I should have believed the reviews on this site and tried this earlier. I think if this were easier to get everyone would be using it. It makes my face really soft, takes off all my wp sunscreen and rinses clean. It's like magic, almost. I took one star off b/c it's so expensive and hard to get, but put that star back on when I thought about how effective it is and how little you need to use each time. I urge everyone to get their hands on this stuff and try it!

I was really looking forward to spending alot of money at DHC. Unfortunately it didn't work out that way. I used the DCO for a total of 3 1/2 weeks and had to stop using it. I broke out around my mouth in little bumps after the first few times of using it. I had heard that it brings everything to the surface and then after that it's clear sailing to beautiful skin....Not so much. They just kept getting worse and worse. I stopped using it about a week ago and decided to try out Dove beauty bar. I just wanted the simplest thing on my face until it calmed down. I will update this after I've been using Dove for a while and let you know if my face has cleared up. It may be a solution to those of us who've had a bad reaction... Also if it keeps my face nice I may have just found the cheapest beauty routine ever :) PS. I'm so jealous of those who it works for...I REALLY wanted it to work.
UPDATE (10-15-07) While my skin isn't completely clear yet I can really tell that the Dove soap it helping it. Another tip for the people who's skin did not react well to DHC, I found that Tea Tree Oil really helps. I had this really HORRIBLE zit on my chin which had turned to a huge scab because I cannot help but pick it. Whatever - we all do it... ;) Anyways I put tea tree oil on it before I went to bed and it really reduced redness. I also find Penaten cream really helps when you use it on zits too...

who woulda thunk? when i started getting catalogs with samples of this cleansing oil, i thought NO WAY am i putting oil on my already oily/sensitive skin. then i read the MUA reviews and saw that others with oily skin use this and love it. well...i have replaced my long HG cleanser (philosophy purity made simple) with DHC's cleansing oil and washing powder. awesome stuff and i think someone else here said it: its a scientific fact that oil dissolves oil. it works. don't try this with regular grocery store olive oil, DHC purifies their oil to take the greasy stuff out. gets everything off (dirt, makeup, my 12 coats of mascara), smells great, rinses clean. doesn't leave my face tight or dry. do try a sample. i've been using it regularly for about 2 weeks after trying several samples (to make sure it wouldn't break me out) and i've already converted my mom and friend. pricey, but i say its worth it. i follow with acerola lotion and moisturizer and i'm pleased as punch!

Usually I am one to skimp when buying a cleanser. I always figured as long as I could find a product that was cleansing, but gentle at a low price, I could use the money I'd saved and spend it on good quality day/night creams and serums. However, after using a sample of DHC Deep Cleaning Oil, I now gladly shell out the $24 bucks for a cleanser. Considering that cleanser is the product that you use up the quickest, that sounds like a lot to pay, but this cleanser even removes waterproof mascara, and any other stubborn, hard to remove products we use....so when you take that into account, it's not that expensive, since you've eliminated the need and cost for eye make-up remover.
You don't even need water when you use this, until you rinse.
Also, I was amazed at how soft this cleanser left my face.....so silky! It contains olive oil and fruit oil, so that explains the way it makes your skin feel afterward. My face doesn't feel tight or dry after cleansing, and sometimes I don't even use a moisturizer. But don't get the wrong idea...it's not a greasy feeling...it's just perfect.I certainly feel the benefits of this cleaser outweighs the pricetag!

It is good makeup remover, but pricey. There are other cheaper substitutes with better price.

I love Deep Cleansing Oil. It is the best makeup remover/cleanser I've tried. It removes everything--from dirt and oil, grime, makeup and stubborn waterproof mascara. It cleans and rinses completely. It leaves nothing except soft skin and never greasy.

I've tried a few other cheaper cleansing oils, which I think were mineral oil-based, and I'll never use them again after trying DHC. All the raves that I read here are entirely warranted. It gently removes every single trace of makeup and washes away without stripping your skin. When I used other cleansers, I always got a little makeup on my cotton pad after wiping my face with toner, but after switching to DHC's cleansing oil, my face is free of every single trace of makeup. I used to remove some of my more stubborn eye makeup with jojoba oil, but that required a lot of rubbing and wasn't always very thorough. This product takes away everything, with very little effort! This is definitely HG material.

On a whim, I tried a sample of this that I received with a catalog. It lay around in my bathroom for the longest time because I have extra-ordinarily oily skin (shine one hour post-cleansing--- and I'm 40!)
The last thing you want to do with several hours of oil collection on your face is add more oil--seriously counter-intuitive to me, but chemically sensible, my genius husband tells me--oil dissolves oil. Turns out that I love the stuff. It takes off the oil, sunscreen, powder, etc. and leaves my face clean and soft, not stripped. Way cool...I have since bought both the small (for travel) and large sizes. I will happily purchase again and highly reccommend it. So sorry some other folks have had bad experiences.
P.S. Anybody know of any oil blotting products that actually work for REALLY oily skin?

For two weeks I loved this stuff! My skin was so soft and glowing. And that was something because I already had good skin. Then I woke up with a few zits on my chin, no big deal. Next day a few more...I was in deniel and didn't want to believe that it was the new cleansing oil I'd just spent a good some of $ on. But it has to be. I've been using Kiss my face olive oil soap for years with nary a pimple. Now suddenly I'm a pizza face! I have huge boil like zits now. But I have to say the skin around the boils is "amazing"! I guess its not for everyone!
I now HATE this crap. I'm glad it seems great for most people as I wouldn't wish this on anyone. My face continues to break out even though I quit using this weeks ago. The derm said that the pores that were clogged initally will go ahead and form their zits... I am having to use 3 topical meds on my face, an oral antibiotic and have had a few of the monster zits injected. Several of the injections caused "dents" in my face. The Derm said they will fill back in . I sure hope so. I would love to have my pretty skin back.
My advice to anyone is that if you like what you are using don't risk this. My husbands a derm and he and every derm I've asked say it may be ok to use oil on your face for a while. But it will eventually catch up with you. In the form of gross looking milia, tons of them. The oil will not come off usless you wash it off with soap. It will clog your pores. If you have to use soap, whats the point? Maybe I'm missing something.

For years I have received, off and on, catalogues for DHC products with their little samples, and mistakenly believed they weren't worth trying. I finally tried the deep cleansing oil one weekend, when I was going through all my summer catalog glut. This was in September, 2006. I am a convert! It was amazing - an oil that goes on your dry skin, yet rinses off clean. I've read the reviews here that were less than glowing, and I am scratching my head over them. My skin is semi-sensitive. I had also developed, at the age of 45, rosacea which my dr. had prescribed Metro-gel for; this medication wasn't working.
Since I have changed my skin care routine to the olive essentials set, 2x daily, my skin tone is dramatically different. My rosacea outbreaks are few and far between - for me. I have won converts to the DHC products at my office. I have been using DHC products now for a year, and I would not go back to Clinique, or the host of other brands I've tried. The company sends out free mini samples in each catalogue and I save those for weekend trips. I am sorry that some on this forum have had less than stellar luck with their products. I have combination skin and the olive oil formulations do not block my pores.
