Miracle indeed! I’m loving the Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil! This one you’ve got to try. I think cleansing oils are so misconceived as people assume they’ll make skin greasy or oily. Prior to trying a cleansing oil several years ago I had the same notion but please don’t be put off by such silliness. Cleansing Oils are wonderful and helpful aids to remove your makeup quickly and easily.
The Maybelline Clean Express Collection launched here in the US several months ago and it includes an eye makeup remover, cleansing wipes, and even a facial makeup remover but unfortunately the Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil is exclusive to Asia. Oh woe is me! Thankfully it is easy enough to locate across a wide variety of online shops but I’m hopeful for Spring 2014 that Maybelline might consider launching it here in the US as sadly our market is lacking a budget variety of cleansing oils!
Take a look!
Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil ($10.20 at Sasa.com) is a mineral oil based cleansing oil which contains an array of other oils as well such as jojoba, macadamia, corn, safflower, and moringa oils.
This has a soft, subtle floral scent which I’d liken to the scent of Charmin toilet paper. I dunno, Asian products love scenting stuff like toilet paper! Shrug! It’s very subtle thankfully and nothing as horrifyingly bad as Etude House Cloud Bubble Foam. Honestly, if you’re not looking for it you might not even notice the fragrance.
I tend to have issues with cleansing oils sometimes making my drier skin tight after use. The thing I adore about Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Oil Cleansing Oil is the fact it keeps my skin very soft and supple after use. I never feel like it has over stripped my skin or added any unnecessary dryness.
To use it you simply pump a few squirts into the palms of your hands and smooth it over your dry makeup applied face. Yes, dry face. Massage it around as much as possible. Now add a little water and the oil will begin to emulsify and go milky. I actually noticed it takes a fair bit of water to get it to emulsify which is unusual for a cleansing oil but this isn’t a bad thing, just merely worth a mention. Massage a bit more now rinse! Done. It’ll rinse clean away. It won’t leave your skin greasy or oily nor will it leave a film behind. It’s perfect for ALL skin types! Yes, even oily skin.
This did an excellent job removing my makeup and giving my skin a squeaky clean finish. Some folks like to double cleanse which I do if I have the time but it is completely unnecessary to follow up with another cleanser after using this.
I typically remove my eye makeup prior to using cleansing oil so I did take note this removed any excess mascara that my eye makeup remover may have left behind but I personally wouldn’t rely on this or any cleansing oil to completely remove ALL my eye makeup. I think using an eye makeup remover prior to cleansing is the smartest way to begin any cleansing regime.
I love this stuff. I just finished my second bottle recently and I have hopes at some point I’ll be able to get it at the local drugstore!
It gains a Muse Approval.
