Rated 5 out of 5 Takes off make-up while leaving skin soft
This product was recommended when I visited Shu Uemura store in Tokyo. The make-up artist said it was the best he had ever seen, and he was right! I still prefer removing waterproof mascara with a separate eye makeup remover, but the cleansing oil is extremely effective in removing makeup. It washes off easily with water and my skin feels very soft and moisturized afterwards. It also works as a facial massage oil while cleansing the face at the same time. The large bottle is a bit pricey but it last for months. It is worth it.

Helps balance my skin. My skin either breaks out or dries out with other cleansers (including so-called pH balanced ones), but this one does not. Thoroughly cleanses skin (no trace of waterproof eyeliner/mascara) and makes it feels soft. Does not sting. I do not normally write reviews, but this product makes me a loyalist. No need to double cleanse (tried it and it was too much for my skin). This is all the cleanser you need. The big bottle is worth every penny 'coz it lasts a long way. The only cleanser for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladyhawke I love the feel of this product on my face
I am in my 70th year and everyone remarks on the quality of my skin, even my beautician. I will not use any other product and recommend this to anyone of any age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Josey wonderful cleanser especially with cold weather
Ultime8 is great. I had never used a cleansing oil before and received sample with recent purchase. It is amazing. I followed the instructions in video as not sure how to use. I've never had a cleanser make that big of a difference. My skin is smoother, dewy and it is freezing out. I tend to get blotchy, ruddy and flaky in the winter but not now. Leaves skin ready for moisturizer. The pores on my nose are definitely smaller too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hetat Indeed the best cleansing oil!
I have been using the "pink" bottle oil and it's amazing already - I have big pores and it really makes my pores look smaller and my skin got smoother every time after I use it. And this time, I decided to try this ultime8 because reviews all say it's amazing. I got one bottle at its Thanksgiving sale - and I absolutely fell in love with it! The reviews are real! It's just that good - it truly removes all traces of either the foundation or the tint moisturizer light foundation I use - I mean it's just gone on my face! After use my skin got very soft and looks full of energy. I also have been using another brand cleansing oil for almost 9 years now, which is advertised as the NO.1, well - true, it is good, not a lie, but the result is no where getting close to Ultime8, because sometimes after I cleaned with that another brand oil and use cotton pad to put lotion on my face, I still could see tiny yellow leftover from the foundation on cotton pad. But not ultime8 - I don't see any leftover trace of any make up on there! It's just that awesome! I stock up some "pink" bottle ones on the sales event, but next time, I'm definitely going for this ultime8. I just wish the price of it would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1blackdog Great but my second choice
I have just been trying ultimate8 sublime oil - simply because I couldn't reorder the blue - white efficient - oil - in the large bottle at the recent sale. This is wonderful - that is wonderful. For me, I happen to like the other a bit more. My skin is getting up there - I'm 68 - but I still have some remnants of blemish problems and my skin is still not all that dry - the T zone still exists - and I like how the "blue" version freshens the skin. But this is superb. I never thought I would be "wasting" so much money on a cleansing agent -- but these oils are the first cleansers I ever tried which really do leave the skin better. Clean, but not stripped bare of all moisture. And the amount needed to cleanse the faces is small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Calianie Everyone needs to use this.
Why haven't I been using this sooner?!?! It literally wipes away every trace of makeup (even waterproof mascara) and leaves your skin feeling soft, matte and squeaky clean but not dry. It has a light fragrance and you don't need to rub hard to get eye makeup off (I have also used the whitening cleansing oil and this is far superior). I use two pumps every day and one bottle has lasted me almost a year. Love it!

I've been using the Shu Uemura cleansing oils for several years now, and they all do a good job, but this is truly worth the extra money. This is the only face cleaner I'll buy, and I've tried every pricey thing on the market.
