If you don't wear makeup, no. If you do wear makeup, follow with an exfoliant and a gentle foaming cleanser.

If you're still concerned about it though, I recommend the Boscia oil cleanser (or even coconut oil). I only use oil cleansers to remove makeup, though, because the oil cells stick to the dirt/makeup and skin oils on the surface of your face and then rinse off. I always follow it with scrub (to remove remaining debris and dead skin cells on the skin's surface), and then a gentle foaming soap or cleanser (to clean out the dirt in my now-accessible pores). And then serum/toning lotion and/or moisturizer.

answer 2
It's not bad for your skin. The grade of Mineral oil used in cosmetics (especially high-end ones like this) is highly refined and free of contaminants. It creates a protective, healing barrier over your skin, and (like petroleum jelly) can actually speed wound healing because it creates an occlusive barrier keeping things out of the skin; however, if your skin is dirty, it can also trap things in there (which is how it gets a bad rap), and it's not good to have an occlusive layer over your skin 24/7. In short, it's non-comedogenic and a perfectly reasonable part of good skincare, but you must follow its use with a good cleanser to make sure you're not trapping dirt and bacteria inside your pores.

I have oily/problematic skin - and this has been the best product for removing make up and cleansing my skin. I noticed it helped remove barriers from dried out skin (after cleansing with other cleansers) and old make up.

I actually have found that I break out less with this cleanser than with other cleansers (foam, cream). I think it might be because it doesn't irritate my skin at all. I haven't noticed clogged pores either.

answer 5
it depends what kind of skin you have. generally mineral oil is not good for facial skin. it is make from petroleum and if break outs are your problem then you should avoid it. if you have mature skin that is dry then sure use this. if you want a cleansind oil that wont clog pores try josie maran's. have not tried yet, but i love her products. have been battling acne for years and battling oil with oil is what works. good luck!

I use a BB cream which has SPF in it and this does a great job of removing it all. Better than any other make up remover I've used in the past.

Yes. It removes the Shiseido Sun Protection Cream and Lotion, as well as the compact foundations with SPF. It also removes every other water-resistant sunblock I've used.

1-2 pumps of oil into dry hands and massage into skin gently. Apply warm water to face massaging gently to produce a milky film. Then rinse thoroughly with warm water until clear or you may use a warm face cloth. Removes all sunscreen type products, long-wear makeup and makeup in general. I follow with a toner and moisturizer.

It does a great job! It'll smear as your rub it off and kind of get on your face. But when you add a little water - the cleanser turns milky. I rub that consistency all over and then it all rinses clean.

Oil cleansing does not cause breakouts. The science of oil cleansing: Oil molecules are sticky; they stick to bacteria (whose cell membranes are lipophilic), dirt, and other oil cells. When you apply oil to your skin and massage it in, it sticks to the gunk you want off of your skin. When you then massage some water into it, it emulsifies (the oil cells become suspended in water) and becomes easy to wipe and rinse your dirt and skin oils away. If you wear makeup and are acne prone though, you need to get out everything trapped below the surface and should follow with an exfoliant and a cream cleanser.

Do not use this at all. It is basically baby oil.
Use Carol's Daughter Body Jelly instead on dry face, then rinse with warm water and a wet washcloth (change your washcloth every day!). Follow with your usual cleanser if you need to.

Oil breaks up oil in the cleansing process, so even though your skin is oily/ breakout prone, this would be an excellent cleanser to completely dissolve makeup as well as dirt, oil and debris (as well as waterproof sunscreen) to thoroughly cleanse the skin without stripping the skin of hydration.

Oil cleansers are great to remove waterproof makeup, but I often find they get in my eyes and make my vision blurry for a while. Check out Koh Gen Do cleansing spa water; it removes any makeup in a few gentle swipes with NO residue or irritation. It's expensive though, so I save it for just removing my eye makeup. You can get a free sample bottle right now with a Sephora order using the code KGDFAN.

Yes, but you'll end up tugging on your lashes tryng to get it all off. A better method is to use an eye makeup remover first, e.g Lancôme Bi-Facil, with cotton pads, then use this oil for the rest of your face.

Yes, however, be sure to gently work or massage the product in and around the eye area paying special attention to the lashes. A Q-tip may be needed to clean any particles of mascara or residue.

I usually have my contacts out when i wash my face (right when I wake up or before I go to bed) so I haven't had a problem. It's really gentle so I would say it's okay, but then I don't recommend getting the oil in your eyes either.
