For someone who proclaim to not really like cleansing oil, you must be wondering why am I posting two cleansing oils post consecutively? I though I might as well get it out of the way so you all know that these are about the only cleansing oils that I’ve tried so far.
Other than Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil and DHC Deep Cleansing Oil that I’ve previously reviewed here, I’ve also tried cleansing oils from:
- The Body Shop, affordable and great scent! Great for cleansing makeup but still DHC and Fancl excel at removing makeup IMO. But then again, it’s easy to find here in Indonesia.
- Astalift, great at removing makeup, light texture but considering the price, not really memorable.
- Tatcha, one of the best cleansing oils that I’ve tried! I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this. Now that it’s gone I don’t know whether I’ll be able to write a review. It’s light, expensive (so I wont use it to remove makeup), yet it’s great for removing makeup.
Anyway, this post is actually not about cleansing oil but more about my current favourite cleansing oil: Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser . When it comes to cleansing products, Ms. Harper surely knows how to create a lush cleansers! Each and every one cleansers that I’ve tried from this brand is really something else.
First of all, let me tell you that it’s not easy to find a cleansing oil that can emulsify from natural brand. But this cleansing oil emulsify easily. Tata Harper’s Nourishing Oil Cleanser feels really gentle on the skin and it’s filled with ingredients that are good for your skin such as beta carotene, vitamins A, C and E as well as lycopene and omega 3.
How does this translated into the product?
The texture is medium – not too light nor too heavy. Easily spreadable on the face and it’s such a delight to massage it allover the face because the scent is just so lush. I use this as a second cleanser because this bottle of cleanser is bloody expensive! It’s a whooping £54 for 125ml! Crazy price for cleanser but I think it’s the extra miles that she did with this cleanser that makes it all worth while. It also does a great job at removing makeup, but why would I want it to do that?
Usually after I massage in the cleansing oil, I will just leave it for couple of minutes so all the nutrients can seep into my skin. Afterward, I will emulsify and rinse off. My skin love this so much! It feels soft, supple and bright instantly and it’s one of the cleanser that I reach out the most when I’m having dry skin or any problem with my skin. It’s heavenly for face massage if you’re feeling like a night time massage time. It’s especially great on the day that you’re wearing heavy makeup and you know you need a second cleanser that can cleanse well too.
While it can be used for all skin type, I feel that dry skin and mature skin will love this most.
Would I repurchase? Thinking about it.
