Well, I love this cleanser: DHC cream wash. It is very cheap, $9 for 2.1oz. And the tube will last you forever. For people who use Clarisonic: this work very well, foaming up nicely. Comparing to my beloved Kanebo - this one wash just as well and way cheaper.
I coupled this one with DHC deep cleansing oil and the result is very satisfying (clean but not drying). Using this along can be a little dry afterward. But if you read my previous post: You all know that I prefer cleanser that dry out my skin because a good cleanser does not discriminate between dirt particles and mineral oil particles in the skin. If you are concern about the dryness, you can use it at night only with some kind of cleansing oil or a toner will fix the problem right the way.
Anyway, pick this out and give it a try guy. Totaly worth it.

Available at for $25 (6.7oz). I bought mine when they have a sale some time ago, not much cheaper just a few dollar. I bought this to replace the Shu Uemura (SU) cleansing oil that i love. Smell wise, DHC can't compare to SU. However, it's not bad or any thing like that. Just smell very artificial i guess. The cleansing power is very good. It takes off my make up. However, I should note that: I don't wear heavy base makeup. I use BB cream. I don't do my eyes so no eyeliner what so ever. My mascara is washed off with warm water and i usually use makeup remover to remove it 1st before using the cleansing oil. In the end, I also use Kanebo cream wash to wash my face with a Clarisonic to make sure that nothing will stay on my face.

If you want a cheap and effective cleansing oil, I am highly recommend this. Well it's not that cheap but compare to SU. This is way cheaper with the same cleansing power.

Why should you use cleansing oil? Well, before using cleansing oil my skin condition was bad: acne prone, redness, and so on. My skin actually has been improving a lot since I apply this method: makeup remover -> cleansing oil -> cream wash. I love cleansing oil because aside smelting my makeup away, I also use it to massage my face while its doing it job. It likes killing 2 birds with 1 stone. (Notes: I don't like killing anything especially animals.)

I hope you will pick up some kind of cleansing oil after reading this post. For my part: I am in search of another cheaper and more effective oil next. I just like to try new things
