This is nice and gets everything off, but I just can't seem to get into cleansing oils. Also is a bit drying.
This is a good cleansing oil, removes makeup and sunscreen very well, but I think it's too stripping for my skin. My face gets sooo tight if I don't put any moisturizer on. For the price it should have a locking pump. I've used the rest up by mixing it down half-and-half with olive or jojoba oil, and now it isn't to drying. I then use a gentle scrub to remove any residue and dead skin. I won't be buying this or any other brand of cleansing oil again because it's soooo cheap to make on your own! Just use 5-10% Cromollient SCE mixed with your favorite oils and it's just as good as any store-bought brand!
When I buy an expensive product, my rules are that a) I enjoy using it and b) it does what it's supposed to. That being said, I really enjoy using this. It's such a lovely break from harsh cleansers. It's gentle, and it cleans my skin. I do wash my face with a face wash after, but only because I have pretty oily skin. I don't wear make up, but I do wear sun screen. This does a great job removing it, but it's a bit pricey to use just for that purpose. I really like this, but I would not repurchase because I simply don't need it.
I used to use this a lot before, but found no major improvement in my skin tone as such .. and so as the other reviewers have mentioned, I've started using it to remove makeup (excellent for eye makeup) or use it when my skin feels extra dry. It hardly feels like you just put oil on your face. Didn't make me break out either, so that's a plus.
great at removing makeup...at least that is what my gf says.
The best thing since sliced bread! The *only* product I use to remove my makeup. Never thought I'd use an oil on my face, but this stuff thoroughly removes all traces of makeup and rinses completely clean. You do need to follow with a cleanser as part of your routine, however (more reviewers who complain of it leaving a "slick" feeling behind need to know this!!). It's also thicker and more substantive than MAC's Cleanse Off Oil, which to me makes it superior to MAC's version. Worth the price.
I was going to wait until the fall to purchase and try this cleanser because of all the glowing reviews but I went ahead and got it in July and am NOT disappointed! I thought a cleansing oil would be best for winter weather but that's not the case. I have to admit that the idea of rubbing an oil into my skin at the end of the day when its got oil and 10 hour old makeup on it sounds horrible but this product is awesome! I use waterproof eye makeup and I also use MAC paints which keep my eyeshadow from budging even through workouts so I need something effective to remove all of that. DHC Cleansing Oil does the trick. After cleansing my skin feels soft and looks fresh, not dry or irritated.
I purchased this through the DHC website, received it quickly along with a very generous supply of samples.
EDIT: This cleansing oil is clearing up my clogged pores!
the cleaning oil is good but it doesn't really help to remove eye makeup.
OK, this is holy grail material. I've tried Shu Uemura's cleansing oil and liked it (especially how it gets all my mascara off), but felt it left a film on my face. If you have to wash your face twice, what's the point, right? I only tried this because of the great reviews here. I can't believe how well this works. Not only does it clean all the mascara off (though with waterproof, I sometimes have to put some cleansing oil on a cotton puff and press it into my lashes to remove every last trace) but it doesn't leave a film on my skin. When I use a toner after this the cotton ball comes away *completely* clear! Amazing! Moreover, after using this at night and the mild soap (in the morning) with the facial brush my pores are smaller and my blackheads are disappearing and overall my skin looks more radiant. Fabulous! Two of my girlfriends rushed out to buy this when they saw how amazing my skin looked - definitely worth it!
This is the gentlest, most effective makeup remover I have EVER used. It's incredible! I massage it all over my face every night, then rinse and wash my face. It washes cleanly away and has NEVER clogged my pores.
