Most Helpful Positive Review Love Deep Cleansing Oil but lately....
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!
Most Helpful Critical Review Too striping. My skin turned into SANDPAPER over long term
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.
Reviewed by 936 customers Not good for oily/ acne prone skin
staz from CA
I always had very minimal acne before my skin got messed up from using this product. I originally bought this product because I wanted to try out oil cleansing. I didn't know much about oil cleansing when I purchased it but I soon found out that this product is not suitable for oily skin/ acne prone skin. At first I thought it was working for me but in about 2 weeks I started to get small bumps around my face. After continued use my pores got even more clogged and they quickly became very inflamed. Moral of the story: do your research before you buy skin care, in this case, make sure the oil is suitable for your skin type.

I use this every morning. I have been using this for years. I have oily skin, but using this in the morning seems like helping my oily skin under control better.
Amazing cleansing oil
J.A. Beautie20 from NY
I absolutely love this cleansing oil. it I use it to remove my makeup and no matter what I'm wearing this will get it off, without an oily residue left after washing it off.
I would buy again

Great for double cleansing

I use this every evening to wash my face before moisturizing
My New Favorite
Lara from Willow Grove, PA
This is a great makeup remover/first step in my double cleansing routine.
I tried the mini from a previous Ulta skin sample set and fell in love.
I used to use micellar water as a first step but not anymore. No more wasted product and no more going through loads of cotton pads.
A little goes a long way so it takes a while to use up.

Double cleansing has becoming my best friend! I also love how easily it rinses off
Horrible for your skin
Scarlet from Los Angeles
I started using this product this summer since I wanted to start double cleansing. It does takes your blackheads out, so at first I was happy with it. However, it strips the rest of your skin too. I've always struggled with minor hormonal acne (1-2 pimples a month) but aside from that my skin was generally nice and not sensitive. I used to have clear glowing skin that looked good without foundation. But this DHC oil RUINED my skin. All summer, my face has been dry, flaky, sensitive, irritated, dull, and worst of all, I broke out in cystic acne all over my cheeks and chin. I had to start wearing foundation to cover it, which obviously only made it worse.
At first I thought maybe this was due to the stress of working 60 hour weeks during the pandemic, but for 3 months things kept getting worse. I finally removed this oil from my cleansing regimen at the advice of my dermatologist and my skin is already SO much better. The acne it caused will take another month to clear and will probably scar, but my texture is already back to its old baby smoothness, and my face doesn't feel irritated all the time anymore. All I use is a gentle face wash now - sometimes less is more. Please learn from my mistakes and be gentle to your skin.
The one saving grace of this oil is that it's great for cleaning makeup brushes. But it's basically olive oil so I would not recommend using it on your face.
Go to cleansing oil
Reya from As
Out of all the cleaning oils I've tried, this is the best. Keep coming back to it. Get it when it's half off during the beauty sale!
LOVE LOVE LOVE This Product!!
Katie from Nashville, TN
I have used this oil for years and years and I will never be without it! This formula is fantastic and has never changed. It's the perfect 1 step cleanser if I've not worn makeup that day but if I've worn full makeup, it's the perfect 1st step for makeup removal before you cleanse. You massage the oil into dry skin (weird, I know) but if you wet your hands or apply to a wet face, it will break up the oil and start to wash it away...it wont work. TIP: soften your mascara with warm water before you use the oil and it will cleanse every iota completely away. I highly recommend this oil!
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil surpass any other remover
anonymous from Bronx, NY
I love the way the Deep Cleansing Oil totally removes all traces of my make-up. I have tried numerous make-up removers & no brand can compare to DHC.
I wanted to love it
Christina B from New Jersey
I wanted to love it but it doesn't even take my eye makeup off!! I scrub and lather and nothing !!!
Nice first cleanse
MaryJ from Indiana
This was thicker than I expected, but leaves my skin feeling nice and not greasy. I do use another cleanser afterwards. It does a good job of getting makeup off.
I would totally buy this again, but.....
Nabz from Pittsburgh
I really do enjoy this product for a double cleanse. However, I feel like I could've just used olive oil to take my makeup off and get the same results.
The Best Cleanser on the Market!
anonymous from undisclosed
I have been using Deep Cleansing Oil for years now. I love how it makes my skin feel and look.
It is a gentle, but deep cleaning oil. Love it!
The best oil cleanser!
J from Las Vegas
I use as my first step in double cleansing in my nightly routine. A little goes a long way and you usually only need one pump. Makes your skin silky soft and doesn't really have a scent so its great for those that don't like scent.
I love the Deep Cleansing Oil!
anonymous from Colorado
The Deep Cleaning Oil is great in the shower! It gets your face clean in a gentle way without drying your skin! Thank you DHC!
Dry & Sensitive Skin's Best Friend

Exactly what sensitive, dry skin needs. Works better than any other moisturizer I've had while taking off makeup and dirt.
two days of using it and
Rabab from Edison, New Jersey
I used the oil for two days and i had small breakouts on my forehead and cheek. I wear the n95 all day since i am a nurse so I'm not sure if that caused the cheek breakout. It smells just like olive oil. I had to step back and think did someone replace the product. I enjoy tacha so much more.
been using for 20+ years

Meianie from Philly, PA
I was looking for an oil cleanser and my skin was clear before using. After using for over two weeks my face is covered in painful pimples. I'm extremely disappointed at how badly my skin reacted.
