Seriously overrated

This is an absolute joke for the price. The first time I used it I had to double cleanse with it and even then it did not even come close to removing the eyeliner from my lids, even with a damp cloth and hard work trying to remove it. I had to do a third cleanse with my usual balm and it took off the eyeliner with ease. The second time I used this I was wearing only light mascara and it struggled to remove that, I went over my eyes with a cotton ball soaked in micellar water after the cleanse and it picked up lots of leftover mascara. I previously used a far cheaper cleaning balm that is less then half the price for a larger tub, and it actually works unlike this balm! So I will be going back to that. Seriously disappointed.
