Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent cleansing oil I really want to love this Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil as I love the packaging and the scent. It is a good makeup remover and does not dry out my skin. Benefits are : Intense hydration, nourishing, softening and smoothing skin with key ingredients like essential oils including avocado, jojoba, apricot, grapeseed & sesame Oils. However, besides being a makeup remover, I really have not seen much improvement on my skin yet. Note it has to be used in conjunction with a cleansing bar. Anyway, I will continue to use it and hopefully will see a more significant result in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 in 1 Cleanser I was kind of hesitant to try this cleanser because oils like this have made my skin very dry before. But I did try it a few times anyway and I fell in love with it. This cleanser can be used as a moisturizer and as a cleanser. So you dab some on your facial skin and then you can use any mild soap to wash your face. You could also apply it to your skin and just gently massage it and leave it on the as a moisturizer. I love that it's so authentic and innovative. It's innovative because of it being a cleanser and a moisturizer (two in one kind of thing) as well as the ability to re-close the packaging after use. I didn't know that it was a 2 in 1 kind of cleanser. I like the fact that it didn't dry my skin. On the other hand, it adequately moisturized it. The best part is that it feels so gentle and light on my skin. I loved massaging it into my skin and it felt really soft. It doesn't have a strong aroma. Pro tip: you don't need to use too much of it because even a small amount works. I used this as a moisturizer as well as a cleanser. I managed to remove my makeup very easily with it. I love the packaging too because you can put the small piece back onto the "neck" of the bottle after usage so it prevents from leaking during storage. There are no cons but only pros regarding this cleanser. I'd definitely recommend this to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can’t live without it! I live in an extremely dry climate and this oil finally has helped balance my skin out and made it feel hydrated without feeling too oily. I love it cause it helps my makeup come off while hydrating my face. I notice a huge difference if I even go one day without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my skincare routine I’m relatively new to advanced skincare, and this is my first time sticking with a cleansing oil in my routine. I briefly tried a cheaper one a few months ago, but I immediately broke out and abandoned the concept. But then I decided to give a higher quality product a try and it’s really made all the difference. It gets my makeup off easier than all the other products I’ve tried, and leaves my skin very hydrated and soft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Retains moisture while removing make-up The Hydra-Therapy Cleansing oil cleans without stripping the moisture from my skin. It feels hydrating on the skin and effectively removes make-up. One pump is all you need. Used in conjunction with the phelityl bar, this product is great for dry skin or those with normal/combination skin in the winter months or dry climates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I have been using this cleansing oil for a while now. You can use it alone or pair it with the cleansing bar. My skin is very prone to breakouts, so whenever I see the word "oil" it literally scares me. I think that it will make my skin oily or greasy feeling. This cleansing oil is very different. I love to use it by itself to take my makeup off. It dissolves the makeup in no time and is so easy to wipe off. My skin is left feeling so soft. There are other days where I just pair it with the cleansing bar. This is the best duo ever. My skin's PH balance is restored and my skin is soft to the touch and feels so much better. My pores don't get clogged and my face feels so rejuvenated. You just need to use a little bit. A little bit goes a very long way. This bottle should last for a very long time. I have been so happy that I have gotten to test this out. I have never used this brand before, but I am in love. I will definitely be adding to my collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hydrates well! I tried to use this product alone, but it definitely works better with their soap. The soap gives more of a deep cleansing feel and this works well afterwards (or as a make up remover at night). My skin felt very soft afterwards but the "wet" feeling (from the moisturizing property) does stay a bit. After 30 mins, I was comfortable enough to apply foundation and didn't have any issues. At night, this helped remove my make up greatly and I didn't need to apply my separate moisturizer before bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soothing and hydrating! When I was younger I never wanted to bother with an extra cleansing step as it didn't seem worth the time. Boy was I wrong, this cleansing oil is wonderful, my skin has never felt more soft or supple. I wish I had splurged years ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best! If I could rate this produce with 10 stars I would. Ihave used Laszlo almost exclusively since I was first "clocked" at age 30. This is amost forty years ago now. I am nearing seventy now and am routinely told that I look between 10 and 20 years younger. Aside from my use of Laszlo, I have never had any "work" done. Double Cleanse is all the rage now but Dr. Laszlo came up with this concept many years ago. It worked great then! It works great now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! This is by far, one of the best products I’ve used in a LONG time. Getting older, I’ve went from oily skin to more of a combination (more so dry) skin that gets especially dry in the winter. I’ve used this nightly for about 2 weeks, I have had zero signs of dryness! My makeup on top of my skin everyday looks flawless, no patches, flaking or weird build up. It’s light and gradually soaks into your skin. Highly recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love!! This stuff is amazing and I'm so glad I was able to try it! I was so afraid it was going to leave my skin feeling oily but it didn't at all. My skin feels so hydrated and fresh after this product. My skin has always gotten dry so easily and very few products I've tried have helped. This is definitely one if the best I have used! It's so gentle on my skin and I feel like a new woman after. Love love love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleansing Oil My skin can get very dry during the winter and needs as much moisture and hydration as possible. At first I was worried that using a cleansing oil would make me break out as I tend to break out easily. I can’t tell you how much this cleansing oil has helped me survive this winter season! Your face feels so clean and soft after using it. I can’t imagine surviving another winter season without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I used this every other day (switching with the white marble). My skin can get really dry in places and yet oily in others and I felt this moisturized the dry spots without aggravating the oily spots. It really helps when taking off makeup especially. Perfect as the first step in a double cleansing routine. I use the Erno Laszlo detoxifying Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar as a follow up cleanser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Effortless Delight I like that this cleansing oil has a very light fresh fragrance and a skinny nozzle on the pump dispenser for the perfect amount to be used without any waste. Definitely avoid the eye area though as I made that mistake and it was quite irritating. I also love love the Laszlo Sea Mud Soap for an iconic cleanser and I keep that bar in the shower for deep cleaning and brightness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves my face fresh and smooth This is such a wonderful cleansing oil! It absorbs quickly in the skin and it is very lightweight. I was hesitant at first because I thought it would leave my face feeling “oily” but it doesn’t at all. After using this cleansing oil, my face feels fresh, smooth and so soft! I will definitely be using this as part of my regular skin cleaning routine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WOW Dont let the name fool you this is not oily I have been using Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil for a couple weeks and I am very impressed. I was a bit worried at first that it was going to be oily and cause my skin to breakout but it didn't. My skin feels fresh and clean without a oily residue. The Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling fresh and hydrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleanser The Hydra-Therapy Cleansing Oil is the perfect mix of oil cleanser and makeup remover. It feels so good when I put it on my face. The oil is not thick. It’s just enough to coat the face. it helps my face retain moisture. It’s also great for removing makeup. It also absorbs into the skin very easily so there’s no residue. I love this stuff!

My skin is finally hydrated and smooth again. It is so light on my skin and i feel refreshed after using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves my skin moisturized and so soft! This cleanser is so hydrating! It comes in a large bottle with a great pump - the pump dispenses the perfect amount of cleanser and doesn't clog. The cleanser removes makeup well. It leaves my skin so soft and smooth feeling! Despite it being an oil, it hasn't caused my skin to break out.

The cleanding oil has a nice water consistency to it and smells great. Unclogs my pores from constant makeup usage helps keep acne away. My face smells great and feels refreshed.

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.
