I absolutely love this product. It feels good going onto my skin, gets rid of pretty much everything on it, and comes off nicely. I normally use this before moving on to the Clinique 3-step system, and my skin has never been better. The price is a bit steep (here in Japan at least), but it's so good that I will definitely buy more when I run out.

I have bought my second one... It does its job and it feels fantastic! The good thing is I no longer need to buy a separate remover for my eye make up!

Really strange that I've repurchased this. I am not sure if they have reformulated but it now gives me horrible cystic acne all over my chin and cheek area.

First let me say that I don't wear foundation (so I can't tell you how this works to remove it) but I DO wear physical only sunscreen and this stuff takes that off easily and completely! I used to have to wash my face multiple times with my usual cleanser to remove sunscreen and even that didn't get all of it off. Now, I use a little Take The Day Off, rinse, and then wash my face as usual and wha-laa: all gone! And the best part...my sensitive skin has never broken out or had a bad reaction from this.
I do wish this came in a tube -- although it's so thick t would be difficult to get it out. I just don't like digging into the jar but I can live with that.
I would definitely purchase this again but I'm still on my first one -- it has lasted a long time.

I love this make-up remover! At first I was hesitant to apply an oily product to my skin because I am prone to break-outs, but I have been using this for 3 months and my skin condition has improved. Previously, I was using just a creamy cleanser to wash my face but in retrospect I can see that wasn't adequate for removing make-up and sunscreen.
The texture of this product is a solid balm (convenient for travel), but it literally melts into an oil when rubbed onto dry skin. After rinsing, my skin is probably clean enough to dry and moisturize, but I l prefer to follow up with a glycolic acid cleanser to address other skin issues.
I have not used other oil-based make-up removers for comparison, but this product is so fabulous I can't see ever trying any others!

HG! When I was younger, I wore make up everyday and a lot of it was dark and/or water proof, so needless to say I needed a heavy duty remover. I love the fact that this is a solid so you can scoop some up, and put it directly on the spot you need to have makeup removed--ideal for removing pesky eyeshadow on your eyelids. It takes off everything (the name Take The Day Off is perfect!) from mascara to sunscreen to lipstick; both waterproof and non waterproof. I wear contacts so my eyes can be sensitive and even when I rub some of this stuff near my waterline, there is no stinging or burning. However, if you get this in your eye, you will have blurry vision for a few seconds. While it is not painful, avoid that if you can! I will admit that it is expensive ($27.50-ouch!) but the jar is huge and the product is concentrated--a little goes a long way. I think my jar lasted about 5 months and that was with almost daily use.
If you have normal to dry skin, you can definitely use this as an all inclusive make up remover/ cleanser because it does that good of a job at cleaning your skin. However I tend to have oily skin, so I prefer to follow it up with another cleanser just in case.
This product has also saved me time and effort. Before I bought the balm, I used to have to use eye makeup remover to get rid of eye makeup, then a creamy cleanser to get rid of my face makeup, and then an anti oil/anti acne cleanser to get rid of any residue the creamy cleanser left and to help keep my skin breakout free.But with this, I can just use the balm and then my oil free cleanser. Sometimes, depending on how my skin feels, I don't even need to follow up with that cleanser! So it's safe to say, this is my favorite make up remover of all time.

Very good stuff, but only for the eye area in my case. Expensive, but the jar will last a really long time and there is no tugging, pulling, or dryness while using this. As I age and become more concerned about wrinkles around my eyes, this remover is excellent for removing stubborn eyeliners and mascaras gently. Will repurchase when I finally run out.

Absolutely my HG face wash. the instructions made me uncomfortable, i have to admit: put the balm on a dry face, rub in it, rinse it off, pat dry. I thought there was no way my face, waterproof makeup and all, could get clean from that. BUT IT DOES! if i use toner afterwards, there is never any residue. leaves my face soft, clean, and is super gentle. LOVE IT.

Ehhhh its ok. It does take off my makeup but its just a hassle for me. I rather use wipes. Did the job and didnt break me out but would not repurchase.

I have repurchased this several times.....although I found one at my local macys...another told me it was discontinued. Wonder if it is or not because it is still online as well. This is a hg makeup remover. I tend to jump back and forth between a few oils,m/u cleansers. This leaves my skin soft and no film/grease. Also it is gentle on the eyes and does not irritate my skin at all. Pricey but worth it.
