The Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm is in one sentence a lightweight cleansing balm that melts to a cleansing oil when it is rubbed unto the skin and is used to remove make-up.

I see this as more a make-up remover than cleansing balm, it doesn’t seem to have the luxurious and skin enhancing benefits I have experienced using other cleansing balms.

The balm looks like coconut oil at room temperature and melts to the same consistency when I apply it to my face to remove my make-up. Once water is applied to the oil on the face, it then transforms into a milky emulsion that rinses off fairly easily.

It’s better than the Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser, read my review here…melting-cleanser/ However that doesn’t say much for this cleanser, its OKAY but isn’t amazing.
