I started using cleansing oils a few years ago but just recently started using them again on a regular basis. I have not tried many cleansings oil so I have recently purchased a few small trial/travel sized oils to try. A couple months ago while roaming the beauty isles of Walmart, I picked up Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil (I didn’t even know they had one until I saw it). I love Burt’s Bees, the brand as a whole as I’ve been using their baby products on my girls (ages 7 & 4) since they were babies because of the wonderful natural ingredients they use.
To be honest, I am not quite certain that cleansing oils are all that necessary; however, if you wear long-wear makeup like I do sometimes and don’t want to have clogged pores, then I think these are beneficial in that regard. I like using Cleansing Oils and Cleansing Waters as it help to break down long-wearing makeup for cleaner skin. Personally, I like to start with a Cleansing Oil + Foaming Cleanser + Cleansing Waters (I told you, I’m excessive like that..haha).
This 100% natural cleansing oil has a light-medium texture which applies well to the face. Massaging the product emulsifies on the skin, leaving skin soft, smooth, and feeling hydrated. It cleanses well with water and gave the skin a moisturizing feel without any residue feeling. It has skin-nourishing botanicals like Coconut and Argan Oils which helps to remove dirt and makeup without leaving a sticky residue or stripping away skin’s naturally protective barriers. It also cleanses without leaving an oily residue. My face didn’t feel tight or dry after use, so this is a winner in my book. It has a light fresh scent. I have combination/dry skin that is also sensitive but I do get a little oily around my t-zone. If you are oily or dry you might find different oils work better for you. It retails for CAD $15.99 for a 6 oz plastic bottle. If you’re new to cleansing oils or you’re in the market to try a different formula, this is a great affordable drugstore must try!
