I was inspired by Fiddy Snails (and the price,) to give this cleanser a shot. I mean how could I lose for $13? I like balm cleansers and I had been using the Banila Co Clean It Zero for a long time. It was time for a change.
The box is a little beat up. This came with a mini which I used up first. I tossed the box after taking the photo. Still it’s nice simple packaging.
The jar nicely matches the box. I don’t recall if it came with a spatula (sorry,) but if it didn’t no big deal because I have tons.
This is actually a fresh jar. Because this is an oil balm it… Melts. I let it get too warm at some point before opening so there are not pristene photos for you. Sorry guys.
Here’s what Memebox has to say about this product.

COSDNA ANALYSIS only one low level acne trigger but I’m not only washing it off, I’m using a second cleanser afterward (and you should too.) So I’m not concerned about triggers.
I’m not really sure what is so special about Jeju water but I was pleased to see shea butter in the description. My skin loves that stuff.
I used this product almost exclusively for over a month now. I think it beats out my previous oil balm based on the way it rinses cleaner and leaves my skin more moisturized. I never thought my old oil cleanser was drying but on days when I switched back I noticed a difference. I give this a 4.5/5 because I love it but I’m still prone to wanderlust… I may be in the process of testing another first cleanser right now…
1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.
2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers mean!
