  • "This product is your new holy grail! Gentle exfoliation while hydrating the skin as the oil breaks down your makeup effectively and gently. Also can be used as a hydrating mask overnight or by being left on the skin for upwards of 20 minutes and then washed off. Your skin will feel softer and more supple after one use! just follow with the ceramic slip or any other water based cleanser after." in 21 reviews
  • "I think a lot of people use this product wrong and that is why it is definitely undervalued. When I bought this the Sunday Riley rep showed me how to use it. You use this product as a 1st and 2nd cleaner. Grab a dome size amount and rub on your dry skin. You rub the product in until it is not grainy just smooth. After that grab your clarisonic and wet your face a bit once it hits the water it gets milky and take absolutely everything off your face!! I love so much about this. I have super sensitive skin and redness and this works wonders " in 11 reviews

I received this product as a sample and I definitely recommend it. In fact I would recommend this entire brand of products to anyone. They are definitely pricey but they are worth the money.

i am in love with Sunday Riley as a brand. So much so that I felt like I needed this to be a part of my skin care regimen. Although I did like this product (i used it all up), it did not take my makeup off all of the way and thats really the sole purpose of why I switched over to this in the first place. Before, I was using Clinique's Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm which I feel works so, so much better. There is no residue left behind and my face feels completely clean and free of any dirt or makeup. I should also mention that Clinique's cleansing balm has much more product and is less expensive. I just repurchased the Clinique balm and i will never go without it again (:

This is an amazing cleansing balm with lots of amazing benefits! I am oily, but this does an amazing job at cleansing my skin and giving it the extra hydration that it needs. I e never found a cleansing balm that shows and immediacy difference right after I take it off. The blue tansy helps to sooth and clear my breakouts. The butters are super smoothing and softening. The sugar is a great natural humectant. AND a great bonus is that you can leave it on for twenty minutes so it acts as a mask. Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm

Love this cleanser!
Like I look forward to getting to use it during the day. I really like that it gently exfoliates (so I feel good doing it nightly) and doesn't cause my oily skin to over compensate. For me it's effective in removing makeup residue and daily grime, my skins feels clean and soft after use. I think it works best when used sparingly, no more than a quarter sized dollop for my whole face and underneath my chin. Docked one star for the price point, there are so many cheaper cleansers out there. My favorite part is the color, texture and smell. It's like if the ocean was a dessert.

I wish this wasn't so darn expensive. I bought a skin care box from Sephora and this was in it and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. Thinking of all the bombs that ever try to make it this once the most effective and it doubles as a moisturizing mask. There's a reason why these products are so hyped she knows what she's doing and she's making great products they are just not affordable. It's a real shame because I'm not gonna spend that much money on something that I'm basically removing right away.

This cleansing balm takes off your eye makeup and cleans your face amazing, when you're finished rinsing your face, it feels plump and soft and fresh. I'm in love. The small grains are Awesome for exfoliating but not too harsh on your skin. If you have dry skin you need this for winter. Since I've started using this cleanser I have no more midday dry patches on my face & I have a healthy glow. This is a product that does run on the pricier end but it's worth it! Definite recommended from me!!!

This is an oil-based cleansing balm. If you like using oil to remove your makeup, I would recommend this to you. It's like coconut oil where it's solidified in the container but once you warm it up, it gets liquified. It's very gentle on your skin which I like, but I have never been a fan of oil makeup remover for face because you have to wipe it away with facial cloth, and for me, that extra step is what keeps me away from purchasing oil cleansing products.

I feel like this is overrated. Does it work? Yes it does but not any better than other brands that are cheaper---I like sunday riley as a brand and i for sure feel like some of their products are worth the hefty price tag (like the luna oil) but this cream is really about the same as like belief which is cheaper and other aqua creams. I am also sensitive to that earthy smell (similar to the lotus cream from FRESH) and this is what that smells like which I do not like.

This is my cleanser of choice on stubborn eye-makeup, it removes it all while leaving the skin super supple and nourished. My skin always feels so nice, soft and hydrated after using this cleansing balm and a little bit does go a long way. It doesn't leave a oily film like other eye-makeup removers either, which is an absolute pet peeve of mine. This cleanser is everything I want in a makeup remover! It feels so luxe!

Does this balm emulsify with water and rinse clean, or do you need to use a washcloth to wipe off the balm?
