Cleansing oils are one of my favourite products to remove make-up, especially anything that’s waterproof or just difficult to get off. Even if I’m not wearing makeup I sometimes like to use an oil to cleanse my skin. This one by Bobbi Brown is a particular favourite.
I haven’t tried many oils, but out of the few I have tried, this is the only one I would repurchase and recommend. Although expensive, it’s super gentle on your skin and it should last you a really long time.
I have the 400ml, which is, to my knowledge, only released at Christmas, so while that size isn’t available, the oil is available in 200ml all year round as it is part of their permanent range.
I was a fan of using coconut oil to remove my makeup at one time but because it’s highly comedogenic I decided to stop using it. Thus ensued the hunt for a new cleansing oil.
There is quite a lot of cleansing oils on the market and I found the choice overwhelming. At Christmas I was kindly gifted a Bobbi Brown set which contained a 200ml size. It became an instant favourite of mine. I just love it.
It just melts away my make up and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. I do like double cleansing though so I like to use this first.
It has a gorgeous scent that’s not overpowering or strong and doesn’t linger once rinsed off. The scent reminds me of eucalyptus for some reason.
Sometimes I’ll use this all over and while it’s still on my skin I will grab some of my facial scrub and the combination of them both leave my skin looking and feeling great and radiant.
This is such a lightweight oil and doesn’t leave a greasy film on my skin. I hate when my skin feels heavy or greasy so I avoid products that leave my skin feeling that way.
I found with coconut oil that it started to feel heavy on my skin so I stopped using it.
For removing makeup I like to use one pump and gently massage it around my skin and use a muslin cloth or cotton pads to remove it.
If I’m just cleansing my skin but not removing make-up then ½ a pump is enough for me. When I use it in the shower I lather up my facial wash to rinse off any residue.
It doesn’t my eyes or leave a film like some oils do.
I quite like the pump as well because it’s easy to control how much you dispense.
Let’s be honest, it’s one of the more expensive oils out there. £33 is a pretty penny to pay for a 200ml oil.
Have you tried this oil? Did you like it? What oils do you recommend?
