I received a small sample pot of this in a bluemercury GWP back in 2019 and avoided it since there were many articles saying makeup removing balms were not good, though at the time the Eve Lom...

Darphin products seem to work really well for me, and this is near the top of the list of my favorite products from them. The instructions say to apply on wet skin, but I actually prefer to use on...

This is a treat because of the scent. I like to buy a travel size and take it on vacay with me. As a cleanser, its does the job well, but not a good value. Elemis is a similar experience but at...

I'm a big believer in cleansing balms, just love the ritual and the results. I'm also convinced that I get much fewer breakouts after starting using balms instead of milks, cleansing is just more...

If you want to try a luxurious, wonderfully scented and remarkably effective cleanser, you would be hard-pressed to go awry with this one from Darphin. It is hideously expensive - $45 for a 40 ml...

No doubt about the luxuriant aromatic credentials of this product. Unfortunately, congested pores ensued. Perhaps drier complexions would fare better?

This is an luxurious face cleanser. I was looking for a facial cleanser that remove makeup thoroughly and doesn't need to use a facial wash again like some cleansing oil. I don't apply heavy...

This is my go to winter cleanser. I like to apply the balm directly onto my face before emulsifying, using watery hands or a wet cloth to emulsify then remove. I find this works really well when...

You need quite a bit of this to thoroughly remove your makeup, and though it does smell good and feel nice on the skin, you will end up spending a lot of money on makeup remover alone.

I've been using this for about 6 months and I'm still quite unsure about it. My skin is dry/combo and some days this feels like it strips my skin. I find it a bit messy and hard to control...

For me this cleanser is the dog's doo-dahs! I use this in the evening to remove my makeup (not the eye area though, as it stings) with my Clarisonic. My face feels fully clean, but without any...

I'm not really sure what to make of this cleanser. It's nice enough but I don't think it's worth the price and there are other cleansers I've used that I prefer. I bought this in the UK at SpaceNK...
