproof mascara came off (eyeko yoga - I usually end up with the stuff left on for days because nothing will budge it)! My skin the next day was so soft and glowy. Feels lovely going on, smells really soft, it’s not overpowering at all, you don’t need a crazy amount and it melts really easily. I use it with my foreo and it’s just really brightened my skin up!! I’ll absolutely be buying it again.
    Almost perfect.
    I've been wanting to try Glow Recipe for a while, and caved and bought this on the day of release as I love cleansing balms. I do like this one - the texture is nice and melts quickly and easily. It really is very good and gentle for eyes as they claim and removes SPF well. For me, it leaves a fairly heavy film and is not the easiest to wash off. As I double cleanse I don't mind too much, but I don't love the feeling even once it's off as someone with combo skin as I worry about leaving some residual oils on my face. The scent isn't of papaya as I'd hoped, but of strawberry from the extract included. Packaging and quality are lovely, but I don't think I'd repurchase. A good balm however just not my perfect match!
    Great cleansing balm
    Bought this as an alternative to other popular balms as it is vegan, and I would definitely buy it again! Great to remove makeup and good for dry skin. It is super gentle and does not irritate the skin, the smell is also subtle. The Packaging made a £30 product feel like I had spent a lot more than I had on it! A little also goes a long way, so the price is also very reasonable. Definitely a glow recipe fan after this product!
    New HG!
    I’ve been looking for a cleansing balm or oil for ages that doesn’t sting my eyes when I’m taking my mascara off and this is brilliant! I’ve tried body shop camomile, drunk elephant slaai (the worst for stinging eyes in my experience) as well as many other cult products and this is my far the best! Smells like starburst and so lovely to use. Also helps that their packaging looks super chic! 10/10 - gave my skin a real healthy glow and took all my makeup off without leaving an oily film!
    Not the best balm
    I wanted to love this as I really like Glow Recipe, but it doesn't quite hit the mark for me. It smells lovely; the texture is really rich and luxurious; and it does remove makeup...BUT it doesn't emulsify properly! It goes a little milky but creates a slippery film on my skin when I try to wash it off, and I have to use a flannel to remove it. With a flannel it does come off fine, but I love the ease of balm cleansers that I can just rinse off (instead of the faff of having to have flannels lying around, washing them, etc.) I would absolutely love it if Glow listened to the feedback and re-formulated this slightly.
    Too oily
    The product is good but took a bit long time too rinse it off with the water, very oily...
    Amazing
    So nice on the skin! My skin feels so clean and you can tell there is no harsh ingredients.
    The BEST Glow Recipe product
    I bought this for a first cleanse as part of a double cleanse routine (thanks James Welsh). Unlike some cleansing balms where you wash off quickly, this product works best if you emulsify with water and keep massaging for ~30 seconds. Otherwise this leaves a film that some other reviewers didn't like. This is also how the founders of GR recommend using it. I don't wear make up so I don't use a lot each time but I love using this product every night. This product has helped massively with gentle exfoliation around my beard hairs to completely stop all the ingrown/messed up hairs I used to have to extract daily. This is truly a godsend for my beardy manface and I will be rebuying again and again!
    ♥️
    Perfect!
    Simply Shook!
    I am so pleasantly impressed by this, as always with Glow Recipe products. Smells wonderful, the texture is so light and creamy and it really removes everything with just a few swipes! Highly recommend!
    Average
    The packaging is beautiful and the balm has a lovely texture and makes my dry skin feel very soft. It certainly feels like a product which has been formulated well. However, I don’t wear much makeup and yet I found it did not remove the liner from my bottom lashes like other cleansing balms around the same price point do. Additionally, I found the scent to be far too light to be enjoyed.
    My first one and I love it
    This is the first cleansing balm I bought and I love the whole concept of double cleansing as well as this product. I am becoming Glow Recipe fan :)
    Beautiful and fresh
    I have tried many cleansers, and this is one of the best. It’s not as thick as some others, when you rub it on it’s very buttery and silky. After adding water it turns into a lovely thick creamy consistency. I found it left my skin very soft after and did not leave it feeling oily like I have read from other reviews so this could be due to skin type. My skin is combination/dry but I would not say I have terribly dry skin apart from the odd rosacea outbreak. Great cleanser very refreshing and enjoy this in my morning routine.
    Great concept but not for me
    I love the concept and ingredients of this product but it leaves a heavy oily coat. As a result of this I always cleanse after. I also have oily skin and therefore do not like the feel of the heavy oily coat left on my skin.
    Love love love!
    I wanted a switch from the Emma Hardie cleansing balm that I’ve been using for years and this was a great replacement! I’ve only used it once or twice and it’s left my skin feeling cleansed (all makeup off in the first cleanse) without it being stripped. I can have eczema outbreaks and this has helped keep that at bay. The texture is amazing and you definitely don’t need a lot. There is a light smell, nothing to irritate the skin which I love. Packaging is great as well! Love it
    Happy
    This is my first time switching over to a cleansing balm and leaving the makeup wipes behind. I'm shocked at how well this balm took away my makeup. So fast, easy, and smells delicious! I won't look back now :)
    Best of the best
    Best cleanse ever....
    On my repurchase list
    I have forever struggled getting my makeup up off. Even using micellar waters, I'm still rubbing and pulling my eyes just to get my waterproof mascara off (even bought a waterproof eye makeup remover that still pulls) but not with this. I tried this for the first time the other day and my jaw dropped. I gently rubbed my eyes with this stuff for about 10 seconds and all my mascara was GONE. No under eye residue nothing. It left my skin feeling so smooth and supple. No stripping or eye stinging. Smells delicate and amazing. Could not recommend anymore.
