Really great for those full-faced makeup days. The balm melts into an oil when mixed with the heat of your fingertips. The tub is huge, and when you only use the tiniest little bit, one lasts ages.

I gifted this to 1 of my best friends after a makeup artist told her it's 1 of the best makeup removers in the market. I got to try it out when I slept over at her house and forgot my trusty Biore makeup wipes. I only used the tiniest amount and it was able to effectively remove all traces of my makeup, including waterproof eyeliner. I wiped the residue with tissue then double-cleansed with my facial wash. I thought all was well until I woke up the morning after with 2 huge pimples right smack in the middle of my forehead. Sigh. My friend uses it everyday and she wears heavier makeup than I do but it doesn't break her out as she's not acne-prone, anyway. I suppose this isn't for the sensitive, acne-prone ones.

I bought this based on my love of Clinique's Take the Day Off for eyes & lips. In a way this cleanser makes me feel back in the 1950's when women took their makeup off with cold cream, given the thick consistency. It will become milky when water is added. If you're not careful, you can easily add too much water, so only use enough to dampen your hands. Unfortunately, this product still leaves a layer of makeup on, so that I have to follow up with a second cleanser or some micellar water. This could be because I use a lot of waterproof products & setting sprays (I live in a very humid area). While I bet this is fine for really light and/or powder products, it just doesn't cut it for liquid or waterproof makeup. There are a lot of better options out there for way less money.

Makeup removers and remover wipes have always been a fail for me. Either they don't work well enough or they irritate my sensitive skin, especially around my eyes. This cleansing balm is the love of my life. I slather it on! It's solid in the jar and melts instantly on to skin. It feels like oil once it emulsifies but it's not 'greasy,' just very emollient. I apply a hefty amount (probably more than I need to lol) and gently massage it in, then I remove with a clean damp, warm washcloth. My skin is so soft afterwards. The I follow up with a cleanser because I have oily and acne prone skin. This truly gets ALL of your makeup off with ease and does not irritate my skin or eyes whatsoever. It's a bit pricey but it's so worth it and one jar lasts about 3-4 months for me. I will use this forever and ever. I actually like the jar. I scoop it out with a plastic cosmetic scoop or the back of my fingernail (freshly washed hands of course). The balm is so thick that it would not work in a tube or pump.

Bought a regular sized jar and got a mini travel sized as part of a gift set. That's a lot of product! Luckily I do really like it. I usually scuff off the equivalent of one pump of another cleanser with the side of my finger, distrubute between my finger tips and gently massage the excess onto the cheeks, chin, nose and forehead and then go for the eyes with the melted oils on my fingers. Smears eye makeup around pretty good, so you really end up looking like a racoon! I follow with a Dove Cleansing Cloth that doubles as a second cleanser and something to wipe away the grease and black makeup residue that I don't want staining my towels.Gentle on my eyes, and I wear contacts!No added scent, no artificial colours. Only downside is the packaging allows for contamnation if you aren't careful or if you go in for a double dip.I would buy this again, but I would also like to try the other products in this line.

This is the best cleansing balm. I am on my second jar, the first one lasted for 6 months!!! It is very gentle and effective with removing any makeup and sunscreen. Also, it is good for massaging your face.

My holy grail cleanser! I have tried many other cleanser they are either sting my face, not doing a good job or not comfortable on the face, This cleansing balm feels very comfortable when massaging on the face, and for people think it leaves a film residue I would suggest don't rinse it off with water but try wipe it off with a warm damp wash cloth.

I read such rave reviews and really wanted to like this so I went ahead and bought it. First off, I don't think the packaging is very effective as it gathers dirt so easily from you dipping in your makeup covered hands when reaching for a second piece of balm. After 2 days I had to wipe down the inside because it had collected so much grime from my mascara and foundation. Secondly, I don't think it was effective in removing eye makeup. I really had to scrub to get it off. Third, it left this oily residue on my skin afterwards (which didn't matter because I always double cleanse but for people who only have time for one cleanse, this isn't great). The last but most important thing is that every time I use this product, it breaks me out! I always get little patches of acne from it on the areas I focus on most when I cleanse. I wasn't sure if it was the product so I stopped using it and the mild acne went away and as soon I started using it again, I had good amount of pimples on my face the morning after. I discussed this with my best friend who is a clinique consultant and she said that the same thing happens her with this product and a lot of customers have returned it for the same reasons too. I really wouldn't recommend this. I would recommend something like the Shiseido cleansing oil instead.

I really wanted to like this but it was not for me and my rather dry 46 year old skin.The smell reminds me of crisco.It did not remove my non-waterproof eye makeup and left a film on my face.The final straw was the breakouts. I have not had a break out in probably years.This was an all around fail.

Amazing at removing all makeup. I tried The Body Shop's cleansing butter but found it was stinging my eyes. With this one, I can remove waterproof mascara and eyeliner without it stinging at all and you don't need to rub hard at all. It's really easy to use and a little goes a long way. If you have dry skin, this will moisturise it but won't make it greasy. I was skeptical about spending so much on it (AU$55) but I use about a pea-sized amount each night so this tub will last me a very long time and it is very much worth my money! Would highly recommend.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
