I received a 4 ounce sample of Paula’s Choice Cleansing Oil which I consistently used for four months. My sample bottle did not include a pump, so I simply poured a small amount into my hand, spread on both palms and massaged into my face. I found it to be a pleasant routine. I occasionally wet my face first, which worked but did not give me the same comforting experience. The product rinsed off thoroughly with tepid or warm water, leaving my 60-year-old skin soft, not tight or dry. I did not perceive any residue that would interfere with serums or moisturizers.
The formula includes coconut oil, but no fragrance was perceptible, which pleased me.
As a note, I do not routinely wear makeup, so I have no knowledge of its effectiveness in removing foundation. It is not an effective mascara remover based on my few experiences with that. I do think it did a good job removing the moisturizer with sunscreen that I routinely wear.
I did not experience any eye irritation, acne, or rashes while using this product.
Overall, it delivered a simple, pleasurable cleansing experience.
