There was a night that I went on a two day bender in Miami beach where I bounce around from club to club. I was out all night that I never washed up my makeup and just reapplied. By the third night I had to wash it off. I went to Walgreens and picked up some Albolene because I didn't bring any of my hundreds of products that I use for my PM routine before bed. I was blown away how effective this makeup remover cream worked on my face. It took all the makeup that was caked on my face for those two days. Not only that, I was starting to break out from not washing and after using it for the next couple days, the flair up went away. It worked incredibly well as a moisturizer cleanser as well. I have never been happier to leave all my stuff at home on accident. Albolene is my one stop product for all of my PM routine needs for cream makeup remover. It worked Shockingly well.

I'm a fan of Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, and I figured I would try to save a few bucks and use this as a dupe...it's not a dupe. It's messier, greasier, and harder to remove than the Clinique stuff. I always make sure to double cleanse with a foaming face wash after using this but I never quite feel clean afterwards, just greasy. I'd rather not feel that way after washing my face. The only reason why it doesn't get the lowest rating from me is because it does remove makeup pretty darn well. I'm just not a fan of the grease factor.

This is a HG product for me. I have very dry and sensitive skin, pron to rosacea and acne. This stuff is a godsend. Removes all make up and leaves my skin soft and supple. Doesn't break me out. And VERY cheap.

This has changed my skin! I was suffering from adult acne and using harsh cleansers that dried out my skin, but albolene leaves it nice and soft. I just smear some of this on my face, rub it around and remove with either cotton pads or a wet microfiber cloth. I'll usually follow up with a gentle cleanser, like CeraVe hydrating. My breakouts have significantly reduced and my fine lines have diminished because my skin is no longer dehydrated. HG

I have very sensitive skin that is prone to being very dry. I'm not acne-prone, but I do tend to get clogged pores if I use the wrong product. With that being said, I really like using Albolene as a cheap alternative to more expensive and luxurious oil cleansers and cleansing balms. I'm using something from Whole Foods with Rosehip oil and Meadowfoamseed oil in it, but it's so expensive for a small bottle. Albolene is so cheap for the amount you get. I slather on a very tiny amount onto my face and massage it in for a good minute. I use a warm washcloth to wipe all my makeup off. I then use a gentle foaming cleanser to get all the residue off. For me, the moisturized feeling at the end is what makes me reach for this more than any of the other cleansers. It gets all the makeup off and leaves my face not feeling stripped and/or dry. This is important for dry-skinned gals like me. I would repurchase this again and make sure I have a tub of this in my cabinet at all times. It's better than Vaseline in my opinion (although it's very similar in terms of ingredient formulation).

I finally decided to try this out because it's cheap and comes in an enormous utilitarian tub. I usually double cleanse and I've used a variety of oils (work well, v. messy), Pond's cold cream (works well, stings my eyes a bit), the Body Shop's chamomile balm (works ok, too expensive for its efficacy), and the Clinique Take the Day off Balm (my absolute fave, expensive for how fast I go through it).The Albolene looks and feels like Vaseline (and consists of a lot of Vaseline) but is somehow more elegant and creamy-glidey than actual Vaseline. It takes off my makeup (in conjunction with a damp washcloth) very easily and gently, with only the very last dregs of eye makeup that no cleanser completely eradicates left. I have oily, acne-prone skin and it hasn't broken me out (I usually follow up with Cetaphil, but have used Albolene on its own with no breakouts too).My main gripe is I do not like the idea of petrochemicals, but this is a very good & economical product if you're cool with 'em.ETA: this is messing with my lashes. They've been wimpy and thin since I've started using Albolene! Gonna have to switch.

HG make up remover, hands down the best I've used. This straight forward product is cheap and comes in a big tub. With clean hands I take a bit and rub it all over my face. I work it in for a minute. Then I use a baby wipe to towel it off. I use a baby wipe because it's damp and disposable. Foundation gone, long wearing lipstick gone, waterproof mascara gone in one wipe. My skin is left soft and hydrated all in about 2-3 minutes. They should call it Cheap, Easy and Fast.

$9.88 @ Walmart Clear with NO scent at all and looks like vasaline minus the stickyness. It feels more like coconut oil, it's a solid but turns into a liquid with the warmth of your fingers. It removed all of makeup, including mascara, easily and thoroughly.A tiny tiny bit goes a long way.Coconut oil removes all makeup in the exact same manner.8-20-16Still using it but only because I don't want it to go to waste, it doesn't remove ALL makeup like I thought as a cotton round will still take off plenty of residue left behind.

I love it, gets rid of everything in my face without trouble. Specially makeup.Update: I'm gonna have to knock down two stars after using it a little bit more regularly and realizing that it breaks me out. But I still use it as a lubricant to shave and it does a pretty good job at that.
