Holy Grail Cleanser

Amazing, could not live without! So good at cleansing the skin and removing makeup, leave the skin feeling lovely and soft. Has really helped to heal the damage to my skin barrier and blemishes caused by this. I recently tried an alternative cleanser (not by TIL) which left my skin so uncomfortably dry, flaky and sore but after switching back to the Oat Cleansing Balm it feels so much better already! Also really lovely if left to sit on the skin for 10 mins as a mask for an extra boost. My one niggle would be with the tube as it becomes impossible to get the product out once it's down to the last third and you have to cut it open.

My favourite cleanser

I use this alongside the salicylic acid cleanser in my daily routine (I use it twice a day) and I find it’s fantastic at breaking down makeup, including waterproof mascara. I also find that it doesn’t sting my eyes when I rub it across them to remove eye makeup. I’m very impressed with it, and have repurchased it everytime I’ve run out. You don’t need a lot of it either.

Excellent 1st step in double cleanse

My skin is acne prone, especially prone to hormonal acne that comedogenic ingredients can really amplify in the worst way. I’ve tried a few cleansing balms with not great success and had instead been using micellar water as my first double-cleanse step at night, but it turned out to be more irritating than I’d thought it would be. So I decided to give the famous oat balm a try — with a little hesitation b/c sweet almond oil is the first ingredient. Well, I love it! My skin is glowing and the tone is noticeably better. It has also consistently removed even my daytime eye makeup easily, but I feel if I was to wear very heavy makeup like a dark smoky eye it would take extra effort.

A few tips from my personal experience that I find work great for me:

1. Shake it before you squeeze it out. This has eliminated the separation for me every time so far.

2. Use warm water. The water needs to be warm enough so the balm thins out and spreads easier. It also rinses off easier with warm water.

3. Rinse it really thoroughly before you move to your 2nd step cleanser. For me, it doesn’t cause or exacerbate acne if it’s thoroughly rinsed and used as part of a double cleanse.

I use tretinoin at night and find this cleansing balm to be very helpful in making sure I’m not irritating my skin when I cleanse.

Great product, awkward packaging

I do love balm cleaners because it hydrates my skin and my skin can handle it without breaking out. I like the consistency and easily melts into my face. I don't wear alot of make up so find it melts away my makeup (tho another wipe of cleanser for the eyes may be needed).

The downside is that the tube I don't think works that well with this product. I found it so hard to squeeze the product out, I have to use both hands to get it out.

It has also split a bit, which going by the reviews is quite common. Doesn't bother me much as I shake it hard and apply regardless.

There is alot of product so will last me ages. I sometimes apply just by itself and follow with moisturiser, or the HA cleanser for a double cleanse.

Good product but broke me out

It's really too greasy for me. Even when I double cleanse with a water based cleanser after using this, I get pimples. I'm 100% sure it comes from this product because I'm not using anything irritating at the moment and the breakouts occur in areas I don't usually break out. I understand why some people love this product , it's very gentle yet effective, the texture feels nice etc but be very careful if you are acne prone/ have sensitive skin!

Great first cleanser

This cleanser is great, really does his job. Removes well spf leaving the skin clean, as a cleanser for make up i don't know because i don't use it. The only reason i didn't gave 5 stars is because after taking off feels like it leaves a film on the skin. So as a single cleanser i don't think it works great, if you have oily to combination skin, but as a double cleanser works.
