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.

I love this product!!! Compared to other make up removers that break me out, this product removed my makeup with ease. The one thing that I should mention, like others have mentioned, is that it tends to dry out your face after using it. I moisturize immediately after using this product!
I simply love this product!
Hautechocolaate from Florida
This makeup remover is the best I've ever tried...and I've tried a lot!! It's so simple and not irritating that you just can't go wrong with using this. I wear a lot of makeup and it takes it all off effortlessly! It definitely does smell like olive oil but that didn't bother me at all. I also loved that I dont even have to use more than 1 1/2 pumps to get my makeup off and it doesn't leave your face feeling stripped or dry.
Love this oil!

I've been impressed with this oil. I've been using it to remove my make up and have found its leaving my skin plump, smooth and is also helping with scarring.
Breaks down makeup and skin feels super soft
Morgan from New Jersey
I bought this as a trail size first. I found this product through a Youtuber I follow that reviews makeup. She exampled how well this oil breaks down makeup and you will never need makeup wipes! So freaking true ! I absolutely love this product. Believe the reviews ! It breaks down all my makeup with 2 pumps on dry skin. It legit melts away any dirt, and than I follow with my regular cleanser. Truly an investment. The trail size also has lastest me 5 months and I use it about once to twice a week as a makeup remover ! Must have !
Maria from tyler
nice oil to take my makeup off with & doesn't break me out, doesn't always help completely take off my waterproof mascara but overall not bad
Simply the best make-up remover.
Valerie from Jacksonville, Florida
The best make-up remover EVER! It even works well on waterproof mascara and rinses so clean. I haven't come across anything better and I have tried many.
Great product, great value.
anonymous from Oregon
Oil cleansing method is the best for me. I use tinted sunscreen almost daily with concealer. This cleanser takes it all off. Rinses easily. Been using this product for years.
Nae Moore from Bay Area
I love!! My esthetician suggested to double cleanse, facial oil then face wash. Glad I added it to my nightly routine. My skin looks less congested and it removes make up easily
It works really well for me
Jae S from San Jose, CA
I bought this about a few months ago. I was contemplating for a long while on whether or not I should buy it. I'm glad that I got it now. It helps get rid of the impurities or whatever it is on my face.
Strange smell but seems great otherwise!
Saw8686 from Illinois
Am I the only one who thinks this cleansing oil smells like fried chicken oil? lol..
Otherwise this cleansing oil works great. It seems gentle on my sensitive skin. A thinner consistency then other cleansing oils I've tried in the past (some are just too thick and messy). Skin felt moisturized after my normal gentle cleanser.

This stuff is amazing. Leaves your skin feeling so amazing

I keep coming back to this oil as a first step in cleansing. It's just plain does a great job.

I work at Ulta and recently asked my coworkers for good cleansers for dry skin! One recommended the travel size and I repurchased this! It doesn't cause my skin to breakout and keeps it incredibly soft while hydrating (but not to the point where it's oily!) I use Clinique's Clarifying Lotion 1.0 (please don't use anything with alcohol in it! :(( !) and it keeps my skin feeling amazing all year round. If you haven't tried this, you absolutely need to grab it on your next trip!
Will be using for many years
Chuck from MD
It feels great on my skin and has visibly made my skin softer. I have been using it for about a year now (have had to purchase it four time, I think?) and I think I will continue to use it for many years.
anonymous from Upper Michigan
Surprising product. Much nicer and more useful than I thought. Works well without being oily.
Nat53 from Colorado Springs
I'm always outside; mountain biking, hiking, camping, so I always have sunscreen or dirt on my face. I was washing it twice after a good day of play but it either still didn't feel clean or it felt dry afterwards so I'd slather it with moisturizer only to be repeated. Then I saw this cleanser and tried a trial size based on reviews and hoping for more moisture and my routine changed. I now have purchased a full size and refilled my trial bottle for out of town trips. I use this every time I wash my face and follow it with my usual CeraVe cleanser and my skin feels amazing. I also use much less of the CeraVe and it lathers much better. I love this stuff and will continue to use it.
Seriously be careful with this product from Texas
This product destroyed my skin. I used it at night as a first cleanse to get my makeup off. Wasn't anything special, I find that I prefer balms more than oils. But two days later, my skin was angry, itchy, and worse than it has ever been. Stopped using it immediately and thankfully saw improvement in the next few days
Removed mineral sunblock
Mara from Ohio
This is the best way to remove mineral sunblock! I love the travel size - it's olive oil-based, so it won't last super long, so definitely get a smaller size if you're not sure how fast you will go through it. Follow the directions exactly, and follow with a regular cleanser!
I can't say enough good things about this!
Jenn from Massachusetts
I have combo skin with a lot of sensitivity as well. I tried the make up eraser, make up wipes, micellar water and EVERYTHING gave me irritation around my eyes. This not only removed my make up (even magnetic liner) it also didn't irritate my skin, and left me feeling soft & clean even the next morning. The price is high but if you've had issues with any of the other products I've listed, this might be what you need!
love this to remove my make up
the greencurls from NJ
this is my go to when removing my make up. I have very sensitive and dry skin, this is perfect for me.
I use DHC and Shu. But since I earn points here, it's a win win :)
Jriley781 from MA
This stuff works. It makes taking off my makeup way easier. I used to was two times, use a make-up wipe and then tone. Now I use this and then cleanse my face. No wipes needed. Worth every penny.
Kellz from Jacksonville FL
One pumps is enough to get my face makeup free!
anonymous from Colorado
Amazing cleaning oil. This is the best at breaking down oil and sunblock. Love it! My new favorite!
Summer from New York
I love this cleansing oil. It's good for acne prone skin (make sure you're choosing the right type of oil for your skin type!!!!) and gets the job done. Like any oil cleanser it doesn't feel good in the eyes. What I do to avoid this is to not open my eyes until I'm completely done with my regular face wash. I haven't had oily eyes since.

I've been using this product for years and love it. It does a great job gently getting makeup off.
