Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite cleansing balm! Wonderful smell I love this cleansing balm by Biotherm the smell is amazing and the balm is very good and hydrating for dry skin, however cleansing oils do work for all skin types it is only a matter of preference. This is the perfect first step for a double cleanse and I love that it removes all sunscreen and make up and it is much better smelling and gentler than the "total renew oil" which I found too drying and not a true oil cleanser as it uses a water base with foaming agents unlike this balm. Would defiantly repurchase and highly recommended along with cleansing milks which are equally awesome overall I believe Biotherm makes especially great cleansers. June 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by WoW! Very unique product I am sure this is going to become a bestseller. I use the cleanser as my go-to and this every now and then, but every time I use it I say to myself "Wow, I should use this more!" You can definitely tell there's shea butter in it. Very true to its description. Took me a bit to get used to it but the more I use it the more I like it. Very effective. April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it... At first I was hesitant! But after using it a few times, I LOVE IT!! My make up, even my waterproof liner and mascara, come off no problems and my face feels smooth after!! September 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great silky cleanser I love how this goes from a solid to a light silky oil. A few drops of water and its a cleansing milk for a thorough deep clean. It will be great to travel with as well. March 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by almost perfect I really liked this new cleanser however I found the initial product to be slightly difficult to remove from it's container. HOWEVER, once it was on my face I must admit it was wonderful. It left my skin feeling silky soft and totally moisturized. March 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by What's the Purpose A simple oil-based eye makeup remover works much better. This was overpriced and oily and seemed pretty useless to me. To be fair, I only used it twice. Just didn't like it. Seemed like a waste of my money. June 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by True to its description! It does exactly what it says! What really made us love this product is that other than removing face makeup it removed my and my sister's waterproof mascara super easily all we did was massage a little on our eyes and it started working instantly and didn't make our eyes sting at all! Loved it! Definitely give it a try! June 20, 2015
