What do I have to add to the discussion? Not much. Remember, my goal is simply to use up samples. And DHC hands out a boatload--they even stick them to the pages of their catalog. (Remember catalogs?)
So anyway, I like cleansing oils. I like that they rinse off—sometimes it takes a little persuasion, but it happens—and you don't have the endless series of icky greasy tissues to deal with.

But I've tried several cleansing oils at this point. My favorite is actually a different DHC product: DHC Mild Touch. For some reason, it doesn't have nearly the level of popularity that the original, (spoiler alert: much heavier and smellier) oil has.
I'm currently using SKII. It's a bit heavy, but it doesn't smell. Would I repurchase? Probably not. It's pretty expensive for what it is.
My least favorite cleansing oil is Josie Argan's, which is incredibly heavy and hard to spread.
So anyway, this DHC stuff ... was OK. It did emulsify--begrudgingly--when I added a little water. But it smelled. What was that smell?
You know, I like the smell of lavender. Within reason. And in the right place. Laundry, yes. Ice cream, no. And, as it turns out, face wash, no.
Although I will keep those tiny sample packets for travel. Because you haven't really lived until your deluxe-sample-size-at-Sephora-Josie Argan cleansing oil leaks all over your washbag.
