I was a bit curious with this that's why I decided to "purchase" it and I though it would go hand in hand with the 2 items I got ( pevonia peeling cream and Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask).

Please note that I used this after using Pevonia Enzymo-Spherides Peeling Cream. After rinsing I poured some oil on my palm ( which turned milky white as my hands were a bit wet) then I gently applied it on my face. What I did differently from the instruction was not rinse it after the application so yes, I slept with shu's oil on my face! Even though the formulation is mild, it stung when it got in my eyes :(

On the days that followed, I decided to do what the instruction says which was to rinse my face with water. I did just that and noticed that it really made my skin a bit softer.

I think it made my face a bit softer. But Im not sure if Im ready to shell out that much as Im not really a make up person so I guess I wont be able to use it as much as I want to.

Shu Uemura has the best cleansing oils available. The consistency of this High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil is somewhere inbetween the green variant (more oily) and the pink variant (watery). This deeply cleanses the skin and removes make-up even waterproof ones. There's no need to use a toner when using this because no traces of dirt is left. This variant leaves a slight oil residue which I feel is ok for night time use. The only thing I don't like about this variant is the smell. It smells like a regular massage oil (not the aromatherapy ones). I would definitely buy this if the other variants are not available, but my favorite still remains to be the pink one (fresh pore clarifying gentle oil).

At first I was hesitant to use this cleansing oil because it might add up on the oiliness of my skin. After I use it, I now love this and will definitely buy a full size. It easily removes my make up without leaving a trace and my skin so not so greasy.

I've been eyeing Shu Uemura's cleansing oils for quite a while now, and using these samples was a pleasant experience overall. The oil smells nice, and it does remove makeup. However, if you use heavy foundations, it might be best to still wash your face afterward to make sure all traces have been removed. I feel like this would suit those who use lighter makeup better, just a warning to those who prefer putting on heavier makeup.

I was really excited when this product arrived. This is my first time using a cleansing oil to clean my face. One pack can be used for 2 nights! You don't need a lot because it lathers well on your face. Since i don't wear make up on a daily basis, it's so perfect for me. What is admirable about Shu Uemura's cleansing oil is that it's gentle but cleans well, great smell and makes your skin soft. This will be a permanent part of my night time regiment.

This has oilier feel than the Fresh variant, works just as well in removing makeup. I saw the difference after rinsing. With Fresh, all the oil is removed after rinsing. This variant leaves a little oil, just the right, healthy amount, like I just applied moisturizer. I noticed that my skin has indeed maintained a balanced state, no oily areas or dry patches and it didn't trigger pimples.

This is the first time i've tried one of Shu Uemura's cleansing oils and i really liked this one. I liked the smell and texture and it does a good job of cleaning my face thoroughly & removes all traces of makeup. It also leaves my skin soft after using it.

It’s my first time to try shu uemura’s cleansing oil. It’s very mild and gentle on the skin. This takes off my make-up very well without making my skin dry, tight, or oily. It thoroughly cleans and removes even stubborn, waterproof eye makeup. Even lip and cheek stains disappear instantly. I’m in love with this cleansing oil. I will definitely buy a full size.

I have used cleansing oil before but the consistency of shu uemura is very nice light and not icky at all. It is very effective too, specially on hard to remove waterproof eye liners and mascara. After wiping it off, i don't only find my face make up free but softer too. Although, I just dont like how it smells.

I gave this sample to my wife. She loves water proof make ups but removing it was always a hard time for her. She was so happy when I gave this to her. She said that removing her make up especially the mascara and eyeliner was so easy. It didn't leave any greasy feeling right after use. She wants me to buy the full size for her.

As far as I know this one is the first among the cleansing oil of shu eumura. It is also good for people who has flaky or dry skin, it doesn't only cleanse but also hydrates. Compare to all the variants, I like this one the best. I like the mild scent and the texture when applying it on your face, the clean feeling and softness. Thanks Sample Room!

After using this great product for 6 days, my skin really improved. Pores get smaller, skin is brighter and it is so lovely to touch. The smell is very subtle buy the power of this product is grand. Shu Uemura never fail to provide effective products that will really help us have a glowing skin.

I like Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil because I only need one swipe to remove my mascara. Unlike other makeup removers, I need several swipes to completely remove all traces of my eye makeup. WHich makes me concerned about getting wrinkles and sometimes they sting too.
Not with this one! Really effective and mild on the skin.

It's always a privilege to experience the benefits of shu uemura products. Their skincare and makeup are exceptional! This is the second shu cleansing oil that I've tried, firstnis the whitefficient clear brightening variant. The high performance balancing cleansing oil works so efficiently, cutting a step in my routine. I'm not too keen on the strong scent although lemony, I like the whitefficient more, it's relaxing and very pleasant. I'd also prefer a less runny consistency.

I have read a lot of amazing reviews about this product online so when i saw this on Sample Room, I knew I had to get it. Hands down the best make up remover I have ever tried. It melts make up on my skin in an instant. I still use another foaming cleanser after this though - only because my face is really oily. One thing I don't like about this product is the smell. And the only thing that's getting in my way of buying this is the price but all in all, this product is really, really good. Highly recommended! :)

When I opened it, I didn't know that the scent was coming from it. It smells fine but maybe it's not just my type. As for the cleansing property, I have BB cream on and a finishing powder on my face and it did removed my make-up. After washing my face, I felt like my face was too oily. But after a few minutes, the oiliness felt better like my face was moisturized. Having second thoughts on buying it as I prefer their clarifying cleansing oil (pink) one better.

It was actually my first time to use a cleansing oil and it was a good experience. Its a great cleansing product because when I toned my skin after, the cotton hardly turned dirty. I would have to make it a staple if only I can afford it.
