I'm reviewing the new formula, which comes in a small round tub, and is a solid, balm-like consistency. In contrast, the old formula was a thick white cream that came in a pump (much more sanitary, though the packaging isn't the main reason I dislike the new formula.) I adored the old stuff--perfect for days when my skin felt particularly clogged or I wore a full face of makeup. It was like an improved version of ponds cold cream.

This new stuff, not so much. The balm doesn't seem to sink into my skin so much as hover on top of it, leaving an uncomfortable film behind that suggests its not doing its job. A swipe of toner confirms this suspicion--there's always makeup left behind when I use the new formula, so I have to use another cleanser afterwards. I do love the organic ingredients, and the tub, while small, is packed with product and compact for easy travel. I think I'll use it up as an eye makeup remover, but for the rest of my face, I've moved onto micellar water.

I would only buy this again if boots reformulates back to the original.
