I used to be on the fence with this but I only use it now at night if I'm wearing foundation, so mainly as a makeup remover. I don't use this on a daily bases.
As a makeup remover (also being able to remove waterproof mascara) I can't fault it. I think it's perfect. As long as you COMPLETELY AND THOROUGHLY wash the oil off your face after emulsifying etc, you won't break out with this at all!
There's no doubt this product is overpriced! However it lasts a VERY long time. I've had mine in the bigger size which came to £60-something pound for more than a year now.

This smells heavenly and removes makeup like a charm. It also leaves the skin feeling supple and looking fresh and dewy. But it broke me out a few hours after I used it. I think it's just my skin which can't take anything oily. But I got all the other good effects. I wanted to love this so much, and I guess I did for the positive results, but not so much for the pimples it gave me.
I have not repurchased this since I bought it. For one, it's really expensive. For another, cleansing oils don't leave me with clear skin, not even something as amazing as this.

I switched to this product recently from Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil [Fancl will cease its operation in Singapore in March]. Heard alot of positive reviews about this product and decided to buy it. Have been using it continuously and didn't further cleanse my face with my usual cleanser- no breakouts so far [a must for me].
It has a nice scent. The texture is not as thick as Fancl's.
Though the recommended number of pumps to cleanse the entire face is 3, I am contented with 2 pumps. I do not use foundation [I pair Chanel Le Blanc White Essential Whitening Makeup Base with Clinique's loose powder] - maybe that's the reason why I require 2 pumps only.
It does a good job at removing my makeup thoroughly and leaves my skin feeling freshed. Am satisfied with this product and will continue to purchase it.

I have been using this product as a make up remover (before the actual mild cleanser) for years. I don't think it is as good as SK-II's cleansing oil but replaceable. The SK-II is too expensive judging from the price per cc. Not that this one is cheap but because my issue is about dryness. I have to rely on a cleansing oil which doesn't dry my skin. You might think I'm an idiot because a cleansing oil would theoretically not be able to dry your face. But not every cleansing oil is created equal. I used to try Dermalogica's Preclense and it didn't work for me. This SU's premium A/O is okay considering my condition. Also, this oil is rinsed off well with water and the stickiness doesn't linger on. There is no need to use another cleanser to wash it off but I take it in my regimen to use a really mild cleanser (a prescription from my dermatologist or sometimes I even use cetaphil) after using the oil. It works well for me.
Price-wise, it is expensive but let's think about it as having a big 400 ml. Cleansing oil which will las for about 6 months (I don't wear much make up so I use only a pump per day. A bottle would last me at least had a year.

I used to use this cleanser some years ago before my quest to replace synthetic ingredients with natural derivatives.
I must admit, despite it having mineral oils and ethoxylated ingredients in it, I always loved this cleanser.
It removes make up. It deep cleanses dirt from the skin. It smells great. It doesn't irritate my skin, probably due to the inert nature of petroleum oil which is always used in pharmaceutical, dermatological preparations.
Now, if they could make an non-synthetic and non-ethoxylated version of this, I would be queueing up to buy it!

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.
