I gotten say this is by far the best makeup remover and cleanser i've ever tried....i have very sensitive, acne prone dehydrated skin which reacts to most cosmetics products in a way that even cetaphil isn't gentle enough.........and most cleanser will leave my skin irritated, rough and itchy....what is a girl to do except keep on trying and trying....but luckily i came across this item which has been heavily advertised in asia.....i alrready notice how amazing this product is after the first time of using....my skin feels fresh, smooth and hydrated....i didn't even follow with another cleanser....and my tonered cotton pad comes out clean....the only thing i need to complain is the steep pricing....but i can't say no to the stuffs that my skin like.........
The cleanser is mild on skin but doesn't clean as great as I'd like. I find traces of make up residue if I don't use another cleanser after rinsing .
I really wanted to try this oil, as it's had so many good reviews, and it's Shu and $$$, so I thought it would be great. However, this oil really doesn't do it for me. It doesn't dissolve makeup as easily as other oils I've used (DHC, Mac, Dermalogica) and needs a bit of rubbing to remove, vs rinsing away easily and cleanly like other oils. I'd always double cleanse or use toner after this as I never feel my skin is totally clear after cleansing with this oil. Disappointing.
This is the first cleansing oil I've ever tried and I like it. It removes all of my makeup effortlessly but I do find that if I don't use another cleanser, I still get a bit of residue left as though my face isn't entirely clean. I don't use this everyday since I am lazy considering it is a bit messy. It doesn't break me out or dry out my face. I might try the Shiseido cleansing oil after I am finished this one.
Being a fan of oil cleansers, I decided to try this one after I ran out of DHC. They are both excellent, but this one does a better job taking off eye makeup. Both take off all makeup and do not aggravate my sensitive skin. When I am not wearing makeup or just wearing light makeup, I use Olay sensitive skin foaming cleanser, but when I wear a full face of makeup, I use this. It leaves my skin soft and clean, no residue or tightness.
I've been looking for a new cleanser which wont dry out my skin but wont leave me with feeling like I still have dirty face and wont remove suncream (cetaphil).
Before I tried using OCM method with many different oils and they never satisfied me but I gave this one a go after looking at reviews here and I've been using it every single day since!
It is oil but not too oily, its really nice when you put it on your skin and it allows me to do myself face massage, then when I add water, it magically dissolves. I have no idea how this works so well but it does. I didnt plan to use it for my eyes because I looove Bioderma BUT it does such a good, quick job without any rubbing, cotton pads... Everything is gone! The skin after is soft, not oily, not dry, really nice feeling. The irritation in outer corners of my eyes dramatically improved...
I use one pump, not 3-4 how they recommend and it helps me to save product and also I dont have dripping product from my face. The price is high (88euro for bigger bottle- say what??) but it is worth it.
I don't use this on a daily basis, only when i have makeup on. I found the price a bit expensive, and the only reason why i honestly use this is due to it being able to remove my makeup as well as cleansing my face. I don't really like how it's a cleansing oil, and i feel like it makes my skin dry. I would buy it again due to it being easy to use because of the makeup remover+ cleanser but not used on a daily basis.
Removes make up great but too drying for my skin. Started flaking after a week of use. But I do have dehydrated skin, so if yours isnt, I think it should be fine.
My skin: oily, clog-prone, sensitive that gets dehydrated very easily. I used this 6 or 7 years ago with no problem. For whatever reason, I stopped using it. I tried it again recently, and it caused tiny red irritation bumps all over my face. I suppose my skin has changed over the years and has become very reactive to oils. Over the past year, I've tried many oil cleansers to remove tenacious sunscreens. They all leave me with irritation, clogged pores, breakouts, and flaky skin. I'd like to give this 1 lippie, but I'm giving it 2 since it worked for me once upon a time.
I use the yellow version.. Why bother having 2 make up removers - one for the eyes and one for the face - when you can have an all-in-one make up remover like this??? Because of my oily skin, I tend to use gel eyeliners which won't budge all day (essence brand from Germany).. Using this to remove my eye make up thereafter is a God sent!!! It removes all traces of my make up! You only need a few pumps to cleanse your entire face, and no cotton pad is needed! It's a little pricey for a makeup cleanser but one 450ml bottle lasts me for 6 months which amounts to about 10GBP/month.. I consider it money well spent and maximum efficiency ;)
