NYX Stripped Off Cleansing Oil ($14) is one of several new skincare products that NYX Cosmetics launched for Spring 2017. I need another cleansing oil like I need a hole in my head but I was tempted by the new NYX Skincare items that launched and decided to try out the cleansing oil first. Not everyone is going to be excited about this launch as one of the main ingredients is mineral oil. But I’ve honestly, never had issues with mineral oil so, this wasn’t something that really effected my judgement of the product.
Although, I will say it is kind of small at 3.38 oz for $14. I feel like I can run through this bottle on two weeks with daily use. I think I said or at least thought the same thing about Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Oil which is $15.99 but at least that’s nearly double the size at 6 oz.
Well, enough ranting, let’s check out my review.
NYX Stripped Off Cleansing Oil is a fairly thick cleansing oil that emulsifies easily and removes dirt, oil, and makeup beautifully. It’s most comparable to Sephora Supreme Cleansing Oil in texture. If you’re sensitive it deserves mentioning that the formula has a very light fresh scent that’s barely noticeable. Although thick, it does the job of removing easily.
If you’ve never used a cleansing oil before or you’re intimidated by the idea of smearing oil all over your face, don’t be. Cleansing oil rinse clear away without leaving a greasy residue behind or leaving skin shiny after use. To use it, apply it on dry skin and massage in. Add a little water to emulsify the oil and keep massaging, now rinse off. Done! Clean, fresh skin.
This formula was quite nice and didn’t leave behind any trace of makeup however, I felt a little tight after using it which disappointed me a little bit. But following up with a good moisturizer after goes a long way to restore hydration to my skin.
I dunno if NY Stripped Off Cleansing Oil stands out as particularly great or ground breaking but it’s a nice enough at this price point. I do wish it didn’t leave me tight after use and a little bit of a bigger bottle wouldn’t go a miss.
