    It works!

    It just works. It's easy to use. I massage it on to dry skin and remove it with a warm wet washcloth. It removes all of my makeup. It doesn't disrupt or trigger breakouts on my sensitive acne prone skin. The scent is not strong at all, and it's pleasant. The price is good. I liked the environmentally friendly packaging and delivery; minimal plastic (except the pumping mechanism) and no bubble wraps. I'll probably purchase it again once I use it up.

    So in love

    I think I found my holy grail face cleanser. I love using balm cleansers but I've been wanting to try oil cleansers that wash off clean. This cleanser cleans so well - all the makeup off, even my mascara and eyeliner, but keeps my face fresh and moist. I love the faint herbal fragrance, too! Sometimes oil based cleansers are hard to spread and you kind of have to wrestle and tug your skin but not with this one! So smooth and soft (not sure if this is the right word) and easy to spread and roll around for thoroughly massaging your face. My favorite item in the bathroom currently :)

    Love that it's cruelty free, for a good cause and all natural!

    Botanical Cleansing Oil - Love this stuff!!

    I am a double cleanse gal & have tried more cleansing oil than I can count. I had my favorite cleansing oil until I tried this one. I love the feel & smell of this oil. Using it as a first cleanse I apply all over my face & let sit for a minute. Then I use a eco/green wash that lathers over the top as a second cleanser & remove eye make up. This leaves my skin moisturized after cleansing & free of both make up & impurities. Could be used alone, I just prefer a double cleanse!! My new fave cleansing oil.

    Underwhelming

    Jumped on the sale for this cleansing oil after seeing a glowing review from a YouTuber I follow. While I agree with her assessment that the slip is lovely and it doesn't leave a film at all after washing it off, it did not turn as mikly as I was expecting after adding water, nor did it remove my makeup that well as there was makeup residue on my drying towel and I don't wear heavy makeup. Glad I got it on sale rather than full price and doubtful that I'd repurchase.

    We're as disappointed as you are that this didn't live up to your expectations! When it emulsifies, it is on the subtle side. And, to be most effective at removing makeup, it helps to start with dry hands and face and massage into the skin. If this doesn't work out for you, we are happy to offer a return or exchange. Just let us know how we can help! Thanks so much, Allison

    LOVE

    I love the simple and clean ingredients. I love the texture of the oils in this blend; it really allows for a nice facial massage as it melts the makeup and SPF off the skin. It washes off cleanly but doesn't strip the skin. Has a very nice botanical scent I would think even the most sensitive to scents would love.
