Most Helpful Positive Review Like a Mini Facial!
I used this product for a few weeks and noticed my skin felt softer and slightly brighter. Since my skin is acne prone and I have never tried an oil cleanser before, I was still using my normal cleanser after to avoid any breakouts. My skin remained clear thankfully. It also felt softer and smelled great even after using another cleanser. I live in a dry climate so I think that it is a perfect nighttime cleanser to refresh after a long day. The oil reminds me of professional facial treatments I have had (prior to stay at home orders) that included a facial massage and aromatherapy. The smell to me was the best part! It was on the stronger side but had an amazing complex citrus smell that felt refreshing and energizing. I can be sensitive to perfume fragrance smells that can trigger migraines so I appreciated this natural fruit smell. I can see though if you do not like any fragrance then you should avoid this product because it is strong and lasting. I also thought the pump was well designed, no dripping after using which was surprising for such a silky, oily product. Overall I thought the product was high quality and impressive. My concern would be the warning on the label about sun exposure however it might be worth extra diligence on sunscreen in my sunny climate since it is also a dry climate. If this product could contain a sunscreen somehow and still have all the same benefits it would be absolutely perfect.
Most Helpful Critical Review Lightweight cleanser, good for winter months
I used this product for a week and didn't love it or hate it. The smell was a nice, citrus smell that reminded me of Froot Loops. It's lightweight and I was surprised at how nice and clean my skin felt after using it. It didn't particularly help with my breakouts, and left my skin seemingly more oily throughout the day. I think this product would be best used for make up removal, during winter months when your skin is more dry, or for skin that isn't acne prone.

rllyblond from los angeles
no, this oil didn't disappear my pores but my goal was to incorporate an oil cleanser / salicylic acid toner (witch hazel am, stridex red box pm) / vitamins (TO niacimide + zinc am, "Buffet" pm) into my regimen to help keep my pores clear and look smaller. it's been working great! so far so good, my first oil cleanser but i love it and i think it's well worth the price. plus you really don't need much so this bottle will last quite some time!
i wasn't buying this to use to remove heavy eye makeup -i still use coconut oil to remove mascara- but this does a great job at getting the rest of my everyday makeup or thicker sunscreens off. if you're looking for something that melts your make up right off, i'm not sure this product will do that just heads up.
bexter from Pennsylvania
I received a free sample of this and it's pricy but i will definitely purchase the full size.
it takes off everything. I massage it on my face, rinse, and then wash my face. It takes off waterproof mascara and dermablend primer and setting powder and
this oil smells amazing but the fragrance doesn't linger like some artificial fragrances do. leaves my skin soft and hydrated and I am very prone to acne but I have had no breakouts after wearing makeup since I got this product

GREAT PRODUCT, AWFUL DELIVERY
bunny from Charlotte, NC
I absolutely LOVE this oil cleanser! I don't wear makeup, I just use is in my 2-step cleansing routine. noticable difference in a few days. really helps my oily skin.
HOWEVER, it leaked out during transport and about 1/4 of it had spilled out into the box. the box was soaked with it.
The bottle is breakable
Zel from Downey
As much as I loved using this product, I was so sad when it rolled off my counter and just cracked opened. All of the remaining product splattered everywhere :( I would buy it again if they redesigned the packaging
A miracle oil
C_Light from Gainesville,Fl
This is such a good oil cleanser to use for makeup removing my use of makeup on my face is sometimes more heavy then others. However where I fell in love with this product is when it took my complete makeup job I did on my face which I will say is was quite heavy and stripped it down to nothing! Obviously a 2nd cleanser to follow is needed however this did an amazing job! I was worried at first because it felt like I was putting baby oil on my face when I rinsed my face with water immediately the oil feeling went away and I was not left with an oily face! I take off one star tho because the product does say it's fragrance free however I smell a lemon scent everything I use the oil cleanser.
step 1 cleanser awesome pores cleansing
Keir from los Angeles
I got this as a sample. I use it as step 1 cleansing. It dissolves the buildup in my pores and black head. I put it on without water before I get in the shower and tub it into my skin and then lightly scrub at my spine by dragging my nails across my skin and the buildup adheres to the oil and is lifted out. I then get into the shower and utilize the emulsive effect to wash away all my makeup and the buildup. I then go in with Formula 10.0.06 facial polisher Its a buzz and gently exfoliate again and follow up with with my last cleanser from Formula 10.0.06 foaming cleanser and lather it up to finish my 3 step cleansing process. After, my pores are amazingly clean. I use a toner and moisturize and my skin is so soft and smooth. love this stuff going to buy a bottle. it reminds me of Julep's cleansing oil. I like the lemon balm scent. its strong, but therapeutic and the oil is effective.
best oil cleanser
I love Korean skincare from Massachusetts
I have tried several pills cleaners and this by far is my favorite. The weight of the oil is great, it doesn't irritate my eyes, I can open them after breaking up my eyeliner and mascara and not have foggy vision after. I will continue to purchase this product.
Finally Something That Takes Off Makeup
Echo from Springfield, OR
This oil removes makeup instead of just smearing it around. It's not perfect because it feels like it strips your skin but my skin care routine counters that. The smell is a bit strong but not enough to keep me from repurchasing. Overall I think its a good buy for size, price, and quality
K from Michigan
Way too much fragrance and stripped my face.
Bmichelle from PENNSYLVANIA
I have been religiously using this for a month every night to double cleanse. I'll also state that I'm 26, with combo/oily acne prone skin, I would not say my skin is sensitive. It does have fragrance but it doesn't bother me, as it's not on my face long enough and I wash with a cleanser after using it. It removes all of my makeup including my mascara! Previously I was using dermalogica precleanse, but it's expensive compared to the amount that I get with this one, and it this removes my makeup just as effectively. I do find that if I'm wearing mascara I have to use 1.5-2 pumps. If I'm not wearing mascara I can do just 2 pump. Also after using it for a month I still have 3/4 of the bottle left, compared to dermalogica I had to purchase every 1.5 months or so! I will definitely be repurchasing this cleanser!
Great cleanser, horrible scent
Mai from California
I use this to double cleanse and it takes off my makeup pretty well! Will keep looking for other cleansing oils though because this one has a scent that I particularly do not like. It has an "old grandma" scent that lingers on your face for a while(and not in a good way). But it's pretty practical and does its job, so if you aren't sensitive to fragrances, definitely recommend this.
I would buy this again and again
Charry from Bay Area
I'm not one to splurge on skincare products but I will keep buying this if I ever find a better oil cleanser. Oil cleansing is fairly new to me and I was so excited to try this since I struggle with blackheads and textured skin. This product helped soooo much with giving the "glass skin look" and getting rid of most of my blackheads. I oil cleanse about 2-3 times a week and it's really changed the appearance of my skin , all while leaving it soft and supple. I also like to use this product as a makeup remover and it works so well. I love this product and I know others will too.
Great cleanser for sensitive skin!
Sarah from San Jose, CA
I use this product for two weeks now. At first I was a bit hesitant to use it since my skin is acne prone and thought using this product would produce more breakouts. However, my skin did not breakout that much. I love how this cleanser left my skin feeling nice, clean and smooth. It is very gentle on skin and works great!
Light and removes ALL make up residue
Soo from Los Angeles
I use this cleanser as a prewash and it is so perfect. It's very light and removes all that left over make up residue from my eyeliner and mascara. I don't have to use q-tips anymore. I gently rub some of this on and lightly exfoliate. I love the fact that it doesn't have an oily feel after you rinse it. Once you apply water, it turns lightly milky (which I actually like) and I rinse until the water turns clear. I have sensitive skin and I've been using this for a month! So far, I LOVE IT!
Perfect for sensitive skin and removing make up residue
Connie from Los Angeles
I use this cleanser as a prewash and it's PERFECT. I love this product because it removes all the residue (esp. waterproof eyeliner and mascara) from my make up. You can see the difference! It is very light and not thick. It rinses out quickly and turns white with water. The light scent to it makes it better for me. I personally like this especially since I have sensitive skin.
Irene from Los Angeles, CA
It is my first time using a cleansing oil, but I am amazed by the experience with this product. I personally like the smell and I love that I don't have to double cleanse - it takes off everything. After washing, the oil leaves a moist finish on my skin. One thing I would suggest is to secure the cap when shipping as there was a little bit of leaking when I first opened the package.
No More Double Cleanse
Pearly skin from Riverside, CA
I am typically an individual that likes to double cleanse, but with this product it isn't really necessary. The PHA is a mild exfoliant, but the product is a tad bit more viscous for those who enjoy thinner oil cleansers. I felt this oil cleanser did not strip of my entire natural face oils and it was easy for me to jump right into my normal skincare routine after cleansing. The scent was not strong and the product lasted a decent while!
Wanted to try an oil cleanser
Amanda from Idaho
I typically try to avoid anything with oil since I already deal with oily skin throughout the day. A friend was raving about this and even though it went against my 'no oil' rule I figured I'd give it a try! I was surprised at how big the bottle was when I received it, it will definitely last for quite some time because a little goes a long way. After trying it out, I wasn't a fan of how it made my face feel right afterwards, so I did still use my normal face wash right after. It does take makeup off well though, so I was happy about that! I wouldn't use it as my daily cleanser but would definitely use it on heavier makeup days!
Can't Beat It
Nikki from ND
This is the only oil cleanser I'll use. It's effective, it does it's job quickly, breaks down makeup just as well as any other oil cleanser I've used (I've used a lot.)
But the money you pay for both the effectiveness and the amount? I've never seen an oil cleanser of this size. I can pay a similar price for less than half this size.
I also have sensitive skin, and it doesn't break me out. I was a little worried since it seems to be a little fragranced, but I've finished one bottle (it took me about 6 months) and I'm on my second bottle.
New FAVORITE Cleanser
Clarisa from Castro Valley
Found my new favorite cleanser!
I'm new to the oil cleanser trend because I've always been hesitant about adding oil to myself in fear of breakouts.
Upon first use of this product, I noticed that one pump of product is enough to spread over your face. Just wet your hand, add a pump of cleanser and gently rub your face. This product effectively takes off ALL my makeup while also hydrates my skin! My cleansing process has never been a significant part of my skincare routine... BUT IT IS NOW. My skin feels clean AND supple after using this product. I know some people like to double cleanse, but tbh i'm lazy to do that and one cleanse with this product is enough for me.
Additionally, I can already tell this product will last SO long. It's been a month since i've used this product once a day and it looks like i barely touched it. Definitely worth the money.
The product does have a light citrus scent which may bother some people. I actually like the scent as it is very very fresh!
Highly reccommend this product to anyone who is looking for a hydrating and affordable oil cleanser.
Gentle & does the job!
Ica C. from CA
I double cleanse every night. This product does a good job of removing all my make up. On days I wear light make up, I use one pump, rub it in my hands, and work the product into my skin. It's very gentle, and works very well! I don't feel like I need to rub my skin off just to get the make up off. I've used it to remove my mascara and found that it doesn't irritate my eyes. It's a great product to use as the first step to double cleansing!
Great Cleansing Experience
Allison from Chicago, IL
I love using this product. I love the scent; it is lemony and fresh. And I love the way it feels. I've used oil cleansers before but I really like the way this one feels...and it leaves my face "squeaky clean". I typically use an eye make-up remover prior to the Pore Cleansing Oil as it doesn't remove eye make-up very well. After a couple weeks of using, my face looks good. My pores look smaller, and I had a dry patch on my face that is no longer there.
Decent oil cleanser
AnneL from Chicago, IL
Been using this for about two weeks and I can't seem to love it. It does remove dirt and some makeup but I don't like the fact that I have to then use another cleanser after this oil one. I'm more of a one step cleanser gal and oil based cleanser just doesn't give me that same squeaky cleaning feeling like other cleansers that I've used in the past. I do like the scent and feeling of it though.
Gentle to skin and doesn't strip out natural oil
Linds from Portland, OR
I've been using this product for about a week and i'm in love with the product!! It's gentle for my skin and leaves skin very nice and smooth. it doesnt strip out natural oil and i'd definitely recommend it!!
