This product is really great, removes even tough mascara. Makes my skin feel really soft and clean after. Usually after i would have to go over my eyes to remove mascara with wipes. Not with this though. Lasts ages too. Only 2 pumps needed each time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Iamhobbit Why do I need to "double" cleanse??
Where has all this rubbish about double cleansing come from? Seems to be to be another way to make money! At 66, I have always cleansed once,
either with LE or Elemis balm, cleanser or oil, with
good skin why should I waste money doing it twice????????

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tillypops A must have!
I have been using this cleansing oil for a month now and simply wouldn't be without it. I like to use it for a second cleanse as it also doubles as a massage oil. My skin could look a little dry before, but not any more! It's such a pleasure to use and the massage effect encourages circulation. My skin can be a little sensitive at times but this oil is gentle and calming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandrab58 Best gentle oil cleanser
Bought this to try and wasn't disappointed. I find this more gentle and effective as my first cleanse even removing my stubborn mascara first time. It smells wonderful just like a spa treatment at home. Rinse, use my cleansing balm and my skin feels so soft before I apply my bliss capsule and night cream. I tend to use the micellar water in morning to remove all toxins released overnight. Can't fault elemis treatments at all. Keep up the good work

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leake83 Lovely but....
Decided to give the oil a try after using the balm and loving it. The plus with the oil is that it is a pump bottle so i found i wasn't using too much, with the balm i found i used a lot more than i needed too because i loved it so much. When my parcel arrived i couldn't wait to use it! I applied to a clean face as i don't tend to use make up unless i am at work and followed with an elemis toner and my skin felt lovely and clean with no tightness and it smells heavenly. Now, the reason I have only given 4 stars, I have found when wearing make up one application isn't enough to remove all eye make up. Now i don't mind a double cleanse but as this has to be applied to dry skin i was having to dry my face whilst still smeared in make up and go in for a second time and i found after giving my eyes a good clean that my vision was blurred for a while from the product. Also since using i have had a breakout which i haven't had in many yrs! I am going to carry on using for a while longer as it may be due to starting a different product and when used in a morning on a clean face it is a joy as the scent is lovely

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tweez Great quick cleanser
I use this in the morning and a balm at night. I prefer to use the Elemis balm at night to remove makeup etc as a cloth is used and I feel it cleanses better. This is a quicker cleanser for me and perfect for mornings as you don't need to use a cloth. I don't know if it's my dry skin, but there is no milky lather produced when I add water, but I still like it and feel it doesn't strip my skin. I have no adverse affects on my skin and it's cost effective for me too as I think it will last months. A good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lupino Very good if it does not irritate
Removes all my makeup instantly
However i find whenever i use it i get bleeding pores on my nose
I have alternated with other products and everytime i come back to this ,one or two pores bleed and i get big spots also
The first time i persevered for an entire month and the pores and spot problem did not cease all that time
Stop using and the problem stops
It smells beautiful but i will not be buying anymore

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lauralou12 Too good to take off!
Like other reviewers, I didn't think that elemis could top their cleansing balm but this oil is so lovely to use. It's like a mini spa treatment every time you cleanse and the aroma is wonderful and relaxing. I remove it with warm water and a cloth but I'm often tempted to leave it on for a deep cleanse, in fact, I might try it in the sauna. I prefer this to the "leave on" elemis facial oil, my skin is normal -ish but prone to dryness if I don't moisturise. Thoroughly recommended.
