Wahoo way to go Juice Beauty for taking the simplicity out of cleansing oil! Juice Beauty Stem Cleansing Oil is a new deep cleansing oil formulated with grapeseed and sunflower oils as well as fruit stem cells and vitamin C. It’s certified organic as well so if you’re really concerned about what’s in your skincare you couldn’t go with a better cleansing oil than this.
Here’s a few thoughts.
Juice Beauty Stem Cleansing Oil would likely be one of my newest favorite products if it didn’t take the simplicity out of the cleansing oil experience. Cleansing Oil is meant to be used on a dry face full of makeup. Simply apply it, massage, add a little water to emulsify, and rinse! Done!
I dunno this is just so weird. They recommend pumping the oil onto a warm damp washcloth, massage it on and rinse and follow up with another warm, damp wash cloth to completely remove.
Hello too much work.
I tried it there way and I tried it the traditional cleansing oil way of simply applying on a dry face. Well, do it their way because applying it using the traditional method isn’t a great idea.
This is formulated beautifully! Not to thick, not to runny, just right…it has a liquid-gel like consistency that’s slightly runny but not terribly so. It has a subtle lavender fragrance that’s quite pleasant. It feels very hydrating on skin and quite luxurious on skin.
Here’s my issue…
Used traditionally I find it doesn’t emulsify and proves very difficult to wash off. It leaves a thick film on your skin if you don’t use the wash cloth as per their recommendation. Typically adding a little bit of water to a cleansing oil allows it to break down and go milky but this does not do that. It does a fairly good job removing makeup but unfortunately it proves hard to remove using a traditional method.
The thing is…cleansing oil is supposed to be easy to use. It’s a one step cleanse should you desire and removes everything in one go while rinsing clean away without leaving a film or an greasy/oil feel.
Juice Beauty Stem Cleansing Oil sucks the simplicity out of cleansing oil. It is a nice cleansing gel though when along with a wash cloth. It remove makeup easily, leaves very soft, doesn’t strip, and is made up of some great ingredients.
I just think if they had allowed the formula to emulsify and break down easier I’d be more inclined to rave it and even possibly tuck it into my HG (holy grail) product line up!
I’m not really fond of rinsing my makeup off with a washcloth and I doubt I’m going to start now so unfortunately this didn’t work out for me in the end.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
