3 stars out of 5

Formula 10.0.6 Bare Face Beauty Skin-Moisturizing Cleansing Oil ($8.99) is probably one of the worst products you can put on your face if you’re prone to breakouts or one of the most wonderful ones if you’re dry.

It’s debatable.

Formula 10.0.6 Bare Face Beauty Skin-Moisturizing Cleansing Oil is delicious (and quite heavily) scented makeup remover that contains a host of oils including grape, sunflower, and almond oil. It also contains shea butter. Sounds great right?

Did I mention it smells like suntan oil in a bottle? It does. The fragrance is lovely but I can see it being a little heady for sensitive user. It has a tropical vanilla Banana Boat suntan oil thing going on that’s positively delightful but again, not ideal for sensitive users. This comes in a 3.7 oz bottle with a pump and it’ll set you back around nine bucks!

This all sounds amazing doesn’t it?

Not so much. It’s sort of acne in a bottle for anyone prone to breakouts. But why!? The combination of oils are super hydrating and give this a thicker texture however, they also don’t completely emulsify or wash off your skin. If you it seven straight days without double-cleansing (as hey, some folks aren’t about the double-cleanse and that’s quite ok) you’ll likely experience a blemish or two. It’s just a little too rich to be left sitting on top of your skin in my opinion.

That being said, I think drier skin types will love it. I’ve read reviews that says it fails to remove makeup but I had no issues. It removed my makeup just fine and works on dry skin just like any other cleansing oil. What it does not do is rinse completely away. Water does bead off it and about 75% off it remains on my skin after I cleanse as the formula simply doesn’t not emulsify or break down the way a traditional cleansing oil does. I always read comments from readers that tell me, “Cleansing Oil? I can’t use that! It’ll leave me greasy and oily!” Cleansing oils do not leave your greasy nor oily. They breakdown easily with the addition of water and they rinse clean away without leaving a film behind. Sadly, Formula 10.0.6 Bare Face Beauty Skin-Moisturizing Cleansing Oil does not. For all intents and purposes it feels like I’m applying cleansing oil to my face and trying to rinse it off with water. Water simply beads off it. The solution is a double-cleanse as once I follow up with the second step of my cleansing routine the oil is removed. However, if I’m doing a quickie cleanse with just cleansing oil this wouldn’t be the product I’d reach for. It does leave my skin super soft, super hydrated, and does remove a good deal if makeup but it’s super difficult to remove and not a one and done type of cleanser. It reminds me of a lot of Pacifica Instant Karma Facial Cleansing Oil in the way it performs.

If you have dry skin, Formula 10.0.6 Bare Face Beauty Skin-Moisturizing Cleansing Oil is idea for you but anyone else is best to stay clear!

Where to buy

Ulta

Formula 10.0.6 Bare Face Beauty Skin-Moisturizing Cleansing Oil is an oil-based makeup remover that’s 3.7 oz and $8.99. This is a heavily fragrances cleansing oil that has a tropical vanilla tanning oil scent that was quite delightful but might be overkill for sensitive users. I do hesitate to even call it a cleansing oil since it doesn’t emulsify upon contact with skin and does leave behind a greasy, oily feel on skin. The formula is best used on drier skin as it might cause breakouts on anyone with acne prone skin. I recommend using it in a double-cleanse routine since water does bead off it.

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Shea Butter Ethyl Esters, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Sorbitan Oleate, Polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, Tocopherol, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Fragrance.

Pros

Very hydrating.
Contains some very good oils.
Affordable.

Cons

Highly fragranced.
Doesn’t emulsify or rinse completely away. Double cleansing required.
Not ideal for acne prone skin.

Who

Formula 10.0.6 Bare Face Beauty Skin-Moisturizing Cleansing Oil isn’t quite for all skin types but drier ones might just appreciate this highly hydrating makeup remover!

    I’ve actually been loving this formula and haven’t had any problems using it and it removes my makeup without any hassle. It does leave behind a little oil BUT it has saved my skin this winter. I like that it doesn’t strip my skin leaving it feeling dry like a lot of cleansers do to me and that I don’t have to double cleanse with it. The smell is heavenly too! People who are ‘sensitive’ to oils may not care for it but I have pretty normal skin and will be buying more when I’m out!!

      Happy to hear it. I liked it too but I def have to double cleanse as it does leave behind a lot of oily residue! It doens’t emulsify the way traditional cleansing formulas do sadly!

    I cannot get over Ten O Six, was that how it was spelled? Rebranding itself with a computer software release type moniker. Makes me howl. 10 0 6 was like Seabreeze, filled with every ingredient we now know not to use. To be fair, that was then, and I was an oil slick, so…. Yeah, no to this. Going to try the Klairs black oil next. I like the Klairs blue calming, but it absorbs so much that it won’t last long. New to Klairs.

      Yep. I also thought it was strange that they chose those particular numbers for a name.

        EEPS! Don’t mind me. I just looked up their company website. It is the same company created by a chemist in 1933.

        Muse is also Maestro!

    So glad you tried this! Was debating between it and burts bees so after shelling out the $14ish for BB (which is pretty ehh, not quite milky or oily enough to do any major makeup removal) this was going to be my next purchase for the price point. I think the shea moisture rose oil cleanser is probably the best one I’ve tried so far.

      Let me know what you think Jonna 😀 I’d be curious if you like it or not!
