Most Helpful Positive Review Loving It So Far
I have used and love DHC's cleansing oil but I wanted to try something a bit more affordable and accessible. Then I seen this new cleansing oil & it seemed like a great product.
There's no alarming ingredients or skin irritating ingredients. No weird smell. The bottle is sleek, you get a good amount of product for its price point and the pump is great. I was oddly calm and appreciative of the fact that this oil is clear (I'm sure that doesn't matter a ton though) and it was easy to spread. I could physically feel this sloughing off my day products and it rinsed off fine with lukewarm water before I followed with my SA cleanser.
It's advertised as a Japanese skincare product so I'm hoping it works out as well as they're known for. Upon my initial use, I did not experience any concerning issues. It's difficult to say if this will have a different effect with continued use but my first impression is that I am glad I tried this oil.
Tips on use: Pump onto dry hands & work into dry face gently using up and outward motions. Use lukewarm water to work in a little at a time and turn oil milky. Once you've rinsed all the oil off, follow with a traditional cleanser suited for your skincare needs. If you do not follow with a glycerin cleanser you will feel residuals of this oil; a 2nd cleanser is necessary.
Most Helpful Critical Review Would not purchase
It's in a nice bottle with a pump that made it super easy to use. Directions on box were followed. I found it to go on very smoothly (duh, it's oil), however, I did not find that it removed my makeup very well. It would not take off mascara, eye liner or my 24 hour lipstick without scrubbing a bit too hard. I thought I was doing something wrong, so, re-read directions. Yep, I was doing what the directions said do and it was not working well enough to remove the makeup. I had to supplement with my Clinique makeup remover to get it off! Before using the Clinique, I did feel the Curel left my skin feeling soft. I did put some mascara and liner and lipstick on the top of my hand and took a gauze pad with the Curel on it and tried to remove it from my hand and about had to rub my skin off. I probably would not buy this product. There are others that work much better.

This is my second purchase of this oil based cleanser. I love it because it's unscented and it's a good first step in my cleansing routine to get the grime loosened up. I use it to get the cleansing started because it's mild. Then, I use my regular Neutrogena cleanser to finish the job.
Curel magic cleansing oil
Lydia19711 from USA
Curel make up cleansing oil is a fantastic product. It thoroughly cleansing your skin without drying it out. It removes all traces of make up and especially great with removing long lasting make up products. It left my skin feeling hydrated and not the usual tight dryness most soaps leave. I highly recommend this product.
Definitely Part of My Skincare Routine
Shellyb06147 from USA
Hi sweeties! This Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil is definitely part of my skincare routine! Normally I have to scrub and scrub and scrub again to get all makeup off. Not any more. This cleansing oil lifts even long wear makeup right off! My skin is clean, fresh and super soft! I have sensitive skin and have not got any redness or irritation at all! And a little goes a long way so this bottle will last me a long time!

I thought I was doing something wrong, so, re-read directions. I did feel the Curel left my skin feeling soft. It leaves your skin feeling so moisturized which is great for my dry skin! I definitely recommend.

Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil does a hydrating job of cleaning my face! My face is cleaned from makeup and the daily oils but does not feel tight or irritated!
Gentle Cleansing Oil
Melpen6104 from USA
This is a great cleansing oil that is gentle on the skin. I love this type of product and found it removed my makeup easily. The fact that it is a pump was a bonus.
I will definitely continue to use this as part of my daily routine and would highly recommend it.
Does the job
Tiffanysreviews7 from USA
Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil did a good job removing my makeup. It's lightweight and didn't leave a greasy feeling afterwards. The main ingredient is mineral oil which is very inexpensive so I don't understand why this product has such a high price tag. I have used products with similar formulations that do the same job at half the price.
Mikirem1 from USA
I was really happy with results of this cleansing oil. It gently removed all of my makeup while not drying out my skin. It didn't smell great but it had a nice creamy lather that really cleaned my skin.
moorekidz1610 from USA

Hydrate and Clarify
Sweeton773 from USA
Curel oil removes all make-up and mascara. I generally would use oils to remove mascara only. The oil applied to my face and eye lids to remove mascara is effortless. The product has a very light and soothing fragrance.
Good bang for your buck
Rniks1 from USA
This seems like a product that's truly a good bang for you buck. There's no overwhelming scent. It removes my makeup but still leaves my skin hydrated. It's a generous sized bottle and a great pump. So far, so good. I would recommend it to all my friends and family.
Does Excellent Job Removing Makeup
Cortney184 from USA
Removing makeup (especially mascara) has become much easier since using Curél Makeup Cleansing Oil. I have oily skin and since this is an oil, I was concerned it would keep my skin oily. I'm happy to say that it didn't. After applying, I use a warm washcloth to remove and my skin is left feeling renewed. There is no residue left behind.
Great makeup remover
Val23G3 from USA
The Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil left my face feeling clean and moisturized. It doesn't have much of a scent which is nice. It took all of my makeup off with ease. I was really impressed. It doesn't dry out my skin at all neither. Overall, it is becoming one of my favorite makeup removing products for daily use.
Leaves Your Skin Off Better Than It Was
Annie626 from USA
I was really concerned that using a makeup removing might cause drying of my skin or might leave an oily residue that might clog my pores. Pleasantly neither of those problems happened. In fact the Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil left my skin moisturized, without causing any breakout at all. I also did not need to scrub my skin harshly.
Curel provided a gentle foaming cleansing experience, that removed all the makeup in one cleansing session.
I highly recommend Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil. At the end of the day I looked forward removing my makeup at the end of the day.
On those special nights out. I would use Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil, and it left my skin with a clean palette to reapply makeup for a night out.
Great Cleansing Oil!
Julzinha7 from USA
The Curél Makeup Cleansing Oil is super effective at removing all my makeup. I decided to try this on a day where I did a full face and it removed all of my foundation, eye shadow, lipstick, and mascara without drying out my skin. I only wish that the oil used in the product was something other than mineral oil.
Teener3 from USA
The Curél Makeup Cleansing Oil did such a great job of removing my makeup without making my skin feel dry and tight after. I like that you put it on dry so you can really see where you're cleansing and it gets so milky when you add water. It feels luxurious and really does a great job of melting away the built up makeup.
Good cleansing oil
JLynn6 from USA
I have oily skin so I was skeptical about trying a cleansing oil but surprisingly it has been very effective for me. Works great at removing makeup and mascara. Left my skin feeling soft.
Brandy139 from USA
I received the Curél Makeup Cleansing Oil and was quite impressed. It worked very well but the product is a bit heavy for my already oily complexion.
Stylez4 from USA
I have received the product and have used it a few works good I would tell someone with more oils in there skin
Lmgriff8 from USA
The Curel Makeup Cleansing Oil did a great job at removing my makeup. It was like the makeup just melted right off. I followed it up with a regular cleanser and only had to do it once and everything was removed. I would definitely recommend this cleansing oil to anyone.
