I used to use a liquid makeup remover or toner before washing my face (or let's be honest, instead of washing my face when I was lazy). So I was skeptical at first of how well this would work for removing makeup, especially since other cleansers I've used don't do the trick (albeit, water-based cleansers).

I bought this as part of a 10-step K-Beauty routine for double cleansing. It is the first step of my routine and possibly the best! It feels great to massage in this oil-based, buttery cleanser onto dry skin as my first step. I can massage it gently around my eyes to remove my makeup no problem. Then I follow-up with my water-based cleanser (Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce) and the rest of my routine. When you rinse this cleanser off with water it emulsifies beautifully, but I find that it's easier to rinse it once and get the rest off with a water-based cleanser.
I get dry skin due to psoriasis, and I believe this helps keep my skin moisturized to stave it off. Not only that, the appearance of my pores seem to have improved a bit through regular use and I no longer need to use makeup remover wipes or waste cotton pads to remove my makeup! I've had this product for 2 months so far and still have at least 1 month to go (though I might be using too much!).
