My Thoughts; 

A totally wonderful addition to my cleanser collection.
This tube of jam packed goody ingredients cleansing balm just reminds me of the consistency of my much loved Emma Hardie Moringa cleansing balm. Be warned it's damn hard to get out of the tube, unless your bathroom is fairly warm and then it leaves the tube promptly in a civilised fashion, I am talking serious muscle needed to squeeze the product out, a pot would be easier. The beauty is though, that as you only need a tiny amount this stops you being heavy handed (maybe that's just me). 
So this gloopy heap of loveliness just massages onto my face easily, softening and liquefying as I blend, until my makeup is a smudged mess, even mascara is sent packing with this stuff and it smells so good to. 
Using the cloth provided or a flannel, massage and wipe the product away.
I tend to use this as a first cleanse when I know I am double cleansing, because it is super rich I like to know I have removed every bit of cleanser residue and a second cleanse ensures this, I also always follow with an exfoliant if I use super rich cleansers (i.e. White Rabbit cleansing balm, Botanics cleanser - I loathed it and elemental). 
If you've a face full of make up then a second cleanse is always advisable, but a face without much, one cleanse with this is all that is needed, I follow with an exfoliant. 
For me the texture is perfect, my skin is super smooth and soft after use and never feels dry. 

I will certainly be using more of this, though I am tempted to buy an empty jar and decant the cleanser into it, just for ease.
