When I bought my Hope Girl Jamong Cleansing Balm I have heard so much about it. Jolse had just done a comparing video about the greatness of this one and they also sold it very cheap at the time, so I simply had to get it and try it for myself.
I am a sucker for every type of cleansing oil/balm and my skin simply love these types of products.

The packaging is really nice, it comes in a sturdy plastic jar, and also contains a spatula in the lid, which makes it really hygienic to use (no dipping with the fingers in the jar).
How to use it
Scoop some product out and massage into your hands before applying to your face, this will make the formula turn into liquid and easier to apply. Massage your face and then rinse with lukewarm water.

My thoughts on Hope Girl Jamong Cleansing Balm
When I first received this my hopes were really high and I figured this would be an amazing product. I do prefer my cleansing oils to come in a bottle and not as a sherbet form (since it takes up so much space in my bathroom (as a skincare junkie this really is a problem) and there is one extra step (massaging the product before applying it to my skin).
The smell of this one is of course grapefruit; the packaging is just screaming grapefruit. I do really like the packaging, I think it is cute and really appropriate for the product. I do find the scent to be quite strong though, but still in a fresh way and it is not overpowering my nostrils.
When applying this I do feel that it is doing a great job, in removing my facial makeup. And I don’t feel that it leaves my skin dry or irritated after using it. I have really dry skin so a lot of cleansers makes my skin feel totally stripped of moisture, but this one, leaves my skin feeling smooth and nice. It will leave a residue on your skin, but it is not too much, and since I do double cleanse anyway that is not a problem for me.
It will not sting your eyes but since it is an oil it will blur your vision for a little while, as would any oil cleanser.
This really is a cleanser I like a lot and I do recommend everyone to try it. So far I have tried three different balm cleansers and I simply loved them all.
For the claims
Well, the main claim is that it cleanses the makeup off really well, and yes it does and I do feel that it is suitable for sensitive skin as well (if you are not sensitive to citrus). As for brightening my day with its scent, well, that is mostly just fancy words, but I do love the smell though (and I usually don’t like my skincare to be scented at all). I did struggle with my waterproof mascara though and did not feel that it took that off completely.
I give this product 6/7
