Does its job

I bought this product for the first time in a travel size. I never use a cleansing balm before and changing to this routine greatly enhance my skincare experience. The only problem for me is when the product is applied around my eye area. It makes my eyes become red. I guess its my technique or maybe some ingredient is not eye-friendly. Anyway, I might try another brand till I found the one.

I might be allergic to this.
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Blackheads, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

My eyes swell up every time I use this or the liquid version. The get swollen like they would with a bee sting.
It takes the makeup off really well but I obviously cannot use it.
I am not sure what I could possibly be allergic to as it is allergy tested.

might not be suitable for oily/acne-prone skin
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin

I learned the hard way that Ethylhexyl Palmitate was no friend of mine. While the balm did a great job of removing makeup and sunscreen and left my skin look and feel clean, the Ethylhexyl Palmitate (which its first ingredient) broke my skin terribly.

I had to switch to Banila Co. Clean It Zero (the pink one, before the 2018 reformulation) and that one actually did better job (and kinder to wallet). ymmv
