Mario Badescu Cleansing Oil is a new, mineral oil-free formula that’s available now at ulta.com ($16). Using a mise of rice bran, evening primrose, and lavandin oils this cleanser removes makeup easily without stripping skin.
Damn, you had me for a second there! I was really into the whole evening primrose thing but you threw in lavandin and it all went boom. Lavandin is of the same family of lavender oil and not something you want to be smearing all over your face. Although, this has some excellent oils including jojoba and rice bran the lavandin oil might kill it for some. The good news is it is closer to end of the list of ingredients so it may just have a small amount with luck.
I am so sadly unexcited about this. My makeup removal at the moment consists of the brilliant Paula’s Choice Omega+ Complex Cleansing Balm and a follow up with CeraVe Hydrating Cream-to-Foam Cleanser. I’m pretty happy with that. I haven’t been making a lot of use out of cleansing oils lately because I noticed many of the formulas I was using make my skin really tight and dry after using.
Mario Badescu Cleansing Oil is available now at Ulta.
