  • "I love this oil! I use it as my makeup remover every night and I don't see myself using another product ever again. It breaks down all my makeup but is still gentle enough that it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. It is on the expensive side but mine lasts months before I run out. Highly recommend" in 4 reviews

I do a double cleansing method which is oil cleanse first and then a water based cleanser. I usually use Boscia‘s oil, but wanted to branch out and try something new. It’s the same price but I get 0.9 more ounces which I like! The smell is herbal and it’s really nice. The consistency is pretty watery but it takes off makeup so well. My skin feels clean and soft. It leaves no residue which I like. I’ll definitely repurchase this when I use it up!

Definitely not a bad cleanser, even for people with oily skin. Cleaned my makeup off without drying out my skin. However, I noticed breakouts when paired with nighttime serums like Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate so for the price, I may stick to buying nice serums and cheap cleansers like Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser that work well with all my products.

Life. Midnight recovery line is amazing & this addition didn't disappoint! I'm a huge fan of anything in the "oil family" and this product removed my face makeup while leaving my skin very moisturized! I almost didn't even need to add a moisturizer! I love the pump dispersion mechanism especially.

This is the first cleansing oil i have ever tried! I tried it because i am a huge fan of the Midnight Recovery line at Kiehl’s, and i was so intrigued that it is a makeup remover. I have oily skin so i was a little skeptic at first but i tried it and fell in love! You rub it on your dry face and break down the makeup, then add warm water and it starts to turn into a milky substance. When dry, the skin feel sooooo smooth & hydrated! And overtime my skin looked more radiant. I love that this also gets rid of waterproof eye makeup & it smells soooo good !!!!

I got the small bottle of this in a Kiehls kit I got from Sephora, and now I need to buy the larger size. I only use this at night to remove my makeup, and it just melts right off. My skin always feels great when I rinse it off, and it doesn't leave an oily residue.

One of the best cleansing oils I have used. It takes off all makeup, including mascara, with just a few pumps of the oil. It doesn’t take multiple tries to remove makeup with this oil. Once you rub it on your face it just melts off easily.

This oil cleanser is lovely. It is gentle and smells really nice. I love the vintage apothecary style bottle. A little goes a long way so one bottle lasts a long time. I purchased mine from Sephora and would definitely buy again.

This is my holy grail cleanser. It takes off all my makeup at the end of the day and doesn’t strip my skin. It’s a oil so it doesn’t really foam or leather but it doesn’t bother me. It would be great for dry or mature skin

This is a great cleansing oil for nighttime. The smell is so relaxing and removes all my my makeup including eye makeup without being overly harsh. Ran out and repurchased and will continue to purchase!

Has anyone tried this cleansing oil? I have only ever used Burts Bees and I am curious about how this one compares to it. How is it different and are they all about the same? ( cost-wise, quality etc.) Thanks : )

I am acne prone but my skin has been very behaved recently. I saw this and have been wanting to try removing makeup with an oil so I can be more gentle to my face. Is this safe to take off eye makeup? Or just facial makeup not near the eye area? Also does this leave your face feeling oily after using?
