It is OK
It is good to remove make-ups, but i do not like the greasy feeling that it left on my face, so I always use sth else to complete the cleaning. Overall, its performance is OK at its price.

-Removes make up


-Contains oil and can contribute to breakouts

I have used this product since I was a teenager. However, I ONLY use it around my eyes where I could use the oil for moisture and to get the tough make up off. However, I won't use it on my face. If I do, then I make sure I wash with another cleanser immediately.

I don't like the smell
left my skin oily but not really moisturized

It may work for some people but I just don't like it. Doesn't absorb well at all, stays all of the surface, leaving oily but not moisturized skin.

gets rid of waterproof mascara!


contains mineral oil

I like this because it works! But I rather just use regular extra virgin olive oil instead.

Creamy/smooth & feels good putting it on
Nice smell
Very cheap/affordable
Lasts a long time
Great for taking off makeup


Leaves residue
Can create new breakouts
Not a lasting solution
Not great as a moisturizer.

I started using Ponds cold cream after reading reviews on a different site mentioning that someone's grandmother had used it as a night time moisturizer and her skin looked fabulous at age 80. People were also saying it worked to moisturize and get rid of acne. I put this on before bed every night and for the first month or so, all of my acne was gone... and i mean ALL of it. Cystic acne, blackheads, whiteheads & regular pimples. For the first couple weeks, my skin was unreal (I've had moderate acne ever since I was 13.) After a few weeks, pimples started showing up all over my face, worse than before. I still use this cream as a moisturizing eye makeup remover, but I always wash it off. My face is just too oily to use it as anything more.

Removes makeup wonderfully
Cool and refreshing
Luxuriously creamy


Leaves residue that can cause breakouts

If you wear (non-mineral) makeup regularly, this is a great makeup remover. It's especially good for liquid or cream makeup. Properly removing makeup is necessary to avoid breakouts, so this is an important step. It leaves residue though, so I only consider it a makeup remover and not a full cleanser if you have acne. You will need to use a normal cleanser afterward if you are really acne prone. That is why I'm not recommending it as just a cleanser. I always keep it on hand for makeup removal and deep moisturizing.
