So, I'm already a fan of DHC products - the Mild Soap in particular! I've always been extremely curious about the Deep Cleansing Oil and never really understood how an OIL could actually CLEAN. Well, I finally broke down and bought 3 mini Deep Cleansing Oils from Amazon and man, am I not sorry! This oil is INCREDIBLE and literally melts my makeup away and rinses off completely clean with no greasy residue whatsoever! I actually enjoy washing my face after work now because of this product! I will definitely be repurchasing after I'm done with the last mini bottle. DHC does it again!

Been using this for a few months, and it doesn't break out my combo, acne-prone skin whilst cleansing it every evening. My skin has actually cleared up a bit. I use this as the first step in my nighttime routine:

1) (before wetting my face with water), massage the oil into my face to dissociate all of the makeup and facial gunk in my pores

2) rinse with warm water

3) lather up using my favorite gentle foaming cleanser (LRP Intoleriane one) to completely wash face

4) dry face, and apply my arsenal of moisturizers afterwards (following the Skinandtonics method)

I honestly like this product more than the toted Banila Co. Cleansing Balm, which may have broken me out a bit whenever I used it.

ACNE PRONE....After a couple of years of using acne face washes. ..cleansers. ...creams and gels....masks and peels...my skin was like a sun dried tomato...and I was still getting mild to moderate cystic acne on my chin and jaw line (what a waste of time and money)...
After this I decided to look into a different approach to dry acne prone skin....
I also spoke to a few dermatologists via telephone (so free advice if you word it right lol)...
So I then realised...my skin needed to be returned to a normal ph balance.
so ditched all my salicylic and benzoyl peroxide products. ..and started again!
First I'd use this cleansing oil to remove as much make up as I could (I wear alot of mascara so oil doesn't remove all of that) but my skin feels so smooth and supple afterwards. ..then I use olay gentle face wash to take away any left over make up residue. ..face wash is so gentle and doesn't sting or leave face tight...love it...sometimes I use kaeso calming cream cleanser instead...which is also great for red tender dry skin....then I use my aveeno moisturiser which has really changed my skin (so much softer and takes redness down)....no acne potions to be found...lol...well actually once/twice a week I use st ives blemish control scrub...just to keep skin smooth and flake free (yep it has a small tiny amount of salicylic acid but I love the stuff)...
I also have epiduo cream gel from my doc which I use every night on my active acne...but this can really dry out skin so its best to use ph balancing gentle washes and cleansers and a good moisturiser!
Before everything I used had something claiming to treat acne in it....but now I know all those products did was inflame and dry out my skin and make my acne worse...
Turns out if you use alot of products that dry out acne and healthy skin....your body's natural reaction is to produce more sebum/oil to try and re hydrate itself..but if your top layer of skin is dry and flaky the sebum gets stuck in your pores and bacteria begins to develop and feed of that oil then a nice big spot/cyst develops. ..but skins not fussy were it let's out the sebum....so those with oily skin will find the oil is coming out of open pores. ..giving the feeling of oily skin...
We need to use products that balance our skin...and keep it clean and hydrated. ..
my skins so much smoother and clearer now after a few weeks...I still have some acne scarring which is also fading now...
the dhc oil is a great start to my new skin care routine.....also its fantastic at cleaning foundation brushes. ..it really leaves my brushes like new (if it can get all that foundation of your brushes then must be good for getting it off your face;)
So 8/10....its over priced and I'd like a fancier bottle lol x

I have been using this product for 3 weeks and I am very happy with it . My skin is dry with some occasionnal spots and I could see an improvement after using this cleanser for a few days. It remove well all the make up . Quite pricey though.

I recently just bought this and have used it only 4 times...my skin usually doesnt like olive oil but this did not give me any bad reaction...yet. It's a little thicker than I expected...leaves my skin dewy looking after rinsing...no oily residue or anything, cleanses well. It's kinda hard to incorporate in my cleasing regime though. This is supposed to be used on dry skin, so I cannot use it during my showers at night, with my clarisonic brush...so I've been using it in the mornings. This is my first one step cleansing oil, I do love my MAC oil cleanser, and I think that cleanses better than this.

A little pricey for what is just basically olive oil from what I can tell. I used this to dissolve makeup and remove my sunscreen. My skin was in really good condition, but I stopped using it because I stopped wearing the sunscreen. I didn't notice any change. This is good for a cleansing oil, I would recommend it, but won't buy again.

I just can't get used to oil cleansing. It doesn't feel like you're getting clean and it DEFINITELY doesn't get all of my makeup off! Maybe if you don't wear makeup it could work ok? Not for me.

I can't live without this product!! Better than shu uemura's famous cleansing oil...

I use this at night time, instead of drying foaming wash. Keeps my skin supple and this removes even the toughest, most waterproof makeup!

As a result, my skin has never been clearer.

Purchased this for about 29 cdn from amazon.ca. Will repurchase!

Really good makeup removing cleansing oil, before i continue i have combination skin with slight sensitivity.

1) This is a product i recommend to use after using some form of makeup remover first. Cleansing oils don't penetrate the skin deep enough to get everything out of the pores so its a good cleanser to just wash off any excess.
2) You MUST follow up with a normal cleanser after using this if you have combination - oily skin. It is a cleansing oil, no matter what the claims are you need to wash it off to be on the safe side.
3) It smells like nuts and does not feel oily on the skin at all
4) The price pretty pricey but its better than any i have tried so far.

I love this cleansing oil! I am trying out etude house one at the moment (and will probably be moving on to mizon and innisfree) but, at the moment, this one is still my favorite. One pump wipes away EVERYTHING and it doesn't seem to strip my skin away of the moisture. What more can you ask from a cleanser?

I was really afraid of the fact that this was oil since I have dealt with acne for 10+ years, but it doesn't break me out - and helped me get over the fear of using oil in my routine!

So yays. :].
