Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this product, but can only use it at home Kiehl's, please come up with different packaging for your 2.9 ounce travel size. This product cannot travel! It doesn't matter if traveling in carry-on luggage or by car, it still leaks. Never put it in checked luggage!I have even tried putting plastic wrap all around the bottle and under the cap. Whatever I have tried, it still leaks. The only time it did not leak was when traveling by car and keeping the bottle upright in the cup holder. I have used other oil products that do not leak as they were packaged appropriately for the consistency of the product. Please make a change so I can use this product both at home and while away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I tried this product I could not understand at first how this cleansing oil worked, seemed strange and very different from any other product. I wasn't sure if my skin was even getting cleaned after all the make us. I've decided to give this product a chance and continued using it every evening. This is now my one and only cleanser I use. My skin is oily yet very sensitive, especially in the winter , you never want to over dry your skin. This cleansing oil is the best product I have tried in many years. I wish I could purchase refill as I feel bad throwing out the bottle every time . Very different yet the best cleanser for your skin ever existed. Please make bigger bottle or refill packages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a must have! So I have never been more impressed with a product, I got it as a tester when I came in to replenish my hydro-plumping serum (try that as well, it’s amazing). The tester for one came in the cutest bottle and you get loads in it , 40ml to be precise but I’m so impressed by the size of the tester as well as it didn’t come in one of those sashays and actually had enough in it for me to really try it out. I will start off by saying my day to day job is working on a makeup counter so I have to wear a full face of make up Each day. So I’m always on the market for a new cleanser to get it all off with after a busy shift. They lovely man in the shop told me I literally needed less than a pea size amount, to apply to the face without putting water on first and then wash it off. To which I was very sceptical about, but god was I mistaken. It completely took off all my makeup even my waterproof eye makeup, I was completely shocked when I saw that it actually worked! Plus my skin felt absolutely amazing after. And the smell! Honestly I can’t recommend this product enough, a little really does go along way so it is completely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Irreplaceable I use this twice daily, and simply can't go without it. It cleanses oil and makeup very well, without any harshness. The aroma is excellent and feels great on my skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be careful when purchasing online!!! I was quite a fan when trying this project in stores while on vacation! I just recently decided to order it online, and while the quality is just as I remember it, a word of warning to those that decide to purchase this product online. About half of the product had leaked in transit! The outside of the box was soaked when it reached me. Very upsetting considering these products aren’t all that cheap. I reached out to Kiehls and have not received an answer. Pretty disappointing :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this cleansing oil I have been wanting to purchase a cleansing oil for a long time and shopped a ton of brands and price points, I finally decided to purchase Kiehl's, and I'm so glad I did. First thing is it smells so good, I use it at night and the lavender scent is great before bed. The texture and smell combined, feels like a little night time luxury. The oil is not thick and glides over the face well. My skin is also super soft after. I also think its worth the price, as it seems like it will last long time since I use so little of the product each time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HELP!!!!! I used this for the first time last night. Going away from my Olay routine. Dont want to use it, because of animal cruelty. I love Origins, so I invested in the entire regimen. I received this sample in birchbox, so I figured I would try it. I used it as a cleanser, and no moisturer. I woke up th morning and my husband said are Are you okay, you look exhausted (9 hours) of sleep. Did I do something wrong or do I have to do it more than once. I'm 58 and so unhappy with my skin. Bags, and marionette lines,, and large pores. (that's new). Not sure what to do???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're thinking about it, just get it! I was super hesitant to try a cleansing oil since I have combination skin, but I decided to give this one a try. I LOVE IT. It's so much more effective at removing makeup than any other makeup remover I have ever used. One-step, highly recommend. If you're thinking about testing out a facial oil, try this one!

Is the bottle for this glass or plastic?

Asked by: Jazz

How well does this remove eye makeup?

Asked by: asdfghjkll
It removes eye makeup very well. I wear lots of high-quality, thick mascara and I'm able to wipe it off both eyes with a cotton ball and a couple of pumps of this cleansing oil.

Asked by: Bellaboo

Do I need to wash my face with another cleanser afterwards?

Asked by: Chremotic
No. With a little water, this moves off the skin pretty easily. I follow it with toner and then moisturizer.

Is it okay to clean your face with a toner after washing with this product?

I usually wipe my face with a toner after cleansing, but should you tone after washing with this product? It feels almost like I'm wiping off the moisture that the cleanser leaves behind on my face. Is that counterproductive to what this product is trying to accomplish?
