(Using Since 2022) Best cleansing balm I've ever purchased! Most cleansing balms I've looked at usually contain some type of fragrance but this doesn't. The formulation is great as it easily melts on your face once applied. Even when I place some around my under eye and eyelid area there is no irritation or stinging. I would say this makes for a great budget buy as a little goes a long way. This is a must have if you're a fan of double cleansing!

I use this for 'slip' while using a guasha tool every day in the shower (I use a guasha just for improving lymphatic flow in my collarbone, neck, and face). The added bonus is that it hydrates my skin and feels great.
