I've been reading the comments and I don't know but this really worked for me. I bought it because I wanted something similar to Lancome Baume Eclat Balm to Oil massage cleanser, but that could remove my eye makeup without hurting my eyes. This worked like a charm! you can delicately rub your eyes with it and it melts mascara and eyeshadow. Maybe people didn't get result because of the way they use it.
What I do is to put a dime size amount (maybe two) on my hands and start rubbing onto my skin like a regular foaming cleanser, concentrating in my eyes. Then I take a soft tissue or a muslin cloth and wipe it out. Then I use some micellar water (I use Bioderma) or some toner in a cotton pad to wipe out the excess. It leaves my skin soft and hydrated, without redness or sore from rubbing.
Packaging is regular I guess, if you didn't get the last scoop you can always cut the tube or something. It is very hygienic because you never put your fingers in it and it provides the exact amount of product.
It isn't cheap, but it is a lot cheaper than the Lancome one and a lot more suitable for sensitive skin. Where I'm from, there is no other product similar to this.
I have bought it again and will continue to do so.

A disappointment for me. This doesn't remove makeup, despite what the packaging claims, especially eye makeup. It works better when you wipe off, otherwise just rinsing leaves a film. For me, this is OK as a morning cleanser, when I have no makeup on anyway, as it doesn't dry out the skin, but I wouldn't repurchase this. I don't really like products that come in tubes because its hard to get all the product out at the end, and there is a lot of waste.

I bought Purete Thermale One Step Cleanser 3in1 instead of the purete thermal cleansing milk. I thought it would take off make up as easily as the cleansing milk but I had to use almost 10 cotton pads and apply 3-4 times to take my make up off. I don't even wear waterproof mascara. Anyway I used a lotion afterwards to take the rest of it. It claims to tone the skin as well but it doesn't even take the make up off and leaves a film on the skin. It also brkoke me out maybe because of the paraffin.
Pros : Doesn't have parabens
Cons: It has paraffinum liquidum
doesn't do what it claims
it is expensive for its quality

I received this as part of a Vichy gift set (along with the LiftActiv 10 Serum and LiftActive night cream - which I love). I normally use Aveda Kinetics gel cleanser for my combo skin but decided to give this one a try.
It went on smoothly but didn't rinse cleanly. It left a film on my skin, probably from the mineral oil. I can see how that would be moisturizing, but I didn't like the way it felt. It also didn't fully remove my makeup. I had raccoon eyes from my water-washable mascara and eyeliner.
Overall, not thrilled. I'll give this one away.

i dont use this as a cleanser or make-up remover because im afraid the skin on my face will have another allergic reaction since it's very sensitive. however i do use it on my body. i used to suffer from back acne, and frankly i used to get them everywhere. but now that im older, i guess im just better at keeping my body clean. the acne isnt very THERE anymore. i have a few, but not much. but i am left with dark scars everywhere, especially on my back. so all i do is slather this on after my shower. in one night, you can actually see that the dark scars have faded a little. it's amazing. and i also like how it's a lotion but doesn't add to my back acne (some lotions have done that before). it doesnt add nor does it reduce my acne. it just helps with the dark scars.

I just bought this yesterday and have only used it twice, but I love it! It removed all my makeup last night before I went to bed, including eye makeup, and this morning when I washed my face, it left my skin feeling cool and calm. It was $20 for a good sized bottle, and it had a bonus 100 ml. I'll definitely repurchase!! I have VERY dry flaky sensitive skin, and this cleanser is just perfect for me! I'm also a busy mom, so I love the 3 in 1 part, no seperate eye makeup remover or toner! So really the price is excellent when you consider what you you're saving by not having to buy those extra products!

i've used up countless bottles of these and i like it a lot! it doesn't irritate or dry out my skin and takes all of the dirt and makeup off gently. very suitable for sensitive skin and i just recently got a 300ml bottle on promotion from my pharmacy so i'd say reasonable price too. i do wash it off with water though because i feel like i have to rinse my face before applying moisturizer. the only thing that bothers me are the mineral oils in the ingredients and i'm trying to find a product that does not contain any. till then i'll be using this.

I bought the 300ml on promotion at Shoppers after using a small sample given to me by a friend. It works wonders, takes off all the makeup, and leaves my skin feeling moisturized. I washed my face with just water after taking off the makeup (especially if I used a lot of eyeshadows because it smeared all over my face), and I recommend that you use a cotton pad to get the product on your face. With just your hands, you might find it difficult to remove EVERYTHING. Overall, fabulous discovery and a joy to use.

Vichy laboratories' Purete Thermale 3 in 1 one step cleanser is now my HG makeup remover. When I first got a 1 oz sample, I tossed it aside because these wipe off cleansers never worked for me. I was incredible mistaken. I wear Revlon Colorstay almost every single day and this is probably the only cleanser that I can use as a makeup remover to completely get the foundation off my face without having to re-cleanse with something else afterwards. Sometimes if I've I just use this as an eye makeup remover and it works very well for that. I don't have to keep rubbing the cotton pad on my eyes, it just instantly wipes away the makeup without having to hold the cotton pad with eye makeup remover on my eye for like 29 seconds. This really has been a stand out product and i would purchase again and again. The price tag at $19.50 is a little steep but it's high quality skin care and it really does work for me.

A nice-smelling, creamy cleanser that didn't irritate my skin or break it out. But it's not so good at removing eye make-up, particularly eye liner. For this reason I wouldn't buy it again.

I've only tried this once but i have a problem using it. When i first massage it on my face it feels so good and soothing, but then the problem started when i had to get rid of the stuffs. I tried to wipe it off but this thing is liked glue on my face, and then i tried to wash to off with cetaphil, still wouldn't come completely off. At the end i used cleansing oil to wash it away but i can still feel it on my face. My face is very sensitive so i really don't want to wash it a forth time. The next morning i woke up with multiple clogged pores on my face. I think i will make sure the cleanser can be rinsed off next time when i purchase any other ones.

I got serious about skincare in 2008 at the age of 44. I used products from the Dermalogica line for my new cleanse, tone and moisturize routine. Dermalogica was just okay and I did not want to re purchase. I had a difficult time finding a toner that did not irritate my eyes. I use Vichy Thermale Demaquillant Integral One Step Cleanser 3in1 as a toner. I don't care whether this is right or wrong it works for me. My skin is much more clean and perfectly ready to moisturize after using this. My make up remover is from the Clinique line and my cleanser is from the Philosophy line. My Vichy 3 in 1 always removes more than my cleanser does. I highly recommend this very gentle and effective product to anyone looking for a very reasonably priced product that can do it all or be used as a toner with benefits.

I love the smell of Vichy products (very yummy!). However, this product didn't perform for me. It did not make a dent in my makeup and I ended up using a diaper wipe to remove residual cosmetics. On days when I go bare face, I do think this would be a nice mild cleanser. As for toning and moisturizing, I can't attest to either claim as I had to follow this product with a wipe (which dried out my skin). Back to equate makeup remover towelettes.

This product promises to remove makeup, tone, and cleanse. Okay, first of all, it does actually remove makeup very well. Also, it leaves the eye area soft, clean, plump and non-oily. I would definetly keep using as an eye makeup remover.Secondly, as for the cleansing aspect: it does cleanse the face. However, you must rub on dry with fingers and wipe off. No water! Well, I found that my pores clogged by doing this. Also, if left on for too long or if too much product is used, it can leave face a bit sticky. So, I would not recommend as a daily cleanser. Perhaps, it is a bit too mild?? And as for a toner, I would say it did leave the skin feeling refreshed and soft. But again, a bit mild. I definelty highly recommend this to ANYONE/EVERYONE for the eye area. I believe this would also be ideal for young people with very sensitive skin. Just too mild for my 28 year old skin.

Honestly I don't use this for anything more than removing makeup on occasion and it barely works for that withing scrubbing. I'm also surprised I didn't break out in cysts considering this has mineral oil as the main ingredient(Why not just buy baby oil with how expensive this is?)
I feel this is overpriced baby oil in a cream form, I did break out abit on it, it left a film, was slightly itchy since it left a film, felt odd on the skin and generally bothered me for the whole day. Also my makeup wouldn't stay on too well well using it.
Also my face never felt clean either. 2 lippies for sorta being able to remove makeup and being quick.

I love this cleanser! It feels gentle on my skin, doesn't sting my eyes and doesn't feel irritating or tight during use or afterwards. It smells nice, too. I probably wouldn't buy the full size due to the price, but I do love the sample I have.

This didnt remove my makeup and it made my skin feel oily and disgusting afterwards. It didnt cause any breakouts. Its pricey, not worth the money.
Will not buy again

For those commenting that it clogs pores, theyre probably trying to wash it off after. Actually according to the bottle you shouldnt wash it off. I had an old face wipe that completely dried off. Instead of trashing it, i poured the vichy cleansing milk on it and spread it around. Then used the wipe to rid of my makeup. Then i dont wash it off. Some ppl are right that it doesnt remove all makeup. I had to scrub it off with the face wipe containing the milk. I find that i dont have to put alot of moisturizer after this.

I've been using this for a few years now. I have combination skin, oily T-zone, etc. One would think that putting a relatively "greasy" cleanser on relatively oily skin would be counterproductive... but I learned that what's really counterproductive is stripping your skin of its natural oils, only to shock them into overproducing them to compensate. I found that after a month of so of using this, my skin acclimated to the product in terms of its oil production. My skin is healthy and glowy and dewy looking. There is a bit of a "film," which I think of more as a moisturizer (although I sometimes also use moisturizer on top of this). Although the smell is a little more perfumey and unnatural smelling than most of the other products I use regularly, it's faint enough that I actually really like it.
The best thing about this cleanser is that you can use it without water, which is great for travel or whatever (I've been on some rugged trips where washing my face with this after a week of no running water felt like getting a 90-minute massage). Just massage into your skin, wipe off gently with a [hopefully soft] towel, exfoliating slightly if you want, and you're done. When I use it with water, I apply it straight to my dry face, massage in, then rinse with warm water and massage off some more. In this case, I only pat it dry.
