The moment Adeline washed this oil off her face for the first time, she gasped, "wow," because she'd never had any oil wash off as cleanly as this one. And it really did what she wanted it to do, which is to deeeeeeeep clean her pores, which felt cleaner than any other time after she washed, while her skin still felt soft and plump and not dried out at all.
So we call this our "Vacuum Cleansing Oil" because -- well -- it vacuums like a mofo. We used a base of Rice Bran Oil in here for its rich concentration in B vitamins and Vitamin E for soft, healthy skin, then added in Castor Oil as it is good for acne, and finally, a dash of Hazelnut Oil, as its high concentration of tannins makes its astringent and thus good for oil control. Also, despite my originally formulating this for oily skin, we've found that it works well for all skin types.
Try a travel size of the Oil Cleanser that will change how you think about oils on your skin forever.

Nudges oil-based impurities to the surface without painful and irritating extractions
Removes makeup and sunscreen completely
Washes off completely, does not leave sticky feeling on skin
Instructions: Dispense a pea-sized amount onto your hands and massage onto a DRY skin. Rinse off with warm water. Do NOT get product in the bottle wet, as it will compromise the effectiveness and preservation.
Cleaning my skin with oil was counterintuitive to say the least. I’ve been prone to breakouts periodically. Not anymore. This stuff also takes makeup off with ease. My skin is happy and glows. It also has helped my combination skin to be less dry in the dry spots and less oily in the oily places. I have given this as gifts and gotten each recipient hooked. Can’t recommend highly enough.

The best cleansing oil I've tried
I started using cleansing oils about 2 years ago after hearing about the benefits of double cleansing. I tried three other oils/balms and did notice a difference with each of those. But once I tried the Vacuum Cleansing Oil I left all the others behind. My skin felt cleaner and softer than it ever had. I wear a LOT of sunscreen and have oily skin and this cleanser does more to get my skin clean than anything else. I've been using it with the water-based cleanser I already had, but I'm excited to try pairing it with one of the other Sabbatical Beauty cleansers once that runs out.
One thing to note is that I do have to use more than the recommended amount to clean my face and neck. But even with that, the full-size bottle has lasted a while.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review. It's so wonderful to hear that you're loving the Vacuum Cleanser so much. We appreciate the feedback on the recommended use amount and will take that into consideration. We can't wait for you to try out our second cleanser options! - SB Team

This Stuff is Magic
Not gonna lie, it's weird to me that something with an oil base doesn't make my face oily. My brain parts every single time assume that my face will be greasy after I use this Vacuum Cleanser, but nope. It's clean as a whistle. And it feels amazing. So even though my brain parts are confused, my face is fabulous, fresh and foxy.
Hi Mathew, We're so glad that you're loving Vacuum Cleansing Oil. It really is magical stuff isn't it!? We're happy you're part of the Sabbatical Beauty family! - SB Team

Helped My Acne
I've tried this cleansing oil for about a month now, every other day before using the Kombucha cleanser, and I love it. I was certainly skeptical of the oil cleanser for my oily skin, but it did not worsen my acne. What it did was make the areas of my skin that were dry more moisture restored and happy. I did it every other day or as needed when I thought there were areas of my face that needed general moisture and care. If I use it every day, which I can, I have to be careful not to put on the other creams too heavily bc my face will look a little more oily by the end of the day. I love to use it for a face massage and am looking forward to trying it with the charcoal mask. :)
Hi Alexa, We are so happy to hear the Vacuum Cleansing Oil helped your acne and restored some moisture in the dry areas of your combo skin. We can't wait for you to try it with the Bethany Charcoal Mask! -SB Team
I am acne-prone and have oily skin, so I was pretty skeptical of oil cleansing. BUT, I have been changed! Vacuum Oil is a game changer. After use, I can literally feel air coming into my pores because I’m so clean. This is a staple in my routine now.
