Be honest, when you think cleansing oil do you automatically think Shu? In a Western world it’s possibly the first thing that enters your head since our market lacks the variety of cleaning oils that Asia is privy to!
But did you know MAC has a cleansing oil that rocks?
Part of L’Occitane Almond Apple Cleansing Oil’s appeal is fact it’s so readily available, cheap, and seemed like it would smell amazing! Add to that the fact that L’Occitane dubs it a great one for dull skin and hell, I was on board!
Let’s have a look shall we!
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!
Look under my vanity sink and in my wash room cabinets and closet and you’ll find any number of cleansing oil bottles. Meaning I don’t need more.
However, present me with a bottle of the new Shu Uemura Abracadabra Fantasy Cleansing Oil and I can get excited. Aya Takano lends a hand in the creation of this year’s Holiday Collection and created a beautiful princess riding her magical stallion onto a bottle of one of my favorite cleansing oils…
I wish I could remember where but I recently read that Grape Seed Oil was incredible for your skin and how great a job it does at easing dullness. My dull skin can use as much help as it can get so I reached for the bottle of The Skin Food Grape Seed Oil Cleansing Oil I had squirreled away in my “to be reviewed” pile.
