I find cleansing balms the most efficient at removing makeup and I have tried and tested several of them, especially by Korean brands. I thought I would diversify to cleansing oils as well. I recently bought two and this post is the review of one of them. I generally hate the makeup removal process because it is messy, time-consuming (takes a while to get all the molten makeup off), and above all, most makeup removers leave some residue behind; especially waterproof eye makeup is hard to remove even with high-end makeup removers. But apparently, cleansing oils can eliminate this ordeal by making makeup removing process much simpler and easier.
A lightweight, antioxidant-rich oil blend that melts away makeup and impurities without stripping your skin. This Korean skincare secret is formulated for all skin types.
How to Use:
Pump into dry hands and massage over dry face to dissolve makeup, dirt, and impurities. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. For best results, use with a Konjac Sponge.
• Rosehip Seed Oil delivers essential nutrients to soothe, repair, and protect against environmental damage.
• Grape Seed Oil delivers skin-healing benefits with potent antioxidants.
• Olive Oil softens and hydrates skin without clogging pores.
• Pink Grapefruit Peel Oil evens out skin tone.
• Green Coffee Bean Oil invigorates skin and promotes cell turnover.
My Experience with Julep Love Your Bare Face Hydrating Cleansing Oil:
This cleansing oil comes in a clear plastic bottle, made of sturdy plastic and has a fancy pump dispenser. With each pump, it dispenses a coin size product, and for entire face and neck, two pumps are required. The best way to use it is to pump into dry hands and massage over the dry face to dissolve makeup, dirt, and impurities and wipe off with a wipe before washing it off with a good face wash and water.
My previous makeup removing routine was using makeup removing wipes to remove my face makeup, and for eyes, I used various kinds of makeup removers such as micellar water to remove my eyeliner and mascara. I used cleansing balms to make the process easier and now I can say the same for cleansing oils.
This product is a mixture of several face oils. It contains grape seed oil, olive fruit oil, rosehip fruit oil, grapefruit peel, vitamin E, coffee seed oil, sunflower seed oil, rosemary leaf extract and squalane. Even though it contains so many different oils with different properties, consistencies and comedogenic ratings, I loved the performance of this product.
The consistency of this product is like a dense serum but a very lightweight oil. Two pumps are enough for one-time use and can easily remove liquid lipstick, eyeliner and mascara. I usually gently rub my eyelids and lashes for a few seconds to remove all the stubborn makeup and then massage my face and neck. I then wipe off my face and wash it with a gentle face cleanser and that’s it. I go from full makeup face to makeup-free face in just a minute.
This face oil did not break me out, or cause clogged pores. It easily broke down the stubborn makeup and removed eye makeup and liquid lipstick. It did not make face excessively greasy or oily and was easy to wipe off. Once wiped off, it left behind soft feel to the skin. Rosehip oil is especially known for its properties to soothe, repair, and protect skin against environmental damage. Grapeseed oil delivers potent antioxidant benefits and olive oil softens and hydrates without clogging pores. I really love this product and I do recommend it to readers.
