I was using the Palmer's cleansing oil (and generally loved it) but found that it wasn't moisturizing enough for my needs. I have started using Retin-A (by prescription) and it dries out my skin quite a bit, and leaves my face very sensitive. The Palmer's Cleansing Balm is EXACTLY what I was looking for: mild, gentle, moisturizing without clogging pores or triggering breakouts. The consistency of it is slightly thick and lumpy (small lumps mind you). It is like a gel or a paste. It comes in a tub, presumably because it would be difficult to find a pump strong enough for its thick consistency. The only "downside" in my view is the tub container. It would be less messy to have a pump dispenser. Nevertheless, the product removes my makeup, is gentle on my sensitive skin, and cleanses nicely. It rinses clean, no oily residue. If you are looking for something more moisturizing than the Palmer's cleansing oil, something that is gentle on sensitive skin and won't cause breakouts, then I recommend.
I was a bit hesitant to purchase this cos of the cost, but instead of using micellar water (i have used both neutrogena & garnier) which eventually dries out ur skin, especially under the eyes.. this cleansing balm is a boon! 🤍 I use estee lauder Double wear foundation and smashbox concealers and this is the first time i found a product that does the job without pulling the joy out of my skin.. one star less cos it has it’s limitations when it comes to removing highly pigmented lipsticks, but that’s okay. I use it after wetting my face, and then follow it up with with a face scrub/wash and I’m done! Saves time, effort & your skin, given the tiny amount you need for your whole face i guess it saves money in the long run too :)
Me encanta! Súper recomendable. Solía desmaquillarme con toallas desmaquillantes, hasta que mi dermatólogo me dijo que era lo peor que podía hacer, este balm desmaquilla súper rápido, y me deja totalmente suave e hidratada la piel, sin sentirse grasosa. Me encanta totalmente y ha disminuido el tiempo en la noche en la que me preparo para dormir.
DO NOT BUY - this "cleanser" isn't cleansing at all!!! If you want a bunch of oil and grease added on top of whatever you are trying to wash off your face like makeup for example then buy it....otherwise do not buy. I had to use a different cleanser 3 times to try and remove the oil and grease that this adds on your face...terrible product!!
I was hoping for a Heimish All Clean dupe, and I like Palmers so had high hopes for this balm but I don’t like it.
It’s very soft in the jar, even in cold weather, and doesn’t have the same solid-to-oil consistency I’m used to with other cleansing balms. Then it feels like it stays about the same consistency in the jar as when applying to my face. No melting in.
I feel super greasy when using this, like I’m coating my face with soft copha or something. I don’t wear heavy makeup and it seems to remove it, but I need the double cleanse just to remove this product!
Super disappointed as I love the brand, but it fell super short of my expectations of a cleansing balm.
this is by far the best make up remover i have ever used. it melts on your face and spreads so easily and removes all trace of make up, leaving your skin very soft. it wipes away easily and doesn't hurt your eyes. it smells wonderful and it's super inexpensive.
Smells great, good texture, really melts away makeup and leaves face feeling hydrated. I really enjoy using this product. only makeup left to wipe is waterproof eye makeup as I do not like to rub into eyes too much but it's literally wiped away anyways. SO GOOD, i wish I had gotten onto the balm earlier. Huge game changer
I am a big fan of Palmers many products. I love the smell, which is why I bought it in the first place. Since then I have used their oils and lotions and they work well for what they are advertised. A great value for the budget conscious.
Most cleansing balms break me out. I have been using this now for 2-3 weeks, and no breakouts yet. It has a very strong scent which some people might not like. I personally do not mind. it cleans makeup effectively.
Es muy bueno quitando residuos de maquillaje! Recomendado, creo que también me esta ayudando a recuperarme de las manchas de acne que tengo. Es difícil decirlo porque uso muchos productos pero definitivamente es bueno :)
