This is an excellent product for the price. I love the hot cloth cleansing method as I feel it does the most for my skin. A little bit of this butter goes a long way. With the warmth of your fingers it turns into an oil that makes everything melt off. I use the TBS muslin cloth with it to remove and it's easy-peasy. The butter emulsifies with water and rinses very quickly without leaving any greasy residue behind. I use this mainly for taking off make up which means I use a second cleanser to cleanse the skin. Another pro of this product is that it will last ages, since you get a lot and use only the tiniest amount each time.

Sumptuous is really the perfect description for this lovely cleansing balm :)
I love cleansing oils and have used them for years but many brands would leak around the cap and make a mess which drove me nuts!
No mess with this bad boy, it's packaged in a flat tin which I find easy to open. I scoop out a fingertip full and massage it over my face, ahhh. I find it such a soothing way to cleanse, and really look forward to washing off the day with this.
I'd definitely recommend using it with a wash cloth, as I would any cleansing oil, as they need to be removed and can't just be washed away.
Five stars for this one, it's reasonably priced here in Australia and feels so luxurious. Doesn't bug my eyes and is very soothing to skin. Love.

It doesn't breakout my sensitive dry skin, it's very gentle and makes my skin feel soft afterwards. I haven't figured out how to use it to remove makeup(?!), when I've tried the makeup melts but doesn't come off. I think the price is ok, I like the packaging.

This cleansing butter remove all my make and sunscreen but I don't use it to remove my eye makeup or lipstick because it has fragrance. Great for my super sensitive combination acne prone skin even with the fragrance it did not cause any irritation or aggravate my dermatitis not even a breakout. The texture is more of a light balm when you work it in it melt into a oil quick and easily. This is not as thick as a lot of other cleansing balms it melt into a light oil. Usually when I use a oil or balm type cleanser it causes irritation and breakout even when I double cleanse with a separate cleanser but not for this one. It rinses off without leave a sticky or heavy greasy residue nor did it over dry my skin but I still double cleanser. This does not contain mineral oil. Mineral oil is basically petroleum jelly/vaseline. The base oils are olive oil, annus seed oil and sunflower seed oil. It also contains synthetic wax but is not waxy at all. This is also cheaper compared to other more popular cleansing balms. The only con is it contain parfum fragrance without the fragrance this would be even better than the other more popular brand since it doesn't contain mineral oil.

I bought this along with some of the camomile cleansing oil and love this. It's a very rich-feeling butter, and you only need a tiny bit. I scoop a bit, rub between my hands, apply all over my face, concentrating on my eyes, and it rinses all off, taking off even mascara and eyeliner. Plus it leaves skin feeling soft. In the winter, this and the cleansing oil, were particularly helpful in fighting off dryness, and I'm still using it as the mercury rises. I'd gripe about the price of the product, but The Body Shop often has sales where you can get 40 percent off or buy two, get two free, that you rarely have to pay full price. And a little goes such a long way.

I love this cleansing butter. It takes makeup off better than anything I've ever used before, including waterproof mascara. A little bit goes a LONG way, so the tin lasts forever. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because I can no longer use it due to the fact that it irritates my eyes (it still works great for removing face makeup).

This is a good makeup remover that really takes away all of the makeup. You don't need a lot of product every time, and therefore it lasts a long time. It didn't not sting or burn my eyes but could make my vision a bit blurry before and after i washed it off. The only reason i didn't repurchase this right away was because it is a more messy way ro remove your makeup, but as i said, it does the job very well. It is also very portable and travel friendly, and i would recommend it.

Having just started my second tin, I figured it was time to give an honest review. Honestly, I love this balm very much. I have oily/combo skin that is very prone to breakouts, and never did I experience any irritation or breakouts whilst using this balm. However, I want to be clear in stating that I used this balm as a M/U remover only, so I did use a separate cleanser afterwards to make sure my face was entirely clean of makeup, oil, and dirt. The price for this is a little expensive compared to other cleansing balms, but the amount given will last at for at least 3-6 months of use. I got about 6 months out of my tin, and considering that it travels well, doesn't cause breakouts, and is within a decent price-point, I would certainly buy it again and again.

I love this product. By far the best thing to remove makeup. I use this before my regular cleanser. Has a pleasant but none over powering smell. You only need a little bit and it effortlessly melts off the day, including mascara which I would usually have to fight with to get off. Very gentle. I can even rub it in my eyes and it wont sting or irritate. Leaves my face feeling soft and moisturised. Definitely worth your buck.

OMG I love this product, I takes every thing off, like every bit of makeup off including foundation,mascara and eyeliner. It's cleans your entire face in one step, literally one rinse and you good to go off to bed. What I also love about it is the feeling it leaves my skin, when you apply this product it feels like your greasing up your face with soft butter but once you rinse it off there is no greasy feeling, no film but at the same time your skin also doesn't feel stripped, it's so gentle and effective!!! I never want to go back to using makeup wipes or cotton pad with remover when there's a gentle, effective, friction-less, tug-less way of removing makeup. I'm stocking up backups when they do another 40-50% off sale and I can pick it up at $9.60 cdn.
