Using eye makeup remover, I purchased this product to wash off foundation, concealer, & sunscreen. I put a little of foundation & concealer on my face, and I feel that this cleanser at least makes my face clean--but it leaves greasy residue on the face, which makes me question if this cleanser really washes off every single trace of my make-up. Its creamy texture is fine with me as I am familiar with using cold cream to take off heavy make-up (which only happens several times a year). Still this product perplexes me because the instruction says that I should "wash off" with warm water, NOT wipe off with tissue. The latter is the common method to clean the face when using thick-textured make up remover, like this product. Hmmm. The problem is no matter how many times I rinse my face off with VERY warm water, this greasy residue never goes away. I don't recommnd this product for serious make-up removing job.
