Makeup be goneI was a little apprehensive to put an oil on my face since I'm prone to breakouts but this product didn't seem to cause me any extra havoc. It did remove makeup well (even mascara!) but you do need to wipe under your eyes after you rinse to remove any excess. I liked that it didn't seem to strip my face and completely dry it out like some makeup remover cloths do.Read More
