I really like this oil and it's surprising considering I'm a person who loves foamy cleansers. Just 2 squirts of this oil was enough to completely clean eye & face makeup. It really does rinse clean after 4-5 splashes of water on my face. I hardly have to put any moisterizers after. I've experienced no breakouts and my skin seems to like it. I've noticed a slight glow "not oily" one to my face. Edit: 1 week later noticed horrible flacking all over my face that appeared very quickly. It was irritation from one of the ingredients. Sadly, will have to return.
This is a wonderful cleansing oil. I ran out out of fancl(a recent purchase from Japan. This does a wonderful job of taking off all of my makeup at the end of the day. No breakouts, just clean, smooth skin. My only complaint is the packaging. Oil leaks out of the pump and slides all over the bottle. I'm sure some oil gets wasted and it's messy on my sink counter. But other than that, I highly recommend this product.
Edit* MAC has changed the bottle since I last reviewed it and it no longer leaks. Although, they did raise the price :(
This is the first cleansing oil I've used and I ♥ it! It smells nice and works great, instantly dissolving all makeup (even waterproof mascara). I follow up with Dove Unscented Beauty Bar just to make sure I get all traces of oil off, but it rinses off pretty cleanly with plain water. UPDATE Feb. 2006: MAC has fixed the problem with the former leaky pump, and it doesn't leak at all now--yeah! I will continue to repurchase this.
This cleanser is great! It took off all the makeup on my face in seconds and it removed every trace of mascara and eyeliner and even the eye kohl on my lower rims. It didn't sting or bother my eyes one bit. And it doesn't dry out my face and leave any tight feeling. It leaves my face completely soft and comfortable. Even though it's an oil cleanser, it left no oily residue behind. I don't follow up with any other cleanser because it does a great job on cleaning my face. I love this stuff and will definitely be repurchasing again and again!
I really, really like this product. I was a bit hesitant at first about using something with the word 'oil' in it to cleanse my face, especially since I can be rather prone to break-outs at times. However, it turned out that I had no reason to worry.
This worked like a dream - it literally dissolved and removed all of my makeup, even mascara. It's gentle enough and I liked the fact that it did not leave my skin feeling dry afterwards, as some cleansers do. I follow this with my normal cleanser, just to be sure to get all of the oil off (breakouts - sigh!), but I don't see any problems with using just this as a cleanser as it does froth up and cleanse off easily when it comes in contact with water. You only need a bit too - it's well worth the money especially when compared to Shu's cleansing oil, which is way, waaay more expensive.
Like some others, my only gripe is the packaging. It LEAKS! There is something quite wrong with the cap design because the oil just dribbles out the wrong way if I don't pump the bottle a certain way (upright, with a certain amount of pressure and not all the way down).
It would have been a PERFECT product, otherwise. Will repurchase, but am seriously considering rebottling to a more user-friendly dispenser. Sort this one out, please, MAC!
This did not work for me, ended up returning it. Thank goodness they are so good about returns. I was looking for a cleanser to remove eye makeup & cleanse face, I guess all in one cleanser. This did not remove mascara as easily as others I have used. I do not like to pull or rub my eyes. It did however disolve anything else I had on my face without leaving any residue at all. Then after using for a few days my skin was looking weird & dry (I don't understand this with an oil cleanser but it did). I normally have combo skin. The other problem was the pump dispenser made a mess unless you were very careful to hold over sink. I have read this worked for other people just not me.
This really takes off everything!
Long wear and transfer resistant products have no where to hide.
I have oily skin, but this product rinses off easily and leaves no residue or film.
I like this product, however, like other reviewers, the cap leaks. I love the scent and how it feels on the skin. It washes off with no residue and removes all makeup. I think it makes my sensitive rosacea flare up however.
I love this product. Its fairly affordable esp. considering that Shu's cleansing oils are 60 dollars. It takes off everything including hard to get off Shiseido sunscreen. It leaves my skin clean and soft and doesnt irritate or cause breakouts. A real winner here! Update: I did start having problems with the packading here, I'll still repurchase but transfer it to another bottle if another one leaks too. Another update: I stopped using this for a while during a vacation and used just my Neutrogena makeup wipes b/c they are easier to travel with. Went back to using this cleanser and my breakouts got worse. I have hormonal acne anyways but turns out this was also contributing to the problem.
I was really quite hesitant about using this product.. just the word oil made me crindge plus my skin tends to be on the oily side. Well I am so glad that I have this a try! I love it. It has essential oils in it but no mineral oils. It does not leave any residue and leaves my skin soft which is a plus for me so I dont always have to moisturize if I dont want. It smells pleasant... it smells like a cereal except I cant think of which one! the pump is convenient. I know some people are experiencing problems with the packaging I havent yet. I like the way it immediatly froths up when it touched water. So far so good, the only reason why I gave it 4 lippies and not 5 is because I havent used it long enough to know the long term effects. will update if I experience any issues
