          I love cleansing oil and was excited Paula added this to her line of products. The oil takes my makeup off so well and my skin doesn't feel dry afterwards.

          cleans well, but doesn't remove eye makeup

          I would not call this the Holy Grail. It is a nice cleanser that does a good job of cleaning my face without leaving it overly dry. BUT, it does not remove all eye makeup. In fact, it leaves quite a lot of eye makeup. I am not disappointed since it is not worse than anything else, but, it is not really better either.

            I wear heavy sunscreen, and wiping it off my face at the end of the day is no picnic. This stuff though!!!! You rub it in just like a lotion, and VOILA even heavy duty makeup/sunscreen just disappears???? LIKE MAGIC???? And then you rinse and your face is fresh and clean with none of the tugging, rubbing, and multiple-washing that used to make cleansing such a drag.

            This product is AMAZING at removing my stage makeup! I never have to scrub or get rough with my skin to remove all the layers of makeup. Because my skin is acne prone, I follow up with the earth sourced cleanser to ensure there's no residue on my skin. Since I've incorporated this into my regimen, my skin tone has improved dramatically. Who knew I just needed to remove my makeup better?

              I used this maybe three times and am unable to use. For some reason it irritates my skin making it burn and red. Also it did not remove all of makeup. I've been using many of Paulas Choice products for 20 years and have never experienced this. I will go back to skin recovery cleanser.

                I really wanted to love this cleanser. The first couple of days it left my skin feeling very soft. Most likely the combinations of oils. By day three my skin was breaking out with white blemishes. I loved the results I get from using BHA 9, but I feel this oil base cleanser had but me back to square one. Nothing that time and BHA 9 can't fix, but just disappointing. I do feel people with dry non-acne prone skin would probably benefit.

                Best Uses

                  I used this three times. The first time my eyes were red and irritated though it did seem to remove my makeup well for the rest of my face. I used this two more times trying to avoid the eye area but had irritation in the eye area both times. It looks like I'm not the only person that has a sensitivity around the area with this product. I'm very disappointed that this did not work for me. Love most of Paula's products though.
