It's a great product! It can easily remove makeup (especially eye makeup). My skin feels so clean and smooth after every use.

Just a brief background: I have very very VERY sensitive acne prone skin. Acne prone in the sense that I breakout when I use a product out of the ones I'm particularly used to. Whenever I try a new product and it doesn't work for me, I end of getting pimples the next day (all the time).

I've tried 3 kinds of Shu Uemura cleansing oils. The pink, green and yellow one. And I'm loyal to this other brand, DHC cleansing oil from Japan, which I love. I use cleansing oils as a facial wash even though I'm not wearing makeup. Now, upon trying the Whitefficient Clear cleansing oil, I super loved it immediately. I didn't itch nor got pimples the next day. I also loved the smell, which wasn't too over powering. Prior to using this, I had a dark spot in my chin (due to a cystic pimple) which lightened. I'm really impressed and would definitely buy. People may think its very very expensive, but we should invest in our skin right?

I'm not a heavy make-up user so I tried this product mainly for cleansing and not for removing make-up. Application was kinda messy because the contents had to be taken from a sachet. I guess if it was from its originally container with a pump, it would be easier for the user. I took 2-3 minutes in massaging my face in the application process. I noticed that the fragrance was comparable to that of Johnson's baby oil so the scent didn't bother me that much. I also noticed that during the massaging process, some of my whiteheads came off, maybe this is due to the softening properties of the formula. When I washed my face, the formula turned into a milky like liquid. When I lightly patted my skin to dry using a towel, I noticed that my skin got soft, smooth, and supple. :)

PS: When using this product, be careful not to have it in your eyes. During my first usage, I got shocked when some of the cleansing oil entered my eyes. When I washed my face and the formula turned milky, I got scared because my vision became blurry I thought I was gonna be blind! Haha! But compared to other soap-based cleansers, this one is more tolerable and can easily be washed away from the eyes. The soap-based ones leave an irritating and stinging feeling when it accidentally enters my eyes.

Overall, I loved this product! I noticed that my face brightened in less than a week! Thumbs up! :)

I have been using oil cleansers for 2 years now just to remove waterproof makeup on my eyes and still use a facial wash after because I feel that my face will get oily if I don’t. This is the first time I have tried an oil cleanser just like I would use a regular facial wash.
First impression on consistency, a little runny compared to the current oil cleanser I use but it was not an issue for me. For the smell, I was overwhelmed at first because of the perfume like smell but I adapted to it immediately and liked it afterwards. The first time I used it I had light make up on but with plenty of mascara, it removed my waterproof mascara easily and my skin did not feel oily or sticky afterwards, I actually went on a 2 hour run after removing my makeup and surprisingly even though my face was red and a little sweaty it didn’t feel sticky. I used it again for the next four days on a bare faced skin (w/o any makeup) just to see how it would feel and this is without using any facial wash or cleanser after, my skin felt soft, smooth and clean. My boyfriend even commented that, my face looked clearer and brighter. Oh and a little goes a long way, I only use half of the sample for every wash and it is enough to cleanse my face. Overall, if I had the money to spare, I’d definitely buy myself a full size of this.

Texture
Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil is more runny than the High Performance balancing oil (Yellow version). Every time I use it, I still get surprised at how runny it is but I really don't mind since it's easier to spread it all over my face.

Smell
Others may not like scented skincare but I really like this cleansing oil's light and floral scent.

Effectiveness
I only wear light makeup, i.e. concealer, translucent powder, liquid eyeliner, and blush. Using this cleansing oil, removing makeup is made easier and more enjoyable (with the sorcery that is the milky-emulsifying effect). As for the brightening effect, I cannot really tell if this is what's making my face brighter than usual since I'm using this with the Tsuya skin essence (also from Shu), but I did notice a certain glow (my sister did too!). However, the downside is that my face oils up faster than it normally does. But I can live with that most especially because this cleansing oil makes my facial skin supple, radiant, and healthy- looking.

It has a gentle effect yet i feel its thorough cleansing. As you lather to the face, you can see that all dirt that comes from make up are removed. And to add to that, it has brightening effect that makes my skin clearer and radiant. Definitely i will go buy this one.

For a first time oil cleanser user, this is a very welcoming change. Being a foam cleanser for ever since, make-ups - especially eye shadows and eyeliners - are hard to remove and being tired from work I am almost always lazy to wash them off. So I was pretty impressed the very first time I used this, no more need for make-up remover, baby oil or other alternative. My skin feels great and moisturized too, unlike the usual cleansers that leaves the face dry.

A steep price comes with the full size but I'll gladly spent on it and consider it as a great investment.

Shu Uemura Whitefficient Clear Brightening Gentle Cleansing Oil plus lukewarm water is magic.

I've been wanting to try this product for a very long time and i'm really glad I got to avail of a sample. The consistency is surpisingly light compared to other cleansing oils I've tried, but it's really effective in removing makeup. I only wear light makeup on a daily basis (eyebrows, concealer and face powder) so it didn't take a long time to work the product into my skin. The scent is also nothing short of wonderful, which is a nice change from my previous cleansing oil which smelled like... Well, oil. I also love how supple my skin feels after cleansing. I'm definitely grabbing a bottle at Shu (along with another Shu favorite, the Hard 9 formula eyebrow pencil) after the holidays!

Personally, I'm not a fan of oil based products. The smell, the texture, and the greasy feeling after you use it. But Shu Uemura ousted me in my comfort zone. This product is totally awesome! It leaves a smooth effect on my face after washing it with water. Good thing I availed this sample right before Christmas. Now I know what present I want to receive from Mom.

This is the 4th brand of cleansing oil that I've used and I must say that Shu Uemura does live up to all the hype. It sits at the top of my list because it simply is so effective. The consistency is not as thick as the others but works better. I love, love the smell compared to one that smells like cooking oil. One drawback for me though is the restrictive price. I don't know if I'm willing to shell out 5k for a single product. Though it does lessen my cleansing routine as I don't have to use a separate cleansing cream, facial wash and toner anymore, all I need to do is use this 2-3 times. Overall, I love the whole experience and I look forward to using this every night.

I'm actually not fond of Oil cleansers because of the oily texture it leaves my skin. But this product made me change my mind. It has unique cleansing properties that sets itself apart from other make-up removers. The Cleansing oil when mixed with water on your face will leave a milky quality. You will actually see and feel that your make-up is being removed. No need to use a separate facial cleanser and toner. The result is a fresh, supple, moisturized and brightened face. Surprisingly, no oily residue!

Shu Uemura kept its promise of naturally glowing face with this product. I've tried it for 3 days and early on, I can feel the glow.Maybe much more with continued use.

I've been using the pink cleansing oil for a very long time, but it's very drying if you are going to use it everyday. I really want to try this cleansing oil since it has been reformulated, and now I have finally tried this! Hooray! The texture is a lil bit heavier compared to the pink one but still, it's a very-light textured cleansing oil. My skin felt so good after using this, it was very soft and a lil bit brighter I think?hehe.. I like this better than the pink variant! Thank you sample room, I hope you will sample the sublime ultim8 cleansiing oil sooon!! :)

I was excited that Sample Room offered this product because I've been using Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oil since 2007 and have sworn to its amazingness (if there's such a word). I have to say that first of all, the smell is the best thing. I think it's the best smelling one from the ones I've tried using (the standard one and the anti-oxidant green color). What I like about this is that not only is it a great makeup remover but it also really hydrates your skin. I generally have an oily face but when I washed it off my skin felt nice and soft and didn't become oily too fast. Really nice to use before bed!

One thing about this product is that I wish they offered it in more sizes and not just 2.

I love that it feels smooth and silky when massaged all over my face. It is a little greasy, which is expected of oil based products, but it rinses off easily with water without any trace of oiliness. It also smells divine! It does a great job of removing makeup effortlessly and you need not double cleanse after using. My face immediately feels soft and supple after each use.

Found the product very effective. Downside for me is that it's quite runny, making it a bit difficult to apply. Other than that though, very happy. It's easy to rinse off, cleans my face effectively and leaves my skin really soft and smooth even until the morning after!

At first i thought the cleansing oil was meant to be used with a cotton pad but after going to their site, i found out that you had to wet it also for an emulsifying effect. I didn't really see any instant effect but my skin did feel soft to the touch and moisturized as well. As for buying the full size, i don't think it's worth to shell out 5k when you can find good alternatives with cheaper prices.

I like this cleansing oil because it's not too heavy on my skin and does not leave an oily residue. It's easy to wash off and the scent is very light. My skin feels a lot smoother after use.
