I like the fact that it's a balm and I don't have to worry about it leaking all over the place like a cleansing oil. It doesn't cause me to breakout or cause irritation, which is very rare because it seems like everything makes me breakout of aggrivates my rosacea. After I remove my makeup with this, I wash with a gentle cleanser to remove anything that may be left behind.
Another one of clinique product that I abselutely hate. This product is ridiculous... it's disgusting. It smell horrible like petroleum jelly only worst. It does melt into the skin and suprisingly it does not sting my eyes HOWEVER it makes my eyes go all blurry. even after I cleanse my face with facial wash it leaves greasy residue leaving me with massive break out. BOO!!! hate it!
Fantastic on oily makeup wearing skin in the evening. I use with a washcloth. Lasts ages. Lovely packaging. Will definitely repurchase this.
I really like this product. If I don't get an opportunity to purchase DHC's Cleansing Oil, I can purchase this from any department or Sephora store. Takes everything off but I still use another cleanser after this to ensure everything is removed. The only problem with this is that it lasts less than a month for me, approximately 3 weeks. Can be very expensive in the long run. The upside to this product is that it doesn't break out my acne-prone skin.
Ooh I so wanted to like this product because it worked so well on removing and cleansing my skin! But unfortunetly with my sensitive eyes like another reviewer said this product stung and made my eyes tear really bad. I didn't know wether to put eyedrops on my eyes or water it was painful afterwards. But the good news is that it takes off waterproof eyemakeup and took off my foundation and moisturizer with SPF in a flash! So I know you other ladies will have better luck with this product than I did. And suprisingly it did not clog up my pores(I have really oily/blemish prone skin) because this product is very oily when applied but when washed, all of oiliness disappears and you're left with clean skin!
I love this stuff. It feels amazing. it removes the toughest face and eye makeup.
Must add my rave! This product is fabulous for removing sunscreen and makeup before cleansing. I have to say I was not originally convinced of the merits of two-step cleansing but this product sold me. My skin is cleaner and clearer now that my treatment products are not fighting thir way through residue. As mentioned, a small fingerful does the job quickly, and I follow up with my Clinique Liquid Soap. Very pricey at AU$55 but the pot is huge and will probably last half a year or more. Well done!
sorry to be a party pooper here. i am giving this 3 l/s and not less because this indeed does what it intends to do, namely, removing m/u very efficiently. however, i tried it to remove eye m/u exactly once as it made my eyes tear. the reason i don't like this product is because i feel that i have to drag and pull my face to distribute the balm. i complained about this to the clinique sa and she told me that i should warm it betw my fingers before applying to my dry face. wonderful idea but ... it didn't work. i will definitely not repurchase. anyway, it appears to me that this jar will last forever.
I LOVE this. I bought it based on the reviews here. I'm new to the world of using creams and balms as cleansers and I've used Pond's Cold Cream and Lush's Ultra Bland previously and with good results but the amount of product you get with this is *insane*. I live in a very dry climate and I find taking my makeup off at night with something like this makes my face feel so much better than a stripping liquid cleanser. I use this by smoothing it onto a dry face and then washing off with warm water and a facecloth. Fantastic. **EDIT** I took a lippie off because my jar developed mould. To be fair I wasn't careful enough about keeping damp hands out of it, but tube packaging would probably be a lot better.
This is the one product in my collection I would die without! I use this religiously every night and couldn't imagine skipping it. I reccomend this to everyone!
