This product is just ok. It didnt remove *all* my makeup. I used a micellar water afterwards and still got little traces of makeup off my skin after using this balm. This balm is extremely oily and it leaves a residue on the skin so a second cleanser is a must. To be honest you might as well go buy a bottle of oil from the grocery isle because it would be less expensive and just as …Read more

this new version is essentially the same as dropping a few essential oils into vaseline and smothering your face with it.

that might work for you, but my skin said NO.

the muslin cloth is a nice bonus, however.

I see a lot of people complaining about a residue left on their skin after they cleanse with this. Well of course there's going to be some residue! It's made from oils, and oil isn't supposed to just rinse right off with water. The whole point is for the clean oil to mix with the oils on your face, and it can't really do it unless it's actual oil. I've used two other …Read more

You know when you use an acid toner after cleansing and lots of dirt and make up comes off on the cotton wool because the cleanser did such a crappy job? Yeah, THAT! I love balm cleansers and I was really looking forward to trying this one, and hopefully feeling smug that it was cheap and effective as all the posh expensive ones. It totally isn't! Smells bad, doesn't emulsify at all …Read more

Like somebody else here, i made the mistake of buying two of these. I love cleansing oils and balms but its hard to find good, affordable ones. This was on offer at Boots for half price so I picked two up, after reading the ingredients. Well I wish I hadnt bothered.
At first glance it appears a yellow-greenish wax type substance. The smell is awful. I mean old-lady-perfume awful. It doesnt …

I've been looking for a more affordable cleansing balm than my usual Emma Hardie/Clinique combo now I'm a poor student and figured I would give this a go as it's cheap as chips and readily available from Boots. It was only £5.99 and to be honest, I think that's about £5 too much. I originally tried this as a second cleanse product and have to admit I did not like it at all …Read more

I bought two today and really wish I hadn't. Most of my reviews are pretty positive, and I wish I could be about this product. If I'm honest, it looks, feels and smells like furniture polish, and that may very well be what I use it for in the future. It's too thick - like surfboard wax. Doesn't melt easily. It's kind of gritty. It doesn't emulsify. It leaves a …Read more

This is my first cleansing balm purchase, thanks to the 25% off Cyber Monday sale at Target. (It was already inexpensive--this made it less so!) I'd always wanted to try a cleansing balm, especially heading into the dry winter weather, but I wasn't sure how my skin would react.

I've only been using it for a few weeks but I really love it. Right now I don't …

I do not like this balm as much as REN's cleansing balm. This is obviously a much cheaper alternative, which is great for those on a budget, but I think there is a difference in quality. This balm is thicker and does not come off so easily. The scent is also a bit more prominent, and not in a good way. Although this does a fine job at removing makeup, I would still choose REN's balm …Read more
