Love this product!

This is absolutely the best face cleansing product l I've ever used. Not only does it thoroughly clean my skin, but also removes cosmetics including all traces of mascara leaving my very mature skin looking and feeling wonderful. This oil has become a part of my daily skin cleansing routine. I highly recommend it especially for women with aging, dry skin.

Wonderful cleanser!

Oil-based cleansing is very effective for my skin. This has to be my favorite oil cleanser. It is silky smooth and gentle on my acne-probe skin. It quickly removes makeup and rinses clean, leaving soft, clean, glowing skin. I love that it gets slightly milky when used with water. It is also July st as effective on dry skin. When used this way, I wipe it off with a warm washcloth.

I've used the Resist Hydrating cleanser since it was first released, and I love that. But I was sent a sample of this one and couldn't believe how effective it was, so I purchased it. This new one is so much lighter and it feels like it's doing nothing but it gets off so much more makeup, so incredibly gently! I wear heavy makeup too. I always follow my cleanser with Paula's makeup remover to get the last traces off before toning... with this new cleanser, there's so little left to remove. Because of the light formulation, this product feels barely there on skin and leaves skin feeling almost untouched - this is a great option for people with sensitive skin like me. Skin is left feeling very soft.

I'm very happy with this cleanser. I have combination skin (normal/oily) and this does not make my skin feel oily at all. It cleans nicely and leaves my skin so soft. It does a great job getting off my make up, sometime not so great with the mascara, but that's ok.

Absolutely love this cleanser. I prefer to apply it to my face with no water and massage it in for a minute or so. It washes of easily and leaves my skin feeling so plump and clean.

Love this, removes every last trace of makeup

I've tried many makeup removing methods, including many different oils from high end to pharmacy brands.... so impressed with this Paula's Choice product. Everything comes off .... no further products required and no harsh scrubbing. Im going to stock up as I can see this becoming 'sold out' once word gets out.

Clinique appears to have discontinued its emulsion oil cleanser so I bought this one, since the rest of my skin care is Paula's Choice. I use four to five pumps to get enough to cover my face and it works well enough but doesn't have the softness and milky emulsion I liked so much in the Clinique product. I double cleanse and can't get out of the habit of using an oil emulsion cleanser first! It seemed to take most makeup off but I needed to go on to the next step to feel my face is really clean.

I 'm a long time PC user of many products. I LOVE this product EXCEPT for the fact it does sting my eyes..not horribly but it does sting. I'm going to try and use it with out directly rubbing it on my eye lids and see if that helps but I have a feeling that might be tricky to do. Otherwise, I do love it!

Great!

I'm a big fan of PC products and decided to try this oil to see if I preferred it over my regular Skin Recovery Cleanser. I've been using it both morning and night but am unsure whether I'm meant to use this in the morning when I don't have make up on??? But, whenever I use this, it has a lovely feel to it and leaves your skin feeling soft! Just try not to get it in your eyes because like all oils, it's a real nuisance!
