Ok, let me it be know I have no issues with mineral oil but some folks do. It’s difficult finding a cleansing oil without mineral oil as one of the ingredients and the most commonly asked question I get about any cleansing oil I review is, “Does it contain mineral oil?”
Second most commonly asked question, “Any cheap cleansing oil recommendations that are easy to find in the US?” Although cleansing oil is a common part of the Asian beauty regime it’s not something that’s quite caught on in the US in my opinion. Hell, if it did, we’d all go to the drugstore and have our pick of any number of cleansing oils just like any good Asian woman can at their local drugstore in Japan, Korea, etc….it’s simply not the case in the US in my opinion. Some brands do have cleansing oil available however you probably didn’t even know they had one. MAC has one, surprised? I think we commonly associate cleansing oil with Shu Uemura and ouch expensive.
Want readily available?
Want something to easily clean away makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara?
Want it without mineral oil?
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is the ticket.
Made without mineral oil, allowing for a deep clean, and readily available for purchase plus an inexpensive price tag keeps this cleansing oil at the top of the awesome pile.
Scared of cleansing oil? Weird idea isn’t it? Taking oil and proceeding to rub it on your face…well it could prove a great idea for those of us with dry skin but even than it sounds a tad on the strange side…wouldn’t your face feel oily and greasy after use?
No way. Cleansing Oil rinses clean away and allows even the most stubborn, I’m sticking around until you die makeup to be removed easily!
A cleansing oil to remove makeup!
So yes, indeed, essentially it is an oil. One of the great benefits of DHC’s version would be it’s inexpensive price tag and larger size. At near 7 oz and $25 this is a steal compared to Shu’s smaller $28 dollar 5 oz version. DHC is an Asian brand however it can easily be purchased from their website so when you run low you aren’t running around dealing with expensive airmail costs, etc..to get your fav cleansing oil!
I know a majority of you have already tried out cleansing oils and DHC’s version however for those of you who haven’t here’s how it works.
Simply pump two or three squirts of the oil into dry, clean hands. Rub it all over your face and massage on. Wet your face a bit to emulsify the oil (this is when the oil begins to turns white and milky), rub a bit more, and now rinse. Done! Makeup is completely removed and your face is refreshed and soft without feeling dry or tight. Even oily skin can use this without fear of feeling oily or greasy after use.
DHC’s Deep Cleansing Oil is extra thick formula wise and has a nice feel. It rinses clean away and removes makeup quickly and easily sans fuss and drama plus it’s free of mineral oil.
I’m not keen on the smell. Kinda plastic-y! But nothing too nasty!
- Anyone who hasn’t yet tried cleansing oils (this is a great beginner oil to get a feel for how they work)!
- Those with dry skin (I always feel like cleansing oils do considerably less damage and drama to my dry skin).
- Those who want an inexpensive cleansing oil that’s easy to locate and purchase!
- Those who want to remove makeup quickly and easily (this gets off even the most stubborn makeup).
- Nothing not to like here!
This is a must have in my opinion for the value alone plus the ease of just purchasing it and getting it delivered without the drama of E-bay or tracking down Asian oils that can prove expensive oil due to airmail shipping, etc…..Simply head to www.dhccare.com pop one in your cart and go! Easy!
Muse Approved for purchase!
