Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleansers don't get any better than this- well maybe once in a BLUE MOON Background: Lining up at Mecca Cosmetica counter I noticed the sales assistant open up this large round tub of Blue Moon and insert a spatula to carve out a scoop of babyblue crystallised balm. The site of this balm made me call out to her to ask her to make up a sample for me too. Packaging: large square box with gorgeous large Round 100gram tub. Product: A little goes a very long way! You may either wash your face first or use it on dry skin. It also doubles up as a serious make up remover. As you skim your fingers across the top layer of the balm you will note the balm picks up an oil-like film. After spreading the balm around my face in circular motions, I was shocked to notice I didn't even make a dent in the product! The product spreads like oil but won't make your skin oily (don't stress oily skinned girls!) the product literally warms in your hands and melts into your skin. Minimal water is needed to wash off the product. After washing the product off my skin feels the best it has EVER fry after a cleanser- supple, plump, smooth and incredibly healthy looking. Price: $72. Yes, I know it may seem steep and I had no Intention of every buying it when I first asked for a sample as I thought the price was exorbitant. However, once I tried the sample, the price was great value! Comparison: Eve Lom cleansing balm. I love this one more as this one has little fragrance and the colour is pretty cool. Eve Lom is also amazing but the scent is strong and may put some people off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for dry skin Most expensive cleanser I've ever bought, but switched to this as it's the only thing that's felt gentle and hydrating on my dry, flakey, red, patchy winter cheeks. Definitely a good choice for dry skin types. At the same time it's a strong enough cleanser to not leave me with blocked pores in my black-head prone areas, though I wouldn't say it actively clears blackheads or acne. Has a lovely luxurious feel to it also + I like to leave it on as a mini mask to soften the skin. Haven't tried it with a muslin cloth because it works well enough for me as is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's worth the hype Over a period of time I have evolved with my beauty routine. From being an (excessive) extremist for many years I have now become a minimalist. Due to the minimalist choices I make, I try and stick to multitasking products. Omorovicza balm gave me huge pimples. Eve Lom is wonderful. But I would always choose Blue Moon for number of practical reasons. I have loved YSL and Lancom balms in the past. However, BM is by far the best. Texture. Just divine. I use the Eve Lom muslin cloth to wipe off the product while I am in the shower. No special techniques needed. Generous quantity. The tub will last for good 2-3 months. The effectiveness. Never fails. Removes every trace of makeup without having to work hard on your skin. The end results. skin feels fresh, soft, plumped and also makes facial muscles relaxed. And also I take pleasure in recommending the product to others as it truly works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hydrating, yet not great at removing make up I bought this to change up from my usual Eve Lom Cleanser. I was hoping it would work just as well. Sadly no. I found it irritated my eyes and didn't remove my eye make up anywhere near the same as the Eve Lom cleanser. It did however hydrate and make my skin feel soft after use and I did like the fragrance and lux feel to it. But I still haven't loved it enough to finish the tub. I wont be buying this one again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WANTED TO LOVE THIS When I heard about about this cleanser it sounded like everything I wanted for my dehydrated skin. Unfortunately after getting a sample and using it once it broke me out and left my skin feeling very sensitive almost instantly. I have extremely sensitive skin and not much works but I wish this had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple in my skincare routine I've been using this for months now every morning. I do have combination skin and sometimes it is hard to find a good balance with the products I use. This really hydrates and exfoliates my skin just enough so my makeup has a good base. I also look forward putting this on my face. The experience is very luxurious.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but there is better I was going to buy as i previously tried a sample and enjoyed it. Upon trying again, it stung my eyes and really had to use a damp cloth to remove any reside and make up. Don't recommend to buy especially if you want a no fuss cleanser

Can this double up as cleanser AND moisturiser for someone who's skin isn't very dry and just needs a light moisturiser?

Asked by: Aylinm
Hi there! In theory, because this is a cleanser that leaves your skin supple and nourished, yes. However, I would still recommend a moisturiser to ensure that your skin won't have an adverse reaction (overproduction of oil, breakouts, flakey skin etc) to losing its moisture supplement. Maybe grab a sample from your closest Mecca and test it out for a week or chat to their skin specialist if you're set on having a dual system.

Could this be used as your first step oil cleanser in a double cleanse?

Asked by: RachelR88
That's exactly how I use this cleanser, it does have that consistency similar to an oil cleanser but far less messy. I follow up with the purity cleanser from philosophy! Xx&nbsp;
