I wish I could remember where but I recently read that Grape Seed Oil was incredible for your skin and how great a job it does at easing dullness. My dull skin can use as much help as it can get so I reached for the bottle of The Skin Food Grape Seed Oil Cleansing Oil I had squirreled away in my “to be reviewed” pile.
What is it?
A cleansing oil to remove your face at the end of a long day. Removes all makeup including waterproof mascara in a simple step!
The Skin Food Grape Seed Oil Cleansing Oil is pretty much your average everyday cleansing oil. To use it simply squeeze a small amount onto your hand massage into a dry face full of makeup, add a little water to emulsify, and proceed to rinse. Presto! Done! Makeup gone.
The formula has a nice slippery feel and a not too thick, not too thin consistency that’s just right. Oddly enough it has a very subtle pineapple-like scent or at least to me it smelled like pineapples. The formula does a great job of removing all my makeup and doesn’t leave behind left over mascara which is great as some cleansing oils are guilty of this. Best part about it is the fact that my face seems to be really be benefiting from the grape seed oil as it looks a little brighter since using it.
HATE the packaging. It’s a squeeze spout which you have to tip and pour into your hand. I prefer a pump on cleansing oil for mess-free application.
Who Might Like It?
- Anyone looking for a great cleansing oil to remove all their makeup including waterproof mascara!
- Anyone who likes a one step cleanse.
- Anyone who likes the idea of a little grape seed oil in their skincare (hey, could prove beneficial in the long run).
Who Might Not Like It?
- Anyone who doesn’t like the cloudy eye syndrome (like most cleansing oils you may experience temporary cloudy eyes after use).
- Anyone who isn’t keen on cleansing oils.
I liked it alot. I think it’s probably one of my favorite oils from Skin Food to date. Aside from the packaging hate I’m feeling at the moment, I’ll probably buy again!
The Skin Food is a Korean brand available within Korea however certain online sites such as Sasa sell the brand and also the Singaporean Skin Food website. However, these sites do not sell at retail so things are considerably expensive compared to Korean prices.
