This is the best cleansing oil I've tried so far (and I've tried Shu, Biore, Fancl, Revlon, etc). I like the one for sensitive skin, due to its ingredients, and it's so good I don't even feel the need to try the other versions. Have used this for afternoon/night cleansing (only when I wear makeup) for the past 3 years.
- removes everything, even waterproof eyeliners, mascaras, etc
- do not sting eyes!
- emulsify nicely and leaves skin very clean after being washed off (no oily feel/residue)

not available in indonesia!

I have the Cleansing Oil for sensitive skin. The oil is a bit heavy on the skin, however it does remove eye makeup fairly well although I do have to rub it on my lids and lashes. However, I do believe that baby oil also does the trick. What I do like is the packaging...mine comes in the pump bottle so it isn't messy at all. However, the product is nothing spectacular.

I've gone through 2 bottles of this (400ml) and really like this. It cost SGD$23 for a 400ml bottle. This used to come with a pump previously, but now, the pump is an additional SGD$3.30.

I'm using the one for normal skin. It's not oily and removes my MU fairly well. I used 2 pumps, spread and massage onto my face, use a small amount of water to emulsify the oil on my face, massage, and thereafter, rinse my face.

One bottle last me about 7-8 months, considering that I used this 1-2x a day.

Affordable cleansing oil. Will buy this again.

Mine is the normal skin one. I haven't tried out the sensitive one but heard that that one's very oily so I think I will skip it.

Back to the topic. I am amazed by this product! And it's so unfair that it's not a highly raved product.

I used to swear by the DHC cleansing oil but I'm converting to Muji now. The DHC one is still good, just that Muji one is just as good and less than half the price.

I need cleansing oil to remove my face makeup. I tried using my beloved Bioderma Sensibio to get rid of my foundation, blush but it somehow didn't work out fine. My skin looked clean and fresh and feel just the same after I remove it with the Bioderma. I didn't have breakout the next day either. But somehow, the next day, my cheeks feels very rough when I touch them(still looked very smooth), a few days later, I noticed I had some dead skin flaking off. This had never happened before so I was kinda worried. Then I switched back to my DHC and everything's back to normal again. Whew!

But with my DHC running out and I'm unwilling to spend that much on a cleansing oil, I decided to give Muji a try and figure if I don't like it as makeup remover, I can always use it as facial wash. Well, let's just say I'm so glad I gave it a go.

It feels like the DHC one, not heavy, emulsifies very well and rinses off easily. I don't get flakey patches the next day not do I get breakouts. That's really all you can ask for in a cleansing oil.

The packing is very chic, like all Muji packaging. At first I was a little worried about the cap. I was afraid that every time I use it I'll get some around the cap area and it gets oily and sticky and basically, disgusting. I've always prefer a pump. But to my relief, nothing like that happened. The cap was well-designed, when you pour the oil out, it goes only into your palm and no messes around the cap. And it shuts well too, very sturdy, no leaking. I'm very impressed.

I got mine for HKD128, that's like roughly USD16.5, and it's 400ml. So real good deal! I'm going back to it when I finished this bottle which is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

I absolutely adore this product!

I'm using the one for sensitive skin (not sure what's the difference from the normal one) and it's really a no-frills makeup remove.

I use 2 - 3 pumps for my entire face and it removes makeup effectively, although I always double-cleanse with a mild facial wash after that. I always use a separate makeup remover for my eyes, but this does remove whatever I have on my eyes effortlessly, except for some really stubborn Japanese mascara.

It is also really affordable, especially if you compare it to brands like Fancl, DHC and Shu Uemura. I have tried all of them and personally find them to be equally good.

I have also re-purchased many bottles of this (lost count) but I hope Muji doesn't stop producing them!

Amazing. Love it. I'm a regular user of cleansing oil and I already tried several brands such as DHC and Shu Uemura. IMO, this stuff is even better than my favorite DHC deep cleansing oil. I have a normal to oily skin so I bought the Normal version of MUJI Cleansing Oil with blue Japanese letter on the bottle.

The oil is a bit runny, not as thick as DHC Deep Cleasing Oil, it emulsifies and washes off easily. It has a lil bit of citrusy smell and it leaves my skin soft and supple. Unexpectedly this product has an amazing cleansing power. I used my Majolica Majorca mascara that is usually very hard to remove (even with DHC), but with MUJI it's gone in seconds!

Additionally, this cleansing oil is very cheap compared to the other brands, doesn't cause break out to my skin, and I love the packaging.

Currently, this is my HG cleansing oil.

I love it!! I bought my second bottle :)) I do rinse again with Laniege of course, just to be extra safe.

2 months after my first review. This stuff has been clogging my pores as it is very difficult to wash off. I am using milk make up remover now...
Will not buy again.

I love cleansing oils but most of them are just too expansive. It's an EVERYDAY product. 50 is just too much. If you feel same as me this is the oil you've been looking for!
It's around 10 and works perfectly. I use it every day and a bottle lasts me 2, even 3 months. This oil removes all traces of make-up quickly. With water-proof mascara or heave eye make-up it might take longer but all you need is time, no need for rubbing. It's very gentle, unlike most other oils does not contain parabens and does not dry out skin either (my skin dries out easily so most cleansers, even oil ones leave it feeling dehydrated).
Get it. You will not be disappointed!

This is review is for the sensitive cleansing oil which I use daily as part of my end of day cleaning routine. I find it effective at removing light make-up around the eyes and face. I don't wear a lot of make-up, mainly concealer, a hint of powder, highlighter and sometimes mascara.

I find that after cleaning my face with this oil it does not feel like it has been exposed to harsh chemicals and stripped of all moisture, but it still feels clean. I typically massage the cleansing oil into my face and neck and then jump into the shower to rinse off, it's so simple to use and I love that it isn't too expensive at $90HKD for 200ML.

Whilst I love this product for my day to day cleaning, when I do wear a full face of makeup, especially waterproof mascara I prefer to double-cleanse, first with my Muji sensitive cleansing oil and then with a disposable Biore makeup remover cleansing wipes, just to make sure that all traces of makeup have been removed.

My only issue with this cleansing oil is the packaging because I find it hard to take it when I travel. The full sized bottle is not travel friendly and the smaller travel sized bottle seems to leak!

I use Muji Cleansing Oil for Sensitive Skin. I like this slightly better than Shiseido FT's Perfect Oil because of its texture -- slightly thicker -- somehow I feel it cleanses a wee bit better. It hasn't broken me out which I appreciate very much. A basic, good-quality, reasonably-priced cleansing oil. A product with value.
