Most Helpful Positive Review A miracle product
I followed the instructions on the video and I've been using this product for about a week and I have been getting compliments from everyone. I apply the product, it only takes a little bit. Then I rinse it off and my face is clean. My skin has a vibrant appearance even before I apply my night repair formula. I love this product
Most Helpful Critical Review good cleanser
It is a good cleanser, but I don't like the smell. It's so strong for me. I used to use Verite LightLotion cleanser as a morning cleanser, unfortunately, Estee Lauder stopped making it. Seems Verite light lotion didn't bring enough profit to the company.

My only regret is not buying this sooner. This magical balm melts into your skin leaving it clean, soft and feeling hydrated. My skin looks and feels healthier. A very little goes a very long way! I use less than a dime sized amount and massage it into my skin for about 2 minutes. It removes all traces of my foundation. I'm not sure why some reviews say it takes a lot of the product, as it basically liquifies when it touches your skin.
Pamper your skin this winter!

I use in winter. Skin feels soft not weathered in cold air. Simple for travel.
Completely removes makeup
Coco from Portland. OR
I found this balm can remove blackhead. Gentlely message it on your nose for 3-5 minutes and the result is satisfactory.

I like this cleanser very much.
Gentle and Cleansin
PennyW from Las Vegas, NV
I love this cleansing balm! My skin tends to be a bit on the dry side (plus living in the desert doesn't help!). This balm cleanses my skin thoroughly and is moisturizing and gentle. It rinses off fully for nice, soft, and clean skin!
Love it! But…
KT :) from milwaukee, wi
I actually really love this balm, it takes my makeup off quickly, doesn't burn my eyes, and I never get that cloudy eye thing after I use it…
The ONLY downside that I've seemed to have is that the packaging makes it sooo hard to open the product! I have no idea why and it is so frustrating because I just want to be able to open it right away and get my makeup off but I spend like 10 minutes trying to get the lid off most times because it gets stuck LOL
Other then that tho, if it didn't have this weird lid issue it would be 5 stars! This product is wonderful and makes my skin feel amazingggg!
Nor Irritating but requires patience
HB from New York, NY
This cleansing balm is not irritating to the eyes at all which is excellent (although on a bit of oily side). However, it does take a bit of patience and several repeat steps to truly remove all your makeup off completely.
Martie from Mt Prospect Illinois
This balm was a true surprise for me in the best way! My skin is extremely sensitive and I am cautious when trying something new.
This is the absolute best cleaner I have ever used! It removes all of my make up with very little effort and leaves my skin soft and spotlessly clean!
I highly recommend this product!!
MTDee from Whitefish, MT
I love everything about this cleanser except the price. It cleans my skin, doesn't leave a film and doesn't dry my skin out. My face has a healthy glow.

Perfect makeup remover
yongyan from fuzhou
It's very gentle and easy to remove makeup. I like its appearance. It's very simple.
Love This Balm
Mushroom Mom from Cincinnati, Ohio
This is the best way for me to remove my makeup. It is gentle on my not so young skin and even removes waterproof eye makeup. I am very sensitive to most cleansers. In fact,only Estee Lauder can be counted on to not irritate my skin. My skin is neither greasy nor tight after using this. I only gave it a 4 star because it is expensive and I seem to go through it rapidly.
Anne from Atlanta, GA
In the past I had oily skin but as I have aged it's become a combination. I have used the Advance Night Micro Cleaning Balm since it first came out. Since then, I have used nothing else. Makeup melts off my face, including eye makeup. My face feels and looks clean and glowing. I use a sonicare brush with the Balm. Great combination!
I love this so much!
Suestirling from Franklin, LA
When I went to an Estée Lauder counter to buy makeup the assistant used this first to wipe off the makeup I had on. I fell in love with it and have used it ever since. It smells wonderful and removes my makeup easily without me having to scrub my skin. I bought some for my 25 year old daughter and she has also fallen in love with it.
Kate from West Palm Beach, FL
This gets off my toughest mascara! And it doesn't burn my eyes like other products do! I have dry sensitive skin and it doesn't bother it either!
Love this balm!
genab from Rougemont NC
I love everything about this cleansing balm - completely removes make up without any oily residue. I love the way my skin feels after cleansing not stripped - smells great too - a very light lavender fragrance. On some night I do a 'double cleanse' and follow with the Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam.
wonderful feeling after use
g d w from amelia ohio
My skin feel so silky after cleansing . I am seeing such a improvement of makeup removal. Will always have this on hand .
Did not work
Carew from Watertown, NY
I now have to return that item and one other as my skin got so red that it took 3 days to get it to not be as red.
Love it! Really Cool!
Chelle from Lathrop, Ca
I love this micro cleansing balm, it is hassles free, mess free for me personally and so easy to apply as well as remove. I tell ya, I have caked on make up sometimes, layers of foundation, powder, bronze high lighter for my cheeks and blush. Just apply the balm to my face at first felt like, will this really work? It did, it just wiped all off, using my wash cloth and following online directions of how to use this. No residue, my face felt soft and fresh. Good news was next day, no breaks outs and no feeling oily residue on my face from the balm. I did apply a Estee Lauder moisturizer to follow the balm to help prevent breakouts for my dry to oily combination skin. I have very sensitive skin and I have to make sure to clean my face daily especially after wearing make up. Even on the days that I do not have cakes on make up, wither I use a powder on my face with blush and no foundation, this balm takes it right off. I do not think I can ever go back to doing things the old way ever again. This micro balm has spoiled me.
Lizzi from Duxbury MA
The way my skin feels as I am working the balm into my skin is wonderful. The fact that I don't need a separate makeup remover is useful. There is no stinging or tightness after soaping up and rinsing off. I noticed a change for the better in my skin after the first use. Love love love!
Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm
alice from las vegas NV
This cleanser is truly amazing and I absolutely love it! It is so silky feeling. It starts like a solid and as you massage it on your face it emulsifiers to remove all of your makeup! then add a little water to continue cleansing your face, and rinse. I love the smell, feel, and most of all how well it works to remove all the makeup off of my face.
great make up remover
YRG from California
I like how this works, feels smooth, and clean my make-up really good but sometimes I feel like I need to wash my nose with something else to better clean my pores.
SDCal from La Mesa, CA
For several months I was getting breakouts. I decided that the correct cleanser was what was needed. After starting with this I have not had the breakout problem. It smells great especially in the evening because of the lavender. Physical sunscreen is the best (EL Perfectionist is a good one) and this takes it off, and most makeup needs something like this. I use some Perfectly Clean foam purifying cleanser after the balm. In the A.M. I use just a little Perfectly Clean foam purifying cleanser in the t-zone.
DonnaY from Killen, Alabama
This is the BEST make up remover. I have dry and very sensitive skin. It takes off all your make up, including mascara, and leaves no residue. I will never use anything else again!!
