I use this as a second cleanser and as a morning cleanser. I don't wipe if off but wash it off with lukewarm water. I think LRP Toleriane cleanser may cleanse makeup traces a bit better, but this...

Not drying at all which is good. Can be tissued off with wet cotten pads (where it gives some nice cushioning which prevents irritation from the friction of the cotten pads) or rinsed from the...

It’s a great cleanser if you have sensitive skin. It’s gentle, and not drying. I use micellar water prior to cleansing because it won’t remove makeup, but it’s good for a basic cleanse.
