Rated 5 out of 5 by from My fav cleanser I have oily skin but tends to get dry. This oil gives me the moisture I need. I had previously used this and then stopped using it and tried other products and that was a mistake. This is the best product by far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for “oil cleansing” This was my first ever Kiehls purchase which brought me back into the store for more. I’ve bought 4 bottles now and use this oil every other night to cleanse my face. Once warmed up into the skin, it helps loosen whiteheads and pimples so that I can extract them after my face is dry! I love this product and it rinses off so nicely (I’ve had other oil cleansers that require a wet rag). Also the smell is amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of my dual-cleanse routine! This oil based cleanser is amazing for after you've initially removed your makeup with micellar water. I use his before a foaming or gel cleanser and it removes the dirt and makeup from my day. The texture is light and it has a nice scent. It doesn't lather like crazy, but it gets the job done. Would recommend as part of a dual cleansing routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! Even though I moisturize morning and night (w/Kiehl’s products of course), my face felt extra dry this winter. I tried this cleansing oil, using at night as directed and within a few days noticed a marked difference. My skin looks and feels supple, yet clean. It lathers hardly at all, but I’m not complaining. The results are great. Will be a go-to, especially in winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! Can we have a larger bottle, please? I loooooove this oil!!! It’s a real game changer for me. I use it after the calendula cleanser, and yesterday I forgot to finish my routine after the midnight cleanser and my face looked amazing all day long!!! I went to Kiehls after work and the sales associate did not believe that I only used two products for the whole day. My skin was still looking amazing!!!! My best moments are when I apply it at night after my shower, wash it off, and do my midnight eye treatment and midnight concentrate. The next morning I can wash my face with water, tone and finish my morning routine in the car if I’m in a rush and I know I’ll be fine because I used my go-to oil. Thank you for making such an amazing product.can we get a bigger bottle, please?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I had this as a gift last year on January 14th and I have just ordered a new one. I found that one squirt would cleanse my whole face and get all my mascara off it is the best cleansing oil I have ever used.
Date published: 2020-02-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed thoughts The consistency of the product is good to break down makeup, the oil penetrates deeply to remove the makeup, but do make sure to double cleanse after. However for people with acne or sensitive skin, I wouldn’t recommend scented oils in your skincare, this is because it irritates your skin even further. It does the job but in the long run scented oils will be bad for your skin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I started to try out kiehls a couple of weeks ago and ever since then I haven't been able to stop buying products! I bought this product along with the midnight concentrate and the spot treatment. I use this product every night and my skin has been looking so much better. You also don't need a toner with this product which I really like

Can I apply this at night without rinsing? Feels similar to Midnight Recovery Concentrate. :)

Feels similar to Midnight Recovery Concentrate. I sometimes just apply at night and rinse when I wake up in the morning.

Can you please fix the travel size bottle so it doesn't leak?

I love this cleaning oil but I need a travel size bottle that doesn't leak. I have a flip top which may be an older version as the online chat person said there is a pushtop that clicks now. The recent comments still indicate that the bottle makes a mess for traveling. When I check luggage, it's ok as I just use my bigger bottle. But carry on is a problem. Thanks for considering some product improvement.

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.
