Mac // Cleanse Off Oil

If I had to name one product I am in constant battle with, it would be the Mac Cleanse Off Oil.  I bought the small travel sized bottle of this about a year ago and I still haven't used up the entire ounce. On one hand, it is mineral-oil free and one of the most gentle cleansers I've used to this day. On the other hand, it does not remove my waterproof mascara. I purchased it for the very purpose of removing my mascara after Ingrid mentioned it in one of her videos. I don't know if I'm using some heavy duty mascara or if my application of the cleanser is incorrect but I just cannot get this product to do what it is supposed to do. Also, if you get it anywhere near your eyes, everything will look foggy for sometime. How is anyone supposed to wash off their mascara if they can't use the oil near their eyes? My Caudalíe Cleansing Water does a better job of removing my makeup than this oil. Overall, once I am done with this small bottle of the Mac Cleanse Off Oil, I will not be buying it again. Did you have a better experience with this product?


  1. How can a product not remove waterproof mascara? That's a big no really. Thanks for the review.

  2. i have never tried this product but I hear clairns do a really great eye make up remover

  3. I've been contemplating this product after getting a MAC gift card, thanks for the review! Don't think I'll bother if it's not all that :) Love the photo's!

  4. I've never thought of trying this out because I'm in love with the Shu Uemura cleansing oil but now I want to pay a visit to my local MAC counter. x

  5. I was debating weather I should get this but now I am kind of glad I didn't! I hate this 'foggy' feeling that many makeup removers have.. Great post and love the photos darling! :))

  6. That's a shame about the mascara. Have you tried using different brands? If so then maybe it's time to try out some new products? Who could give up an excuse to go shopping? ;)

  7. I've heard Ingrid rave about it too, but I've never had my own experience to compare it with. That baby bottle is adorable!
