I use extra virgin olive oil mixed with a good dash of castor oil, massaged in (not eyes) then removed with warm water and muslin.

God autocorrect REALLY wants to change muslin to Muslim! Awkward!

Ha ha ! Is the castor oil to cleanse ? Iv read you can use it to remove eye make up ?

Oil cleansing for me led to horrific spots that took a year to shift. Tread carefully. smile

I use a tiny amount of extra virgin olive oil. Don't get spots. Caster oil didn't work as well but olive oil cleared some inflammation.

I use coconut oil to remove make up. Not too much though as I get greasy quickly!

I have quite dehydrated and sensitive skin so am thinking starting with olive oil - would that work ? Or do you need some caster oil for the cleansing ?

I'm a very recent convert. Indulged and bought a Decleor Oil Cleanser, massage in and wash off with damp flannel. Every last bit of makeup is removed and my skin is brighter and feels so soft.

I use sweet almond oil (currently a huge bottle from Amazon, but I have bought the small bottles from the cooking aisle in Sainsbury's in the past!) and Primark cheap flannels.
People always say I have amazing skin, I think it's all down to oil cleansing

Yes def just try a bit of olive oil taken off with a face cloth then if it's not for you at least you won't have spent crazy money. For me it means zero spots but yes as pp said for some it can be disastrous, do tread carefully!
