Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes EVERYTHING Off! I bought this just last night because I was out of my normal makeup wipes. I used this and fell in LOVE. I wear waterproof liner and mascara and it normally takes at least 2 wipes to get everything off. About a nickle-sized amount of this balm got everything off. My skin felt moisturized and no sticky or heavy feeling. Just clean and hydrated. LOVE LOVE LOVE

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was never a fan of cleansing balms because they tend to be a bit messy and always left makeup on my face. This formula is the exception to that rule. It takes off every bit of makeup and rinses away. My skin is so much smoother and clearer after using this. I used a cotton pad with some micellar water on it after I used this balm, and the only thing left behind was a small trace of mascara. It got every bit of my foundation, concealer and eyeshadow off. I highly recommend this product. I just wish it was bigger for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is (in my opinion) a dupe for It Cosmetics Melting Cleansing Balm. The formula is very moisturizing. It isn’t a harsh cleanser. It’s a very smooth formula and I LOVE that it comes with a spatula to apply the balm to your skin so you don’t have to stick your fingers directly into the product. It glides over my skin and helps keep from tugging when cleansing. My face feels hydrated and cleansed after using it. The scent is EXTREMELY light, but clean. Overall, this is one of my holy grail products. Hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product for me Really does melt makeup right off ...even though I use full coverage, water proof make up. I only buy cruelty free brands with the additional caveat that they not be sold in China because they require testing on imported items. Physicians Formula meets my criteria. It us lighter than my orevious brand and I like that, too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I started using this product by itself to see how I liked it. I’d put it on to remove my makeup and then just use some warm water to rinse it off. I then switched about a month later to use it and double cleanse instead. This first and then the CeraVe face wash. It made me like this product MUCH better. It’s pretty gentle on my eyes for the most part, but like all face products occasionally it’ll get onto my contact lenses. This sucks but that’s my own fault for not taking them out every night. I don’t find the fragrance on this product to be overwhelming. I can’t speak on price compared to other cleansing balms, but it’s less than $20 which is good enough for me. I like it and would repurchase , but I’d like to try other cleansing calms and oils first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! This is the best cleansing balm ever! I’ve used super expensive brands, and this is just as good or better. I use this as a first cleanse because my face is oily and this leaves an oily feeling behind. I follow up with a cleanser. Do not hesitate on buying this, your face will thank you. Makeup literally melts away!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fragrance :-( I love this product! It removes Make-up wonderfully, even mascara. The biggest downside, and the factor that will keep me from repurchasing, is the fragrance/parfume. It’s in the top ten of the ingredient list, and really strong smelling. If this product was fragrance free it’d be a 5 star product for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This burns your eyes and doesn't take your make up off as well as other brands. It also leaves a cloudy film on your skin and in your eyes which doesn't wash off super easily. I wish this had less burn to it but because of the heavy scent I think that's why it makes you tear up so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go to drugstore cleansing balm. I hear it’s a good dupe for the Farmacy which is about double the cost of this. It has a nice waxy/oily texture but it doesn’t feel filmy after washing. It perfectly breaks down my sunscreen and makeup so my second cleanser can really do its job. Not a big fan of this brand as far as makeup goes, but this product has never let me down. It comes with a little spoon and the packaging is so cute and simple. Will continue to repurchase until I want to try something new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT!! I’m only now running out of this product, months upon months later, so you know a little goes a long way! I bought this product impulsively because it sounded interesting. I was amazed when it took not only melted my makeup away and then came off easily rinsed with water, but it also melts away my waterproof mascara. I have never used anything that works as well as this product for taking off waterproof mascara. 10/10 recommend and I will for sure be buying a second bottle next time I’m at the store!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have extremely sensitive skin and this is the only makeup remover product that I’ve tried so far that doesn’t leave my skin stinging and red. It took off every bit of makeup on my face as well. On top of that it has a really nice refreshing smell too

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I love a good balm that removes most if not all my makeup. This product doesn’t remove as much makeup as I had hoped. It does smell great because of the matcha but it doesn’t perform as I’d imagine. My face didn’t feel clean after using this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! Was debating on getting this or the Clinique’s Take the Day Off cleansing balm. After I did research, I chose this! It’s cheaper and works so well. I scoop a small amount of product out with the spatula it comes with, and I rub it to warm the oils, and start working into my face, focusing more on mascara. I massage my face, making sure it breaks down all the makeup. & Washing it off is so satisfying! I then double cleanse w/ my regular facial cleanser. My face feel super clean! ☺️

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had high hopes for this after watching a video review on YouTube about it. I don’t like this at all. It feels greasy on the skin and doesn’t even remove my eye makeup well. Lots of leftover mascara (not waterproof I might add!) Its a flop for me.
Date published: 2019-09-13
Rated 3 out of 5 by from its a good product but for oily skin I have tried it about 7 times I love the way my makeup comes off and it doesn't take me forever to rinse off but hours later my skin gets all dry and I have to apply lotion on like 15 times through the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This works great at removing my makeup. It doesn’t leave behind an oily residue like some other popular balms, it washes away cleanly and easily. I really enjoy the scent as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING This cleansing balm is amazing. After you emulsify and cleanse with your cleanser, ALL your makeup is removed!!! This product is the bees knees for double cleanse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time trying a cleansing balm for the double method. I use this to take makeup off and then another more intense cleanser after. While this doesn’t penetrate deep, it works very well to melt off makeup, while keeping the skin hydrated. I was afraid to use balm cleansers at first because of my oily skin but this one moisturizes without leaving oily residue. One con is that it doesn’t take off super heavy mascara or lash glue, although it’s fine for removing other eye makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I hate washing my face. It usually feels dry after. Not with Matcha 3-1 Melting Cleansing Balm. It feels soft, but very clean. My skin is smoother too

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product, but too expensive. This is a great cleanser, but too expensive for the amount you get. If I can recall correctly, you get 1.4oz. I won’t recommend or repurchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought two of these for my mom I have not tried it out before what my mom says she really enjoys it it was really an expensive now that I remember I bought two of them and I think they came to like $22 which is really nice because it has big sizes and send the product so my mom says she hasn't finished it because it's a lot of products and she really appreciates it works really nice for her and she wants me to buy her another one so I think I will within the next week or so

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love my farmacy cleansing balm but it can get expensive I was looking for a cheaper alternative and I came across this little gem from Physicians Formula I love it so far it is ultra gentle on my skin it melts away all my makeup and deeply cleans away all my impurities my skin feels clean soft and supple does not leave my skin feeling dry it feels super hydrated only problem is I wish it came in a bigger size you will go through it so fast that is why I took off one star.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just started doing a double cleanse at night and bought this product as the first step to remove my makeup. I’ve only tried it a few times, but it’s so far done a great job of melting away my foundation without drying out my face. I deal with adult acne and dryness and I’m happy to see that the ingredients on this product are not on my esthetician’s list of ingredients to avoid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product!!! I absolutely love this product! The texture, consistency, quality of the product, and scent are so luxurious. I was very hesitant to use a cleansing balm because I have very sensitive skin with rosacea and acne, but I absolutely love this matcha balm! It is the only one I want to use. I hope they never stop making it. I personally love the scent. It is gentle and subtle enough to not be overpowering and makes me feel like I’m treating myself when I use it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very drying I bought this a few days ago and I have to say as a makeup remover/ balm it does a really great job I massaged this on my face for a few seconds and right away the makeup dissolved. However. It is extremely drying, I have combo dry/oily skin and after I rinsed it off my skin felt extremely tight and stiff. Sadly I won't continue using it );

does it take off waterproof mascara ? 

Asked by: jasmine
This product is in no comparison to any other waterproof removing makeup. This stuff melts it like it nothing! This was a great purchase, great price point, and lasts a LONG time!!

Is this for dry or oily skin ? 

Asked by: Red
It’s for all skin types! I have dry skin and find that it isn’t too drying for my skin, it doesn’t feel like it has been stripped of all its natural oils. A lot of comments says it’s great for oily skin too, which I would see working great as well since it isn’t stripping and doesn’t add any oils back into the face either. Hope this was helpful!!

could I use it like moistoriser for me face and body?

Asked by: olgchv
No, it doesn't sink into skin. It definitely needs to be washed or toweled off after you remove your makeup with it.
