The Best I’ve Tried So Far - I was also surprised that it's an oil cleanser and thought it would not be good for my combination skin. But I was mistaken and I'm so glad I gave it a try. Skin never felt better, honestly. At first I used it incorrectly trying to wash off oil with water, but then I tried to wipe it gently with damp warm facial cloth - feels great, both skin looks good and hydrated and you look radiant and happy.
I think I'm extremely sensitive to artificial fragrances. If I smell some fragrance in a product it makes me a bit nauseous. So opting for a natural product with no artificial fragrances made a huge difference for me.
Some may say this product is pricey, however it is very economical - a little bit is enough to clean face and neck. Also it depends on what brands you compare it to. Some overpriced luxury brands spend a lot more money on marketing and packaging design than on the actual ingredients inside the bottle. This is something to think about. I can afford luxury brands but I choose not to buy them as I was not getting from them what I paid for anyway - effective, gentle, safe cleanser, not overhyped brand.

Amazing I recieved a sample of this product and fell in love with it. It feels like such a treat to use. I brought the bottle and although it is a bit more then I would normally pay for a cleanser, it is worth it. Makes make up removal quick and easy, and leaves skin feeling clean and soft.

Not what I expected!The thought of cleansing my face with oil initially scared me - I was convinced it would just mean pimples and blemishes. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the cleansing oil made my skin feel really clean and refreshed - and smelling great too.

I also love the oil cleanser, never used one before and am loving the vanishing act my make up does, without much rubbing at all.

I have been so impressed with this oil cleanser and I definitely will use it again in the future.

I have used this oil for over month and can confidently say my skin is GLOWING. This facial cleansing oil leaves my skin feeling soft and flawless. After removing the dirt and nasties i use this oil as a leave-on moisturiser and to hydrate my skin. The oil also forms a protective layer between me and the day ahead. I have sensitive skin prone to blemishes and have noticed a significant improvement in the condition of my skin and now have visibly less break-outs. The oil smells beautiful and feels hydrating. Planet Eve Facial cleansing oil contains soybean, vitamin rich and hydrating Rosehip, nourishing Argan and enriching Tamanu Oils, nurturing and anti-inflammatory Jasmine and Patchouli. Australian Made and Owned, Planet Eve is Australian Certified Organic and displays the Cruelty Free Bunny we all love and admire. I highly recommend you try, buy and love Planet Eve Facial Cleansing Oil is VEGAN, NATURAL,ORGANIC, ETHICAL TRADE and most of all NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS.… this cosmetic is an "ETHICAL GEM!"
I just love a good cleansing oil for my night cleanse. I love Shu Uemera’s cleansing oils and recently I stumbled across a lovely Aussie cleansing oil with anti-bacterial Tamanu Oil. It’s a certified organic cleansing oil by Planet Eve Organics. The heavenly formulation of Soybean Oil, Jojoba and Jasmine gives a really thorough but gentle cleanse, lifts all my make-up up and away and makes a quick exit with grease factor of zero. Planet Eve products are Australian Certified Organic, packaged in recycled materials and are accredited by Choose Cruelty Free.
A real mover and shaker I have become increasingly interested in organic products so I decided to give this one from Planet Eve a go. I loved the way the oil felt on my skin. It was really smooth, and i found that a little went a long way. Less than a five cent piece covered my entire face and a bit of massaging started to shift my make-up away. I was a bit worried that because it's an oil, there would be a greasy film left on my face, but fortunately I can say that my skin felt incredibly moisturised with no sign of grease!

I use this cleanser at night.. do it,( you can thank me later) and find that it’s the bomb.com for removing makeup etc. It’s so lovely and gentle to use, very calming on my skin and doesn’t leave it feeling dry or stripped of moisture at all, this is one product I know I will be using forever!
This cleanser does a great job at removing dirt and makeup and leaving my face nourished with no drying effects what so ever. I am used to using just plain Organic Jojoba oil as my makeup remover but this cleanser packs in a punch with other amazing oils like rosehip, tamanu and argan to specifically promote healthy and glowing skin and makes for an even deeper cleanse than I wouldn’t normally get from just using the Jojoba on it’s own. I know a lot of people are scared to cleanse their face with oils but once you do you will not want to go back! The results are phenomenal.

Amazing oil I am a huge fan of cleansing my face with oils. I know a lot of people do their own mixes based on castor oil but I am a bit lazy and prefer ready-made products. So Planet Eve Organics Cleanser is perfect for me.
At first I was a bit hesitant as I had really bad experiences with Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil which broke me out really badly. But this one is not based on mineral oil and shouldn't do any harm to your skin. It's a mixture of rosehip, jojoba, tamanu and argan oils, all adding great benefits to your skin. It's not only nourishing but also anti-bacterial (tamanu oil) and rich in vitamin E.
I use it every night to remove my makeup (not including eyes). A pump is enough to clean the entire face so it will last for a while. After massaging it all over my face I just use warm micro-fibre cloth to wash it out and it works a treat. Yep, I mean ordinary cloth you would use to clean your windows or table top :) After cleansing, my face feels very soft and supple. Make up is gone and I don't strip my face off the oils it needs. Also because I rinse it off with a warm cloth, it slightly opens my pores to allow deep cleansing. As a result I've noticed that all the products I use after cleansing my face are better absorbed and simply work better.
All the ingredients are organic and natural which is another bonus of this product. My skin reacts really well to natural skincare and I feel better knowing that I don't put too many nasties on my face.
Overall I think it's a great product that changed my evening skincare routine.

I'm addicted! It's gonna be a keeper. Such a beautiful product!

I’d never used a facial cleansing oil before this one by Planet Eve Organics, but now I am hooked on them. This one by Planet Eve Organics is truly scrumptious - it does a brilliant job of removing all makeup and build up from the day, but leaves skin feeling totally soft and nourished. And it’s this part that I am loving - my skin doesn’t feel stripped after cleansing, just clean, hydrated and balanced. As a result, my skin looks and feels much plumper, as the natural oils are left in tact and keep the skin hydrated and glowing. The Planet Eve oil is formulated with soybean, rosehip, argan oil and tamanu oils, and anti-inflammatory jasmine and patchouli, so there’s a host of hard-working, delicious ingredients in there. I will admit that it did feel a little odd at first to apply the oil straight to the face without any water, but now I love the little ritual at the end of the day where I take the time to really massage the oil around my face and let the yummy ingredients soak in, before soaking a muslin cloth with hot weather and wiping the oil off. This cleanser is especially perfect for my skin type (acne prone but dehydrated), as it is both anti-bacterial to fight break outs and full of nourishing oils to add moisture. Application tip: You will need cotton pads or a muslin cloth to remove the oil - water on its own won’t remove it. Clean creds: All Planet Eve Organics products are Australian Certified Organic (ACO), which is Australia’s largest certified for organic and biodynamic produce. To attain ACO status, a minimum of 95% of all ingredients must be organic sourced from a certified organic supplier with the remaining 5% all natural and allowed as defined by the Organic Standard. Verdict: Consider making the switch to a cleansing oil if you find your skin feeling stripped or stiff after cleansing, or if you just enjoy using gorgeous, luxurious products! This one by Planet Eve Organics is highly recommended, and is now my go-to cleanser every night.
My go to cleanser to remove make up I have used oil cleansers in the past but this one was quite different. The oil cleansers I used in the past weren't natural so when you mixed them with water they formed a bit of a milky emulsion - this one doesn't. It takes a little getting used to, but once you do you won't be disappointed. I will start with a little tutorial on how I use it. I tend to use it when i have been wearing water proof makeup that is a bit resistant to an ordinary cleanser. Before I apply the cleanser I prepare a face washer by soaking it in hot water. I apply a few pumps (3-4 - i like to use a very generous amount) to my hands then warm it between my fingers. I then massage it all over my face, including over my (shut) eyes and eyelids. I probably keep massaging for 30 secs to 1 min. I then grab the hot face washer and start wiping off the oil cleanser. I usually start with my eyes so that I can open them and see what i am doing. I then keep wiping my face with the hot face washer (rinsing it between each wipe in hot water) until my face no longer feels greasy. If it feels like I havent gotten all the oil cleanser I will follow up with my normal foaming cleanser but most of the time I dont bother because the oil cleanser is also moisturising so i dont want to strip the moisturiser away. The cleanser has next to no scent. Whilst I like my scented products I actually prefer that it is scentless as it means i can smear it all over my eyes. It is so gentle. It never ever hurts my eye and doesnt dry my skin out - just leaves it silky soft and beautifully cleansed. It does an amazing job of removing makeup - even the waterproof long lasting makeup. I find that it removes just about every last bit of makeup. It comes in a pump bottle which is very convenient. I tend to use 3-4 pumps as i find this makes removing the makeup easy but if you only have a small amount of makeup on you could easily use less.
Cleansing oils are quite a smart invention. That is of course if they are formulated right and that’s exactly why I love Planet Eve’s. Someone in the beauty industry used their initiative and managed to put it into a product ready for everyone to use, which I can say unfortunately doesn’t happen often, and if it does it often turns out like a disaster.
This cleansing oil in particular is perfect for drier skin types as it helps to hydrate the skin while cleansing gently and without stripping the skin of its natural oils. It is also perfect for oily and combination skin types as oil is attracted to oil so it helps to balance out oil levels/production without stripping the skin and actually causing it to become oilier, which many harsh cleansers do. Most cleansing oils can often cause pimples as oil can clog the pores. This cleanser however has ingredients that contain antibacterial properties so breakouts are kept away!
When using this cleanser I was worried that a lot of product would be required in order to cleanse my face, neck and décolletage. Luckily I only needed about 3-4 drops of product to cleanse that entire area which is great odds as most cleansers I need about 6 or 7 drops total. I personally dislike products that require a lot of product in order for them to be effective... When I was removing the cleanser I was quite surprised with how much oil, dirt and makeup it removed. I was only wearing some tinted moisturiser and a few other bits of makeup like blush, bronzer etc. Cleansing oils are often used to pre-cleanse. This means that they break up any makeup or grime that’s already on your skin in preparation for your next cleanser. However most cleansing oils only remove a small amount of product.
For me I did not find the need to go through with another cleanser or use it twice as it removed a lot of product, so instead I just decided to use a toner as I wasn’t wearing anything heavy. I was very impressed with the packaging, one it’s the perfect size and doesn’t take up to much room and second of all it’s convenient. I hate cleansers that are in inconvenient packaging where you can never get the right amount of product out. So I am a big fan of pump dispensers, they seem dispense the perfect amount of product each time.
This cleansing oil scent was also very pleasant and lightly lingers on your skin after it’s been washed off. For me a product is really only truly effective if it can work well and deliver great results with several different products from several different brands, so overall it took me about one to two weeks to test it with all my other moisturisers and serums (yes I have that many) and it seemed to work pretty good with all of them even some of the bad ones which normally don’t get used.
Overall I really like this cleanser and I’m pretty impressed. I love its versatility of being able to be used on several different skin types with different results. I also love the fact that it contains Vitamin C and rosehip oil as both of these ingredients are known to fade scars and pigmentation. So if you are in the process of trying to fade your acne scars with makeup tips guide and still suffer from small amounts of acne this is the perfect product for you as its antibacterial and fades pigmentation.
It’s also perfect for just about anyone as it’s not tested on animals, cruelty free, certified organic, on the campaign for safe cosmetics, free of artificial fragrances, preservatives and all those other harsh chemicals which can damage our skin. TIP: Cleansing oils can also be used as an overnight oil treatment to replenish skin! If you have severely dry skin lightly apply it as a serum and follow with a lightweight moisturiser, but for other skin types just apply some as if it were your regular moisturiser!
Perfect cleanser if your face is wind/sun burnt.

I have a bit of a thing for oil cleansers…I guess I just like how thoroughly they cleanse yet are so gentle on the skin. Oil cleansers are fantastic for dissolving stubborn long wearing makeup making removal so much easier than with a standard cleanser. The Planet Eve Organics Certified Organic Facial Cleansing Oil is the first all natural cleansing oil that I have had the opportunity to review… I will start with a little tutorial on how I use it. I tend to use this cleanser when I have been wearing water proof makeup that is a bit resistant to an ordinary cleanser. Before applying the cleanser, I fill the basin with hot water and soak a face washer in the water. I apply a few pumps of the oil (3-4 - I like to use a very generous amount) to my hands then warm it between my fingers. I then massage it all over my face, including over my (shut) eyes and eyelids. I keep massaging for around 30 seconds to one minute. I then grab the hot face washer and start wiping off the oil cleanser. I usually start with my eyes so that I can open them and see what I am doing. I then keep wiping my face with the hot face washer (rinsing it between each wipe in hot water) until my face no longer feels greasy. If it feels like I haven't removed all of the oil cleanser, I will follow up with my normal foaming cleanser but most of the time I don't bother with this step as the oil cleanser is also moisturising and I don't want to strip the moisturiser away.
The cleanser has next to no scent. Whilst I like my scented products I actually prefer that it is scentless as it means I can use it all over my eyes without causing any sting or irritation. It really is so gentle. It never ever hurts my eye nor does it dry my skin out - just leaves it silky soft and beautifully cleansed. The cleanser does an amazing job of removing makeup - even the waterproof long lasting makeup. I find that it removes just about every last trace of makeup with no more effort than massaging for a minute. Harsh scrubbing is not required.
In addition to removing makeup, I also use this oil cleanser when my skin is suffering from breakouts or is overly greasy. I find that it helps to normalise my oil production and really aids in reducing the breakouts without stripping my skin. The reason the cleanser is so moisturising and doesn't strip the skin is that it is jam packed full of oils that are great for the skin. These include soybean, rosehip, vitamin E and Jojoba (which I have written about in more detail in the past). These oils would make a beautiful serum for the skin which means that they make an incredibly nourishing and moisturising cleanser (which is in real contrast to your typical cleanser which is stripping and does not contain any beneficial ingredients). I recommend this cleanser to anyone who is after a natural product that effectively removes makeup as the Planet Eve Organics Certified Organic Facial Cleansing Oil ticks both those boxes. I will definitely be purchasing this again.

What are you using to cleanse your skin? I’m going to make a bold statement here and if you feel the need to hiss and metaphorically throw stuff at me, I understand. If it’s a gel or anything foaming, I reckon you should bin it (or at least gift it to your teenage niece). ‘Mature’ skin (and by mature, I’m meaning anyone not in their teens) doesn’t much like foamy, skin stripping products. As we age, our skin becomes thinner and needs to be treated differently.
The majority of gel based cleansers are designed specifically for younger skin types. They pretty much go in and remove everything from the surface of your skin. Which is great for producing that really ‘clean’ feeling, but not so great for leaving beneficial oils behind. When we start to break out, we generally want to go in and scrub away the problem. Completely rid our skin of any dirt, oil or grime. Surely the less crap on our face, the better our pimples (and skin) will be? While that makes sense, it’s not the case. The more we strip and scrub, the angrier our skin becomes. It’s not a huge fan of having the beejesus cleansed out of it and will usually react by producing more oil to replace what’s been removed….
Our ‘mature’ skin LOVES a cleanser that doesn’t wash away all the good stuff. It wants to be nourished, not dehydrated into oblivion. Of course we can still clean off all the yucky stuff that accumulates over a day, but if we can do it in a way that actually adds good stuff back into our complexion, well we’re winning. It’s that exact reason that I’m suggesting your try an oil cleanser. …
Unlike a gel or even a cream cleanser, an oil cleanser will actually bond to the dirt, grime and yes, the oil, on your face and when removed in the right way, will lift it all off without any stripping. Think gentle sliding off of dirt and grime, not the forceful removal of the aforementioned. I’ve used oil cleansers on and off for a while now but have recently committed to a monogamous relationship with one when my skin started to play up.
I’ve been battling a series of long living pimple type ‘things’ on my chin and nothing was budging them. Since I’ve hit the (oil cleanser) bottle, I’ve noticed a real improvement. They haven’t cleared YET but they are definitely better, less red and my overall skin is far happier and less dry and patchy. The key to making an oil cleanser work for you is using it properly. This is not a product you whack on while under the shower, half asleep, while a toddler pee’s on your feet. Don’t let the fact that you need to add in a couple of steps scare you. I promise the whole shebang takes less than 5 minutes.
What you need to do is apply your product to dry skin. Pump out a squirt and massage that baby in while you’re waiting to hop into the bath/shower. You can let it sit on your skin for a little while if you life. I usually massage mine in, undress myself, undress my toddler, turn the shower on, adjust the temperature then hop in. Once your in, wet your hands and massage that water into your face. Most oils will turn slightly milky or at least become a bit more soluble. I usually focus my massaging on my chin as that’s where I have the issues. Once you’ve massaged, grab yourself a clean washer/muslin/face cloth. Run it under the water till it’s nice and warm. Wring it out and pop it on your face. I like to hold mine over my face for 20 seconds or so to really open up my pores, then I wipe every last bit off.
Your skin will feel quite moist and soft afterwards but that’s ok! It’s what you want. The hot water and washcloth will have removed any and all oil so don’t worry that you’ve somehow left a smidge behind….It’s ideal for all skin types; from oily to dry and pretty much all ages.This certified organic cream packs a punch when it comes to powerful antioxidants and naturally moisturizing ingredients.
