Rated 4 out of 5 by jaimer Pretty good! Don't get it in your eyes....
It does work great while removing make-up, especially mascara. The only thing is that in order to remove your mascara, you obviously need to use the product on your eyes. Try to use a cotton pad. I didn't have any, so I used my fingers and it is possible that using a cotton pad would help with this. Overall it is a great product for removing makeup and not feeling like alcohol has dried out your skin.

I've been using this product for quite sometime now & I'M IN LOVE!!! (I am Asian) with combination/sensitive skin. I use this in the shower on a daily basis when I wear makeup (either full coverage to just simple eye-makeup) & it definitely works!! Removes everything, including waterproof makeup. NO NEED for cotton pads & makeup removers over the sink. All you need is this bottle in the shower & you're squeaky clean!

First, I have to admit that I looked for this because I got a sample of DHC cleansing oil in the mail. I didn't even know such a thing existed before. I am Caucasian, not Asian. I do not really have sensitive skin. My skin is combination and gets pretty oily in the t zone.
Second thing I have to admit is that I'm very lazy about washing my face well at night. It's mostly because it's so messy. In the morning I wash it in the shower so I don't care about the mess. So at night, many times I am lazy and just use a "makeup remover" wipe. These things barely remove makeup, let alone dirt.
So this Shiso cleansing oil allows to me wash my face without as much mess. Since you use it before any water, I'm only splashing water on my face to rinse, hence, less mess. Make sure your hands and face are completely dry. I'm sort of weird but I use my left hand for my face and then the clean right hand for my eyes. I don't like the idea of wiping the makeup from the rest of my face on to my eyes. lol Most days I wear a full coverage, long lasting foundation, cream or crayon type eyeshadow, eyeliner #top only#, blush, and lipstick. I rarely wear mascara. This oil takes all that off. I don't wash again with anything else after. I have a lighted magnifying mirror and have looked in it after. All makeup is gone. When I use wipes I visibly see makeup. I have used astringent on cotton after and do not see dirt or makeup on the cotton. My face feels clean and not too moist or dry. I would hate it if it felt slimy moist as I have oil during the night as it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CathyM excellent facial cleansing oil
I frequently use cleansing oils, and tried this one for the first time. I am very pleased with it, as it cleans very well, and does not leave an oily residue. Yet, it definitely does not dry out my skin.
