I don’t quite get this cleanser. It’s trying to be an oil cleanser/balm...but it doesn’t remove more than light makeup. And if you wear daily sunscreen? Forget it. I still need to use another oil...

Cruelty free, budget friendly and widely available oil cleanser that's perfect for double cleansing, which I do every time I wear makeup. I like the Clinique oil balm but don't see any difference...

Love this cleanser for a first cleanse. Reasonably priced and does what it should. No fragrance so safe for sensitive skin. Melts make up easily. Would buy again.

I would be hard pressed to purchase this again. It’s a nice cleanser if you don’t wear much makeup, but I usually do. It doesn’t remove long wearing foundation or waterproof mascara well. I have to...

The best cleanser I've ever used. I've been using a double cleansing method for years until I tried this. This one, very inexpensive product is all I need. It comes in a tube and has the...
