DHC deep cleansing oil

Deep Cleansing Oil *

Hello! It's another beautiful day here in Bournemouth, looks like Spring is finally here at last although I don't know how long it will actually last! I'm off to a friend's 20th birthday this evening so I'm spending the afternoon getting ready for that - who doesn't love a good pampering session? Last night I fell asleep still wearing my make-up - I know, it's terrible but everyone does it once in a while don't they - so I thought it was a good chance to test out this cleansing oil. It's not something I'd buy myself because I'm wary of using oil based products on my skin because it's already oily enough, but the bottle was actually part of our goody bags when I went to Cosmopolitan Careers Masterclass so I figured I might as well give it a go anyway. The cleansing oil contains a blend of olive oil to hydrate and vitamin E to moisturise. A couple of pumps should be enough to massage into dry skin, dissolving make-up, dirt and other impurities.
I wasn't super impressed with this product though, it feels really strange the first time you use it because it's literally like rubbing cooking oil into your face and that's a feeling I just can't get used to. It claims to dissolve make-up but in my opinion I don't think it does much of a better job than a normal facial cleanser. If you have dry or sensitive skin then this might be an ideal product for you because it does really very gentle and ultra-moisturising on your skin., I just don't think it's the right for me.
You can buy DHC Cleansing Oil online here. This sized bottle (70ml) is £11 and a full sized (200ml) is £21.50

What do you think of cleansing oils?

  1. I actually used a sample of this today and wasn't sure what to expect. It was a little messy just because the oil is a lot thinner than a normal cleanser, but it melted the makeup away so easily!
