"This nourishing makeup remover + cleansing balm gently melts away stubborn makeup and impurities caused by pollution, without stripping skin. Cleanse effortlessly and indulge your senses with this balm-to-oil formula that smells like summer! A bestseller and an Allure Best of Beauty award winner."

Claims: 

Gently melts the day away: Sunflower and ginger root oils gently remove even the toughest long-wear makeup without stripping or drying, leaving skin hydrated and silky smooth. Moringa extract lifts away dirt, grime and impurities from pollution so that skin stays younger, longer.

Naturally exfoliates. Papain, a natural enzyme found in papaya, gently exfoliates to retexture skin and reveal a youthful glow. Never harsh, it’s safe for all skin types, including dry and delicate skin.

Summer in a jar! This airy balm-to-oil captures the spirit of summer with a delicious sorbet texture and a refreshing blend of unique essential oils—lime, bergamot and orange—for an exhilarating and revitalizing experience.

Ready for travel. A unique cleansing balm, it stays solid (no spills!) until it melts into a silky oil on contact with skin, which means it's carry-on friendly and ready for travel.

Out of Ten

Lives Up to Its Claims: 10

It is the most effective and gentle cleanser I have ever used. I always do the Cotton Pad test (after cleansing, I put micellar water on a cotton pad and run it over my face, and if there's makeup left on my face I know the cleanser isn't working for me), and this product passes time and time again. It's VERY cleansing, but also extremely gentle and moisturizing. It works really well on eye makeup as well as the rest of the face and neck.

Feel: 10

I love the balm-to-oil texture! It feels so soft and so good on your skin. Rejoice, sensitive-skin friends! It doesn't sting at all, and you can rub it all over your eyes, then open your eyes, and it doesn't sting or hurt at all.

Worth the Cost: 10

In addition to removing makeup really well, the 3.2 fl. oz. will last you a long time, making it very cost-effective.

Smell:  10

It really does smell like a lime popsicle, but the scent is mild and not at all overpowering.

Effectiveness: 10

Removes makeup very well without having to scrub your skin.

Packaging: 8

When you unscrew the top of the jar, you'll see a small plastic lid with a little holder for the plastic scoop it comes with. I find this little plastic lid kind of inconvenient. I wish there was a little holder on the side of the jar (or something) for the scoop rather than having to take the little lid off each time because I always forget to put it back.

Would I Repurchase?  Yes!

I already have. No other balm-to-oil cleanser, or any cleanser for that matter, has ever worked so well for me.

What Would I Recommend Instead? N/A
