The first step to reduced redness!
I bought the whole line while it was on sale and this balm cleanser is the first step in a routine that has drammatically reduced my redness since using these products. I appreciate that it comes with a convenient spatula to remove the contents without contaminating the jar (I wish the cream came with one as well). You only need a nickle-sized amount to clean, unless you wear makeup, which I have found better removed first with makeup remover, then using the balm. Normally, I use a second cleanse with a cream ckeanser after the this because sunscreen and makeuo are difficult to fully remove. I am happy to say this balm didn't irritate or break me out, has a very light smell that doesn't linger and it doesn't sting my eyes. After the balm ckeanser, I pat in some of the toner, then the ampoule (my fave), followed by the cream and it's not only soothing, but surprisingly hydrating enough even though the cream is a lightweight gel type. I think using layers of the active ingredients really added to the efficatiousness of this line on my sensitive skin and I recommend trying more than just this balm cleanser though it's a good stand alone product, of course.
