Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosewater Removes face makeup
This is a great cleansing oil for removing foundation face makeup. I massage into dry skin and rinse off and all the makeup is gone. It is not harsh and does not strip skin. I follow up with a cleanser to clean my skin since this does not do that because it is gentle and purely a makeup remover. When I follow up with my Clarisonic there is NO makeup on the brush after rinsing this product. When using other makeup removers, I find quite a bit of makeup on my Clarisonic brush afterwards. So I know it is working to remove makeup! My face feels good after using it and not dried out or stripped.
My only qualm is that I feel it is a bit pricey for a makeup remover, and the pump is not the best quality. You have to be careful when pumping so the product does not squirt everywhere. Also, this product is marketed as being a camomile product, but the camomile ingredient is at the very end of the list, and the main ingredient, soybean oil, is a very cheap oil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarieNYC Beats a $50 product
I was at Barney's and a saleswoman almost convinced me to buy a camomile based cleansing oil. My skin is so dry because I work outside and even at my age, was starting to look dull. I thought, doesn't The Body Shop have a new camomile line? I was smart and didn't buy it and went on to purchase this product. For DRY SKIN, you can NOT BEAT THE PRICE! Works amazingly to remove makeup & sunscreen without stripping your skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coconutty Lovely Makeup Remover!
I bought this during a 50% sale, otherwise I might not have got it because of the price. I have never used a cleansing oil before, but I have to say I am very glad I bought this one. IT has a lovely scent, is very gentle on my skin, and leaves my face feeling very soft. I use this as my first step at night. A couple of pumps massaged into my hands and then I apply to my face/eye makeup in circular motions (or use my rotating facial brush).
For tougher eye makeup, I close my eyes and apply on my lashes and take a hot, damp towel and let it sit for about 30 seconds then wipe it off. And voila! Eye makeup gone.
This oil works great when you use a hot towel to massage it onto your skin as well. Leaves it feeling clean, smooth, and soft! I probably could use it by itself but I like to be sure I leave no residue, so I always follow with another gentle gel/cream type cleanser.
I highly recommend this cleansing oil. After I use up this bottle I will be trying the Shiso oil!

Rated 5 out of 5 by thischick Fantastic makeup remover
I bought this on a whim during the sale and I bought it because I have been trying to find a replacement for the Ponds makeup remover that I have but it is impossible to find anywhere in store but in NYC. Being a loyal fan of all Body Shop products, I tried this and I like it a lot. I have combination/oily skin that is more on the combination side due to my current pregnancy and find this to be a fantastic makeup remover. It even removes my waterproof mascara and Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (which takes forever to remove) in one cleansing. Even for someone like me with mainly oily skin, it left my skin soft, smooth and ready for the Seaweed cleanser. Being a beauty/skincare junkie I have tried several, more expensive cleansing oils since it is the 'new thing' and find this one to be far superior over the rest.
