Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved for Years I have used this product for about 30 years, I stopped about 10 years back to try other brands and "forgot" about Laszlo for a bit. When I was unsatisfied with the complexity and ineffectiveness of the others, I "remembered" how much I loved this oil. It nourishes, moisturizes, and seems to penetrate to hydrate without causing breakouts. My skin is sensitive and dry, it helps both. Expensive? Not really when you know it works, and you don't need 5 other things. And for me, it lasts about 6 months, so I don't waste my time shopping, either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skin is so moisturized! This Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy cleansing oil is like nothing I have ever used. It goes on your face feeling very oily and I was very nervous at first. But it absorbs amazingly into your skin very quickly! My skin feels so soft, clean, bright, and healthy! The fact that it's cleansing and moisturizing at the same time only makes it better! The bottle is very heavy duty and the pump works smoothly, you can tell that they are proud of the product they created. I love how easy it is to cleanse my face and I can't get over how my skin feels afterwards! I highly suggest this cleansing oil and know you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite oil When I first opened I noticed it had a block to keep it from being pushed out. I think that is great. I took off the block and put about two small squirts on my fingers and started applying. Right off I could tell it doesn’t have any smell to it as you’re applying it. But it does have a light scent in the bottle. As I started applying in a circular motion I could just feel the freshness. My face is dry and after I put this on it made my face so smooth and hydrated. It literally instantly started hydrating my skin. It takes a minute to dry and then you don’t feel any oily residue behind. Just smooth hydrated skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of my holy grail cleansing routine Wow, am I impressed with this product! I received Erno Laszlo Hydra-therapy cleansing oil and was very excited to try it alongside my phelityl cleansing bar. Upon first use before the soap I was a bit worried about the oily feel on my skin, but once I used the soap right after I understood completely why this cleansing duo is so highly praised. My dry, thirsty skin felt amazing and pampered! I didn't even feel like I needed my Timeless skin serum, but of course I used it anyway, after I toned my skin. My face absolutely loves Erno Laszlo products, they are my favorite brand ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Time Favorite I like the feeling of washing my face before applying makeup to start the day, and fully removing it at bedtime. I have very dry skin and this product allows me to do that. Back in the 40s when I first started using Laszlo products I had very oily skin and felt sure that the double cleanse system is what kept me from having to deal with acne. Now it's helping me deal with deep lines and wrinkles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Greatest Oil Cleanser! One thing I noticed when using Emo Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Cleansing oil is that the next morning when I wake up, my skin feels soft and nourished. I actually wash my face first using a charcoal soap and then apply and clean my face with this rich oil. I haven't noticed my pores being clogged nor have I experienced any adverse reaction to this oil. It is on the heavy side, but it feels really good on my dry skin, especially since it is such a hot one. I like the quality of this oil and hands down, it is one of the better ones I have used. This comes off easily and leaves my skin nice and soft and the softness is still there in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This oil cleanser is fantastic! Like so many women that try so many differnt skincare products that is definitely me also and tried to many oil cleansers till I watched the video on all the vintage classic starlets that used Erno Laszlo products and flocked to his spa! And how well his skincare worked for them as well as royalty! This. is the most hydrating and skin plumping and leaving my skin so soft it is a fabulous oil cleanser especially for anti aging cleansing! Plus I exfoliate my face and neck and then I use this hydrating face oil and it leaves my face and neck so new born baby soft! Those are my own personal great results!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leaves skin soft I was hesitant in using a “oil” to cleanse my face as I would think it would make it oily but it did not. The bottle is fairly large and comes with a nice pump so you can dispense the amount you want. The product itself is an oil consistency so you won’t need much to use. You should use this in conjunction with the hydra-therapy cleansing bar (sold separately) for full results but it worked just as well for me without. It worked well removing my makeup and left my skin silky smooth. I will continue to incorporate this product into my nightly routine. I highly recommend everyone to try it, you won’t be disappointed.

Do you use this after you have washed your face? or is this to be used as a face wash out of the shower on dry skin, even if you have makeup on still?

Asked by: mleigh92
I use this oil in the morning on clean dry skin, appllying before using active phylityl soap and forming a lather to cleanse my face.  I use the same process at night to remove makeup. I have been a devoted Erno Laszlo user for over 40 years.

What are the best EL products to aid against wrinkles for aging skin?  I’m 65 and haven’t used EL in years, but remember good results when I was younger.

Asked by: Athena12
I am a big fan of the Firmarine Cleansing Oil and Bar as well as the new Firmarine toner/gel.  Hydraphel toner is also a winner and Transphuse serums day and night formulas will do the trick.  Amazing products.

I have used the pheltiyl cleansing oil/bar for a decade now. I'm now approaching 60 and after taking the online skin analysis, it was recommended to use the hydra therapy oil. What are the differences and why should I use one over the other?

Asked by: Sharynkel
I have used both the active pheltiyl and hydra therapy oil and I have to say I like the hydra therapy better. I have also been over a decade long customer and started with the active pheltiyl which after a while just made my skin oily it was like the skin wouldn’t absorb any moisture from it. The active pheltiyl oil was just basically another way to help get the makeup off. The hydra therapy actually moisturizes while it helps precleanse your skin.  So if you are having troubles with dry skin then I would encourage the hydra therapy. A few years ago my skin started to feel much drier and I switched oils and it made a world of difference! I also started using the hydraphil skin supplement Instead of the light controlling lotion and that also helped a lot with the dryness hope this helps!

Directions for using hydro cleansing oil and soap bar

Asked by: Sheeyundee
Thank you for your inquiry. To use our Hydra-Therapy Cleansing oil gently massage a generous amount in small circular motions on dry skin. Massage over face and jawline to open pores and trap dirt and makeup on your face. The follow with any of our cleansing bars, if looking for ultimate hydration we suggest following with our Phelityl Cleansing Bar to complete your cleansing routine for clear, balanced skin. First, dampen the bar under warm water. Next, gently massage the wet bar over your face using the rounded corners to stimulate circulation. You can also use your hands and fingertips to create a rich lather as well, remembering to include the delicate area of the neck. Rinse with warm water. Blot skin dry. Follow with toner, treatments and moisturizers to match your skin’s needs.

Can this be used as a substitute for active phelityl oil?

Asked by: Leopold
Yes, the Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil and Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil are meant to be used interchangeably. The Hydra-Therapy is the updated, mineral oil free version of the Phelityl. It is just as hydrating, however the formula feels thinner, due to the removal of mineral oil.

How is this different from the Phelityl Oil I've been using for years?

Asked by: Debstyle
The formulas are very similar in ingredients, however for the Hydra-Therapy, we have removed the mineral oil from the original formula. The oil will feel much thinner, but it is still highly hydrating and effective, without the heaviness of the Phelityl.

Hello, I have always used Phelityl Cleansing Oil with the brown soap (11:00 ).  I received a small bottle of Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil.  What is the difference?  Which one should I use?  I am 70 years old with good but a slightly dry skin?  Thank you.

Asked by: fergie222
Hi, I have been using Erno Lazlo since I was 12 (I am now 54) so I know exactly where you are coming from. The Hydra Therapy Cleansing Oil works, smells and feels exactly the same as the Phelityl. I think its just a new name. I have used the phelityl line for many years to and my skin is also slightly dry. I am a 10:30.
