Another product I had high hopes for that didn't work out. I'm always on the lookout for a cheaper DHC Deep Cleansing oil dupe and thought maybe this was it. It kind of met my expectations but there are three reasons I will not be repurchasing: 1) Does not remove eye makeup completely, especially my non-waterproof eyeliner: 2) The taste is truly nasty, just try washing your face without getting cleanser on your lips: 3) It made me break out. I haven't had this many zits since my teenage years, approximately 40 ice ages ago. It's back to the DHC for me!

I love this cleansing oil. It's light weight and it emulsifies beautifully. It has a synthetic green apple scent that will appeal to the younger crowd. I use it to remove water resistant sunscreen and bb cream/foundation. On Halloween it removed waterproof eyeliner with ease. This oil turns milky white when it comes into contact with water and rinses clean which is my favorite feature. It uses mineral oil and other surfactants to break down oil/makeup but it is gentle and leaves skin feeling clean without residue. I've tried other drugstore cleansing oils and this one is my favorite. The bottle has a pump that dispenses as much oil as you want which is also a huge selling point as other oils have had clumsy leaky pumps. If I want a deeper cleanse I use Ceraves hydrating cleanser and it will remove the thickest layers of makeup and sunscreen.

I bought this and I never looked back.
I have tried Shu Uemura's cleansing oil, they feel good but the cost is too high. This is priced reasonably and it works wonders. I have bad experience with other drugstore cleansing oil but this is the bomb.

Pros
- Leaves my skin clean and hydrated
- Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin
- Doesn't burn my skin
- PRICE
- Lightly scented, not overpowering

Cons
- NO CONS ! I LOVE THIS A LOT !

I wanted to try this cleansing oil in order to find an inexpensive replacement for the DHC, MAC, and Josie Maran cleansing oils. This did not work for me. The first time I used it, I needed more than 2 pumps to remove light makeup (foundation and powder). I then proceeded to use it on my eyes and not only did it burn, it didn't even remove my NON-waterproof eye makeup. I had to use a different makeup remover on a cotton ball to remove the rest. I haven't been impressed with any drugstore oil cleansers yet. The only good thing about this product is the light scent.

I'm in my 2nd bottle now. I LOVE this product.
I love the fact that it doesnt contain soap (not foamy), but you can still feel the 'soap-like' sensory once you emulsify the oil in your face. It can really clean up my daily (super light) make up, which basically only contains IOMA moisturozer, Kiehls BB Cream, MAC compact sheer, MAC blush n eye shadow, NYX eyeliner and Maybelline mascara.

I only use 1/2 pump. Massage the oil on my dry face in circular motiom, especially on the waterproof mascara. Then I washed my hand, and use my wet hand to emulsify the oil and turned it into light foamy texture. I massage my face again, and them wash it off.
Just to make sure it is clean (just a habit), i wash my face again with Olay Cream Cleanser.

Fragrance is okay, nothing special. I would love to have the packaging more travel friendly though. The oil sometimes leak out when I travel and put it on my luggage.

What I love the most is that I think this is the best face cleanser for my super dry cheek and super oily T Zone face

Initially I was dubious about oil cleansing but boy I was wrong. So gentle and nourishing. Removes heavy make up and unlike many other oils, it rinses clean. Leaves my skin feeling soft and clear. No break outs, excessive oil or drying. I still need a moisturiser as my skin is dry, but being such an effective and gentle cleanser it has helped control occasional breakouts and I enjoy using it so much I no longer feel lazy enough to skip make up removal when I am tired. It works well with a wet face in the shower or just splash some over dry skin at the sink, massage and rinse. I have tried hundreds of cleansers but have been using this for more than 6 months and it is my favourite. Oil convert, right here!

I have been using Neutrogena deep cleansing oil for years from old packaging to the new all blue bottle. It has served me well and never caused breakouts or anything. However, it doesn't cleanse off waterproof mascara for me (changed to a super wp mascara recently) so I use a separate eye mu remover for it. Used to be able to remove my favorite but discontinued ZA cutie curl mascara.

This cleansing oil is the best cleanser I've ever used.

Over the years, I've used Neutrogena products and found that they always work wonderfully. But this is my favourite Neutrogena product of all.

It quickly, effectively and gently removes all traces of makeup. With most other cleansers I use, I find that waterproof mascara is not easy to remove. But with this Neutrogena cleansing oil, the waterproof mascara is removed so effectively and quickly. And yet it doesn't leave your skin dry, unlike some cleansers. Your skin feels dewy and healthy. I don't use any other cleanser after this, cos it works so perfectly!

It's also reasonably priced. Don't waste your money on the Shu Uemera one, this one works great.

This is one of the only skincare products I use (I use about 3 skincare products only), and I have really great skin. It's really a fantastic product, I've used it for more than 1 yr already and it's really improved my skin.
