No matter how beautiful a girl is, it is still a must for us to wear make-up to enhance our beauty. Of course, wearing a makeup all day would require us to use a trusty product that would take off the dirt and cleanse our faces. As far as I know, there are three types of makeup removers—the facial wash, the cold cream, and the cleansing oil. Now, I will be focusing on the third type.
Ingredients: premium-cosmetic grade, Helianthus annuus (sunflower oil), fragrance (all-natural)
Price: P350 – 195 ml (but sometimes it’s on sale for P 295.00)
This cleansing oil from Human Nature has a yellowish color. When it comes to packaging, I don’t know if it’s just me or it’s poor packaging, because I totally wrecked the pump. To fix it, I ended up transferring it in another container. Meanwhile, It has a fruity and citrusy scent that smells nice. The direction on the bottle says:
*Pump two to three times on palm and massage oil all over face. Wipe off with tissue or towel. Wash off excess oil with your facial wash. Sit back, relax and enjoy the clean, bare-faced beautiful you.
This cleansing oil doesn’t emulsify, so after using it and removing the oil with a tissue, I have to wash my face again with my facial wash since there’s still oil on my face. It’s different when you use a cold cream since removing make-up with cream does not need you to wash your face afterwards.
Will I recommend it? I guess I would, but only to diligent girls. This is because for a gal like me who find it so tedious to massage, wipe, and wash my face every night, I’d still go for a much easier routine. Although the product makes my skin soft and keeps my skin from breaking out, I still have that oily feeling after applying it. Besides, the cleansing oil does not remove my mascara completely.
Disclaimer: Some products may not work for me, but can work well for others. This review is simply based on my experience.
