I was terribly excited to pick up the Kopari Coconut Face The Day & Night Kit ($40) which includes the new Kopari Coconut Cleansing Oil as well as a few ofjy the other new Kopari Coconut Skincare goodies. I was going to spend like $75 bucks or something to snag all their new coconut skincare but this kit got me deluxe samples of each of the four newest items for $40 bucks. I’m one of those jump right in and look later types when it comes to skincare. So, I indulge in something full-size, hate it, and it ends up in the makeup graveyard. I love, love, love brands and Sephora lately for introducing entire kits that include deluxe sizes of all their latest offerings. Several years ago, if a brand released a line of new skincare you’d have to wait several months and around the Holidays you might get lucky and find a kit that included perhaps one or two of the “new” products. I use the term new loosely because by the time they got around releasing that box set that products would have been old already.
Nowadays, almost as soon as they release their latest products they are doing some cute kit that includes said offerings in a gift set that’s priced just right. That’s exactly, why I was loving the Kopari Coconut Face The Day & Night Kit.
Anyway, I thought I’d break the set up and review the products individually.
Here’s my thoughts and review on the Kopari Coconut Cleansing Oil.
My Kopari Coconut Cleansing Oil is 2 oz in size but the full-size is 5.1 oz for $32. So, the sample is quite generously sized. I can’t express how glad I am I didn’t pay $32 for a larger size as I actually didn’t love this formula and I would recommend not indulging in the full-size until you try a smaller version.
This is a light, thin formula that feels very gentle on my skin. It didn’t strip, didn’t make me feel tight, oily, nor dry. I can’t express how delightfully gentle this one on my skin. I really enjoyed the texture and just how easily it washed away. It did have a light, coconut water-like fragrance that was barely there.
It’s not your typical cleansing oil though as the formula is a lot thinner and a lot less oily than what I’m used to. It doesn’t quite emulsify or go milky during the initial and final rinse. It kind of just rinses easily off my skin without any effort at all. It felt very lightly hydrating. It some ways it reminded me of Pacifica’s Instant Karma Facial Cleansing Oil in the fact it felt like I was cleansing my skin with an facial oil versus a cleansing one. It actually has some pretty great ingredients and overall, I can’t complain about the texture.
It’s horrible at the task it should excel at. It leaves behind a ton of makeup during the removal process and my face never felt truly skin no matter how much I used. I’ve been using it for about a week and a half and no matter how generous I am with it, I still felt the need to follow up with another cleanser after using it since it left behind so much makeup.
It’s such a shame because I actually really loved how this left my skin feeling! The formula is light, easy to rinse off, and my skin felt quite smooth and soft after use. But if it can’t remove makeup, what’s the point?
Go try Kopari! But no dice!
