Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great cleanser....terrible packaging I know I echo some fellow users of this product when I say that I love the cleanser! It does exactly as it says: removes my make up, makes my skin feel great, smells wonderful, and has a nice texture. HOWEVER-the packaging is simply terrible, hence the 3 star review. I have purchased it several times now (both the small and large size) and have had it spill when travelling twice now. (Both times were light travels and packed securely). I guess I should learn not to travel with it...but then what's the point? I could also decant it into a different container, but I shouldn't have to for a product that costs as much as this does! Until packaging is changed I don't think I will be repurchasing-hate to see my money spilled all over my suitcase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Favorite cleanser but BEWARE OF TRAVEL SIZE & customer service Can you imagine opening your luggage to find your wedding guest outfit covered in your oil cleanser? Yup. I've used this cleanser for several years and I love it. I can honestly say it cleans my face without stripping my skin of its moisture. However, I purchased the travel size in store and have had the most terrible experience. A product that is meant for travel LEAKS EVERYWHERE. I have lost at least 50% of the product to leakage and even when I put it in it's own plastic, sealed bag, it gets all over everything. Exactly what you rely on a travel size NOT to do. More frustrating and disappointing is that I contacted Kiehl's via their chat and was first told "I can help" and then was told that since I purchased it in store I'd have to contact the store because the store and online are separate entities. First, that should NEVER be the customer's problem. The customer sees a brand, they don't distinguish between online and in store. Second, I've moved states away and no longer live anywhere near the store or any Kiehl's store so I guess I'm just out of luck? I love the product and I've been a loyal customer for years, but there are plenty of good competitors and products out there so I'll find another brand that understands and prioritizes customer service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Travel size leaks I bought this travel size to take with me on work trips. Terrible idea. This leaked all over my suitcase. I lost at least half the product in there. I splurge on Kiehl's products so this was a major disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best make-up remover I got a sample of this product at Kiehl's shop and immediately fell in love with it! I have very sensitive skin with tendency of getting very dry, thighten and flaky if I use wrong products. It never happens with this cleanser. My skin feels hydrated and ready for 'midnight recovery'

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Its super hydrating if you have dry skin. Its an awesome make up remover as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Travel Size I love this product ... but recently had to go home overseas and bought the travel size I was very disappointed when I got to Germany all my cleanser was spilled out of the bag leaving everything oily Is there any suggestions on how to travel with this size without spilling ?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great product BUT travel size SPILLS I love this product and use the regular size one at home. I bought the travel size one for travels. The cap / bottle design is weird so that it spills through. Because this is oil based, it gets all over my other stuff in my toieltry bag. If you want to use it for travels, I suggest you buy your own spill-proof 311 bottle. DONT USE THE KIEHL bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly Good So I've never used a cleansing oil before. I never really thought a cleansing oil would clean as good as a facial foam. I also have super oily skin so I thought using a cleansing oil would be a bad idea. I was wrong! I was pleasantly surprised after the first time I used this. It literally washed off all my makeup off and my face felt great! My regular facial wash wouldn't remove all my make up off, regardless of how thick the lather of it was. I'm so happy after I wash my face with this and still am so amused at how clean my face is! It really is non-comedogenic..doesn't clog pores at all! This cleansing oil is simple and does the job beautifully. This is an absolute must have for me.

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.
