Introducing Dior Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil

Dior Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil

The new Dior Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil caught my eye at Sephora recently. I have to say I love the idea of Dior creating a cleansing oil and I wasn’t sure I’d love the price.

However, at $36 for 6.7 oz it isn’t nearly bad as I was thinking. I had visions of dropping $50 on cleansing oil from Dior so $36 came as a surprise. Shu’s version is 5 oz at $31 so not too shabby eh?

Dior Instant Gentle Cleansing Oil works on both and face and eyes and promises a formula suitable for all skin times. It contains Pure Lily Extract which helps inhibit skin inflammation.

I’m considering a purchase as soon as I finish up three of my current cleansing oils that I have to use up!

What do you think?


It’s available now at

    Hey, it’s also available as a freebie trial size from sephora with the code “DIORCLEAN”

    the sephora email blurb I got about it says it’s made from “pure lilies” (as opposed to sullied lilies, I guess?)

    It does sound interesting, tho, doesn’t it? And I’m as amazed as you at the price!! I thought it would be a minimum of $50 – $36 isn’t bad!

    Sephora has a “complimentary mini” with code DIORCLEAN and $25 purchase. I love cleansing oils, and you’re right about the price on this one being in line with many other brands. I’m really tempted to give it a try.

    I use DHC’s, I bought MAC’s one time, and didn’t like it as well. Then DHC came out with “Mild Touch”, and I was madly in love with it – I finally found my HG cleanser and was so happy. And then they discontinued it! Now they’re selling a “New” Mild Touch, and raised the price $10!. It’s $24 for 5oz. The ingredients are different too, so I don’t know if I will like it as much as the original Mild Touch, but I”ll probably try it when I run out of my current bottle. They also have a “Pore Cleansing Oil” that is $31 for 5oz, that I’d like to try.

    Looking forward to your review if you decide to buy it!

    I forgot to add that the DHC original Deep Cleansing Oil is $28 for 6.7oz, and now sells some of the DHC products and they have free shipping, plus a 10% discount with coupon code “reminder” (or you can add it to your “favorites” to get the discount).

    I saw this today and I’m extremely interested in it! I’ve really been into cleansing oils lately and they seem to be treating my skin really well. I just don’t know if I need to spend that much money? Although, with so much product, I suppose it would last a looooong time. What do you think?


    • 6/13/13 9:31 the Muse:

      i haven’t tried it yet amanda so don’t really have many thoughts yet :)


  • 6/12/13 22:53 melissa:

    I’m agree with ya on the price. Its about right for a luxury cleansing product leaning towards mid range. I wonder if it smells of eau-de-charmin. I am thinking i might replace my e-tude one of the moment with missha but honestly dior is only a few bucks more so i might try it!


    • 6/13/13 9:30 the Muse:

      i dislike the smell of the missha cleansing oil :( you have issues with it?


  • 6/13/13 2:24 Sara:

    Well, well, I am intrigued! I cannot live without cleansing oils so a new addition to the market is very much welcomed.

    Hi Muse, I’m almost about to finish mine and I wouldn’t repurchase. It takes about 4 pumps for the whole face and it doesn’t dissolve mascara well. LancĂ´me oil is much better. The smell and texture are nice. It will also sting if it gets into your eyes. Please try it with a sample with promo code as ladies above suggest. Maybe, it will be a hit for you:) Good luck!


    • 6/14/13 14:05 the Muse:

      thanks olga sounds like a bust…sample sounds good rather than indulge and be disappointed ;D thank YOU!

    I got the sample from Sephora in the mail yesterday. I had never used or heard of a “cleansing oil” before I saw it in their newsletter, so I have nothing else to compare it to.

    The smell nice and light, it felt good when I put it on and it was easy to wipe away with a wet towel. I don’t know if my skin was supposed to feel different or not, but it didn’t – maybe I was supposed to wipe with a dry towel, not a wet one? Really don’t know – no instructions on the bottle (which is how I found this blog – I was doing a search for the product). I still put on my nightly moisturizer after.

    Given the price and that my skin didn’t feel any different, I’d probably stick with my normal cleanser or Ponds cold cream

    Muse, I bought this out of curiosity and my main complaints are shallow
    I felt ripped off.
    For a Dior product, I want a pretty box, instruction paperwork.
    It arrived plain. As in, just the bottle.
    No box. No nothing.

      ugh that’s awful jessica I’m glad I popped it in and out of my cart so quickly!
