Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser Review ... Best Oil Cleanser?

Updated: Aug 10, 2019

Let's be honest ... the skincare scene is absolutely saturated with products at the moment so it's extremely hard to figure out what to use. With this being my first blog about skincare I thought why not start with a product I fell in love with 4 months ago. I am of course talking about the Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser and Bamboo Booster!

If you are familiar with Korean skin care you know that double cleansing is part of their 10-step routine. The first step is to do an oil cleanse. I started oil cleansing about a year ago using the BANILA CO NEW Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm . Being the first oil cleanser I have ever used, I thought WOW, this is amazing! Little did I know that there was something in the works that would blow it out of the water. The Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser and Bamboo Booster came out last spring and took the skincare industry by storm. If you know much about Drunk Elephant, you know that they put a lot of R&D into their products. After using this product for 4 months I can say that is certainly true!

The product comes in a large plastic tub which ended up lasting me 3 months. The buttery-like cleanser is made up of Marula Oil in addition to kiwi and strawberry extracts, baobab, kalahari melon, mongongo, and ximenia oils. It is accompanied by a Bamboo Booster exfoliate which is essentially tiny beads within a white powdery substance. It is made from bamboo powder and charcoal derived from baked bamboo. One of the coolest features is that it comes with a little spoon that is magnetized to stick to the top of lid. How creative is that!


1. Scoop out a quarter sized amount with the provided spoon. I recommend using this product for both your morning and night routines.

2. While the cleanser is on the spoon, pour the Bamboo Booster onto it. Make sure you use enough to cover up the cleanser.

3. Apply to your face starting with the cheeks, then the forehead, then the chin, then the nose, and lastly the neck. DON'T FORGET THE NECK! Apply it by pressing it against your face allowing your body heat to melt it. Your natural facial heat allows for it to spread like butter on hot buns.😊

4. Message it onto your face for about one minute and then rinse thoroughly.


You face will feel EXTREMELY CLEAN after using this product. I myself don't wear makeup but I can say this product really gets deep into the skin. With that being said, makeup doesn't stand a chance!

In closing, I think It's important to emphasize the fact that the first step of your skincare routine is the most important. This step is the foundation of the process and can make or break it. If your face isn't clean, the products you use for treatment later in the sequence will be less effective. If you are spending lots of money on your treatment products then why wouldn't you want to give them the best chance of working. I will say the Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser and Bamboo Booster will definitely start you off on the right foot!
