While it may be a bit spendy, this cleansing balm is by far my favorite of all the cleansing balms I've tried. It effortlessly removes all traces of makeup and SPF, and even though it's not technically for eye use, it really does get off all of my mascara and shimmer eyeshadow beautifully. My favorite way to use this is as the first cleanse of a double cleanse. Massage into dry skin and just rub rub rub for a few minutes. Then, rather than add water to emulsify and rinse right away, i let it sit for a lovely mini mask while I brush my teeth. Clean AND hydrated skin for the win!!!
