I slather this stuff all over my body - and have done so since I was a jr. in high school when I came across the product in theater class. It was used to take off stage make up - and the light bulb went on in my head! I've used it for 40 years. I use it on my face, my neck, on my hands under work gloves, on my legs - and everywhere else. I have a small container - a travel size- in my purse at all times to apply around my eyes. I have a big jar on my nightstand and one on my computer desk. GREAT stuff!

I was wondering if the ingredients have changed. My mother has been using Albolene Cream to remove her makeup and moisturize her skin for over 40 years. Just recently she had an allergic reaction to it -- intense itching, flaking and redness, around her eyes, on her neck and chest area. Her skin looked terribly blistered and parched. She went to the doctor twice and has been on several medications, one containing steroids. Prior to this bad experience, she thought Albolene Cream was the best thing she had ever used. Now, she's afraid to touch it.

      This tried and true product melts away ALL make up and mascara like no other cleanser. After wiping it off with a tissue, I use a toner to wipe away any residue. Your skin will never feel dry again!

      Comments about Albolene Cleansing Concentrate Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser, Unscented, 12 oz:

      I purchased this for my 70 yr old mother as a daily make-up remover. We used it together the first time. We both agreed that it was smooth and emulsified well but felt very greasy. After applying it to my face and working it in, I ran the water to get it off my hands and quickly realized this stuff repels water. It was a challenge even with soap to get the greasiness off my hands. I rinsed my face with warm water and a wash cloth and it did remove the make-up but it left a film behind. My skin felt like I had already applied moisturizer so this might be a pro if you have extremely dry skin but it just felt un-rinsed to me. Take care that you don't get it near your eyes because it leaves a film there too. I couldn't see clearly right after using it. The unscented version smells slightly bad. Perhaps the scented version would be better.

        Comments about Albolene Cleansing Concentrate Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser, Unscented, 12 oz:

        If you wear contacts, remove them first! Slather a moderate amount of Albolene all over your face and neck, wait a few seconds or minutes depending on the amount of make-up you are removing. Then wipe off with tissue, or my favorite - cotton rounds. The product not only cleans but moisturizes. It may feel a little greasy, but I remove what is left with Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel. Albolene also removes the most stubborn eye make-up, but because of the delicate skin, I use a dab on Q-tips to remove the mascara & liner. I am a high end woman who spends a minimum of 1K /year on cosmetics. This is by far the best make-up remover there is regardless of price!

                    I use Alboene to remove my makeup and then tissue it off. I usually use a foaming face wash like Olay or Este Lauder afterwards, just to remove any residue and make sure my pores are clean. It is easy to use, melts on your face as soon as you apply it, and completely and quickly removes makeup, including eye makeup, while leaving your skin soft. I've tried all kinds of makeup removers, including expensive brands, and this works the fastest, is the most gentle and thorough, and the least expensive of any I've tried.

                    I use Albolene nightly to remove all make up. I slather it al over my face and eyes and put a warm wash cloth on my face to liquify the cream. Then wipe off with wash cloth, NEVER use a tissue on your face! I've been using Albolene for 25 years and I'm now 67 and have healthy and wrinkle free skin... Thank you Albolene.

                        This is the only makeup remover I use. A little bit goes a long way. I've used it for over 10 years. Not only do I use it for my day to day makeup removal but I also use it to remove my clown makeup. Yes I dress up as a clown as my second job.
