Evolve Beauty: Gentle Cleansing Melt

Evolve beauty is a concise range of skincare and body care products, based on offering a healthier and kinder alternative to "conventional" products.
The products contain no parabens, SLS/SLES, silicones, phthalates, synthetic fragrances or colours. They are certified organic by Ecocert and are 99.5%+ natural. They only use 100% recycled bottles and everything is produced in the UK (for the lowest possible carbon footprint). Price wise, I find them very affordable, most things are priced around £10-£15.
I was sent the Gentle Cleansing Melt to try (£12.99 for 100ml), fortunate for me as that was one of the products that had been lingering on my to buy list.
Its a sugar based soap free clear balm. Its extremely thick and concentrated so you only need a small amount for your entire face. Due to the thickness I was sure I would get residue left on my skin which would lead to breakouts.
I was however wrong, adding a bit of warm water, the balm transforms into more of a milky consistency and rinses off completely. I get absolutely no greasy/oily residue nor any last traces of makeup. I didn’t trust it at first so in my first 3 days of use I used toner afterwards just to see if anything was left, but there really wasn’t.
It removes heavy makeup well, although I would say I have to work it into the lash line a bit to get my mascara off completely.
It doesn’t give my skin the same level of softness and moisture as my Elemental Herbology balm however it does leave my skin feeling clean and comfortable. Overall this is a affordable, effective, yet gentle makeup remover, which I think might also be good for skin suffering from eczema.

I might try the haircare next so I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has any thoughts on this brand?
