I have no idea why some people say it doesn't remove makeup! Within a second if rubbing all that's left is skin! The directions on the back aren't really clear.. But I wet my face with water before using.., maybe that's why it's been working so well :) I even have acne so use heavy coverage foundation and it is no problem fir the cold cream ( and no clogging/breakouts yet!) Plus it's only like $4-5. My ONLY complaint is that it comes in a jar thing where u have to scoop your hands.. So naturally I always grab to much ( and it's bot the mist sanitary packaging ) but this tiny problem was not enough to knock off a lippie!

Uggghh...this stuff is such a pain to use! It doesn't take off all my surface makeup so can only be used as a pre-cleanser. I don't mind that, but it leaves a film on my face that is a little difficult to wash off with my regular cleanser afterwards. It does remove eye makeup pretty well but I prefer using Johnson's Baby Lotion as a pre-cleanser as it removes all the surface grime/makeup from my face easily, whereas Ponds requires more work (and more product - in my experience a little does not go a long way). It is very moisturising though so my skin never feels dried out after cleansing.

I have Normal/Combination skin and I am over 30 (cough, cough :) I am also very, very prone to get deep & painful cystic acne bumps that take months to heal & leave a hard, small ball under the skin (so annoying, I'd rather just get a regular "whitehead" that can be popped :)So, you can imagine how nervous I was to slather and "cleanse" my face and neck with Mineral Oil, Montan Wax, Ceresin and Beeswax (all ingredients in this Cold Cream). I use a generous amount, slather and rub into dry skin and then remove with a warm wash cloth. Sometimes I do this 2 times. After wiped off with the warm wash cloth, I use a toner (I do not like to leave the slightly oily film on my skin. Either I use Dickinson's Witch Hazel or Origins.Seriously my skin is cleaner, softer, smoother, more radiant and cystic acne seems greatly reduced. I cannot believe I like to clean my skin with Mineral Oil. I am shocked how well this works!!!

An oldie but goodie. This does a very good job of removing makeup and even waterproof eye stuff. My only peeve, it is quite oily and the jar is a pain, but seriously, for this price, I will live with it. After wiping off with cotton pads, I really feel that my skin is more hydrated (the thick cream acts like a mask too!). I just use a rinse off foam cleanser to get rid of the oily residue and my skin feels soft and calm. Will rebuy for sure !!

So glad I found this. I was tired of scrubbing my face with face wash to get rid of all my makeup. My skin hated me! Now, i use this before washing my face to get rid of all my makeup, allll of it. Mascara, gone, eyeliner, gone, foundation, gone. I remove the cold cream with a washcloth then wash my face with my St Ives gree tea cleanser. my skin is acne free, not tight, and my pores are smaller. I use the safeway version because its the same thing just cheaper. Will buy again and again and again!

I prefer the cucumber version of this, but ended up buying the original cold cream becase that one wasn't available and I love it! I was hesitant to buy a cream bc I have oily skin and when i saw how thick the cream is I thought it would break me out or leave a gross residue, but I am happy to report that neither is true. It completely removes my makeup and leaves my skin soft and smooth and well hydrated. It's esp good in the winter month when my skin gets flakey. 12/28/11 Revised - After using for a while I did notice that my blackheads were more apparent then before. I went to the dermatologist and she did not recommend this product for me.

Nothing works like Pond's Cold Cream. I'm telling you ladies, NOTHING. Its hard to find a product that really gets into your skin and removes all traces of makeup. Waterproof eye makeup, foundation, lipstains....this one does it all. The price is expected because of the amount of product you recieve (Around 8-9 dollars at Walmart and Target). A little goes a long way, so it will last you a long time. Your skin doesn't feel dried out, its easy to remove by wetting a cotton ball and wiping off the product, and your skin feels soft and rejuvenated.As for ingredients, I am sad that it contains Mineral Oil. This wouldn't be an honest review unless I told you guys about what is in the cream. Mineral Oil is a byproduct of gasoline and crude oil. Yup, the stuff you fill up your car with. Makes you wonder why it works so well....With that said, this is a hate to love product for me. Its easy to notice how well it works and look the other way as far as what its made out of, but its good to be conscious of what ingredients you are putting onto your skin if you are pregnant or just being aware of the products you purchase. I would love to find something that is comparable in quality but is made out of health-friendly products. I plan on trying out Alba's Un-Petroleum, and write a review if it works well.

This is an oldie but goodie! Nothing removes my ColorStay makeup quite like Pond's Cold Cream. It leaves my skin soft and moisturized -- never greasy -- and even gets off all traces of waterproof mascara. There's a reason this stuff has been around so long. It's fantastic!

HG makeup remover!! I've used this for years with no problems. I simply massage it on my skin to loosen dirt and makeup, then tissue off. I also use this to take off my eye waterproof mascara. It leaves my skin smooth and makeup free, then I follow up with a cleanser. Highly recommend, and will def repurchase forever and ever!

There was a 2 for 1 sale at Wal-Mart so I decided to buy it for my teen daughter as a makeup remover. She laughed when she first saw it because of the packaging. But her attitude quickly changed when she saw how easily it removed her inky mascara with such ease. I also use it myself as a mascara remover and it's unbeatable. Apparently Kylie Minogue uses this to moisturize and credits it with her perfect Ponds complexion. Whatever. I always figured she mositurized with Botox . Oh well. 5 stars for Ponds as a makeup cleanser.
