While Vaseline can be used as a moisturizer or to protect the skin's barrier, it is not recommended to use it as a cleansing balm. Vaseline is a petroleum-based product that creates a barrier on the skin, which can make it difficult for other products to penetrate and cleanse effectively.

Cleansing balms are specifically formulated to remove makeup, dirt, and impurities from the skin. They typically contain emulsifiers that allow them to be rinsed off easily with water. Vaseline does not have these properties and may leave a greasy residue on the skin.

Instead, I would recommend using a dedicated cleansing balm or oil cleanser that is specifically formulated for removing makeup and cleansing the skin. These products are designed to effectively dissolve and remove dirt, oil, and makeup without leaving a heavy residue. Look for products that are non-comedogenic and suitable for your skin type.
