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.

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

    I had very dry skin with excema patches, even in the summer. I used to use the Body Shop chamomile makeup remover and it was gentle, but still left my skin feeling tight/flaky and didn't remove all the make up. Since I swiched my skincare regimen to include Albolene, my skin is much happier and isn't left feeling dried out after I take all my makeup off. It also gets the tough products like really pigmented waterproof eyeliner. Actually, I haven't put a product on that Albolene couldn't remove. I will use this as long as they make it!

        Abolene instantly dissolves makeup, including mascara, and leaves skin perfectly moisturized after tissuing it off. Fragrance free and reasonably priced.
        Nothing bad to say about the product.

          Using this product for 35 years. Takes off waterproof mascara and all traces of face makeup. Leaves skin moisturized and supple. Great before bed. Tried all the expensive brands; sticking with Albolene.

              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.

                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!
