There are many excellent reviews on this product, on how amazing and efficient this product works. In my opinion, comparing to the many other eye makeup removers that I've used, I prefer this one. The product is filled inside a tin container, and the product itself seems very similar to vaseline. The texture is also similar to vaseline. It is not till I turned over the tin and looked at the ingredient that I realize of the reason why it is so similar to vaseline; which is because it contains petrolatum, which is what vaseline is. Comparing to vaseline, Balms Away is of a whiter colour and it is unscented.
Many of you probably uses vaseline to remove your makeup, and thus, I wanted to compare Balm Away to Vaseline. I had the same makeup on both of my eyes, and I used the same amount of Balms Away and Vaseline, one on each eye. I gently rubbed both eyes in circular motions for 30 seconds. I wiped both off with a wipe, and found the eye with Balms Away came off a bit cleaner than Vaseline. The eye with Vaseline feels a bit moist while the side the Balms Away feels a bit smoother than the other. Overall, if I were on a budget I would use Vaseline to remove eye makeup, however, the down side is, Vaseline shouldn't be used as eye makeup remover, because it can clog up the sebasceous glands leading to infections and styes. Also, Balms Away is fortified with Vitamins A, E, and C and a blend of plant-derived sterols and lipids, which are all good to the skin and lashes. So, in the end, I would definitely recommend people to use Balms Away, instead of Vaseline. The price may not be that good, but, all you need is a little amount of it, so a tin of it (2.2 ounces/63.8 grams) should last for quite a while!
