This is described as a balm cleanser, but it looks and feels more like a lotion. I principally use this to get my long-wearing Essence mascara and eye shadow off, since I have a bit of a time with...

Hmmm I’m on the fence with this one. I’ll use it up but don’t think I’ll repurchase. I thought it would be like an oil cleanser, but one that travels better than a pump pack of oil. It does travel...

I bought this as a first step cleanser for traveling, because oils are tricky to pack and there’s always the risk of leakage. I usually buy the cleansing balm from Heimish, but because I love The...
