Bomb af...not bad...What I like is that it's not a liquid you need to soak a cotton ball with and still end up rubbing and tugging your eye area in order to remove your makeup; it's a balm with some "body" and "slip" to it that allows you to gently massage your eye makeup off with your fingertips (you'll have a difficult time rubbing around a standard liquid remover with your fingers and still keeping it put on your eyelids)....And aside from this one time I failed Clinique's Take the Day Off Balm because I went on vacation and thought I didn't need it but then realized it was my rock and safe harbor and Tokyo-drifted to a nearby department store frantically searching for a tub like a crazed lost soul, much like Ser Jorah, I'll (otherwise) never falter again.

V nice...so good...For everyone writing negative reviews about PEG being in this product here's a dose of reality: Polyethylene is used in a variety of skin care and beauty products, including eyeliners, mascara, eye shadows, eyebrow pencils, lipstick, blushers, face powders and foundations, as well as in skin cleansers and skin care products, because of its versatile properties as an abrasive ingredient, adhesive, binder, bulking agent, emulsion stabilizer, film former, oral care agent and as a viscosity increasi...I'm super prone to small break outs and I could tell after a couple of days of using this balm that it's not a good option for me long term, but it breaks my heart because this balm feels SO GOOD when you use it.

love it...it's ok...Also, I find it does leave a bit of a residue if you don't use a washcloth to remove it, but nothing more than most cleansing balms and nothing a little micellar water can't take off....You won't really see the results until after you wash the balm off with warm-to-hot water and a wash cloth, but this really removes every bit of make-up from your face and converts to a cleanser once water hits it.

in love...so good...But after using this balm (it's really more of a balm texture than a traditional cleanser) I must say that it's the only thing that's ever made my skin feel so nice and I have truly noticed a difference in its brightness....Eve Lom's original cleanser is the ONLY cleanser I've ever used that - after you have cleansed off all of your sunscreen, foundation and other makeup - the muslin cloth rinses completely clean with no residue on the cloth.

love it...it's ok...The problem is, every single one I've tried leaves a greasy film on my skin and requires me to use a second cleanser to remove it (the double cleanse method)....Plus - softening, cleansing, gentle, soft-fragrance, leaves skin silky, gets 95% of my makeup off Misses - if used for spot removal can create a slip area and then the makeup is trying to remove itself all day Minus - That 5% of make up at the eye line without excessive work and product, this is usually not an issue for me but might be for someone looking for a perfectly clean eye after heavy make-up each night.
