Review: Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel


Alohaa. Today I have for you a review of the Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel*, a little bit of a cult product in the beauty world and one that I have been lusting after for such a long time. When Clarins offered me the chance to try it out a few weeks back I nearly fell over myself scrambling to type 'yes yes yes!' in that reply box! Clarins did not let me down with this one and it is honestly my new favourite product! From the first use, I just absolutely fell in love. 


I did make an attempt at showing the transitional forms that this cleanser takes, but it didn't come across well in photographs. Pure Melt is a little bit of a fancy one and it has three stages to it's consistency: It starts off initially as a thick gel, which then melts down into an oil upon contact with warm skin, and then emulsifies to a milk when mixed with water. I don't know if it's just me and my easily pleased simple mind, but I enjoy the novelty of this triple-texture cleanser.

Massaging the beautifully scented gel onto dry skin feels absolutely heavenly. So good that I look forward to pulling this out of the cupboard and washing my face at the end of the day! It gives a very at-home spa like feeling, and as the gel eventually transforms into a thick and nourishing oil cleanser it makes light work of breaking down all make up on the skin, even eye make up, and other skin impurities. Just a single cleanse with this leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed, but calm and softened. It is an ideal night time cleanser to really give yourself a bit of a luxurious pamper after a hard day. Honestly, you might be thinking - 'Chill your beans, Hannah. It's just a cleanser', but it just gives the nicest sensation to the skin during use, and after use too.

I've tried to use straight up cleansing oils in the past but have never found any that I've agreed with, and they tend to be a bit messy. Pure Melt cleanses the skin as an oil but it adds ease to entire process, just by setting off as a gel, as opposed to being an oil from the start. Then, like with all oil cleansers it mixes with water and forms a 'silky milk' that then rinses the skin clean and - voila - all make up and yuck on your skin from the day is washed away and your skin is plumped and comfortably moisturised with the essential Marula Oil.


So, I might have gone a bit OTT on taking pictures, but it was a photographic product (yep, I did just say that), and I think the packaging of this is just lovely - all aspects and angles of it needed to be shared! Clarins is good at making their product packaging simple and quite understated, but at the same time gorgeous with an expensive feel to them. No frills, but no cheap feel. I love that they've always got their signature splash of red somewhere on the product too.

But anyway, that's Pure Melt in a nutshell for you and the two final words to summarise would have to be: Absolutely. Amazing. I don't even think that it's too badly priced for a luxury skincare item either. I know that it's one I'd definitely go to purchase again, and I'd highly recommend it to all skin types as well - especially those in need of a bit of extra moisture.

  4. I've heard lots of good things about this product and you're right, it's not too pricey! I may have to give it a whirl as I'm looking for a new cleanser.

  5. It's a really lovely product. I tend to alternate between this one and the Daily Energizing Cleansing Gel - they are both great! Xx

  9. It is similar to the NSPA melting cleansing gel? I've never used a gel before but really liked that one as i wasnt expecting it to turn into an oil!

    1. Yeah it's a similar concept to the NSPA one, but I much much much prefer this one from Clarins! I know it costs a lot more, but when it's in the oil state it just feels so much nicer than the nspa one. I think you'd like this :) xx

  10. It makes me sad to hear such an amazing review when I didn't get on with it at all. It felt like it left a layer of oil on my skin regardless of how many times I tried to wash it off.

    Glad it worked for you.

    1. Oh no! Really?! :( Did you try washing it off with a face cloth instead of just water? I usually get it all off with a wet muslin cloth.

      Just shows that not everything works the same for everyone!

  14. Fab review lovely! I was sent this a little while ago too and although I loved it after first use, I was put off by reviews online that claim it will cause breakouts due to the mineral oil in it. I have super sensitive skin so this definitely concerns me! I know you have sensitive skin too though and if its worked well for you I might have to give it another go! I absolutely love oil cleansers - they're so luxurious! xxxx.

    1. Thank you! :) Oooh gosh I never know what to do about the whole mineral oil debate - it seems to be in loads of products and I'm never sure whether to avoid them or not :( I don't use it every single day and its been fine for me. I'm a new huge fan of oil cleansers too! xxxxx

  24. This sounds amazing! I have never tried Clarins products as I have never really been drawn in by the packaging if I am honest, but this looks quite cute too, and from your description sounds amazing! As much as it is high end, it doesn't seem overly expensive though either!
