This is a really great cleansing oil. Two pumps removes all my makeup, even water proof mascara. It's easy to rinse and doesn't leave a film or sticky residue. Oil is my preferred makeup removal and this might be the best one I've tried. It's a bit pricey but not out outrageous for a good oil. Plus, it lasts forever so you do get a good value of out it.

Cleansing oil has always been a staple in my skincare routine as there isn't any other quicker option for me in my experience to remove makeup thoroughly. It takes 5 - 10 seconds to rub a few drops of cleansing oil on my face and eyes, and then 5 - 10 seconds of emulsifying it, and what you have after is a face that you can be sure that has no more residue of sunscreen, base, oil, and dirt.

That is, if the product in question happens to be a well crafted one.

And the DHC Cleansing Oil is one such example. I can tell the oil is well refined (similar to Tatcha's cleansing oil) because after washing it off, there isn't any residue like Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil. This cleansing oil is so effective that I can just use this in the evening after a night of wearing full makeup, go to bed, and not worry about any aftereffects like clogged comedones/whiteheads. It has a very mild olive oil scent that I'm not the biggest fan of but it dissipates upon emulsification.

Out of pure habit I tend to prefer double cleansing, but I would say you can get away with just using this alone. It leaves my skin fresh and soft, not dry or too moisturized at all, just very well balanced and even.

A note about the price: It's a mid-range product and worth every penny, and imo you tend to get what you pay for with skincare. You can choose from three different sizes, including a travel size with a pump. I couldn't ask for more! I tend to go through it rather quickly (1.5 to 2 pumps per application) but that's because I really love the efficiency of this product.

A note about my skin type: Combination to oily, prone to whiteheads and pigmentation.

Anytime I use full makeup or mascara and require something 'heavy duty' to remove it all with, this has been my go-to cleansing oil. You apply it to dry skin and with dry hands, massage it in (it will quickly emulsify), rinse with warm water and follow with a normal cleanser to remove any remaining residue. On its own it does a pretty decent job but still requires a foam or gel cleanser after.
One of the good things about this is it helps skin retain its moisture. Even after you have double-cleansed there is still a degree of hydration imparted by the cleansing oil that lingers...which is great as I end up using less moisturizer afterwards. I do have a few different cleansing oils to try out as soon as I get a chance but from all the ones I've already tried this seems to be working out quite well for my skin.

This was the very first cleansing oil that I have used, and I used this for about 6 months before switching to something else. I kept resisting from writing a review a week into using it since I loved it at the time, and was concerned that I was in the product honeymoon phase.

Pros:
Takes any waterproof mascara off
Takes sunscreen off
Unscented (smells like olive oil)
Rinses clean, no oily residue

Cons:
Price
Left my dry skin dry

If you want to try a cleansing oil, this is a good one to start with as there are a very few ingredients and it does rinse clean (no oily residue). I stopped using this is because of two things: price, and it felt a little dry after I used this. However, I don't feel the same dryness when I use Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm or Banila Co. Clean It Zero Purity. Between the price and the way it felt on my skin, I'm not going to repurchase. If your skin is on the more oily side it might be good.

This is a great first cleanse to remove heavy makeup, including eye makeup. Doesn’t bother my eyes, or break me out, though I always follow with another cleanser.

I'm used to gentle facial cleansers like Cetaphil and Neutrogena because they don't dry my skin. I read about DHC deep cleansing oil and got curious how Japanese rave about this product. I was bored with my usual cleansers so I decided to buy this one just to try it out.

At first I hesitated to buy it because it's pricey for a small bottle. I bought it for like 30+ aud and I seriously felt guilty after lol. However, the benefit of this cleanser is really good because I can totally tell that it cleanses my face! With Cetaphil and Neutrogena I had to use makeup remover to get thorough cleaning but with DHC it removed my makeup so quickly and easily! It also didn't dry my skin and I had no break outs or anything after use.

It took me months to use up all the bottle but I still find this expensive that I looked for a cheaper alternative (Palmer's oil cleanser). However, I didn't have the same satisfaction so I am definitely going back to DHC.

So yeah, the only reason I'm not giving this a 5 star is because of its price. Although I only need a small amount of oil to clean my face, it would be better to pay for that price with a bigger bottle.

This is a great basic cleansing oil that removes to toughest of waterproof mascaras. It does look and smell like olive which im not a huge of, also it is on the pricey side. I feel like I can get similar results with cheaper options so I wont be repurchasing.

I know many people raved about this product, but it was disappointing for me because it was so dry on my skin after doing the first cleanse. I could barely continue with a second cleanse because of the stinking tight uncomfortable feeling. I tested as a hand wash and there was obviously a gritty oxidized grease feeling after rinsing. I would not put that on my face if i had known earlier. I still kept it in my bathroom as lip makeup remover, but not for waterproof mascara because it does not do its job. Just no amount of tugging and rubbing removed any trace of my waterproof mascara.

If you have a budget and have sensitive skin, drop this and get the Sensitive Muji Oil Cleansing for a huge fraction of the full cost of the DHC cleansing oil. That is my HG cleanser in helping me remove my sunscreen during nighttime without all the pain.

Amazing...I am now part of the fanclub! My skin is very intolerant and sensitive. Oily and dry, flaky and red during the winter.
I wash my face ONCE a day, at night. This is perfect: it smells like olive oil, rinses very easily and leaves no residue. usually, right after washing my face, i HAVe to moisturize right away. After using this cleansing oil, my skin feels soft and hydrated. Of course I still use my Toleriane riche lotion but still, this is a considerable improvment!
I love it.

I've using this on and off since my teenage years (so more than half of my life) and love using this to remove my makeup. It allows me to remove all the makeup (save eyemakeup) without tugging or rubbing. I still double cleanse with face wash after using this oil, but this is a significant step in my night time cleansing routine and does a much better job than olive oil or coconut oil alone. I've tried many cleansing balms and oil and always return to this. It's not PERFECT, so I'll keep looking around, but I keep coming back because at its price point, ingredients (cleaner than many cleansers out there) and effectiveness (remove makeup and sunscreen without too much rubbing), it's one of the best currently out there. I'll repurchase.
