This balm is the most excellent thing I’ve ever used. It takes your makeup off so easily. You just rub the balm into your skin and it literally melts away any makeup that you have on. I don’t know how I ever managed without it. Definitely a new part of my skincare routine permanently now.

I am in my late 30's/early 40's with normal, light tone skin and brown eyes. My hair is black, normal with fine texture.
Love this balm! It is quick and easy to use so perfect for when I'm in a rush and want to take off the majority of my makeup at once. It takes of heavy eye makeup without leaving any trace of mascara or eyeliner, all I have to do is rub it on my face and eyes and wipe away with a flannel. It leaves my face soft and smooth. It has an oily texture which I was worried about as I have oily skin but it didn't bring me out in any spots . It's expensive but you get a lot of product

I am in my late teens/early 20's with acne/problem, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is blonde, dry with fine texture.
I was a bit dubious about putting something so thick and oily on my skin havin never used a cleansing balm before but I wouldn’t use anything else now. Takes off all my make up including mascara with minimal effort. Leaves my face feeling lovely and soft too!

Admittedly this is the first cleansing balm I’ve ever used but was pleasantly surprised!
I have combination skin so was concerned this would make my skin feel oilier- how wrong was I! Literally dissolved my foundation AND waterproof mascara with minimal effort and washed off leaving my face feeling super velvety! I did however do a second cleanse just to make sure there was no residue but this product is definitely a winner in my eyes!

Absolutely love this product that’s my makeup off so quickly couldn’t recommend it more! Bought is on a bit of a whim but it’s honesty the best thing I’ve ever bought definitely won’t be using makeup wipes again!

I use this balm every night to remove my makeup before I second cleanse. It feels lovely to use and melts off makeup effortlessly, leaving my skin feeling clean and moisturised. I am on my second tub of this now, having tried a few similar products.

This stuff really works! Perfect to remove even the heaviest of makeup, I massage in and wipe away with a hot muslin cloth to get rid of all traces of the day. I'm not usually one for this kind of formula as I suffer with combination, (mainly oily) skin, but this doesn't leave that oily film feeling, and instead leaves clear skin. The solid formula also makes it great to travel with as you don't have to worry about it leaking! Will be purchasing a new one this weekend in readiness for my holiday!

I love love love this make up remover - it easily removes hard to budge eye make up and build up of product on the face. The application is lovely, turning from a solid balm to a skin enriching oil when is contact with the face. Simply smooth over the face and use some cotton pads to remove the product and make up. Will only be using this daily from now!

I think this is overpriced for what it is. It is a good cleansing balm but so are others that are more affordable. I prefer using the body shops chamomile cleansing balm and the oil version too. They work just as good. The packaging of this is heavy. I got this because I thought a solid balm would be good to travel with. But just weighs too much and is bulky.

I am in my late 20's/early 30's with combination, olive tone skin and brown eyes. My hair is black, combination with normal texture.
I prefer cleansing balms and oils over other types of cleansers and so far this is my absolute favourite. It's an absolute pleasure to apply as you massage it in and it turns oilier as you massage. It totally gets rid of the most heavy eye make up without any discomfort to the eyes. After washing it off with a warm flannel it leaves your skin feeling very clean and super soft.
My only gripe is that I wish the tub was actually a bit smaller as it takes absolutely ages to get through and my product has started to smell slightly odd as I near the end of the pot.

I did really like using this product to take off my makeup its really easy to use, you just rub it over your face as it melts your makeup off then all you have to do is take a makeup wipe or a flannel to remove the rest of your makeup. Although, I wouldnt buy this product again as there are much cheaper dupes, one would be coconut oil, you can get a much bigger jar of coconut oil for £5 and the clinique one is smaller and more expensive and the lush ultra bland cleanser does the same thing and is £7.

One of the better cleansing oil balms I have used. A little goes a long way and really does remove the most stubborn of mascaras and eyeliners. It melts instantly between the palms of your hands and your makeup just glides off. My only niggle is the lack of fragrance. You also get a lot of product for your money but Clinique also give great tester pots.

This product is my favourite part of the evening routine! The texture is smooth, soft & creamy and melts with slightest of touches.A little goes a long way, one scrap around the edge of the pot normally does the trick - you will see your makeup literally melt away leaving no residue after rinsing.The price you pay for a tub is more than reasonable considering the performance of the product.
