There was a huge cleansing oil hype in the blog world a while ago, but for some reason this one wasn't really brought up. I think that is a real shame, because this is by far the best makeup remover/nighttime cleanser I have EVER used, and I'm not a MAC junkie. 

This cleansing oil is $26 a bottle, and lasts me two months. It also removes all of my eye makeup without any scrubbing, and I've never found a product that doesn't involve losing eyelashes to remove my eye makeup. 

I know that one of the biggest fears that people have when they hear the word "oil" is breakouts, and I have had the exact opposite problem with this product. I have fairly dry skin, but the worst blemishes you can imagine. One of the main reasons I don't post many photos of myself here is that I have terrible acne, both basic whiteheads/blackheads but also cystic acne. Since I started using this cleansing oil at night, my breakouts have gotten a lot smaller and my skin is far less dry. 

However, I don't typically use this product in the morning, because it is not exfoliating. I like to use Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish in the morning to wake me up and exfoliate before I do my makeup.  

All in all, one of the best cheap ways to remove your makeup and cleanse your skin at night, while adding a bit of moisture. I will definitely repurchase and recommend it 100%! 

This was my first foray into the world of M.A.C. cleansing products — I went in to get my Prep+Prime SPF 50 while complaining about how difficult it is for me to remove my eyeliner at night, and the man at the counter suggested it to me. 

Has anyone else tried M.A.C. cleansing products? Which ones? Do you like them?

I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! 


  1. I have heard some pretty good things about this product, I think I'm gonna have to try it :-)

  2. Do! It is so worth it — I didn't mention it in the review, but it has the lightest citrusy scent that is just perfect and delicate. I smile whenever I use it :)


Thank you! I love to read and respond to your comments.
