    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil:

    One step face cleaning, smooth, non drying

    Maybe better in a cream, oil tends to run and use too much to get job done.

    Have very dry skin so I thought I'd give this product a try to clean and remove makeup. Sometimes I have to use eye makeup remover also esp when I have been out, but not for everyday.

    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil:

    I specifically bought this product because of the rave reviews about using it to gently remove makeup. It did not remove makeup at all. Instead it spread it around and made a huge mess of my face, which then necessitated me using my regular makeup remover after all. This is strange because I use physician's formula natural mascara, which pretty much comes off with water alone. Yet it was more difficult to remove with this mineral make up remover cleanser. I tried this product daily for over a week. Bottom line, this was ineffective and not worth the money. A real disappointment because I really expected to love it. I returned it.

        Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil:

        I purchased this cleanser as an alternative to Dermalogica Precleanse. I have to say that I will be returning to Dermalogica after I finish this bottle. I use the oil cleanser as my first step before my cream cleanser. This particular cleanser seems to take more rinsing and wiping of my face before I can move to the next step in my cleansing process. It isn't a bad product by any means, but I have noticed a few more breakouts with this product than with the precleanse.

          Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil:

          I don't understand why cleansing oils aren't more popular in the US. When I used my first "true" cleansing oil, I was hooked completely. There isn't anything other cleanser than removes makeup as thoroughly and gently, PLUS rinses off so easily it's like it wasn't on your face. Philosophy's cleansing oil is the only one I've found that comes close to my favorites from Japanese brands.

                I love purology, and use the face wash and moisturizers daily--but i was disappointed with this product. It did a poor job removing my mascara, and irritated my eyes.

                Absolutely gorgeous texture, very silky on the skin, not greasy feeling. Perfectly removes all makeup, every last trace of mascara, rinses off easily. My skin feels so soft, smooth and clean afterward. Love!!!

                  Run far away from this oil. It's full of irritating essential oils including pepper and cinnamon oil! I should have checked the ingredient list before buying because it caused a major eruption on my forehead. It had to go back...

                  Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free Facial Cleansing Oil:

                  I'm new to oil cleansing, so I didn't want to spend a ton of money to try it. I decided on the purity oil since I love the one step cleanser already and it's reasonably priced. The first time I used it, I could tell that this removed more oil and makeup from my face than my regular cleanser, and it took half as much product and effort. It literally melts my makeup off, including my stubborn mascara! On the bottle it says to smooth it on with slightly damp fingers, but I prefer to use dry hands to apply and then get it wet to emulsify & remove it. If your hands are already damp it starts to get milky and run down your hands, face and neck. I've been using this product for about 3 weeks, and my skin actually gets LESS oily throughout the day. I will be buying this for my sisters to try at Christmas. I'm hooked on this stuff!

                    I am new to cleansing Oil and since I have sensitive, oily, and acne-prone skin I was a little worried to try them. I absolutely love this product!

                    I use this product at night when I am cleaning my face before bed and it takes off all my makeup without leaving any sort of residue! It doesn't break me out or leave me oily. It balances my natural oils and my face feels better after I use it. I would highly recommend this to a friend!
