dhc deep cleansing oil vs. dhc mild touch cleansing oil

I use the Oil Cleansing Method to remove my makeup at the end of the day.  When I finished my bottle of MAC Cleanse Off Oil, which worked wonderfully, I ventured out to different brands.  I think for women, there's always that relentless pursuit to find the perfect "everything.  Here's a quick comparison of the two Oil Cleansers that I am currently using:  DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and the DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil.

FIrst the Mild Touch.  According to the DHC site:

Mild Touch Cleansing Oil
Cleanse and hydrate your complexion with our shower-friendly makeup remover that utilizes moisturizing amino-acid based emollients to gently wash away cosmetics, dirt and environmental pollutants. Contains beneficial antioxidants to help purify skin and encourage softness.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.  According to the DHC site:

Deep Cleansing Oil
Try this amazing cleanser and you’ll see why it’s our most popular product worldwide. Dirt, excess oil, makeup—even waterproof mascara—and other pore-cloggers dissolve easily, leaving your face a grime-free zone that is soft to the touch. Its unique water-soluble formula rinses completely, so you’ll never see a greasy residue. Olive oil and vitamin E help ensure you won’t see dryness either.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil looks and feels mostly like its main ingedient: Olive Oil

The Deep Cleansing Oil has a runnier consistency compared to Mild Touch which has a clear liquid gel-like consistency.

A little test drive: remove this Bobbi Brown Gel liner which wears like iron all day.

Single swipe with a swab soaked in the product.  DHC Deep Cleansing Oil has the edge on this one.

After a couple of swipes, I can fairly say that both removed the same amount of the gel liner.

In conclusion, I found that both removed makeup effectively.. with DHC Deep Cleansing Oil removing makeup faster than the other.  Neither felt oily after washing it off with water.  Mild Touch emulsifies more than the Deep Cleansing Oil, but I found that I have to use more product to remove waterproof mascara, the Deep Cleansing Oil did the job with a single pump.  Neither products broke me out, but my sister had different results with the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.  Her sensitive skin suffered breakouts with it, but looked more like hives --maybe an allergic reaction to the product.  Also, as with all the Cleansing Oils I've used, I always follow up with my cleanser, to ensure that no residue is left behind.

    Another thing to consider are the ingredients.  Notice below how there are more ingredients added to the Mild Touch?  I also didn't notice it containing olive oil.

    Here's a tip: Do not wet your face prior to applying these oil cleansers.  The product removes makeup faster that way.
