Use this FIRST. On DRY skin. Two pumps, massage all over including your eyes, then wipe off with a damp wash cloth. I've never needed to go back with a wash.

No. It's better to use this to remove all make up first. If you wet your face before using this product, it won't work well.

If you wear lots of water proof eye make up like gel liner, you might want to use eye make up remover.

Honestly I think using both at the same time is an over-kill. I own both products. If I'm flying out the door, then I would use the cleanser. If I have a little bit more time to give my skin some TLC, I'll use the cleansing oil. Generally, I use the cleansing oil in the morning and the cleanser at night when I shower. They both clean very well, although I feel that my skin feels tighter/more dry after the cleanser in the winter time.

Use this cleansing oil first. You may or may not need an extra cleanser after. I don't, but I only use this in the evening.

Hi Atheenuh,

Use the product prior to cleansing as a make up type of cleansing removing product!

This is better at removing makeup. Just remember to use on DRY skin. Do NOT wet first. I use a small amount of the wash in the mornings to clean off my face.

Forming cream is more drying than oil. If you prefer squeaky cleanness, you might feel cream is better. But Cleansing Oil works as good as cream without drying your skin too much.

YES - I use this in alternation with the SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser. I actually use less than a pump-ful of the product (the "How to Use" video suggests 2-3 pumps). Other reviewers who have given low ratings have noted that there is a filmy residue afterwards - yes, the film stuff DOES happen when you overpump.

When I first bought this product in Hong Kong, the SK-II saleslady at a counter told me to pat the oil onto the skin rather than spreading the oil and "gently massaging" the oil over the face as described in the "How to Use" video. She said to let it sit for about 30 seconds (I suppose to allow the cleansing oil to loosen up the dirt and grime in your pores) before using a bit of lukewarm water to gently massage your face in circular motion - this should produce a milky watery emulsion. Then let it sit for another 30 seconds before rinsing off.

Sounds very time-consuming, but it works! Also, since I've been using this for years now, I've also cut corners here and there when my skin isn't too dirty and I'm in a rush (AKA lazy) by adjusting the amount of oil that I use and shortening the time that I spend waiting. I'm sure after awhile of use, you'll probably find out what works best for you too!

I feel like the oil works better in removing make up. I use the cleansing oil in the evening and the foaming cleanser in the morning.

I don't feel I need to use anything afterwords, but I need to use eye make up remover if I am wearing water proof gel liner.

Agreed with djshin. If you're trying to remove makeup with this, then you can probably test it out and see if you need an additional cleanser afterward. I use this as a standalone cleanser (alternating between the Facial Treatment Cleanser) and it works just fine.

You may or may not need to. I think it's just your preference. I don't use an extra cleanser after, but I do continue with a toner and moisturize as usual.

Tough to say, since it is a cleansing oil, the thick mineral oil should help to capture and remove makeup and sunscreen easily. Just make sure to double-cleanse by using a face wash afterwards.

I wouldn't recommend using oils with your clarisonic. You just use your hands. After using the cleansing oil, you can use your clarisonic with a gel/cream/foam cleanser to continue cleansing.

It would be OK. Take a look at Boscia's Make Up Break Up Cleansing oil. It has cooling and anti-redness plant ingredients which make it best for sensitive skin. They are both high quality Japanese brands and on Sephora's website.
