Sephora Supreme Cleansing Oil: Review

I decided to review the Sephora Supreme Cleaning Oil ($14USD, $17CAD) after seeing Julep release their own version. I bought this one when I was running low on my Shu Uemura cleansing oil and the idea of buying another bottle for 70 bucks was too much to bear so I wanted to try a cheaper alternative. So how well does it work?
I personally think it is a pretty good dupe for the one from Shu Uemura.
I apply a pump of the product, which has a light, oily consistency, on to my dry face (with makeup, dirt, oil, and all). I then rub it around gently, concentrating on my eye area, where I have my trusty waterproof mascara and sometimes smudgeproof eyeliner. After doing that, I simply rinse with warm water and everything will come off. I usually follow this with a face scrub or a foaming face cleanser because the cleansing oil leaves a slightly oily, no so squeaky clean feel. However, this is not issue because I use the oil mainly in place of a makeup remover instead of a face wash.
In conclusion, if you have issues removing stubborn eye makeup with removers or wipes and are looking for a gentler alternative, definitely check this one out!
