Love this stuff! No need for a separate eye makeup remover anymore. The cleansing balm is super thick and feels kind of slick going on, so you definitely need a washcloth to clean your face (balm usually comes with an organic cotton washcloth). It's pretty expensive, but it goes a long way. You only need a small amount each night. It even got my Halloween off in no time. ...read more

This absolutely deserves the #1 spot in best cleanser! I'm on my third tub, and use it every night to quickly and easily remove my makeup (including stubborn eye makeup). It's excellent for sensitive skin, and is fragrance-free. I don't add water to emulsify it -- I sometimes find that makes my skin feel a little dry -- instead, I apply it to my dry skin over all my makeup, massage it around until everything is dissolved, and remove it with a washcloth and warm water. It leaves my skin feeling clean, balanced, and never tight or itchy. Holy grail cleanser! ...read more

I used this stuff last night and I'm already sold on it. It has a very slight, fresh clean smell. I think it's great for sensitive skin. It comes in a pot with transparent green product. At first touch it seems like you need to apply a little bit of pressure to scoop out some product. Imagine a balm in a tin only a little easier to get out. A little goes a very long way. Once you emulsify it between your fingers it takes off make up so easily. Especially stubborn mascara. I've never had a make up remover be so gentle on my lashes. It took everything off fantastic. I just got a sample but I want to purchase the full size. ...read more

THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!!!! It just melts your make-up right off without leaving an oily film. The container is huge and lasts me over a year and I use it every night (although, I don't use it all over my whole face, just my eyes.) I'd definitely recommend this to anyone in search of a quick, easy make-up remover that washes away very easily. ...read more

I apply this all over my face and neck including over my eyes. I give myself a gentle massage and leave it for a few minutes for my face to warm up and melt the crystals. I massage again. I apply a little water to turn the product milky and give another light massage. I then remove it with a warm towel. The scent is light but nice. It does not burn or irritate my eyes at all. I'm left with super soft, plump, healthy looking skin. I absolutely love this 💕 ...read more

A solid product that melts into your skin when applied - it doesn't leave any greasy residue or film, unlike others I've tried. Super effective at removing make up, but felt gentle on my skin, and didn't damage my eyelash extensions. The price is a bit steep, but it's the best balm I've found so far and great for travelling.  ...read more
