I have read so much about these cleansing balms and have been seriously wanting to try them. But I really like my oil cleansers , some I like way too much (yes, I'm looking at you Sandawha Camellia oil!). But, oil is my daughter's least favorite thing, so I ordered one of each flavor of these. Keeping my fingers crossed on her! And I just can't wait to give these a try.

I got this cleansing balm for my mother. She has been using it for a few months now and she loves it. It didn't dry out her skin nor did it affect it in any negative way. At the moment I'm also using it and it does its job well . So this cleansing balm definitely worked on both our skin types. That's why I'm getting back-ups since it's on sale.

Finally I can leave a review for this product that I’ve been enjoying so much in the past few months! I bought this on a whim in Seoul earlier this year because I vaguely remembered it to be a popular product. Later I learnt that this is newly formulated version, which replaces mineral oil with natural ester oil. I haven’t use a balm cleanser before this and I must say that I really like this! The balm melts so easily onto my skin without the drippiness of cleansing oils. It emulsifies easily with a bit of water, and cleanses the... Read more

Do you like better than oil cleanser?

Yes I do! I find it less messy than oil cleansers (no dripping). It emulsifies as well as my previous oil cleanser from Shu Uemura.

So glad you posted this about the cleansing balm. I am on my last couple of washes with my oil. I am getting really sick of the messy dripping of the oil, as you said. So, I am ordering the balm and stopping the drippy oil. Thanks so much, Pallechen. You are my lifesaver :)

Cleansing balms really are so convenient, especially for traveling!

Do you travel with the full-sized tub or do you decant into a smaller jar? I’m travelling for a few weeks next month and am also trying to travel light. So I’m still trying to see how to fit in the oil/balm cleanser step!

You’re most welcome, Lynda! That’s what this community is for ;) do let us know what you think about this balm when you start using it!

I've been switched over to using cleansing balms and oils for my cleanser in the morning and it's been awesome! I find that the fact that it's not foaming really helps to not over dry my skin but it still gets my face really nice and clean. This one has been awesome!

I got this as a freebie and absolutely loved it. I don't wear makeup often so this isn't something I normally use but when I do, oh my gosh, AMAZING *^*

besides from removing stubborn make-up, it leaves the skin smooth. totally this product works.

Love the convenience of this oil balm! I had always used DHC's cleansing oil, and while I still use it, this is a great alternative for when you don't want something runny that travels well to boot. It's definitely perfumed but not grossly so (it even impressed my super scent sensitive sister.) It emulsifies well and does what it should - remove makeup!

This was my first oil cleansing balm and I loved it then and I still love it now.
It gets through makeup and sunscreen like a champ and emulsifies like a dream to leave your skin ready for your 2nd step cleanser.

It's hard to change once you start with this one hehe ...

This is absolutely fantastic at removing all traces of makeup, and if your new to double cleansing i highly recommend starting out with this sweet smelling balm. It doesn't irritate/sting the eyes but it does make your vision go blurry. If you also have sensitive eyes you would probably prefer the heimish balm or the clean it zero purity

This was the first oil-based cleanser that I started my K-beauty journey with! Feels amazing on my skin and never broke me out (and I've got combination/sensitive skin)!
