I have used this cleansing oil for many, many years and absolutely love it! That hasn't changed, but I've noticed on the last 2 bottles that a leak develops around the outside base of the white pump near where it meets the clear bottle. It builds up until it drips down the side of the bottle. I keep my bottle under the sink and just reach in and pump it when needed so I didn't immediately notice this leak, not until it made a real mess. I first thought it was just the last bottle but my current bottle is doing the same thing. It not only is wasting the oil, but it makes a mess and I've had to sit the bottle in a small dish. Still, I love this product!
A bit of background, I've been struggling with a bit of cystic acne and damaged skin barrier during quarantine. I was upset that I was having a glow down so I got disciplined with my skincare routine. I purchased this product a while ago and reintroduced it in a double cleansing regimen. Note: I had a gentle, minimalistic routine for acne with CervaVe, sunscreen, etc. After a month I began to notice my skin was still oily, forming cystic acne yet now it felt dehydrated and started forming SANDPAPER-LIKE-BUMPS. I freaked out and thought it was congestion. I added AHAs/BHAs back in, then my skin was REALLY MAD and the bumps were EVERYWHERE. I couldn't figure out what it was. All I knew was my skin was so much worse, I had acne, the skin barrier was still compromised and no amount of moisturizer was fixing the texture. I spent a few months playing with product elimination and when I removed this my skin softened up after two washes!!! This was literally cleaning off my skin barrier. In retrospect I realized this was consistently stripping my skin, even when my skin was healthy.
Overall, Just because it works well doesn't mean it's good for you. And although it's a customer favorite notice that it's never been recommended by a dermatologist or skincare specialist.
I found this product when I was living in Japan (my husband was in the Air Force and stationed there) and this was/still is my holy grail makeup remover. I'm so happy that they carry it at Ulta because literally nothing compares to it. Since being stateside I've tried stepping away from it and trying other products but I always come back to this oil cleanser. It melts away makeup, even waterproof mascara, and lash glue, and is so gentle on the skin. I have very sensitive and acne prone skin and this oil doesn't disturb my skin barrier at all. It also contains vitamin E which is a plus at hydration! It's pricey but definitely worth it.
This "deep cleansing oil" is anything but. This oil does not touch regular mascara, so I'm sure it's useless on waterproof mascara. I got long wearing liquid lip and it took many tries to remove it with this oil. Maybe I got a defective batch, because it doesn't work as a cleanser. I honestly wonder how it got positive reviews. Maybe some of reviews are fake.
I really wanted to love this. Heard so many people raving about this product on tiktok, youtube, etc. I have normal/combo skin, and this did not work well. The biggest thing, it caused a breakout on my face. I have it two weeks, maybe my skin needed to get used to it. But nothing, my skin just got worst. Milia (tiny bumps on your face) also started surfacing once I started using this product. Not to mention, it look a solid 10 minutes to completely get my makeup off with this product. It stung my eyes, and was incredibly hard to work with. It also left my skin feeling stiff. I'm still looking for a good oil cleanser in my double cleaning routine, but trust me when I want to say steer away from this. You're better off using a better (and affordable) cleansing balm from the inky list. I'm going to be returning this.
I was hesitant to try oil based cleansers as I have oily skin, however, I love the way my skin feels after using this. It gets through even the heaviest of makeup days, and smells really nice as well. I recommend this to everyone I know, and the big bottle lasts a wicked long time!
I love cleaning oil and balms. This one seemed heavy and I got tiny bumps and zits all over the face.
As for removing makeup, it does a pretty good job.
