Summer staple

This is a staple during the summer. I am a loyal user of Shisedio sunscreens. They work and doesn't make me breakout. I use Urban Defense daily, and turn to the higher SPF Shiseido sunscreens (blue bottles/packaging) during the summer or for outdoor activities. I use the Ultimate Cleansing Oil to make sure I get all the sunscreen off. It leaves my face feeling clean without drying me out or leaving that tight feeling. I have combination/oily, acne-prone, blemish-prone skin and this doesn't break me out or irritate my skin. I would highly recommend to others.

Gentle and effective (

Adding an oil cleansing step to my skin care routine made a huge difference, and was the last piece of solving my skin care challenges. I'm over 50 (with oily skin and rosacea) and my skin has never looked better. My rosacea has chilled out, my pores appear smaller, flaky skin is gone. I'd made a lot of progress with appropriate foaming cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and BHA, but adding the cleansing oil ensures my skin is really clean and not over-dried.I've tried other cleansing oils that were trying to be more gentle and natural, and they make me break out. This formulation is mostly mineral oil, and also includes fragrance. Not ingredients I was looking for, but the performance is fantastic.At night, when I'm removing makeup, I use a little more than one pump in my palm, and put the cleanser on my face with my palms, then follow with gentle pats and make sure get the eye makeup loose, and reach the edges of the foundation. A few splashes of warm water remove most of the oil, and then I finish with a gentle foaming cleanser. In the morning, with no make-up to remove, I use a bit less than a full pump. One bottle lasts me about 6 months. « less

Amazingly Effective

This is a great oil cleanser. It removes makeup and sunscreen like nothing else I've used and doesn't dry out your skin. I don't use this as a twice-daily cleanser, as I find it to be too expensive and my skin is very prone to blackheads, so I need deeper cleansing. But I will use it at night to remove makeup and sunscreen, then follow with my usual cleanser.As with other oil cleansers, I pump just 2 pumps of this into DRY hands and apply to a DRY face. I massage it in for a minute, then mix a little warm water on my hands and continue to work the product into my skin. Then, it just takes a few splashes of warm water on my face to remove the remaining cleanser.The thing I find most amazing is that this stuff removes even the most stubborn, stuck-on, waterproof sunscreen. It removes waterproof mascara, as well as the smudge-proof eyeshadow primer I use and love. Does so effectively and gently. Love it!! « less

Sticking to non-oil face wash

Product did a good job removing makeup and left my skin smooth. Didn't notice anything else beneficial about it. Probably better for those with very dry skin. It caused breakouts for me, was also a hassle to use, and NOT good for CONTACT LENS. You can't wash and go in the shower since it must be used on a dry face and dry hands. I found myself wanting to wash my face before using this so not to spread around oil makeup and oils into my skin, and I ended up needing to wash my face after using this product to make sure all the oil was off and out of my hairline to prevent breakouts. It's hard to tell if the oil is all off or not. Also, if you wear contacts and get this oil in it you're screwed and left with cloudy vision as the oil sticks to the lens.

Shiseido Cleansing Oil

this is an oil cleanser that looks clear and is lightly fragrant. i use a couple of squirts on to my palms and apply directly to my face and neck. i massage into my face, using massage strokes. it is silky against the skin, while it removes makeup from the skin and pores. this cleansing oil i perfect to remove any heavy duty make up, and to give yourself a facial massage during your cleansing routine. i love it! i rinse with warm water, in which the product emulsifies becoming white, and slides off my face easily. it takes and makeup and residue while leaving my skin soft, clean, and hydrated. it does not irritate my sensitive skin and leaves my dry skin soft and dewy. i recommend this oil cleanser for those that have dry sensitive skin, and whom also practice do-it-yourself facials. « less
