Believe me, if you just use oil EVERYTHING will be removed. It removes makeup better than any soap I've ever used. If its removing makeup that easy it certainly is removing everything else. When I used to use regular non-oil or oil cleanser my skin was very dry and rough. With just oil my skin is now very smooth, soft and clear. If you dont like the oily film you can just take a wet washcloth and wipe it off. So easy!
