I have never really used a cleansing balm before, but I decided to try this as I wear a lot of sunscreen on my face and I want to feel like it has been removed sufficiently. This would be my first...

This is a mediocre cleansing balm that is way too hard and should be better formulated more like the one from La Prairie. It should be easy to scoop out of the jar and should not take any...

This cleanser comes as a complete surprise as I never thought I'd enjoy any cleanser other than a foaming soap type. And while foaming cleansers are too drying, other cream cleansers make me feel I...

I was given a sample of this at Blue Mercury. I think Estée Lauder and Clinique may be owned by the same company, so I figured these would be pretty much the same...only with the EL one being...

This is the first cleansing balm I have ever used, now I always do my nightly cleansing with a balm and a gentle soap. This balm is very nice and effective. It removes all of my makeup and leaves...

This is just as effective as the Clinique balm, albeit a slightly softer formula and slightly easier to wash off. These differences are pretty negligible however and do not make it worth the extra...

Great effective product, it does work and it melts once on your face. I would use it right before your shower as you do want to rinse with water afterwards. However, it’s horrible to use to remove...

Amaaaazing product! After I emptied my Clinique take the day off balm, I decided to rebuy it when I got a text from Douglas saying they go on sale. But unfortunately, they no longer sold Clinique’s...

I received a sample of this cleanser. Instructions say to use it as a makeup remover and to rinse off. It's very thick but easy to apply. It seemed too thick to rinse off, so I used a tissue,...

Cleansing oil is something that I have been a fan of for a long time. But this Estee Lauder micro cleansing balm has taken the cleansing oil into a whole new level. This is basically a cleansing...

Well, I try to imagine why Estee Lauder's website has plenty of good reviews about this balm, but I can't figure it out. 1. It has texture of frozen coconut oil mixed with wax. 2. It's not easy...
