Love this product! I wish I knew about this before. I use it to remove and "melt" all my makeup off first and then I wash my face again with Cetaphil. It leaves your skin feeling moisturized but not overly greasy. It removes waterproof eye makeup better than anything I've tried, its cheap, and it works!

This is HANDS DOWN the BEST makeup remover I have EVER used!!
It is so simple to use and it MELTS every last trace of makeup on your eyes! It will NOT clog your pores, it is very light on the skin. The smell is very light and pleasant.
It does not leave your skin oily.
All I do is take a small amount of the product on my finger and run it over my eyelid and then wipe it off with toilet paper!!
Some people complain of it leaving a "film" over their eye balls.
I have experienced this before and it can be uncomfortable but that was becasue I rubbed to hard and some got into my eye.
The formula is very creamy and this stuff lasts for a LONG time and it's cheap as all get out!! I love it!!
I have gone through like 3 of the big tubs and have a small tub in my overnight bag!!
Def. a HG product that i will NEVER live without!!

Mineral oil is not bad for your skin, it will not cause break outs. It might make your skin oily if this makeup remover isn't washed off after you use it. It's VERY important you use ANOTHER cleanser after this one. Extremely. I read here people are wiping and rinsing and their skin is still greasy....what's the point? If you want to get the oil off don't do that? Use this to remove your makeup. You NEED a cleanser like this (solvent) to dissolve hard holding foundation like Doube Wear and ColorStay. Then, wash AGAIN with a water soluble cleanser to get the oil off. It's all part of using makeup.

The misinformation in the reviews is pretty amazing. The tub is actually hygienic, it's small and has preservatives, just use clean hands/fingers when taking some out. Use it properly, it will do its job. Sucks to see a great product get bad reviews because people aren't using it properly.

On the fence about this product. It did an all right job of removing my makeup, felt very creamy and moisturizing. Packaging is not very good since its unhygenic to dip your fingers in, and I hate the residue left behind. I will give this a second chance and try to wipe the residue off better. Will update shortly.

I tried so much to love this, I really did.

It's cheap, supposedly removes makeup well, is gentle on skin, what's there not to love?


1) It does not remove my makeup well
After massaging it on my face for a few minutes, I use cotton wipes to wipe it off, and I need to repeat this step a 2-3 times just to get to the point where there is very little residue left on my face.

The only method that works for me is - Apply cream and wipe off 2-3 times, wipe face with hot towel, then use a foam cleanser.

But I feel like that's too harsh on my skin, which is against why I bought it in the first place (as a gentle makeup remover).

2) There's a film
I expected the film after reading the reviews before i bought this, but the feeling is like there's something "on" my face.

It makes me feel like if I apply any skincare products, they won't absorb, or it will clog my skin.

Sure enough....

3) It caused little bumps on my face

After using this, I usually get tiny small bumps on my cheeks. They are not visible, but when I touch my face I can feel them. This is enough to tell me that my skin is not breathing well when I use this.

Cult favorite for a reason. I love that people have been using this forever and it's a tried and true product. This does an awesome job taking off makeup and you get so much more value for your money than with makeup remover wipes. There's almost nothing on my cotton pad when I use toner after cleansing. If your skin hates fragrance don't use this.
EDIT: tried a makeup remover wipe but found after using a toner there was still stuff coming off on my cotton pad. Can never go back to those things for face makeup! I wonder if that's why I have (a lot) less acne since I started using this, the old wipes just weren't moving all of my makeup.

This is my favorite product to remove my makeup. I've also used it to cleanse my face at night, and I really love it. Sometimes I'll use a cleanser afterward, and sometimes I just use a tissue to wipe this off my face --- either way it gets rid of all my makeup, and my skin feel soft and moisturized. It has never caused me any skin issues, and it helps a lot with my dry skin. It also makes my face smell good! If you're not into fragrance anywhere near your face, avoid all Ponds products. I would recommend this to other people, and I do all the time. I repurchase all the time. I will not be without it.

Never used this stuff because it was so "common" if that makes sense. So available. I liked to try new and hyped up products. But after being in healthcare for 10 years and asking each patient with skin that looked 20 years younger than it should what her secret was, this was always the answer. Seriously. I would expect one of three answers: ponds cold cream, Vaseline, or Olay beauty lotion. Never failed. I'm hooked on it now. I want to have 30 year old skin when I'm 50, so here goes. Great for removing makeup and moisturizing. Apply it, leave it on, remove with warm wash cloth. Awesome skin, removes all traces of eye makeup and doesn't tug on skin the way soap does. Doesn't dry me out. Cheap. My only issue is the packaging. Wish I didn't have to dip my fingers in it each time,but I'm thinking of transplanting it into a pump so that will solve that minor issue.

Words cannot describe how much I love this stuff :) I found a jar of this in one of my mom's bathroom drawers about a year ago. I had no idea what it was, but I put it on my face anyway (I know I know, how stupid of me) It took off all of my makeup and my face did feel clean. I was sold after that. I repurchased this a million times because I do use it every day. I take my makeup off with is and then wash my face with my cleanser. When i'm lazy, I just use this to take of my makeup and skip the cleanser part. One thing I will say about is that it does leave an oily film if you don't wash your face with cleanser afterwards, but i don't really care about that because I only use it night. This is a great product and it won't hurt to try it.

I recently have gotten two small sunburns on my cheek and when it healed, it turned brown and it was a dead skin patch on my face. Also my face needed some moisture because I was peeling. I needed something to moisturize my face and help reduce it. I found this product at the store and I was intrigued by the packaging and decided to give it a try. I came home and followed the steps on the jar, and after I washed my face, my face felt great and refreshed. The dead skin patch peeled off easy and did not do any damage to my skin. I would use this every night now. Since I just recently bought it, I haven't tried it as a make-up remover yet, and I wear waterproof mascara, but based on all the reviews about being a make-up remover, I'm going to try it out soon and I expect great things from this wonderful cleanser. In my opinion, I would recommend this product to any skin type. I was very happy with the results and I will for sure be buying more in the future.
