As a waterproof mascara remover, this stuff works extremely easily. I just rub two fingers in the balm to warm it up and gently massage my eye area to remove my mascara (LancŰme definicils wp) and rinse off- it's gone without a trace. No greasy feeling, no mess, no scent, really you cannot go wrong with this. Only complaint is that it makes my eyes water, and it's rather expensive but well worth it.
i love this product! its not greasy, removes all make up, and doesn't dry my skin out.
its a wax type texture which melts into a milk type texture.
i have used other make up removers, and this is the best by far.
gentle and unscented.
I really like this product. It takes off my makeup and sunscreen very well and does not break me out. I am prone to clogs and breakouts fyi. I still use a cream cleanser and a foaming cleanser after using this product. The only downside is that It is pretty expensive. It does last for a long time because you don't have to use a lot of the product at once in order for it to remove your makeup and sunscreen.
LOVE this balm. As a long time oil cleanser user, I am so on board with this balm.
It basically performs exactly the way oil cleansers to. It's a balm but once you rub the product in your hands for a few seconds, it turns into oil. You rub it all over your face for 30-60 seconds, add a little bit of water, and it turns milky. Then you wash it all off. No oily residue, takes off water proof mascara and my shiseido water resistant sunscreen and skin feels nice and fresh (not stripped and dry).
I really cant tell if this tub will last me longer than normal oil cleansers do but it is pretty big and if it does last longer than liquid oil cleansers do, then even better!
One giant plus for this is also that it travels better. I always dreaded packing my oil cleansers because they would always spill out and get everywhere. Not this!
I think this is fabulous for travel because it wont leak and it takes off all your makeup so you dont need a separate eye makeup remover. Especially in the summer when we have heavy sunscreen on our face and waterproof mascara, I think this is great!
As others have said, with clean hands get out a goodly amount to rub over your entire dry face, carefully massaging it around and over the eyes, and then rinse with warm water. I would always follow up with a cleanser and moisturizer, but that's just me; I have to know my face is really clean.
I do think that my skin feels a bit dry sometimes after use but then I put on moisturizer and it is a moot point.
This is quite different from the regular cleansing oil in a tube that I usually use (MAC cleaning oil is another favorite of mines - does not contain mineral oil).
I decided to give it a try and I am impressed how silky it applies on my face and it cleans my face very well, while removing traces of makeup- It's foamy, exfoliating and milky!
Moreover is on drying and does not irritate my sensitive skin. However, it comes in a jar which can be messy. Other than that, I recommend giving this one a try! The price is reasonable for a department store cleanser and it contains a lot of product.
My daughter (25) brought this home and told me try it. I loved it. I have combination skin, oily in the T-zone, and signs of crows feet. I'm trying to make some changes to my skincare routine as I notice my skin changing.
I followed her direction, using a small amount to massage onto my face and eyes using my fingertips, rinsed with warm water, then lightly washed with a watered down, small amount of my cleanser. I followed with my normal moisturizing routine.
She's let me use her jar a couple of times, and each time my skin feels so smooth when I'm done. I don't feel any tightness, nor have I seen any redness. I'm going to the mall to buy my own jar tomorrow!
HG make-up remover. I've used this for years. It's gentle, thorough, and rinses cleanly.
I like this a lot, it is gentle and effective! It is lasting me forever. I even use it on my eyes and it doesn't burn. I never have a complaint about Clinique's packaging and consider their prices moderate and fair.
I purchased my third jar of this makeup remover yesterday. I have used this product twice before but ended up either getting bored with it and trying something new, or left it in the bathroom where my sister would quickly snatch it up. I decided to purchase it again even though itís expensive because I love Clinique and all their products are fragrance free which is important to me. I wear a lot of makeup daily, especially around the eyes and was using Pondís Make-up Remover with Cucumber Extract to remove everything at night. The Pondís is great and affordable, BUT it has a scent that always irritates my eyes, sometimes to the point where I would wake up with cysts developing on my bottom lash line. I have combination/oily skin that is breakout prone and I can say from previous usage that this product has never broken me out, however the oil can be quite awkward to use. Even though this product is expensive, well to me, $27.50 for 3.8 oz of product, it will last a long time if you are careful with each use. I scoop out maybe a dime sized worth of product with a q-tip and rub it between my handsí which quickly turns the balm into an oil. Then I gently rub the oil onto my face for maybe a minute. I save the eye area for last, and this is when it gets a little awkward, well at least for me. I then just take my hands and gently swipe them over my eyes, coating them in the makeup remover. Then I Just carefully rub it in, paying close attention to my lashes ( I am so used to using a cotton ball with the ponds on it that it feels odd to just use my hands!). By the time I am done, I resemble a raccoon, so I get a warm washcloth and gently remove the oil from my face and eyes. When I am finished, there isnít any trace of makeup left, not even the slightest bit of mascara or eyeliner is left anywhere on my lash line! Finally, because Iím acne prone, I use my regular cleanser to cleanse my face and neck. This product is truly outstanding! It removes makeup without much rubbing and doesnít dry or irritate the skin! It also won"t sting the eyes but can cause eye blurr. One last thing that I would like to mention is that if you are acne prone, or have oily skin you can still use this as long as you use your regular cleanser afterwards, otherwise this WILL break you out! I will never stray away from this product again!
