Reviews for Physicians Formula The Perfect Matcha 3-in-1 Melting Cleansing Balm
People say Physicians Formula is really similar to Farmacy.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!
I am new to the make up removing balms, so when I received a sample of one in my monthly make up subscription box I was hooked....While I loved how the balm emulsified and turned into an oil in my finger tips before I applied it to my face, and even though it was oily- my skin is dry, it rinsed off in warm water with no problem... The price of a full size of that particular balm was well over $22 plus dollars! Then I checked on Amazon, and read a review about this balm❣And This balm is even cheaper in it's price on Amazon, than it is in the stores in my town!!! I will be ordering more from here because that is how very much I love this product!!! It leaves my skin so soft and clean! No oily or greasy residue at all! The product that was so much more expensive than this wonderful substitute is GREEN CLEAN MAKE UP MELT AWAY BALM from FARMACY❣
This is an amazing product. I got Farmacy Cleansing Balm in my Ipsy monthly gift and loved it, but it’s super expensive. Luckily, I found online that this Physician’s Formula Cleansing Balm is a good cheaper substitute. It smells great and doesn’t leave your skin greasy. I’m thrilled.
Thoroughly, yet gently, removes waterproof mascara!!!
I'm completely impressed with this remover. I purchased it specifically to remove water proof mascara without damaging my lashes. The only other product I've found that's as effective as this one is Farmacy Green Clean balm. I'm absolutely thrilled that this product from Physician's Formula is so comparable in quality. It's the same size, and I can purchase about three of these while I'm getting one from Farmacy. It's priced significantly lower than any retail store. I love the idea of the included applicator. I don't need to reach into the jar and contaminate the remaining balm or waste a bunch under my fingernails. The jar looks lovely by my sink. SO delighted with this purchase.
It's okay, but different
I read the reviews and I was a little unsure about purchasing. However, I did anyway. Here's a comparison to other cleansing balms and what most of us are used to when it comes to cleansing balms. Scent: has a scent, but it shouldn't be a big factor of purchasing. Scents can irritate the skin. Texture: Different than Farmacy's or Banila Co Clean it Zero 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm (solid, but melts once it's in your hands or face). It's more running and reminds me of a gel,goop face mask. However, it has a little moisturizing feeling rather than that melting feeling you get from the brands I mentioned above. It washes off well, but has a different way melting into the skin. You'll want it to sit for 20 seconds before rinsing. Ingredients: the ingredients looks good: matcha. Price: good deal. Buy again? I am happy I tried this cleansing balm. I am not fully sure I'll purchase again. It wasn't a wow product for me. Maybe it could be for someone else.
Purchased to Try Instead of Farmacy Brand
I have been a loyal Farmacy face balm user and wanted to try this to see how it compared. It's almost exactly like the more expensive product. Works great.
Cake Face Begone
Okay so I had gotten a sample size of the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Balm in my Ipsy Bag. I liked it but I wasn't in love with it because it left a really greasy feeling even after I had washed my face wash and it didn't do a great job taking off my mascara but it did a good job of removing everything else. I was interested in finding a new makeup remover balm and came across this one. The price was right and it seemed like a dupe for the Farmacy one so I bought it. LET ME TELL YOU!!! This thing is the bomb!! I love how it doesn't have a strong smell, it doesn't leave a nasty greasy mess on my face and it gets everything off even if you use the smallest amount!
Not better than Farmacy but okay
I bought this as an alternative for Farmacy. It cleans pretty well for foundations or bronzer, but I will need extract 15-20 secs if i have eyeliners or just separate makeup removing oil. It emulsified very quickly which is a plus, but it does give slightly drier after feeling than Farmacy’s but I would still get it over Farmacy for the price difference
Best drugstore makeup balm
This is the perfect dupe if you've tried the Farmacy makeup removing balm. I've tried a few others from the drugstore, and this one is my favorite. I was sad to see it was no longer stocked at my local store, but I finally found it on Amazon!
Better than the high end one by farmacy
best dup for the high end one by farmacy. I will repurchase. Melts makeup off really well.
Not quite the same consistency as Farmacy’s Green Clean but it works great and the $30+ price difference will make you forget all about Farmacy.
