Would you like a little honey and tea with your cleansing oil?
Jump ahead for The Skin Food Honey Black Tea Cleansing Oil review!
OMG dudes. Story time….so hating on most of Skin Food Cleansing Oils because they come without a pump. WTH? I swear this irks me. I find cleansing oil is a little messy to have to squeeze out of a bottle rather than pump out. Did we run out of cash that we can’t include a bloody pump with the oil? Come on, so annoying.
Ok, got that off my back.
So yes obviously my biggest pet peeve about The Skin Food Honey Black Tea Cleansing Oil is it’s lack of pump. It comes a 6 oz bottle sans pump and allows you to tip the oil into your palm. I guess it’s not a major deal but I find it a little messy to use this way.
On another note the scent of this reminds me of MAC Naked Honey Salve. Instead of a warm honey smell it comes across more floral. I’m not keen on the scent as it does smell mature and grandmotherly but I’m slowing trying to adjust as the formula is quite good.
The formula is a nice thick, slippery oil. I like my cleansing oils to sport thicker formulas as they feel so hydrating on my skin and this definitely brings that to the table. As with any cleansing oil it can be used on any skin type and is applied to a dry face full of makeup including waterproof mascara, simply massage on, add a little water to emulsify, and rinse clean away. It works a treat at removing ALL my makeup including waterproof and makes my face soft and hydrated after use.
Overall, a very nice cleansing oil from Skin Food aside from a few things I didn’t like such as the smell and lack of pump.
The Skin Food is a brand sold within Korean and a few select Asian countries. The Skin Food Singaporean site ships worldwide however pricing is considerably higher on items so I’d suggest checking E-bay for better deals.
