It's a cleanser and make up remover. You don't need to use another cleanser in addition to using this product. It works as both. If you don't wear any or very little make up then it's a great cleanser too.

I find this not only removes makeup but, also is a great overall wash. I only use it at the end of the day without any other type of cleanser. Works great for me. But, if you plan to use a clarisonic, I think you should get rid of your makeup first. Then maybe use a little more of it with the clarisonic. After all, the point is to clean your pores deeply with a clarisonic, not to push dirt and bacteria from makeup around your face. Hope that helped.

Just to be sure everyone knows how to use an oil cleanser correctly...1)the cleansing oil is applied to the face dry 2)gently rub the product over your eyes and face 3) wet your hands and work that into the areas that you have applied the oil...the product will then turn a milky white 4) your face is then ready to rinse. The only reason you would get an oily residue is if the product did not go thru the milky phase. I had that same problem until I saw the proper technique on YouTube.hope that helps

You definitely need to rinse off with another cleanser. You might find it too oily afterwards. It's a cleansing oil that removes makeup or any grime (like if you've been on the plane for too long, or if you were exposed to a lot of dust for a long period of time).

It can definitely be used alone as a cleanser as it rinses off surprisingly well. However, since I have such an oily complexion, I prefer to follow up with a more astringent cleanser after this one.

It is a make up remover and cleanser all in one but if you still feel that you need to wash your face with a cleanser with your clairsonic, then that would probably be okay but i wouldn't use this product WITH the clairsonic together. Better to use this product first and use to take off all makeup using fingertips.

Could oil cleansers still strip the skin?
Hi, I know this is a crazy question, but is it possible that oil cleansers that foam up once water is added, still strip the skin? I have acne and oily skin and am trying a new route, of not using cleansers for oily/acne skin because I think they irritated my skin and are too harsh...I'm just wondering if this is a good way to get my makeup off and not strip my skin? thank you!

I have combination skin (oily T-zone and dry cheeks) and I have been using this stuff for a month now and I can honestly say that it leaves my face feeling balanced-- not dry or oily. It rinses out clean, leaving your face soft, clean and fresh. Go to your local store and ask for a sample just to try it out. That's what I did at first.. but, then I was back in two days to buy it... and no buyers remorse yet!

As a licensed esthetician and a devotee of this product AND someone who has oily skin and breakouts, I highly recommend this product. It will not strip your skin. It sounds to me, you're using too much of either a benzoyl peroxide product or too much salicylic or glycolic acid. I would recommend using this and then a toner for oily skin. Make sure to use a moisturizer after for oily skin and this should alleviate any redness you're experiencing. I only have the small amount of info you wrote to go by, so I hope this helped somewhat. Oh, and if you experience any redness, it's not really because you've "stripped" your skin -- it's just that you've caused irritation and dryness. Any type of toner you use should be one that will balance the Ph of your skin. And, most, high-end ones will do that.

I've read that stripping oils by washing oily skin just continues the problem too. I've tried the Japanese face oils which don't strip the good moisture away, they clean really well and leave your skin soft. This one is a ight gel texture, you only need a tiny bit on your face and you'll probably like it. It cleans off all the makeup, even waterproof mascara and leaves the skin w/o a residue. I use a damp cotton pad to gently get the city gunk/makeup off, & 1 more damp pad to cleanse any remainder, then whatever ever night cream. try a sample from your Sephora store - I think you'll be happy with this.

This is most effective when you do not mix with water. Just use two pumps, rub gently on your skin, then rinse well. The oil is water soluble so it should slick off after a while. You will find that your skin is soft but a little too oily, so use your regular cleanser. It does not strip the skin of any moisture! I have oily acne prone skin msyelf, and this product is effective.

I have been hooked on oil based make up removers since my twenties when my skin was very oily and broken out. I can not live without them. I use them on dry skin first to break up foundation and all eye make up. Once I have done an effective rubbing to break up the bond of cosmetics, I add a small amount of water to continue the cleansing effect, then rinse with warm water until everything is removed. I then bring out my Clarisonic brush and favorite cleanser of the month to really get a deep clean. I do not get break outs with any of the oil based removers and I am sure the second cleansing with the brush are a big part of that. I have always called the oil based products a make up remover, not cleanser, and my face loves me for it. The thought of cleansing my face without removing make up first, even with the Clarisonic, gives me the chills. It would feel like I would be pushing all that make up around with cleanser and brush, but not truly clearing my pores of all that gunk. Some claim their brush heads are actually stained with the color of foundation. The thought of that, does not make me feel perfectly cleansed. I do not want to find make up residue on my toner pad after all that cleansing. These oils are a must for me and they do not cause break outs when used as directed. I get glowing skin from the few extra steps but it is worth it at my age. I want clear, youthful skin way into my 60's.

Question
Contact Lens safe?
I used this twice with the same result: while my face felt fine, this oil seeps into my eyes (yes, I keep them closed while cleansing) and although it doesn't sting or anything, it left an oily cloud/residue on my contacts that's so bad, it totally impeeds my vision and I had to immediately remove my contacts for the night. It wasn't a HUGE deal, since I was going to bed anyway, but I wanted to know if anyone else experienced this and if this product is safe for contacts. I am gentle when I cleanse my eye area and I've never had any problems with any other cleansers before. This was my first oil cleanser so I thought maybe I was doing something wrong. Any advise would be appreciated! Thanks!

This happened to me as well. I've just started using this before putting on contacts, and after taking them out at night. It was a little strange at first, but it wasn't a deal breaker for me. I'd suggest if it really bothers you, just try to avoid your eye area and rinse thoroughly.

I remove my contacts before using this product. I also use another very gentle soapless cleanser after I use the Boscia Cleansing Oil and wash my hands with regular soap before re-inserting my contacts. My guess is that any "oil" product that gets into your eyes is going to coat your contacts. I use a "ceam" style eye shadow and if that gets in my eye, I have to remove my contact and clean it, also.

Even putting my glasses back on after drying my face (and gently dabbing my eyes dry) didn't help! I used a very tiny amount to begin with... Something is just not right here...

That has happened to me before too but with other products. I don't think its unsafe for contacts but I would def take your contacts out before cleansing your face just so you don't get that residue on them or accidently lose them in your eye etc. Just my opinion hope it helps:)

I AGREE!!! I totally had my eyes closed too and this minty oil runs into your eyes. I found it to blur my vision as well and I do not use contact lenses. I hated it and returned it.

I had this problem the first time I used this with contacts in, but the next time I just made sure to rinse very well before opening my eyes and it was fine.

It has never damaged my contacts.

I have the same problem. I only use this without contacts and I use it sparingly. I wash it off with a washcloth and warm water instead of just using it dry.

Question
How well does this remove longwear foundation/concealer?
I'm wondering how well this removes longwear foundation/concealer? I was looking into the Origins cleasing oil and the sales lady said it wouldn't remove long wear or waterproof makeup? I'm going to buy this if this one is capable of doing so. Thanks!

I agree with the sales lady. I use a makeup wipe to take my makeup off as a first step and then follow with the oil and wash it off with warm water. Even then I can sometimes still find a small coat of makeup on a cotton pad when I rinse.

It removes everything. I wear waterproof eyeliner and it does a great job removing it.

Yes, this will absolutely remove all waterproof makeup, including waterproof mascara. My face tends to get really damp, so all my eye makeup is waterproof, including concealer, primer, cream eyeshadow and mascara. I've never used a product that removes waterproof makeup so completely. It takes only a few seconds to completely dissolve makeup and doesn't require you to scrub at your eyes or face to get the job done. I'm so impressed with this product and can't say enough good things about it!

I wear Clarins Double 'Fix Mascara, which can only be removed with Shu Uemura or MAC cleansing oil, but Boscia Cleansing Oil removed it perfectly with just 1 to 2 pumps. No residue, and so refreshing! I totally recommend it.

Yes, it removes ALL makeup including waterproof & eye makeup. Massage on DRY skin for 30 to 60 seconds, then rinse with water. It cleanses your skin too!
