Review: Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil

I bought this Bobbi Brown cleansing oil from the MAC warehouse sale.  This is the first time I've used cleansing oil to remove my makeup and I find that it works really well.  I've read some reviews that compared the MAC cleansing oil with the Bobbi Brown cleansing oil.  Some say that their effectiveness are about the same.  But I bought the Bobbi Brown over the MAC because the BB one had more product.  Anyways, I've used it like 5x so far and it leaves my face feeling really soft.  How do you use it? Well I take 2-3 pumps on my palm, lightly rub it all over my face for a good 20 seconds or so then rinse it off with water.  Once the oil comes into contact with water, it changes into a milky white solution - an interesting transformation.
The packaging box states this product wipes off non-waterproof makeup.  I use waterproof mascara and I find it may take a few more seconds to wipe off non-waterproof mascara but it works.  I haven't experienced any irritating problems.

Product: Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil
Rating: 4.5 / 5

- Effectively cleans off makeup easily
- Leaves skin soft
- Doesn't leave skin with greasy feeling or even during the application
- Doesn't break me out

- Not time-efficient when it comes to rubbing off waterproof makeup


  1. i really love this. i want to buy it at the warehouse sale but i just have no time to go. *sgh

  2. @MissJayce: You go to the MAC warehouse sale too? I bought it because people were raving about cleanse off oils and I thought I'd give it a try. I saw a bottle of NARS makeup cleansing oil at the Shiseido warehouse sale, but I decided to put it back down since I haven't finished my Bobbi Brown one. I don't see myself going to my cleanse off oil often enough to make another purchase of it. Have you tried other brand's cleanse off oils?
