Take a look!
Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil has quite a cult following with many a fine rave from beauty junkies. In all honesty it isn’t my personal favorite cleansing oil of choice but I can’t deny I’m very impressed with how well it removes makeup.
Although it is recommended for sensitive skin I do recommend a patch test of some sort prior to using it all over your face as it does contain menthol and even non-sensitive skin will notice it produces a cool tingle when applied. This is actually one reason I dislike it because I find when I apply it around my eyes I get a burning feeling. Typically I apply cleansing oil around my lids/eyes to remove any left over eye makeup that my eye makeup remover might have left behind but I try to avoid doing this when cleansing with Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil due to the tingling and also the fact it leaves me with very cloudy vision (I feel like my eyes have been dilated after use and the cloudiness lasts for several minutes which freaks me out where as with other cleansing oils it typically disappears quickly!).
I really enjoy the cool, crisp tingle but as I mentioned those with sensitive skin might not love it. The thicker consistency reminds me more of a lighter cleansing gel and the fact the product doesn’t emulsify (goes milky when water is applied) makes it feel more like a cleansing gel experience.
On the upside it does do a stupendous job of removing every single little morsel of makeup from my face leaving my complexion squeaky clean without leaving me feeling tight or dry after rinsing.
To use you’ll pump about three or four handfuls into dry hands and apply onto your face face. Massage gently and add a little water to emulsify and break down the oil. Now rinse! Done! Your skin will feel fresh, cooled, and all oil, dirt, and makeup will be magically whisked away!
Although it has a few quirks to the formula I can’t deny Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil pretty much removes everything easily!
It’s available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
