So versatile!
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective
This stuff has so many uses its crazy.
Mixing medium: Ive mixed this with my foundation to sheer it out.
Face cleanser: Dont be scared of the name. Yes its oil however I have oily skin and this hasnt affected my skin negatively. Apply it on a dry face and rub it in. Then rinse it off. It doesnt leave an oily residue at all. Once water hits it it turns white and rinses away.
Brushes: Ive also you used it to clean brushes that ive used with creamy products. Lip brushes are a sinch to clean now. Apply a tiny bit to a tissue and gently wipe the brush in the oil and wash as usual. No rewashing needed.
Stains: This is also really awesome for stained brushes. We all have them. Stained from foundation or how about those white goat hair brushes stained from blush. Repeat the steps above and the stains are gone. It even works on the duo fibre brushes.

I was really hesitant to try this product because I have combination/oily skin. Fortunately this worked really well. My skin feels so good and clean since I have been using this and as a result my skin has really cleared up and I think that in combination with my skincare routine my skin is starting to become normal. My skin has never felt better.

Best makeup remover, END OF THE STORY!!!
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective, remove all makeup
I am an oily, acne probe skin type and this cleanser is the best stuff I had tried to remove all my makeup at once. And when I said at ONCE i mean it!!! this oil removes even the heaviest makeup in just one step.....love it!!! Most of the makeup removers out in the market don't remove all the make up, and to make everything worse, they have harsh ingredients that can cause irritation or break outs. This formula containing jojoba oil is perfect for all skin types...including oily trouble skin, because is very gentle and contains jojoba oil which its a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and helps to regulate sebum production(what cause acne and other skin infections) .
From all the makeup removers by mac I feel this is the best one, and I personally recommend it. Thumbs up for M.A.C.!!

Great Product!
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective, all skin types
This product is everything the description says. Girls, please don't really on water and cleanser to take off all your makeup at night. Use a makeup remover prior to washing your face and your skin will look and feel so much healthier. Must have. It even works wonders on your skin. I notice my skin looks alot healthier and glow-ier in a sense. Must have!

Holy Grail !
Tags +Gentle, Effective
I love this!! Best oil cleanser I have ever used. It works so well for my skin type, no breakouts and takes off all of my waterproof mascara without leaving any residue. The bottle also lasts a long time. I would recommend this for anyone who has sensitive breakout prone skin. Love it. :)

Will NEVER go back!
This is, by far, the best thing I have ever done for my face! I have very oily, acne prone skin, so I was tentative at trying a facial oil. I am so glad I did!! I have been using it for about a year now, and not only do I have less breakouts than when I did when I used "acne face washes", but my skin actually looks and feels better from using this! I hope if they ever discontinue this, it will be after I am long dead, because I really do not know what I would do without it. I'm not saying my breakouts have cleared up completely, but they are limited to maybe 1 or 2 pimples a month or more. My face feels and looks so clean after I use this. This is a great product and I will use it for as long as I can!

WOW
Tags +Gentle, Creamy, Refreshing, Effective, makeup remover/cleanser
I have been using the origins version of oil make-up remover/cleanser for the last couple years. I finally decided to try this and WOW it's wonderful - my skin feels better than ever and this oil seems much lighter/thinner than the origins one (in my opinion that makes it even better). A little goes a long long way, 1 pump for normal makeup and 2 for heavy. There is nothing better than good skin, if you haven't tried this product especially if you have drier skin DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leaves a bit oily residue
I usually hate oil cleanser but decided to try this one out since the review is good. However, it does leave a bit of that oil feeling after cleansing just like other oil cleansers even though the cleansing power is very reliable.It cleans off eye make up just as well as face makeup. I guess it'd be a good travel item but I wouldn't use it long term.

I love it!!!
Tags +Gentle, Effective, makeup remover
This makeup remover is the only thing that gets MAC liquidlast eyeliner off of my eyes in only a few seconds. I also bought MAC Gently Off, and that too works but I prefer this over it...although they are both fantastic products. I bought the travel size for when I am on the road or sleeping over at a mates flat. It is a great product and totally removes all my makeup!

Adore it!
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective
I ADORE the cleanse off oil. It removes all makeup in one application. Waterproof mascara is a little difficult to remove. Previously, I used the gently off eye and lip makeup remover (which is great for waterproof mascara) but around my eyes & lips the formula left my skin extremely dry. On a full face makeup day, I wash my face with volcanic ash cleanser. On a slight work makeup day, I cleanse with the green gel cleanser. I have normal to combination dry skin (my nose is the only oily zone). My skin is left clean, refreshed & makeup free. Afterwards I use the comfort cream moisturizer. I often receive compliments on my skin so this works for me!

Favorite One-Step Make-up Remover
Tags +Gentle, Refreshing, Effective, removing all over face makeup, gentle enough for eye
Ever since I started using this Cleanse off oil, removing makeup doesn't feel like a chore. I actually enjoy using this cleanser. It works on both light and heavy makeup, including stubborn mascara and eye liners. My eyes don't burn or get irritated and I don't get blurry vision...which is why i love this product even more. AFter using this oil, my skin just feels soft and smooth....best of all, it feels Make-up free! I also have to mention that this feels lightweight when massaging it onto your skin and it rinses off easily. This has become my fav 'to go' makeup remover. Go M.A.C!

best remover
Tags +Effective, removes all waterproof makeup
I love this cleanser. It works wonders to remove all your makeup. I use one pump for my face makeup and one pump for my eye makeup. I wear the most waterproof eye make up known to man (Mac Liquid Last Eyeliner). And this thing takes it all off easily. It also does not try out my skin which I appreciate.
My only complaint is how they raised the price of this. I remember when I bought a bottle last year it cost a couple of bucks less.

Life Changing Product!
Tags +Gentle, Effective, skin health, make-up removal
As an "always trying something new" consumer I was more than willing to give Cleanse Off Oil a chance. It has been almost two years and I haven't tried anything new since! My skin is healthy and clear- completely new! I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for something to brighten and make a difference in their skin.

Awesome Stuff!
Tags +Gentle, Effective, removing makeup
I was a little nervous using this product because I have oily skin, but all fears were washed away the second I rinsed the it off. It took off all of my makeup without leaving any sort of residue. My face felt clean and moisturized. I am absolutely hooked and so is my sister.

This product is amazing for taking off makeup at the end of the day! A couple pumps breaks down all face and eye makeup and leaves skin feeling soft and clean. Does not cause oily skin to get more oily, and does not cause breakouts

I liked this product alot. It left my skin feeling very soft and smooth. Didn't leave a sticky filmy feeling like alot of other makeup removers do. Emulsifies even waterproof mascara and liner.

My HG of makeup removers!
Tags +Gentle, Foaming, Effective, dry skin, acne-prone skin
I absolutely adore this makeup remover. I have very sensitive, combination/dry, acne-prone skin, and I wear foundation (Studio Sculpt) often, so I need a really solid makeup remover.
Cleanse off oil massages beautifully into your skin, then lathers when you wet your face. Your skin is left totally clear of makeup but still soft and hydrated. I always follow up with my go-to cleanser (SK-II).
This is a definite must-have! Get it, dolls :)

AMAZING!
Tags +Gentle, Creamy, Effective, removing long wearing/ waterproof/ regular makeup
I bought this for the first time yesterday. It was my first MAC purchase. This is my Holy Grail makeup remover. It is so amazing. I use one pump and rub it all of my face. I massage it into my lashes, eyebrows, eyelids and every other part of my face. I then massage a little bit of water all over my face, and the oil turns white and milky. I follow with my cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. It is amazing. I would totally recommend it!
