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.
Reviewed by 59 customers 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!!
Gentle and soft to sensitive skin
Linds from Portland, OR
I've been using this product for about a week and I can already tell my skin has gotten a lot smoother and it cleared out my face very well. it's gentle and soft so it doesn't strip my natural oil. I'd definitely recommend!!
Would buy again!
Viv from Portland, Oregon
This cleansing oil is amazing! I am a female in my early 20s with combination skin, and I love how this cleanser doesn't strip my skin from it's natural moisture! This oil cleanser is really gentle and soothing and has a clean scent. I find that the cleanser works really well with my skin type. It helps with the dry areas of my face, but also does a good job in cleansing excess oil. After the first use, I immediately noticed that my skin felt really soft and supple. I also have sensitive skin, and I haven't noticed anything after using it for a couple weeks. If you are on the market for an oil cleanser, I would recommend this one!
Works great, good amount for price!
Tanya from Valencia,CA
I use this product to remove my make up and or dirt at the end of the day. Sometimes I use it in the morning as well to brighten/refresh my skin. I tend to have dry/sensitive skin and this cleanser is gentle but powerful enough to exfoliate my dead skin. The smell reminds me of Pledge lemon scented wood cleaner (don't know if that's a good or bad thing)... I'm not sensitive to it which is good. My skin feels soft, supple and hydrated after using. The smell is invigorating and kind of wakes you up as well. I don't feel a residue after which sometimes happens with oil cleansers. I would recommend this product.
Overall, I liked it, here are my thoughts...
Smoon from California
I used this product for a little less than 2 weeks. The first time I used this product I noticed very slight pink color popped up on my cheeks, but quickly dissipated afterwards. I assume that my skin was just unfamiliar to the product, the chemical exfoliant, or the fragrance of citrus orange, but it didn't happen again. I do not tend to wear makeup, so I do not have any notes for the makeup-removing aspects. I liked that it washed off easily and once it came in contact with water, turned into a cloudy milk. I didn't find the PHA to be irritating or sensitizing because it was moderate and mild (just make sure you wear sunscreen!). I would follow up with a water-based cleanser to remove any remaining residue of oil or grime (optional). Overall, it was a good, gentle oil cleanser (minus scent), but because I do not wear makeup I would not repurchase. If the scent does not bother you and you happen to wear makeup, this is a good candidate!

I have used this product for a little less than 2 weeks and have some thoughts I wanted to share. When I first used this product I noticed that this cleansing oil was fairly gentle (as it claims to be), but I did notice that a slight pink popped up on my cheeks, but quickly dissipated. I assume that my skin was just not used to the product, the chemical exfoliant (PHA), or fragrance of citrus orange, but it did not happen again. I do not tend to wear makeup, so I do not have any notes for the makeup-removing aspects. I liked that fact that it washed off easily and once came in contact with water, it turned into a cloudy milk. After using this, I would follow up and remove any extra oil residue with a water-based gentle cleanser (optional). The PHA didn't cause sensitizing problems with my skin (just make sure you wear sunscreen!). I found that because the PHA is very moderate and mild there was no major irritation. Overall, it was a good oil cleanser, but because I do not wear makeup I would not repurchase. Just be aware of the scent, if it does not bother you and you happen to wear makeup, this may be a good candidate for you!
Excellent Cleansing Oil for Sensitive skin
Healthy Skin Enthusiast from Houston, TX
Excellent product! I hosted a spa night so others could use this product. Skin feels clean and rejuvenated after first use. After repeated usage, skin texture became smoother and pores smaller. I hate seeing sebum on my face. This cleanses it away. I do have oiler skin so when I use it and I follow it up with Hanskin's hyaluron bubble pop cleanser and a moisturizer with sunscreen. My skin is perfect!
Smooth and gentle cleanser
Steph from Los Angeles
This is my first oil cleanser that I have tried for my double cleansing routine. I usually use a cleansing balm for the first step, so I love how convenient it is to use a pump instead of scooping out the balm. I love how the oil cleanser makes my face feel soft and smooth. I feel like it really does a deep cleanse on my skin. The only thing I wasn't used to in the beginning was the strong smell! I had to hold my breath when washing my face, but now that I have been using it for a while it doesn't bother me anymore.
Simple, lightweight, and easy to use!
Tiffany from Austin, TX
This product is super lightweight and removes my makeup very gently at the end of the day. I do a double cleanse every night using this first. The smell is nice and fresh, and I actually really like the pump for easy use.
Decent cleansing oil, but could be better
Ollie from Portland, Oregon
Overall, the cleansing oil got off most of my makeup and my skin feels nice after. I also noticed my skin seems brighter and evened out. However, I have some trouble removing my mascara with this cleansing oil. I wish it was a little stronger in terms of cleansing power.
Gentle cleanser that sweeps away makeup
Ann from Long Beach
I have been using this product religiously for nearly three weeks now. I like the oil's refreshing scent when I apply it on my face to remove heavy makeup foundation. I think it does a great job of getting rid of most makeup initially. Afterward, I would apply another facial cleanser to finish clearing up any makeup residues and oil. Overall, I am delighted with the product and plan to continue maintaining it as a part of my regular skincare routine.
Broke me out big time
Rich from Los Angeles
For a start, I have a sensitive skin. I was excited to try this product. I've used it for one week straight . I love how soothing it is and how refreshing it is in the skin. Did the work and melted the makeup away. Broke me out big time,the first week of use . So I temporarily stop using it,healed my face with some aloevera gel and restarted using it again . I'm on my 3rd day now,and so far it's doing it's job and face is clear!
