great cleansing oil...i’ve been using this cleansing oil for about a year now and have never broken out from it. i have tried other cleansing oils here and there but every single one has broken me out. it does a great job at removing sunscreen and face makeup. don’t use this on the eyes, though—it will sting. i use micellar water for that and the oil for the face and neck. if you’re afraid typically of cleansing oils due to fear of breaking out, try this one....Irritates my eyes and break out...Irritated my eyes, its hard to get it off and after using it I have break-outs. I miss the Sephora version :(

If you are looking for a similar product comparison, I have used Biossance squalene cleansing oil and Clinique take the day off cleansing oil, and both are less expensive with a larger amount of product and more effective with better formulas in my opinion....It takes off a full face off makeup easily, however it smells like straight vegetable oil.

This is my new go-to cleansing oil. It removes makeup (including waterproof mascara), without too much rubbing, and it doesn’t burn my eyes like other cleansing oils I’ve tried. ...I usually hate cleansing oils bc they always sting my eyes and are just overall messier than cleansing balms because it feels like you have to use so much to take off all makeup. finally found an oil I actually like- two pumps are enough for the whole face, eyes, and neck. have been using for a month and not even 1/6 of the way through the bottle, doesn't sting eyes at all, no breakouts, and doesn't feel stripping after double cleansing. couldn't recommend more
