This is the best makeup remover I've ever used by far! I've tried every type of textures (mousse, milk...) and I never thought oil could be the HG for me as I have a combination skin with an very oily T zone and very dry cheeks. I was first introduced to cleansing oils with the Shu Uemura products but though they worked very well, I was a bit worried by the fact that they contain mineral oil and by the price tag.
I heard about the MAC one on Christine/Temptalia's blog and read positive reviews on MakeUpAlley, so I had to check it out and buy it.
Well, I can positively say that it changed a lot of things in my makeup-removing routine:
1/ No need to use separate products for the face AND the eyes: it gets rid of sunscreen, foundation, waterproof mascara... without irritating my skin and my eyes. Good bye to my coton pads!
2/ It made the process working way faster and easier - no excuse to skip it even if I'm very tired.
3/ It didn't make my sensitive, acne-prone skin break out.
4/ It's less expensive than the SU oils and works just as well.
Use it with DRY hands on your DRY face and massage. Then put some water on your hands - it will transforms into milk - and continue to massage your face. Then, rinse it out. My MAC MUA told me that I only needed my moisturizer after that, but I feel like using a face cleanser after is more appropriate for my skin.
I wish it was of a thicker consistency, so that it doesn't run out of my face too fast! Also the pump is very hygienic but can provide too much product if you press it too quickly and splash everything around. Nothing that would affect the quality of the product but it can be annoying sometimes.
Overall, a very good product which I'm very happy about. I've reached the half of my 2nd bottle and will definitely re-purchase it!

The only makeup remover than can get EVERYTHING off without scrubbing -- even waterproof liners and mascara! I've tried many other products and I would have to say this is my number one choice!

This is definitley an industrial strength m/u remover. Anything else I've used always left bits and pieces of mascara here and there and I'd wake up with raccoon eyes even though I was sure I removed everything I could. With this, everything leaves my face, and I can go to bed feeling fresh and clean with no surprise residue the next morning.
I'm acne prone with sensitive skin, I haven't experienced any problems or breakouts, and I'm almost on my 2nd bottle.

I've recently switched from mineral makeup foundation to liquid foundation, Revlon Colorstay to be specific. It covers so well, but it definitely is a bitch to take off.
This is an awesome makeup remover! It really does take everything off. However, I only gave it 4 lippies because of a couple things: I wish it was a thicker consistency because I feel like I pump it 2-3x to get the amount of product I need to take off the makeup. Another thing that bothers me is the lock on the pump. Like many other bottles with a pump dispenser, it locks when you move it in one direction; however, it can easily unlock itself in bags/luggage so it might leak everywhere which def. sucks.
Other than that I love this product. One thing you def. need to do though is use a facial cleanser afterwards. This product does NOT replace your everyday cleanser unlike what some of these reviewers are saying. It's not smart to leave that residue on your face & besides it even says not to on the bottle. READ THE LABEL PEOPLE!

This is my HG cleanser/mu remover and I have repurchased many many times.
The important thing is to use it the right way. Apply it with dry (!) hands to dry (!) facial skin (yes, on top of all your m/u, dirt etc) and massage it in. Also around (closed) eyes. Then take a little warm water and put it on your skin and make a milky lather by massaging the water with all the dirt and oil on your face. Then rinse. Voila! Done.
I work in theater and sometimes I am wearing VERY heavy m/u. This takes everything off at once. No need to cleanse with a regular cleanser afterwards.
It is quite pricey but I don`t need an extra eye m/u remover or regular cleanser for afterwards so it`s okay I guess.
I have also tried dhc cleansing oil and I like MACs much much better, it has a nicer texture, smells nicer and seems to rinse cleaner.
I will repurchase again and again.
btw I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin and I have never had problems with this!

I didn't want to totally ruin the high rating for this product, because for the most part, it did what it was supposed to do - remove all my makeup, including sunscreen and w/p e/l, and left my skin soft and smooth. Unfortunately, it also made me break out. It sort of creeped up on me, I was almost 3/4 through the bottle before it dawned on me, honestly, I think I was in denial, I didn't want to admit it was this because I loved it. Oh well, try it anyways- it works well, and maybe, just maybe YOU won't break out... :)

i've repurchased over and over again.
quite a hefty price tag, but i would say it's well worth it. doesn't break me out and a nice pleasant smell.
the key is knowing how to use it. never really understood why people complained about it being messy.
i normally do one full pump, rub it on DRY hands and rub gently on my DRY face. Massage gently for a bit until you see some of your crazy makeup dissolving. (i use sunblock, revlon colorstay, waterproof mascara, liner and shadow) and then you wet your hands a bit and massage until you look like a homeless person with all the makeup on your face dissolving. that's when you can rinse with water. sounds convoluted, but it's pretty easy. not a lot of steps. worth doing because you will never have to wake up looking like a raccoon and you can rest asssured all that gunk is gone.

I started using cleansing oils after a friend had introduced me to it and I'm hooked! It cleans off makeup very well and doesn't break me out. After using it for a while I also noticed that I had less blackheads especially on my nose. I'm on my second bottle now after testing other cleansing oils but I seem to like this one the most so far. I do however use a regular cleanser afterwards to cleanse again just in case. My only concern is the thickness of the oil; it seems runny compared to other ones but other than that i love it!
Edit: I have switched my cleansing oil from MAC to Boscia's. MAC's cleanse off oil was a bit too runny for me and it made me waste more of the product.

This stuff is awesome!!! it removes all my makeup quickly and easily. Even my eyelash glue (which is usually left behind with other removers) doesn't stand a chance with this product! I use this just for removing eye makeup so one bottle will last me a good while. Scent is very light and pleasant (almost lemon-y?). I do have one rant though. I wish this product were thicker cuz it does get messy and it is hard to control how much you squirt out. It tends to go everywhere!
Side note - I take out my contacts before i remove my eye makeup and i usually need to apply eye drops after since my eyes can get dry. After using this cleanse off oil, i don't even need to add eye drops! great stuff!!!!

I have finally found something that can remove sunscreen without rubbing my face raw!
I love this oil. It removes every trace of the sunscreen and has a light citrus fragrance that doesnt irritate my sensitve skin.
I dont love the pump on the bottle, as I cant seem to regulate how much I get - I think Im wasting some. But overall, I love this and will re-buy.
