I got this off a TV shopping channel as a two pack (pm and am cleanser). I must say that I am much more in love with the am cleanser as it is fresh and lemony and doesnt strip my skin, but still manages to clean all the gunk away. The pm cleanser doesnt seem to remove dirt and impurities as good as the am cleanser, so I use this as a mask instead. I put it on for about 10 minutes and it softens my skin. Smells gorgeous. I would only repurchase if it was part of a twin am/pm pack.

This is a creamy non-lathering cleanser. It smells just like an orange creamsicle. Although it feels rich, I don't think it removes all my makeup. It works well in the winter because my skin just dries up, and this doesn't dry out skin. I think it would be too rich for warmer weather unless you have consistently dry skin. I don't think I'd repurchase because it has a very strong smell, and I feel like I need to use it twice sometimes to remove all my makeup.

I LOVE this cleanser as my night time makeup remover. I was initially a bit hesitant about using a 'balm' style cleanser on my combination skin, thinking it might be too heavy and greasy. But I was definitely wrong. The texture is AMAZING - it's thick and creamy, but it has a gel-like consistency. This makes it glide over the skin beautifully, and it removes any makeup without the need for rubbing/scrubbing. I apply the cleanser on my face and then use a cotton pad to distribute the cleanser all over. I usually do this just before having a shower at night time, so then I just give my face a light wash with a daytime cleanser or the liquid soap I use in the shower. However it can just be wiped off with a damp cloth. Also, this can be left on the skin for a few minutes as a hydrating mask. Either way (whether I leave it on my skin for a few seconds or a few minutes), my skin feels so amazingly smooth and soft after. And - the smell is gorgeous! Definitely going to be my staple night time cleanser/makeup remover.

I bought this cleanser at TSC in Canada as part of a showstopper. The kit came with this AM cleanser, the PM cleanser, the wrinkle soak mask, and dermapeel treatment all for $50 canadian including taxes. I also got the kit on auto delivery every 2 months. Which in my mind quite frankly is a steal for such high quality products.
In this kit the PM Olive and Enzyme Rich Balm Cleansercame in a double 8 ounce size with a pump dispenser. The cleanser is a orange, creamy cleanser. I use 4 to 6 pumps in the evening allover my face and neck and let sit for 1 to 2min before washing it off in the shower.
The smell is very nice like an orange creamsicle. It desolves all the oil, dirt, and grime from the day. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and decongested. Over the month that I have used this line I see a great improvement in the clarity of my skin, no new breakouts, my skin feels like it can breathe, and is not dry or irritated at all.
My skin type is oily in areas and acne prone. I have spent probably thousands of dollars and many years in skin care over the years to get my skin to look just healthy. It could be that I am growing out of my acne but I know these products certainly have helped my skin.
Yes you do have to buy the stuff on tv or via his website. But the products and a good value for your money. They do work. He keeps water, sulphates, and parabens out of his products. I think I am hooked. I have yet to try any other products from the line but will be shortly.

This is one of the few Skinn product that I will order separately & stocked up, I ordered 4, just in case Skinn decided to discontinue its production. There is the word "Rich" and if that's not enough "Balm", what do you think that mean?
I still won't rely solely on it to remove the makeup, I do my cleansing oil first & then smooth a thick layer on for 10 minutes or so, its moisturizing & calming. Enzyme is a less effective way for exfoliation, so I do not depend on it (AHA works best for me).
I still followed the routine of serum & night moisturizer afterward though.

Smells great but leaves a film on my face. I have to use another cleanser afterwards to remove it.

This is the PM cleanser from the set I purchased off ShopNBC. It smells like an orange creamsicle and it's very concentrated, you only need so much. I rarely wear make-up, but this is a very nice cleanser. My only complaint is that Dimitri needs to put these products in PUMP bottles. A definite repurchase. :)

As the other reviewer said, I dont feel like this takes off my makeup and thoroughly cleans my skin but it is GREAT as a face mask. I have bought kits of Skinn products from the Shopping Channel and have used this in combination with Skinn's Dermappeal scrub and they work great together. However, as a day to day cleanser without the scrub, it's too... balmy. It almost feels like it leaves a greasy residue on my face which I think would be great if you have dry skin as it would give you that extra moisturizing boost but I have combo skin and I like my skin to feel cleansed and clean after I wash it! As a mask, I felt like it exfoliated and tightened my pores and in general, I am a fan of Skinn's skincare products (the makeup is horrible) so I'd buy it again if it was part of another kit. But I wouldn't buy it on its own.

This is a delicious smelling creamy cleanser - orange creamcicle, yum.
However as a cleanser for my oily to combo skin? Naw - it's too rich, too 'balmy', and just doesn't get down to the cleansing that i like (such as their Rapid Exfoliating Cleanser which is my HG). Got this in a kit off the Shopping Channel and this cleanser was supposed to be my pm cleanser, but it just didn't cut it for my skin and didn't take make up off (for a pm cleanser, that's kind of lame). Proabably perfect for dry skin ladies, but not for combo that needs a thorough cleansing.
