Definitely the best make-up remover for me. I have been using this product for many years and haven't found anything to replace it. I use it to remove all make-up, including waterproof eye make-up and sun screen. It just works! I rub a little amount over my face and eyes, massage in for a few seconds, then rinse and with warm water. I sometimes use a damp cotton pad held onto my eyes for a second or two and gently swipe away heavy eye make-up. Does not leave a residue or film after. Does not dry out skin. I then follow with my Clarins cleanser in my Clarisonic Mia.

My HG make-up remover. On my 3rd jar now.
Lovely fragrance free balm that feels soothing and calming to massage on your skin for as long as you want. Whether you use it for a few seconds or a few minutes, it takes all make-up off instantly. Some kinds of lipstick may need wiping off with a cotton ball/ pad, but for the rest of the face just a quick massage with your fingers and rinsing with water gets everything off.
Does not leave a residue or film after. Does not dry out skin.
I would suggest follow up for a second cleanse with a gentle cleanser like Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser (see my review of this).
Definitely not cheap - in fact, it's very expensive. But it's the only make-up remover that is good for my dry/ combination skin. It lasts a while. It goes against my previous advice in other reviews of using a cheap cleanser so you can splurge on other skin products. However, as I said, it's the only make-up remover than gentle and thorough on my skin.

Definitely the best makeup remover that I have used as far as removing foundation goes. I use a tissue to wipe my makeup off. When you put it on a tissue or your hands, it warms up and turns to more of a liquid. With this stuff you don't really nice makeup wipes or eye makeup remover. However, I believe this has caused my to have some breakouts because it does contain pore clogging ingredients. I recommend following immediately with a cleanser.

What a great makeup cleanser. It goes on like Alboline but it is not greasy. It washes off in the shower and completely removes my makeup. I'm thrilled with it It removes most of my eye make up which nothing else has been able to do. I just love the way you can rub it in and the ease of washing it off with water. I'd buy again in a minute!

I have been using this for a few weeks. I have dry, sensitive skin. I wear a full face of makeup daily, and this is a wonderful makeup remover. I was going through a ton of pads and wipes to remove eye & face makeup. No need for either with this product. With a warm wash cloth everything melts right off. No tugging @ the eye either! Will mention the first ingredient is ethylhexyl palmitate, which is a pore clogging ingredient. So I follow with the Aveeno moisturizing bar to remove all traces of the balm, and have had no breakouts.

girls, this is meant to be used as double cleansing and you need to use it with dry hands on dry face (full of makeup/sunscreen/sunblock..yes!)...rinse with water THOROUGHLY and use your own cleanser afterwards...i realised some people break out from this as they did not properly rinse this off..it emulsifies into milk with water ..if you dont, it might block your pores...so to those of you who had break outs after using this..try rinsing properly...see if it works better this time :)) good luck..
Update: Already on my 7th tub..still love it, much as ever!

This stuff takes all my makeup off wonderfully. It's probably the one makeup remover I've used where nothing is left behind on my eyes... Not a trace of anything! The one thing I'm not sure about is that the balm gets kinda dirty since you keep dipping your hand into it and it also leaves my eyes with an oily film after I rinse. It goes away but it can be annoying. I don't use this all the time, just when traveling, and I do my regular face cleansing routine afterwards. It def works well and is easy to tote around, but maybe a more hygienic delivery would be better( which I don't know is possible with it being a balm) and a way to lessen the oily film in my eyes after rinsing would be great. I like it but it's not as convenient for me as a my hygienic squeeze tube. the look of the balm can be a little bit of a turn off when it starts to get gross. And it can be drying.

I was hesitant to purchase since it is a balm but the reviews were fantastic. A little goes a long way. Feels weird at first, but takes every bit of makeup off. Definetely a keeper.

I bought this product because I sometimes use very resisting makeup like the Estee lauder Double Wear line and all cleansers take it off but not completely. I use a spatula to get product out of the bottle. In the beginning I dag a little hole because I considered I need as much quantity as in for a face cream to cover my face but no - just lightly "scratching" the surface would get you enough for face, eyes and neck as this product turns into a very fine oil on the skin that is easily spread. Massage for wait after spreading for like a minute or so and then rinse with water followed by your daily cleanser.My face has oily zones but those loved this oil cleanser too, At the end my face was so smooth and calmed down from dusk till dawn, no exaggeration. I will definitely repurchase this on winter I do need a lasting foundation if I wear one since the water and the cold ruin any other type of foundation at least around my nose and this takes it off without dehydrating my skin (P.S. first use I did use a toner but just to check if it really cleansed well enough - and the cotton pad was sparkling white. But you don't need a toner with this one, it does all the work).

I heard about this product from a popular make-up guru in youtube. All I can say is, I'm glad I listened to her and bought this product because this cleansing balm is the best make-up remover I've ever tried. It beats the cleansing wipes and the other liquid make-up removers. It is pretty much the HG of make-up removers for me. I think the balm is a bit pricey for my liking but I've had mine for more than a year now, So it's definitely worth it. A little goes a long way for this one. I'll definitely re-purchase this item once I'm out.

I bought this on a whim after hearing about it on the make up board. I wear heavy foundations like Mac pro Longwear & Estee lauder double wear so I really need a good Cleanser that will remove every last bit of foundation. And this is it. It is absolutely amazing. I am nearly out of my 1st one and wont hesitate to replace it once its gone.

I got a good sized pot of this in with a free gift. I swipe some cotton wool over the top and smooth it over my eye-makeup and face. I leave it for a minute then i use a clean cotton pad to wipe it all off. Then I follow with a normal face wash. I find this is amazing for makeup such as Estee Lauders DW and the like, as it just dissolves it! Ill be purchasing this when I do eventually run out :)

I wanted a moisturizing cleanser and thought that a cleansing balm or oil would work best. This was the pretty much perfect on my set of criteria. Unlike previous cleansing balms/oils, this rinses clean - no film! (I do follow with my Dickson's Witch Hazel toner anyway.) This left my face soft and supple, no dry patches or tightness, and helped with the redness I have. I always wash my hands before I used this as to not contaminate the product, so I didn't mind the product coming in a jar. I personally liked the tub because I could get every little bit out (if I continued to use this), but a squeeze tube might be easier for travel. You don't need much of this either. HOWEVER, after regular use (about a week and a half to two weeks), I noticed that my pores were very clogged and I had to use a q-tip to unclog them almost every two days. No breakouts, but eventually some of the clogged pores developed into little bumps of my nose that would not go away. Once I stopped using this and switched over to my previous cleanser (Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel), the bumps went away. This would've been my HG if only this didn't give me severely clogged pores. Sensitive acne-prone combination skin beware!

Wow! I was thinking about buying a cleansing oil to remove my makeup but since I don't have one available near me and I didn't want to order one online, I chose this as an alternative (the second ingredient is oil so essentially it can be considered as a cleansing oil but in a hard form). And let me tell you this is the only Clinique product that I totally loved. It removed my face AND eye makeup. And it didn't mess with my contact lenses. It is like a soft butter that turns into oil once you touch it, and unlike Lancome cleansing baume this doesn't dry out my skin nor does it leave any weird film. I use a cleansing cream and a toner afterwards, and my skin is super clean
Update: I still think that this is the best makeup remover I've ever encountered but it is highly comedogenic and, as a result, it clogged the heck out of my pores. From now on I can only use it to remove my eyeshadows

This balm leaves my skin soft as butter after rinsing it off. It melts away 97% of my makeup and it doesn't lather which is good (I always double cleanse and I never use the balm twice instead I use sensifluid from A-derma or any milky cleanser) Some have mentioned it dries their skin out but I haven't experienced anything like that. My skin is combo with teenage spots and I recommend this to everybody except for those who apparently think this is dehydrating their skin....I have used this balm for 5 years.

This is amazing...takes off make up leaves skin smooth and is in a cool little container

I love this makeup remover! it actually does remove pretty much everything on the face and the eyes. The best part is you don't have to use cotton pads like you would for other makeup remover. I would definately buy again, even though it is $55 in Aus..

Gave me terribly dry skin, made the skin around my mouth and my chin peel off. This product also gave me acne like I've never had before- within about a week I was covered in whiteheads and large sores. I will never buy it again.

This is definitely the best make up remover I've used so far. It's actually like Vaseline. It takes off ALL my makeup: powder, liquid foundation, mascara, eyeliner etc. It's makes my skin feel soft and silky even when I wash it off. It looks like it could make your skin look really oily but it balances your skin out once it's washed off. I paid $55AUD for this so I'll buy this product again, but just some place cheaper :|
Age: 44-55 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Love this product removes everything even the most stubborn makeup and does not irritate or break out my skin. I follow with my Clarins One Step Cleanser and toner. Nice product lasts a long time as you only need a small amount. Will purchase again.
