What a shame. Liked the packaging, fragrance, price and accessibility of this cleansing oil, but it sadly clogged my pores. I was careful to only introduce this into an established routine and my skin slowly started getting worse. I stopped using this and went back to another oil cleanser (Hipitch) I'd been using and the clogs/irritation went away. I've got a nearly full bottle of this left, which I doubt I can use up. I won't buy this again. I also found that when i cleansed afterwards, that the lather went very quickly (if that makes sense). However, using the same cleanser after the Hipitch, this doesn't happen and the lather stays for longer when I cleanse. This made me wonder if the Shiseido Perfect Oil simply isn't 'rinsing' off very well and leaving more of a film on the skin, which caused my clogs. I'm not sure, but I can't risk using this any more.

This is not good for removing makeup. I washed my face with it and then used my clarisonic and my clarisonic brush was full of makeup. What a disappointment, since this is what I purchased it for. For washing my face after my makeup is removed by something else, its fine. Leaves my skin feeling soft.

Purchased this because it was way cheaper than the sheseido makeup cleansing oil in the clear amber bottle. Well, sometimes cheap turns out expensive. This oil smells nice but does not work well like the other product and it leaves an oily residue where the other one does not. Also I have notice a cloudiness over one eye when I use it.
I have changed my mind on this product, though it is cheaper it works so much better except when using around the eyes it makes your sight cloudy. I will purchase this again

I've been using it only for a week and like it so far. My skin is VERY dry and sensitive and it doesn't leave my skin greasy and doesn't irritate it.
The only thing is the smell - i just don't like it.
i will try it out longer and if the result is good i could manage the smell.

Shiseido Fine Toiletry's (FT) Perfect Oil has been my staple makeup remover since RMK. It is a very runny liquid which I think is suitable for oily skin types. I like that it removes makeup well and washes off fairly easily without leaving too greasy a trace. I also always follow up with another cleanser after using cleansing oil (double cleanse). I like this much better than Shu Uemura's which is is too rich for my skin type. Compared to RMK, Pefect Oil is slightly below par in terms of scent and texture (slide), but the difference can be overlooked for Perfect Oil is unbeatable for its price. Nonetheless, I have also disovered Muji's Cleansing Oil to be an excellent alternative. There are many cleansing oils being released in the self-select department, and the temptation to try them is always there. But it is also good to know that there is a good basic cleansing oil to fall back to.

This has quickly become my favorite face cleaner. I've been using it everyday for 2 weeks now and I've gotten no breakouts, and my skin seems to be in better condition than before I used it.
This is my very first oil cleanser so I can't compare it to others, but so far, I really really like this cleanser. I apply it to my dry face without any water, and I use 2 pumps to take off all my face and eye MU (revlon colorstay foundation and waterproof e/l and mascara). I rub it in my face and eyes for about a minute before I rinse off and finish by using my clean & clear foaming facial wash for sensitive skin to take off the oil residue that's left behind.
The perfect oil cleanser takes off all of my w/p MU on my face and eyes, and it doesn't dry out my skin either. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it does leave behind some oily residue and the bottle is quite small (150 mL) for the price that I paid ($14.99 + tax) at my local 99 Ranch store.
I would definitely repurchase this cleanser, and maybe next time I'll stop by Mitsuwa instead of 99 Ranch, maybe it'll be cheaper there.

this is the only shiseido cleansing products that let me down. i hoped i can clean oil with water and get the clean feel, but this is just oil that does not dissolve into water at all. big disapointment... foaming cleansers are the best though...

I was at Barney's looking for something fun and new to try...had always read about this product so decided to give it a try. I really wanted to like it but just could not...the oil is just too greasy. That said, I know a lot of people who love this product so it must be a personal thing about the oil...

I've used this product for years, off and on. I'm not sure why because there are much better ones out there! It's pretty cheap - I pay about $7 for it at a Chinese grocery store near my house. It does the job - removes all my makeup and mascara, but lately I can't stand the smell. It's over-perfumed and I never feel like my skin is completely clean. It doesn't break me out, but it does leave some sort of residue. I'm going to try Shu Umera or DHC next.

- Cleans well. No trace of makeup left. (Don't know about waterproof mascara. I use a separate eye makeup remover.)
- Smells nice but I'd prefer no scent.
- Doesn't cause breakouts for me.
- Leaves a little oily feeling after rinsed off with just water.
- Contains perfume and alcohol. Though alcohol is listed toward the end of the ingredient list, it's enough to hurt a dry, sensitive skin. My cheeks were dry to flakes after using it for 6 days.
- Too thin and runny (same consistency as MAC). I had to use 3 pumps instead of 1-2 for DHC or Fancl.
- It claims to help dislodge comedones and blackheads. Didn't happen during the 6 days of use.
Don't let the name fool you. This oil is far from perfect.

I think this oil is good and cheap, but is not the best, if you want to expend a little more for better results try DHC oil or the super best LANCOME Bi-facil(winner!), the Shiseido oil don't do the work with my waterproof mascara(MAC), also smells as champagne and i hate alcohol...next time i will use bi-facil if possible...

This is a decent no-frills cleansing oil. It seems to rinse clean without leaving residue behind and does a great job of removing sunscreen, makeup, and mascara. I don't like the size, though -- it's a smallish bottle that doesn't last very long with daily use. I picked this up at a Marukai Japanese market on sale for pretty cheap ($10 or so) but I wouldn't pay more for it. I do like the packaging, though -- although it's a pump bottle, it comes with a little plastic tab that attaches at the neck of the pump to prevent the pump from being depressed. With the tab attached, it's really convenient to travel with.

I've already been using the OCM for years, and this is a very average cleansing oil. It's thin, watery, and you need to use several pumps. Nevertheless it seems to wash off all the makeup. There's nothing that really wows me about it...just gets the job done. Price is a bargain. Don't know why but my bottle started leaking halfway through using the bottle. Will not be purchasing again.

I think this is just okay. It is a good price and does take off stubborn sunscreen and my mascara (which is not waterproof), but I have tried ones I like better (Boscia, Fancl and L'Occitane's almond & apple). It is quite 'thin' and I find myself using 3 pumps, rather than the one or two I use with other oil cleansers. So it is cheaper, but I may run out faster. It does have a faint scent and the scent is okay - not great, but tolerable. I think this may be the deciding factor - I want the products I use to smell great, so this will probably be the reason that I stray. I will probably try the Shiseido ultimate cleansing oil next. It doesn't seem to help or harm my skin, so I may buy it again - at this point, I am on the fence.

I guess it's ok, it gets my makeup off (waterproof mascara and all), but I just don't feel clean after I use this stuff. I've switched to using Kose Softymo hyaluronic acid makeup-remover wipes and my Ponds cleanser and that works a lot better for me personally. I think depending on your skincare routine this might work for some people.

I'm really lazy when it comes to skincare. The laszlo ritual works for me but I needed something to take makeup off in a flash, get my face & pores uber clean & not dry me out (not break me out either). I pondered for a week before I ordered 2 bottles of this & I'm so glad I did. This is the best stuff on earth. This is the 1st cleansing oil I've tried & I love it. The price is right, it does the job & the bottle is pretty cute to boot. I use it w/ DHC's B-mix cream (which got a 50% rating) & almost all my pimples are gone & neutrogena's on the spot treatment. My skin is balanced, starting to glow & my acne is drying up. This is a DEF HG & I'm off to order a couple more bottles right now:)

I bought this after buying the travel-sized bottle of DHC's cleansing oil, and I must say, I like this one a lot better! DHC's was good, but dried out my skin a little, whereas this one did not. It still gets off all of my makeup and ss just as well. This cleanser is mineral oil-based, so it's probably not good for those who are sensitive to it. Anyway, I find that cleansing oils really do rinse cleanly and have helped to loosen up the clogged pores and blackheads that I have, which is a huge plus because that is my major skin problem. I only use this in the evening and follow up with DHC Washing powder which is also great. Love this! Would repurchase.

This cleanser is terrible. After using it for two days, my cheeks severely dried out and my face broke out with large painful zits.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Black
I've used DHC cleansing oil, and Shiseido Ultimate cleansing oil...
And this oil is superior to both. Gets off more makeup, and dries out my skin less.
HOWEVER - beware of the misconception that oil cleansers will hydrate your skin or even be a decent stand alone cleanser.
These oil cleansers are just as drying as normal cleansers, and while good at removing make-up, it still doesn't leave me feeling clean and refreshed. There is a definite film left over.
