so, i was searching around for something to get the makeup off after a long day, and i remembered that my grandmother used to use this. well, she had good reason! takes off the day in a swipe, especially stubborn eye makeup, which is usually my problem...i smooth it on my dry skin and then wipe off with a warm, damp cloth. leaves my skin smooth and i don't really need to use moisturizer afterwards. has helped to calm my breakouts, too, which i thought was odd, but hey, i'll go with it.
pros: cheap, cleans well, leaves skin soft and moisturized.
cons: hard to get the last little bit out of the bigger jars.
I'm not sure how I feel about this... I like oil cleansers for leaving my skin smooth, soft, and clean, but this didn't feel the same, although it is an oil base (mineral oil). I was super-excited to try this and bought the 3.5 oz jar. I used it twice and am not sure I am going to use it again... it did a great job removing makeup, but more than feeling soft and smooth, my skin felt like it had wax on it. It feels like wax in my opinion. It even goes on like a whipped wax. It's definitely not comparable to an oil cleanser in the area of moisturizing, and I feel like I have to wash my face afterwards, unlike with oil cleansers. Oh well.
this product is awesome and it definitely works! my mom has been using this product since forever, one day i was just wondering about her bathroom looking for a facial wash i can borrow when i came across this tub.. at first i felt weirded out piling some oily cream over my already oily skin.. but after i wiped it off, my skin felt reaaaaaaally nice and soft! and i didn't feel any trace of grease/oil on my skin right after! to top it off, the price is definitely right :)
Why do I always complicate things? This stuff is timeless and so EASY! Lately, I have been on a quest for a new cleansing routine. I have always used Cetaphil for my dry/combo skin until just recently I noticed that it just wasnt removing all of my makeup. I was using too much irritating toner and so something had to change.
I went through several different products before I decided to try cold cream, I wish I had saved my money. This product removed all my makeup and left my skin feeling soft, clean and moisturized in one easy step. I just massage it in and remove it with a warm washcloth. Even my stubborn eyemakeup and especially tightlined eyeliner is removed. A once over with toner confirmed it, my skin is finally CLEAN! I needed no further moisturizing, this one product did it all.
really good product.. if you need a deep cleanser to remove any dirt or oil ponds deep cleanser cold cream is the way to go...
I started using this product just to remove eye makeup. My cleanser has salycilic acid in it, and has been drying my eyes out so much that some wrinkles actually started to pop up! I can't believe I've waited this long to try this cleanser out. My own mother used this stuff my entire childhood, and I never even thought to try it. Well, there is a reason this stuff is a classic. It takes all my eye makeup right off without feeling over drying or abrasive. I don't even need water, just a tissue. Hopefully now that I've incorporated this into my routine, my poor eye skin will have a chance to recover.
I'm still in awe with this product. I've been using Lancome's Bifacil Makeup Remover for years now, and I decided I didn't want to spend the extra $$ so I went to walgreens and picked this up - I'm so glad I did. Not only did it moisturize my eye area, but it removed everything just so effortlessly. I use cotton balls to wipe it off, and I barely need to apply any pressure. This product helped me realize that the dark under-eye circles I thought I had was only from the makeup residue that the Lancome Makeup Remover left behind. I can't believe I used make up without this!
My lazy butt is in love with this stuff!!! In one simple step my makeup is removed, my skin is super soft...and CLEAN! I scoop a little with my fingers out....smooth this all over my face, massage it in a bit, tissue off, and voila! Makeup gone and face is baby soft. Afterwards I'll wipe my face with a warm washcloth if I'm not doing any extra cleansing that night. I've never had a product remove all remnants of the day's makeup (eye makeup and mascara included) without having to reapply over and over again. I used to barely take my face off at night (cringe) because I'm so tired and don't feel like one more thing to do. This saved my face for allowing me to get it done with barely any steps. A definite HG and I will purchase again and again and again....
My HG makeup remover! This cold cream is AWESOME! It removes all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling refreshed =) The packaging sucks though. Scooping the cream from the jar seems really unhygienic
Had acne for couple years and decided to use this cold cream in combination with dove sensitive bar unscented at nights. This has improved my acne alot.
I would be careful using harsh products like benzoyl peroxide. I believe the harsh products caused my severe acne in the first place. I was told I had sensitive skin.
